We were NOT prepared for the so-called "dining experience", expecting a fine meal and great service. Instead, we were greeted by the bartender, handed silverware (like in grade school or perhaps prison, but thankfully no tray), a laminated menu with 4 entrée items (shrimp fried, chicken, steak, shrimp grilled--how many restaurants can you recall by memory the entire menu?), and...

Our 4th stay here. It was wonderful. We relaxed while watching the Oyster boats. The shrimp boats. And the birds. Rockport has good restaurants & the sightseeing was great. Thanks to everyone. Steve & Jan Young

It's our first time here and loved it. We took advantage of the Valentine weekend special. The venue was quaint, cute and not "hotely" atmosphere. We arrived and were greeted by great customer service. We received a voucher for dinner and were told complimentary breakfast was served everyday. The view was amazing and rooms were clean. We received champagne, roses,...

We had a wonderful time this past weekend. The room and special gifts were wonderful. Your employees at the grill were the best. I think her name was Michelle, she is a workaholic!

I did have a lovely weekend for the sweetheart package. The only complaint was that my poolside room was NOT poolside. No view except a fence.

We stayed there for two nights. We had the King suite with kitchenette overlooking the pool. Unit was smaller than I expected, but very nice & well equipped. The whole place seemed well taken care of. We enjoyed the hot buffet each morning and the location on the water with a pier.
