This was our first stay at this hotel and was very pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the staff; the modern, comfortable rooms, and the over all price for the room and the few meals we had at the hotel. I certainly recommend it and will be the one hotel in Galveston we will stay in the future.

Although the exterior looks like it needs some updating, my room was very nice. Beautiful pool area. Nice bar in the lobby. Helpful check in. Easy parking in the basement garage. Good place for business meetings.

We spent two nights here in June of 2014. There are 6 in our family, 2 adults, 4 children aged 11 and under. We booked a single room with 2 queen beds. 2 kids shared a bed and 2 slept on the floor. There was plenty of room to make pallets on the floor, which is often not the case... More

Spent 3 days at Moody Gardens with neighbors and the four grandkids. We checked in early, and spent the afternoon at the beautiful pool with the kids. The pool bar made great pina coladas. We had dinner that night at the casual restaurant, and it was very nice. The kids' dinner was free, as was their buffet breakfast the next... More

We visit 1 - 2 times each summer and 1 time each winter and are always thrilled with the place. The kids range in age from 3 - 5 and there is plenty to do and see with fun for them and the adults. The hotel was completely redone in the winter after the first of the year and it... More

My family and I stayed here on a quick weekend getaway and it was fantastic! Check in was a breeze, the room was nice, clean and comfortable. The restaurants on site were great and the pool was lots of fun, including a swim up bar. Would definitely stay there again!

Although we've been to Galveston numerous times, this was our first stay at Moody Gardens. We took four grandkids and this has got to be one of the best, kid-friendly, resorts for kids. We were there for 4 days but ran out of time to do everyhing. Palm Beach was exceptional! It is the perfect combination of a sandy beach... More

We always stay at the San Luis or rent a beach house when vacationing in Galveston. However, my mom and I wanted to do a two day stay with my toddler before school begins, and Moody Gardens had great room rates and a $50 resort credit, so we booked. This hotel is definitely a better deal than the San Luis.... More

My husband and I took our five year old grandson for a little vacation for him and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Moody Gardens hotel and surrounding property. The housekeeping staff was friendly and did a very nice job each morning early. We had a good view of the pyramids and pool area. All in all a very good... More
