Thank you for reaching out to us, but I am am not quite sure how you might be raising a maintenance issue at this time as the hotel has been shut down since the Hurricane in August of 2017. We hope to see you again once we reopen in 2018.

Our stay at the Lighthouse Inn could not have been better. The staff were courteous and helpful. Our room had 9 ft. ceilings, a full kitchen, a separate bedroom, its own private balcony, and was beautifully and tastefully decorated, quiet and clean. The Inn is located right at

We stopped in for an overnight stay on our way down to South Padre. Really enjoyed the hotel and views from the balcony. Also nice walk around the patio to watch the sun set. Rockport is a great little fishing town on the coast. Next time I am bringing a kayak and fishing in the

Thank you for the great 5 star review and of course for choosing the Lighthouse Inn on your last visit. WE really appreciate your business. Rockport is definitely a quaint little fishing town with lots of other things to do as well. WE very much look froward to your next visit.

Last week was our third visit. While there are probably nicer rooms in newer hotels, the view from our balcony cannot be found anywhere but right here. Full moon, with a picture perfect moonlight twinkling on the bay. Relaxing, good beds and linens. Great staff. Could use a

I don’t know if they opened yet. I think they were almost ready to open late last autumn. I think they will be ready for the best spring & summer season.

The Lighthouse Inn has not reopened yet. As I understand it, their website is now taking reservations for stays beginning in November. I’m unsure of the exact date of their reopening. I suggest you go to their website for details. Also be aware, when they first reopen, there may still be reconstruction work going on. I don’t know if they will discount their rates during this period when reconstruction is still underway. If not, you might want to wait until they are 100% finished with their rebuilding.

Sign up on their email list for special packages. I do take certain favorite cooking tools. The lighthouse is our place on the coast. Everyone is so friendly and helpful.

"Ask for a bay view room with a balcony."
"Bay side, any room. Rooms are smaller than they appear on the Web site but comfortable."
"Choose Bay side of the hotel, the views are great!"
"you can hear the people next door talking..Also the pool stays open until 11 so if your poolside beware there is gong to be a lot of noise."
"Say on first floor with bay view."
