A modern hotel that feels homey, thanks to nice decorative touches and amenities that are above average for a small chain hotel
Tucked in a peaceful tree-lined area, the Hampton Inn offers a nice repreive from other area hotels that neighbor busy commerical strips. Although a big chain property, at most glances it doesn't feel like such.
A large, active aquarium separates the front desk and lobby, which has comfortable leather seats from which to watch the flat-screen TV. The lobby adjoins the breakfast area, and both overlook the outdoor pool, which resembles something straight out of a Tuscan villa -- complete with a small rock waterfall and ample lounge seating.
The hotel's interior is warm, inviting, and clean throughout, and at-home touches such as homemade cookies every afternoon help complete the cozy, welcoming experience.
Next to a main thoroughfare in Rockport and close to area beaches and nature reserves
The Hampton Inn & Suites Rockport enjoys a convenient location off a main road leading out of town. The property is surrounded by trees, and there’s a small neighborhood behind the property. Although there’s no beach here, it’s a quick drive to Rockport Beach Park and other local beaches.
Rockport lies about 32 miles north of downtown Corpus Christi and makes a nice alternative to staying in the city. It has a laid-back atmosphere but enough in the way of shopping and comforts to be convenient. Large chain grocery stores and even a Walmart are nearby. The town itself sprawls along the shoreline lining Aransas Bay.
Spacious, modern, well-appointed, and comfortable
Rooms are spacious and nicely appointed with comfy beds, a workspace, coffeemaker, and modern amenities such as flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi. The rooms are decorated in earth tones, with maroon accent walls, crown moldings, and dark-wood furniture. The bathrooms are spacious, with a walk-in sink area with a closet and a separate toilet/shower room.
Don't expect stunning views, though -- rooms face the parking lot surrounding the property.
The Hampton Inn & Suites Rockport is a stand-out in this price point for its updated, comfortable rooms, and excellent amenities, including an outdoor pool that’s straight out of a Tuscan villa, a sauna, and free breakfast. Good, strong coffee is available around-the clock in the lobby, and fresh-baked cookies in the afternoon add that right-at-home touch. The hotel is also well located in a pretty, tree-enclosed area along a main street in Rockport, close to beaches and local parks. Overall it's a great budget option only a half-hour drive to downtown.
