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. We had originally booked the condo, but needed wifi so asked when we checked in to change which we were able to do to adjoining rooms... More

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

I don't know why we just discovered this place after traveling to Disney and Universal multiple times. Seriously, 3.5 hours away(from Lafayette, La) is this carnival fun. It is worth the money to stay at Boardwalk Inn for all the amenities it offers and the convenience to entertain your children from 10:30 am to 10:00pm. Of course, our kids are... More

Property smelt horrible, elevator was disgusting and smelt, hallway smelt like sour cheese. Tilman has a reputation of having premier properties and this one has fallen out of that category. Very disappointed in paying over 380.00 dollars a night and receiving a subpar experience. Bathroom was roughed up, had toothpaste all over mirror. Mold in the tub, outdated wallpaper, just... More

We went to the Boardwalk Inn for my husband's 60th Birthday. It was the 4th of July weekend and a crazy one for bookings, I'm sure. We came up on the 3rd, and my son and DIL joined us on the 4th. They made sure to have our rooms right next door to each other. That just made our trip!... More
