Had a great stay. This was my second visit and it was just as nice as the first. Great overall experience and the location makes it even better. My room was well maintained and had a great view of the boardwalk and the bay.

A great one stop vacation. Restaurants and plenty of entertainment a few yards out the back door. Park and go! Live music, fun, games and great food in a variety of choices. Fireworks to be watched from your balcony! Romantic from arrival to departure !

This is an amazing place! As a native Texan I found it extremely convenient for a short getaway for myself and the kids. I highly recommend this to anyone. The boardwalk is full of great restaurants, activities and amusement rides. I wish I had known about this place sooner! The rooms and the hotel is very pretty and cozy.

My friends and i chose the Kemah boardwalk Inn because of the location and my previous experience. Once again the Inn surpassed my expectations for friendliness and customer service!! The rooms were up to My standards and the staff was super nice.

The staff was very nice, but the rooms were AWFUL in terms of cleanliness. Will NOT stay there again. Hair was all over the bathroom, there were no trashbags, the towels were dingy. The room was just filthy.

My wife and I initially planned a short family outing during Crawfish Festival earlier this year. We thought we'd come down, meet some friends, and stay at an over-priced hotel with our daughter so we could enjoy the music from our room and get away from the crowds. Were we ever wrong!!! When the manager saw our friends, she KNEW... More

My family and I stayed in the 2 bedroom condo everything from check in to check out was perfect. Spacious. close to the boardwalk and very nice staff. Was allowed to use all the amenities even though the condos were located 4 blocks from the boardwalk

The staff at the boardwalk inn is one of the main reasons i will return. They are friendly and knowledgable. I would recommend this hotel based on customer service alone! The attractions speak for themselves and the rooms are very neat and clean.
