“Beware-don't waste your money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2011

One of the worst hotels ever for >$100 a night. Very old lumpy bed, ripped linens, old ripped carpet with mystery stains. The only housekeeping service they provide is clean towels- they do not make the bed, change linens, vacuum carpet or clean up bathroom. Truly a horrible stay. They get your money up front so luckily we only planned to stay for 2 nights. Would have rather slept in the car-it was much cleaner!

My husband and I have been staying at Laguna Reef for years and have always enjoyed our stay. We went last weekend to Rockport and stayed of cours at aLaguna Reef expecting the same friendly service that we have always had. Instead we were treated very rudely and found out that the hotel had new owners and new management policies. Instead of feeling like home away from home we were made to feel that we were just an inconvenience to the staff at the front desk. We did however learn that another management company will soon be taking over and hopefully things will go back to the way they used to be. The whole weekend was spoiled by the attitude of the staff at laguna Reef.

The only thing descent was the fishing off the pier. Some of the staff looked friendly but I found one to be rude "Timothy". The carpeting in the room was torn across, one bed was leaning toward one side, and the room was humid, even with ac running. My room came with a portable humidifier. Not a good stay. I didn't even bother to change rooms. Spent $218.00 for two nights. My other family members had similar problems and changed rooms. Others just didn't check in and stayed else where. Not worth the money and regretted not staying at the holiday inn express. If they have to change your room, forget it.

I have been staying at Laguna Reef for the past 25 years. When my husband and I got married in 2001 he started coming to Rockport with me and we still stay at Laguna Reef. We have stayed between the two of us in almost every motel/hotel in Rockport and always come back to Laguna Reef. Love the location, hot tub is the best ever and the view of Aransas Bay is amazing. Rooms need updating, but they are clean and spacious. Thanks for a relaxing weekend!

I visited the end of Jan. '10, early Feb. for some warmth (I live in PA) and birding. It was cooler than usual, in the '50s, but the birding was very good, especially seeing the whooping cranes. The Laguna Reef was a good place to stay-inexpensive, clean, right on the bay (good for fishing and birding). Great view from my balcony over the bay. Also near the main drag in Rockport, with shops and art galleries. The staff was friendly and helpful. Good, simple 'continental' breakfast provided-not just some rolls and drinks, but different muffins and even cold cereal and yogurt. One criticism: the walls are thin, I could hear the people and TV from next door. But since I was out much of the time this was a minor problem ( and only in the living room, not in the bedroom). All in all a good place to stay, and a good trip.

I want to start by stating the staff was great and friendly, but thats were it stops. Check in around three, three famlies, bottom floor, three rooms~ mold growing on the walls, on the mattresses (side), towels hanging in bathroom were dirty! One room if you change the tv channel the air conditioner would turn off, all plug ins in one room were plugged in to one circut board~ fire hazard~, all mattresses old and nasty and sagged in the center. Carpet in these rooms was either torn or smelled and the cobwebs under the tables in the rooms was scary! This next statment may be seasonal but the saltgrass mosquitos and the crickets in the rooms ,and Iam not talking 4 or 5, were plenty to keep you miserable. It is obvious this place has no mantience, and the owners are only interested in the high prices they charge! My daughter and grandsons checked out that night, we check out next morning no choice, We will not come back.

We absolutely loved our stay - so much that we stayed an extra night. The price is great for what we got - a 1 bedroom on 2nd floor right over the pool. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Room was very nice and loved the full kitchen. Very nice and new fridge and oven.
Pool and hot tub are awesome! Great complimentary breakfast too.

Daughter was thrilled to find so many nice sea shells out on the private beach area by the very nice pier.

Though I do agree that the fold out sofa bed was quite uncomfortable, my daughter was fine sleeping on the sofa w/o opening it up. The bed my husband and I slept on probably could use a new mattress too but was not too bad.

Only thing about the chaise loungers by the pool was that the adjustable backs dont stay up on their own. But they work just fine with the back propped up against the pool fence.

Not too crowded and all the folks we ran into there were nice and friendly, as were the pets that are allowed.

Less than a mile to Rockport Beach. Very quaint and quiet little town. We will definately stay at Laguna Reef again!
