Default Free Parking in Galveston

Does anyone know of any hotels in Galveston that offer free parking for "cruisers?"

I stayed at the Harbor House in June 2008 and they offered a week's parking for $20. We had booked two rooms side-by-side and they fouled it up and had our two rooms at opposite ends of the floor. As a result, they comped the parking. This is a pricey hotel but it's a couple of hundred feet from the cruise ship dock! Beautiful rooms and you can walk to the ship.

My husband and I went on a cruise in April 2010 and we stayed at the Hotel Galvez (beautiful hotel), the hotel offered us the free shuttle to and from the pier and only cost $15 for our vehicle to stay there for the entirety of the week. I do plan on doing the same arrangement in September.

Quality Inn near seawall has free parking. That is where we are staying for our cruise in Sept.
