How can you describe a hotel that is so absolutely amazing that you can't wait to go back? We arrived the night before we were leaving on a cruise out of Galveston, just before Hurricane Harvey hit the area. Everyone from security to housekeeping and the front desk were helpful, caring and just plain fun. We felt secure there during the waves of rain and thunderstorms that kept hitting. The front desk kept us up-to-date about weather forecasts, road conditions, high tide water problems and restaurants that were open. We arrived on Friday and ended up staying until Monday. Really looking forward to returning when the weather is great and enjoying everything the area has to offer. Because of the weather, the pool and hot tub were closed and also the Boardwalk was closed to the public. The caring attitude from all the employees made our stay enjoyable despite the weather. Looking forward to returning!

What a wonderful surprise to find a meeting space that was accommodating and convenient to all the fun that makes up the Kemah Texas experience. Our tech event happened in a great meeting space for 50 - 60.

Just hosted a very well-attended conference here. The quality of the food, the meeting room set-up, ease of parking, coupled with the friendliness of the staff made it a breeze to host and impress our audience. The many high quality restaurants and family entertainment options near the venue was an added enticement for folks to attend our event. Several attendees remarked that they would like to come back for a weekend. I highly recommend this location for special events.

Room Tip: Did not stay here but the hotel has beautiful views from both sides.
