4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Aside from the location in the midst of a renovated dock area, this hotel is very nicely appointed. I was very surprised at the size of the room and the quality of the fixtures throughout. Aside from a few massive suites I've been fortunate enough to enjoy, this was one of the bigger rooms I've stayed in. All aspects of... More

As has been written, location is great. Both for dinning, museums or just a stroll. The place is recently renovated and they tried to give it at 'pier house' look, which makes it less bland. No foyer, but the reception people were very kind. There is an area on second floor where breakfast is served which can be used if... More

We stayed at the Harbor House for one night while checking out Galveston. The location is good for walking around the main part of town, and for driving to the ferry in the morning. The rooms are decorated in a minimalistic way, something that's quite appealing to European sensibilities. The breakfast is the basic "continental" breakfast you get at motels,... More

There is no lobby or room to walk around luggage or feel comfortable checking in. The staff ignored us completely because she was on the phone. I will not stay here again... The room had a great view.

Thank you for sharing your feedback on your room and the service. It is a small property (42 rooms) so our front desk staff manages several roles while working the desk. We appreciate your feedback and hope that you might reconsider and give us another try. More

If you're looking for a warm welcoming, relaxing retreat, this is not it. The rooms are poorly lighted, and have a DIY feal. The price is not reflected in the room, however, it may be for the area. Spend a little more time driving, and stay on the mainland. It would be well worth it.
