Great little hotel with a grand view of the harbor. It sits right on the pier with walking distance to great restaurants, museums, and the historic district, The Strand. This hotel has a modern, loft feel with spacious rooms and is very clean. Love the walk-in shower! The staff is super friendly and courteous. I would definitely return to the... More

Just a block away from the historic downtown and right by the boat trips, museums etc. Really good welcome in reception where the reciprocal arrangements with the sister hotels explained. This hotel is either new or newly refurbished, and it shows, the room and bathroom was immaculate and the bed exceptionally comfortable. The electronic light switches foxed us! There is... More

The rooms were large and comfortable and very clean. The hotel is walking distance from several nice restaurants also. The only negative was no balcony to enjoy the ocean breezes from in the room or a public deck area that we could find.

We appreciate the feedback on your stay at Harbor House. While our rooms don't offer balconies, several restaurants at Pier 21 offer patio seating that overlooks the harbor. On your next visit, try one of these options. Plus, most Pier 21 restaurants offer a courtesy appetizer for guests. More

My wife and I came down to Galveston for the night, and we chose to stay at Harbor House. It was very nice. The bed was comfortable, and the decor and furniture were hip and modern. The staff was kind and helpful. You do have to pay for parking, but you won't worry about the safety of your vehicle. We'll... More

We were weary travelers staying overnight on trip from New Orleans. The room was really cool and had a modern loft like feel. Problem #1: air condition was not cooling properly. Front desk was going to send someone to fix but we were tired and didn't want to wait around. She was understanding and moved us to a new room.... More

Wife and I used a stay over from a cruise to check out Galveston a bit and stayed at the Harbor House. I tend to like boutique style hotels and this didn't disappoint. The rooms were very clean, and extra large. The rooms have a nice and large TV, very modern looking furnishings and the bed is very comfortable. A... More

My boyfriend and I returned to Harbor House for fun overnight getaway to Galveston. We stayed there last August and the two problems we experienced then (hard bed and bad breakfast) have been fixed. This time the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was much improved. We decided to give the hotel a second chance because the location is... More

We stayed at the Harbor House while visiting Galveston for a fishing trip. What a great location! This updated hotel was conveniently located just down the street from the Galveston Yacht Basin where most fishing trips originate. The hotel is quiet, as you are on the opposite side of the island from the noisy and bustling seawall riff raff and... More

I almost did not want to write a review so people do not know about this little jewel. Hotel is new, modern and quant. The best location with out a doubt in Galveston. Downstairs you walk out onto pier 21 with the nice restaurants 20 steps away like Willie G's, Fishermans warf, and 3 others. The strand is a block... More

well appointed rooms, spacious for a hotel. Complimentary continental breakfast is served each morning on each floor. This hotel is walking distance to the strand, but some shops were closed early weekdays or opened late morning, 11 AM

Thank you for the kind review on your recent stay at Harbor House Hotel & Marina. Some of the locally owned shops operate on their own schedule but you will find that shops closer to Saengerfest Park (23rd & Strand) offer extended hours in the summer. We hope to see you later in the year. More
