“Great 30th Birthday for our Daughter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

We booked the Presidential Suite for my husband and I - it worked very well as the "gathering place" for everyone! Our 4 adult children and their families had their own king rooms and we had a delightful time! The party was catered by RED Sushi Grill and the Flying Dutchman - all of our daughter's Houston friends and family were in attendance. Penny was amazing to help with all the planning. Thank you so much Boardwalk Inn!

Room Tip: If it's available, the Presidential Suite is the best! Three balconies, facing both the bay side...

We booked a last minute mini-vacation to Kemah and this was a blast for my family. With everything within a short walk and complementary parking, there is no reason to leave.

Staff constantly went above and beyond and made it a point to remember my name. The gave us discounted tickets to some of the attractions and free to others. It was a blessing that I was not expecting.

We stayed on a Wednesday and there was hardly any crowds about; enough for a warm atmosphere but not annoyingly overcrowded with lines.

Tomorrow we go to the beach!

We bring our granddaughter here every summer. The staff is very friendly & helpful. Beds are comfortable. rooms are fairly nice & very clean. Our granddaughter looks forward to this all year long. We always get a plaza view room so we can sit on the balcony & listen to the band. Lots of nice restaurants, great amusement park. The parking is convenient, Love this place.

This hotel is just perfect to park your car for the stay and enjoy all on foot. The hotel is the cleanest I have ever experienced. Totally impeccable. All the rooms look at the water and perfectly appointed for a relaxed stay. Lots of restaurants and stores nearby, plus a large amusement park for the kids of all ages. Probably well visited on weekends. We went during the week, nad it was quiet and relaxing.

My family of four adults and two small children stayed in the Boardwalk Inn condominiums and had a great stay. The parking was a little difficult, but it wasn't a huge issue. The boardwalk was so fun and all of the restaurants are delicious. The condos and the hotel itself are beautiful and inviting. I would love to come back here.

My sister & I and our three grandchildren have stayed at the Kemah Boardwalk Inn three times in the last year. We absolutely love it. We live 10 miles from Kemah, but it's still a fun vacation for the children. Rooms are very spacious, exceptionally clean, staff members are very accommodating - provided an air mattress & refrigerator and had it set up for us before we even checked in. Children love the plaza view with balcony and dance to the band. They have allowed us to check in a little early so children can take their naps. It is now our annual vacation spot. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Be mindful of bands playing on some evenings. Can be very loud. However, you can enjoy & dance...

I took my wife here for a surprise wedding anniversary weekend. They offer an anniversary package which includes champagne, chocolate covered strawberries with whip cream and flowers, for an extra charge it was very nice. We arrived early at Kemah around noon and checked out area attractions and were pleasantly surprised when the hotel desk clerk called us at 1:30 pm to tell us our room was ready and we could check in early before the 4 pm stated time. The Boardwalk Inn is located on the Kemah water front where there is an amusement park, water front restaurants and shopping. The hotel is decorated in country beach house style which is fitting for this area. The staff is very friendly and polite and helpful. The rooms are clean with a fountain and water view from the private balcony. The bed had memory foam that was extremely soft and comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel for a pleasurable place to stay and play.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have the water view.
