From the point of view of our 10-year-old grandson, the hotel restaurant was top-notch. As the only early diners, we got the table with the best view of Lake Erie, the marina and gazebo. We drank from goblets of icy water, spread linen napkins on our laps and snapped pictures of one another. The waitress was sweet, prompt and candid... More

Tired, dirty and in desperate need of updating. I'm flabbergasted that they can get away with charging so much for the yucky rooms. And if you're looking for a place to "party," this isn't it. I couldn't believe how early the place rolled up on a 4th of July holiday weekend.

We have stayed here many times but this visit was our last. This hotel really is more like a night club on Fridays and Saturdays when they have a live band playing in their club/outdoor pool area. They played until 1:00 a.m. and then drunk people hung out in the courtyard below our window and in the hallways talking very... More

This place looks nice on the outside but is disgusting on the inside. I always look for a hotel that has a pool & fitness center. This hotel touts that is has such, but they are run down, dirty, & open to the public. Apparently community members can get memberships to the gym. The paying members are not the problem... More

There was nothing spectacular about this hotel. Its is right on Lake Erie but you are next to a boat launch and the closest beach is a few miles away. The food was average but slightly expensive and the continental breakfast ended at 930 sharp and the selection was dull. The waffle maker was not exactly the cleanest I've seen... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and stayed after visiting a few wineries. The hotel room was a suite with a hot tub- we were sadly disappointed when we opened the door to our room. It was old and dingy. The room looked like the 1800s. It was stuffy. We turned AC on full blast. We went down for... More

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at our hotel. I am sorry you were disappointed on this occasion. We have slowly been going through the rooms and updating them.
