We have received much more for the price that we even expected; staff was super nice and helpful, rooms clean and funky. The little houses give you more privacy than the rooms, have a few chairs in front and a barbecue pit.Overall: very satisfied and happy with my choice.

We stayed over Christmas week in #7. Convenient to the beach and restaurants. Kitchen was well appointed with salt, pepper, dishsoap, even wineglasses. TV had both cable and a DVD player. Comfortable king size bed, great towels. Many things were just a little bit better than I expected.

Minor quibbles: The provided coffee was bitter. Internet was slow sometimes. Sand burs in the grass and a couple of bugs, both closer to the front door than the kitchen, can almost be expected at the Texas beach. A radio and a tide chart would be handy.

We have made many trips to Port Aransas, but this was our first stay at ALHL. The staff is the strength of this place as they were way friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The cabins are old, but it is obvious the owners have taken care of them and they were decorated in a very fun way. They were clean and had everything we needed for a week long stay (including appliances and flatware). If you have dogs, this is the place. They bring new meaning to pet friendly. They brought us food bowls and even treats for the dogs. They have a nice area to take the dogs to "do their business". They provided tags for just in case the dogs got away. The tags would direct a finder to call or return the dogs to them. They would even go pick up the pets from the finder if necessary. The location was very nice as well. Right on a major street that leads straight to the beach (2 blocks away). Obviously we would recommend these cottages.

This was my first visit to A Laughing Horse Lodge. Myself and a girlfriend stayed 2 nights in November. It was love at first sight! The lodges are super cute! We stayed in A Painted Pony which is an efficiency, just enough for a quick weekend getaway! Great location and parking availability as well. The office staff is extremely nice and accommodating. I can't wait until I can bring my boyfriend with me! I want to stay in another suite simply to see what the others look like! I was referred here by a coworker and I will definitely be recommending this place to others.

This weekend was our 10th or so visit to Laughing Horse. We obviously love it! We've visited with friends and with our chocolate labs over the years. This was our first visit with our baby, a 3-month old, and it was just perfect. It's location is great, staff WONDERFUL (thank you, Marianne and Candy!), and everything cute and super clean. It was great going during the off season, where it wasn't too busy on the beach. We stayed in 2A Hobby Horse. It was one of our favorite cottages. It was great to have the extra bunks for the baby's stuff and our luggage, though it will also be great when he is older and can sleep on the bunks himself with his friends or cousins. No oven, but we didn't need it. The shower water temps are backward and has to run for a while to get hot water, but we didn't mind it one bit. Another great stay at Laughing Horse--thank you!! (PS Book early, as they fill up quickly!)

Spent 2 nights in one of the cottages w a full kitchen (3b - Pony Tale). This place has an excellent location right near the beach and shopping all with affordable prices. Loved being able to cook and BBQ our own food to save money on eating out. Our dog had everything she needed including a little pet "return to" tag in case she got lost. Staff was friendly and our room was clean and had everything we needed in it. Kitchen was very well stocked which impressed me. Definitely will stay there on our next Port A vacation. Great place, definitely will recommend! A+++

My husband & I plus our daughter and another couple with their daughter stayed here last year for our trip to Port A. It came recommended by a co-worker and we were not dissapointed. This funky little place was just what we needed for a few days at the beach. Unfortunatly we didn't get to go to Port A this year but we will next year and we will stay at A Laughing Horse. Some small upgrades, like new shower curtains and fixtures would jazz the place up, but again, this an out of the ordinary place and if you're looking for ritzy giant rooms and matching expensive china, than one really needs to go somewhere else. Other than that I would highly recommend this unique gem of Port A.
