“great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2012

We stayed here on Saturday night before getting on the cruise ship the next day. They have a shuttle to transport you to and from the terminal for free and you can park your car in their lot for free which is very nice. They have a putt putt golf course that is included in cost of room. Our room was very large and clean, had a fridge and microwave. Would be a great place for families, esp during summer. Will most likely stay here again the next time we are in town.

I was made aware of this hotel through a cruise buddy. You can stay here the night before and park your car for free while you are away on your cruise! This cost less than the parking at the port. They drive a shuttle van back and forth to the cruise terminal until everyone is settled.the room we were in was huge and had everything we needed. The staff was outstanding and the manager (Jon) was more than friendly. We enjoyed our stay and will book again for our next cruise! A special thanks to Jon for being there when we neede you the most!

We stayed here on a Saturday night before a cruise on Sunday. It was a good price on Expedia. The Inn is non smoking which is what we wanted. We had 2 double beds; my husband got on the computer which was free internet. It was clean; had a small refrigerator and a small microwave. We used the microwave to make hot tea. The Hotel had a miniature golf course which some people enjoyed. I would stay here again anytime. The quickie breakfast was not my favorite, but they did have cereal and bagels.

Room Tip: We were on the bottom floor and our room was quiet. Our friends had someone above them that returne...

We were passing through Galveston for a cruise. Due to a fog delay upon our return from the cruise we needed to find a hotel for the night. We ended up at the Inn at the Waterpark. They room was big enough for our family to fit comfortably (we stayed in the back building). The room had a fridge and microwave. There was free mini golf, and it was close to the waterpark and the Moody Gardens exhibits. The staff was very friendly and the kids loved it. It was a perfect ending to our vacation.

Before our cruise we stayed at another hotel along the seawall. Inn at the Waterpark was about $30 less per night then the other hotel. We were much happier at the Inn at the Waterpark. Also, the Inn at the Waterpark has free cruise parking and a free shuttle service. coulda, shoulda, woulda.....maybe next time.

Room Tip: I did not see the rooms in the main building, but the back building looks newer from the outside. W...

was there first weekend of dec. i could not give half point, "very good" (4) is too much, but it is more than "average" (3) for me. the good things: 1) location. we went before cruise trip. a very good location, easy to find. close to attraction such as beach and water park, etc. but probably not a good location if you don't have car. 2) quite cheap. 3) room spacious. 4) has fridge and microwave
Not so good: a bit run down,esp the bathroom. old TV, showed some strange behavior every a few minutes.

I brought my two sons to the Inn for our Christmas Vacation. The staff here has been WONDERFUL and went out of their way to make our holiday special. My boys loved just hanging out at the hotel. We were in GREAT walking distance to Schlitterbaun and the awesome Winter Heated Indoor waterpark and enjoyed feeling like we were a part of everything happening at Moody Gardens. We loved the fact that we could break up our days at Moody Gardens with trips to Schlitterbaun and playing mini golf at the hotel.

I DEFINITELY recommend this hotel for anyone traveling with a family and looking to enjoy Schlitterbaun and Moody Gardens.

Room Tip: The Tower Building was great for us. It rained really hard one day and we were able to stay dry bec...

We arrived early for a cruise to Cozumel the next day. Nice hotel - all the basics, a little aged, but comfortable beds, friendly staff, free miniature golf, and free transportation to the port (about 10 minutes away). Free parking while you are on the cruise.

Our ship was very late docking the next day, due to fog closing the ship channel. No problem. We were allowed to delay our checkout until time to go (now early evening), with no extra charge, and use of the facilities until we left!

They picked us up from the port upon our return - again, no charge - and we headed home after being dropped off at our cars.

I cannot overstress how friendly and helpful the staff is. I would stay again in a heart beat.
