Liked that we were near the beach. We could actually hear the ocean. Liked the size of the room. The shower was a roll in shower and I assume that it is for handicapped but that was the last room with a king size bed.. The water from the shower was going all over the bathroom floor which was problematic. The parking was great. Great area, 3 other hotels there, 4 restaurants and some little shops. There was also nail salon and spa massage within walking distance. Everything was within walking distance and a few other stores and restaurants close by within a mile or so. Hiking trails and bike trail right there too. Loved this little area of Rockaway Beach.

I enjoyed the oceanfront location and the view from my room. However I didn't realize pets were allowed when I made my booking. There were dogs barking (sounded like small dogs) and yapping constantly in the next room. Upon entering the elevator a couple with a small dog nipped at my feet as they were leaving the elevator and I was entering. These experiences with dogs made for an unpleasant stay.and will prevent me from staying there again.

Wonderful and great.. The desk clerk upgraded our room after I told her I was there for my Birthday weekend .We were amazed at the ocean view just 50ft. from our sliding glass door . The Moonraker Restaurant in the Hotel is AMAZING .. The Chef does a fantastic job with the food taste and presentation . We sat overlooking the crashing waves and at time heavy rain, as we sat in the comfortable large booth , with delightful waiters . great mini vacation there.

Nice location but undergoing renovation

The Lighthouse hotel is on the beach, but long overdue for renovations, which are underway, but in a different section from my room. Decor was very dated. Popcorn ceilings with visible seams, peeling wallpaper in hallways. The restaurant was closed for 1 1/2 days be Use of a water leak. Might eventually be nice when renovations completed but till then, not a great place for the price.

Very comfortable.

Pros: Right on the ocean.
Cons: Cement parking strips not where someone can trip over them.
Location: I was visiting family so I did not spend a lot of time nearby.
Everything and everyone was great. My only problem was on my last night I parked and tripped over a cement strip in parking lot which I did not see because a car was parked in that slot. I may have broken my nose, wrist, and rib. It took over three hours for my lower mouth to stop bleeding because my teeth went through my lower gums. I thought my lower teeth were broken. Thankfully, they are not. I did take pictures. Even my blood on the cement.

On Beach

Pros: Plenty of good eating options 2 min. walk from our room.
Cons: Thin ceilings/floors (but not walls or windows or doors). Somewhat confusing hotel layout as well.
Location: Beach for wading and fishing (and surfing?). Paved walking/biking trail into Mori point park adjacent. Some shops nearby.
Very clean and comfortable. Nice small pool. Right on Rockaway State Beach - plenty of surf sounds at night if you crack your window.
