We stayed at this hotel because they offered a park & ride for our Journey Cruise. For their cheapest room, the shuttle service & after tax we paid almost $183.00. If we would of parked at the Galveston Port of parking it would of been about $150.00 for the two weeks of parking. Now this hotel uses Moody Gardens for their shuttle service because somehow these two companies are linked together. Here is the down fall to this deal. Since Moody Gardens Hotel is the shuttle service their guest come first & are high priority. So the shuttle picked us up first then went to Moody Gardens to pick up their people. After sitting their for 20 minutes the driver came back & said they didn't have anybody to pick up at that time so we went to the port. He told us the pick up times where 9:00 am, 10:30 am & 12:30 pm when we return & where to find them. So when we returned we found the driver & got loaded to be returned. Now since Moody Gardens in priority they got dropped off first. The driver called in all their valet numbers so their vehicles were waiting for them up front when we arrived. Then he went into the hotel to get their keys & then unloaded their luggage. This whole process took us a half hour of messing around & we didn't get dropped off until almost 10:00 am. If I was to ever do this again I'd just stay at Moody Gardens or park at the port which is much faster.

Hotel's Favorite
We always stay here when we cruise out of Galveston. Mini golf and a pool for the kids, excellent staff, continental breakfast with pancakes (kid favorite), clean large rooms, and my favorite part...they take/pick up to/from the cruise terminal and our vehicle is under covered parking while we are gone. Last night the staff recommended Nick’s for dinner and they weren’t either!

Marcus, desk clerk, was great. Rooms are fine & large. Breakfast selections are very limited. Good cruise shuttle to pier. If you book thru hotel, it's included. If not, it's $16 or $17 each person round trip. I'd stay there again before a cruise.

After 100 miles on my bike, I want somewhere close to the finish line, good value, hot shower and a clean bed, and the Inn at The Waterpark has all of that. Stayed there perhaps four times, and it does exactly what I need. Friendly staff, too.

This was our first cruise out of Galveston and since we were flying in we needed a place to stay and find a shuttle After looking at reviews for the IATWP we thought it would be perfect. Well it was not at all what we expected. The hotel was very dated and out in the middle of nowhere. The restaurant was closed and you are looking at a mile and a half walk to someplace to eat. Kids tried to play mini golf and were practically carried away by mosquitoes. We then tried the pool and found all of the pool chairs broken and there was a sewage smell that surrounded the area. Went to breakfast the next morning and was treated to stale cereal and a pancake machine that was empty. The staff was very friendly and the shuttle took us to our cruise, but the cost of staying here did not justify what you receive. Overall, this place should be used for cruise parking and shuttle, don’t waste your money staying.
