I decided to treat my wife to a spontaneous trip to Kemah and chose the Boardwalk Inn. The experience, from the beginning, was fantastic. The desk staff was very helpful, friendly, and made us feel very welcome. The room, compared to most hotels, was massive with a wonderful view of the boardwalk. The bathroom was very spacious and clean, though we did have some complaints with the plumbing. Not only was the plumbing obnoxiously loud, but water output would suddenly stop during a shower, taking anywhere from 2-10 seconds for it to start backup. Overall, though, we enjoyed our stay. And, for the location, it is pretty difficult to beat!
