We always enjoy our stays at the Lighthouse Inn. Sitting on our bay front balcony watching the sun rise and listening to the sound of the gulls flying by is truly one of life's little pleasures! During this stay, we also had the awesome experience of watching the "blood moon" lunar eclipse from our balcony. The staff, like always, was... More

My husband and I only stayed one night but everyone was so friendly and helpful (especially the bartender and I wished I could remember her name) and we loved our room. We are definitely staying here again for our future visits to Rockport!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights this April and had a fantastic experience. The hotel is located on the bay, providing gorgeous views and a tropical feel - each night we sat out on our balcony, watching the palm trees sway over the water. Coming from the east, where there was still snow on the ground, the... More

We were a bit worried when we got there as the front desk (Ms. Nita) could not find our reservations. We showed her our confirmation and all our emails from Mr. Brian (the manager) and were quickly found. Ms. Nita gave us the third floor bay view we asked for and was very accommodating. She also greeted us anytime we... More

We stayed at this hotel when it first opened and what I was afraid of then has happened. Everything was beautiful when it was new but wear and tear is now noticeable . We had a nice stay but we got a good price and I would not pay more. Breakfast was included and had a lots of choices but... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and give us feedback about your recent stay. As we go into our 11th year there are areas of the hotel that show wear. We are replacing all of the recliners and suite sofas as well as flooring in the lobby. We just resurfaced the swimming pool and hot tub.... More

This was a return trip for us and we were given a beautiful room with a bay view, it had a bedroom with king size bed, comfortable living space and efficiency kitchen. Very clean throughout. The breakfast was hot and plentiful. The management and staff were very friendly and checked in to make sure everything was ok in the room.

We hope that you will return again very soon. Sincerely,... More

My husband and I stayed in a King Suite on the bayside. Clean, comfortable bed, ice cold A/C, balcony with beautiful bay views, dolphins swimming close to the hotel in the morning, and Starbuck's coffee (reg and decaf)! I love this place! Sure, there may have been signs of slight wear & tear (i.e., wallpaper in bathroom needed some repair,... More

Once again I have to compliment the management and staff the Light House Inn. After a long drive we were greeted with a friendly hello and after getting settled into our room a call to make sure everything was OK. The view from the third floor bat side is unbelievable.

We came for a destination wedding and stayed in a captains suite facing the water. There was a nice balcony with a wonderful view--very relaxing. The hotel is old but well-maintained. There is a complete kitchen and small sitting area. The signs on the entry door stating check-in was at 3pm were a little overkill--but having traveled quite often, you... More
