We stayed in room 306 at the Harbor House Hotel on Pier 21. The location is fantastic, and we had a lovely bay view from our window. Our room overlooked the pier, Galveston Bay, and Willie G's restaurant. The room decor was modern and very clean. With its grey tile and massive shower, the bathroom looked like something out of...

Reminded us of a cool hotel in San Francisco we stayed in. Staff was friendly rooms are huge and very well appointed. Cool area for shopping and eating out. Very safe area with lots to see and do with a short walking distance. We have found our Galveston spot.

I truly enjoyed staying at this hotel for several reasons: Location is ideal to visit and walk around the strand where visitors have access to numerous antique shops, art galleries, museums, coffee shops, restaurants and historic architecture. The hotel is also ideal for those spending some days before going on a cruise, for the cruise pier is within walking distance.... More

Harbor House was a nice change from the typical chain hotel. Staff was very cheerful and courteous (Dee was awesome!). The room was huge and the walk in shower was a nice surprise.

I've stayed at the Harbor House several times over the past few months. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The hotel doesn't have its own restaurant but, there are a number of nice places to eat very close by, some of which offer something free if you show them your room key. Rooms are large and clean. I would... More
