I chose this hotel for my first night in Rockport from reviews at TripAdvisor. I made advance reservations and requested a third floor room, as they are usually quieter. Check-in was fast and payment was requested in advance. The hotel is across the street from the beach and includes a long private pier. Exterior room entrances. My "efficiency" room was located in the back of the hotel and was a reasonable size, with a queen bed and a bunk bed set into the wall. The bed was rather firm and lumpy, but I slept OK until a thunderstorm woke me at 4:30. The Kitchen area included a sink, with coffee maker and an old microwave on the counter. The cabinets held a few dishes, but no coffee cups or coffee. The large refrigerator was filthy on top and was dirty and rusty on the outside. Other furnishings included bedside table with no lamp and a fairly comfortable platform rocker. A small round table with two chairs held the flat screen TV. The tile floor was chipped in places and not as clean as it could have been, judging from my white socks. Internet appeared to be available but I did not try it. Bathroom had shower and toilet, but I decided not to use the shower. Maybe it was just my room, but I was disappointed. Walking around the hotel, the rooms on the bayside looked nicer and the rocking chairs on the front walkways would be a nice place to sit and watch the bay. Although it was half the cost of the upscale hotels in the area, unless you are on a tight budget or really want to be "on the beach", I recommend spending more elsewhere and getting a lot more.
