Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Galveston Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Galveston, TX discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Galveston hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Part of the Houston metropolitan area, Galveston is a great place to visit. The city itself is on Pelican Island and Galveston Island, and it once served as the main Texas Navy port during the Texas Revolution. The city's first settlements, though, were constructed in 1816 by a French pirate. Galveston would become a major commercial hub during the 19th century before being devastated by the Great Galveston Hurricane in 1900. It would take years to recover, but the city soon emerged as a family-oriented tourist destination.

Today the city boasts more than 60 structures on the National Register of Historic Places, which are spread out among Galveston's six historic districts. With so much historical significance, Galveston thrives on modern tourism. You can find museums and nature-based attractions throughout the city, and the Port of Galveston serves as a passenger cruise ship terminal for Carnival Cruise Line. Whether you're visiting Galveston to gear up for a Caribbean cruise or you're hoping to explore the city itself, it's important to find the right hotel that allows you to enjoy everything Galveston has to offer.

When to Visit Galveston, Texas

With its balmy climate, Galveston knows how to draw beach-going crowds. Summer temperatures are between temperate and subtropical, so expect summer and spring break to be the most popular times to visit. This is also when hotel rates are at their highest. Weekends are especially crowded during the summer when Houston residents and other nearby Texans head down for a weekend getaway. If you do plan to brave the summertime crowds, you'll be rewarded with perfect beach weather and a variety of outdoor events, including a sandcastle competition, the Independence Day parade and fireworks show, a craft beer festival, and much more.

To enjoy warm weather without the excessive heat, visit in early spring or late fall. Spring brings festival such as the popular Galveston Birding and Nature Photo Festival, which takes place in mid-April before peak season hotel prices kick in. Spring is also the prime time to go horseback riding on the beach, flyboarding over the bay, or sailing beyond the Galveston causeway. Other than winter and spring break, spring brings the most affordable room prices.

Winter temperatures are pleasant, but they're not warm enough for swimming. You could, however, check out Schlitterbahn's heated indoor water park, the Galveston Railroad Museum, and the annual Galveston Holiday Lighting Celebration at Hotel Galvez and Spa. If you're looking to take advantage of Galveston's low winter rates, though, avoid Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's.

Insider Tips for Visiting Galveston, Texas

Make the most of your trip to Galveston by experiencing the city like a local. Galveston features a lot of bustling life in a small amount of space, so it's smart to know the highlights. Most visitors tend to crowd the Strand, which is the cruise port area, and Seawall Boulevard, which offers an array of bars, restaurants, and hotels. If you're a history buff, be sure to tour the historic Strand District.

As for food, you can't beat a meal at Olympia the Grill at Pier 21. This is a prime restaurant not only for its delicious eats, but also the chance to spot pelicans and dolphins in Galveston Bay. Other great eateries include Benno's on the Beach, The Spot, and DiBella's. For amazing nighttime views, head to The Rooftop Bar on top of The Tremont House.

Galveston is riddled with big box stores and kitschy swim shops, so you might feel underwhelmed by your lack of choices if you're here for a shopping excursion. Thankfully, Galveston does harbor some unique boutiques and off-the-tourist-path shops that are must-sees. Head to The Witchery downtown for special jewelry and gifts, The Style Co. on 14th for women's clothing and accessories, or the ultra-cool Tangerine Boutique downtown to discover unique designer brands.

Also, while you'll probably visit the Historic Pleasure Pier more than once during your stay, your best bet is to enjoy it from the Seawall rather than pay the fee to walk the boardwalk.

When planning your trip to Galveston, be sure to explore your options. Decide on your must-see attractions in advance, and take advantage of hotel specials and discounts. Whether you're looking for a budget-friendly option or a sophisticated luxury experience, Galveston aims to please.
