While I enjoyed my stay at the Kemah Resort Inn, it wasn't even close to being worth the price I paid ($270 for one night). While comparisons with other properties are not always "fair," I must say this: Last year, I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and was on the 13th Floor, overlooking...

We had a great time at the Boardwalk Inn. Loved the plantation shutters. Would love to know where you got them from. WiFi would not work but that is our only complaint. Loved the fact that we could sit on the balcony and watch and hear the band.

The hotel was fantastic, and the room was perfect; it was located right in front of the stage, so we got to see and hear live music each night. It was very relaxing/soothing. This was the best get-away yet. In the future, I will always try to stay on the property. We parked our car on Saturday, and didn't move... More

Well it's right in the middle of the action and you can even get a room overlooking the band. We love this place although the prices can swing wildly depending on demand. We've stayed for as little as $99, and as high as $249, any higher and we opt for something a few blocks away.

Needed some alone time with just my husband. I looked into some of the nicer hotel resort locations in Galveston but they all required a 2 night stay. The Boardwalk in Kemah did not. We reserved a room for Saturday of that week. We arrived about 2 hours before check in and our room was already available. We got our... More

Small very cute hotel. It's right on the boardwalk, shops underneath, live band right outside your room on Friday and Saturday, good music, it was nice to be able to walk to everything. Right next to all the boardwalk restaurants and attractions. Very expensive for what you get. Rooms nice and clean, but no refrigerator, so taking leftover to your... More

The Boardwalk Inn is a great place to stay if you are in South Houston. It is right in the middle of all the action of Kemah, but our room was very quiet. The lobby is relaxing, there are plenty of very nice restaurants in walking distance, and the room was very comfortable. Each room has a balcony that overlooks... More
