“Nice Pier”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2014

I decided to visit the Gulf on a whim - booked a last minute room that also happened to fall on Memorial Day weekend. The price was incredibly fair concerning the timing and the location - $120 for a King sized bed. The normal fare not during peak times is considerably lower.

The inn itself is a bit older, the rooms basic, but everything has been remodeled. You can tell the frames and the insides of the rooms have recently been repainted, and the bathroom is freshly remodeled, as well. I opted for the most basic option, which was a King-sized bed with a desk, dresser, nightstand, and flat screen TV with basic cable. Free WiFi. Don't expect pure luxury, but the rooms are fine for the price, and no one spends much time in their hotel rooms, anyways. If you do, you're doing it wrong.

The best part? A nice, long, lighted private dwarf that stretches out into the key. You can sit outside and fish with a beer. I saw quite a few people catching trout, drum, catfish. I would return.

We stayed here for 5 days during our vacation in late October. This was an excellent base location since we travelled to the National Seashore, Goose Island State Park, Mustang Island State Park, Matagorda Bay, and Corpus Christi. The room was clean. It was quiet. We enjoyed fishing on the lighted pier. The kitchenette was well equiped and useful for storing our drinks and food. Great water pressure in the shower. It is located close to eateries and Walmart. The rates are great for this area. We plan to stay here again when we return to the area.

My husband and I just got back from a 3 night stay here, and we loved it. Just perfect for us. Room was nice and clean and we totally used the kitchenette. A big plus for those of us on a budget. Fishing pier was one of the nicest we saw. Lit with benches, fishing rod holders and fish cleaning station. The pool and picnic areas were well done and kept up nicely, even with all the recent south tx rains. The staff was nice, friendly and helpful. Sure, they had rules on turning pier lights off and which trash container to use for what, but hey wouldnt you? As we were playing dominoes by the pool on one of the tiled tables, I wouldn't want there to be rotting fish bait in one of the containers in the pool area. As for previous negative reviews I would like to say this. 1- yes, the parking lot needs work. 2- tax rate in Rockport is high, but the hotel owners have no control over that. 3 - the staff was very nice to us, everything in our room worked well, and after researching I knew what to expect. My husband and I aren't fancy type people. We stayed here to fish and relax on a budget. The pool area was a bonus for us. We will definitely stay here again.

Got home from work friday (8/9) night and decided to make a last minute trip. Called and booked a room and arrived at 11:15pm. Room was ready and clean. Motel has been remodeled and was better than most of the hotel rooms in Rockport. Only complaint was the beds were small and soft. Bathroom was updated and was refreshing after being out on the bay all day. Pier was new and kept clean.

If you travel to Rockport you will find older hotels that are cheap or newer hotels that are over-priced, there is no in between, the last place we stayed (July 26-28, 2013) at we paid $270/night for a condo and upon arriving there were all sorts of guys on their tailgates drinking beer, which gave the feel of a 'fish camp' rather than a family condo resort.

Only negatives for us was the bed issue and no really good area to park our boat.

My aunt and uncle stayed at this hotel for two nights in July of 2013 (I am writing this review on behalf of my aunt, as she has trouble typing).

Owners were so polite and helpful. My aunt is in a wheelchair and needed a handicap-accessible room. The rooms were clean, newly remodeled, had a microwave, mini fride/freezer, sink, large flat screen, table with two chairs, and electric stove top.

Not to mention, the swimming pool was heated and had a lift so that my aunt could be lowered into the pool and enjoy it like everyone else. Lots of covered picnic benches next to the pool. They also had a new pier; it was huge, lighted, had a washing station, and so many benches-which my uncle loved. He even saw dolphins one morning while he was out fishing!

Place is close to everything. We will be recommendeding this place to all our friends and family and look forward to staying here again.

Would NEVER stay at this rat hole again.
The bed was uncomfortable.
The whole room smelled bad.
I must have been there on the end of their 2 or 3 year cycle of shampooing the carpets.
Had a $8.50 rip off "booking fee".
The owners are pretty pathetic when you ask for help on anything also.

Room Tip: My tip to choose a good room is to go elsewhere.
