“Just Lovely”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

This was our second time to stay at Lighthouse Inn. Both times we had a bayside view, but this time we were on the third floor instead of the first floor. It seemed so much more private and was much more enjoyable. But that is just a personal preference. The room was nice and clean and the beds are very comfortable. They serve a nice hot breakfast with Starbucks coffee. If you love birds and the ocean I don't think you could find a better place in Rockport.

Thank you for this wonderful review. We have found that many of our guests prefer the upper floors for a better view across the bay. We do hope that you will make your third trip to your special place in Rockport very soon.

We met my parents here for a weekend getaway just last Sunday - the rooms are charmingly furnished, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, and hotel and grounds are extremely clean and invite guests to explore. After dinner (at Charlotte Plummer's), we strolled around the bayside of the grounds and walked out onto the private fishing pier - all of the other guests out that night were so friendly - we got to chat with many interesting folks from all over Texas and other states. What we enjoyed the most was the "coziness" of this boutique hotel - at the complimentary breakfast, folks from other tables would make pleasant comments to diners and we soon found ourselves enjoying breakfast with people would never have met otherwise. It's this atmosphere that keeps my hubby and me going back to the Lighthouse Inn!

Thank you for taking the time to right this wonderful review. I am so pleased that you and your “hubby” enjoy the atmosphere at The Lighthouse Inn. I enjoy walking thru the Palm Room during breakfast and watching complete strangers talking and sharing stories about their time at the hotel and what adventures they had in the Rockport Fulton area. We look forward to your many return visits to our hotel.

The Lighthouse Inn is a great place to stay! Not only are you right on the bay with a private pier for hotel guests use only, but the facilities are fantastic and the staff are friendly! The rooms are of good size and very clean. It was my first time to visit Rockport and the stay was just wonderful! My fiance and I will definitely come back to stay at Lighthouse Inn in the future!

For a beautiful place to get away and relax, I highly recommend this hotel. This is hands down my favorite place to stay in Texas. Get out and talk to the locals. Everyone in Rockport is friendly. The beaches are cleAn and quiet. Lots of play areas. The staff is perfect. Rooms are extremely clean.

We found the staff was accommodating and friendly. The bartender mixed great Margaritas and Cosmos. The suite was tight with a king size (very comfortable!) bed. The bay was steps from our first floor room with an inviting pier with seating. The pool, whirlpool and grounds were tidy and clean. Parking was ok, not plentiful. We would go back and recommend!
