The Lighthouse Inn is just reopening after recovering from Hurricane Harvey, so we didn't have the full Lighthouse Inn experience, but I was so glad they were even partially open, because it was a fantastic place to stay. The staff was all very friendly and welcoming. The rooms

Lighthouse Inn was just reopening after reconstruction from hurricane Harvey, with under 30 rooms available. The location was perfect for our activity of bird watching, and close to a choice of restaurants. The receptionist was most helpful. While not all amenities are yet

I had heard great things about this hotel in Rockport and tried to make it there with my family several times. Business kept getting in the way but last August (2017) we finally made it - just a few weeks before Harvey struck the Texas coast and badly damaged the place. I

Responded 12 Jan 2018
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.

When did you open again since Aug 2017?
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.

Has anyone been this summer? How are things after the hurricane? Thanks!
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.

"A guest room is converted into reception area. Restaurants are open in immediate area."
"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."
