Quaint boutique hotel on water front located two blocks from the Strand. Easy walking distance to many locations. Great restaurants all around. Large rooms with microwave and fridge. Continental breakfast and wifi included.

When we pulled up I was taken back by the beautiful building located on the water and all the nearby restaurants! Then I was greeted by the wonderful Ms Dee who I had already spoke to several times on the phone to update her of our arrival time. She was a sweet heart and really made us excited about our...

Stayed one night on December 10, 2014, and booked 4 rooms for family. We picked this hotel from previous Trip Advisor reviews, and they were right on target. Very nice hotel constructed in former warehouse. Large rooms, very clean, VERY COMFORTABLE BEDS and right on the harbor close to cruise terminal. You can look out of your window and see... More

Thank you for the glowing review on your recent stay at Harbor House Hotel & Marina. We are so pleased that you had an outstanding stay. And, thank you for mentioning the renovation. We reopened the hotel in February 2014 following a $1.7 million renovation. It offers a scenic location and is the only hotel in Galveston with a harbor... More

If you have to be in Galveston this is the place to stay, I think. Nicely decorated with a modern warehousey feel. We had asked for a room on the top floor with a nice view - we got neither, but the room we were allocated was very nice, clean and spacious so we were fairly pleased. Small annoyances were... More

I found this hotel on this site and have stayed twice in two different room both on the second floor. The hotel is extemely clean and has been consistently so in the lobby and in the breakfast area. The room is big and has every amenity I could want. The room had a big roomy shower and that is fine... More

I have stayed at both the Harbor House and the Tremont multiple times. I refrained from reviewing the Harbor House because I wanted to see if my first experience was the Harbor House standard or was it just a good day. I can say that the Harbor House is an excellent, quality hotel and of the two, it is my... More

Thank you for the detailed review and comparison between Harbor House and The Tremont House. As you mentioned, both properties have their own distinct character and amenities. Harbor House was reopened in February 2014 following a $1.7 million renovation and we are pleased with the result. And, thanks for mentioning our jazz at The Tremont House. It's hugely popular along... More

We stayed at the Harbor House last weekend for Galveston's Dickens on the Strand. The hotel was perfect for that, they have parking - yes for a fee, but one of the few places you can be sure your car is safe and close to the events. The view was nice, and with the fog it was fun. We had... More

We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at Harbor House during Dickens on The Strand. As you mentioned, the hotel is just a block away from The Strand District and offers a great location.

We stayed at the Harbor House over Thanksgiving 2014. Thanksgiving night was great, most likely because there were so few people staying there. Friday there were more people and we actually heard the full conversation of the people staying in the room next door. In the morning their room phone rang at 7:30 and we thought it was our phone....

We were excited to find a hotel that had a marina & was just down the street from where we were launching our boat. After a day of fishing, we arrived to check in & were very disappointed to find that, in spite of a steep hotel price, we also had to pay for on-site parking. Even though one of... More

We are so sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at the hotel. Our staff should have given you the hours for the complimentary breakfast. As they mentioned, breakfast is served beginning at 7 am. While you may have found our parking lot limiting, there are several adjacent lots at Pier 21. We appreciate your feedback which will help improve... More
