We are flying in day of the cruise, do you think we will have issues from Hobby to Galveston on a Saturday at 1045am?

Same here, but arriving at Bush at 10:15AM. We're using DCL transfers, so hopefully that will help with any issues we might have.

Should be fine. Now that summer is over the Saturday morning flow down to Galveston isn't so bad.

Does anyone know of a Galveston hotel that allows you to leave your car there while you're on the cruise?

Here's a good place to start:

http://www.galveston.com/parkandcruise/

And I don't see them listed at the above page, but I know that Inn at the Waterpark has a cruiser package that includes parking, a shuttle to/from the cruise terminal, and a 20% discount off the standard rate. And kids love the miniature golf there.

Hope this helps!

We just booked at the Towneplace Suites Galveston Island Gulf Front and they offer free shuttle service to and from port as well as free parking for your cruise. The rates are actually really good and they just opened this past Spring. Their pool looks really nice as well.

FYI-La Quinta West offers shuttle service but you will pay $25 per vehicle (up to 4 people) extra on top of your hotel room cost.

This is the hotel that we ultimately decided on as well ~ we booked a King Studio & a 2-bdrm Suite! I spent several days looking at websites, comparing rates, looking at parking & shuttle options and this hotel was the winner. It looks very nice!!!

kjackson83 - When is your cruise? Ours is November 30th. If cruise before us, could you please report back on how your experience was including the shuttle and parking. We would really appreciate it!!!

Any reviews of the Hotel Galvez Shuttle. Hotel looks awesome, just wondering how well their shuttle service works. Thanks.

We have stayed there for a previous cruise and it was pretty decent. If you can get there early on your check in date you will likely be able to get on one of the first shuttles. The only issues we had with their shuttle service was when we debarked as we waited to get off with our group instead of doing the self-assist debarkation. If you can do this I highly recommend it as you will be one of the first off and likely get on the first shuttle back to the hotel.

If you aren't in a big rush getting off the ship, no worries about it then as they have them constantly running.

IAH need dinner suggestions?

Not sure if you can help but we are staying at the Holiday Inn Express at IAh airport due to taking Disney transport on Nov 2 cruise. Does anyone know anyplace close to the hotel to eat dinner? We don't have a car but I'm hoping the hotel shuttle can drop us if its close.
