the price and size of the room were excellent. but after the first nite we found out that the floor had probably never been mopped. walking around in the room barefoot or with socks in about ten minutes the bottoms were black i took pictures if you want to see them this is no lie. i have stayed at this hotel since it was built and before. i know they do not mop cause this morning while we were packing i observed the cleaning crew cleaning and never saw them once with a mop bucket. i saw a mop on their cart but never once did i see them use it. if u have babies or toddlers i would not advise letting them crawl around on the floors. the bathroom floor was actually sticky it was so dirty.door jams were cracked and falling apart. the microwave had so much rust on the inside i wouldn't even warm my dogs food in there. the pier is nice and the people were friendly the pool is clean but the hot tub was green. they either need management that looks at what the cleaners do or new cleaners all together i never even heard a vacuum running or anything while they cleaned. looks like all they do is change the sheets and put towels and toilet paper. this place is gonna start losing business if they don't clean better.oh and there was a plug with exposed wires not very safe for small children.

Arrived to find our reservation had not been forwarded by Expedia, although we had a confirmation number! However, we were given an upgrade for the same price. Our first impression was that the whole place needed a very thorough cleaning - thick dust on the fan blades, a loaf of bread left in a cupboard. The room was obviously meant for longer stays as there was a complete kitchen, but no cutlery, dishes, cooking pans etc. We did not require any of this, but ask about it if a long stay is planned. There was a full bed and bunk beds in our room - pefect for a family. By the time we left, we would go back in a flash! The staff was very friendly and helpful. A number of good restaurants were recommended. The best thing of all was the fabulous location. On a one way street, basically at the end of the road, and on the water, the hotel features a balcony all along the front with comfortable rocking chairs by each unit. Morning coffee sitting in the chairs, watching the gulls, and waving to the apparent "locals" walking their dogs or doing an early morning jog was a very memorable experience. We did not use the swimming pool or hot tub, but were able to look down on them and they appeared well-maintained and clean. The hotel boasts a private, 1/4 mile long pier with green lights that light up the water - and are a great landmark at night from far down the beach. We were easily able to find our way home! Walking out on the pier at night was the highlight of the stay. Everything was so quiet, including the people fishing who would suddenly appear out of the shadows, and who were actually catching fish! There are benches along the way. Chilly while we were there, but we noted the barbecue pits and tables as well as the kayak and paddle boats. If ever back at a warmer time, we'll definitely take a dust cloth and book for a longer time!

Room Tip: A room on the front is a must!

Need a little vacation. Last mintue decided to head to rock port. first place we stopped at was hunts castle. Front desk was fast,friendly and promt. Got to our room clean and comfortable. Sat outside our room on some of the greatest rocking chairs. Nice peer, great lighting that lite up ocean which made an breathless view of the water. Great sunset view. Only plan to stay for one night but loved it so much we stayed an extra night. Made reserv to stay again. 110% over all.

Very friendly owner but the place has the feel that the whole place has seen far better days and is on its last legs.
Rooms are extremely basic with 70s furniture, No bedside table or lamp. Exterior decor needs some basic landscaping and tidying up. Towels are small, overused, and inadequate. Didn't like the look of the pool and hot tub for health reasons.
Several of the neon-lit "Hunts Castle" letters on the side of the building were not working - looked ghetto at night.
Excessive partying from some white trash guests until 4am although I will give the owner credit for dealing with it after hours.
Again, very nice and helpful owner but the place needs significant investment/modernization.

Room Tip: Get a room on the top floor because even a six year old running around above you will sound like a h...

Mr. Ken was a great host, staff was attentive and knowledgeable of the area. Working for a 4 star hotel, I understand the value of the guest experience. Free coffee and pastries in the morning. A private fishing pier for hotel guest only and a view of the ocean with BBQ pits plus tables are just a few amenities I enjoyed, I hope to visit again in the summer.

This is the kind of place to stay if you like a friendly staff, fishing, outdoor music while having a BBQ, and a beautiful view. The location is convenient since the beach , bait shops, dining, and shopping stores are near. I look forward to visiting Hunt's Castle again on my next trip to Rockport.

Room Tip: waterfront efficiency fits 3 to 4 people
