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.

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.

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!

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pa1950 A really good hotel
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.

I chose to celebrating my birthday, over the Easter weekend, with family and friends. We all agreed that the service we received was exceptional. The hotel is three/four star rated yet the group felt the service, atmosphere and accommodations were 5 star. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

I travel frequently and have had very bad and very good hotels. I definitely put the Holiday Inn Kemah in my top 5 hotels. I stayed at the property for a couple nights during a work conference and was treated like a princess. The staff were so accomodating and friendly and the property was beautiful, clean, and well kept. The location is great as well...walking distance to Target, gas stations, and restaurants. Keep up the good work!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dobber Came for Business, will return for Pleasure !
My position requires about 80% travel, and I stay different hotels almost every night of the workweek. Hotels start looking all the same after a while, but not this one. The staff was exceptional, and took the time to not only learn my name, but learned a little bit about me. I never considered Kemah for a vacation destination, but after my recent business stay, I am looking forward to booking time at this Kemah location with my wife for some quality time together. The hotel staff has already provided me with ideas on how to relax and recreate with my wife at their location, and city. Wonder property worked by wonderful people.

This was our first trip to Kemah. I am so glad we stayed here. The staff was AWESOME. Amie at the front desk, Noe in the Sporting News Grille for breakfast and Karen and Sebastian behind the bar. Our room was cleaned with great care by Margaritte in housekeeping. If you stay elsewhere it will be your lost. We will be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 First time in Texas
My husband and our family checked in for a week. We have two teens and a younger son. There is so much to do in this area, we never had a boring day. The pool is nice, but wish it was heated. The water was chilly! The rooms were clean and the suite we stayed in was perfect for us. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They even took the time to acknowledge my birthday. We will be back when we come to Texas to visit again. The only reason I gave the food a good, was the menu selection was ok. But plenty of places around to eat.thank you for our great stay! Aimee at the front desk is so helpful, and noe in the bar/restaurant was so nice!

This is a great hotel, especially if you are visiting the Kemah Boardwalk. There is a Sporting News Restaurant on-site with great drink specials, but also very close to a great deal of local hot-spots. Sufficient fitness center but would be nice to have some free weights available. Love visiting this hotel and I will be back next month!

Walking distance to many of the restaurants and bars in Kemah. Close enough to drive to Galveston and NASA.
Fitness room could use more attachments for the universal gym (curl bar, tricep rope, seated row bar, etc.) and a set of dumbells to increase the functionality and options.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Check Mate Breakfast
The Hotel should give other options for a breakfast (or at least a cup of coffee and roll) than just the $12.95/person breakfast.
Not everyone wants to eat so much for breakfast and yet do not want to go out of the Hotel to find something to eat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by devicemanager Pleasantly surprised
The location was very convenient and within walking distance from the Kemah Boardwalk. I phoned in the reservation, and when I arrived a few hours later the check-in was prompt and courteous. We even asked and were given a room upgrade to the 5th floor. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Even when you would walk around the hotel you were greeted by the staff. Since it was a Thursday there were fresh baked cookies available. Oddly enough Fri/Sat/Sun are not cookie days.
The overall appearance of the hotel and rooms is above average for a Holiday Inn and other "affordable" hotels that I have stayed at. The decor is modern with a beautiful saltwater aquarium on the main floor. There was a decent sized workout, laundry room with two washers/dryers, and I also noticed a computer room. There was also a concession room available in case you didn't want to walk or drive up the street. The room was clean and smelled pleasant. We stayed in a corner room facing the Boardwalk and had an amazing view. The king bed and pillows were very comfortable. We were not a fan of the self-closing bathroom door though. We also did not try the hotel Sports Grill since the Kemah Boardwalk is only a few minutes away. T-Bone Tom's (featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives) is only a few hundred feet from the hotel, and is worthy of a visit - quality food and not as expensive as the Boardwalk restaurants.
Rest assured that the next time I need to visit Kemah I will be staying at the Holiday Inn.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by worldtraveler123 beautiful hotel
The hotel is very nice and relaxing. The only downfall is the food in the restaurant. the buffet food was cold and the food was also half empty and never replenished. The hotel is in a great location for fun things to do in the area. For platinum members or any IHG reward club members, the hotel does not thank the guest for being loyal nor does the hotel like to upgrade its platinum members to a high quality room. I personally had to ask for my upgrade. Although, it is based upon availability and other things, I asked the clerk and she informed me that the hotel NEVER upgrades people because it is not their policy. I was very upset about this. I stay here because I like the Holiday Inn Brand but I feel if you are a platinum member then they should thank you and appreciate your loyalty.
