Default Galveston Hotel

Need a reasonable priced hotel that allows cruise parking and has a shuttle.

We like Commodore On The Beach. Their prices are usually between $60-$70 (depends on day and if anything special is going on in Galveston) They don't have a shuttle anymore, but will call you a cab whenever you want to go to the ship (about $8.00) You can check their website for more info.

We have stayed at both the Best Western and the Hilton. We got a rate at the Hilton for $99.00 and a free shuttle. The Best Western was $61.00 but no shuttle

I just read that Best western doesn't have a shuttle. They better have, because they are advertizing there is one. Could this have changed since you were there? Anyone else know the answer?

I just checked the web site and it's no longer on there that they offer shuttles. i'm glad i read this now instead of later once we got there. (Best Western)
