Default Transportation from Airport to Houston (La Porte) Port

We have friends flying into Houston-Hobby airport the day before their Saturday cruise in January. Would like to hear information as to what transportation options are available from the airport to the ship should they decide to stay overnight near the airport; or to the port area for overnight accommodations near the ship. Also... any suggestions for overnight accommodations near the airport or the port that might offer transportation?

Hi JimmyD,

As far as getting from Hobby to the port I can only report what I've read since we drive to Galveston. Most people either rent a car or hire a limo/van. The most popular seem to be Enterprise and Galveston Limo.

We stayed at the LaQuinta in La Porte. Like all LaQuinta's it's very basic. At that time they offered a free shuttle to the port and there's a restaurant right next door. I don't see the shuttle listed anymore , but here's the link to the hotel: http://www.lq.com/lq/properties/prop...archState%3DTX

I'd suggest that your friends call and see if they still offer the shuttle. It's only about 5 minutes from the hotel to the port, so a cab might do just as well.
