Place looks so nice--and it’s in such a great location, on our favorite part of the Texas coast. Couldn't believe that our previous, so-so experience really had been representative. Turned out, we were luckier that time. When we went back again, less than a year later, we decided to go for broke (after all, it was only for the one...

We've been twice. Full rate bayside in summer, unfortunately with a loud wedding until well after 10pm right outside the bayside rooms. Not good. Otherwise the location and property amenities are great. We used a twofer coupon at Christmas, no wedding that weekend, and it was great. We had a meal coupon and ate one dinner in--and it was surprisingly...

Thank you for writing this wonderful review about both of your visits to the Lighthouse Inn. I am glad to see that you took advantage of one of the special promotions we had over the holidays.

We used a travel voucher from TravelZoo and were simply amazed at the value. Our suite, on the bayside was immaculate and beautifully appointed! Even without the delicious breakfast and cocktails and dinner, it would have been an amazing deal. The hotel itself is lovely, the staff is effecient and welcoming...the bar and restaurant should be a local favorite...deliciously dark...

Came for a holiday weekend with my husband. It was our first time on the Texas coast and I was looking for a hotel room with a nice view. The view of the water is nice but considering that it is not on the beach and the terrible condition of the hotel and rooms, I paid too much money. The...

Lindy was great, as were breakfast folk. Didn't eat at the bar, so can't comment. Heard from others that food was average at expensive prices. Our room #29 faced east to bay-front; door blind was 3" shy of covering glass at bottom, so we got very bright sun/water reflections as wake-up call both mornings! One of two hand-towels had hole...

This was our second time to stay at Lighthouse Inn. Both times we had a bayside view, but this time we were on the third floor instead of the first floor.
