Comfortable beds, rooms are spacious, housekeeping keeps it clean. We visited the sister properties - The Galvez for the pool & spa, and The Tremont for a drink at the rooftop bar. After seeing all 3, we wished we had chosen The Tremont, as it has the most vibrant vibe, and has a lovely concierge service at the front. (Harbor... More

Great service. Room was nice and spacious. Loved the walk-in shower. Older building on outside, but everything has been updated very nicely on the inside. Simple Breakfast. Easy access. Will definitely stay here again.

The hotel was nice and very clean. The maids kept it really clean. The view from outside was great also. The only thing I didn't like was breakfast. For the price you're paying your should get more than cereal, fruit, oatmeal, and pastries. But other than that everything was great.

We took a last minute family vacay & stayed two nights at the Harbor House. Great Hotel, Quiet, & Great location. Ms. Dee at the front desk was welcoming, helpful & very funny. Only complaint was the loud AC unit in the room, but other than that we had a great weekend stay. Bonus: saw a school of dolphins from... More

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your last minute family vacation at Harbor House. As you mentioned, most rooms offer a view of the harbor and we love that you saw the dolphins. There are now five harbor excursions at Pier 21 so there's plenty to keep you busy. We hope to see you again before school starts. More

My husband and I stayed recently for 2 days. The Harbor House is a gem. Centraly located within walking distance of The Strand. Great views of a working harbor. Dee was such a pleasant lady to interact with! Not many folks these days with a great personality and customer service as great as hers. Highly recommend the Harbor House!

I vacationed in Galveston with family for a few nights and we booked a room at Harbour House. I did my research before hand, and wanted to be close to the Seawall, but not on top of it. This location was perfect. It is located by many restaurants and has good access to and from the stops along the way.... More

Great place to stay! The room was very comfortable and lots of space! We had a corner room and the view was outstanding. We saw dolphins from our window and cruise ships came in. We will stay there again.
