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

I have always wanted to go to the Kemah Boardwalk and stay at the Boardwalk Inn.. Everybody was great!! I love my car and they had private parking for my car so it was safe. The room was nice and the bed was great. They had a live band and I really loved watching the sail boats. Went swimming in... 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.

Took my entire family for a weekend getaway and had a wonderful stay at this very comfy and perfectly located hotel. We had a baby with us so being in the center of all the attractions made it so easy for us to get out and enjoy the area on foot - and not be far from our home away... More

From our arrival to our departure, we received pleasant & efficient care from every member of the staff. When we arrived late the first night, I had made a mistake booking my dates & we arrived a day before our reservation. This was no problem at the Boardwalk Inn! They quickly found me a beautiful room. Although they did not... More

Last minute trip booked with friends (2 adults and 3 kids). Cute accommodation with friendly and helpful staff (shout out to Mary!). Rooms were very clean and has a big mini fridge in rooms.

I can't believe this place has as many positive reviews as it does. The staff was extremely rude upon arrival and the entire hotel had some awful musky smell. They could not find my reservation at first, which prompted them to become even grouchier. Then, as we head to our room, there are children playing in the hallway on air... More

We absolutely loved this hotel. My husband and I decided we needed a night to our selves and decided the boardwalk inn was the right place. We were completely correct. The rooms are spacious, clean, have a private balcony to look over the boardwalk and marina. The check in agent was very polite and professional. There was only one thing... More

I enjoyed my stay at the Kemah Boardwalk Inn. The beds and pillows were of good quality and the staff were very accommodating. The air conditioning kept my room sufficiently cool (I like it really cold) and the shower had a well-pressured, hot stream. This is especially a great location if you have kids and are visiting the Boardwalk. Wi-Fi... More
