Seems that I make one or two trips a year to Moody Gardens for a conference, I am never disappointed, great service, fantastically fast internet in the conference area and great banquet food, The lobby bar is also a great spot to catch up with friends

Surfside is a great beach house in Galveston. It has an excellent view of the water from inside and the deck. The set up is very comfortable with a nice kitchen and master bedroom. Excellent place for a nice quiet and relaxing Galveston vacation.

Expected a grand stay and this visit left me a little lacking. The front hotel entrance was dirty in appearance upon arrival. Bell staff were not present. The worst part of my experience was the check in with Kelly. She was beligerent and rude. She would not let you get a word out without cutting you off. I was not...

I stayed on the island this past weekend, not at the hotel, but in a condo and wanted to indulge in some spa services. I got a seaweed hydrotherapy bath and deep tissue massage. The Spa area was very relaxing and both services were worth the money I paid. I was very pleased with my visit.

We stayed here overnight during the week after New Years to visit the Festival of Lights and Ice Land. The lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas and check in was quick. Our room was very clean and good size with a large bath as well. It was not busy at the restaurants, lounges or gift shop. Service at both the...

I was quite surprised to see that it had so much space. The ball room chandelier's were so big and bright. The Stage Room had a lot of seats, there were trash cans every couple of seats so it was very convenient. The lights were bright. The Lobby was a big place enough for someone to do like 20 backflips....

An older hotel that has been maintained well. Things had been updated about 8-10 years ago and the room we had was showing it's age, however, it was very comfortable and we did enjoy our stay.
