Attended the gala for new year. Service and food brilliant. Slightly overpriced in my honest opinion. The food was plentiful. The bar was open and full stocked. Wait staff attentive. Age group was mature. Observed that there wasn't a verification of who were paying guests. Anyone could put on a dinner jacket and walk in. I would recommend this new... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years, and for families, it just keeps getting better. The hotel was renovated last year and the decor in the rooms is fabulous!

Our leadership team needed to get away for a couple of days to plan for an upcoming event. We chose Moody Gardens as our location. Even though the weather did not cooperate for our outside team events, the hotel was very accomodating in helping us make last minute changes. We had a wonderful view of Offats Bayou from our meeting... More

I took 3 of my grandchildren, ages 8, 8 and 11 for an overnight visit at this hotel. For $279, we got a huge room with 2 queens; dinner for the 4 of us; a Christmas magic show, that also included singers and dancers; and a tour of the Festival of Lights. The room was perfect and the hotel was... More

Huge hotel. Very nice looking rooms. Looks like just been renovated. Conveniently located next to Moody's garden pyramids with all the great activities for family. Nice casual restaurant, not very expensive so you can stay at the hotel and eat. Good breakfast buffet too. Will definitely come again!

I booked a package deal with Moody Gardens Hotel in Galveston, TX. My family and I received excellent service and the hotel treated the kids great with Christmas stockings, smores, and hot chocolate! They had a couple of great exhibits on display. The Ice Land display with the Spongebob theme where everything was made of ice and the Festival of... More

Highly suggested for families travelling to Moody gardens or convention participants, due to the convinience. Decent hotel with right amenities and food options. The checkin was a breeze(not as bad as many reviewers have commented). I would suggest valet and it is 20 bucks a night, you can pull out and give back as many times. If you want to... More
