I've been twice this year and it continues to be my go-to place to stay in Rockport. For what we need when we visit - a clean place to spend the night and eat a few meals while we re-charge - it's perfect. And the friendly staff just makes a good thing better. Anytime I've had an issue/request, etc., it's... More

1. Was charged too much for our stay. / I Discovered error and staff refunded the difference. Good 2. Bathroom was horrible and smelled of urine. Went to Wal-mart and bought some cleaner and cleaned it ourselves. / Bad 3. Toilet was not bolted down on one side and very rickety. Vanity had a bucket under the sink that was... More

Let me start with the positives: They had strong WiFi throughout the property, they had a decent fishing pier across the street for the fisher-people, the location was great and near plenty of restaurants and bars and...oh yeah, that's it! We were told that we would be renting a "newly remodeled cottage near the front. Let's just say that this... More

The location is good, the pool was adequate and the exterior of the buildings is generally neat and tidy. The large covered pavilion with tables was nice for a bigger group. BUT the rooms were not clean. They have fresh paint but are quite run down. In one bathroom, HOT water came out of the faucet immediately when the right-side... More

My husband, 17 year old son and I came for 4 days after the 4th of July weekend. The website states that the kitchens are NOT furnished so we brought our own stuff. I felt that we got a great value for our money. We stayed in the 2 queen bed with kitchenette #16. It was clean, fresh white towells... More

The efficiency size living room came with a with a very cold A.C. unit, a comfy couch that folded out into a extra bed and wall mounted... More

We stayed here for a quick trip for my son's birthday. The location seemed great, across from the bay with a fishing pier and close to Fulton pier. The hotel really does have potential and I really wish the owners would put a little more effort into keeping it up. We stayed in cottage #1. When we walked in, the... More

I love this place . I have been going there since the late 80s and I like room 2. Big and comfy perfect for family and friends. It is owned by Mr. B and him and the staff keep the place in tip top order. I was always supplied with fresh towels and room was kept up. It has had... More

Property management and maintenance has gotten worse since our last visit. The “NO REFUND” policy has become their solution to every complaint. Rooms had dirty linen, dirty towels, dirty floors, dirty appliances, rusty refrigerator, beds were not made prior to checking in, cracked double pane windows, patched unpainted walls, missing wall outlets, empty wall socket holes on the wall, nonfunctioning...

We've stayed at these cottages for years and never had any problems... Up until new "management" took over. I am absolutely disgusted with the rooms and serviced provided. I'll try to keep this short, but with a wasted vacation week there is a lot to say. My family rented 7 rooms and we are all disappointed. My room alone smelled... More
