Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

There was a movie theatre just a short drive from the Inn . It was a good place to relax in the A/C after a long day in the heat.

Great value for money

I found the Inn at the Waterpark to be very clean and spaceous. There was a separate dining area with fridge and microwave and the room had 2 full beds, enough for a whole family. It was well priced compared with some of the other hotels in Galveston. The only downfall was that it is not that close to the restaurants and so you would deffinately need transportation.

Very close to Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn and so is a great location also for people who have conferences at Moody Gardens as it is only a short walk away.

Good resting spot

You could not do better for a couple of days at the waterpark or Moody Gardens. For less than half the price of upscale hotels, this place is clean, quiet and roomy.

Very family friendly

The Inn at the Waterpark was a nice, comfortable stay. This spot is perfect for the family trip to the waterpark that is just across the street. The rooms are nice and spacious and section like a small apartment. I will most definitely be returning with friends and family.

Wonderful place to stay

The room was wonderfully spacious. The staff responded to all our requests within minutes of calling. The location is great for those visiting Moody Gardens and/or the Galveston Schlitterbahn. We enjoyed the continental breakfast each day, had picnics at the pool, and played miniature golf in the evening. We did not have internet connection in our room, but much of the locals still do not have internet to their homes, so this was no surprise. Great family vacation spot.

Great room for the price!

Moody Gardens was booked so we booked here and was not disappointed. Rooms we're clean and the breakfast was very good. Will definitely stay here again.

Nice size room

This is an older hotel, but for the money, it's a good deal. The separate room from the main sleeping area was definitely a plus. We didn't feel crammed into the room. The free breakfast was actually more than we expected. Not just the usual muffin/cereal. Good coffee, nice eating area with a large plasma tv. The attendant was also very nice. Great location - near Moody Gardens and Schillterbahn.
