Galveston Hotels with Free (or Discounted) Cruise Parking

It’s one of the best-kept secrets in Galveston cruising. If you know about it, however, you can save some serious money.

Since Galveston caters to tourism and the cruise industry, many hotels will do everything they can to earn your business. That includes letting you park your car during your trip at a huge discount… or often even for free. To take advantage of this perk, you simply need to stay at the hotel/motel before you leave on your cruise.

While a number of the hotels have “cruise and park” packages (it’s typically the larger chains) that raise the price of the room to include parking, lots of smaller or independent places will just let you park for free. Many will also provide a free shuttle to the port. (If not, the cost of cab fare is still a deal given the discounted parking.)

To give you an idea of where you can find hotels offering this service, we started with all the hotels on Galveston Island. Then, using, we narrowed our list down to those offer 2-star or higher accommodations and positive reviews. Finally, we searched for only those offering cruise parking. The list below should be a good starting point, but keep in mind that it may not list every hotel with the perk.

Also, be sure to confirm the details with the hotels below just in case anything has changed.
