We just returned from a stay at Moody Gardens and had a great time at this property. The grounds are lush and beautiful with loads of activities to do, unfortunately they can be expensive, and with the exception of the white sand beach, none of them are included in the price of the room. We were told that check-in was... More

After reading some reviews about this hotel (after I already booked it), I was kind of freaked out. However, we really enjoyed our stay. We had the Bed & Breakfast Package. The food was okay but the hotel and resturant was VERY nice. Our room had a beautiful views and was very comfy and clean. It reminded me of staying... More

Moody Gardens is a wonderful place to take your family! There's so much to do and see, the zoo, the rainforest, the beaches the pool area; it's just a great place. The rooms were very neat and clean, the cleaning crew were there anytime you needed them as well as the hotel staff. Before you end your summer or plan... More

We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The kids loved the pool and the children's activities. My husband enjoyed the spa and fitness room. We all enjoyed the convenience of the attractions and the tram. We would definitely stay here again.

The hotel management charged me for double occupancy instead of a single because they said I had an guest. I contacted the management and advised that I was the only occupant in my room and this manager called me a liar. This hotel charged my credit card double occupancy. While at the hotel for a business conference several people advised... More

Stayed at the property for a 5-day meeting. Impressive entrance and lobby; however, the rooms need attention (echoed by several others in attendance). In my room, there were several issues to include the shower rod falling down, the shower head was very rusted, the vent was full of lint/dust and there were scuff marks on the walls in several areas....

We booked a getaway weekend here to take our six year old son as an extension of our honeymoon. We wanted to take in Schlitterbahn and palm beach, and since this was "within walking distance" of both, and seemed to be a reputable hotel, we decided to stay for our first, and last time here. First, the hotel may be... More

I stayed at Moody Gardens May 8-11, 2008 for the first annual Galveston Classic Car Show. When I first checked in the reservation agent was rude and short with me. I am a very friendly and outgoing person so this was surprising to me that the reservation agent acted like this. The room they put my family in had trouble... More
