I stay at Moody Gardens hotel several times a yr, both business and pleasure trips. I love this place! The hotel is very nice, rooms are always clean, service is great if you need something extra. My favorite room/suite is the one on the 3rd floor; it has a private balcony with seating that overlooks the pool. The 9th floor...

We stayed at Moody Gardens for a gymnastics competition and I'm glad we did. Great experience. I wish they had more restaurants on site, but overall, the restaurant we did visit for every meal was good and gave us enough choices to satisfy our family. I wish the exhibits were open during our visit. The aquarium was being renovated and...

The 3D and 4D attractions (Sponge Bob SubPants, and Ice Age) are short (15 minutes), low tech, obsolete and way overpriced. They need to update the graphics and movies.One day, the housekeeping people skipped making up and cleaning our room. We mistakenly left behind a cell phone cord, and the hotel wants us to pay $21 to ship us this...

This was our first time to stay at The Moody Gardens and it was fantastic. We have stayed at the San Luis and Hotel Galvez, but this was by far our favorite. There is so much to do for all ages. You will not even have to leave the resort. The hotel manager Sal Navarro was just wonderful. He made...

The hotel was mainly clean as usual, the only real dirty part I found was in the diner on the first floor of our last day, the table still had a fair amount of crumbs on it from the previous guest. They couldn't get my last name right up until the last day. Out pull out bed in the room...

We had been in Houston helping my MIL with house stuff-just what the kids want to do for spring break. So we decided to break it up with a couple of days down in Galveston, and my hubby decided this hotel would be good. We were disappointed to find out the aquarium was still closed, so skipped the gardens altogether,...

From the moment my family and I walked into the Moody Gardens Hotel, we felt both at home and welcomed. The accommodations were beautiful, clean and so comfortable that it quickly became a "home away from home". We hated to leave and easily would have stayed another week if our schedules allowed. Be sure to put this on your list...
