Nice historic hotel with balconies overlooking the bay. Great hotel but room was not well cleaned at all. Stayed Mon-Fri and had daily housekeeping. Floors not swept or vacuumed 4 out of 5 days. Found items like Capri sun under bed and bobby pin on floor (Bobby pin stayed with us all week highlighting how the floors were not vacuumed),... More

We came and stayed at the Inn mainly because of the website amenities and pictures. All was misleading. The check in and room were nice. Bar/restaurant/lounge was small and not separated at all. Planned on 30 anniversary dinner in the "restaurant" however the lobby was so crowded with people (unsure if they were patrons or not, they were down in... More

The Lighthouse Inn was perfect! We had a great experience on our stay last weekend. Our boys loved the pool - in fact, we spent a good half of our first day just chilling at the pool. The breakfast was good, the hotel was clean and the staff was accommodating and welcoming. The location is nice too, next time I... More

Our quick trip to the coast this past weekend was such fun and our overnight stay at Lighthouse Inn so delightful that as we checked out, we made a reservation for a longer return trip.

It is probably difficult to maintain a hotel situated on the ocean. The location is great with balconies overlooking the water, just a stone's throw away. The hotel is a little shabby with dirt carpets and soiled upholstered furniture. We could hear people walking upstairs and voices from next door. The free breakfast has lots of choices with Texas shaped... More

We have stayed at the Lighthouse Inn off and on for many years and have always had a great experience. The rooms are well kept and roomy. We were there for the 4th of July and had a nice bayside room. The front desk staff is very helpful and friendly. I should say that all of the staff are friendly... More

We really enjoyed staying here. The fishing is lacking but we didn't expect to much. The staff is awesome and the service is great. Very nice place to stay for a weekend getaway with that special someone.

I cannot say enough about how much we love this place. So clean and such a comfortable atmosphere. EVERYONE (front desk, housekeeping, grounds, you name them) is so friendly and gracious. Again, we feel so at home here. This visit was my husband's birthday and we booked the "Weekday Romance" package. The flowers were so pretty, I admit I brought... More

Rooms updated. New management is making improvements. Restauarant needs more help. Very slow the night we were there, confused orders, customers left. The manager is aware of this and will try to hire more help. Lovely place and location. Have stayed here many times and will continue to do so. Right on the water!

My friend and I were there 2 nights. I had been there before but she had not. Our room was spotless, beds comfortable, bayside room. The white robes in the closet are always a hit. Love the big breakfast buffet - look forward to it each time. Coffee downstairs always available and is GOOD. Knew Angie from previous visits, but... More
