Going to Grand Opera and lodging nearby?

Just my husband and.i Are going to Galveston in May for an event on Saturday night at grand opera

Any suggestions for a place to stay nearby in the $ 125 to 150 range? We want a place for Friday and Saturday night. Open to motels or even b&b.

Is the neighborhood safe to walk around at night?

I've thought of staying in Texas City and driving to the Grand, but Texas City doesn't seem too convenient?

The Tremont House and Harbor House are close. There are probably some B&B's there too, but not familiar with them. Most other hotels are a short drive away along the Seawall.

Weekends are expensive in Galveston, but there are hotels for all price points.

knr has given you the only two hotels within walking distance of the 1894 Grand Opera House (at least the ones I'm familiar with). The area is relatively safe to walk around at night, especially on weekends, but always keep your eyes open and be aware of your surroundings.

I see no reason to stay in Texas City, when Galveston has so many hotels in all price ranges, as knr points out. Driving time from The Strand to Seawall Blvd. can be as little as 6-7 minutes, or as long as about 12-13 minutes. Galveston offers much more to see and do than does Texas City.

Have a great time!
