Room was nice but, could use curtains. The blinds on the window and balcony door didn't block much light from the balcony. The room was so bright we had trouble sleeping.

Pros: Nice parking garage with restaurants, shops and amusement park within walking distance. Room was very nice.
We stayed here for the Superbowl because it was outside of Houston's price gouging on hotel rates. We were 35 minutes from downtown Houston. If we ever travel to Houston or Galveston again, we will be staying at the Boardwalk Inn.

Had a great stay at Kemah Boardwalk Inn. Staff is nice enough, rooms are very nice and clean with outdoor balcony and the views are very nice, especially from the northeast facing balconies. Going from JSC to the hotel only takes 15 minutes in rush hour traffic though it looks more daunting than it is.

My husband and I stayed here and really enjoyed our stay. Our suite was very clean and spacious . Walking to several restaurants was very convenient. Staff at front desk was nice and helpful but many times we walked by but they didn't even look up to say hello. Overall experience was very good.

Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing
Location: Boardwalk fun and restaurants
Kemah Boardwalk inn was clean, modern and right in the heart of all of the fun the boardwalk has to offer. I had a partial view of the water and it was wonderful. The staff was great and I felt safe and was happy the parking was free.
