“Fishing Good = But the Keepers were out at Sea”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Management has taken the lights off of the south facing side of the pier where most of the bench seats are located, and the side where the best fishing used to be. The fish cleaning station is non operative, as the hand water pump has been removed; although it is evident that some have cleaned their fish on the table leaving behind a dried up layer of fish parts and scales for the flies to live on. Bring your own light source as well in order to rig your gear and to remove fish you have caught, as there are no lights illuminating the pier or T-head. The hotel is really a glorified motel with very, very little service. They leave clean towels and empty the trash cans but that is about it. We did get an upgrade but the phone did not work and it took 4 days to get a light over the sink with no cover. My son and his wife had another room which had no night stands in their bedroom, and had to place their bed side things and alarm clock on the floor next to the bed. Their room also had a shattered window facing the water front view with duct tape holding it in place; this was not just a crack, but a large 'star-burst' extending the entire length and width of the window. They also advertise free wireless internet, but you can not get a signal on the third floor, management told my son that some guests can get a signal, but there is NO signal.

Room Tip: Excellent fishing location. Could be an excellent fishing pier..

This hotel is not fancy, but its comfortable, is priced very reasonably and has really good amenities. The fishing pier is great. It has waterfront picnic tables with BBQ pits, a nice pool and a large hot tub. Good location too. We're staying again in two weeks since we had such a good time.

I had the pleasure of staying at Hunt's Castle on a last minute fishing trip with some of my best friends. I was blown away at how great everything was! The room we had was big, clean and had a great view of the bay. The boardwalk was killer. Great place to catch and grill. I highly recommend Hunt's Castle to anyone looking to stay in Rockport.

Great place every time we go to the coast we stay at this place. We aren't even fishing and it still fun. Awesome pool and every time we go there is something new. The dock is a quarter of a mile. The suites are huge and clean.
