Definitely would come back. Clean, roomy & comfy rooms, nice little extras: mouthwash, mini vanity kits. Decent mini continental breakfast. Good value & within 3 blocks from the carnival port. Need to book early

Large rooms, good location, nice bath, terrible lighting in the room. Comfortable bed, good TV, really terrible lighting in the room. Located over the Olympia restaurant it is very convenient to downtown and you can walk to the Ocean Rig museum. All rooms look out on water.

Location is perfect - close to shopping, museums, dolphin watching boat and harbor tours. The Olympia Grille had great food, good service and you can watch the boats silently glide by. I had a room with 2 queen beds. The rooms are large and clean. My view overlooking the dolphin boat pier and Elissa mast was ok. There was a...

I was running Galveston half marathon and Needed an overnight stop. The Tremont was fully booked so we ended up at this place since I wanted to walk to the downtown start. They then moved start to the beach so I had to drive. Nice big room with ok facilities . At this price point $225 we would expect more...

We hope you had a great race and appreciate your insight regarding your stay. Guests typically choose our hotel because of its great location, close to The Strand at Pier 21. In this case, the hotel's location didn't work out for this race. Despite that, we hope you enjoyed your stay in Galveston.

If you are cruising out of Galveston this hotel is located fairly close to Pier 1 but a longer walk to Pier 2 where the Disney Wonder docks. We reserved a handicapped access room so there was a lot of space. We arrived rather late and had to wrestle our luggage up the ramp from the parking behind the hotel....

We stayed here in the past so we decided to stay here before our cruise again. It is such a short walk to the cruise port. The guy at check-in wasn't the friendliest (7:30pm sat night Jan 7) but he wasn't rude. No small talk just interrupted him watching TV.  The room was spacious and decently clean. There were some...

I picked this hotel because of the location near the cruise ships. The area is nice, lots of places for dinner. The walk to RC ship is just under half a mile. It stormed the morning and we ended up watching the radar for a break in weather. When it came we were out and at the ship in about...

My husband and I stayed at the Harbor House prior to a 7 day cruise. The location is fabulous! We could even see our cruise ship coming in to port the next morning from our window! Great restaurants nearby, comfy bed, and a clean spacious room. The phone had been pulled out of the wall apparently by the previous guests...

We booked two rooms here on Christmas night, before boarding our cruise ship. I chose this hotel because it is within walking distance (or free shuttle ride) to the cruise terminal. The only trick with that is that the free parking is at the Hotel Galvez, located across town. To park for the week at the Harbor House, you pay...
