I was a single woman traveling so safety was very important. I felt very safe here. It was also very quiet and close to the beach. Bed was comfortable and kitchen was stocked with accessories. Shower was very tight, but it did the job it was supposed to! Everything was clean to my standards (which are quite high). Overall, it...

Stayed for two nights and were overly pleased with our rooms. Super cute and super clean. It was two blocks from the beach so visiting during the day or night was a breeze. Everything we wanted to see or buy in town was within walking distance of the lodge and was perfect for coming back to crash before heading to...

After looking at all the others we decided we liked the feel of this place. It's got charm and character. I like the big windows and attention to details. It felt like a beach house. We tried Best Western and even tho it had a pool and breakfast included the rooms were dark and smelled like bleach. Not our thing....

This was our first stay and we will be back for sure! We brought our two dogs who enjoyed having their own rooms and a double bed each. :) This place is wonderful for people who travel with their pups. There is a bathroom area, the supply poop bags and trash cans, there are hoses on the sides of each...

I was looking for a sleepy beach town on the gulf coast of Texas. Just recently moved to Austin and figure - a 4 hour drive for weekend get away would be warranted once and a while. I found it in Port A and will be staying at the LHL every time I go down for my weekend away. You...

This place was amazing! It was fun, laid back, and everyone was really nice! I love how dog friendly they are. I brought all 3 of my dogs and didnt have to pay a arm and a leg like most other places. We have found our new place to stay when we come to Port A, and we come a...

This was my fourth time to stay at Laughing Horse and it's always the same. Very cool rooms, friendly staff and very pet friendly. I love this place! A short walk to the beach makes for a GREAT location. Very cool vibe!
