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!!

Upon check out I asked for a feedback form. There was not one. Our room on dec 17 totaled 300$ for one night. Not sure why booking through hotel was so much more expensive than internet prices noticed later! However, while the rooms are spacious and well decorated, they need to improve a lot on amenities. The continental breakfast was...

The staff were so friendly and helpful. The room was exceptionally clean and very large. Great view of the harbor, quiet. We ate at Nono Tony's and when we told our server we were staying next door we were treated to the most awesome beignets! My only negative comment would be lack of good lighting in the room.

The BED was soooo comfy! The Room was more than I expected since it was an old Cannery... They use light washed wood on ceilings, keeping the old rustic metal to make you feel it was still the Cannery.. Only one negative comment is the complimentary breakfast was not up to expectations- Just below par: I would think with the...

Thank you for the kind review on Harbor House. The hotel was built in the 1990s on the site of an old steamship terminal. We love that you appreciated how it suits the location. We hope to see you again soon. We'll pass along your comments on breakfast.

We had an amazing time in Galveston, Texas. We arrived one day early prior to boarding our cruise ship.
