We had two grandchildren with us ages 9 and 11 and we needed to find the right place to stay that offered the balance of location, price, and quality. I think we hit the jackpot. The kids enjoyed Kemah as well as the not to far away museum district of Houston and NASA. The hotel was top quality and service was just all we needed. In addition to the Kemah Boardwalk stores and restaurants were within just a few minutes or walking distance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neil71 Stayed for week of July 4
This hotel was very convenient for the Kemah Boardwalk, T-Bone Tom's (which is a very short walk) and the July 4 fireworks.
We spent quite a bit of time in Galveston that week and could have picked a much closer hotel, but the price was right and it turned out to be a very clean hotel.
We had a great time and recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JetlaggedJoe Wonderful staff, beautiful property, perfect location - prepare to be impressed!!
I rarely write reviews as I usually don't have the time, but in this case I was so "wowed" by my experience that I made the time. Travelling with small kids is always a challenge, so when someone goes out of their way to make it a bit easier, I feel they deserve credit. We arrived a little early for our weekend getaway, so our room was not ready. The front desk staff went to a lot of trouble to check up on the room and made sure that our room would get priority in getting cleaned up. While we were waiting in the lobby, Laurel came frequently to check on us and update us on the status of the room. She was even apologetic that the room was not ready when we arrived, even though we were the ones who had arrived prior to the check-in time - this is what I mean about the "Wow" factor. Throughout our stay the staff was very pleasant and did everything they could to make our stay comfortable - these guys believe in hospitality!
Our room and the common areas were very neat and clean - the cleaning staff are very dedicated and do a great job of keeping the property very attractive.
The location is perfect - close enough to the Boardwalk to get there walking (even with small kids) yet not in the middle of the hustle-and-bustle. You can also take a golf cart taxi to the boardwalk for a very reasonable price. Also very conveniently located for a day trip to enjoy the Galveston and Houston attractions.
The food at the hotel restaurant is impressive - staff is also awesome. The waiters were very courteous and service-oriented. The restaurant manager came around to confirm that everything was meeting our expectations.
We are already planning our next trip to Houston/Galveston and will definitely stay at this location!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CindyLu44 Nice, new hotel surrounded by amenities
Stayed at the Holiday Inn, Kemah on a short get away with my husband. The room was great! Very spacious. A brand new hotel with wonderful facilities. Although a breakfast is not included, there are plenty of places to get breakfast, as well as any other meal. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there again when we're in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mell66 Location was great!
Hotel is in a perfect location for seeing all the great attractions Kemah has to offer. Practically everything was within walking distance. Room was very spacious and comfortable. The only complaint would be that the air conditioner was not on when we got in the room. The air was stagnant and it had a musky smell. It took several hours before the room turned relatively cool. There were only enough amenities (i.e.,shampoo, lotion, etc.) for just one person....so we had to decide who got what. The bed was very comfortable and there were several pillows to choose from, ranging from soft to firm.

Me and my wife wanted to get away for the weekend and wanted to be close to the Kemah Boardwalk so we picked this Holiday Inn to stay in. Staff was great, and room was clean.

Traveled with small children and although the room was nice and clean, it is not kid friendly. But, we enjoyed our stay and had all things we needed. I would stay here again. We didn't need any assistance from staff so I can't provide comments on staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JBee Great Spring Break Experience
My husband and I, our granddaughter and her friend stayed here during our Spring Break in Oklahoma in order to go to Galveston. We had a great time. This is a very clean, very well kept up hotel. I have never stayed in a place that was so quiet. Any of the staff that we saw during our stay were always very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. I especially liked when we were coming back from Galveston I could always locate the hotel by the lighthouse tower by it. The only downside was their WiFi. We had trouble connecting with our Apple products, a Mac and an iPad. But it wasn't enough to spoil the stay. Would gladly stay here again

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cv9787 Rooms were very nice but the restuaraunt in the hotel was very disapointing
We stayed at this hotel before we left for our cruise the next day. We went to eat dinner and before we left the hotel we asked what time the hotel restaurant and bar closed. They said 10:30. So we went to eat dinner and then came back and went to the bar. We sat down and ordered one drink. We were then told at 8:00 that they will be closing in 20 minutes because the bartender was leaving and that the wait staff was also leaving. So basically they kicked us out by 8:30 p.m. We were very disappointed because we just wanted to hang out in the hotel bar and relax before we headed to our cruise. We even asked them when we walked in if they were open until 10:30 and they said yes.
I then told the staff at the front that next morning and yes they were shocked but they didn't do anything about it. They just said "we will look into it" I am not sure what that means because we were already inconvienced by making us leave before closing time was supposed to be.

I am very picky when it comes to hotels. The room was immaculate and the decor is beautiful. Additionally, every staff member from the front desk to the bar were exceptional. the Holiday Inn will be my home anytime I am in Kemah!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bertrrr Not Great
Resturant service is poor , not enough employees on hand , breakfast takes forever , Food is not good at all , the only thing that tastes ok is the hamburger . I've tried several different dishes but finally gave up on this resturant. The hotel room desk is too high to sit comfortably , room layout is not good . nothing comfortable to sit on other than the bed. I probably will not stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NASAContractor Could be better
The hotel is very clean and fresh. Well furnished, and decorated. Where they lack is in the little extras a lot of HI will do. They offer next to for Priority Club members. All members get a bottle of water and bags of Lays Chips. Platinums at most HI will get upgraded. These guys "might" upgrade but only one level. On multiple nights I have stayed, there have been numerous suites that sit empty all week. (Apparently the owner will not let the staff upgrade to suites).
Another example, there is no "lobby coffee". On the way out one morning I asked, I was directed to the restaurant. They restaurant charged me, falsely claiming they were separate from the hotel. SportsNews and Kems all all owned by the same entity owning the hotel. Lobby Coffee is important because thats how one can get the little mini half and half creamers to take to the room for room coffee, (does anyone even use that powdered junk).
Not all HI do beer and wine for Priority Club, this one definitely does not.
Long story short: the problem with this hotel is not the building, staff or amenities, its the owner. (They just don't understand the importance of investing in PC members) Regular Priority Club members who are frequent business travelers will probably not be happy here. Vacationing families there for the boardwalk will. Business Travelers will be happier at the HI in Webster.
