My major complaint is about room design. All of the doors had automatic closers and all set way too strong. I struggled getting into the room with my baggage because the door kept whacking me in the back. Same with access to my belongings in the closet. What was the worst was the closer on the bathroom door. There was... More

We stayed here 1 night pre cruise. It was clean and the rooms were nice. The interior common spaces had a contemporary design and a large built in aquarium was mesmerizing. The grounds were well kept and plenty of outside lighting. Our group booked 3 suites. We hadn't made any special arrangements in advance for an early check in and... More

We chose to stay here on a one day visit to the Kemah boardwalk. This hotel is clean, comfortable and conveniently located near the Kemah boardwalk and good restaurants. It was nice to walk to nearby restaurants -- such as T-bone Tom's -- and the boardwalk without worrying about parking. The hotel is modern and clean. The two king bedroom... More

This property is well managed by a well-trained and friendly staff. The rooms are plush, comfortable and clean. I have stayed here several times, and one time when I left clothes behind, the staff boxed them up and shipped them to me. This is one of the best Holiday Inns I have ever stayed in.

My Husband and I stay here often, and love this hotel. We are platinum members, so we've lodged at several Holiday Inns, and the staff is always friendly and accommodating! This hotel is in close proximity to the Boardwalk, shops, and our favorite restaurant, "Amadeus"!

Great Hotel! Staff were friendly and nice. Very clean rooms! Great location to get around Kemah. Walking distance to Kemah board walk and to the many restaurants and bars in the area. I will definitely stay here again.

Pick this hotel by chance and was so happy I did. It was very nicely decorated, great staff, nice sports bar and very reasonably priced. If you are in the area a good place to stay. Room was very nice and roomy with a comfy bed. Food at sports bar was very good and staff was great

This hotel is what you might expect. The rooms are standard and clean. The hotel is within walking distance of the Kemah Boardwalk. We stayed over the Christmas holiday while visiting family nearby.
