Recommend to stay at Kemah Borderwalk hotel for the convenience and customer service. You won't be disappointed at all. Plus easy access to Plaza entertainment, restaurants and rides. I'll return in the near future.

It was a really relaxing time with my grandkids, plenty to do for a two day stay. No long lines for the rides. The stingray exhibit was really exciting. Dinner at the aquarium was a high light, as was dancing to the band. It felt like good wholesome people were at the park while we were there. We're safe feeling.... More

Our only complaint is that there is no room service . Not that it was a big deal until we realized that the only 2 vending machines on the property were empty. There is no way to provide snacks or drinks for your kids unless you pack your own. The vending machine literally had 4 items to chose from. All... More

The staff was very friendly. My room was very nice and the view from my balcony was awesome. Enjoyed the band on Tuesday evening. Enjoyed sitting by the pool which was very clean. The grounds are lush with greenery and flowers. Just beautiful!

The condo was great and you could walk to the Boardwalk. The beds were comfy and the A/C was awesome, especially in this TX heat! We did not hear the neighbors so that was plus! Overall good experience!

Love this place. We went during the 4th of July holiday and we had a blast. It was so wonderful to have a room so close to the places we were going. If we got tired we simply went back to the room. Love this place and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to go on vacation. There are restaurants... More

Expected much more. Not the 5 star it claims to be. Sheets were so thin you could almost see thru them. Front desk staff was polite but couldn't asnwer basic questions about boardwalk. Should have stayed at Holiday Inn next door. Would not recommend.

We come to Kemah several times a year and we love staying at the Boardwalk Inn. The rooms are always clean and the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. It is honestly our favorite place to go for a weekend trip.

Family oriented. Clean, quiet. Walking access to shops, clubs. Views of the gulf. Amusement park for kids, teens. Hot in the summertime. Sit and listen to the band in the evening from the room deck or go down and sit outside while the kids play in the water sprays.
