We recently took our two Grandgirls for an overnight in Kemah. We had stayed at The Boardwalk Hotel before and were very happy with it. But on a Summer Friday night they were totally booked. I wasn't quite sure when they offered a condo property that was a few blocks away if it was going to be too far to... More

We have stayed here several times in the past but it has been at least 10 years since our last visit. We found the hotel as remembered....a themed hotel on the Boardwalk. Although it is limited service, there are so many shops and restaurants just steps away. Loved being able to stroll the Boardwalk in the late evenings and early... More

Great stay! The proximity to everything on the boardwalk is almost priceless. Only thing missing in my room was a fridge. My cousin's room had one but mine didn't. Otherwise, the stay would have been outstanding.

The view from the room was awesome. We could go on the balcony and hear the music but with the door closed couldn't hear the people or music for rest which was so nice. Rooms were clean and the staff was awesome in telling us places to go to eat and you have to go on the speed boat. Best... More

This was the first stop for our Summer vacation. We arrived a little after 8:00PM on August 8. When we pulled up to the Inn's guest parking spaces used for unloading, a hotel employee was slowly pacing in front of the spaces while talking on a cellphone. I chose to wait a few minutes for her to move in lieu... More

Has been several years since we had stayed at the Inn. The price per night has gone up quite a bit. A little over $300/night seems a bit high as this Inn is not super luxury or plush. It really is pretty basic, the rooms are large but really just a bed, two night stands,a table with two chairs, dresser... More
