A little disappointing! Most of the Pyramids were incomplete(way behind schedule). Winter is probably not the best time to visit. Some of the staff were very nice but a few where rude or so inattentive that it was frustrating! We had hot water issues 2 days in a row. Cold showers when it's already chili out did not help. They... More

My company has a conference at Moody Gardens every year. As usually, the service at Moody Gardens is phenomenal. The rooms are spotless. The food is good and at a reasonable price. i always enjoy the charm of Mood Gardens.

We were there in the winter so we didn't get to do everything but even then we could get the feel of the hotel. We can't wait to get back when the weather is warm and everything is open like the little ice cream shop near the pool and the swim up bar in the pool. Also next door was... More

This is my second time to visit the Moody Gardens ConventionCenter. The room was great and the staff was attentive. Unfortunately the TV reception was bad and the water from the faucet smelled badly of sulfur. Bottled water was $3.00 to purchase. I think it should be complimentary when the faucet water is not good. Although it can not be... More

We just stayed one night. Rooms are good size. Convention center is big! Room service late at night did not have much of a choice but was decent. Did not have bottled waters in the room. Valet was packed and had to self park, which was no big deal. Only issue was making reservations, due to a high volume of... More

I've lived an hour away from Galveston for 15+years, but this was my first time doing a stay-cation in Galveston. I loved it! The Moody Gardens Hotel is very nice and clean and the beds/pillows were comfortable. Staff was not engagingly friendly, but they were cordial and helpful. Being a walk away from the Moody Gardens entertainment options was awesome.... More

Dear Lizet T, We are delighted to hear that you selected Moody Gardens Hotel for your first stay-cation in Galveston and that you loved it. It is disconcerting to hear that you found the staff you encountered helpful and cordial but not engagingly friendly; this is definitely not the standard we strive for. We appreciate your feedback and will make... More

The Winter Wonderland experience was awesome for my family. It started with an unbeatable rate/promotion from the Hotel. The stay included tickets for four to the Sponge Bob Iceland exhibit, Festival of Lights, and one other attraction of our choice (the kids chose the Sponge Bob Submarine Adventure). The room was spacious and clean, the decor was great, and the... More

The hotel was nice and all of the staff were friendly. The dinner food was great. The only problem was all of the food on the breakfast buffet was cold. There was no steam coming from any of the food on the steam table. My grits were so cold the butter had to be stirred several times to soften up.

Dear Christi S, Thank you for the post regarding your stay last week. While I was pleased to hear that the Sysco dinner went well, I was disappointed to read that our breakfast buffet was not working properly which kept the food from being as hot as it should have been. I agree with you that butter on grits should... More
