From checkin to checkout this hotel is a great place to stay. the buffet breakfast is great and always served in time for an early departure for birding or fishing. Would not stay anywhere else in Rockport.

Over spring break we decided to take a last minute trip to Rockport. We were lucky to find a couple of rooms open at the Lighthouse Inn at Aransas Bay. As we arrived the grounds and exterior of the building were nicely kept. The staff was very courteous at check in and had fresh baked cookies at the front desk....

My college-aged daughters and I wanted a laid-back, relaxing spring break trip without the college traffic. This hotel provides a mix of families, couples and retirees - NOT a 'party' type atmosphere - which was GREAT! The Lighthouse Inn was right on the water so we could soak in the sea breeze and the beautiful pool/hot tub at the same...

We stayed a month in a King Suite Bayside. The Inn is very clean and comfortable with excellent service. Our room and some others have been updated, so no complaints from us. The staff go out of their way to make guests feel at home. The only thing we would suggest is to improve the food service. Included hot breakfast...

My wife and I stayed at The Lighthouse Inn while we were birding in the area. While it had a little wear, we found it to be a very clean hotel and the rooms were comfortable and quiet. We had a room facing the water with a small private terrace with two rocking chairs. A great place to start the...

I appreciated how the Lighthouse Inn pays homage to the old hotels of Rockport with its decor and architecture. The lobby area showcases photos of some that were destroyed by hurricanes in the early 20th century. I enjoyed the vintage bathroom and coastal bedroom furnishings. ****Front desk called to check on us, which was nice. I had to ask how...

My husband and I came to the Lighthouse for an Anniversary Getaway. We went with the Romance Package which included a Steak and Lobster dinner. Although our steak and lobster was not the best, our waitress Jenna was super attentive and accommodating. We did not visit the Palm Room Bar and Grill for dinner for the remainder of our stay....

A great location. We had a bay view where we could watch the oyster boats come in with their catch. The public rooms are quaint and includes a library.
