Check in was very quick and orderly despite the extremely large number of people checking in at 4:00pm. Moody Gardens was hosting an Ironman 5150 Triathlon on September 21, 2014 and there were nearly 2,000 participants plus their support groups from all over the world. This hotel is obviously experienced and highly capable of managing large groups. There were no... More

We enjoyed a weekend stay. The location was perfect for spending time at Moody Gardens and all the attractions it has to offer. We had to drive anywhere else in the island (The Strand, the seawall), but we were fine with this and knew it in advance, so not a big deal. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly.... More

We weren't overly wow-ed with this hotel but it met our expectations just fine. Very clean, attentive service, generally quiet, nice facilities, blackout curtains and good air conditioning for a good nights sleep. Overall a very comfortable place to stay.

We have many conferences and stays at Moody Gardens and it keeps getting better each time. We have tried other hotels on the Island but the Amenities, Service and Convenience can't be beat on Galveston or anywhere else for the price. Ray L.

I stayed three nights attending a work related conference. I'm not a member of the socio-economic class this hotel caters to, but anyway the staff was very gracious. The room was very nice. Complementary soaps, shampoos, etc. are made in China...not what I expected for a "resort." The cafe was overpriced and had few options for a vegetarian. I opted... More

We went down to Galveston and checked into the hotel on a Thursday (9/4) late afternoon and stayed for 2 nights. The front desk staff was very welcoming and informative. We were assigned a king room on the 8th floor with an island view. We actually had a nice view of the island and the water park (schlitterbahn). We weren't... More

I was in charge of planning a golf outing this past weekend to include a plated dinner at Moody Gardens for 40-70 people. I can not speak highly enough about this property and the people with whom I dealt with over the past couple of months leading up to this weekend.

My office stayed here this past weekend for a business trip. It was a pretty good experience! The check in people were friendly and helpful, a lady at the hotel restaurant was particular nice, and the rooms were comfortable and modern feeling. One thing I wasn't too happy with was that there were about 15 kinds in the hot tub... More
