Pros: excellent location right on the pier within walking distance to several eateries and shopping. Far enough away from the seawall to be quiet, but still just a short drive from all that the seawall offers. Rooms are LARGE and very comfortable. Nicely appointed bathroom. Bed was very comfortable - I usually have a hard time sleeping when I travel,... More

I have not been to Galveston in many years and needed a Spring Break during the gorgeous 70ish weather that week. I purposely chose the Harbor House because I wanted to be within walking distance to all the shopping and dining. It did not disappoint. Had wonderful stay and staff was very nice. I especially want to thank whoever read... More

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your spring getaway at Harbor House Hotel and Marina at Pier 21. The hotel was renovated last year and we've received a very positive response on the upgrades.

We stayed the night before our cruise. The location is great. We could see the ship out the window. The rooms are very nice and modern and everything was super clean. The hotel staff was very kind and helpful. The parking lot was gated and for guests only at the fee of $10 plus tax. We will stay here again.

Good accessible upscale hotel with only a few things to make it more accessible. Wheelchair users would appreciate bed height lower and a lamp on the night stand that has plugs for charging cell phones (there was one one the desk and a power strip on the back leg). Comfortable, quiet, great view, close to the Strand (downtown trip) and... More

Great location. Easy to access all attractions. Rooms were clean and spacious. Helpful staff. We had a harbor view, quite area. Breakfast was an added perk. Kept it clean and full. It's a great location for the port, just walk on down!

This was our second time staying at Harbor House and they have redone the rooms, which are wonderful. The bed was very comfy and the view is perfect for excited kids looking for your cruise ship to come in. This time we stayed on the second floor above a restaurant which was a bit noisy, but not unbearable. Great rate,... More

Great hotel with very urban decor. Convenient location near a marina with restaurants all around and walking distance to The Strand shopping. Great value, clean spacious rooms. Hard to beat this quality, convenience, location and price.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Harbor House. It is a great location just a block off the Strand. It is about a 1 mile walk to the beach or a very short drive. Room was very large and comfortable. Room rate was a bit pricey. With tax for a couple of nights bill came to about $750.
