I booked on Tripadvisor and somehow they didn't give the Harbor House my phone number. We got to the hotel and they had to move us to another hotel as something happened to some rooms. The hotel they moved us to was great but we really wanted to stay at the pier. They couldn't call us since they didn't have...

What an amazing room! The staff was delightful (Dee, I'm looking at you!) and made us feel like part of a family instead of just patrons at a hotel. A gorgeous view, and extremely comfortable beds. Without a doubt we will be staying here again!

I've stayed in Galveston probably a dozen times over the years with my family. This trip was a bachelorette weekend with my cousin. When I was looking for a hotel, I wanted something unique, historical, local, and non-chain hotel, that was still "reasonably" priced. Harbor House was it! We enjoyed the eclectic decor, smallness (fewer guests in the hotel), and...

Harbor House was a great choice for experiencing a different side of Galveston. Our hotel window provided a bird's eye view of ships coming and going, dolphins galore, birds too numerous to count, and an awesome thunderstorm! The hotel was clean and quiet. The comfortable bed insured a good night's sleep. Breakfast was free and included pastries, cereal, and coffee....

I was little nervous staying so close to harbor and close proximity to restaurants however our stay was very peaceful and quiet ! Room was beautifully decorated and beds are very comfy. This hotel has a flair of European boutique hotel. I certainly be back.

We had room 201, a corner suite for three of us that worked out nicely. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was very nice with plenty of everything. The bed was the most comfortable I've had outside my home. But the best thing was waking up in morning and watching the Dolphins chase and play with each...

We recently stayed at the Harbor House and were really impressed. The room was extra large and very accommodating. The bathroom was also big and easy to maneuver. The king bed, while a little firm, was comfortable. We were pleased with the front desk and service provided. It is in an ideal location on the harbor, one block off the...

We stay in Galveston 5-6 times a year. This hotel is affiliated with the Wyndham group although when making reservations it is not clear. It is a small hotel located at Pier 21. They serve a continental breakfast but do not have a restaurant. There are several restaurants located within the Pier area. The rooms are quiet and clean. The...

I booked the last minute so it cost me $100 dollars. It's a nice hotel with view and location. Easy walk to Strand! They charge $10 bucks for parking each day which I wasn't told til the next morning with a receipt under the door. I'm glad I only stayed one day here. I would much rather stay at The...
