We stayed in the Holiday Inn on the Beach in Galveston (they do have a leave your car rate but we flew in so we didn't have to leave the car - but they do offer this as many people there checking-in with us were leaving their car. They have a free shuttle to the pier in the morning so we booked our time slot upon arriving and had no issues with the hotel whatsoever. This is a great hotel going through renovation and everything was very nice and clean. Very helpful front desk and the pool area was very pretty. You could walk to the Rainforest Café, etc. but their shuttle would take you there and back too.

The Holiday Inn is nice. We left on our cruise on Superbowl Sunday so most places were booked. We stayed at one of the older hotels. I can't remember the name right now but I wouldn't really recommend it. I know that sounds helpful...My point is, unless you want luxury (The Galvez is one of the oldest, most beautiful hotels) then stay with the larger chain hotels like Holiday Inn, Ramada, etc. Also, if you're going to park there, confirm with the hotel whether they have their OWN shuttle bus or if they just pay for your taxi. Our hotel paid for a taxi which was clean, etc but if was only 1 specific taxi company. So, when we got back, waited in the taxi line, then we found out they to call this particular taxi company. It was kind of disappointing.

Anyway, Galveston has a web site with all the info you need. You can book online through Galveston tourism or you can call an 800 number for them or call the hotels directly.

Have fun!
