Hotel Choice in July

I have never been to Galveston, but I am going on a Carnival Cruise of out Galveston with my daughter on July 30th. I'd like to stay in a nice hotel for a day prior to departure, and a day after the cruise. I don't want to spend a fortune, but would like to stay somewhere that is close to the beach (or on the beach), and near points of interest.

At the beach, I would suggest the San Luis Hotel or the Hilton. There are 2 new, cheaper hotels the Comfort Inn and Suites and La Quinta Inn and Suites along the Seawall also.

There are no hotels directly on the beaches here. The beaches have nothing on the California beaches, or wherever you are cruising to, so you may not want to really be by the water here.

Away from the beach, but by the cruise port, is the Wyndham Tremont House Hotel. Lots of shops and dining in this historical area.
