We just stayed at MG for our second year during Bike Around The Bay and found it to be heavenly. The hotel had everything we wanted - comfortable beds, a great bath, coffee maker with Starbucks in the room, fun bar, great resort pool with cocktails poolside, fabulous spa....It couldn't have been any better & the staff was all top...

This was our third visit to the Moody Gardens Resort. We stay every year for an annual bike ride we participate in. This was a wonderful and too short a stay. We arrived about 3 pm on a Saturday. Kristina checked us in promptly and even helped us make arrangements for a shuttle to dinner at a local restaurant we... More

While the hotel room itself was nothing special my wife liked the skin care products that were there. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet both mornings and the short walk to all the attractions. She loved the steakhouse on the top floor!

If you want to spend your entire vacation in one spot, this is the place. The hotel is beautiful and comfortable with a beach, small lazy river tubing, volleyball and great restaurants. Then there is the Butterfly Rainforest Pyramid, Schlitterbahn WaterPark and IMAX all in a few steps from the hotel. Great for romantic getaway, family vacation, and business convention/meetings....

The Gardens RAINFOREST PYRAMID was a wonderful experience for us and the kids. Just beautiful as well as educational & fun. Staying at the hotel makes it easy to get to/from the attractions. Stay more than one night if you can!

I recently stayed at moody gardens as part of a business conference. During one of my less-than-intelligent moments, I completely locked all of my belongings inside one of the conference rooms that would not be able to be accessed until the following morning. Without an ID, I was very concerned about how I was going to be able to get... More

My short stay indicated management problems. First and most egregiously, the hotel manager -- who was both rude and unapologetic -- demanded a credit card at 10pm for a billing issue (on a $30 room service check) that could have easily been resolved in the morning (I subsequently contacted the third-party that was covering the charges). This hotel must have... More

The restaurant on the first floor said they could prepare a gluten free meal for my wife but they failed. Needless to say our three night stay was spoiled the first day at noon when she became ill from eating a salad with grilled chicken on it. We took all the usual precautions with the waitress but she seemed to... More

I'm writing this review after leaving the hotel at 11pm due to the number of problems we experienced. There seemed to be a major issue with plumbing as my the tub backed up during a shower. We initially thought nothing of it. Later on in the evening our sink wouldn't drain at all. Maintenance came by, fixed the issue and... More

Dear Rezker22, Thank you for bringing to our attention the truly regrettable experience you had here last weekend.
