Moody is severly understaffed right now. Long waits on transportation, ran out of towels, pool area was dirty and cluttered. Not up to their normal standards. My guest just decided to stay on the boat and did nothing at Moody Gardens.

There was a 22 mph prevailing wind and they put us on the south side of the marina instead of on the north side so that we could back into the wind when docking. There were only 3 boats there that night and 2 of us were on the south side. It looked like a 3 ring circus there. Whoever does the booking should know things like this. This was our first time staying there.
