    Guys,

    So we are thinking about doing a little vacation rather than the usual drive to Galveston, stay the day, eat and then drive home.

    So room seems to vary from 150 to 250 for a decent 3 star hotel.

    I know lots of people get beach houses or condos.

    it is just me, my wife, and my three kids, (4Y, 2Y, 7 months).

    You guys have any suggestions of a smaller house or condo to stay at. There seems to be so many on-line but many of them are meant for much larger groups. Also I don't want to stay in a dump/gross place.

    That's what we usually use when we go to galveston and rent a beach house.

    I'd do the name your own price thing via priceline and select the highest star level, you'll get a good deal.

    those places are huge. and most don't do two days during peak season.

    How long do you want to stay OP?

    When are you looking to book?

    We have a little condo (3 bedroom, 2 bath) on Pirates Beach, but it's currently occupied by a long-term renter. His lease is up this summer though.

    I liked this place: http://www.casadelmartx.com/

    Right on seawall and 61st, nice pools, affordable. Had a separate queen sized bed, a couch and two bunk beds in the hallway. Also had a nice little living room kitchen area.

    We stayed there after a NYE gig a few years ago. Great place for a very reasonable price. And I think they remodeled after Ike as well.
