The boardwalk is a lovely area, nice restaurants and entertainment and the Boardwalk Inn is right in the centre. My room was a little tired but the hotel is undergoing a refurb so I imagine it'll be sorted soon. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant or bar - but with so many options right on the door step that isn't... More

Everyone was kind and friendly which is a huge deal for my family. The hotel is very accessible to the boardwalk, clean and nice place to spend one's birthday at. I totally recommend this hotel, excellent location.

Why not stay in a serene setting on the water, take a walk on the Boardwalk or along the water. The Boardwalk is just outside your door and you are steps away from excellent restaurants. Your drive to NASA is 5 minutes. Great place for a staycation.

We reserved the Presidential and Executive Bay Suites because we were hosting our reception on the FantaSea Yacht, which is literally steps from the Boardwalk Inn. Our experience in Kemah specifically with the FantaSea staff was impeccable, that's why we were shocked at the cold, lazy, and downright mean reception from the front desk of the Boardwalk Inn. I understand... More

The older hotel is going through some renovations so I think once they update, the hotel will be up to normal standards again. The room was clean, bed was comfortable to sleep in. Staff was friendly upon checkin. The t.v. cable didn't work so well so we used our own electronics instead.

Hotel was pricey for the quality. Rooms need remodeling/updating. The rooms are on the boardwalk and it's noisy due the train horn, bands on stage and people playing in the fountain. The rooms and pool need updating.

Had a pleasant, relaxing getaway in Kemah. Our first visit to Kemah was during an off-peak time, so we pretty much had the hotel and boardwalk to ourselves. We were greeted by a pleasant desk clerk. Our room was quiet and relaxing. We would definitely return.

I stayed at the condos of the Boardwalk Inn and there were good things and bad things. For the errors made what I can say is that they were prompt in trying to fix them but should not have occurred. For example, a request for a crib was made and it was not provided, the a/c was broken in 100... More
