Our Hurricane Harvey Price Gouging Story My family of three relocated from San Antonio to Houston this summer when I separated from the Air Force after 12 years of active-duty service. My wife grew up in the Houston bay area, and we were both excited to start new careers and raise our 1 year-old daughter near her extended family. My wife is a high school teacher and I'm a member of the Texas Air National Guard. Since our new-construction home would not be completed before the start of the school year, we were happy to find a furnished, 2-bedroom cabin at Marina Bay RV Resort (925 Marina Bay Dr., Kemah, TX 77565; http://www.marinabayrvresort.com) and planned on living there until our new home was completed. Then Hurricane Harvey hit. We packed our suitcases and evacuated the coast on Friday, August 25th. Over the next few days, we watched the natural disaster unfold on the Weather Channel and through our hotel window in The Woodlands, TX. I called Marina Bay on Wednesday, August 30th to find out if the property had sustained damage and if the surrounding roads had re-opened. The property was damage-free, the manager told me, but its pricing structure had changed. Instead of the $1445 monthly rate that we had been paying, the cabin would now cost $165 per night. So, effective immediately, the average nightly rate more-than-tripled from $51.61/night ($1445 every 28 days) to $165/night ($4950/month). No advance notice. No grace period. No exceptions. And at $4950/month, we were priced-out of the cabin that we had occupied since early July. The price hike was legal, the Marina Bay manager explained, as rental property is not subject to the Consumer Take your money elsewhere.

When other business owners were showing compassion and generosity after one of the largest flooding events in America, Marina Bay ownership saw a business opportunity and moved quickly to boost profits without any regard for the families its increased rents would displace. Act. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Cabin.

Alright going straight into it, this is no resort. It is very clean. Restrooms and other facilities are the way you want them, like being in a hotel. That's where the "Resort" ends. Sites are really close together. We could not open our awning all the way, it WOULD have hit the RV next to us. If you're not staying in the park during the days none of this will matter. We spend most of our time in Houston, NASA, and other specialty shops in the area. Each site has immaculately trimmed St Augustine Grass between them. Some sites have tables some do no, ours didn't. Staff were pleasant and drove us to our site. Park has three pools and a fishing/observation pier. Overall it's a very nice park. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

An attractive urban park catering to long term (aka working) adults. Premium prices for short term travelers like us. But it was close to friends we were visiting. It is also close to Houston and NASA with many local shopping and restaurant choices. The Jarboe Bayou provides a pleasant environment to a well maintained park. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The wifi isn't strong enough to provide service to all who want to use it. Showers and restrooms were very nice. Paved roads and sites are a plus. We enjoyed our stay here.

We are near the middle of a one month stay and I have nothing but good things to say about this park. We are staying in the adult only side of the park in a premium site, very happy with the choice. As mentioned in other reviews, there are some more permanent residents who work in the area and leave for work early. We have not found this to be a bother and everyone seems to be sensitive to others staying in the park and leave quietly. The park is extremely well maintained with staff constantly cruising the park to ensure it is clean and any problems are addressed. Pools are kept clean as well, and having the choice of three different pools is superb. One of the best things about this park is its proximity to shopping, restaurants and activities for young and old. The Kemah Boardwalk is an easy walk away, as is Target, Home Depot, Walmart and ALDI. By staying for a month the rate worked out to roughly $24 / night. Electrical is extra on a one month stay. Seems to be good value to me. We stayed in a 37' motorhome in a back-in site and there is enough room for our towed vehicle directly out front of our unit. Sites are level, if anything they have a slight slant towards the water at the end of the park. Nothing levelers can't handle. We will definitely come and stay here again. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were in a pull through site and there wasn't much space between us and the RV's on either side. The place is very clean. Kind of mystified as to the need for number coded locks on all the bathroom doors, laundry and workout room. I guess non guests drive in uninvited to workout, do laundry and shower up for the day?? The length of the site was just adequate for both the RV and tow vehicle. Some were parking in the road which made it difficult to maneuver when leaving. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Long term rental in the Premium "on water" spot and the average nightly rate is $32. Landscaping EXCELLENT, Bathrooms EXCELLENT, 3 pools - 2 are very nice and other one is up front by arrivals. Dog bathing area. Laundry room EXCELLENT. Work out room is GREAT. Fire pit is GREAT for cooler evenings. Great little tiki tables all around. I do agree with one of the other reviews, that at least one pool could be heated. The water location they have is simply lovely, and the sunsets and sunrises are lovely.

Tips for other Campers:

There are many different restaurants around that you can easily walk to. Skippers for Breakfast and Lunch, Opus for Dinner, Jackies & Aspens (smoking places) for after dinner with live music. There are many other shops and fun places around. This park is very central.

We take our bikes to Clear Lake Shores and enjoy a peaceful bike ride on the little island surrounded by water... with ducks, boats, etc. We take our kayaks out on the water and visit different locations also. You are also able to take bikes all the way into the Kemah Boardwalk area without getting on major roads.

You could have several opinions of your stay here, depending just on the space you occupy. We stayed 2 months in several Premium sites, and if you "add back in" the cost including metered electric, the cost was 31 bucks a night, vesus the $75 nightly rate (Elect included) for a Premium space. The greater majority of the "Park" is occupied by hard-working oil service employees...and their families. If you sleep "light", you'll hear the truck engines start up at 5am. The less-expensive pull-thru sites are sandwiched pretty close together. If you are travelling for fun... the Premium Sites offer some more space, a cool thatched roof patio set, and their placement really showcases the beauty this Park offers. Near the Bayou there is a pretty water feature (I don't call 55 degree water a "pool"), excellent dog walk area...and a boardwalk/fishing pier. The fishing part is more for entertainment...lots of shallow water, mud...and snags. The exercise room is over-heated, but well equipped. The ice machine was a nice touch, as were the clean restrooms. The best part? Employees keep the place looking nice, and rigorously enforce the many pages of rules designed to maintain a "non mobile home park" look, and feel. By far, some of the best On-Site Management we have ever encountered in our travels. I'm afraid I'm not as happy with the off-site Corporate Ownership. Really, you're grossing (by my estimation) 175 Grand per month in total Park rent...and you can't turn on the heater to at least one pool? That's just being greedy. If there was a heated pool, we would have rated Marina Bay a high 9...IF we stay again in a Premium space. We stayed here in a 43' Coach.

A GREAT place to ride your bike, and bring your camera for some great sunset images. When coming in Eastbound on Hwy 2094, the light at Clear Lake Road (really makes getting out of the park easy) demands a WIDE right hand turn, especially if you have a large rig with a tow car. Stay left to check-in. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Heated pool, not so much. Ice cold. Quiet time from 10 pm to 7 am, no sir. Long timers all leave really early for work and the slamming of truck doors and loud mufflers begin at 5am all the way til 7am. Also black lab from neighboring business barks all night on and off and all day long when he sees other dogs being walked. Also they charge you $3 per mail package delivered. Never have we come across this as full timers. This place is way overpriced. Not impressed and will not be stopping here ever again. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for the first time during Mardi Gras time and had a blast. The park was clean, well lit, staff was friendly and very accommodating (gave us great restaurant recs) and it is very centrally located to all the fun in the area. Our dogs lo-o-oved the grassy area, and we really enjoyed the dock right on the water. We were a little wary after reading the previous review, but they definitely have fixed all the things that were complained about. If you are traveling to the Kemah area, this is the nicest place no doubt. My husband and I will definitely be back! We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

I was really looking forward to coming back to this park but it has really changed. Owner seems to have become money hungry and making poor decisions. Park is very dark because lights are all out and has supposedly been like that for months. He has the older ladies in the office doing night time security, which is dangerous! My husband watched an incident happen with a drunk guest and was worried for the poor woman's safety. Apparently not screening people anymore. Police were there twice during our 4 day stay.Internet not working, problems with cable TV and electric service. All I heard the whole time we were there, was how upset everyone was. Very sad. I felt bad for the office staff who get to hear all the complaints.Used to be a really nice place. Luckily, there are a lot of new places popping up in the surrounding area that we can try.

While it is very pretty, this park is way too expensive for what you get. We camp over 200 nights per year. This is the most expensive park we ever stayed in. At $40 this would be an OK park. This rate reflected Good Sam discount, and the up-charge for weekends. We originally planned four nights and paid the weekend rate. Discovering we had a mechanical issue, we extended three nights more but they refused to let us convert to the weekly rate. Other parks have done that for us before. The sites are very narrow. You could literally open your window and tap on the next door window. There are few tables, but there is no room for them anyway, or for chairs. There is no shade for the pull-through sites. The Wi-Fi is not functional. The Cable TV is snowy. It is more than half full of extended stay campers. Those campers are working families and do not cause any trouble or noise. It does rankle that they are paying $600 per month and the transients are paying the equivalent of about $2000 per month. The most concerning thing of all is there is no one there when the office is closed. No one answers the emergency number. There was a water leak, causing a flood and no one answered when the water company worker tried to reach them. No one picks up. Someone put beer bottles in the fountain and I walked by it for two days before I finally fished them out myself and disposed of them. This place is the only game in town and they know it. Once someone else opens up a reasonable park, they are in for an awakening. We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Enjoy the park but business practices have a lot to be desired. We heard through the grape vine today that monthly rent is going up $100 this month with no notice. We have been here for several months and intended to be here long term . When we checked in they said they had raised their rates since we were there before but we didn't care because that was 5 years ago and seemed justified I spoke to the office and they confirmed. I ask why there was no notification and they said it was posted in the Laundry room and community room ( things I don't visit ) so we had no way to know. Apparently a lot of others didn't either. I ask why they didn't send out a notice or a notice in last months bill and they said that this is how "Corporate " told them to handle. Checked their web site and it says "rates subject to change with no notice. Don't know if that was every there or not before, its certainly not printed on my receipt. To anyone booking reservations, I suggest you get confirmation in writing on how long your rate is good for . We camped at Marina Bay RV Resort in a Motorhome.
