Randy helped us several times during our stay. I just can't say enough good things about his pleasant, helpful demeanor and willingness to go out of his way to make our stay run smoothly. I must mention Chris, too, in the café. He was so polite and struck just the right balance between helpful and letting us enjoy a peaceful...

My Family enjoyed the vacation here. The staff was friendly and helpful. Plenty of things to do with the kids. The Hotel is clean and the rooms have great views. MG is close to attractions like Flight Museum, Sea Wolf Park and the Beach.

Nice hotel. Buffett meals made eating quick. Rooms were nice. Parking easy. Close to the beach but even closer to moody gardens. Make sure you go to the pyramids if you stay at this hotel. The outdoor pool was nice with a swim up adult section bar. We will stay again when in the area.

Moody Gardens offered great pricing, great service, great food and great people. Did I mention "Great?" We were greeted immediately, received friendly and fast service at the reception desk. We checked out our room, which was super clean. I am extremely picky when it comes to cleanliness. We went back downstairs for happy hour. Service was great, drinks awesome. We...

Nice place. Close to start/finish of Diva Half Marathon that my wife ran. Good size room, quiet at the end of the hall. We didn't get a Moody Garden Pyrimid view but did look toward the ocean in the distance. Mattress was a little softer than we're used to. Room service was out of desserts! Unusually fast elevators. Very friendly...

My wife and I were guests at Moody Gardens Hotel during the week of April 17. I was also there to attend a conference. The Hotel is very nice and is located on the bay side of the island.

Great celebration and the I Max Jerusalem movie was very appropriate. The pool is always great, and the Moody Gardens employees are superior -- at the desk, bell service, dining service, pool etc. The hotel buffet was superior as well. The animals to pet and the complementary Easter baskets were appreciated. The pianist at the buffet was wonderful.

While this property may not be on the beach, I personally preferred the location. The entire resort including the hotel and surrounding gardens are very well maintained. The décor is gorgeous. Everything is super clean and fresh. I didn't use the pool but it looked amazing. The best part of my stay - the bed! OMG...best bed ever, and I've...

This is a very nice hotel. Everyone here from the valet to the housekeeping staff has been exceptionally pleasant.
