We stayed one night in January and had great weather and a great time. The location is perfect to enjoy the Boardwalk. We walked around, stopped here or there for a meal and drinks, and enjoyed our stay. Our room was nice, clean, great view of the boardwalk and the water. We did have trouble with the in-room air conditioning...

Stayed here the day before New Years Eve. The hotel was very clean and staff very accommodating. I liked being able to eat and hang out on the boardwalk and go back to the hotel room. I would return here.

Great place to stay. Kemah is a great place to go, it's always been our weekend getaway. But this time we got there on a Thursday in December and there was nothing open except a couple of the restaurants. We were bummed at first but then enjoyed having the entire place to ourselves and the Christmas lights and taking all...

We love to stay at Boardwalk Inn. There is always something to do and plenty of places to eat. You get plenty of exercise walking around. The employees are always very friendly and helpful. We will also stay here when we go on cruises out of Galveston.

Everything was great about this hotel and we would definitely stay again. The only reason that it didn't get 5 stars is because it took 3 trips back to the lobby before we got room keys that worked, and the clerk never did apologize for the inconvenience.
