She made sure above and beyond that my stay was comfortable at all times.If you really want to see the nostalgia of Galveston within walking distance, by all means, this... More

Ok, so this place is a little expensive plus you have to pay to park but the rooms are huge and very close to the Strand. HOWEVER, the guy that checked us in was straight rude and miserable!!! The job isn't crazy difficult and your attitude makes it or breaks it but he was very rude like I was bothering... More

We stay here because of the location! It is a nice, but very simple hotel.... Small, nicely appointed, quiet and only one elevator! It is located in The Strand area, close to restaurants and shopping. Friendly staff.... It is a pricey hotel, plus $10 parking(which is not bad for city hotels), but check travel sites for better rates! Continental Breakfast... More

The only reason we rated this property Average and not Poor was because of it's location overlooking the marina and close proximity to the Strand. Our room (a King) was spacious and comfortable except for; the near constant noise we heard from the adjoining rooms and the hallway. We heard every conversation and every door open and close. We did... More

Amazing experience! Dee at the front was so sweet and experienced in what she does that we do not even want to go to another hotel on our next visit! She even made sure that our reservation for dinner was in a romantic spot. The hotel was clean, and in a really cool location. It was a great stay and... More

The Harbor House is in a great location if you are interested in the Harbor and The Strand area. A lot of the other guests were there for the cruise ships going out. It is located just down the road from the cruise ship docks. Beds were comfortable, room was always very clean. The lighting system inside of the room,... More

We needed a hotel near the cruise terminal for one night, and this was the perfect place. Great location, very nice & updated rooms, large bathroom and breakfast. All for a very, very reasonable rate. We were very happy and would stay there again.
