This was not our first visit to Moody Gardens, but our first to the Festival of Lights. We arrived a little early and got a phone call when our room was ready. The hotel staff and room were great as always. The lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The FOL was spread out. Even though it was not crowded, I... More

We stayed here last weekend and the whole experience was great. Got a package deal for the Pyramids and the utterly fantastic Ice Land exhibit. The staff at the hotel is great, very helpful, and the room was large and clean with nice amenities. We went to Shearns for our anniversary dinner which was absolutely wonderful. The food was great... More

This is a nice hotel, check in is quick and easy, bar is nice. We stayed here during the LS rally...since it has a bar in the lobby this is a good spot to hang out at the end of the day and know you don't have to drive anywhere.

Nice stay, room was nice and quiet. Ask for a north facing room for a pyramaid view. Food at Shearns Steak House was excellent. Front desk staff friendly, though not able to assist on future reservations, was referred to telephone reservations for answers on rates. Winter time renovations appear to be the pools area and Presidential suites.

Very nice rooms. Very clean and spacious. However, no microwave in the room, remote control for the TV didn't work well and shower water pressure was low. It's a big place and it needs hotel maps in the lobby and in the rooms so it'll be easier to find the most convenient parking area and access elevator to your wing.... More

Dear Nice, Thank you for the kind posting and gracious feedback.

We decided to to head to Galveston spur of the moment on Saturday. Moody Gardens had the best rates for a room to accommodate our small group. We reserved on-line but never received a confirmation email. When we arrived in Galveston we went to the hotel first to make sure we actually had a reservation. It was prior to scheduled... More

I have been to Galveston many times but this was my first stay at the Moody Garden Hotel and spa. The hotel has done an outstanding job sort of separating itself from the island yet close enough to visit the seawall. The room was gorgeous very modern bathroom and up to date. It was very quiet and relaxing as well... More

Galveston during the off season is great no crowds, no lines. I recently stayed there for a three day convention and was too busy to enjoy the gardens next door and all the attractions the rest of the town has to offer but did enjoy the hotel. It is perfectly situated, we had a room with a view of both... More

Never been to Galveston before but was here for a conference. Galveston itself seems separate from the other Texas activity and is unique to itself. Very true to it's island community. Very impressed with the staff first and foremost. Very courteous and helpful. Wished I had my family here as they have both a water park and amusement park within... More
