We reached Harbor House Hotel late, at around 1:30 am on December 27. We had reserved two rooms. The front desk person was obviously not a happy camper, but checked us in and gave us an additional roller bed for our daughter. It was dark and we did not have a clue what the hotel or rooms looked like—my son...

Well situated on wharf, just off the Strand. Easy access. Limited parking (if busy). Park and walk everywhere is my advice. Rooms are simple. Beds were comfy. Rooms poorly lit and were dim after sunset. Good amenities (microwave/fridge/coffee maker). Bathroom with large, excellent shower. The included continental breakfast was just what you'd expect...carbohydrate festival. Dining area sparse. Staff was pleasant...

We stayed one night before our cruise and the lady at the front desk was super nice and upgraded us to a suite and my kids were so excited! It looked over the water and the room itself was spacious and clean! The local restaurants were nice but expensive! You do get a free continental breakfast but its muffins and...

For the money it was total worth it. Very nice room. The finish of the hotel is different which gives it a uniqueness...industrial. The Harbour area is very beautiful to walk around. Water pressure in the shower was abit low though.

I wanted very much to like this hotel because of the reviews but was sadly disappointed. Didn't seem like the room was cleaned. The toiletries were replenished but the trash can wasn't empty and the bathroom had old towel and the was very dark. We had a long drive and was tired. But couldn't really unpack in the dark, so...

I admit, I was underwhelmed when we pulled up. But I was on a charter bus and it was dark, and first impressions can be misleading. Our rooms were huge, the bed comfortable, it is close to some nice restaurants and the strand. The bathroom is great....loved the shower. Several light fixtures in room were out. No restaurant onsite, however,...

This is my second stay at the Harbor House in Galveston, Texas. Both visits were good. The staff is friendly. The rooms are large and contemporary. There are two restaurants on the first floor that are not affiliated with the Hotel but offer a free desert if you are staying at the Harbor House. The two windows are not large...

Harbor House, seems a bit shabby on the outside but somehow that gives it an atmosphere that says GALVESTON!, yes, in caps. Our room was clean and modern. Rooms provide a look out over the bay where workboats, barges, and even cruise boats pass by for your serine enjoyment. I only wish there was a balcony. Right on Pier 21,...

Spent 2 nights here to celebrate our anniversary and my friends' birthday. Could not have picked a better location convenient to the Strand and 3 great restaurants outside the door of the hotel. Wonderfully comfortable beds, an awesome bathroom, quiet and the ocean view right outside the window. Will definitely stay here again!!
