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

My 16 year old granddaughter stayed at the inn right on the boardwalk in May of this year. Our double room was extremely expensive, certainly more than what I usually pay for a hotel,i always speak to a manager upon making reservations if I feel price of room is not comparable to other hotels in same area.

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

We stayed one night and had a great time on the boardwalk. Hotel is very nice however the room we were in was directly across from the service area used by housekeeping and room service.
