Had a great stay. The Hotel was battered big-time by Hurricane Ike several years ago, but this gave the license to rebuild a better, nicer place. The rooms were neat, clean and smelled fresh (the little things). The location is right where you want to be. The Staff had the info needed at the time when asked. Really nice stay.

Totally lucked out on this one! We drove in from Galveston having been diappointed by not finding a hotel there that would take our family for a couple days at the beach. It was the best blessing for our family! Our kids were NOT disappointed by the change in plans when we found this place, as we decided that it... More

We stayed two nights and liked it fine. Pricey but given where it is and since it is so nice there, not complaining too much. Room balcony was great but maybe we shouldnt have paid extra for that since there is a nice big terrace balcony with lots of tables and chairs and other seating where you could take a... More

Boardwalk Inn was a disaster for our family on Father's day weekend 2010. We booked the Presidential suite, no one told us their elevator was down, we walked around with all of our stuff for about 30 minutes in the summer heat trying to find another elevator but they only have that one, and they don't even have a handicap...

We were very disappointed in our stay at the Kemah Boardwalk Inn. When we arrived, it was very difficult to figure out the parking. Each entrance to the parking garage was blocked with a sign to go to the next entrance. By the time we made it back to the first entrance, they were moving the sign and allowed us... More

This visit to Kemah was a birthday gift to me! It was awesome! The weather was good. The food was awesome. This weekend was the Zydeco and Crawfish festival. The bands were great and it was all just so much fun! Our stay at the Boardwalk Inn made our visit to Kemah extra special. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated... More

To say that I am picky is an understatement and this hotel far surpassed my expectations! We have a 24 year old son with physical disabilities and they were very accomodating to his needs. We were extremely impressed with the hotel staff's kindness and helpfulness. The garage is not accessible to our oversized lift van but we were allowed to... More
