Harbor House Hotel & Marina at Pier 21
Ranked #3 of 51 Hotels in Galveston
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 21, 2013

The reception desk is a little hard to locate, its between two restaurants and not really labeled well. The staff at the desk is friendly and nice. The lobby and elevator is small. The rooms are large, but the have a LOT furniture packed in. The toilet and shower are in a separate room than the sink. There is a large closet right by the entry. Our first night, there was a Coast Guard ship parked in the harbor and I could hear it running all night long. There is a web cam you can check out at Galveston.com/webcams. It's the Harbor House Pier 21 webcam and is literally on the Harbor House. (You can also watch the cruise ships come in!)

Thank you for your feedback on your stay at Harbor House. My apologies regarding the noise from the Coast Guard vessel. That's one challenge of being located on a working port but there is a beautiful view. Please know that the hotel is planning a complete renovation at the end of the year. We hope that you will stay with is again soon.

The rooms are very spacious, and we had an absolute wonderful view of the harbor from our window. Linda G. was a real hoot, and helped make our visit even more enjoyable. Every time we saw any of the staff there, they were very friendly. We'd spent 4 nights at the San Luis then moved to the Harbor House. We'll NEVER go back to the San Luis! Harbor House was cheaper and just more hospitable.
