A friend and I stayed for four days and had a blast. The staff was very friendly and assisted us on several occasions. We really enjoyed the attractions all being in walking distance. There was so much to do and see. We also enjoyed some down time at the pool and swim up bar. Oh, and the spa was quite... More

My daughter and I did a staycation here for a short getaway from Houston. Overall, we really enjoyed the stay. I rated the hotel four stars rather than five because of the cons below. The service was inconsistent and not up to what I expect from a resort hotel. However, compared with the rest of Galveston, the price was excellent... More

Our association hosted an annual conference at Moody Gardens in June 2015. Attendees had a wonderful time and the hotel staff was really helpful. Jamie Weir (DOS) is a wonderful ambassador of this property. She is probably the only DOS I know that is checking on ALL her clients daily and not sending her office staff. Thank you, Jamie.

if your plans call for a vacation or trip to Galveston, Texas for business or pleasure, be sure you book your stay at the Moody Gardens Hotel. My family had an amazing time and we were treated like royalty. The entire staff went out of their way to make us happy...and it started with the bellmen in the driveway.

I didn't travel with small kids, or any kids; even so, this is the most comfortable kid-friendly resort. I enjoyed watching them have fun and relax. Nice and laid back, there is something for everyone of any age. I found myself watching "Madagascar" after playing on the lazy river. Lots of fun!

Great weekend stay over a weekend in June with husband and 9 year old son! The negatives from our stay: Fire alarm going off in the middle of the night; I don't think I was given the room view I paid for (but I never said anything); the pool music loudly playing while the pool guy cleaned the pool at...

My kids and I went over Easter break and stayed for 5 nights at the Moody Gardens Hotel. I was completely impressed with everything. I was traveling alone with 3 children and could not have been happier with the services. The pool service was outstanding and we actually are dinner by the pool a couple of nights. The prices were...

Great place to come and relax. The hotel is very clean and is located near everything that you would want to see and do in Galveston Texas. There is something for everyone of all ages here. Water parks, flight museum, botanical gardens, beaches are close by. This hotel is located where there is a lot of parking, even self parking.

Our family spent the entire day at Schlitterbahn and ready to check in for our one night of rest before returning home...we had booked 4 days prior a room with 2 queen beds. We leave the water park and drive across to the hotel, still damp and tired ready to get into our cozy room and settle in. After a... More

This is a fairly common challenge for all hotels to match bed type requests with reservations and, while we miscalculated on your reservation and our house count, please know that with few exceptions, we...
