Fun way to spend the day hanging out in the lazy rivers or riding the water rides. Be sure and wear water shoes for the pavement gets awful hot and the lines tend to be long.

So much fun. Free parking. Nice and helpful employees. Great lazy/torrent river... Just make sure you wear sunscreen! It takes just a few minutes to put on and saves yourself a headache (or should I say "bodyache") later on.More

We stayed across the street at Moody Gardens. We took the pool towels from there. They likely don't like that (the hotel) , but we brought them back so no,harm no foul.

Response from Brooke I | Reviewed this property |
The lockers are very small, take as little and as few items inside as possible if you intend on renting a locker. I do not recall the exact amount to rent one but I remember thinking it was a little steep.
