Stayed here for one night after working nearby, Checked in and the staff was very friendly, I even chatted with the Webster Chief Of Police as he was there working security....Nice guy for a cop. I was selected as the "guest of the day" and received free ice cream coupon at the local ice cream parlor (Note: the staff there... More

This is a nice location with plenty of activity around. However, for the dated facility and lack of amenities, the price is a bit high. To note, the hotel should add some lighting and a little renovation work to the hotel. Updates would be nice.

We took a weekend trip to Kemah and we have stayed at Boardwalk Inn before so we wanted to stay again. They had great beds and free wifi. We really like the parking garage that they had for guests. Really nice hotel stay.

This hotel is part of the Kemah Boardwalk, they have a separate section of the parking garage for guests and everything is within walking distance. Front desk staff were great! We were greeted as soon as we entered the lobby. I purchased the package with two all day ride passes and the staff kept it quiet just in case it... More

Checked in on the 21st and stayed until Friday morning. It was an awesome visit. The bed & the pillows was super comfortable. The room was very clean and spacious, parking was fantastic, close to everything. The staff was very helpful and accommodating to all of our questions. We did not have a premium room and were still pleasantly surprised.... More

Staff and service was great. Extremely convenient to all the restaurants and attractions. Covered parking was a perk and being close to the hotel was very convenient. Boardwalk Café has excellent beignets. Clean rooms.

The Kemah Boardwalk is the perfect place for a family vacation. It offers non-stop entertainment, great places to eat and the Boardwalk Inn is the perfect place to stay for all of this. All you have to do is walk out the door and the fun begins. The hotel itself is very nice and other than during the nightly concerts/movies... More

The little kids train runs past midnight blowing its horn every 30 seconds. Whose idea is that? Worst hotel pool for the price of rooms I have seen. Food is excellent at the many restaurants,staff is friendly, views are great, and right next to the boardwalk.
