Bid goodbye to your fellow passengers, find your overhead luggage and follow the crowds as they make their way into Scholes International Airport (GLS) in Oleander City. Welcome to Galveston!
Forget about catching a cab or public transit to your hotel after you exit the terminal. Spend the night at the Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention Center, the sole establishment just a short stroll away, and you’ll soon be curled up in bed.
Have you considered staying in one of the neighborhoods near the airport? You'll have more things to see and do, as well as more places to eat, while still being within easy reach of the terminal. Inquire into Seawall Boulevard and its 31 places to stay. Some fine establishments here are the San Luis Resort, Spa & Conference Center and the Hilton Galveston Island Resort.
Whether you've heard of Bishop's Palace before or not, it's well worth a visit. It's situated just 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the airport, so make sure you take the time to see it.
So what are you waiting for? Get your Scholes International Airport hotel taken care of so that you can concentrate on getting the most out of your adventure.
The Inn at The Waterpark is an easy walk from the luggage carousel. A favorite among those on a budget, this well-located option offers conference facilities, cruise terminal shuttle services and a pool.
Don't forget to take a look at the prices at the Best Western Galveston West Beach Hotel and the Comfort Suites Galveston. Both options are a quick drive from the terminals. The former has a gift shop, complimentary newspapers in the lobby and a spa tub, while the latter has conference facilities, air-conditioned public areas and complimentary newspapers in the lobby.
