We are thrilled you "loved" your stay at Harbor House. And, we love you saw dolphins from your hotel window. What an added treat. We hope to see you soon.

We love to stay here - however whomever came up with the not so brilliant idea of non see through glass dividing the bathroom/room was a total bonehead. When someone uses the restroom during the night it wakes the others in the room.. otherwise it’s an enjoyable place to stay.

I have stayed here many times when leaving out on a cruise in Galveston. Less than a block away and they will allow you to leave your car parked there for the cruise. Nice rooms and a great view! Close to restaurants.

When I stayed you are able to park your car there for a fee. You prepay and they give you a tag to hang in your car letting everyone know that you are parking legally.

We stayed two and a half days and there was plenty to do. Shops, restaurants, interesting museums, and 1-2 hour cruises are all within walking distance.

Agree with other comments, Typical standard continental breakfast. Wait Staff did a great job of keep it fresh and stocked. We just needed enough to get us on the cruise. Did not have a vehicle, but the parking lot was very large... no knowledge of parking cost.

Does the hotel provide cribs?
I would call to ask. I would also reserve the crib with the room just to make sure. tel:409-763-3321

"Don't count on a good breakfast. This is continental at its most basic."
"Ask for a view of the harbor"
"I believe all rooms are good, we only asked for non-smoking and our room was perfect"
"Ask for water view."
"I would recommend a room that looks out towards the water, however that is a personal preference. 3rd floor was a great view."
