First off, the main reason we chose this hotel is because they include free parking for your vehicle when you stay there before leaving on a cruise! The cost to park at the dock of Galveston runs anywhere from $50-$70, so having that included with the cost of the room is a great deal. No one messed with our car while we were gone for a week, it was a great environment.

There is a shuttle that runs from the hotel to the dock, a 5-10 minute drive for $10 per person + tips for baggage ($10 includes a free return trip). They had two shuttles running, and we were back to the hotel as soon as we were off the ship. Props to DCP Cruise Parking!

The front desk people were extremely kind, and the hotel had free Wi-Fi! The AC worked well, and the beds were comfortable Serta beds. The iron and board were handy pre-cruise, and the fridge was nice to have as well. Free continental breakfast was nice.

One Drawback! Bring earplugs! There is a nearby train that might bother you during the night, so be prepared and it is not a big deal. Very minor smoke smell in a non-smoking room.

Travel smart and safe! Best of luck to everyone!

Room Tip: Most of the rooms have a great view! Good environment, so any room works!

Great hotel. Very convenient to the rally sites. Great bed, I hated to come home. Will stay here next year.
