We loved our little cabin and it was super clean...as the smell of Pine Sol nearly knocked us over as we entered the door. The decor was cute but a little tired. And the mattress was completely worn out! It sagged so deep in the middle that we both ended up with back aches. I really hope they will do...

It was a shame this happened. We want everyone to have an enjoyable experience and we devote extra effort to make it happen. After this guest left, the housekeepers went to clean and found the bed frame totally broken. We replaced the frame and the bed is now fine. I only wish our guest would have said something so we...

These are great cozy, comfortable and colorful beach cabins. Very pet friendly place, very clean and only a short walk to the beach. Mid week is less crowded on the beaches and around town. We'll be back

Candi and Ray run a great place. It's very pet friendly, and we slept soundly on the comfortable bed. Love the safari/beach decor!

When my parents came to stay with us during the week of 4th of July, we decided last minute that we all wanted to go to the beach. We were fortunate that the Lodge had a couple of cabins available for 2 nights, and so the 6 of us got a 2 bedroom cabin that sleeps 8. When we arrived,...

We were looking for a dog friendly hotel with a kitchenette. We only wanted to stay 2 nights and all the places in this area had 3 night minimum. After making some calls, I found that if rooms were available, they didn't hold firm to the minimum requirement. At first booking, we expected to have to change rooms. When we...

This was our second stay and loved it. The managers are friendly and there to help with anything you need. The place is super dog friendly and that was a major plus for us. As always each room is decorated cute and beachy.

I loved the pet friendliness of this place which included free treats, dog towels and food bowls plus a dog tag with location info in case they get lost and a list of dog friendly places. So its great if you are traveling with a pet. However I would not stay here if I didn't have my dog. AC was...

This is the second time we have stayed here, both times we have brought our 2 dogs. The management is very friendly and accommodates you in every way they can. They have a large (grassburr free) area for the dogs to do their business. The rooms are not huge but cozy, with everything you need in them ( microwave, fridge,...

A Laughing Horse Lodge bungalows were built in the 1940's & 50"s and have retained their charm. Not fancy at all but very, very clean! Because we travel with our dogs our hotel choice is limited in Port Aransas but ALHL allows up to three "friendly" and well-behaved dogs. The floors, walls and furniture are all painted in a bright...

"We're in Paradise!" a quote from my 6 1/2 year old granddaughter. These are little "cabins" with plenty of room and privacy. The rooms are painted with murals and colorful, plenty of nice plush towels, kitchen with all the utensils, stove & fridge. Air conditioning is great...so great that you could freeze yourself if you want to! LOL Everything was...
