Was a good value for one night stay with free shuttle to the Carnival/Royal Caribbean cruise ports. The only down side is the continental breakfast could be much better. However, there is a nice casual restaurant on the property!

The hotel is great to stay in before a cruise and you can leave your car there while you are gone, that is a plus. Everyone is friendly. The rates are higher because of the shuttle that takes you to the port and picks you up from the port when you return!

I have stayed at this location a few times for pre-cruise stay and parking shuttle. The hotel is about average. The breakfast is adequate. The staff is friendly and efficient. Pool and mini golf fun for kids. The parking and shuttle to and from cruise port is very good.

We love this hotel when we cruise. It is the perfect addition to our cruise. We love the newly renovated rooms. They are clean with great upgraded linen. Bed is super comfy. The easy of getting to the port as well as leaving our car here until we get back from the cruise are a great plus. From the manager... More

We were in Galveston for a convention and were looking for a nice hotel with fair prices and we found the Inn at the Waterpark. We knew we had made a great choice right away because the check-in staff was so helpful and friendly. This is an older hotel so we were expecting the rooms to be larger than the... More

Very nice quiet hotel...great breakfast. Plenty parking spaces and not to far from the beach...Situated near plenty eateries and stores for shopping. I will stay here anytime. Rooms were extra clean and roomy.

We came to Galveston one day before my in-laws so we needed to get a hotel room for one night. It was a little pricy for one night $125, the room was clean but nothing fancy about it. The water would go from scorching hot to cold every few minutes so the shower was terrible. I realized a few hours... More

Not a bad stay if your looking for a place to rest your head near Moody Gardens or Schlitterbahn. The free breakfast had a few edible items, bananas, pancakes, muffins, etc. The coffee was awful. The parking was a super tight fit, beware of door dings. Though not the best, it may be the best value. We will stay here... More

I stayed here the second weekend of September, my kids loved that there was a putt putt at the hotel and they really enjoyed the pool! It was very quiet and the rooms are clean it's also a short drive to the beach and right around the corner from Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn. Overall I would definitely recommend staying here...

I gave this hotel an average rating because thats what it is, average. We stayed here for two nights with two kids. The hotel is older but it was clean.

“Try to pick the upper rooms if given a choice. They are quieter. Parking is a little tight for larger vehicles.”

“If you want a peaceful vacation during the summertime, choose the exterior rooms top floor.”
  • Windows with no blinds in the eating and sleeping area
  • Kitchen shelves in the eating area
  • Wasn't sure about the age of the carpet so I wore slippers for my entire stay.
  • Toilet
  • Newly renovated bathroom and it was exceptionally clean.
  • The flat screen television and the vanity area
  • The bedroom area. Mattresses were too soft
  • This is the separate eating area of the room with the microwave and fridge
