3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

This appears to be a new hotel. The staff is pleasant. Breakfast was poor, Make your own waffles, some muffins and fruit loops. When we were there during the week, not many guests seemed to be at the breakfast. The rooms are nice. I really can't stand flat pillows, but that seems to be the norm, at least at the hotels I seem to stay at. The good thing is that this hotel had three pillows on each bed. Did not use the pool, or fitness center. Did use the guest laundry, the washer and dryer worked fine. The two nights we stayed the elevator could have used a cleaning. The floor of the elevator was dirty, and it looked like someone had spilled a drink on the inside of the elevator door. The room that we stayed in had a odd odor when you came into the room. It did seem to be less strong after we turned on the air conditioning unit. The AC unit was off when we arrived.

We stayed at this hotel while waiting to move into our home for about 12days. It was clean, staff was awesome. Highly recommend!

We stayed in this Hotel this past weekend and its was nice the only problem we had was we went to dinner and returned to the hotel but couldnt enter our room the key would not work we were given 3 other keys that didnt work but once the clerk came up the master key worked fine. The last morning of our stay there was a Hugh bug in the bathroom sink ....I dont know what kind it was but overall it was nice and clean.....

We tried booking for this hotel a week before our arrival date. When we book online, it said that there was no rooms avaiable at this property, so I didn't bother to book anywhere else since rates in that weekend seems to be high. Fast forward a week later, I got a call from a guy from Super 8 Kemah saying that I will be charged for one night. It caught me off guard because I don't remember successfully booking or receive any confirmation for my reservation. I explained him my situation, but he became rude and say regardless he will charge me for one night. I asked for the manager but he wouldn't transfer. So beware when you book online for this place when it say no rooms avaiable, your reservation WILL go thru, so best is to call them to see!

Room Tip: Beware of booking online, it may say No Rooms Avaiable, but it will still go thru and won't give...

Friendly and helpful staff. Room was clean and comfortable. Close to Kemah boardwalk and not far from Galveston Island. Definitely would stay here again.
