Galveston Motels? Start Packing. We have them here!

Galveston motels just make sense. We love them!

If you’re light on cash, make those dollars stretch. Enjoy more with less! These motels get you a Gulf Coast Getaway. For the day, weekend or longer.

From these motels we walked miles of beaches. Other times we bicycled for hours. Sometimes we'd stay for the day. Other times a week. And other times the month.

Most are perfect for families, couples or singles. With a little creativity you can cook in them too. You’d be surprised what you can do with a microwave. Then again, maybe not.

From any of the motels, attractions are minutes away: City of Galveston, Cruise Ships, Train, Plane, Ship, Cultural, and Historical Museums. Miniature golf, golf, marinas, amusement parks, Colonel Paddlewheel Boat Rides, city tours, fishing charters, movies, Moody Gardens.

Some Galveston Motels are a casual walk to enticing restaurants.

Of course the beaches are nearby! Most are a short walk from any of the Galveston Motels. There are miles and miles of them. Sun soaked beaches with soothing Gulf breezes. Can’t you just feel it? In those moments all is right with the world.

That is pay for living!

Except for three Galveston Motels, most are in sight of the beach. Or an easy walk to the beach. If some were any closer you’d need a life guard!

Some are just an inexpensive room with a beautiful view!

Special events and holidays might be an exception - might. It can depend when you get arrive. If you’re there before an event you can often lock into the deal. Or pretty close to it.

Hum, let me think now……I’m not sure where this is all leading….

Don’t plan too long. Just pack and go! Everyone will be excited by such capriciousness!

Don’t have a navigator or smart phone? We’ll get you to any of the Galveston Motels from the most popular route, I 40 South bound. 

 

It’s really easy. Ready?
