Great location! Met the family for A&M graduation and chose Harbor House to try something new. Our suite was large enough to entertain before dinner. Wonderful restaurants close. Enjoyed the ships and walks along the water. The décor was different from what we normally enjoy and the change was great...fit in with the area.

Proximity to the strand and port terminal was a big plus. Free desert from the Olympia was a plus. the property has a little to no lobby area. there is zero signage... More

I enjoyed our stay at Harbor House. The room was extra large. There was a flat screen TV on the wall and a ceiling fan. The bathroom had a vessel sink and a walk-in shower. The location was great. We were right on the water, several restaurants were close by and only a block from The Strand. The front desk... More

My sons and I enjoyed our time in Galveston...the Harbor House is a relaxing place with comfy beds, updated decor, an ocean view and upbeat & cheerful staff (specifically Dee). Housekeeping was efficient. Everything we needed in a hotel.

We just stayed 3 nights and I wish I could give it a better rating but the breakfast (or lack of) was so unappealing that most people chose to go somewhere to buy their breakfast every day. No meats, eggs, potatoes, nothing most Texans like to eat. Now the rooms were gorgeous and the woman named Miss D was so... More

The rooms here have a unique design and a harbor view. One morning I woke to see a big Carnival Cruise parked outside of the window. The beds and pillows are very comfortable, and the shower was cool. The drawbacks are the noise level from below and that the amenities like a bar, pool and spa services are only available... More

We are pleased the overall you enjoyed your stay at Harbor House Hotel & Marina. As you mentioned, while the hotel doesn't offer an on-site pool guests can use the pool at our sister hotel, Hotel Galvez & Spa. And The Tremont House is just a few blocks away. Thank you for staying with us. More

This hotel was perfect. I loved the room, the location was beautiful, and the staff was wonderful! The price is a little higher than other hotels, but you also get access to the Tremont restaurant and bar and the hotel Galvez pool, spa and restaurant. The rooms were very clean and modern with a great view. I cant wait to... More

My wife and I stayed at the Harbor House for our 38th wedding anniversary, and we were NOT disappointed. This was our first time to stay at this hotel, and we'll certainly return on our next visit to Galveston. Being on the marina, we were able to enjoy the boat tours and nightlife of the Strand. Great restaurants were within... More

Large clean rooms with comfy queen beds and ice cold ac. Mini frig and microwave in room. Bath and shower combo nice. Great view from your window or go down and watch the ships from the dock. Just steps to cruises, super eateries and strand. Dee is extremely friendly and helpful.
