We originally booked the Harbor House because we are the type of people who can't sleep the night before a vacation because we are all rattled with excitement, and the Harbor House was close enough to the cruise terminal that you could see the cruise ships when they were in port. So, that was all I had set my expectation...

We just spent 2 nights at Harbor House Hotel before a cruise on November 13 and it was great. Rooms were large and clean. Lady at the desk was very nice and helpful. There are 5 places to eat within walking distance, and when I say walking distance I mean very very close. I have arthritis in my knees and...

Hotel looks like a converted chic wearhouse. Dee at the front desk is a wonderful asset! The hotel looks onto the wharf and is attached to several cool restaurants as well as the tall ship, Elissa, which is a fun tour. Stayed two nights in off season for $99/night. Bkft was just good coffee and sweet rolls however.

We are pleased that you enjoyed your experience at Harbor House and Pier 21. As you mentioned, there's plenty to see and do at Pier 21 and several Pier 21 restaurants extend a complimentary item to our guests. We hope to see you again soon.

If you are in Galveston for a cruise, this is a super hotel. First off, the view is fantastic and you can see the ships coming in. The bed was beyond comfortable and the room is spacious. I would suggest leaving your car here and either walking or taking a taxi (if you have too much luggage) to the cruise...

We splurged on a night here before our cruise because each room has a wonderful view of the harbor. The room is large and beautifully appointed with great attention to detail. Bed was sublime! Staff was friendly, particularly, Front Desk Clerk Dee, who gave us great help to find the perfect breakfast spot. Guests get a discount at nearby restaurants....

The room was really clean and modern, a great place to stay in Galveston close to the wharf, the strand, fresh fish market, cruise terminals and charter boats. The beds are great with luxurious pillow top mattresses, I slept great.

My wife and I frequent Galveston Island several times a year and when we stay over we typically stay at the Tremont. Well this last summer we tried the Harbor House and found it to be an excellent hotel, great location and in easy walking distance to restaurants and the Strand area.

I'm a solo traveler and always fly in one day precruise. And since I don't rent a car, I try to find a hotel that has restaurant/shops within walking distance. Harbor House delivers!

Everything went smooth during checkin. The hotel looks like a marina hotel on the outside but completely modern on the inside. Nice choice of fixtures, spacious rooms, clean. Breakfast was small but expected. The only issue with breakfast is the selection of food. There was no bread for toast (Just bagels) and the oatmeal needed hot water or a microwave...
