The title may be over the top, but the Lighthouse Inn stands out compared to many of the offerings in Rockport. True, she is an older lady, but she is kept up well under the conditions. Great, helpful staff. Comfy rooms! The pool and hot tub looked great. Small, reasonable bar with a nice selection of beer and wine. You...

We stayed in the Lighthouse in March for my husband's birthday. This hotel is perfection. From check in to check out we were made to feel very special. The location couldn't have been better for walking to restaurants and seeing the sights. It is also a short drive to a grocery store with the area having all that one would...

Fresh brewed coffee available all...

Wear and tear from being bayside, rusty tub, doors that stick, peeling wallpaper. Worn out decor and furnishings. Beds sag in the middle. Housekeeping did not come by till after 2:30 in the afternoon. They clean the rooms to flip first, then take care of existing guests. Cramps being able to use your room. Even then only some of the...

From checkin to checkout this hotel is a great place to stay. the buffet breakfast is great and always served in time for an early departure for birding or fishing. Would not stay anywhere else in Rockport.
