I feel like the closing and opening times should be adjusted to the check out time. We would have love to do some shopping after checkout but everything was still closed check out is at 11am we even waited until 12pm and nothing was opening

Easy checkin procedure with them letting us in a few hours early with no penalty. Very friendly staff and good parking area. The room was plenty big enough for us and the balcony view was excellent. With a comfy bed and a great coffee maker, how much more could you ask for?

Family hotel in resort area. Kids running hard, screaming and banging around in the room directly above and in hallways. Should ask for a top floor room at end of hallway to minimize some of the noise. Parking for check in was inconvenient.

Staff very friendly, rooms perfect, the nights overlooking square with a cocktail is as good as you could ask for. The restaurants are many to choose from and an evening at the aquarium lounges is a nice end to the night

Hotel was nice, but it was overpriced. The parking was difficult, as you needed to know ahead of time that the hotel has their own lot inside of the parking garage. We had to park at the very top of the parking garage because we didn't know this ahead of time. There is also no breakfast provided after paying $200.00...

Stayed 2 nights on business. Very basic hotel although this place may be convenient for vacationers. I brought all my gym gears and then learned this place has no gym. Maybe because of it, the shower in my hotel room has no/little pressure so I didn't really take a shower well.

The rooms were a bit pricey but the location was excellent. The parking was awesome as you parked in the garage on the 2nd floor and walked right into the lobby. The hotel is really nice and located right in the center of most everything. All in all a very good experience.

My fiancé and I decided to go on a spur of the moment trip in December and booked 2 nights at Kemah Boardwalk Inn at the last minute. Loved it!
