“Family Get Together at Lighthouse Inn in Rockport”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We couldn't have been happier with the accomidations for our family get together of 3 cousins from various parts of Texas. The weather was terrible, cold and wet. However, we enjoyed reconnecting in the lobby and all weather porch looking out over the water. It was like home away from home. The rooms were on the first floor with small porches where you could sit and enjoy the water view. I am sure we will return in the future inspite of our 6 hour drive to Rockport so we can take advantage of this and the gazebo on the water. Our room included an "L" shaped full kitchen connected to the livingroom with large waterside windows and a door to the porch. There was a hideaway, two chairs and a large amoir that held the TV, stereo CD player and DVD player as well as a chest of drawers. The bedroom had plenty of storage, a plush bed, and another TV with a DVD player. You could look over the water from the large bedroom windows or go out to the porch rockers. The bathroom was big and clean with a tub shower combination.

Breakfast on the all weather porch included a large offering of warm and cold breakfast foods. Delicious! Coffee continued to be offered in the lounge through out the day.

I would highly recommend the Lighthouse Inn. It offers a lot for the money and one could spend a week or a month comfortably.

The best thing about the lighthouse is its location just feet from the sea.Make sure you get a room with a sea view and watch the dolphins and oyster boats come and go,We stayed in a ground floor suite and although the furnishings and bathroom were a bit dated that was more than compensated for by the space ,view and 'homely feel'. The buffet breakfast was fine and again was even better because of the views of the bay. We also had dinner in the Palm Grill and although the menu is limited, to steak or chicken with a jacket potato and salad it was really tasty.
Bar was great ice atmosphere and friendly staff. All in all a nice place much better than the anonymous chain hotels and we would definately go again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a sea view on ground floor

We stayed two nights and were not disappointed. Although some of the furnishing are showing their age (e.g., we had a headboard fall down when I leaned lightly on it while watching TV; the headboard mounting was fixed by the maintenance man in quick order), everything seemed to work just fine. The location is great and very convenient to the whooping crane tour that we took on the Skimmer. We enjoyed watching the fish swim by over the under water lights stationed off the pier after dark. The breakfast buffet is good and all of the hotel staff were very helpful! We would definitely stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am disappointed that the headboard fell down but I am pleased that our maintenance staff handled the situation and fixed the problem quickly. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed your Whooping Crane tour with Captain Tommy Moore on the Skimmer. The birding this time of year is incredible. Thank you as well for your comments about the hotel staff being helpful. They work very hard to provide high-quality customer service and appreciate being recognized for doing so. We all look forward to your next stay.

We had the privilage of staying at the Inn for two delightful days and nights. It has a wonderful view of the bay, great fishing poer and gracious staff. The food at the bar in the evening was just wonderful. Morning breakfast is complimentary and quite a good selection. We are already planning to return later in the year.

Room Tip: The lower ocean view rooms have a nice view. We opted for the pool side and had a beautiful garden v...

Special rates make it affordable to take a wonderful winter break. Our room was well appointed, quiet and clean. Service was excellent. Breakfast buffet was delicious. Bar service and restaurant food were great. My best advise is to get there before oyster season is over. Try the local fried oysters, shrimp and steak at the bar. All prepare with extreme care and attention to detail.

Room Tip: We did the pool view for lower price, but romance is on the bay side. The bay side is accessible to...

Thank you for this wonderful review. I am so pleased that you took advantage of one of our special rates. I have passed your comments along to the hotel staff. You kind words are greatly appreciated. Oyster season runs until the end of April so you still have plenty of time to come to Rockport and enjoy a dozen or two. We hope to see you very soon.

I love it here! As soon as we drove up, I was just so glad to not be in a chain hotel. It has the cleanliness and room amenities you expect from a chain, but also some real character. And then I strolled out to the bay side lawn ... it's just lovely out there (location-location-location!). If you are looking for a lot of "fun" ... well, keep in mind that my husband said, "Are you sure this isn't a nursing home?" I take that as a compliment for the Lighthouse Inn!
