My partner and I went to the coast with no hotel booked in advanced. We came across the Lighthouse Inn and our weekend was superior from the time we checked in on Friday night by Diana to the time we were checked out by Jackie. I usually don't take the time to write a review unless its a bad one,... More

Yes, This is the best hotel ON the water in Rockport PERIOD.This review is a "lot late" ...but in 7/2011 we stayed here. Whom-ever was managing here at that time is responsible. I'll be brief. I'll preface. In my opinion, over priced for what one receives. Bay rooms are best in the summer , view and (lackof heat-wise) ie. cooler... More

Thank you for taking the time write this candid review about your stay in July of 2011. I must apologies if we did not meet your expectations.

This hotel lived up to their website advertising. A well maintained property. I had a pool side room. Initially concerned there would be a noise issue, but the walls must be well insulated because it was pleasantly quiet in the room. Property ends at the water's edge. No beach, but wonderful pier with gazebo. Corporate management was responsive to an... More

We go to Rockport about twice a year for "getaway" weekends to get a way from the routine of daily grind. We always stay at the Lighthouse Inn and enjoy it very much. They are always very nice and the whole layout is very pleasant. This past weekend was no different..Great time..Just wish they offered a firefighter discount.

Thank you for writing this wonderful review about your most recent “getaway weekend”. When you come to the Lighthouse Inn we want you to be able to relax and unwind. Very rarely do we offer a discount on weekends, especially during the summer months. We do however offer some wonderful discounted packages during the week. Hopefully you can take advantage... More

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.
