This hotel was Nice and peaceful. It has it's own fishing pier just foot steps from your room. Friendly staff and Good food. We loved that we stores were close to walk to. The hotel is clean and has everything you need. Hot tub was enjoyable on the cool nights. We will be back.

This is an old, and quaint hotel, picturesque and charming. The facilities were well maintained and very clean; the hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. The hotel breakfast was much more than the normal continental breakfast offered by other hotels. It was served buffet style and included eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, waffles, fruit juices and more. We also ate...

This hotel is on the bay with a fishing pier on property. Free parking and a free breakfast. There is a small bar that also serves dinner. If you want a few days escape from the city that is laid back on the coast, this is a great place. You can also drive to Port Aransas for a day at...

I cannot get over how much work the staff puts into providing a fantastic feast for Thanksgiving. This has become our home away from home. We love so many of the staff who've become like family. God bless all of you. Please, those complaining of issues... The staff is on the spot if you let them know about anything. And,...

I had heard this was a really nice hotel/inn in a quaint Texas coastal town. Wow, what a fairy tale. It is old and decorated from the 80s. Nothing has been refurbished. Beds are uncomfortable. Furniture is tacky. Service was absolutely abysmal. We were so disappointed we decided to leave a day early. I waited ten minutes at the front...

Just spent two nights at the Lighthouse Inn. It was a wonderful and relaxing break. The setting can't be beat with a gorgeous view and beautifully maintained grounds. The room had been somewhat updated and was very comfortable. The staff really makes a stay here special. From the front desk staff to the beekeeper and wait staff to housekeeping and...

The Lighthouse is a great location to relax and enjoy the bay view. If you are a fisherman Rockport is a first class place to spend a few days. A little disappointed about the roach problem really need to get it under control.

Love this place. Room furnishings are old and worn but the bed was very comfortable. Spent hours sitting on our private balcony overlooking the bay; we even spotted a dolphin swim past about 40ft away. Nice to have a bar on site for a glass of wine.

My husband and I were here this past weekend celebrating our first anniversary and we really enjoyed our stay. The Inn is cute and has a real homey, almost bed and breakfast vibe. I saw some reviews say it was dated but I didn't feel that at all. Yes, their style is of the Victorian period but as far as...

Wife and I stayed here for a night to check out the area. From the outside it looks very nice, and has a lighted fishing dock. Inside the room needed a little work. Bathtub was rusty around the spout, and drain stopper was missing from the sink. Beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was pretty good. For the price we...
