You get the feel of a place over three nights. The location is wonderful and, with a top floor suite overlooking the bay, that is one location. But not cheap - and for that money, it's reasonable to expect the room to be cleaned while you're out in the afternoon. And the waste bins emptied, and the towels changed. They... More

My boyfriend and I chose this hotel while we were in town for me to fish the Babes on the Bay tournament. I found this hotel to be a great place to relax after a long day on the water and we especially enjoyed getting to know Leslie, your chef. Leslie happened to be filling in at the bar for... More

We love to stay here for a relaxing weekend. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate you. Do check for weddings though. They take over the hotel. Also no cell or wifi in our bedroom but the weather was bad.

BE SURE to check and see if there will be any weddings or special events that will be using the lobby and returant area before you book. We came back to the hotel and was HUSHED rudely by the desk lady due to a wedding reception being held in the lobby/resturant area. We were coming back from a long day... More

Sonja, please accept my sincerest apologies for the treatment you received from my staff. It is unlike them to do such a thing and I assure you it is being addressed with all of the front desk staff.

I took advantage of the hotel's "Mother's Day package", which included 2 nights in a "keeper's cabin" bayside room , 2 breakfasts, a beautiful single rose for my mom, $25 dinner voucher at the Palm Room Bar & Grill and a bottle of wine. The hotel was what I hoped for: clean, charming "old world" ambiance and great waterfront location.... More

We have stayed many times at this hotel and each time we leave feeling very good about our stay. The bayside rooms are best! The people working at the hotel are very nice and bend over backwards to do anything to make your stay pleasant. Restaurant is small but the fried shrimp are the best in Rockport! The location is...

The inn is a great place for relaxing in Rockport. The staff couldn't be nicer and the views of the bay are incredible. We saw dolphins playing the first day there. The rooms are comfortable albeit a little dated, but the pool area is very up-to-date.

We often go to Rockport and stay with In-Laws so this was the first time we stayed at the Lighthouse. The staff, Lindy in particular were very helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had a balcony with a view of the ocean. It was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the view. Only minor complaint... More

After a great stay in Rockport the night before, we changed our mind about Port Aransas. The Lighthouse Inn was a pleasant last minute surprise. The room was clean, it was a great view of the bay, great staff especially "Angie" at the lounge. Starbucks in the room and lobby, a rocking chair and plush robe makes me happy!
