The hotel was beautiful. Very clean and comfortable. From the receptionist (Anthony) to the bellmen (all were fantastic) to the bartenders it was a first class experience. All personnel were friendly and worked hard to make our stay enjoyable.

Really a great place to take a family. We have 3 children 13, 10, and 3. You can park your car at the hotel (free) and not move it until you leave. The little touches, the penguin with prizes, the smores, bounce house, playground, pool, beach, movies for kids, karaoke, and small water park really set this place apart. If... More

We attend a business conference every year at Moody Gardens Hotel, but this year it seemed that everything was just a bit more special. From Franco in the Café in the Park restaurant to Benny at the pool bar and everyone in between, the staff go out of their way to make sure your stay is seamless. As has been... More

I was very satisfied with my stay at this hotel. I did a little research prior to booking it, but either overlooked or it wasn't advertised that you had free access to Palm Beach, which is a water park directly behind it. I had paid for 2 rooms for 2 nights for my family and I, which was well worth... More

Every summer I take two different groups of grandchildren to Moody Gardens. It is the highlight of our year. The children love the hotel as much as anything. It is clean, beautiful and comfortable. Rates are a little high and the reservationists although sweet seem a little incompetent and slow. But overall we love the experience. The staff working in... More

Very nice pool area, nice clean rooms, WIFI had a good connection. Pricing on Food and Drinks, on the high side but the food was not bad.. There... More

We recently stayed a week for a dance convention being held at the facility. The rooms were cleaned well (twice a day if you like) and always plenty of towels. We had issues with our fridge, iron, and sink drain while there and all were replaced / repaired quickly and the front desk even followed up to see if things... More

Just stayed here again over the 4th of July and had a great time. The rooms have just been renovated and updated. The staff was extremely friendly from the bellman to the security people I worked with when I thought I lost my Wallet (fell out of my purse in the car). Even the valet helped me search my car...
