I got married in Galveston in March, and my husband and I booked a suite at this property for our wedding weekend. We liked that it was a small hotel compared to most on the Island. The room was beautiful and spacious, with modern, comfortable furniture and a great view of the harbor. It had a separate bedroom and even had a small dining area in the living room. Since we had a lot to do over the weekend, we didn't get a chance to take advantage of the complimentary appetizer or dessert at the restaurants nearby. We agree with some of the other reviews about the very odd light switches - they were difficult to figure out which switch worked with which lights! The continental breakfast left a lot to be desired as well - it was really disappointing. Parking was adequate and fairly secure as well, and we liked having the option of using amenities at their partner properties, where we had family staying.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and thought that it was an excellent value for the amenities and service. We would definitely recommend it for anyone who wants to be close to many local restaurant, the water and within walking distance to The Strand district.
Congratulations on your marriage and thank you for choosing Harbor House. We appreciate your insight on your stay and we hope that you come back soon. It is a great location!
We have stayed here quit a few times over the years. It is a great location, right on the Galveston Harbor. They have a great Dolphin watch boat docked in their private marina. Plus we on occasion sail our boat down for a couple days and stay at the marina. It is a great spot!! The hotel is an easy walking distance from "The Strand" and lots of great places to eat and shop. They also have a "Jackup rig museum" next door and the 1900 Hurricane museum and the Alisa is right there!! They do not have room service but have a simple continental breakfast... The rooms are clean and very comfy.. It is a boutique hotel with no valet or bellman or room service, You do get a great view of a working harbor and boats going by and at night the welding on the rigs they are building or repairing is like fireworks... This place is beyond any doubt my favorite place to stay on the island!!
Thank you for the glowing review of the Harbor House, we are thrilled that you consider us your "favorite place to stay on the island." We appreciate your feedback and your comments on the many sights to see and places to go just within walking distance. We hope to see you again.
Enjoyed a weekend stay here at Harbor House. We were greeted by a warm and friendly front desk woman. The room was very clean and seemed fresh. Bed linens were comfortable and nice. Tiled floor with area rug. Plank ceiling open with bare pipes overhead. Contemporary mixed with rustic harbor feel. Bath and Body products in the bathroom, tile shower, glass doors, stylish nickel fixtures and sink bowl. Great view of the Bay Area day or night. Woke up to a giant cruise ship parked across the way. It had come in during the late evening. Convenient to walk to Willie G for a drink on the bay side patio and Olympia for dinner on the bay. Continental breakfast in the morning complimentary. Pricey. No pool but can use pool in a different hotel closer to beach. Nice stay. Recommend.
Thank you for the wonderful review of the Harbor House, we have recently renovated the property and love to hear that you were impressed. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return again in the future.
Stayed here on a recent visit to Galveston. Great location of you want to be near the historic area and the cruise ship dock. Hotel was clean, and quite. Breakfast was good, typical bagels, toast, yogurt,etc. nothing hot, but adequate. My main complaint is the light switches. They are HORRIBLE!!! They have some type of touch control pads that control all the lights in the whole room. I went to take a shower I could not get the lights to come up to only a dim level. Than I touched another pad and they went totally off and there seemed to be some type of delay feature before I could get one light to come on. Was never able to get the light in the showered area to ever come on. They need to change this design
Thank you for the feedback on your stay at Harbor House. We are so sorry that you had an issue with the lights. Despite that issue, we hope that you enjoyed your stay and the area.
