This was the first stay and the Lighthouse and looking forward to another one soon. We had a room on the first floor, with outside access to the grounds, bay and dock. The room was clean and well appointed. There was some minor cosmetic ware in the bathroom that could use attention, but nothing you don't see if you travel... More

I've stayed at the Lighthouse Inn twice (a couple years back) and remembered it being a nice place. So when I decided to visit Rockport this year, it was an easy choice. The decision, however was bittersweet...I have since divorced and would travel alone with my children on this trip. Wasn't sure how I would feel. Well...we had the most... More

We have stayed at the Lighthouse before and enjoyed our stay, this visit was no different. The rooms are well-used, however clean and renovations are currently underway. The breakfast each morning was very good but busy. The grounds and location are unbeatable. Love sitting in the rocking chairs watching the water and wildlife. Will definitely be back.

I stayed in room #65. That's third floor, bay side. Room was clean, no unpleasant smells. The room décor could use a little updating, but it was comfortable. Did take me a little while to get the AC to my taste, it cooled very well. My room had an adjoining room door - neighbors the first part of the week... More

As always another great stay at our favorite place to stay while in Rockport. The staff always makes our stay very enjoyable and stress free. Clean rooms and beautiful grounds. We always seem to stay a little longer than planned and enjoy the beautiful bay view. Highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

What a wonderful place! My sisters and I have stayed here often and the beautiful bay view is hard to beat. The staff are always friendly and accommodating and this certainly isn't your typical complimentary breakfast! We plan on enjoying our trips here for years to come.
