I really enjoy this hotel ...it's a great location and very nice rooms... Nice friendly staff and the rooms are clean... however when the train is running through the boardwalk...it run until 11 PM at night... you hear it because it honks about every 10 to 15 minutes... if you're looking for a quiet place this is not it..

It was a very pleasant stay. Wish we could've stayed longer! We had friends meeting us for dinner. Would have loved to just hang out in room with husband, maybe next time! Very courteous staff. Excellent champagne and strawberries!

When I first walked into the Boardwalk Inn, I felt like I was in a quaint New England Inn. The furnishings and pictures took me back to sea. The staff was extremely friendly and always helpful. Our room was large and had a balcony overlooking the entertainment area. After wandering the boardwalk, which included a ride on the Beast--a speedboat...

I have stayed here several times and always leave with a smile. The inn is built with a curve about the dancing water area. Rooms facing the plaza also get a view of the boats leaving and arriving the marina and what a sight that is especially in the evening time. It is a part of the Landry group so...

The people were very friendly and helpful. The location could not be any better! We loved it and had a great time. Plenty of entertainment and a good variety of places to eat. Was very happy a Starbucks was a 5 minute walk away. We'll be back soon!

There was a problem in our initial room 324. The bathroom sink stopper was in the closed position and couldn't be opened. We were moved to 314 which was fine. The staff was helpful and courteous. We were compensated with a $25 breakfast voucher for the inconvenience of moving to another room. A wonderful place to stay.

The location was walking distance to Boardwalk, but the condo was not worth the price.. Coffee maker was not working right, when I called the front desk, I was told nothing could be done until the next morning, only decaf coffee, no wifi, only had a few tv channels. Description of condo on the website should be more detailed and...

Our family spent one night at the Boardwalk Inn and we had a great time in the pool and on the rides. All the restaurants are within easy walking distance. Be aware that the train ride with its whistling doesn't stop running until 11pm so don't expect to sleep before then.

We really enjoyed the stay here. It was just my husband and I. It is really nice that you can enjoy the boardwalk and know that you are just steps away from your own comfortable room.

I can't say enough about the staff and how great and accommodating they were. They were very thoughtful of my son having more time to enjoy and allowed an early check-in. Family geared, excellent place
