A friend and I visited the Plantation Suites in high off-season and had a very positive experience. The room (two queen-sized beds) was sparkling clean and ready early; they discounted the price even below what we had been quoted because "the going rate in town" had dropped; and the breakfast was not only hot but complete, a rarity in low...

We booked into Plantation Suites because we recently acquired a Havanese puppy and they were listed as pet friendly. We arrived from Oklahoma after a very long drive and were several hours early for the check in. I asked if they would allow an early check in and the staff and management made that happen within an hour. We were... More

Made it down a little earlier this year, Sept 28 - 30th for our fishing trip. Caught 8 keeper Specs and around 70 Sand Trout (Ruben likes the small ones for pan frying) at Indian Point and Copano Fishing Piers.

Well my experience we got the room @ 2pm. We dropped our things off in the room then spent the day at the beach which is close to the hotel which is nice. When we were ready to settle for the night I pulled back the sheets to get in bed with my baby and there was sand. The other... More

Hi travel s, Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. I am sorry your first room was not up-to-standards. There is no excuse for the inconveniences you encountered.

Rooms dated and baseboards dirty. "Green" cleaning svs means they won't make your bed if you don't stay at least 4 nights. Which also means any sand you have tracked in from the beach will get in your bed, clothes and covers because they don't sweep. Trash cans outside never emptied. BBQ area disgusting! Trash cans were full to the... More

We have stayed here before in one of their regular rooms, but this was a last minute vacation to Port A and with a small dog, there were not many options on a very busy weekend.

No if you are allergic. So I guess all the rooms here are pet friendly. Which would be awesome, but we don't have pets because we are allergic. My husband's nose plugged up the first night and remained that way until we left. The rooms were clean and breakfast was served until 10AM which is always nice. Breakfast room is... More

So much to comment on...all positive where to start. We usually stay at the Island Hotel down the road from the Plantation but they were booked so we stayed here. Checking in was easy & the staff was very friendly plus they give you two complimentary drinks (alcohol if you're a drinker). Which thought was really nice of the hotel... More

We have been making yearly trips to the coast for 30+ yrs and have always stayed in Rockport.
