The Mood gardens is just stunning! I was here for a business conference and the staff was very polite and accommodating. ALL of the drivers for the hotel van were very much gentlemen in every scense of the word. I great appreciated each and every one of them.

Moody Gardens was awesome for a three day conference. I had meetings all day long, and the rooms were always clean and ready once I was able to retire for the evening. Parking was great, but I assume during the vacation season parking is a nightmare.

My family and I visited Moody Gardens hoping for a quiet post holiday family getaway. We picked the wrong weekend for that. There was a very large group of cheerleaders and their families staying there. While the cheerleaders seemed to be somewhat well behaved, the parents on the other hand got at a bit rambunctious in the bar on Sunday... More

Moody Gardens is a nice place to stay. Rooms are very clean, service is great, grounds are kept very clean. Pool are is nice with decent whirlpool. Gym is good enough to get a workout in, they could use a few new treadmills as they make a lot of noise. I would say that it is one of the nicer... More

We came to see the ice sculpture and the trail of lights. Walking in this place gives the appearance of a four or five star hotel that is kid friendly. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were nice and the restaurant seemed somewhat upscale with a casual environment. The only drawback to this place is that it... More

This hotel is beautiful. Service was top notch. A great place for both kids and adults. The spa service was relaxing and tranquil. The aquarium, rainforest, 3-D theater, and pools/water park our children loved. There is always something to entertain both adults and children. Adults enjoyed pool with swim up bar. It's a bit pricey however, well worth the cost.

Stayed at Moody Gardens for an event, in which, my Daughter participated. Beautiful hotel, very helpful staff and very clean rooms. Although the hotel and restaurants were a little pricey, we were not disappointed with the product. The service at the lobby bar was, however, somewhat of a disappointment. We had approximately 10-12 people and were the only ones in... More

Was at this hotel for a sales convention for 5 days. For the price that we were able to get in our group I would say that we had a great deal. Although I didn't have time to take advantage of what the hotel all had to offer, I was very happy with my stay. I would probably give it... More
