Bay view is amazing. Try to get first floor room, you'll have the best view. The higher floors offer limited views due to the balcony gates. If you're not getting a Bay view personally I wouldn't stay here. Hotel room could use some updates, bed was sort of springy, but room was clean and again for the view it's the... More

Our rooms included a king bedroom and bath, a room with two queen beds and bath, and a living area and kitchen between them. The arrangement was perfect for our family of four. Plenty of space and privacy for everyone. For the first time we had bayside rooms, each bedroom having its own balcony, and the extra cost was well... More

Nice hotel on the water. If you want to fish, it would be great since they have their own pier. The breakfast was fantastic - real scrambled eggs, unlike many hotel breakfast buffets! Rooms were fine - I was not too impressed for the price, but maybe we were there during the high season. Pool was nice as well. Wi-fi... More

My husband and I just experienced our first stay at Lighthouse Inn/Rockport.....The character of the place is wonderful and all is kept very clean. There were old folks, middle aged folks, and families with small kids and the place was perfect for all. I have never stayed anywhere that I was treated as good as I was there. The front... More

Because we are on a tight budget, we do not get to travel very often. So when we do, we have to try and get the most bang for our buck. I heard about the Lighthouse Inn from my sister. We were going to try to stay in Corpus or on Mustang/N. Padre Island. However, she gave a resounding endorsement... More

Best hotel in Rockport! It is not a "cookie cutter" hotel. Unique, good food, great location, the balconies with rocking chairs are great! It's also great to have the kitchen. Coffee, fridge, and the availability to cook are definitely a plus! When booking, call the front desk and tell them if you'd like easy access to the pool, quieter, close... More

I go every few months. It's just a great hotel with the friendliest group of employees anywhere. Michelle, the bartender, makes the best Martini's around. Right on the bay with a dock to fish off of, a nice pool, and rocking chairs all over for complete relaxation. Going back next month!
