"Great people 5/5! Very nice hotel, nice location but as we all know people make the difference and what a great staff. The view of the bay from the hotel is beautiful.. Looking forward to many more stays in the future."


"Perfect Anniversary Trip 5/5! We are avid travelers, but with Covid restrictions , we were looking for a safe, comfortable , and beautiful setting in Texas to celebrate our Anniversary. I chose Rockport because of the birding and chance to see Whooping Cranes. I was hesitant to book at the Lighthouse Inn because of a few negative reviews , but am SO GLAD that I decided to give them a chance. The location is perfect."


"Lighthouse inn in rockport Texas outstanding!! 5/5! Just recently stayed at the lighthouse inn in rockport Texas and had an excellent stay during these trying times. Our room was right along the waters edge which was very relaxing. The staff as well as the patrons were wearing masks as required in doors as is necessary during this pandemic, hand sanitizers readily available. Breakfast was to go and the tacos and kolaches were very good. Fishing at the private pier and along the sea wall was great"
