Had a great time. Definitely recommend this hotel. Rooms are nice and clean. Great service and excellent management. Have to make another trip here. Loved my stay with my friends. Very fun time here. Continental breakfast was also great to us.

Room was not very clean, there was a terrible smell all night - almost as if there was a problem with the plumbing.. everytime the water was turned on or the toilet flushed... ewww... won't be staying here again.. which is too bad, the grounds area seemed really nice, and so were the people

Just got back from a one night stay at the Econo Lodge in Rockport. We were in town for the monthly Rockport Market Days. We vacation in Rockport every summer, and stay at Condo Resort, but figured it would be a better value to pick a place less expensive for a one night stay. The staff was friendly and very...

Mold in shower floor and shower curtain. I'm convinced they down own a cleaning product. Bed bugs. Roaches in my cousins room. We all deserted the hotel to sleep on the floor at grandma's house during thanksgiving. I tried to submit a complaint on their website and it would not allow me to select the date I stayed and I...

This place covers the 4 S's (Sleep, Shower, Shave and ...) and that is about all. While this place is a good place as long as you are not with the family or looking for a couples retreat. The room did have hot water to take a shower at least. The breakfast is good as well if you are not...

When I booked this I was determined to give it a full review due to the numerous poor reviews. I booked this during 2013 Seafair in Rockport, not for the fair but to go fishing. I had seen all the poor reviews, however I was going to be on the water most of the time and the room rate was...

I'll make it simple, stay away. It was really nice when it was a Best Western but now it's run down and in need of serious repairs and upgrades. Not what I expected from a major name. We were booked for 2 nights but checked out the next morning and decided that If I didn't get a refund I'd be...

We suggest the CEO of ECONO Lodge go 'under cover' as a guest in this Econo Lodge Inn & Suites in Fulton, Tx. Cons: Too many rooms were not clean, too many unpleasant surprises, grounds and parking are not well maintained, No TV and understaffed front desk/reception. Pros: Good hot breakfast. On Wednesday 2 Oct 2013 my Husband and I...

We visited Rockport, Tx for the first time and decided to stay at this motel. I read the other reviews and was a little leery to stay but we decided to book anyways because the price was right ($160 for a total of two nights). We were given a room in which the A/C didn't work and the room smelled...
