The bed seriously lacked support and both of us had trouble sleeping a full night. I almost never start a review with a negative, but this one was significant. The hotel is beautiful, very clean, and mostly well-maintained, quaintly charming with modern convenience. It's as lovely as the website claims. The view of the bay 30 feet from our window... More

We chose to meet some friends in Rockport since it's about an equal distance from Houston and McAllen. I wanted something that wasn't the usual chain hotel. The Lighthouse Inn was perfect! It's located on the bay. The surprising thing was the old fashioned lobby was a meeting / hangout place. Several card tables were happening on Friday night. It... More

Our first time for staying at the Lighthouse Inn. Of course, it's off season, but we love the quiet and more laid back atmosphere along the Texas coast in the fall/winter season, not to mention NO 100+ days with 90% humidity. Our room was very clean, very accessible, and the Inn is in a great location for walking to many... More

I have been going to the Lighthouse Inn for some years now. Always, the stay has been great. The staff is outstanding and you can not beat the view of the sunrise over the bay there. Whenever I am in area, Lighthouse Inn is always my first choice!

We planned to stay one night as a stop-over on our Texas tour but liked it so much we stayed an extra night. Very comfortable, welcoming and well run. The location is a delight. There several restaurants within a short walk.
