We were so thankful to find Moody Gardens after a horrible night at the Galveston Beach Hilton "Resort"..... which by the way is far from being a resort. Moody Gardens does everything right. Upon arriving you will be enchanted by the gorgeous landscaping ever where you look, it's truly spectacular. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. The service is... More

Was treating my Niece and her children to a day in Galveston and had a room on the bottom floor overlooking the pool, which was very nice. Room was nice, bathroom was nice. Kinda tricky on getting around the Hotel, but it is very large and very nice to visit. Room service was good and fast, the pool area was... More

After an abysmal 2 nights stay at a condo on the east side of the island, this was a little slice of heaven! We stayed in 411, what a great room! The room was clean, large and very quiet, and I could have parked my car on the balcony, it was so big. It overlooked the pool and we had... More

We went to Galveston for our granddaughter's University of Texas Medical Branch graduation, which was going to be in the Moody Gardens' Convention Center located adjacent to the hotel. Since the graduation was on Friday, we decided to go down Thursday and come back Saturday to enjoy some G-town scenery and food. When we arrived at the hotel, several cars... More

Here's a quick overview: -Great for families and for those planning on visiting the Moody Gardens Pyraminds and Schlitterbahn -Not so great for crazy women who want to drink a lot and have a good time -Gym and Yogal class were wonderful! -Sauna looked good, but wasn't preheated (takes 30 mins) so we didnt experience this -Restaurant cost too much...

I've been going to Galveston for vacation for about 25 years. We've stayed everywhere from the Galvestonian to the Hilton, and even smaller places like La Quinta. Staying at Moody Gardens has been our favorite by far. The pool is the best, and like other high-end hotels in the area, has a swim up bar attached to it. The rooms... More

There is so much to do at this hotel with kids that you really never have to leave the property! Our party consisted of ages: 5, 8, 35, & 68. The kids activities planned throughout the day are great. During our stay my kids: made smores, bounced in the jumpy house, watched a movie by the pool, water balloons, door... More

We took a last minute weekend getaway before school. We visit Moody often, but have never been able to afford a room. This weekend, they happened to be the cheapest rates on the Island, so we were able to check it out(they had a summer special). Upon check-in, we were greeted wonderfully. Our check-in clerk told us our room had... More

This was our first time to stay in this hotel and visit Moody Gardens. The hotel is pricey, but very nice. There was a small problem with our reservation, but management was able to clear up the matter and for our trouble, we received a free drink voucher and an upgrade on our room! The room was awesome...it had a... More
