My wife, our 4-year-old son and I vacationed for 3 days in Moody Gardens Hotel. While it's not the cheapest hotel on Galveston island, we have some beautiful lifetimes memories from staying here. The room service menu accommodated a very picky boy's tastes as well as my wife's multiple food allergies. The king bed, Oh That Mattress...to lay on the...

We wanted a little getaway, but not during the busy Spring Break week. We chose a package during the week after break, and loved the quiet. The true highlight of our time at this lovely hotel, was the staff: Diana, at the front desk, was the shining star. She truly acted more like a concierge. Thank you, Diana!! She and...

We only stayed one night to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday. Fun at the pool with swim up bar but a little crowded for Spring Break. Shearns Restaurant was very nice and wait staff was excellent. The room was nice but the best part was the cleaning staff!! I left a family heirloom ring and didn't realize where I left...

We had about 30 rooms for guests traveling from other parts of the country. Everyone raved about the hotel accommodations, the hospitality of staff, the hotel amenities/attractions and the wonderful spirits offered by the main lobby bar and great food and atmosphere at Cafe in the Park! We were super pleased with our decision to accommodate our guests at Moody...

The Cafe in the Park always has excellent food and service. If Jessy is your waiter you are very fortunate! He's terrific. My kids love the grilled fish on the children's menu so much they sometimes get two dinners, and we don't mind because the price is reasonable and it's such a healthy meal. Great drinks from the bar, and...

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...
