I choose this hotel for my husband and I to take the dinner cruise, it was his birthday week end (09/2015) hotel walking distance from dinner cruise, staff very professional, knowledgeable, and willing to assist in any manner, our room had a fantastic view, room was clean, quiet. The bath room in my opinion was out dated with dull 1950's... More

We reserved the Holiday Inn at Kemah online, for a one night stay before our cruise the following day. The staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful, the room clean and comfortable - and quiet. It is close to restaurants and the boardwalk. I would highly recommend it. Note: this hotel doesn't have shuttle service to the airport or to the... More

Was planning on getting onto a cruise ship. Unfortunately the ship didn't show up! So we made the best of a bad situation, got a room here & walked over to T-Bone Tom's. Clean rooms & good service all at a fair price.

Newer property so still in excellent condition. Nice personnel & good housekeeping, which is most important. 3 minor criticisms: 1) rooms are large & king rooms only have a small 2 seat sofa & could definitely use a lounge chair; 2) small wall-mounted TV in the center of the room, that does not swivel so you can watch it from...

I stayed two nights in November for a business trip. Chose this room because I boss recommended it. The first room as opened and unlocked. Went downstairs to ask them to change my room. They then gave me another room. Well to my surprise that room stunk like cigarettes. So downstairs I went again. They gave me a 3rd room... More

This hotel was conveniently located within walking distance to the Boardwalk. There are also several local hangouts within walking distance. You can see the Bay from your hotel windows. The staff was very helpful with information about the area. Not only would I stay there again, but I would use it as additional housing for family since we are moving... More

I stayed here recently and I was not disappointed! Even though it was pretty full, it was quiet where I needed it to be. When I went downstairs there was a wedding or reception there so the lobby was pretty crowded. I was on the 4th floor so I didn't hear anything from my room. I also indulged in room... More

Love the atmosphere here. The employees are wonderful and very friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Just a quick walk to the Boardwalk! With lots of food and music options to choose from. Try to stay here every time I am in the neighborhood for work. Maybe one day I can even go there for a personal trip.
