I recommend Air B&B! There are LOTS of great options in the area, most of which are more affordable (and way more fun) than the chain hotels. Also, this keeps your money in the local economy. If you have any questions about a specific property or location, please reach out to us! Here is a convenient link to the page with the local search information in it!
If you prefer hotels, the LaQuinta is the best bet. EconoLodge is cheap…and in this case you definitely get what you pay for. Many of the small local motels were destroyed by Hurricane Harvey, and we miss them.
The Lightouse Inn at Aransas Bay is my favorite local hotel, but has not re-opened after Harvey. Their website (in link above) has updates as they become available. If they are open by the wedding, it is a WONDERFUL hotel!
