We had a great time! My husband and I are somewhat eccentric travelers and were looking for something a little out of the ordinary. Our cottage was clean, funky, and equipped with everything we needed, and we were tickled that our dog wasn't left out - bones and dog bowls were provided, along with dog wash and dog walk areas...

My Family and I decided to take a quick trip to port aransas to get away after all the Christmas craziness. After calling several places on the island we decided to stay at the laughing horse. I'm glad we did because the staff was very friendly and the rooms well kept. It was clean and beds were very comfortable. I... More

We love this place! Whacky decor, super-friendly and helpful staff. Stark enough to appeal to beach lovers, but comfortable,as well. There is no better access to the beach, and yet very convenient to shopping and dining.

I am super sad to give Laughing Horse Lodge a poor review. My boyfriend and I have been staying with them the last 4 visits to Port Aransas and have had a bad experience the last two stays. October 2014- We arrived the first night to find hair and what looked like shoe print marks on the bed sheets. We... More

Philip M, Manager at A Laughing Horse Lodge, responded to this review

We are so sorry to hear of your problems. We do try to be very responsive to our guests and their needs. We have replaced two housekeepers recently for inferior work and perhaps that is why the cleanliness was not up to our standards. Our property is an older beach style lodge as you know and while we can't be... More

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
