Cottage was practical for our stay. Room only used to sleep,eat and shower..N0 entertaining. Great dog friendly place with great location... Check out their web site, it says it all. Nothing fancy but practical.

The cottage was exactly what we expected and we really enjoyed our stay. These are older buildings, so are not going to be perfect, but are well maintained, very cute and unique. We had privacy, a nice outdoor patio and were very close to both the beach and town. Our cottage was also very clean. Beds were comfortable - nice...

We visited Port Aransas for a few days in December. Room is nothing fancy and we found it to be practical, clean and quiet. Small kitchenette available if needed. Beach is a short 2 block stroll away. Flat screen TV and free WIFI. Dog friendly, perfect place if you are traveling with your fur babies.

My wife and I wanted a pet friendly place near the beach to stay on our recent trip to Port Aransas, and booked two nights at the Laughing Horse. The rates and pet policy and fee were very reasonable and it is about two blocks from the beach. We booked one of their smaller rooms, 1A, and while we enjoyed...

We had never been before. Have stayed in a variety of different rentals in the past from hotels to motels to condos in the area. We had driven by many times and always intrigued. We especially liked the fact that dogs are welcome. We stayed in unit 7 with 4 people (2 adults and 2 kids) and 3 dogs. It...

The prices are very reasonable for a fun, older motel near the beach. Lots of colorful, quirky, fun cottages and the staff are wonderful. The motel is right across the street from one of the best seafood restaurants in Port A. Highly recommend!

Stayed at LHL Oct 27 - Oct 30, 2016. We stayed in cabin 14 The Ranch House. What a cool place. Everything was great. The A/C worked well, the beds were comfy, as always, everything worked. The beach is only 2 blocks and this was great, while I drove my 85 year old mom to the beach daily, the rest...

Our cabin had two bedrooms and plenty of space. Clean, wifi and TV. This is a very dog friendly facility. They even provide dog id tags so if your dog is lost he/she can be returned to the laughing horse. We will be back.

Doggie bowls, towels, treats and a bath station are just some of the amenities you will find for your best fur buddy. If you have been to coastal areas you know grass burrs are everywhere. A Laughing Horse Lodge has a large grass area with NO STICKERS! Rooms are uniquely decorated,have everything you need and are clean and comfortable. We...

We go to Port A several times a year and stay at Laughing Horse. We first went there because they are dog friendly but have continued because the people, employees and other guest are friendly. It is in walking distance to the beach and to downtown attractions. It is not fancy, but is a clean reasonably priced family home away...
