We live in Sugar Land, a close 1 hour drive, and decided to have a three day family vacation. We had three rooms to accommodate our children and grandchildren. The hotel and resort area were so pleasant I kept forgetting we were so close to home and really felt like a vacation we might take to some far away resort.... More

The room was nice, but the service was bad, especially at the front desk. I checked in at about 7:45 pm and the crib I requested int he room wasn't there. I even reminded them when I checked in about the crib. I had to call a second time to receive it. Clearly, if i I am still using a... More

Staying at Moody Gardens is the best spot to stay on the island if you have a car and if you are bringing children. Not only do they have nice pool facilities but a major water park (Schlitterbahn) is practically in their parking lot. (It's not part of the hotel but is so convenient). The restaurants are very accommodating for... More

We spent four nights there, two for a conference and an additional two for an extension through the weekend. We had four rooms for extended family. We were accommodated on the same floor close to one another. The rooms have undergone a remodel/update since our last stay there 2-3 years ago. Everything is fresh and clean. Daily maid service was... More

The hotel is beautiful and everything is immaculately clean. The service is great. There is everything there on the facilities you could need. Spa, salon, store, restaurants, you name it. No need to leave unless you just want to site see. Family friendly too. The kids will love it and the grown ups too. The meeting rooms are nice and... More

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

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
