Moody Gardens was extremely accommodation and lovely. I was able to check in early on the day of my wedding with no problem. The front desk ladies were fabulous and were super sweet. They delivered us milk and cookies too to top off our night! Wonderful stay with wonderful staff!

This is a beautiful resort type hotel. On the expensive side, but amenities reflect that-gorgeous. Amazing details for kids. A totally separate area for the kids to play, even had a bounce house when we were there. Giant chess and checkers, plus the beautiful pool. Free self parking under the hotel, plus a huge lot beside it. Water park in...

We booked two rooms for a pre-cruise stay. The rooms were spotlessly clean and pleasant. Since they were in 'the tower' we had to use two separate elevator rides to get from lobby to room, but it was only a small inconvenience. The staff was helpful and courteous, the food in the 'Cafe in the Park' was well-prepared and we...

Moody Gardens is probably the best family-oriented hotel in Galveston. Lots of fun kids activities going on, that add that little extra to a stay. I wish they provided a discount to the pyramids for staying at the hotel. Seems like it would make sense to offer that. Also, a little nitpicky, but Moody Gardens is on the west end...

I had my graduation ceremony in their convention center so we had a good rate. This hotel is very kid friendly. Lots of stuff to do for my 4-year-old. I just didn't like the traffic going in and out of the hotel. Would love to come back if the price is right! 😀

We just returned from spending a few days in Galveston. We chose to stay at Moody Gardens for his location and we feel very secure staying there. Our room was beautiful, the staff was friendly, rooms were cleaned quickly. They will be opening new attractions soon for the summer. It is the only place we will stay when visiting Galveston.

We loved the 3 pyramids nearby, they provided wonderful day "field trips" for the family. The food the restaurant was wonderful, the kids activities were great too! my two year old had a wonderful time. We stayed here for two nights and enjoyed every minute of it until we headed for our Caribbean Cruise.
