Enjoyed Most: The stay at Lighthouse Inn was very relaxing. The food in the restaurant was good and the bar service was good. Great views and a very nice pool. The staff was wonderful and we especially enjoyed Lindy at the front desk. She was very helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. Overall a great weekend getaway.

Enjoyed Most: Being on the water was fabulous! Outside of some cleanliness issues, we loved it!
Other Comments: Cleanliness of the hotel was definitely lacking. The floors were dirty. There was a shrimp tail that was apparently left from the previous evening in the dining room at breakfast. It was right in the walkway so it was easily in sight. The tables were nasty when you went to sit down. We always had to clean our own table before breakfast. Our friends' room was very dirty. Dirty washcloth on their bathtub that neither of them had used.

Enjoyed Most: Having stayed here before, we knew to ask for a first floor poolside cabin. We really enjoy the convenience of stepping out of our room right to the pool area and being able to easily come back to the room for drinks, snacks, etc.
Other Comments: Breakfasts as always, were great! All staff were very friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed Most: Pretty much everything. Friendly staff, good meals, excellent breakfast buffet, clean room and next to the pool.
Other Comments: I hope they do this special again.

Enjoyed Most: The hotel was quaint and older but very well kept. It was not too far of a drive to Port Aransas. The swimming pool was nice and clean. Being so close to the bay was great. We saw dolphins swimming right next to the hotel a couple of mornings. If it had not been cloudy, we would have had great sunrises to watch. Very clean hotel and friendly staff. They offered books to check out or trade in their little library and had puzzles and games available if desired. Great hours for the pool. Nice quiet area. Gazebo to sit under and relax and listen to the waves as they rolled in.
Other Comments: There was a mistake in the booking transfer. Upon check-in they had us down for only 2 nights vs 5 but were able to switch rooms around to accommodate our actual request. We arrived at 3:30 and rooms were not given out till the actual 4:00 check-in. The shower had very little pressure, especially for long thick hair for me and my daughters. The breakfast was good, however, it was the same every morning, so variety lacked there. Coffee and hot tea were available 24/7. There was a noticeable odor upon walking in, kind of like would be in older buildings; did not notice it throughout the rest of the hotel. Cannot comment on the restaurant for dinner as we did not eat there.

Enjoyed Most: The Inn is right on the water and has a nice pier with rockers at the end. Loved the free breakfast. The location is really great - lots of restaurants within walking distance. Rooms was nice with very cold A/C. Definitely going back!
