It wasn't a steamy hot Texas day like I had anticipated so we didn't use the pool as planned, especially since the water was frigid. :( For what it was I thought the price was bit much, but overall it was a nice place to stay but I don't know that I would spend the money again.

My son and daughter in law have been traveling and moving with their assignments and their children. Moody Garden Hotel and Spa know how to honor and celebrate those special times of rest and retreat! Perfect rooms, incredible views, and everything accessible within walking distance!

Stayed here recently while my husband had a business meeting - it had been almost 20 years since last here. Very quiet since off-season, but rooms were beautifully decorated. Pool very nice with comfortable chairs and great bar service. Not on the beach which is only limitation.

My husband and I wanted to do a quick anniversary weekend so we picked moody gardens. The hotel grounds are great the the hotel is on the older side. Customer service good and the attractions are great. A little on the pricey side for the quality of the rooms but other than that no complaints. Very clean.

Considering we got a cheaper rate than normal for a Friday night stay, it wasn't bad. All of the staff we encountered were very nice and friendly. The king sized room was spacious and appeared clean. We liked that we could enjoy Palm Beach while there also. Although it got very crowded and we went back to the hotel pool...

Great location and pre-cruise hotel but it did come at a cost. I was only there for one night and I found the staff to be exceptionally friendly. I actually wish I had more time to explore the area! I also felt the cost was high considering no breakfast was included. I have to say I am literally only knocking...

This is the first time I go to Moody G. For a retreat that used the convention center. The CC seems outdated and older than the hotel itself, it does have potential. I loved the restaurant on the 9th floor which we used to have breakfast and lunch. The dinner offered for us was Italian and it was delicious! The...

Very nice hotel. Extremely convenient to Schlitterbahn waterpark. The hotel even shuttled us over there and gave us a phone number to call for pick up. There was a band playing at Palm Beach with beautiful fireworks at 9:30. The zip line and rope course was definitely one of my kids favorites.
