Just wanted to share what I think is a great deal on a hotel at the port in Houston. Have booked a room for end of May, the night before we cruise. With AAA discount, it's only $53.96 (10% more w/o AAA). Room has interior entry, fridge/microwave and there's a complimentary hot breakfast (sausage, eggs, etc).
They also have a hotel shuttle to the Pier for $5.00 pp. You can leave your car in their lot during your cruise and they say the police station is right across the street. This hotel is 2 miles from the pier. Unless someone else has found a better deal...this one sounds perfect.
