Stayed 2 nights and everything was great. The room was nice with a great view of the pyramids. We ate at the Cafe and food was delicious. They had activities for the kids. The staff was very helpful and nice.

We booked Moody Gardens on a tip from a friend. We normally go to Port A but are so thankful we ventured out to Galveston. The hotel was nice and the entire staff was helpful and friendly. The onsite restaurants were great (2 of our kids ate free every time), the attractions were awesome, and the heated pool was great...

Circus party with DJ, face painting, popcorn, snow cone and the nightly snores we all enjoyed. Their was never a dull moment activities were always available for the kids. My only...

SERVICE = I ranked it terrible not because of staff who are great but the management call on the description below. Family of four with two children two and under. We arrived early and wanted to have brunch. Our stay package include $40 credit in the Cafe but you need to know your room # to utilize the voucher. Easy...

Leaving car at parking garage for week of cruise was a great add-on to the overnight stay. Room was fine. Water pressure not the best. Hallways and particularly lobby were very noisy - to keep in context there was a high school dance competition that weekend so tons of kids. Breakfast at the hotel was great. Rate seemed a little...

Our dance studio stayed at Moody Gardens this past weekend and I couldn't be more pleased with the Hotel. It was nice to be connected to the convention center so we could go back and forth from the competition to our room but really, the staff is what made it such a lovely weekend.

Moody Gardens Hotel is a huge complex with many attractions nearby. The Schlitterbahn is literally across the street. On site attractions include the Moody Gardens "stuff" too... enough to keep you busy for more than a day. The hotel is well kept and is very kid oriented. The rooms are adequate with nothing spectacular but nothing to complain about either....
