We were working a show at the Convention Center on Black Friday & Saturday after Thanksgiving (Home for the Holidays Holiday Market, which is on those days every year, lots of great vendors and holiday shopping). But we just live outside Houston, so we like to come to Moody Gardens on Thanksgiving Day, enjoy their buffet, then collapse until it... More

We chose Moody Gardens for a recent soccer coaches clinic and everything went perfectly! Normally changing locations for an event that has close to 1,000 attendees will have a number of problems because of all the changes. The Moody Garden's staff went above what most convention center staff would normally do to make sure our show was just how we... More

My wife and kids stayed here for an night last week while we attended Moody Gardens and the Festival of Lights. I had stayed in the the hotel once before but quickly realized I was paying for the "name" more than anything. This time only reaffirmed it. If you cannot get a great deal, you will be sorely disappointed in... More

Gathered together from three corners of Texas to once again enjoy this spectacular destination for our yearly family reunion. November or December especially memorable for the multitude of activities offered via family membership passes. Wonderful views from our suite too! Thank you Moody family for this vision brought to reality years ago!

The staff was wonderful, kind, and friendly. We were lost and our GPS could not pick up the location. Called the hotel and the staff member was so friendly, she stayed on the phone with us and gave me turn by turn directions until we could see the hotel. Our room was very, very nice and clean. Loved the Christmas... More

We attended a recent conference and extended it into a family weekend. The property is beautiful, especially lit up at night. The room was spacious an clean. We enjoyed our stay and the all of the attractions at Moody Gardens. Two complaints that would have made the review 5 stars: The wifi was extremely spotty. It was almost impossible to... More

From the time we checked in with Victoria Jurenko, she made us feel very welcome and once she found out we were celebrating my birthday, she sent the nicest note and chocolate covered strawberry's to the room. When she saw us in the lobby later that day, she greeted us as if we were the best of the best friends.... More

We visited the second weekend in November to kick off our holiday season. We got their Family Holiday Package for one night. The lobby is beautifully decorated for Christmas. At check-in my children each received a bag with a little stuffed animal. They were obviously cheap but it's the thought that counts?? We had a room with a view of... More
