“Not the Cleanest Place, but Affordable and Great Location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2010

We recently stayed at Hunt's Castle for a family vacation. We chose to stay here for the location, affordability and ammenities. We were very close to downtown and the beach and only 30 miles from Corpus Christi and 10 miles from Port Aransas. The suite had two rooms, a large bathroom, full size refrigerator and oven, microwave and cable TV. The WiFi was hit or miss. The place was not super clean, they were not very generous with the towels or toilet paper and we had quite a few bugs. It is a good place if you are not concerned about luxuries or matching interior decorations.

Whenever we go to Rockport, we always stay at Hunt's Castle. The rooms are always clean and the pier is available for fishing. We caught a 3 foot shark and some large fish (Gav tops?) last time we were there. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.

We stay at Hunts fairly regularly. We enjoy the beautiful view,lovely pier,swimming pool and spa, and clean rooms. Hunts is a wonderful place to bring the whole family or a get away for two. The staff at Hunts are always friendly, and eager to make your stay a pleasant and memorable one.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were basic but spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable. We had a recliner in our room which made us feel right at home, especially when watching TV at night. Great spot for a fishing getaway. Nice, quiet location. Husbands loved it.

If you're staying at Hunt's Castle for mostly a fishing experience on their pier, which I do, then you can probably overlook the shower stalls that leak onto the floor, the leaky toilets, and the non-working stoves, etc.etc.. But you must be made aware that on Sunday evenings (and probably on into the weekdays) that the local residents start to invade the property ( apparantly at the permission of mangement). The pier does not have a locked entrance gate and during my last trip in April '10, I personally saw at least two vehicles pull up and park on Hunt's Castle property right adjacent to the pool and right across the street from the pier. These people actually got into the pool and commenced to having a jolly good time, and then several others walked out onto the pier and succeeded in monopolizing the entire section of the end ("T" section) of the pier thereby disallowing the best fishing spots for paying residents. I walked out to the end of the pier about an hour before dark to be friendly to these people and see if there might be room for my son and myself to fish. I was very quickly told to "shove off" in so many words, that there was no room for us. I asked management about this situation during checkout the next day, and I was told that "these are guests from our other location." I asked, but was never told where this mysterious "other place" is located.The neighboring Condo just down the road has higher rates compared to Hunt's castle, but the gate on their pier is locked, their rooms are 10 times better, and they cater to their paying customers, not to non-paying, rude, local residents.

Our Family Loved the spacious rooms, easy access to the parking area, pools and loved the pier. The fishing was great!!! The pool was nice ahd relaxing and I loved sitting on the balcony overlooking the water front. We rented a nice size suite for a fairly low price with a full size kitchen and dining table. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return and stay at Hunt's Castle and will refer this location to all our frien's and family.
