“Fun and Funky”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at A Laughing Horse Lodge. We liked the fun and funky decor. It is within walking distance to the beach and a lot of the shops, restaurants and bard in Port A. The staff were friendly and helpful and when we forgot what day we were to check out they graciously called to remind us and allowed us a little extra time to gather our things and check out. We like places with cooking amenities so the kitchenette and grill were much appreciated. We will come here again the next time we stay in Port Aransas.

Just got back from a very relaxing stay in Port A. Laughing Horse is the perfect place to stay while at the beach. Location, amenities, cleanliness and friendliness. This was our third time staying at Laughing Horse. They have redecorated with bright, beach colors...so nice. Can not wait to head back that way in the fall!

What the property lacks in fancy amenities it makes up with charm. Who needs a pool and fitness facility when you're visiting a beach? My three daughters enjoyed their room complete with bunk beds and they had plenty of room to play. The kitchenette had most everything I needed (except a baking sheet); we didn't dine out a single time. I did enjoy sitting and sipping wine in the evenings in the Adirondack chairs provided in the sand patio area. It was nice to be within walking distance to the beach and to shops. We will definitely stay here again.

bring your kids, bring your dog, go with your partner, or go alone. This is the place to be. Walking distance to the beach. Fabulous service. Thoughtful amenities. Kitchen is stocked with everything you could need- even a blender! My 3 year old thinks it is our beach house. We love it! Always clean, always comfortable. Air works great and quickly. We love staying in Crazy horse because the kitchen is large enough for a pack n play and then our son sleeps in his own room. So we can stay up and watch movies in bed, drink a margarita, and eat popcorn. They even let us replace our towels after a couple of days because we went through them so fast and needed some new clean ones that were not soaked. Ahhhh traveling with kiddos.

Room Tip: Read the room descriptions carefully to get just what you need. Most rooms do not have a living room...

I wanted to find a place for my husband and I to spend our 1st anniversary that was memorable, affordable and out of the ordinary. This is the place! It was fun, friendly and comfortable. Candi at the desk was outstanding, and helpful when it came to restaurants and places to go. We didn't bring our 4 legged kids with us, or even our 2 legged; but next time we come, we will bring them all! Thanks for a great vacation!!

We loved this hotel and the owners definitely cater to dog owners and dogs. If you are a high society uptight person who only stays in fancy hotels you will not like this place. The rooms are very clean and decorated with fun colors and each one has a different theme. If you like funky decor and a place that feels more like staying at a friends cabin than a hotel this is the place for you. It is very close to the beach and also close to excellent restaurants. I would highly recommend La Playa for Mexican, Shells for Italian and Cody's for bar food. They were all great and served excellent food. There is also a very nice Catholic church down the street which has a beautiful rosary garden. There is even a fish cleaning area and dog washing area set up.

My husband and I have been staying here with our fur baby since 2004. We chose this place because they focus on being pet friendly, and we were hooked. We never stay any place else. The owners and staff are very friendly and want your stay to be stress free. Through the years they have added cart rentals, a dog bath, and you can purchase bags of ice at the front office. The staff places doggy bowls, doggy bags and towels, and even a few snacks. We stay in one of the rooms on Trojan street which is quiet, and you can pull right up to your room. Also, each room has their own bbq pit and outside patio area. We love to grill. Some rooms have kitchenettes which makes it easier to have everything you need already in the rooms. The Laughing Horse is just a block or two from beach marker #1. You can walk or drive whichever you prefer. Shell's is across the street, Port A Pizza is just a hop, skip and a jump as well as Stripes. As long as there is a Laughing Horse, that's where we will stay.
