We go to Port A several times a year and stay at Laughing Horse. We first went there because they are dog friendly but have continued because the people, employees and other guest are friendly. It is in walking distance to the beach and to downtown attractions. It is not fancy, but is a clean reasonably priced family home away... More

This was our second visit and, like the first, just found it to be a fun, pleasant place. Clean, friendly management. Great spot for dogs! Not fancy, but highly recommended. Would love to see more shady spots for sitting outdoors!

A wonderful place where staff was nice. Place was cozy and very clean. We brought our Great Dane and loved the basket just for her along with a large park-like place with soft grass for her to "do her thing". Also loved the dog wash station. Only several blocks from beach. Will definitely return.

This cool, kitschy place is close to all the main attractions in Port A. It's reasonably priced and clean. The kids loved the bunk bed nook in our cabin (and the free wifi). We will definitely stay here again.

Nice clean and eclectic place to stay. Very comfortable with kitchen and full size refrigerator. No pool, but then it is not a concern to us. Within walking distance of shops and restaurants and beach. Welcome pets.

Eclectic and beach style, 3 blocks from the beach. Highly recommend unless your expecting the Holiday Inn...this... More

Enjoyed our recent stay at ALHL. We've always opted for the high-end facilities in Port A, so who knew. No frills necessary -- all the amenities you need -- clean, convenient and a short walk to the beach, shopping, or food. Friendly and accommodating staff. Will visit again!

Just a short walk to the beach and you can't beat the prices! The Ranch was more than adequate for the 8 adults we had in our group. It is close to shopping and activities. I will recommend it to my friends and family.

We can't begin to tell you how super fabulous this little place is. Everyone including the dog enjoyed all the amenities. The staff was so friendly despite the 100 degree weather and patrons trying to check in early and check out late. We truly recommend this shabby chic little place for your stay in Port A. It'll keep you wanting... More
