Anytime we visit Rockport, we stay at the Lighthouse Inn because of its location on the bay, the quaint style rooms and friendly staff. Many folks pick up a fishing rod and cast it into the bay while lounging on a chair at the Inn. You can enjoy a beautiful sunset with a glass of wine or a gorgeous sunrise... More

We had a wonderful visit and will definitely return. The rooms were spotlessly clean, hot tub very soothing and breakfast was wonderful - many choices, very flavorful and pleasantly presented. We really enjoy the bay views from the balcony. I spent some time on the treadmill and that was such a delight— beautiful view, nice TV and ice cold water!... More

All of the reviews I read prior to booking our room stated how friendly the staff was. We were not disappointed! Everyone from check-in to departure gave us the Southern Hospitality we know so well. Clean, comfortable and a great view of the gulf from the dining room. Our room was on the pool side and fronted the street but... More

This January we opted to change to a new hotel for the first time in 20 years when visiting Rockport-Fulton TX. I'm so happy we picked The Lighthouse Inn at Aransas Bay. Our stay was incredible! The room, bay view, location, hotel staff, and complimentary hot breakfast were second-to-none. So impressed! This hotel is highly recommended to all.

I've used this hotel for convalescence from foot surgery with all staff allowing me to feel like royalty and family. Close to many good restaurants as well as fantastic free breakfast in the hotel. Evening menu at the Palm Room was really great along with awesome service.

Charming and adorable with great bay views and great restaurants within walking distance, this is a spot not to be missed. We spent a long weekend here after Christmas holidays and it was relaxing and peaceful to say the least. The kitchen facilities in the room are a great bonus when traveling with kids. The staff was extremely friendly and... More

They have outdated Older rooms but that's part of the charm. You really can't beat the great views from the cozy balcony with the rocking chairs. We ordered steaks and baked potatoes from Palm bar and even though they didn't deliver we were still impressed.

We stayed here during the Christmas Holidays - Very nice and clean. Staff is helpful and want you to enjoy your time here. The pool and Hot Tub were clean and I used the hot tub. Pool water was cold so I didn't use it. Would stay again!
