3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I wouldn't return because room smelled very musty, a/c didn't work all that well, people friendly at the desk, breakfast was o.k. and well supplied. Hard to get in and out of, our bill and what was charged to our card was higher by 10 dollars which is the parking fee, seems like they charged per day not per stay which was not explained to us. It was just o.k. and I agree with another reviewer we have stayed on the seawall for less money, better view, better all around so that is what we will do next time. It was an adventure.

I'm very sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay at the hotel. We are planning to renovate the hotel at the end of the year. Perhaps you will stay with us again following our renovation. Harbor House is the only hotel that overlooks Galveston's historic port so it is a different experience than a beachfront hotel.
