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. The staff was knowledgeable and promptlly dealt with me... More

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

They threw away everything we had in the refrigerator they threw away my personal the razor an shampoo they doubled charged me for my room a month later they have still not released the $40 hold charge and have called serval times just to get the extra charges refunded it's not worth the hassle to stay at the moody gardens

Have been here a few times for overnight getaways, our room was nice,clean, and bright on the 9th floor. Originally booked a schlitterbahn package but hotel messed up because the watermark was closed during the week. Hotel took it off my bill and gave us passes to the pyramid instead. Pool and hot tub are awesome and the spa is... More

Went as a last minute getaway trip with my boyfriend and was amazed by the view of the pyramids when we arrived! It was a little overwhelming to be surrounded by noise from all the children but the swim up bar was great at the pool!! Will probably return during a slower season though!
