this is our third year staying for the thanksgiving holiday at the laughing horse lodge. we love it, love it, love it! It's funky, close to the beach and the hosts are very helpful. When our car got stuck in the sand on Thanksgiving, they towed us out (maybe they wouldn't appreciate us advertising that), but you'd never see that...

My wife and I meet her family in Port Aransas for the Thanksgiving holiday and have stayed at Laughing Horse twice. It's an older property - probably from the 40s or 50s - and has all of the character and charm you'd expect from a non-chain motor inn. The service is exceptional and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and clean....

This was our second trip to the Laughing Horse this year. Love it, love Port A, Had the same cabin both times this year, fully equiped, lots of dog items...bowls, treats, towels etc. Very convenient, across the street is a great little restaurant (Shells). Will be back again next year (at least once).

We had this place recommended to us by a number of people and they were all right -- it was perfect. We appreciated having the kitchen fully stocked with dishes and the bed was beyond comfortable. The location was nice, too, allowing us to walk most places while we were on the island. In November, it was incredibly quiet and...

Stayed in an efficiency room which was adequate for 2 adults and 1 dog. Overall it's a different kind of place that is clean and comfortable. The service is good. If you have a dog, they welcome them readily with pickup bags, food/water bowls and a towel. I do recommend that if you are bringing your pet along to pack...

I've stayed here numerous times, but this time went with my 20ish kids and my granddog. Service, communication and cleanliness of the rooms was excellent. You can walk to the beach from here or enjoy your little patio area outside. Great location and we'll definitely be back. The cottages are older buildings, but are all different and colorful.

This was our first trip to the beach with our dog. A Laughing Horse Lodge was very dog friendly and they gave us all sorts of information and ideas for things to do with our mutt. The place is also very close to the beach and several shopping spots and restaurants.

I was referred to this spot by a client. We had already pegged it prior. We arrived and loved it so very much. The staff could not be any nicer and hospitable. Rachel, Candy and Phillip!!
