A nice clean room with everything you need. We didn't get to stay in the main house but did enjoy the continental breakfast on the deck. Our room was perfect for out stay...clean and pleasant with easy access to the beaches and sights. Wish we tried the restaurant and the tavern.

We needed to find a place close to Rockport and didn't have many options so we picked this place and paid the same price as some 5 star hotels but got a motel type of atmosphere and feel to it. The shower was like a waterbed with water below the floor, some towels had rust stains, carpet was like that... More

I stayed here while attending a wedding nearby so did not spend too much time at the inn, but the time I did spend there was memorable largely because of the kindness and helpfulness of the staff. I had my choice of staying in their motel annex or the inn. The staff member I spoke with recommended I stay at... More

The main building in the photos is a lovely old Inn. However, many of the rooms are in buildings outside of the main building and are nothing more than a standard crummy little roadside motel. The room was clean enough, but it was not a pleasant experience. It's the type of place you would stay if you were on a... More

We stayed one night in the Family Suite on the 3rd floor. Comfy beds, nice decor, friendly hosts and great food (the restaurant, Seaglass, is amazing!!). Lots of hot water, cookies brought to the door just before bed time - they were straight out of the oven! Free wifi. The view is nice - it's a marshland. One reviewer said... More

Our stay was for one night but that one night I felt like I had been there before as everyone treated you like a friend. We stayed in the main building on the third floor on a very hot day and night but the breeze coming of the ocean and ac made sure we had a comfortable stay. Rooms were... More

Wanted to thank the owner and her staff for a wonderful wedding weekend. Everything was amazing, can not say enough good things about the food and service. Looking forward to the next function at the Castle Manor Inn!!!

Kind and friendly staff and accommodating with requests, nice place, bed was very hard and made for a tough night of sleep, tv was very small, carpet was rough walking on with barefeet, not as cozy as I expected but nice area to stay in

Me and my husband stayed for Memorial weekend and overall the hotel was OK but we expected more based on infos and pics you see on tripadvisor. We did not get the room in the Main Building which are all the pretty pics they advertise on the website. Our room was OK- decent, kind of clean and the bed was... More

Stayed in 8 different places in the U.S. During our 4 week trip and this was the one we liked the least. Compared to th Esther's it was mid price range and it did not live up to its online description.
