We usually stay at higher end places but for fishing trips to Galveston and Bolivar Peninsula, this is a great spot. Right by the Ferry, we thought it would be noisy but not at all. Place was dated but clean and we enjoyed our stay. The staff was almost no-existent, so might be

Yes, this is a budget hotel and my expectations were in line with that. However, it was hard to find anything that was done right here. We only stayed because we arrived around 12:45AM for check-in for a one-night stay.

I found the place more then adequate. The staff was very helpful. there was a free shuttle to the Cruise ship port. I would stay there again If ever going on another Cruise out of Galveston. Was more then happy with the bang for the buck!!

They were very unorganized on check in. The pillows on the bed are literally non existent. Had to chase two more down to get it to be an inch thick. The bars are soap were tiny and thin, the shampoo and conditioner were together in a tear packet without an easy start tear place.

Do you have cruise parking and shuttle
Although we did not use it, they did offer cruise parking and a shuttle service. For whatever it's worth, we left the hotel about 10am and there were already a lot of people lined up to take the shuttle. The hotel is about a 10 minute drive to the terminal so perhaps a taxi or uber would be a good alternative to shuttle getting there. Have no idea how their shuttle works for the return.

Hello, I know others have asked this queation, but there was no answer..... is there a shuttle from your hotel to the cruise port?
The hotel will carry you to the ship. You will need taxi for ride back. It's very close and not expensive.

How far is this hotel from moody gardens?
My guess would be 5 or 6 miles. The hotel is just off the strand right on the port. Moody gardens is on the other side of 45.

"There are no bad rooms here, walk across to the Ferry, No food close so either bring food or order from the pizza menu."
"Stay somewhere else."
