We planned to stay one night as a stop-over on our Texas tour but liked it so much we stayed an extra night. Very comfortable, welcoming and well run. The location is a delight. There several restaurants within a short walk.

Booked a one night get-a-way on the way back from Port Aransas driving north to the Austin area and ended up staying two nights because we liked it so much. Neat place. Several genuine smiling faced hotel employees, especially at the front desk. Fresh complimentary Starbucks coffee in the lobby all the time. Great complimentary breakfast in the hotel. Great... More

It is always just a little bit of heaven to stay at the Lighthouse Inn. My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while on our honeymoon in 2005 and it could not have been a more perfect place. We stayed again last week to celebrate our 9th anniversary and it was even better. I have had several trips... More

Very charming inn on the water in Rockport. Nice restaurant and bar on the premises. Very nice hot buffet breakfast included. Walking distance to many things in Rockport. Nice pool and barbeque area with plenty of seating. Would definitely stay here again.

We recently spent two nights at Lighthouse Inn with another couple that were repeat guests. We were delighted with the property, the location, the beachfront piers and the staff. Everything was perfectly maintained and the breakfasts were terrific! We noticed all the other guests were smiling!

A wonderful, reasonable place to stay in Rockport. Right on the water and complete with bedroom, bath, living area and kitchen. Good restaurant and bar on site. Full complimentary breakfast included. We didn't use the pool but it looked beautiful. We hope to return soon.
