Friendly, efficient and competent staff. Very knowledgeable about the area. Room extremely comfortable and clean. Only wish there was a restaurant on site. Don’t like having to go out around others during this pandemic.

Very clean hotel and friendly staff. No breakfast but there is coffee shop near by the hotel.

You could hear through the walls to the other room. I have never stayed in a hotel where you could hear the other people in the room next to us. The hotel is clean, but very very thin walls!

Wonderful service! Great hotel! Very clean & breakfast is wonderful. Great location.

The hotel was very clean and nice. Hotel staff very friendly. The only negatives would be no free breakfast and for some reason the lobby always smelled funny. The rest of the hotel smelled good though.

Nice aquarium. Liked the walking distance to boardwalk.

Walking distance to Kemah board walk and super affordable .

Clean comfortable friendly service. TV didn't work properly. We only mentioned it when we checked out. Would come back!

The vent in the bathroom looked like it was fixing to fall out of the ceiling. No water pressure. Decided to eat at the restaurant in the hotel- MISTAKE! Took 1 1/2. Started bringing out food & said it would be another 10 minutes for Mac & cheese after we had waited already an hour. The wait staff was friendly & said she would give our rom number to manager to apologize for wait- never heard a word from them! Thank goodness it was only one night.

the hotel is within walking distance from the Kemah Boardwalk.

overall a well located and nice facility... the musty odor on the fourth floor made me assume there had been a water leak that wasn't properly addressed and my sinuses went ballistic... the entrance had 30.06 and 30.07 posted and I had to leave me firearm in my truck which I am not comfortable doing. I would not stay here again unless the change their gun policy and rid the 4th floor of the musty odor....

Conveniently located, we did see a couple of small ants on the nightstand between the beds. Pool water was not very inviting, so we didn't get in it.

This hotel was $100 cheaper than the boardwalk inn. We stayed one night. Very clean, looks brand new inside. quiet.

Great location for quick access to Kemah Boardwalk. Rooms look new or recently renovated. Only downside was poor wifi in our room, but we weren't in our room much anyway. We'll definitely stay here again on our next trip to Kemah.

Great place for business or leisure travel. Restaurants and entertainment within walking distance. It is difficult to find entertainment within walking distance of a hotel in this area of the city. If you are traveling for business in the La Porte/Baytown area, it is a nice change of pace.

Everything was great, except for the cleaning staff that knocked on our door four times from 9:30am to 10:50am. Checkout isn't until 11:00am.

Nice hotel. Walking distance to beach, restaurants, shops and Boardwalk. Looking forward to another visit and will definitely stay at this hotel again.

Anonymous, Thank you for being our guest. We generally do not have this issue as our building was actually constructed at a higher standard with cement reinforced walls for safety and comfort. We understand when the hotel is at capacity or a large group or event is taking place noise although expected is possible. We apologize if this was the case and hope still, to welcome you back as our guest. Thank you again for being our guest, safe travels.

Thank You! Thank you for sharing your guest experience with us. Our entire Service Team wishes to thank you for your kind mention on our friendly staff. We do apologize if the air quality was less than pleasing upon your arrival in our lobby. Due to our sliding doors and multiple entrances, we can not control what may blow through on occasion. Thank you for mentioning the rest of the hotel smelled good. Holiday Inn's worldwide do not provide complimentary breakfast. Every Holiday Inn hotel does have an on site full service restaurant and bar with delicious menus for our guest and local patrons to enjoy. Don't forget Holiday Inn's worldwide are also known for their "Kids Eat Free" program. Children 12 and under enjoy their choice off our kid's menu at no charge when accompanied by an Adult with an Adult meal purchase. Thank you again for staying with us and we truly hope to welcome you back again soon. Until then, safe travels & take care.
