Everyone chooses their hotel for a reason. If your primary goal happens to be catching a large trout while night fishing off of a lighted dock, try the Quality Inn on Aransas Bay.

In our experience, Quality Inn typically offers a no frills lodging experience. 

The killer feature at the Quality Inn on Aransas Bay is across the street from the hotel. They have what looked like it might have been the best private pier in Rockport. It was long, well maintained, and had lots of the big green lights that are popular with South Texas trout fishermen.

If your main objective is fishing from shore, this is a nice option.
