HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2016

We stayed in room 306 at the Harbor House Hotel on Pier 21. The location is fantastic, and we had a lovely bay view from our window. Our room overlooked the pier, Galveston Bay, and Willie G's restaurant. The room decor was modern and very clean. With its grey tile and massive shower, the bathroom looked like something out of...

We were in Galveston to see my son at Texas A&M, and decided to stay somewhere we had not before. Harbor House looked very interesting, being on the water, and near so many restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised at the design of the hotel, from the dangling lights in the lobby, to the beams and woodwork in the rooms. We... More

We stayed two nights mid week. The service at check-in was wonderful. The room was very nice! We had a wonderful view of the dock where the cruise ship was. Many food venues in the immediate area, as well as within walking distance! Parking is very close and convenient, although it was $10 per day extra, still a great bargain... More

I am so excited I found this hotel! Friendly staff, clean really nice rooms. And affordable prices!! I love the decor in the rooms..the bathroom is awesome. Great location next to several restaurants. By the harbor, watching the ships. Sure beats paying high prices on the sea wall in not so great hotels. Dee was most gracious helping us. We... More

Poor rating based on customer service. We just called to book the night before a cruise and was told they and their partner hotels will no longer allow one-night stays. This is unfortunate as we have stayed many times and feel this is a poor way to treat loyal guests. If you are staying for more than one night, the... More

Our hotels and most hotels on the island often require two night stays on high demand days like Saturdays. Most other days are available for single night stays as are some Saturdays. We apologize for the inconvenience. More

This boutique hotel is my favorite place to stay in Galveston. We are not beach-goers, so the location of Harbor House is ideal for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, and historical sites. The rooms are large & clean with nice views of the harbor. The secure parking at $10 per night is a bargain compared to other cities. We enjoy the convenience... More

We absolutely love our time spent at the Harbor House in Galveston. The staff has always been accommodating, especially Dee, who went out of her way on this trip to help us find a local restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Each time we vacation in Galveston, this is the the place we stay at.
