Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by lumu123 Kemah Boardwalk
Beautiful property, great location- close to Johnson Space Center and walking distance from Kemah Boardwalk and restaurants. The restaurant on site left something to be desired. Diego, our server was fantastic, but had was left alone in dining room to wait on customers and bus tables. Food was average. Would recommend hotel, but would avoid onsite restaurant.

My wife and our two small children love the hotel and the rooms. The first night we had a single King room AND the second night we upgraded to the 2 bedroom suite. It was very nice either way.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jerichoroad9 Weekend Getaway gone wrong
I AM A BIG FAN OF HOLIDAY INN AND MY PREVIOUS STAYS HAVE BEEN QUITE PLEASANT,BUT MY RECENT STAY AT THE HOLIDAY INN KEMAH WAS A DIFFERENT STORY. THE ENTIRE STAY WAS MARKED BY POOR SERVICE, BAD FOOD AND SADLY WAS ONE OF THE WORST OVERNIGHT EXPERIENCES I HAVE EVER HAD. IT PAINS ME TO WRITE THIS REVIEW, BUT IN LIGHT OF WHAT I HAVE COME TO EXPECT FROM THIS HOTEL CHAIN MY RECENT STAY WAS WELL BELOW YOUR USUALLY FINE STANDARDS.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim130 Bathroom Vanity
The bathroom is very nice, but the vanity top comes to within approximately 3-4 inches from the wall. Toiletry items fall down between the wall and the vanity and are hard to get out of the small space. It would be nice if there was a way to prevent this from happening.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bladd Comfortable bed & pillows.
Depends on what you are looking for. The write up & photos made me picture something a little better. For the price, I could have stayed somewhere else & gotten the same type of hotel for lots less. I brought my two daughters to celebrate their 35th & 40th birthdays. Just us girls after a day of shopping. We thought it was going to be more upscale, including the pool.

The staff was great, the facility was clean and relaxing. I will say that I would rather have gotten the 500 pts at check-in over the snack that I chose. 500 pts would have been far more superior.

Good hotel. The rates get way too high during holidays and special events, but not bad at all during the winter months.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vicgirl Great stay!
The hotel is beautiful and modern. The crystal blue sinks add a special touch. I love the lobby aquarium and I was very impressed with the front desk staff who called me by name after check- in. And the rooms have these new clean remotes. You won't be disappointed! Ask for boardwalk view in summer weekends to view fireworks. They also have a very nice size refrigerator and microwave. 4 star on room cleanliness due to not putting up iron and ironing board which wasn't a big deal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Just one thing missing
Overall this hotel was great except for the fact that it DOES NOT have the free continental breakfast that most other similar hotels have. That's one major factor for me when deciding where I want to stay. Considering that alone, I'd probably go with a different hotel over this one. This one would be on my list of last resort. Other than that, I had no other serious problems with this place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gene-o Make sure you have a Credit Card
Our stay was great and we were very satisfied with the room and service. We reserved with a credit card but was under the impression (from reservations) we could remove the card by leaving a $500 cash deposit and then at check-out pay for our room with the returned deposit - this was not the case..instead we had to pay for the two day stay in advance along with the deposit so we were left with much less spending money than we planned. Point being, if you are planning on using cash be sure to have the total deposit plus the total for the room in advance and then bring the cash you want to spend on the boardwalk. Other than wishing we had brought more cash from home with us we had a great anniversary and would recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn, Kemah to join family members for a wedding. Accommodations were found to be modern, and clean. The staff was efficient and friendly. The location was very convenient - we could walk to the boardwalk area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stargazerm31 New and Comfortable with Restaurants Close By
I stayed 5 nights at the Kemah Holiday Inn on business. My stay was excellent. The location was an easy drive to Texas City and the hotel is very new and modern. I was in room 425 and it is a large room with a king sized bed. The room is modern and has a long counter and a table that pulls out as a work station for you laptop. The room has WiFi or you can plug in with a cable to get Internet. I Internet was reliable and fast. The room was equipped with a microwave and refrigerator which is nice to store drinks and leftovers in plus you can warm up things if needed. The AC unit worked well and I found it to be pretty quiet. The bathroom was spacious. The room did not have a tube but the stand-up shower was big. It took a few minutes to get hot water but it was hot once it got there. The water pressure is average but sufficient. I found the rooms to be relatively quiet.
There are many restaurants and the board walk are within a 5 to 10 minute walk. There is a Target across the road and I was able to walk to it as well. There are other restaurants and a Walmart within a 5 minute drive as well. Please note that this is a Holiday Inn and not a Holiday Inn Express. They do not offer a complimentary breakfast. They do serve breakfast in their bar/restaurant. I’m not a coffee drinker but I found it weird that they have coffee urn out from 4am to 6am and take it in at 6am. If you want coffee after that you have to go to the restaurant to get it. I was told that you had to pay but one of my co-workers got coffee and didn’t pay so I don’t know what the status is on that.
I did eat at the restaurant one evening and had the salmon. It was really good and reasonably priced. It was nice not to have to leave the hotel that evening. They have an outdoor pool and the workout room looked well equipped. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The location is very good. Great place to stay for business or as a jumping off point if you are visiting Houston and Galveston.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jishai3448 Bad Business
I was caught in Flash Floods with 17" of rain and was on a motorcycle and couldn't make it to the Hotel. I called and informed the staff of the situation. They was all happy with cancellation of my prepaid reservation. But would not refund my money because I prepaid in advance. I did not cancel the reservation so they could keep my money and then re book with someone else. Not happy as a IHG rewards card holder.

Just stayed here for one night on a business trip but wished I would have had more time to stay here longer. Beautiful hotel, good food at the in-house sports bar, and excellent staff - especially Amy at the front desk who went above and beyond. Kemah area has lots of shopping, conveniences, places to eat, and of course a great boardwalk! My first trip to Texas and I was pleasantly surprised by this area. I would definitely stay here again. Excellent room by the way as well!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Monkeyshine Great all around
Clean room, clean pool area, cold air conditioner , well lit parking lot area, nice inviting lobby, friendly and helpful staff, close walking distance to excellent restaurant and convience store, close driving distance to shopping and eatery. Thus was our 2nd time to stay at this location. The staff blocked off rooms for our granddaughters state softball tournament with good discount pricing which helps parents with costs of travel and extra expense for the tournament.

Was very pleased with this hotel. Very clean and well maintained. Staff and housekeeping were great. The breakfast at the Sports Grill disappointed us as to the rather poor quality of the food and the high price for a breakfast buffet. Otherwise, we will stay at this hotel again when in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rhoch68 Great stay in Kema
Really enjoyed the stay. The front desk staff remembered our name when we passed through the lobby. We were surprised there was no continental breakfast which we have enjoyed at other Holiday inns. There was a bar and grill in the hotel but did not use. Changed our schedule and had an early lunch at one of the famous area restaurants.
Room was great. Was not accustom to the large king size pillows, so struggled with them all night. Overall the stay was great.

The rooms were very clean and spacious. Of course the price was jacked up for the memorial day weekend, but I imagine the prices would be a lot more affordable if it was a normal weekend.
Other than that, this Holiday Inn is top notch and so close to Kemah boardwalk and other cool places to eat and listen to music.

Overall, this hotel was very clean and had a good atmosphere in and around it. It is located approximately 5 blocks from the boardwalk area, nice leisurely walk.
The rooms were clean and cool, lobby was nice.
But, the restaurant left a lot to be desired. They gouge you on the weekends for their breakfast buffet and don't offer you any other menu item during breakfast. Needless to say, my wife who is 5' tall and weighs a wopping 110 pounds is overcharged when she has to pay 13.95 for breakfast.
