This was our family's third time to stay at the Laughing Horse, but the first time with our 70# dog. "Rocky" was welcomed with his very own doggie towel and special treats in the hotel provided dog dish. Our cottage was clean and comfortable with easy to clean cement floors and a stocked kitchen. Evenings were spent sipping a cool...

My wife found this place in the back of Texas Monthly, and loved how dog-friendly it claimed to be. Upon our arrival, Candy was very helpful, and explained everything we needed to know...for us and our dog. They offered dog treats, dog bowls, dog towels, poop bags, dog-washing areas....and the rooms were concrete floors, so very easy to sweep up...

Not sure what the folks that gave bad reviews were expecting. This is a small set of cottages close to the beach. It is cost effective, clean, and just what we were looking for to spend time with our family as well as the cousins staying in another unit. They obviously cater to dog owners. We may have been one...

I was a single woman traveling so safety was very important. I felt very safe here. It was also very quiet and close to the beach. Bed was comfortable and kitchen was stocked with accessories. Shower was very tight, but it did the job it was supposed to! Everything was clean to my standards (which are quite high). Overall, it...

Stayed for two nights and were overly pleased with our rooms. Super cute and super clean. It was two blocks from the beach so visiting during the day or night was a breeze. Everything we wanted to see or buy in town was within walking distance of the lodge and was perfect for coming back to crash before heading to...

After looking at all the others we decided we liked the feel of this place. It's got charm and character. I like the big windows and attention to details. It felt like a beach house. We tried Best Western and even tho it had a pool and breakfast included the rooms were dark and smelled like bleach. Not our thing....

This was our first stay and we will be back for sure! We brought our two dogs who enjoyed having their own rooms and a double bed each. :) This place is wonderful for people who travel with their pups. There is a bathroom area, the supply poop bags and trash cans, there are hoses on the sides of each...
