We spent four nights last week at the Surfside Inn and Suites in Rockport. When we go to this part of the Texas coast, we usually stay in Port Aransas. But, since this was in the summer, and not the Fall season when we usually travel, we decided to not spend the money on the over-priced rooms in Port A, so I found this place after a search on the 'net.
We got a King bed room with a Kitchen for 69.00 a nite plus tax, and one of these nights was a Friday night, so we paid only 20 extra for the weekend rate.
The motel appearance can be deceiving. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The A/C worked very well, and we were impressed by how well appointed the room was.
The pool was cool and clean, and the fishing dock is new and alot of fun to fish from. They put some thought into it's construction to make it very fishing-friendly. The part of the bay (Little Bay) that it is located has some great fishing and we even saw a dolphin at night within just a few feet of the pier. The entire pier is very well lit with some high intensity lights that shine into the bay to help attract the bait fish the bigger fish feed on.
It may look like a cheap motel, but it is what it is - a clean comfortable room at a very fair price with a friendly staff in a quiet corner of a usually quiet sea town. We will definitely be going back.
