My wife and I have always enjoyed going to Rockport to be close to the water as well as fishing. Most of the times in the past we have stayed at various condos in and around Rockport. This time we chose the Lighthouse Inn at Aransas Bay. We checked in on Monday afternoon and checked out on Friday around 11A.... More

We had been so excited to stay st the Inn as twice before we tried and they were completely booked. We checked in and shared our excitement with the desk clerk then went to the bar to have a drink. First drink was either free or half price. When we got the bill it was incorrect and we were fully... More

This was our first visit to the Rockport/Fulton area. We wanted to be near the water, but not overrun by the "beach crowd". I can highly recommend the Lighthouse Inn for this kind of getaway. We checked in on Wednesday, August 10th and checked-out Saturday, August 13th. We stayed in a 3rd floor Captain's Suite and couldn't have been happier.... More

We are a family of 4 and had a double queen room on the first floor facing the bay. It was very nice and convenient to everything. The pier gets a little crowded. The hotel is in walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and bars. We will definitely stay here again.

This was our first visit to the Inn - as well as first visit to Rockport in 30 years. We thoroughly enjoyed and recommend this property. We stayed in a king suite, nicely appointed with a bedroom, living area, fully-furnished kitchen and a private deck with rockers. A hot breakfast comes with the rate, which adds to the value. Lovely... More

Okay, it's a reproduction of a Victorian hotel. It's in the style of the hotels of yore, the Hotel del Mar, the Bay Side Inn and others. There's a feeling of family here. The service is prompt and very friendly. The mood is relaxed with a certain charm. We stayed in one of the bayside double queen rooms. The room... More

This hotel is beautifully decorated. We stayed here through a Travelzoo deal. I loved the lighthouse and rocking chairs on the porch. Our bedroom had a small balcony with rocking chairs as well. When you go in, it has a Victorian feel to it and you can see the windows overlooking Aransas bay. Our room was on the second floor... More

This was our second time staying here and it was just as good as when we stayed two years ago! The rooms are always clean and comfortable and even the rooms towards the street were quiet. My husband and I love to sit out on the dock at dusk and just relax in the rocking chairs overlooking the water. This... More

Really A Very Nice place. Rooms were large and common areas warm and inviting! Our room had a full kitchen with a full size refrigerator and freezer. If you wanted, you could eat in some and save some money. Although, the location is very convenient to shopping and many Great restaurants!! We will definitely be back!!!

A relaxing weekend at a quaint hotel. The sea vet room had a great view over the bay, ideal for chillin in the evening and watching Dolphins in the bay. The bedroom itself is ok, but needed to be spruced up a bit. A little pricey. We didn't eat in the hotel, but the bar is relaxing later in the... More
