We were scrambling to try to find accommodations.Laughing Horse just happened to have cancellation. We took it and were so impressed with the friendliness of the staff as well as the nice... More

Our first time staying here and was very impressed with the cleanliness! Everything we could need was in the room (i.e. pots, pans, dishes, coffee, filters, cutlery, wine opener... on and on). Everyone was very friendly and did a great job. We will definitely stay again!

I stayed at the Laughing Horse with my mother in a 2 bedroom unit. Booking in and checking in was easy, and the manager pleasant and friendly. Our unit was quite dark, and the furnishings very old and tired. The unit was quite clean, but could use serious updating. The unit was spacious and gave my mum and I plenty... More

A Laughing Horse Lodge is everything you need for a getaway to Port A. On our latest visit, we rented the "Ranch House" attached to the office. Perfect for my husband, 5 teenagers & myself. This is not a 5 star resort. It is an eclectic lodge with cottages that all have different horse themes. However, it is VERY clean.... More

We feel very bad that we were so poor at meeting the expectations of this guest. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness this was a serious shortfall. We apologize for the failure. As for many of the other expectations, there is not much to be said. If our guests need things or want our suggestions for local businesses, we are... More

We try to make it down to Port A every year. We always stay at A Laughing Horse if there are any openings. They always accommodate our furbabies without any problems. Be careful for sandspurs in the grass but other than that it is perfection! Wouldn't stay anywhere else :) We prefer to go in late September because the town... More

Same as our previous visits, the rooms are clean and the premises are maintained inside and out. The staff is always accommodating and helpful. I've timed it and it is literally 4 minutes walk to the beach and only several blocks from shopping and eating establishments. We'll be back in the fall!!!!

If you're looking for an authentic beach hotel, this is the place. Cozy rooms. Very clean. A short walk to the beach. Stayed in 5B ( the Dark Horse). Its next to the street-but we had zero issues with noise. We didn't take our mutt this time, but we will next time. And we will be back again!

All the comforts of home with a very nice staff to help you with anything. The cleaning & the managment are very personable. You have a patio with your own table & grill. There is a fish... More
