They boarded the charter bus in total suspense of their final destination. As we traveled TX 35 no one guessed Rockport but were delighted on arrival to see the little gem called the Lighthouse Inn. We were greeted by our group sales contact, Angie and her front desk team for an expedited check-in. In minutes we were in our rooms... More

Very friendly staff. The room was quiet and clean. There were no fake fragrances to mask the smell of being close to the water like I have experienced while staying in in other hotels. It is decorated to represent an older, relaxed era. Breakfast was adequate except I might have preferred a cinnamon bagel to a plain bagel. My only... More

She reminds me of a elegant lady that's a little frayed around the edges but still a very lovely hotel and the wonderful staff more than make up for a little chipped paint. The housekeeping staff do a wonderful job at keeping the hotel and rooms so clean and are so friendly and helpful. The outside grounds are immaculate! with... More

I love this Inn. We arrived very early but they went ahead and let us check into our room. We had a suite with a bay view on the 3rd floor. The views from our balcony was breathtaking. This Inn is very clean and the grounds well maintained. We had the best time fishing from their private pier. Noone else... More

We were heading for Corpus Christi but ended up in Rockport instead and we do not regret a second. (We drove to CC and found out that we had a stroke of luck when we thought it was too expensive to stay there - CC is boring and to big in our opinion) The hotel is ideally located on the... More

First the good: Excellent front desk, breakfast area folks. Great Bay view. Now the bad: ZERO, and I mean ZERO internet. It's the worst ever. Rooms are DATED, and smell of mold. I left with a nice headache. My recommendation is to stay at Hampton Inn and when you need the "bay fix" come over and have a glass of... More

8 mornings in February, we woke up to a view of the Gulf and beautiful water fowl. Our room had a patio with rocking chairs. The Inn staff were helpful and very friendly. Breakfast and dinner were adequate, but great restaurants were in walking distance.

We are regular visitors to the Port Aransas/Rockport/Fulton area for many years now. We usually choose Lighthouse Inn as our base as explore the nearby area and we have not been disappointed so far. The location is wonderful and the service is always friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included and it is always good. We usually are out and about... More

We have stayed here on numerous occasions and had looked forward to staying again. The hotel is declining. The rooms need paint, wood work, and deep cleaning. The phone did not work, there was no iron in the room so I went down to get one and the one the gave me did not work. The air conditioner is VERY... More

Service is great Breakfast and dinner at the Palm room is very good. The pool is nice and the board walk is wonderful. The rooms are not nice at all for the price. We have stayed 3 times in the last 90 days. It's time to try something new.
