    This location is perfect for cruising out of Galveston. It is cheap and feels safe. It is a very old property and in great need of renovation; however, it was clean and for the price it was just what we needed.

    My daughter and I are planning on taking our first cruise in May and was wondering if there is a taxi or shuttle that will take you to the cruise port? And if we can actually park the car there for 4-5 days without being charged. If not where the closest place to get to the port is?

    I do not believe there is a shuttle, but I do remember seeing "cruise parking" very near by. I would be hesitant to leave my car longer than overnight in that particular area.
