We wanted to be able to walk from the Boardwalk entertainment to our hotel and chose the Boardwalk Inn. We could not have been happier, the hotel lobby is welcoming and fresh and the bedrooms are large, clean and very well equipped. We overlooked the Plaza which is colourfully and tastefully lit at night. In the morning we woke to...

We love to stay at Boardwalk Inn. There is always something to do and plenty of places to eat. You get plenty of exercise walking around. The employees are always very friendly and helpful. We will also stay here when we go on cruises out of Galveston.

Everything was great about this hotel and we would definitely stay again. The only reason that it didn't get 5 stars is because it took 3 trips back to the lobby before we got room keys that worked, and the clerk never did apologize for the inconvenience.

Love this place and the newly renovated rooms are beautiful. Great location. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. We had a king bed overlooking the plaza with a water view and balcony. This is about our 10th visit and we have never been disappointed. Hope this helps someone make their choice for this hotel.

The room was great, the view was amazing. Place well maintained at all times. Other guests were quiet and respectful. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Just keep a look out for the ants and you will have a wonderful time.

Hotel is very clean and literally everything is within walking distance. The price was very good for the size of the room. Just do not come stay here expecting silence, as the boardwalk stays busy depending on the time of year

If planning a full day at the boardwalk, this is your place. Sure you can save the extra $25 at a hotel a few miles away, but the convenience of taking a break from the BW and letting the kids rest a few is well worth it. Not to mention included garage parking. Hotel was very well maintained and had...

This hotel was cute and clean! It was easy to find a place to eat and walk around without having to drive. It was a little short on amenities - a coffee station with fruit or something to grab for breakfast would have been nice. I would stay here again.
