Moody gardens is a nice place to stay. We had bought the Explore Moody Gardens package from their website which gave us a king sized bed, free valet, and a two day pass to the attractions. Room was clean and comfortable. I did like the retractable clothesline in the bathroom and the little sewing kit they offered with the soaps... More

We loved staying at the Moody Gardens Hotel. The room was incredibly spacious, very updated, extremely clean & had a wonderful view of the nearby Moody Gardens attractions. It was well lit and the bed was very comfortable. We had plenty of space to work and our son had ample space to play. We were within walking distance of aforementioned... More

We were able to stay at this hotel on March 23, 2014 (the day after the oil spill on the Texas City dike) in preparations of boarding the Carnival Triumph on March 24, 2014. We noticed that there was many people sitting in the lobby area when we checked in. Later that afternoon, we asked what was going on and... More

My husband and I stayed from March 20th-22nd. We were on a mini vacation. We had a wonderful time and experience. We couldn't ask for better service, assistance, friendliness, and hospitality. We even got great assistance and hospitality by Mark Wilmoth on where things were located at the resort. Couldn't ask for a better time and mini vacation.

Moody goes over the top taking care of cruisers. It is a great way to start or end you vacation. As travel agents we use and recommend Moody Gardens to all our cruisers as a pre or post cruise stay. We have never had guest come back and complain to us about any thing at Moody.

Combination of business and family trip. So excited to take the grandchildren again. Swim up bar, ice cream and nearly everything closed. The first night the sheets were not completely on the bed. It was downhill from there. The next day, I requested fresh towels and make up the bed that had been unfinished. Everytime, I went to the room,... More
