Absolutely one of the very best hotels we have stayed at over the past 30 years of travel. ROOMS ARE SPACIOUS AND CLEAN. HOTEL STAFF COULD NOT BE MORE ACCOMODATING. Location to the nearby port for getting to cruise ships is perfect. Quality restaurants nearby make the stay even better.

We booked a room at Harbor House because we were dailing in the Triumph and wanted a hotel close to the port. On arrival day we met front desk clerk Dee and she was a fountain of information with great customer service! The room was spacious and beautiful with great views! We will definitely stay here again!

Wife and I stayed here on weekend before going on a cruise and we were delightfully surprised. The price was very reasonable ($80) rate per night. Very clean and staff very polite and helpful. There was a lot to do very close. Hotel does not have a lot of rooms available, about 30 I think but was nice and quiet.... More

We stayed at the Harbor House for a combination business and personal stay. The room was huge, aesthetically-pleasing and extremely comfortable! Ms. Dee helped us at the desk and she was just lovely! She was incredibly friendly, helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed talking to her. We are so glad we chose Harbor House for our stay! We'll definitely be back!

We booked the Harbor House Hotel because of its proximity to the cruise terminal and the downtown. Dee the front desk agent was wonderful! She had lots of info about the area and the local restaurants. The rooms are large and comfortable. The bathroom was large, but no shelf space for your toiletries. Our only complaints were poor water pressure... More

A very reasonably priced hotel in the middle of all the attractions of downtown Galveston. The staff, especially Dee, were incredibly helpful polite and friendly. Within walking distance of the Strand and several major restaurants. Have stayed here several times for a quick weekend getaway and will return.

Congratulations on your wedding! We are so pleased that Dee was able to surprise you with an upgrade to a suite at Harbor House for your honeymoon. As you mentioned, one of the benefits of Harbor House is that it is located with a view of the harbor and away from the hustle and bustle of The Strand but still... More

You get your bang for your buck! The staff are very welcoming and friendly. Rooms are recently renovated and clean. Within walking distance from restaurants and shopping. Highly recommended! Be sure to meet Dee at the front desk! It has a quaint, tucked away feel, unlike the large hotel chains. Very charming. Would stay here again. Can't say enough good... More
