The rooms are very large, modern and well furnished but that was the only good point. No charm or warmth. The check-in experience and the breakfast were both as miserable as each other. It's all such a shame. It could be so much better, especially as the location is good. Incidentally, if you do decide to stay here, don't book... More

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 decided to make a quick trip to Galveston. Discovered Harbor House, a Wyndham property on Pier 21. Very close to Willie G's Seafood Restaurant, Nonna Tony's was downstairs, also around the corner was the sailing ship "Elissa". We took advantage of going to see a movie about the great 1900 hurricane that hit Galveston. The theater was literally across... More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your "quick trip to Galveston" and stay at Harbor House Hotel. As you mentioned, it's in a great location. We love that you took time to see The Great Storm at Pier 21 Theater. It's a wonderful documentary on Galveston, the 1900 Storm and the resilience of our community. We hope that you'll make... More

The location of this property is wonderful. Very close to The Strand. Pier 21 has nice restaurants, and museums as well. Dee was the front desk attendant and was such a breath of fresh air. She was very helpful and super friendly. The room was clean and the view was great as well. Our little one night getaway was amazing.... More

We wanted a getaway. We decided to stay on the harbor side of Galveston. Harbor House was really nice. The room was clean, modern, comfortable. And Dee at the front desk was awesome. Hospitality is the right profession for her! There is no room service, but restaurants are right outside the hotel. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Love this place!!! There is alot to do and see right around Pier 21 and you are within walking distance of the strand. The facilities are well kept and love the nautical decor! Dee, from the front desk, offered us some great info about local restaurants and was very friendly and helpful! We will definitely be back!

Large room with small fridge and microwave. Very spacious but yet quiet. Close to excellent restaurants and local shopping on the historic Strand. Unfortunately no pool or spa as part of hotel, but you do get privileges at sister hotels in the area.

If you need a pool or want to walk across the street to the beach, this is probably not a hotel for you. But for everyone else, it's perfect. It's probably the nicest, most spacious hotel in the city if you're looking for big clean rooms in the middle of everything. Walk to the strand or literally across the street... More

Love this hotel. The rooms are amazing; spacious and comfortable. A ceiling fan with vaulted ceilings. Large shower. Quiet at night with very comfortable bed and bedding. Wonderful. Close to the strand and the cruise line. Walking distance to attractions and dining.
