We stayed at this hotel for 2 nites recently as part of our vacation. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very courteous to our needs. It is also located only blocks away from the boardwalk and shopping centers. I would definitly recommend this hotel as a great place to stay.

This is a hotel that is very conveniently located to the Kemah Boardwalk. It was just as pricey as the Hilton and other upscale hotels, probably because of its location. It was very clean and modern, with like-new accommodations. Parking is an enormous challenge if the hotel is full, which it was when we stayed there. There are some service... More

Great breakfast and came with the price of the room. The breakfast was actually cooked individually, not buffet. Hotel was clean and well maintained. When we checked on the confirmation a couple of days in advanced, the clerk seemed not to care. Our rooms were not reserved correctly. When we called again it seemed like her supervisor must have been... More

I stayed 5 nights at the Kemah Holiday Inn on business. My stay was excellent. The location was an easy drive to Texas City and the hotel is very new and modern. I was in room 425 and it is a large room with a king sized bed. The room is modern and has a long counter and a table... More

Stayed here on a weekend visit to the Houston/Galveston area. It is a great location if you want to see the Kemah boardwalk. We stayed on the 5th floor and the view was great. They shot off fireworks that night and we had the best seats around from our room. Bed very comfortable, bathroom only has a shower, but it... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The décor was modern and stylish and very clean. The rooms were fantastic! In addition to the normal amenities, it had lots of plugs and outlets conveniently located. There were some interesting lighting options I had never seen before but were really nice to have. The bathroom had a nice big walk in... More

This new property is one of a handful of hotels in the immediate area of Kemah, around 10 mins walk from the boardwalk. The room is nice and smart, lobby area is bright and clean and has excellent staff. A bar/diner is located off the lobby. I didn't have breakfast here as no free breakfast was offered.

I absolutely loved this hotel. Everything was perfect and on target; even the breakfast! Clean rooms, bathroom. Very updated. The location cannot be beat. Parking was a little small and compact but manageable. The pool was small too....but hey, you're next to the boardwalk! I have no complaints! The staff was amazing as well.

This is a new and stylish Holiday Inn- it is a cut above the normal chain hotel experience! The staff were friendly and went out of their way to explain the best routes to drive down to Port Aransas.
