People flock to Galveston year-round for lots of reasons. They enjoy the beaches, attractions and wildlife for weeks at a time, or for just a night or two before setting off to cruise the Caribbean. Fortunately, the island offers a wide variety of accommodations, from swanky resorts and beach houses to budget-conscious lodging and cozy bed-and-breakfasts. Choosing the place that’s right for you may seem like an overwhelming task, but the Galveston Island Convention & Visitors Bureau is happy to help! Call their toll-free visitor line (888-GAL-ISLE) for suggestions.
Hotels For Every Need
Whether you want luxury or just a clean place to crash after a day on the beach, Galveston has dozens of hotel options, most near the center of the island and major attractions.
Charming Bed and Breakfasts
Quaint and cozy, bed and breakfasts shouldn’t be overlooked. They offer all the comforts of home and are particularly suitable for couples seeking romantic getaways or picture-perfect places for weddings.
Family-Friendly Houses and Condos
These range from upscale condos with luxury amenities to beachfront homes that sleep entire families. Though situated all over the island, those on the West End offer a bit more privacy, as well as plenty of room (typically) for large groups.
