townplace suites by marriot

Recommended Posts

We are staying at townplace suites by marriot in galveston- wondering what is close by so we can get soda for the cruise and are there any restaurants nearby?

If you don't have a car, it's pretty far out Seawall Blvd. Perhaps the local Galveston people will know but there's not much showing when you zoom in on the map.

 Isn't Walmart at 69th? Marriott Towneplace is down at the end of the seawall, isn't it? Close enough in a car, but I'm not sure I'd want to walk it there and back.

I too have booked this Marriott for a stay in December.  I couldn't believe it was only $67 for a Friday night stay(AAA rate) and we will be leaving on the Vista on Saturday Morning.  BUT we will not have car and will have to walk or Uber for dinner that night, thinking Jimmy's on the Pier as a simple solution.  This begs the question for my situation, should I just stay at a hotel near Houston Hobby and shuttle down on Saturday morning or take an Uber/Lyft on Friday afternoon down to Galveston?  Thoughts or experiences anyone?

Check the Galveston Island Trolley schedule and route .

ssb, do you think it is an easy walk from the Marriott to Jimmy's on the Pier?  The highway looks a little scary to cross.

nicoleslp, if you are staying at the Marriott before December, can you post your experience when you get back?
