“Birthday at Texas Jazz Festival weekend”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We have stayed here many times and we love it. It's quiet, friendly and clean. We love being near the water. The free breakfast is fabulous, Festival was in Corpus Christi, but we prefer to stay in Rockport. The atmosphere is so relaxing. The WiFi wasn't working, thats the only minus. We will be back.

Room Tip: Had a suite but prefer the regular room.

Thank you for writing this wonderful review about your most recent stay. I am so pleased that you chose to spend your birthday with us in Rockport while attending the Texas Jazz Festival in Corpus Christi. I hope you had a wonderful celebration. By all accounts the festival was a great success and a lot of fun. I appreciate you letting me know about the WiFi, we will stay on top of this to improve connectivity throughout the hotel. We look forward to your return visit.

We traveled here from CA to celebrate good friends Anniversery! We have a suite facing the Bay with a balcony with rocking chairs. So far it has been Rainey but no problem. The hotel is cozy and charming with a friendly bar in the lobby with great service and drinks, Complimentary breakfast buffet served from 6:30 to 9:30 am in a dining area looking out to the bay, very scenic and a pleasant place to start your day. Meeting in the bar in five minutes for a Martini!

Thank you for taking the time during your trip to write this wonderful review. We are hoping the rain will stay away for the remainder of your visit. It was a beautiful afternoon yesterday, once the front passed through. I hope that your friends enjoy their anniversary weekend. We hope that you will come back to visit again.

We stayed here twice this weekend. Friday night. Stayed with family Sat., & came back Sun & Mon nights. We like our room really cold so room 23 was perfect for us. Loved that had 2 doors to bayside, one from living/kitchen area, & one from bedroom. (If u have a guest their is privacy due to door separates living area from bedroom as well. We returned early afternoon &
# 23 not yet available so we were given #1. After moving in, discovered this room, though nice temp, would not achieve cold of room 23. Front desk quickly got us a key for 23 with no problem. Very clean. Actually tipped maid service because so nice. And after saw we did not use the decaf, we found they left us extra regular coffee (Starbucks). Very well maintained beautiful pool & hot tub/jacuzzi. The steps to the hot tub a little steep for us, but enjoyed. The rocking chairs on each porch had beautiful bay views. Chairs available closer to water where you can watch fish at night in colored underwater lights. For a party or family gathering, there are 3 or 4 rooms facing the garden area right next to the pool, with grills for cooking, tables & chairs on lawn area. When enjoying free breakfast buffet, watch for dolphins swimming in bay. Overall very nice visit. We hope to return.

Thank you for taking the time to write this wonderful review about both of your recent stays at the Lighthouse Inn. I am pleased the room 23 was to your liking and that the A/C unit kept you comfortably cool. I appreciate your kind comments about the housekeeping staff. They do work very hard to keep the hotel and guest rooms clean. They are very pleased to have been recognized. We ALL hope that you will return as well.

Loved our spacious room with kitchenette. From the rocking chairs on the patio just out our back door we could walk across the lawn to the bulkhead that stretched over the water. Underwater lights invite nighttime fishermen. The hot buffet breakfast was good. The bar was nice. We did not have dinner at the hotel because it is within walking distance of several restaurants.

Thank you for writing this wonderful review about your recent stay. I appreciate you sharing your pictures as well. Many caller ask if we are really “that close” to the water. We tell them we are and your picture just reinforce that. We hope that you will return to Rockport and The Lighthouse Inn very soon.

Location & view are up there with the best along the Texas coast. Our two room suite was cozy, nicely decorated and an excellent value. We had mentioned some problems in our first review which were annoying but not major. I told the manger about my concerns and she handled them in a most commendable way. Her charm and willingness to please figures strongly in this final rating, my willingness to return and whether I would recomend the Inn. I have already recommended the Inn to several friends and I am planning another visit in the spring.

Room Tip: Ask for a Bay view room. It is a bit more expensive but well worth it.

The hotel itself was beautiful because of the awesome view of the bay and the only hotel worth staying in Rockport. Check-in was great! Gloria had great customer service and was very friendly. Check Out was not as great. The room was Ok, It was very humid no matter how we adjusted the temp. Because of the humidity my asthma was acting up. We had roaches in the bathroom and kitchen, I did bring it to the attention of the Housekeeping Supervisor when I saw her in the hallway and she assured me it would be taken care of. I left to let housekeeping clean. I returned later in the day and yes the dead roach in the kitchen was picked up but later towards the evening I did see another roach in the bathroom. I also noticed the Palm Room, the same lady that was taking the order was also the cook? Well we noticed that and we left to another restaurant. Breakfast was Great!! Now was Check-out time... I brought up the problem to the Nita only for her to cut me off and continue talking about the cc charge. I guess she cared about collecting the money more.She didn't acknowledge the problem at all in fact it was Ignored!

Nice hotel. Decent size rooms, nice staff. The hotel bar was nice, we stayed poolside and loved it. Big pool and hot tub. The private pier was nice at night. Free breakfast in the morning, it was very nice with a great view of the ocean. Would definitely stay here again!
