Our first time to stay here and it won't be our last. We really liked this place. We had a Captain's Suite on the first floor. It had a separate master bedroom with a king-sized bed, closet and 27-inch television. The separate living area had a sleeper sofa, recliner, small dinner table, and a 27-inch television. It also had a... More

We spent last week at the Lighthouse Inn in Rockport. One of the favorite parts of our trip was the Inn. Our room was bayside, 3rd floor. We watched the little fishing boats head out at sunrise. The view was incredible. The hotel was clean, airy and welcoming. The staff couldn’t have been friendlier. Lindy was our favorite....just a bubbly... More

We love this Inn. Stay on the third floor facing bay. Beautiful sunrise from your bed! Breakfast buffet is huge and varied. We return twice a year! Went on Whooping crane tour this time and have the shrimp po boys at Charlotte Plummers restaurant. Relax on the pier and watch the sunset!

We have stayed several other times and throughly enjoy the hotel. My only complaint was checkout. We had a 6:45 a.m. tour with Kevin Sims to see Whooping cranes and I asked for a late Sunday checkout. Told normal was 11 and the latest was noon. So we had to get up very early and get out of the room... More

Although the hotel was an older one, the amenities were very nice. The buffet style breakfast was excellent. I loved the third floor balcony off our room facing the bay. The bed wasn't the best and the bathroom was quite small, but the room was clean. We will return.

We arrived 12/28/14 and departed 12/30/14, just enough time for a quick get-away between Christmas and New Years. As usual, the room was comfy and clean, the staff was attentive and friendly, and the food was superb. All in all, a great stay!

Ah, my favorite place to stay...we have now stayed at the Lighthouse Inn 3 times. Every time we go, it gets harder and harder to leave. In fact, our original 2-night stay became a 3-night stay because we were enjoying ourselves so much. We were lucky enough to stay on the top floor this time, in a bayside room. Wow.... More

We found great staff, convenience, great room, beautiful view! Going to Rockport this is an awesome place to stay. We were able to see Dolphins and birds right from their pier. It was a perfect day, we will definitely go back and stay longer.

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend here. Very nice rooms with balconies. We overlooked the street and pool, which was fine. The water view rooms would be nicer, but given the price difference I'd definitely do pool view again. They have a restaurant with water view as well as lounge chairs outside along the water. Within walking distance... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review about your recent stay.

We stayed here over Christmas for a low-key, relaxing family vacation. This historic hotel is situated nicely: on the border of Rockport (alas, a swath of new condo developments and commercial strips separate it from Old Town downtown) and Fulton (a much more charming fishing village with stately homes leading down to the docks). But if you get a bay... More
