We had a nice time but it was on the expensive side even with the Discount for the Gritty Goddesses. Check in was quick and I paid the $20 for Valet because I was a female alone with my kids and it was storming. Room Phone didn't work due to power outages/Storm. Food/ Wine/room service was on the expensive side... More

Had previously rented a property on VRBO that was cancelled on us at the last minute because the property was sold. This was one of the very few locations with a couple of rooms available. The beds very comfortable. the pillows were even decent. I don't always find pillows that I am comfortable with in hotels. The amenities in the... More

There is nothing special about this hotel- room service was 1.5 late, unexpected power outage on a clear night that lasted an hour- no late checkouts to accommodate the outage. A phone in the room that doesn't work. The only thing this place has going for it, it's that its next to Moody Gardens and a water park other than... More

From check in to check out, our experience at the moody gardens resort was phenomenal. The hotel desk staff was so warm and welcoming. Our room was AMAZING. So spacious and we had a wonderful view of the pyramids and pool. The pool was awesome, it was heated just enough that it was perfect on a cloudy day. The swim... More

I preface this review by saying that we usually rent a villa, a B&B, or similar, with a staff for our family vacations of approximately twenty-five. We have pretty high expectations. We chose Moody Gardens because we now need ADA accessibility, and we wanted to be close to home. We were not disappointed. Rooms: my hubby and I were very... More

We booked one night here and drove from Dallas for our 7 day cruise the next morning. Our room was nice and the bed comfortable. We were able to leave our car parked in a covered lot and took a shuttle bus to the port the morning of our cruise. When we returned we called to let them know and... More

Maybe the inclimate weather hurt but there were some things they could have done better. First of all we had reserved two rooms and the other room we were paying for they gave to our employee, and of course it was the room with the water view...when I asked about upgrading our room they said no upgrades available. Even though... More

We chose this hotel for an overnight stay prior to our cruise because they offer free parking for the duration of your cruise with no minimum stay (even on weekends). They also have a roundtrip shuttle to the cruise terminal for $20 per room. The hotel was nice, clean, and had a beautiful pool where they played music until closing,... More

This hotel was beautiful, but the best thing there for my family was the pool. It was quite large and heated to a nice temperature. It was a little piece of paradise with a small island and a bridge, attached hot tub.... The location was great with lots of things on the property to keep the family entertained. Unfortunately for... More

My two young sons and I visited Galveston the week of March 30. While it was our spring break, apparently Texas' spring break was the week before. The pool was fabulous and the hotel was immaculately clean, but many of the attractions at the hotel had very limited hours and seemed to change by the hour! In addition, many of... More

Dear Gunmetalconsulting, Thank you for your recent post on TripAdvisor and I want to sincerely apologize for the timing of your visit to Moody Gardens and Galveston. We take your feedback to heart as we probably could have done a better job in communicating to you the limited hours of our attractions prior to your booking your stay. The spring... More
