My wife and I, along with our teenage daughter, visited Rockport this past weekend and chose Lighthouse Inn for our stay over the national chains. Lucky us. Upon calling for our reservation (the old-fashioned way), Connie greeted me warmly and I immediately expected the stay to be enjoyable. Check-in was convenient and easy and every employee with whom we came... More

This hotel was better than I expected. I loved the lobby furnishings, the staff, (especially Angie), and the complimentary breakfast was a cut above most of the hotels we've stayed in. Our room (handicap) was on the first floor and the water was right outside the door. The fishing pier was just a few more feet away. There is a... More

Our second stay and we prefer the Lighthouse over anything else in the area. Right on the water, though there is no beach. Rooms are spacious if a little dated. We had a balcony facing the water and it was great. Nice breakfast. Walk to a number of restaurants and 1/2 hour to Corpus. Rockport beach nearby ($5) which is... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your 2nd visit to the Lighthouse Inn. We are so pleased that you don’t want to stay anywhere else. I know that being right on the water helps but I am sure that our proximity to so many other things to do also helps. The entire staff looks forward to... More

We just finished our 5 day stay here and simply can't thank the Lighthouse Inn staff for being so warm and accommodating. Lindy, Jackie, Connie and the rest of the staff went well out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable during our time there. Our room was clean, breakfast was great, pool big and sparkling and... More

My husband and I stayed here the week before Memorial Day. Upon arrival we were greeted like old friends they hadn't seen in a long time (though we'd never been there before). Our room was a suite (same as a fully furnished 1 bdrm apartment). The decor was beautiful, and the view from our room was incredible! The bed was... More

Beautiful Rockport area and nice hotel. Front desk ladies are extremely nice and helpful. Breakfast is good, and the bar as well. The room is comfortable and has a kitchen with a living room (it is a suite). Pool is big and nice during the eveining.

If you couldn't find the "Emulate Hotel Chain" button on your hotel search for the Lighthouse Inn, here are some reasons: 1) The entire setting has character, cleanliness, caring, and an old-world charm (and by that I don't mean everything is run-down). 2) The only "rockers" we found here were quietly waiting in pairs on our balcony and on the...

My husband and I stayed two nights just recently. We very much enjoyed our stay. We had a downstairs suite with access to the pool and private sitting area outside near the hot tub. Breakfast overlooking the water and Texas shaped waffles are always fun! The staff was very helpful expecially Lindy and we will be returning soon!
