The view is the only good thing about Hunt's Castle. We booked a room for several nights. We arrived, the girl at the reception desk was very nice. It all went down hill from there. We went to the rooms. The rooms were musty. They smelled. In one of the rooms, the cord for the light (attached to the wall)... More

We only stayed here one night... and that was ok with us. The bed was hard, the shower was dirty and there were roaches! The AC was on for us and it worked great but it did leak water on the floor. Great pier.

Great fisherman's and family hotel. Friendly staff. The view of the bay is great on the bayside rooms. Nice rocking chairs on balconies to sit on and relax. Private pier to fish all night on. Tables and BBQ grilles right on the small boardwalk at the water's edge. The location is the best because it is right next to downtown... More

I have been coming to Rockport for over 50 years. Trip Advisor found a deal at Hunts Castle and to be honest, I had very low expectations. The hotel is a couple of blocks from downtown. It sits right on the water with a really nice hike & bike along the shore. The pier goes on forever and there is... More

This is not a fancy hotel/motel. However, if you are going for a few days to fish and swim, it's perfect. Our room was very clean when we arrived. The beds were comfortable and clean. The air conditioner kept the room nice and cool. The wifi worked as did the TV. We had a refrigerator, microwave, sink, and a table... More

We got room 116 and I slept well, the pier is nice, the furniture could be updated though. I was pretty happy about the place until when I woke up in the morning and pulled down the covers to see a bug. I put it on a paper towel and killed it, red blood was smeared on the paper towel.... More

I have been going to visit hunts castle for over four years. My son learned to fish at their private pier.. We recently just visited and we had a great and fabulous time. I think the reason we go there every year is because the staff and especially the owner, Ken makes us feel like family. I don't care to... More

We did not stay here, and never will. Expedia and Travelocity both offered rooms for our travel dates which we were attempting to book 6 months early. We made a reservation with Expedia. At 11pm that night, waking us up, I assume the owner called to let us know that our reservation was not valid, they are not taking reservations... More

Management response:

Hello there, I'm sorry that you were awakened by the phone call, I seen that it was just reserved at 11pm and called at 11:05pm to let you know that we have not yet put pricing that far in advanced so I could not accept the reservation at that time. Again I apologized for the misunderstanding. Sincerely, Management More

We just got back this weekend. The owner was rude. Our key didn't work and he kept having to come to room and he seemed annoyed. They gave different room at higher price and his reply was I could've just cancelled your reservation. They advertise karaoke and free wifi it didn't have either. Our room was never cleaned he claimed... More

Hello there I'm sorry you felt this was the "worst place ever" , but in my defense let me explain. To begin with our house keepers do services from 9AM until 10AM, which is where they go room to room knocking saying "housekeeping" if no one answers the girls are NOT aloud to enter the room, in which cases they...
