Have a hard time finding the right hotel in Galveston. Will be staying two days before we cruise. Have read a lot of bad reviews in Galveston. So now thinking about the Habor House but just checking with my cruisemates to see what you think. Thanks

I don't know who wouldn't like Galveston. Harbor House is right on the pier and you can walk to the terminal if you like and if you can carry your luggage about a block. The rooms are huge and rustic. It's like a warehouse that has been restored as a hotel. Plenty of entertainment around, plenty of restaurants also. Oh, there's a beach also.
Cruised more times than I can remember.
Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.
Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
i wanted to stay at HH the two days we were in galveston b4 oiur cruise but it was the MOST expensive hotel in town. Much more than moody, galvez, etc. (maybe luis was more..dunno)
honestly i gave up when i got a 69.00 rate at Baymont (about 2 blocks from seawall) hotel, we found it very clean, a year old and the WIERDEST but very cool view from our little balcony. It was an VERY old deserted cemetery. some crypts and stuff but most were broken up. obviously land untouched due to the cemetery, but wow i thought it was really cool lol.
We were going to stay at HH for our upcoming cruise in Jan. The price was way out of our budget. Got a good deal at Baymont like Liz. We will be there two nights before our cruise. If it was in the budget would have opted for HH. Gotta do what you can afford.

I haven't stayed at the Harbor House and it sounds like it would be out of my budget too. I would rather spend my money on the cruise
We did find a great restaurant we liked though at the Harbour. We dined at Willie G's and sat next to the window overlooking the Harbour. We timed our dinner so we could watch the ships sail in the afternoon the night before we sailed. The food and service was excellent and worth a trip back to Galveston for us.
We have stayed at many of the hotels, and our favorite is the Holiday Inn Sun spree. It is on sea wall and about 9 dollars to get all four of us to the port. It is centrally located to everything, and very clean. You even get towel animals on your bed.
The place I don't recommend is the Best Western. It was good in it's time, but is worn out.
We thought about HH but it is in a more expensive area. Restaurants, etc.
