Super martinis. Newspaper rack. Gift shop. Bar.

We visit Rockport 2-3 times a year and stay at this hotel each time in a room facing the bay. They have a pier you can fish from, and at night it's relaxing just being able to lounge in the chairs by the bay. Free breakfast (eggs, bacon or sausage, waffles, toast, fruit and cereal), along with a bar in the evening where you can order from a limited menu and have a few drinks. Rooms are clean but the decor is a bit outdated. We stay over and over again because you just can't beat the location and the ability to see the bay from your balcony :).

I would just like to tell everyone if you are going to the coast this is the place to stay. It was beautiful and right on the bay. The staff is wonderful and made you feel right at home and very friendly. Special thanks to Brian or making us feel like family and ensuring our stay was as carefree as possible. Our rooms were on the first floor and our view was amazing. We will deffinatley be returning as often as we can. Thank you once again.

Situated on the bay in Rockport, this little gem of a hotel has been a family favorite for years. The rooms are spacious & well decorated; the staff are attentive & friendly. Each room has a private porch or balcony complete with rocking chairs to enjoy the evening air. The pool and jacuzzi area is fully landscaped and well maintained. There are several outdoor areas to enjoy. A full complimentary breakfast is served daily, important if you are travelling with children or on a budget. Prices are a bit on the high side, but well worth it. Although the hotel has lost a little of its original sparkle, it's still one of my favorites.

Room Tip: Spend a little more to get a bayside room; it's worth it.

We were going to stay at the Holiday Inn on North Padre, but a co-worker suggested we stay at the Lighthouse Inn instead.

I thought at first we were making a mistake, not being on the beach. However, this was one of the best hotels we have stayed at in Texas and plan on coming back again.

We had a second floor room overlooking the bay. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony watching the fishing boats leaving and returning. Sitting on the bay at night time was very peaceful and relaxing. Breakfast in the morning was very good.

The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. We had no problems with our room and the peaceful atmosphere was very relaxing and enjoyable.

This is one hotel that we will definitely come back to when we celebrate our 30th anniversary next year.

The overall experience was great and family friendly. Dollar for dollar, this may have been the best place I have ever stayed. I have an executive level position in a company whereby I travel a considerable amount; therefore, I believe I have a strong basis for my comments.

The least desirable portion of my stay relates to making reservations and dealling with the front desk. The employees in that position fail to be friendly and/or make eye contact...at least the two times that I have stayed. Despite their general morose attitude, I overlooked that portion of the stay because the amenities e.g.pool, pier, breakfast, bar, location, comfortable rooms, etc. overshadow the first impressions. However, if I was just looking for a place to spend the night on business, I would search diligently for another place to stay.
