“Relaxing, accommodating hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

Boutique hotel with calming views, comfortable rooms and staff that is friendly and so helpful. Just the relaxing enjoyable weekend we were seeking. Fantastic bartender who make a delicious Cosmo. Restaurant served very good food and complimentary breakfast was good..

Room Tip: We chose a suite to have a king size bed and sitting area. Balcony was very nice with rockers to sit...

This is a really special place to stay in a really special city. We loved the martinis at the bar, the view is gorgeous, the staff is friendly, the room was nice, the bed was comfy, and the breakfast was delicious...we had a wonderful warm weekend on the coldest day of the year!

Room Tip: choose the bayside, the view is gorgeous

We are so glad that we were able to warm you up during your stay. Michelle's martinis will do that to you! It was chilly while you were here but the weather has improved and we are experiencing warmer temperatures now. Thank you for this very nice review, the staff greatly appreciates being recognized for keeping our guest comfortable and happy. We hope that you will be back with us soon

We have been going to the Lighthouse Inn for several years. Great place for extended family and friends to get together. Some can go fishing while others can go shopping or birding or whatever - and then meet back at the inn for drinks/dinner. The great thing is that everyone has their own room with a kitchen. Hot tub was nice and hot which was great after a long day fishing. The property continues to look good - they are doing a good job with maintaining the grounds. I was impressed with the turf - green even in the middle of a drought. Last time we were there the underwater lights were out on the pier - this trip they were back on. Glad they got those working again - makes the water glow - really adds to the place. Breakfast was good as always. We will keep coming back to the Lighthouse. Already planning to come back this summer so the kids can enjoy the pool. We actually like Rockport better than Port Aransas these days. If you like to fish, there is no place better on the coast then Rockport and the Lighthouse Inn is the best place to stay.

We visit The Lighthouse 3-5 times/year, both personally and for business conferences, and we're fortunate to live within a 75 minute drive. It's our respite and oasis place--to jog and walk the coastline, watch the sun rise and set and dolphins jump as we eat breakfast, enjoy great seafood at Moondogs (walking distance), Latitude, and the Palm Room (on site). The Lighthouse is where you quiet the noise of life--and you'll be glad you did:))

Room Tip: Love the bayside suites on any floor

We truly appreciate every time that you come to the Lighthouse Inn. We are looking forward to your meeting in May! Can we use your quote “The Lighthouse is where you quiet the noise of life”? It is awesome and really does reflect who/what we are all about. We look forward to seeing you in May, if not sooner.

We had a great 2 week stay at the lighthouse Inn while visiting the Rockport area.It is in a great location right on the Aransas Bay. Their are many fine seafood restaurants within a steps of the hotel. It is right next to the Fulton Marnia which adds some local flare to the area. The staff were very helpful in making a stay very comfortable and pleasant. The only negative was some of the room furniture was getting a bit wore, but overall very good hotel

This is simply a lovely hotel. Small enough to be cozy and friendly, but large enough to have an on-site restaurant and bar. My room was on the bay and the view was wonderful. Coffee on the balcony in the mornings was a real treat. All the food I had from the restaurant was excellent, plus Hammerhead's Bar and Grill is right across the street. The staff was helpful and friendly. I've travelled extensively so I'm not easily impressed with hotels...The Lighthouse Inn impressed me.
