Excellent service by all staff going above and beyond to take care of their customers, but hotel and its rooms need some updating so please consider renovating soon.

Save yourself the trouble. Do not stay at Moody Gardens. MG is surrounded by run down areas. Check in took about 2 hours and my room was not ready until 6pm. Refrigerator didn’t work. Not enough bed linen or towels. No turnover service in the room for the entirety 5 day stay. Staff was rude many times. Prices for amenities was exorbitant. Restaurant food expensive and mediocre. Pool was good, but towels never available. Took forever to get poolside service. I do not recommend this hotel. Stay elsewhere and visit Moody Gardens Aquarium etc, but prices are outrageous for this, and again, it is mediocre. Stay Away!!!
