We went down to Galveston and checked into the hotel on a Thursday (9/4) late afternoon and stayed for 2 nights. The front desk staff was very welcoming and informative. We were assigned a king room on the 8th floor with an island view. We actually had a nice view of the island and the water park (schlitterbahn). We weren't... More

I can not speak highly enough about this property and the people with whom I dealt with over the past couple of months leading up to this weekend. The staff was knowledgeable and promptlly dealt with me... More

My office stayed here this past weekend for a business trip. It was a pretty good experience! The check in people were friendly and helpful, a lady at the hotel restaurant was particular nice, and the rooms were comfortable and modern feeling. One thing I wasn't too happy with was that there were about 15 kinds in the hot tub... More

Dear Valerie H, I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your business trip. It is rewarding to hear that you loved your stay with us. I am disappointed to hear that the hot tub was crowded with kids, we do enforce an age limit to be in the hot tub but it sounds like something was amiss. I have... More

Have been here a few times for overnight getaways, our room was nice,clean, and bright on the 9th floor. Originally booked a schlitterbahn package but hotel messed up because the watermark was closed during the week. Hotel took it off my bill and gave us passes to the pyramid instead. Pool and hot tub are awesome and the spa is... More

Everyone at the hotel were knowledgeable of their roles and experienced in providing the most of your visit. We had a corporate meeting in August, 2014 and all the staff from the sales to the front desk to the housekeeping took great care in providing service to us and worked with us on our budget too.

Went as a last minute getaway trip with my boyfriend and was amazed by the view of the pyramids when we arrived! It was a little overwhelming to be surrounded by noise from all the children but the swim up bar was great at the pool!! Will probably return during a slower season though!

I've been staying at the Moody Gardens Resort for years. They always have activities for the kids such as s'mores and movie and popcorn nights. My kids love this resort. I highly recommend it! Convenient location near moody gardens pyramids and the water park, tons of things to do, definitely a most do at the island.

It's true, didn't know what to expect!! Came from the airport and saw what looked like a glorified holiday inn, but then walked inside! Very large lobby with nice size bar area. Friendly front desk staff. Gave you a wrist band to use facilities. And what facilities they are! In addition to a pool, with another swim up bar, there... More
