We have been going to the Moody Gardens Hotel for years. While I know it successfully caters to business travelers, (there's a convention center attached) it does a great job with families as well. Most hotels do one or the other well. First, at check in, there is usually something for the kids especially on holidays. Theme coloring books. Canvas... More

We just came home from staying at Moody Gardens and had a great time! Upon arrival we discovered our TV wasn't working and called the front desk. We were immediately moved to a better room. The free kids activities were wonderful, our daughter had her face painted and it beat what we have paid for in the past!! The attractions... More

My family and I stayed here for Labor Day weekend. Our room was spacious, clean and had a great view. There were great amenities for us adults and our toddler. The hotel is right across the street from Schlitterbaun. The facilities were designed for family and single people.

My wife and I spent several days at Moody Gardens enjoying a BeerMaster's Craft Brew Festival. The hotel staff could't have been more cheerful, helpful or friendly. The weather wasn't favorable, so in-house services were probably taxed, but one would never know. The hotel layout is rather elongated, with the Convention Center on the Northern end of the building; well... More

We were so thankful to find Moody Gardens after a horrible night at the Galveston Beach Hilton "Resort"..... which by the way is far from being a resort. Moody Gardens does everything right. Upon arriving you will be enchanted by the gorgeous landscaping ever where you look, it's truly spectacular. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. The service is... More

Was treating my Niece and her children to a day in Galveston and had a room on the bottom floor overlooking the pool, which was very nice. Room was nice, bathroom was nice. Kinda tricky on getting around the Hotel, but it is very large and very nice to visit. Room service was good and fast, the pool area was... More
