The Harbor House was a great place to stay before our cruise. The location was perfect – easy walking distance to restaurants, and it was fun to watch our ship coming into port. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. There was a mini-refrigerator and bottled water. The bathroom is very modern - shower only (no tub) and...

We stayed here again after our cruise. Quick walk to the hotel from the cruise port. Dee at the front desk is always the best. She is always happy and such a kind heart! Room was clean and ready. They brought the fruit back for breakfast so that was nice too. We will stay here again without question if we...

We love this little place on the harbor. Close to the Strand. Easy to walk places for food and drink. Dee at the front desk is top of the line in customer service. She knows about all the hot spots to check out. We look forward to our next visit.

A friend and I stayed here last weekend during the Wicked Wine Run and we couldn't be happier with our stay. Our room was immaculate and the hotel seemed as though it's recently updated. Dee, the wonderful host at the front desk was amazing! She answered any questions we had and even called to find a place for us at...

We were not fond of the heavy traffic on the Seawall in Galveston so we booked a hotel near The Strand area. It was great. Dee the young lady at the desk was happy and helpful. There are only 40 rooms in the hotel so you were not bumping into people. The rooms were clean and spacious and we could...

Dee, the front desk receptionist, was so helpful and nice. After we got to the room the cleaning staff was right there to ask if we need anything. It was a very clean, pretty room. We enjoyed it a lot.

I stayed here on a two day business trip to Galveston. The rooms are nice and clean. The hotel is in a great location. The beds are even really comfortable. Now what makes this hotel below average for the price is the fact that the guy at guest services wasn't very welcoming and inviting. On my second night while relaxing...

We enjoy staying at the Harbor House whenever we visit Galveston. We go there several times a year. One of the main reasons we stay at Harbor House is the friendly people like Dee.
