The Moody Gardens Hotel is at the heart of a sprawling property featuring lush gardens and state-of-the-art attractions, including pyramids housing an aquarium and a living rain forest, a golf course and a 3-D theater. In addition to an indoor pool, the hotel has a heated outdoor pool featuring a swim-up bar and Jacuzzi. 

On-site dining options range from the AAA 4-Diamond award-winning Shearn's steakhouse, to the whimsically designed Café in the Park. Guests can also take libations amidst waterfalls and ponds with exotic fish at the lobby bar.

Spacious guest rooms have panoramic views of the pyramids and Galveston Bay, featuring one king or two queen size beds. All accommodations include complimentary Wi-Fi and minifridges.

The Spa at Moody Gardens offers skin and nail treatments, hair and makeup and a variety of massages. In the fitness center, guests can utilize a jogging track as well as a lap pool. Free self-parking and a shuttle make visiting every corner of the 242-acre resort easy. Moody Gardens is close to the beach, Strand historic district and cruise ship terminal.

One of my favorite places to stay in Galveston. Clean and fun hotel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Lots of stuff to do.

My only complaint was that I had to check out early (5am) on Sunday and needed to change my form of payment. I had to wait at the desk for 20 minutes and there was not a staff member to help me. I was almost late getting to my flight in Houston. Otherwise great place to stay!
