The hotel was very nice and clean and the front desk agents were very pleasant and friendly. The location is ideal by Galveston Bay and I highly recommend this property ! Ideal for a romantic weekend!

Not a bad stay until I went to put my suitcase in my vehicle & discovered it had been stolen! The Hotel has camera security but the resolution was so poor and blurry that it was of no use to the police. The thieves that took my vehicle also tried to break into another vehicle the same night so this was not an isolated incident. If you stay here, be aware that the camera system is poor & make certain you arm your alarm system. It is so sad to lock your vehicle, park it where you think it is safe & then find out it wasn't safe at all. I am glad no one was hurt & I hope the hotel upgrades their camera system so this will not happen to anyone else staying here.

Clean within walking distance to the boardwalk, good restaurants close by. Very helpful staff. The beds are a little hard, but the rooms are really nice and Spacious. I would Recommend this hotel and driving down to Galveston. The price was ok Considering the location. Would be a great place to take the kids .

My family went to an event near NASA in Seabrook. The Holiday Inn in Kemah was a great choice for us. We slept comfortable and peaceful both nights (even though the fire alarm went off and fire department was called around 2:00 AM - but our 8 year old gave us sec-by-sec updates). We enjoyed breakfast in the restaurant each morning. The Boardwalk is a very short distance away. The front desk staff were mostly friendly and welcoming. We'll be back next summer.

On behalf of our entire staff we are happy to see that you enjoyed your stay at The Holiday Inn Kemah. We are terribly sorry that you were awakened by the fire alarm at 2am but we are glad to know it was just a little popcorn being over cooked for a late night snack. We look forward to seeing you and your family back next summer.

This is our favorite hotel to stay at when in the Galveston Area. The hotel is very nice and clean. It is within walking distance to Kemah boardwalk and several restaurants. There are several stores/drugstores for anything you may need. We ate breakfast downstairs at the restairant for breakfast and kids eat free with paying adult while staying at the hotel and food was very good.

This hotel is in walking distance of Kemah Boardwalk, though my 7 year olds did complain a little about distance. We had a great time there. The room was big and the beds comfortable (slept in until 9:15, later for us). The pool was not huge, but was very convenient and was set up with steps at both ends so it was easy to sit and enjoy the cooling water in the Texas heat.

Breakfast was included for 2 adults, and kids 11 and under ate free. This was no buffet, but a full menu of virtually everything you could want - omelets, waffles, pancakes, French toast, all kids of combos, even a low carb option. Kids breakfast choices were the best I have ever seen. They even brought a pot of hot cocoa for the kids.

Based on this experience, we will add Holiday Inns to our search list when we need a hotel.

Room Tip: I did not see a way to differentiate between rooms.
