Chesterfield, Virginia
Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Nice place, obviously caters more of a leisure crowd, but OK for business travelers looking for a more relaxing place than your normal roadside motel. Excellent setting in the Kemah Boardwalk complex. Multiple good dining options, recreational diversions right there. Good place for people watching or a leisurely stroll. One suggestion for improvement - add a desk with good lighting...

We went mid day Thursday and stayed thru late Friday night. I can't speak highly enough of the employees at the Boardwalk Inn. Both Michelle, Kristyn (?) at the front desk were so helpful getting us checked in and out and helping with directions and reservations. Marsha brought my daughter's birthday certificates and was so pleasant. The rooftop pool was...

We spent part of our son's spring break at the Boardwalk Inn. Being our first time to Kemah, we were pleasantly surprised with the location of the hotel and the Boardwalk as a whole. Honestly, our time there was lovely with the exception of one of the night clerks (Karesly), who was awful enough to make a five star review...

Spent $300 for one night and they gave my room away!! Was offered to go to a condo that was down the road at first for the same price! It wasn't until I got very upset that they even tried offering me anything to compensate for their mistake!

We stayed here in March 2017, the room was nice and clean. The Hotel is undergoing some remodeling, but we were there on a Friday evening and did not have any disruptions from the remodeling. We stayed in a regular Plaza View King Room which was very roomy and the individual balconies were an added benefit. Saturday morning there was...

We really enjoyed the hotel. We checked in the first day of March and the really nice thing was it was a slow period for the hotel. I was very quiet (inside the hotel and the Boardwalk.

The motel was very nice and decor was great. While there are older couples visiting the fabulous restaurants, the motel itself had so many children running up and down the halls hollering and slamming doors. Not conducive to sleep much less nice romantic evening for couples. Albeit it is a pleasure park with rides, my suggestion is to ask for...

I've stayed here in the past and always had a great experience. This check in was different. The room was not what I had requested. I had to request a different room. There were bits of what looked like Dorito chips on the floor by the nightstand.
