Our stay was wonderful. A welcome “oasis” during our otherwise arduous 4-day trek across the oilfields. Warm, friendly staff. It was nice when I walked in the door and Michelle welcomed me by name! The breakfast was very tasty, the view of the dolphins playing in the Gulf just steps from the hotel delightful, and the rooms were clean, cozy,... More

Now I must admit, when I first entered after traveling all day and it being around midnight, I thought it was a bit dated but it was very clean and comfortable. In the morning I couldn't believe how gorgeous the property was! It is so close to bars/restaurants and some touristy shops. It is literally RIGHT on the ocean. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review about your recent stay. Yes, the hotel looks much different in the daylight when you can look out across Aransas Bay. Especially while enjoying your breakfast. We believe it is the best view in the Coastal Bend. We hope that your travels will bring you back our way. Sincerely,... More

You feel like you're at home. Every aspect of this beautiful hotel makes you feel just like you're at home and everything is of exceptional quality. They serve you a complimentary breakfast buffet that is an actual breakfast...eggs, make-your-own waffles, sausage, etc. All of the staff treats you like family and I never wanted to leave! Oh, and you are... More

Thank you for writing this wonderful review. I am so glad that you had an enjoyable stay. I do need to point out that we are on Aransas Bay.

As always we had a wonderful stay at the Lighthouse Inn, this has been our 2nd visit as a group of 20 and my 4th stay. The ghost were playful as usual hiding my shoes under the bed, one lady in our group felt a tap on her shoulder while alone in the room. No one in our group knew... More

Clerk Michelle is a very good kind, considerate professional person. Ask for her when you're there. She was extra friendly and understanding when the first room had a noisy air conditioner. She found a replacement room right away.

This is a great nostalgic hotel right on the water. The staff was great and it's evident that they take pride in the hotel. It has a really cool fishing/relaxing pier on the water with rocking chairs. The morning breakfast is much better than some of the nice chain hotels. They have parking across the street if you have a... More

Our third stay here this year. This is the place to go for birding, fishing and fun. Great breakfast and the Palm Room has some awesome steaks. Whooping Cranes in the winter and hummingbirds in the fall will keep us coming back.

My husband and I visited last week with my sister. It was evident the Inn was newly painted and had new furnishings. The pier had new railings and boxes for fishing gear. We enjoyed the excellent shrimp and liked the addition of waitstaff who took our food and drinks order. We had a whoopsie and locked ourselves out of our... More
