A
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We have stayed at All the finer Hotels on Galveston Island. Moody Gardens is by far the Nicest, cleanest and updated Hotel on the island. We were in town meeting with a Real Estate agent and decided to give Moody Gardens a try since we had never stayed there. We were Pleasantly Surprised. This Hotel was Spotless and the staff was more than friendly and seemed Happy to be there.
Cons:We couldn't stay longer. This Hotel is Not on the beach so that might be a drawback for some. It does however have the waterpark which is the bomb for kids.
A
6.0 Okay
Pros:Air went out the 1st night and didn't have hot water the next morning.
Cons:Room issues and inflated prices
S
6.5 Okay
Pros:The room decor and comfort was nice. What followed was distressing......
Cons:My purse was stolent in front of the reception desk. I spoke out openly in the lobby stating, " My purse was stolen help!" No one came to help. I went to the reception desk and said the same thing, described the purse to the receptionist at the checkin desk, and she asked me what i wanted her to do. Shocked, I went to the bell desk and repeated that my purse had been stolen asking if they'd seen anything. The woman at that desk didn't get up or so much as ask me a question. A friend and I apprehended the thief who'd stolen my purse and was awaiting her car in vallet. Yes she was a hotel guest. Mr. Davilla from Security arrived, took her license plate and said he'd call the police. He was the only one who stepped in to help us. My children were scared watching this all unfold. Especially my little boy who tried to help me spot the person who took my purse as I didn't get any assistance from Hotel personal for several minutes. We were left to our own defenses.

9.7 Wonderful
Pros:let just say what's not to like, this place was a blast
Cons:No microwave was the only thing
P
8.3 Very good
Pros:The room was immaculate, fresh and updated. The lobby, cafe and upstairs lounge were also comfortable and well furnished. The grounds were beautifully manicured. We were able to come and go to the convention center without having to go outside. The tour through the Rain Forest was intriguing. Thank you for the efficient shuttle service. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Cons:The time it took to check-in was longer than average. The cafe waitress at breakfast was unacceptably slow to attend. Thankfully a bus boy stopped at our table to ask if we'd been helped, then went to get someone to get us menus. Our meals arrived barely warm. We had to ask for water during the meal also. The cafe service did not match the luxury of the rest of our stay.
