Brandon and the bell staff go out of their way to make guests feel welcome an at home. The rooms are spacious and quite comfortable. Reasonably priced and they provide transport to and from our cruise ship while they keep our car in their garage.

We have stayed many times thru the years at Moody Gardens Hotel. It always is a great place to stay when you have children. We like the parking under the hotel, your hotel card key is needed to park under there and you can go straight up to the hotel with all your luggage using the elevator. The elevators are... More

Saturday stay in one of the few rooms with a king bed and balcony overlooking the pool. Had fun at the lazy river. Did not know Palm Beach was included and bought a 2 fer via Groupon. Pool is very nice and was refreshing!.

We had a nice 2 night stay at Moody Gardens. Due to a cancelled flight, we did not check-in until 2:00 am and our room was unavailable. After initially offering a hospitality suite with 2 roll out beds for 2 adults and 2 kids, the hotel offered an upgraded room at no cost. I felt the customer service was exceptional!... More

Hotel is nice and clean. Fun, relaxed resort atmosphere. Pools are great - there is a length pool indoors and a lounge pool outside. Note if you go during off peak season, waterslides are closed, and swim-up bar closed. The pyramids are a must see (additional cost). The bar and restaurant staff are friendly. Note however it is near impossible... More

My wife, son, and I came to MGH on a whim with a weeks notice. We are 2 days into our stay and while we have been pleased, I'd still say there is room for improvement. The hotel, while upper class, is showing its age. The rooms have no microwave which is stupid given they have refrigerators and I'm sure... More

My husband And I stayed here Sunday-Tuesday. We were in the north Tower on the first floor. The room was large and clean, although sink and tub are slow to drain. The room was quiet. We only heard noise once at about 3 am when some drunk women couldn't find their room; and repeatedly announced how drunk they were and... More

First, this is the second time we have stayed at the Moody Gardens hotel and thoroughly enjoyed both excursions. However, you should be aware that if you RESERVE a KING room and you have a late arrival, you are NOT GUARANTEED a king room. As was very politely explained to us, your reservation guarantees you a room, not a specific... More
