We stayed at Moody Gardens for a gymnastics competition and I'm glad we did. Great experience. I wish they had more restaurants on site, but overall, the restaurant we did visit for every meal was good and gave us enough choices to satisfy our family....More

Dear L S,
Thank you for the great review of Moody Gardens Hotel. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, the pool and the food at Café in the Park. It’s rewarding to hear that our Front Desk team took care of...More
The 3D and 4D attractions (Sponge Bob SubPants, and Ice Age) are short (15 minutes), low tech, obsolete and way overpriced. They need to update the graphics and movies.One day, the housekeeping people skipped making up and cleaning our room. We mistakenly left behind a...More

A Moody Membership will get you into all of the regular attractions (Rainforest Pyramid, Aquarium Pyramid, Discovery Museum, SpongeBob Sub Pants Adventure, Colonel Paddlewheel Boat, Ropes Course, 3D Films, 4D Films; then seasonal attractions when they are open, Dinos Alive, Palm Beach, Festival of Lights, Iceland).The family membership is good for up to 5 people so your 6th person would have to be at the regular rate ... unless you are including children 3 & younger (anyone 47 months or younger are free); however, if you are planning to go to the attractions 2 or more days then the membership is definitely the way to go. The Moody Membership has many perks, some include discounts at the Moody Gardens Hotel, the Spa at the hotel, the restaurants and gift shops; the membership activated the date of purchase for one full year, so I would wait to purchase it until you on property.
Schiltterbahn is not affiliated with Moody Gardens so no discounts for individual tickets are available. The hotel does offer a Schiltterbahn Couples or Family package; the package includes 2 adult tickets with the Couples package or 2 adult & 2 childrens tickets with the Family package, plus the room for the night and valet parking. Unfortunately, room discounts cannot be doubled so you would not be able to get the Schiltterbahn package plus the Moody Member rate for the same night's stay.

Moody Gardens Hotel is not near the Cruise Terminal. The view of the pyramids is nice but we don't know about a view of the Coast. I would recommend you stay in a Hotel closer in to Galveston and ask for a Beach View. They are closer to restaurants, the Strand and the Terminal. There is long term parking at the Cruise Terminal and you won't have to go so far.
