Checking in: Don’t be surprised to soon see a massive makeover of mid-century hotel The Commodore on the Beach, 3618 Seawall Blvd. in Galveston.

JMK5 Holdings, founded by Friendswood attorney and developer Jerome Karam, this month finalized acquisition of the 92-room hotel. Karam’s son, Joshua Karam, will lead a renovation and rebranding of the property built in 1966. Jerome Karam’s daughter, Joann Marilyn Karam, will lead the interior design of the hotel as they expand their roles in JMK5’s ever-growing project portfolio.
