The hallway to the room was musky smelling. The room was old looking. The tv was the size of my computer screen. No vending machines, even though the... More

We were visiting Kemah boardwalk for the day. We decided to stay because we were having so much fun. We did not have reservations and went to Boardwalk Inm to inquire on a room. To our surprise another hotel guest was unable to stay and wanted his room given to a military guest. The front desk receptionist was eager to... More

Horrible experience staying at this hotel. Asked for a crib for my little one and when I put him in there at night, he fell right through the crib onto the floor! The crib had nothing supporting the mattress. Terrible thing to see happen to your baby as a mother. I spoke to the manager of the hotel. She did... More

we reserved a 3 bedrooms condo instead got a 2 bedrooms. No one told us in advance. Just found out when we're in the condo. Even the front desk didn't bother to inform us. Very disappointed.... Bad customer experience....

This is a tough one for me. Let's start by rating the hotel, which is exactly why this is for: The hotel was fine for me. However, I was there for business with a number of other ladies (it was a Woman's Conference) and not everyone had the same experience as I did. I only stayed for one night, others... More

Totally enjoyed our stay at the Boardwalk Inn. Room with balcony overlooking several restaurants and shops. Rock the Dock music played from 7 to 11 pm. Grandchildren enjoyed the midway rides and atmosphere the boardwalk offered. The hotel was excellent. Rooms were very clean. Swimming pool area was quite comfortable and parking at the hotel was convenient. Hotel clerks were... More

Right outside the hotel are several restaurants along the boardwalk. There's a midway section of games and rides too. Live music played until 10p so we kept having to turn up the tv sound until they quit playing. Hotel was better than expected for a 3 star. Free parking.
