Anyone stay here , I see they have lots of extra attractions for extra money, anything worth the money? Staying there in a few weeks.

No but yes a full service hotel with bonus the other attractions. Worth it . Galveston is a tourist destination with in excess of 8 million visitors last year .

Agree with ssb (single sideband?), especially good around Christmas or if you have children.  Christmastime features a great walk-through light display (cost $ but worth it) and other kid-friendly activities.  For other times of the year, you can visit the aquarium/gardens and walk the grounds located on the West Bay.  Ample dining options at prices you'd expect in a resort hotel.


Our group stayed there for a NYE cruise in '22 and the Christmas decorations were still up.  Have not been through the attractions since the kid was younger (somewhere between 20 and 99 years ago, can't remember) but they were good fun back then.


Worth the money?  Depends if you want the attractions or not.  If it's just a room for the night, go somewhere else.  If you intend to see the aquarium and gardens, it's a good place to pre-cruise.
