We arrived at Laughing Horse Lodge on Friday, Dec 5th, 2014. Unfortunately we were late, but Marianne called and let me know where she would put the key and information as the office was going to be closed by the time we arrived. It was there as discussed. When we entered 3b Pony Tale, it was so cute. There is... More

Honestly, I would rate 3.5 stars if possible. We've been passing by for years and wondering about staying here. So, when we decided to come for a weekend with the dogs this was an easy choice. We stayed in #12, which was a good choice. #11 would be, too. PROS- *Great staff, easy check-in, very relaxed atmosphere. *Well equipped kitchen... More

This is shabby chic folks. bEachy fun place my family LOVES to stay at when we go to the coast. Love the decor and the vibe here. It's not super clean-it's by the beach. Honestly, I can't think of a hotel I've stayed at in Port A that has been clean and this is the closest you can get. The... More

Spent last weekend at A Laughing Horse Lodge in Port Aransas, TX. We were there for the first annual Port Aransas plyWooden Boat Festival (a wonderful event FYI), and our room was just right. Very small, but clean and comfortable--not your typical motel room--not for the fancy people among us. Best part for me was the short walk to the... More

This was a fun place to go as a family with dogs. Everything is decorated with cute colors. You will be disappointed if you are looking for a brand new type of hotel. Everything worked well. No dishwasher. You must take out the trash yourself or there is a large fee. The staff is very receptive. Easy walk to beach-few... More

The unit we stayed in could use updating. Low water pressure, one bed sagged and a visiting roach. Too pricey for the ammenties. They ask us to carry out the trash and an envelope in the room ask gratuity for the maid. Just not the place for us. Staff was nice. We've been going to the island over 20 years... More

This is our 4th Visit. Love the rooms, great beds, everything you need in the Kitchen. Over the years the prices have gone up, but you pay for location. I do think the lawn could use some maintenance and the Shower stall could use an upgrade and water pressure. Other than that it's a great place to go, especially if... More

The manager is great, she remembered us from the last time we stayed. We just didn't have as great of a time because it rained all weekend and there wasn't really anywhere to hang out besides the small kitchen. The rooms hadn't really been swept and my daughters feet turned black from walking around inside. I love that we could... More

I stayed at A Laughing Horse Lodge several years ago and on this last visit, it seemed in need of maintenance - the state of the property was beyond kitschy (e.g. there was a giant hole in the ground next to a picnic table). The Internet went out while I was there and it was not fixed. The staff is... More

We had a great experience. Perfect location and the interior of the Dark Horse where we stayed suited us so well. Kind of eclectic and fun. Love the bright colors. Everything in the kitchen was there and handy and you can get extra towels easily at the office in the towel exchange. The outside could use some updating and I... More
