I stayed at the Boardwalk inn for 2 nights on business trip. The room was nice and the hotel is decorated nicely (nautical theme). It is definitely an older hotel, but it has been kept up very nicely. The bed was comfortable and the view from my room was great. I would return if visiting the area again. I saw... More

Checked in on Wednesday night for 2 nights on a Priceline deal. The staff was very courteous at check-in. Upon entering my room I immediately noticed the exterior of one of the restaurants outside the room being power washed. The noise from outside was loud and made getting to sleep difficult, so I returned to the front desk and asked... More

We stayed at the Boardwalk Inn December 28-30. The weather was dreary, but the hotel was cheery. The front desk employees were helpful and friendly. Parking in the garage was plentiful (but remember it's the OFF season). The room (415) was clean, and I am picky about these things. We ate on the boardwalk at Bubba Gump's and at Landry's... More

This is a lovely hotel situated right on the boardwalk in Kemah with lovely views of the water! Great location for family fun and surrounded by good restaurants with a marina right next door. We walked to dinner and breakfast, so you only have to park once!
