Me and my husband stayed at the Harbor House on Wednesday may 10, 2017 and we loved the people there, from Ms. Dee the wonderful lady at the front desk to the wonderful bartenders and staff at the restaurant the is attached to it.We will definitely be going back for a longer stay.

This hotel is a charming hotel right next to the cruise pier. The decor is outstanding and unique. The rooms are a good size and very comfortable and the breakfast buffet had tons of choices like oatmeal, pastries, yogurts, fruit, juices and coffee. We loved watching our cruise ship sail right by our window and the restaurants nearby were great...

Our hugely spacious, modern industrial look room with a very comfortable king bed over looked the dock and cruise ships. Excellent restaurant selection very close by and comfortable walking distance to the historic district. Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

This hotel is a little dated but the rooms are nice and it is a perfectly good place to stay while in Galveston. There are decent restaurants and bars in the area on the pier and is within walking distance of downtown. If you need a place to stay before your cruise it is perfect. There are parking garages close...

Nice awaking to a cruise ship outside our windows. It was really different and a treat. The atmosphere was what we were looking for in Galveston. It really seemed authentic to the area. The hotel has actual harbor history as well as the museum across the walking pier. The restaurant there was great and has great drinks just for chilling...

We spent a weekend at the Harbor House. The room they gave us was awesome. Top floor over looking the bay. Very quiet and very large. The location is great, you can walk almost anywhere in the strand area. The only negative is the gentleman that checked us in was not that friendly and did not tell us that we...

Thank you for choosing Harbor House for your weeklong stay in Galveston. It sounds like you had an amazing week of sightseeing and events. We appreciate you choosing our hotel and we hope to see you again soon.

Rooms are nice, and big. Staff were friendly. However there is little sound proofing between the rooms. The rooms also are above two restaurants with the odd numbered rooms on the east side above noisy kitchen extractor fan outlets. They turn off at night but are pretty loud in the day. Breakfast is a basic affair served on plastic plates,...
