"Great hotel and resort, only downside was food"
This is a great place to stay in Galveston with tons to do. The attractions are lots of fun, especially around the holidays (Christmas). They have two extra exhibits, Festival of Lights and ice land which were amazing. The only slight downside to the hotel was that the restaurants at the attractions and in the hotel didn't have very good food, but we […] didn't try the fanciest restaurant, so that might've been better. Other than that, this place is wonderful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A terrific place to stay!!!"
The room was great.. The staff was friendly and helpful... We are in one if the resteraunts at the hotel and it was great too.. We will definitely be going back...:))Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very disappointed in the hotel. Appeared to be more of a gimmick than anything. A/C in room did not work. Bed was super uncomfortable-more so than any other hotel we've ever stayed at. Front desk had zero personality and didn't appear inclined to assist with anything. Rooms came with zero information on hotel or nearby conveniences. Pretty sure we paid […] for our valet parking directly to the valet himself.... as our truck was parked in a very odd location away from where most other valet parking was--he asked for cash rather than putting it on our room tab.. interesting. Wait staff at the Café was nice though.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall we enjoyed our short stay.. But the bed was not the greatest. The hotel staff very accommodating. The restaurants very convenient& very good. We would recommend this hotel & may stay again in the future...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Moody Gardens Hotel"
It was pretty good overall. Restaurant needs to be updated with new menu and decor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Christmas "staycation" to visit the Festival of lights and Ice Sculpture. Hotel Checkin took over an hour, and I have to say I have never experience that anywhere. The lines were really long for the Christmas Holiday, and I wished they had more staff to help with checkin. Hotel was clean, and tons of things to do for the family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pre Christmas fun"
Great weekend getaway for the kids and I! Room was beautiful, plenty of actitivies for all ages, and prices were reasonable. Will for sure come back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed at hotel for one night prior to taking a cruise out of Galveston. The hotel is excellent, food, service, rtc. They allow you to park your car for the duration of the cruise and also provide shuttle service to the cruise pier. In addition on the return from the cruise port, since I had valet parked on arrival, they had my car waiting for me. Although […] we are a senior couple, their are numerous activities for all ages near the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Thanksgiving Family Bliss"
We decided to splurge and get a room for Thanksgiving Night. Went to the Thanksgiving Brunch at the Hotel. We have done this for a number of years. The food is always great. This year, some friends joined us for Brunch. After our friends left, we made all the "Gardens" attractions. It was wonderful. We have a 15 YO son. It is hard to go places that […] pleases we parents as well as the kid. This was 24 hours of pure family bliss. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Thanksgiving weekend getaway"
Had a wonderful visit. Tried to get table into 9th floor restaurant, but was fully booked. Told could eat across hall with a limited menu. Food & view were excellent. Could use better signage to hotel parking from road.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"only problem long lines at check in but nice stay"
Everything was perfect except check in was un organized with long linesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a quick family get away. I thought the hotel was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I would rate the hotel 3 1/2 stars. The lobby was nicely decorated for the holidays and it is conveniently located to walk to the Moody Garden activities. Upon check in, the staff member wasn't very friendly but we were promptly checked in. There was a concierge stand but no one was there to answer our questions on a Monday. The room was clean and comfortable. […] The hotel food at the cafe was okay for something quick. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice and pleasant"
We were there for the lone star bikers rally 2014. The hotel was nice/clean and the entire hotel staff was excellent. The free parking was a plus. Its a must do again type hotel. The price was a bit elevated for the event but worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice weekend. Shopped on the Strand, ate at The Spot (okay, but would not eat there again). Had a great stay. Pool was heated, kids loved it. Great place to stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice and clean. Loved the heated pool and hot tub. Can't wait to return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
we had a spa treatment and it was wonderful. They don't give a very good deep tissue massage but otherwise it was wonderful. Especially the pedicures the girls were awesome.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Family get away"
Everythings was nice and confortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
first the hotel is beautiful and very clean. We picked this hotel becaues of a friend had enjoyed her stay there. I was also celebrating my 59th birthday. Upon arriving we submitted our charge card for the room,the card was declinned desk clerk in turned handed the card back to us and was very rude and sharp "Its declined" i in turn said "Thats impossible […] i always check my card before leaving on a trip" i handed her back the card, She swiped it again and of course it worked. I believe she could have handled it with better taste. Not even to offer to swipe it again or to even say "It could be the machine or maybe i swiped it to fast. This was not the way i wanted to start my weekend,we drove five hours to enjoy the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Loved the entire experience. I'll be back soon. MicGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel, a lot of things to do."
I had family come in from out of town. They had small children who I thought would enjoy the activities etc. Since check in was not til much later in the afternoon, we did not have a room key to use the pool for the children. We then went to the beach to kill time. By the time we got back, everything other that the pool were closed. Not a big deal, […] we just went to the pool. Later in the vening, we ordered room service, 2 pizzas. I think they were $17.00 each, with some random charges including tip I believe came out to be $47.00. Ten dollars over what it should have been. Not the end of the world. It was HORRIBLE. The cot was equally as bad, very loud and uncomfortable. The wins were the staff was friendly and quick to respond to any needs, and the establishment was well manicured and maintained. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I booked this hotel because of the location. I participated in the 5150 triathlon and everything was located next to the hotel. The pool was amazing and my kids were able to play and have fun. Rooms had plenty of room and the beds were very comfortable .Genuine Expedia guest review
I took my 2 granddaughters ages 10 & 7 for a girls weekend. The girls were so excited and the entire hotel staff from the front desk to the restaurant staff made them feel as though they were princesses. I can not tell you how delighted I am that I chose this location for their first real hotel experience and made memories beyond our wildest dream. […] The girls thought that the valet was their personal chauffer as Mr. Ray took us in the golf cart to the visitor's center to get all our tickets for the attractions so each time the 7 yr. old didn't want to walk she just wanted to call Mr. Ray to come get her . And then before we left I think they both knew most of the staff . When the girls wanted anything they didn't know exactly where it was or what time something started they said just call Kristina (front desk) she will do it for us she said if we needed anything just call so Mimi we can call her .... The hotel is very kid friendly with lots of activities for them to do even if you didn't want to do any paying attractions they have full day activities for free. Oh and the restaurant staff also made over them with pulling out their chairs and putting the napkins in their laps and per our waiter only crystal glasses would do for these young ladies.. It was so nice to see that everyone loved their jobs and made our time so special . What a special treat for all 3 of us girls ... Thanks again Brenda Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Family fun in the Moody Gardens area"
We stayed for the Galveston 5150 as a family of 5 (three small kids). Large, well-appointed room and nice facilities in the property. It exceeded our expectations.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean, stocked, and beautifully decorated and furnished room; nice amenities; quiet. Their spa provided one of the most relaxing facial experiences i have ever had and included lounging in a darkened, quiet meditation room pre and post facial! The beach is just a short drive away and the moody gardens pyramids are just a short walk from the hotel. A […] wonderful experience and well worth the money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We have stayed here many times and it is always great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Check-in needed more help at 4 PM. Thank you to the Bell Hop for telling us about the parking garage. Very nice visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Next to Schlitterban"
Not worth the money. Room nice, service not so nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a very nice stay at Moody Gardens, my only complaint is the immediate exterior of the hotel had hundreds of mosquitos. I know they can not control the entire grounds, but the exterior patios and pools area should be fogged. We have stayed here several times and this is the first time the bugs could carry you away.Genuine Expedia guest review
We are a family of four that went to Galveston to experience Moody Gardens Aquarium and other attractions. The hotel was clean and nice. It great for my family with great location. I did not shop prices much but I thought the room rate was high when I booked. It was worth the price, in the end, for our family.Genuine Expedia guest review
I live in Houston but have never been to the Moody Gardens Hotel. Every time I checked the prices were too high. Well, I found a good deal on Expedia and booked it. It was waaay better than I imagined it would be. The staff was very accommodating and it was much more upscale than I thought it would be. I did not know that Palm Beach was included in […] the price and found out when I checked in. It wasn't for us as we were on a romantic trip and Palm Beach was more for families with kids. Get to know the restaurants and their menu and prices before you go as one of the hotel restaurants had buffets but they began at a certain time. My only regret is not knowing more about what the hotel offered in order to take advantage of it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay for any kind of event"
The hotel itself is great as a whole and very family friendly. The only disappointment - the hotel guests have access to three Palm Beach, and are instructed not to take towels there, but there were no clean towels available both times we went there. :(Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Labor Day weekend"
The hotel was not worth the cost. The breakfast buffett was bland tasting. The internet was down for most of one day. The poolheater was broken and the pool was FREEZING. The private beach was too crowded and not really a beach. The shampoo was terrible!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is nice, we enjoyed the pool and they also give you access to their Palmbeach. Although for the price I expected at last a simple breakfast. Something I did notice is the lack of proper ventilation in the bathroom, but besides that it was great staying thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing location and beautiful hotel"
It was amazing! I wish I would of found Moody Gardens much sooner! Beautiful hotel and amazing amenities! This is a must see hotel and deifintely a place you will return!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The entire hotel decor and landscape were lovely. The facility and its available activities were quite entertaining. The service in the cafe for breakfast was substandard. Check-in took much too long. The exercise room treadmills were worn out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
