This is a lovely and cozy historic hotel in a prime location in Rockport-Fulton directly at the water and by the local harbor, with plenty of free parking and restaurants and bars in walking distance. However, there where some significant shortcomings: - Rooms are smallish and cleanliness was not up to expectations. - WiFi very intermittent and over many times... More

Janet at the front desk was the best service we have received in Rockport and we make frequent fishing trips here! Have to say she made our experience a five star rating!! She was... More

Really enjoyed this hotel. Janet and Lindy at the front desk were extremely nice and helpful. I loved that they had Starbucks Coffee in the rooms. My husband loved the bathrobes. The view on the bay side is AMAZING. The restaurant was good however had a very limited selection of food choices. Breakfast was good pretty much the same selection... More

Happy 7th Anniversary!! Thank you for spending it with us. Lindy, our 2014 Employee of the year, and Janet are 2 of our gems at the front desk. Thank you for recognizing them both. We kept the menu in the Palm Room Bar and Grill limited on purpose. We have made a commitment to provide quality over quantity. I hope... More

I realize its a place in Rockport, TX .... but, it seemed nicer based on photos and Trip Advisor reviews. It was very clean. The staff was very nice & sweet. Pure Texas. The room was smaller than expected based on photos. The view of the bay was fabulous. Sadly, the mosquitos found us out back. The big problem was... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review about your recent stay. Due to the rains we have had lately, the mosquito's have come out in force. We spray but they keep coming. I am sorry for the noise. The front desk usually has good luck when they call a noisy room, asking them to quiet down. We... More

We stayed for two nights on March 13, 14, 2015. This was our fourth time staying at the Lighthouse Inn. We've stayed there once without kids and twice when our older son was younger and it was the perfect fit for us. This was our first time staying with our second son who is now 4 years old and although... More

The rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. The pool and spa combination was also wonderful! The continental breakfast was also a plus and the staff at the front desk was fantastic! Janet was especially friendly and hospitable! The rocking chairs on each room's personal balconies and out on the pier added to the cozy and quaint feel of this... More

I was not at all pleased with our stay here. They wanted to make me pay extra for my daughter who is 18-when I had already pre-paid, There was a dead roach in the bathroom.

Kimberly, please accept my sincerest apologies for the unfortunate sequence of events during you stay last weekend. I have spoken to the staff involved and they have a much better understanding of what should have happened at the front desk as well as the housekeeping staff not completing cleaning your room. I can offer no excuses for either but be... More

We went during Spring Break I figured we would be among the crowd. However, it was very quiet and restful. The inn is older however very clean. I am so glad we went!!! The Lighthouse Inn was very refreshing. We will go back.

The weather was COLD, WET & DREARY, we bundled up and had a wonderful time as usual. Charlotte Plummer's...Rusty's..Latitude's John Martell's Photography and the Coffee Grind...etc. The Bay side view is awesome...Sunrise and sunsets! But the people who work at the Lighthouse are even more special. Every effort to make your stay AWESOME. We will be back in a few!

Jane, I can’t thank you enough for this outstanding review. We had what seemed like the worst weather for our “Spring Break” time frame and so many of our guest still found ways to enjoy themselves as you did! Rockport and Fulton has so much to offer no matter what the weather conditions are. Again, I appreciate your comments and... More
