"Beautiful Hotel"
This was my first trip to Galveston and Moody Gardens is the best hotel for its attractions, views of the pyramids, fabulous rooms and hospitality. It's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of Seawall Blvd. Moody Gardens offers free entrance to Palm Beach, a family friendly and water park. I recommend taking the whole family to stay at Moody Gardens!

"not very happy"
Had arrived with heavy rains and flooding to enjoy the water park and pool there. Room air conditioner leaking , room smelled like Mildew carpet wet all over room. Had to change rooms. Left a day early hoping to be refunded due to weather and pools closed. Hotel Manager said she would notify you that we checked out a day early to get a refund due to weather. Hopefully we will be able to refund. We were on a cruise and didn't know the weather was going to be bad in time to cancel the whole stay. than the condition of the room and first of all when we checked in she didnt have our reservation. Bad experience all the way around.

"Great place to stay."
Moody Gardens is a beautiful center with much to offer for a fun vacation spot, not the least of which is Galveston Island itself. Everything about our stay was positive except one small thing; no complimentary breakfast is offered. For a place of this size and expense, I believe this should be included. Otherwise all was fabulous.

"Sad"
It took us close to 4 hrs to check in. We moved four times to get in a room that was requested. Pool bar closed at 4 PM on a Sunday. At the end when we checked out we finally got someone to listen. I'm not saying we wouldn't go back but there was way to much confusion going on.

It was really nice, perfect location with lots to do, a little high on cost but overall a great get-away for the family close to home. They did close the pool area too long after a storm rolled through but had the following day to enjoy the pool side bar.

The overall experience was great. The opportunities for the hotel is better communication to guests regarding the amenities and services included with your stay (I.e. Free Onsite shuttle service and free access to water park, etc.) an provide better onsite shuttle service as there was excessive wait times (15 to 25 minutes)

Very nice hotel. Great breakfasts at the Cafe. Very family oriented - a couple looking for rest & relaxation might not care for all the kids around. We did have a screaming kid on our floor. Despite all the kids, we enjoyed our stay. Next time we should bring our grandkids.

"Overnight get-a-way"
First time visit for me and my girlfriend. We were both very impressed with the cleanliness of the facility, and the attractions offered. We were a little disappointed that a couple of the places like the pool bar were closing early due to lack of people... That made us, and the other 6 or 8 people feel a little insignificant! They closed at 4:00, and really since about 3:30 the guys working were focused on getting out of there at 4:01, so not very attentive. There's some temporary signage direct pedestrians SUPPOSEDLY guiding people form the hotel to the Palm Beach area...The sign pointed the wrong direction and as a result, we had walked ALLLL the way around to the WRONG side, which of course is gated and pad locked. Very frustrating. We were able to finally find a worker to let us BOTH sneak in through the ladies locker room to avoid a significantly long return walk around to the gate. It was 96 degrees. I wasn't happy about that. We made the most of things however, so overall I would say we were happy.

We were locked out of our room while my daughter was asleep on my wife's shoulder and one of the house keepers called down to confirm it was our room and let us in and helped us with our keys.

"Very nice but a bit overpriced"
Light out over door. Paint peeling over shower. Hook missing behind bathroom door. Pools close too early. Spa way over priced and a 20% gratuity is added to spa services. Which is great if you could be confident in their services. I thought gratuity is a way to express gratitude for a job well done. Nice hotel compared to many. Rooms do not have a microwave. Everything closes early so no late night snacking. Breakfast lunch and dinner for 13 and over was $17 at the hotel. I would choose it again because of all the activities near the hotel.

"Nice hotel not enough amenities"
I thought the hotel was nice however, the available resources in the hotel were not up to par. I would have liked the microwave, possibly a kitchen as the room was relatively small. For the room being so expensive for one night there wasn't even a free continental breakfast. With that being said I enjoyed my stay thoroughly but I will not be returning.

"Disappointing"
After hearing about how this is the best hotel to stay in while in Galveston, our expectations were a bit higher. It rained during our entire stay, but knew that wouldn't matter bc Moody Gardens has a lot to offer indoors. All of the pyramids were closed except the rainforest pyramid. Also, many activities were canceled due to the weather, like smores for the kids. Also, we waited in line to get my kids' faces painted and then was told it was too late for them even though it was still within the face painting window of time. It was an overall disappointing experience and customer service could be better at a "nice" hotel. I have stayed at less expensive hotels and the sevice was way better.

"Our second year at the Moody Gardens Hotel"
Our second trip here with the grandies. Perfect vacay location for families. The buffet is great for the kids!! Beds too soft and noise between rooms and hall bothered us this year. Wish the S'Mores ran longer at night for the kidlets. Closing at 7pm is a bit early for summertime hours when the kids have just returned from a day out and cleaning up and dinner. It is such an easy one stop vacay. Just park the car and walk to all attractions. The pool is lovely plus Palm Beach being included is a plus!!

After a fiasco with my son and his new bride not being able to board their 7-day fully paid cruise, I scrambled from another state to find the stranded couple a place to stay. I told my son to call the hotel and explain "their story". Moody Gardens Hotel and Resort stepped and made a fiasco into something funtastic for the newlywed couple! Thanks for saving their honeymoon!!!

"Would definitely stay here again"
Stayed for two nights with two young children. Rooms were nice, big and clean. Housekeeping was wonderful and went out of their way. The hotel restaurant was OK (only ate ate café), tried the barbeque buffet one night and food was dry, would not eat buffet in future. One surprising thing was that our waiter did not charge for dinner from kids menu because he said kids under 6 eat for free. My kids did not want to go back home, already planning a return trip.

"Great hotel, lots of activities close by"
We chose to stay here because we were going to Moody Gardens. It was easy walking distance but they also offer a shuttle to the various areas of Moody Gardens (pyramids and Palm Beach). Schlitterbahn water park is really close by too, but the hotel included wristband to Palm Beach in with the room reservation (great water park for kids, even smaller kids). Great pool with a swim up bar. They have lots of kid activities (in summer at least) - smores, life-size chess board, bean bag games, etc. Everything seemed well maintained. There are restaurants on site and at moody gardens.

"Perfect for families with children."
In addition to it's location near Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn in the summer there is free access to Palm Beach at Moody Gardens (fireworks are Friday and Saturday night) when you stay at the hotel, outdoor spaces have games set up, kids activities are offered and Saturday was an outdoor movie night (with popcorn). Would recommend to anyone with children. If you are interested in dining at the 4 Star - Shearn's Seafood and Prime Steaks - on the top floor there is a dress code (we didn't pack for it so we missed out).

Perfect location if you're wanting to go to Moody Gardens or Schlitterbahn. You couldn't get closer. It's a nice hotel as well. We spent a lot of time at the beach, so we had to drive over every time. By staying at the hotel, we were given free tickets to the water park at Moody Gardens. It was very small, an my older teenagers did not enjoy it, especially when you see Schlitterbahn across the street. The hotel itself was lovely.

"Not enough staff to service/clean the rooms?"
Lovely Hotel with nice amenities. All of the food options are great for families. The bell staff was always welcoming. Unfortunately, the children's pack was not available on checkin. The worst part was that we never had either of our two rooms serviced when we were out (5 hours the first day) and had the DO NOT DISTURB sign off. In addition, the room service people were always extremely loud in the hallway.
