I booked my son at the Scottish Inn for the night. The hotel was clean, reasonably priced and the staff was friendly. If you are looking for a place for a day or two at a good price, consider the Scottish Inn.

We were looking for somewhere inexpensive to hang out for three nights in the Galveston area. This hotel worked well for us. The included breakfast was nice - had the usual breakfast items you've come to expect that could be purchased at Sam's Club. Being next to the ferry loading terminal, it was interesting to see that operation. We had... More

We decided to drive down from Dallas a day early for our cruise and saw this place had good reviews from other cruise goers! Would definitely stay here again if I ever spend time in Galveston!
