Four of us needed a room for the Friday night prior to a cruise departure. I had looked at this location many months in advance but could not book until the 2015 rates were posted. I was contacted and advised the two rooms necessary would be over $200 per room. I said sorry not worth it. My friend then did... More

We stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff was very friendly, they let us check in a little early and even upgraded our room to a suite! There's a lot to do on the Boardwalk too. Our room was clean and very nice! Can't wait to visit again!

Our room was nice and spacious, clean and pretty much as described on the website. We enjoyed the private balcony. The staff was very professional and very helpful. They told me about the priority restaurant seating, which I took advantage of. Our stay was very affordable. And very convenient for us since we intended to visit the Kemah Boardwalk and... More

We spent a night here and it was so nice. Had a very homey feel to it. Would definitely go back. The beds were very comfy and the view of the boardwalk was awesome! Only reason I didn't give it all fives is because the walls are like very thin. You can literally hear the people quite clearly in the... More

The Boardwalk Inn is a great hotel if you want to experience Kemah. Many restaurants and attractions. It has rooms that face the water and event center. Staying in Feb. allowed us to enjoy the peace and quiet. In the busy season it is more like party place. Live music is out your door. Rooms are tastefully decorated. You can... More

The next time we took the kids to the boardwalk...and surprised them with a night there. It was...according to our two children...magical.

Overall, this is a very charming hotel. My wife and I planned a staycation here for one night to celebrate our anniversary. You cannot beat the location. Parking was incredibly simple.
