5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW via mobile

We were surprised at how clean, welcoming, and quaint this relatively new hotel was. We just were amazed at how comfortable this hotel was. We can see this hotel getting noisy during a large event but our experience was quiet and restful. Ask for a "Bayside" room for an extra peaceful experience. We will definitely return.

Perfect location, excellent customer service. Very cute room with balcony to the fountain. Every time we were outside and reenter to the hotel it was like an aroma therapy session, an excellent smell awake your senses. Very pleasant. All you need is around in just few steps. Restaurants, ice cream, candies, toys, clothes, souvenirs. Every kind of stores and restaurants.... More

This hotel is small but really beautifully decorated. The rooms are very cozy and the beds are very comfortable. We had a waterfront room and it was really pretty, the hotel is right on the boardwalk so you can walk to everything.

My only complaints are at this price point some type of breakfast could be offered. The cafe next door was very good but also a bit pricy. Not a deal breaker but the Boardwalk Inn would be higher on my return list if breakfast were an option. Overall, this was a great stay.

The Priority Seating was a scam to get us to go to a Landrys restaurant. We called the front desk an hour before and then waited 45 minutes at Saltgrass. Skimp on the towels and soap. Way too expensive considering amenities. Should consider refrigerator and microwave....especially considering the location.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your recent review of our property. We have seven wonderful Landry variety restaurants on the Boardwalk, all provide our hotel with Priority seating for our hotel guests, priority seating is best available time when we call in a guest reservation, unfortunately from time to time our restaurants have a long wait time for walk up...

The room was better than expected and located in close proximity to a variety of restaurants and activities for everyone. The location was close enough to NASA, Galveston and Houston to go to any of the three for a quick day trip and then come back to the Boardwalk for a great evening.

Boardwalk Inn is a very, very nice hotel. The view and restaurants are excellent. Very quiet hotel, not good for families with children. They have rules about loud noise, which was funny because the music from the restaurants across the way will keep you up until midnight!!! The walls and floors are very thin, so you can hear the conversation... More
