Wonderful location - close to historic downtown, restaurants, working waterfront. The room was large and we'll laid out, with lots of storage space. Comfortable seating. Nice work area. No tub but huge shower. Clean when we arrived but not serviced while we were out all day. The front desk apologized and quickly brought fresh towels and more coffee. The parking...

We overlooked the water and could see boats going in and out of harbor. There are several lunch/dinner restaurants next to hotel. We dined at Fisherman's Wharf and it was GREAT! We were in walking distance to Starbucks, but not close enough to walk to the shopping area. We ended up driving there, but it was worth it. The downtown...

The rooms are spacious, clean, and have a decent view. I wanted a decent hotel close to the port and was pleased with extras (vanity kit, large V and bed)! I will definitely stay here again for our cruise in July.

I decided to treat myself to a bit of luxury and I paid $339 (including taxes) to stay in this hotel one night before a cruise. First, the hotel is in a great location, walking distance to restaurants, shops, waterfront and I even walked to the cruise port in less than five minutes. I had a long day and the...

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay. Harbor House is a limited service hotel and does not offer room service. But, the location at Pier 21 offers four restaurants within steps of the hotel. We hope you'll consider giving one of our sister properties a try if you are looking for room service and additional amenities.

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.

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....
