The rooms were a bit pricey but the location was excellent. The parking was awesome as you parked in the garage on the 2nd floor and walked right into the lobby. The hotel is really nice and located right in the center of most everything. All in all a very good experience.

I booked this Kemah hotel over all the other comparative hotels due to the reviews and location. At 11:30 pm, extremely loud guests were directly outside our door laughing and yelling. I politely told them we were trying to sleep, and they dispersed. At 8:00 a.m., construction work began and it was LOUD. I called the front desk and they...

Stayed for our anniversary weekend this past weekend. Very nice. The boardwalk has a lot of great restaurants and fun stuff to do. The rooms are always nice and clean. Pool is heated somewhat and they have a Jacuzzi. My husband and I really enjoyed the balcony to sit and just enjoy a drink or two.
