Unique hotel close to cruise ship port. Rooms have urban feel & are very large. We had a nice room looking out over the harbor. Enjoyed watching the ships come & go. We did not get the pleasure of experiencing the sweet check in lady other reviewers mentioned. We didn't get anything but a key from the gentleman working. Would... More

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...

Let me be clear - this is a very nice hotel; it's clean, has a great location, no problem with staff - under other circumstances, I would give this hotel a solid 4 rating. HOWEVER, the noise level was ridiculous, and it was no fault of the hotel. While the location is great, there is also a train track that... More

Me, my wife and two boys spent a long weekend there and really enjoyed our stay. Cool location away from all the beach stuff but Galveston is so small that the beach was only a short drive away. The hotel is small but the rooms were newly remodeled and very unique with beamed ceilings and a cool bathroom which featured... More

We came in late on Friday for our cruise on Saturday. When we checked in we were told they gave us a complimentary upgrade to a suite. It was awesome and the entire stay was great. The continental breakfast offered a good variety of choices and the bed was very comfy!

We enjoyed our stay, especially Dee. She will really make you feel welcome. Ask for Dee when you arrive. She will really make you feel special, she delivers GREAT hospitality. The views around the harbor was beautiful too.

Dee at the front desk was great!!! So friendly and helpful. The room was huge. The room was clean and comfortable with a great view. A lot of restaurants in the area within walking distance. Within walking distance of downtown (The Strand). Great place to stay. Will definitely stay here again. Close to the cruise port.

We spent three nights at this delightful hotel this past week. There are many good things to say about this contemporary style, boutique hotel . View -- end room on 3rd (and top) floor facing cruise ship dock -- is a perfect view of Pier 21, cruise ship dock, and channel for watching boats! Other rooms have a good view,... More

We are pleased you had a great trip and stay at Harbor House. Sorry about the issue with the outside booking company. At times there can be an issue when cancelling when booked through outside resources. We always encourage guests to book direct with the hotel. More
