Thank you for taking the time to post your comments - they are greatly appreciated! I was disappointed that Moody Gardens did not meet your room requirements and that your stay was not as enjoyable as you had anticipated. I can understand your frustration especially after a 12 hour drive. Please be assured that we did look into the matter... More

My husband and I stayed here during the Memorial Day weekend. We live within 50 miles of Galveston, so it's easy enough to drive here. We were able to book a nice King room just a few days before our arrival. This resort is bayfront, not oceanfront, but it is less than a mile to the beach. The room was... More

Went here for a convention. Wished I would have stayed elsewhere and drove over each day. The shower pressure was awful. The room we were in (668) had wet carpet between the bed and the bathroom wall, also you could hear a water drip from somewhere. We did not notice this until bed time, by then the kids were getting... More

We were there on Friday June 4th only because we couldn't get a room at the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort (read that review if you're thinking about that hotel). The hotel is nice enough and check in was fairly quick, even though they're busy. Most of the front desk staff had badges that said they're in training. It is a... More

We traveled with another family so had 4 kids 5 and under with us and had a great time. It's a convenient location and we especially enjoyed the pool and Palm Beach which was included in the hotel price. Everything was clean and we had a nice lunch at the Terrace Restaurant. The staff was very helpful. We are thinking... More

We have stayed here multiple times and always enjoy it. It is definitely a family/kid oriented place. The attractions available are neat--expensive, but fun for the kids. The lobby is beautiful, the rooms are very nice, and the beds are super comfortable--great night's sleep! The hotel pool is surrounded by plams and makes you feel like you are on a... More

This is my second stay at the Moody Gardens in Galveston, courtesy of my employer. I haven't seen much else of it than my room, the lobby, and the ground level restaurant. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. On my second stay, I had a problem with the toilet running for a long time after flushing, before it... More

If I ever go back to Galveston Tx. I can tell you....for sure.....I would NEVER stay here again!

Because of fog the Carnival Conquest cruise was many hours delayed on Easter Sunday. Complicating matters was the group of guests leaving the ship included 1000 non-US citizens. The hotel allowed us to keep our rooms at no charge until 8:30pm. They arranged for transportation to the port and had cruise reps bring us VIP passes which allowed us to... More
