Brenham, Texas22 contributions4 helpful votes
Check-in is stated at 4:00 PM. Long, long, long story - the official review was sent to the property directly. I booked a Jr. Suite and an additional room to accommodate 3 adults and 4 children - varying sleep schedules. I was not able to get into the Jr. Suite until after 6 and the 2nd room until after 7. Little after 4 don't you think? Furniture in Jr. Suite was.... yucky. Stains and peeling varnish from the end tables, furniture stained, pull out sofa springs under a thin cover. As I stated - the official review went to Moody directly, but heads up people - based on my experience - you need to lower your expectations.

I really had a fantastic couples getaway at the Moody Gardens! I would definitely recommend for couples looking to have a fun and relaxing getaway. It was my first visit to the area so Donnique really was a godsend with her very helpful food and attraction recommendations! Every food place she recommended was delicious.

My friends and I would like to thank Donnique and the Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa and Convention center for a great time! We came for a little girls trip to Texas and really enjoyed the recommendations Donnique was able to give us as well. Overall, the staff was friendly, the rooms were clean as well as the pool area. The resort and property was well kept and we felt really taken care of. Such a great time!

Hotel was really busy. Room seemed like it wasn't clean. The shower curtain and tub had hairs. Airvents were filthy. They dont have any sanitizing cleaning supplies even though their website says they do if requested. Not many hotel workers wearing masks, or guests for that matter. Pool was busy with people, that would leave and take hotel towels with them. The pool gate is broken so anyone can get in, and seemed like alot of them weren't hotel guests. Gardens were infested with mosquitos, you can't take a walk without being bit. The crowd seemed like the same crowd at a holiday inn or La Quinta 😁 so might as well save your money and stay at a motel instead of this "resort". The San Luis resort is way better.

Dear sofi611, We are sorry to hear you did not have a pleasant stay here at Moody Gardens. We have been very busy here and wish you would have had a better experience. The mosquitoes are terrible this year and we try to keep them under control with different methods. We do not spray here at Moody Gardens because if you kill one insect, you kill them all including butterfly’s and other non-evasive insects. As for the guests we have, we are a family resort and we tend to have large groups come to enjoy our facilities. We do not allow non-guests to use the pool, but unfortunately, sometimes some of the locals do end up here. Our number one priority is the health and safety of our hotel guests and employees. All of our employees were a mask while in the public spaces without exception. We do not require our guests to wear them unless the feel they would like to. We follow all the mandates of the State of Texas. We have sanitation stations throughout the hotel with sanitizer available. We also have masks available for anyone who would like them. We do everything we can to keep our guests safe and secure. We spray all rooms upon checkout with a sanitizer to make sure we are killing all bacteria. We do not have cleaning chemicals available to guest however. I truly hope you give Moody Gardens another chance in the future. I know you would not be disappointed. Leon Garrison General Manager
