I found Great Lakes Motel on Booking.com while on a drive from New Hampshire to Chicago. I detoured off of I-80 (Ohio Turnpike) about 10 miles to get there. It is on US Hwy 20. The remarkable features of my Room 15 were a king-sized bed, full size refrigerator with a freezer, a microwave oven, a coffee maker with coffee,... More

When I travel on the motorcycle, I am tired and have no need for extra fluff that I will not use anyhow. I need a quiet clean room and bathroom to get clean again and sleep. The owner is very nice and helpful, she and her assistant were good on the phone when reserving. She did not seem to mind... More

Okay, maybe it doesn't have a good view, but the bathroom has a window that you can open, which is a thumbs up on my list for many reasons! Not only did it have the blinds for privacy but had the cutest valance curtain on top!!! When we called for reservations, Mama took care of us. Just asked what time... More

I had car problems outside of Fremont on a cross-country road trip and had to get a last minute room very late at night. Mama, the owner of Great Lakes, made what was already a pretty terrible and expensive evening in Fremont into a comfortable and restorative night. She called me Bubu and treated me like a long-lost relative, offering... More

Been here a few weeks and just recently the owner entered our room while we were away. Didnt bother to call and make sure she could enter or anything. Constantly calling our room phone at all hours of the day. Entering our room atfter midnight waking us up. Its absolutely RIDICULOUS!!!!

We stayed here one night recently in room 115. It was at the end of the row of rooms. Each room has a little carport next to it. We parked with just the nose of the car in because it's so narrow, if you pulled all the way in, I don't think you could open your door. Still it was... More

I stayed here overnight as I had my certification dives at the White Star Quarry. I must say, the rooms were well maintained and had all the facilities, any decent hotel would have. The people were very hospitable and friendly. Car parking was right next to my room, hence it was very convenient to take things in and out of... More

I stopped here on a trip with my wife after traveling late at night on I-80 from Chicago to Massachusetts to drop off our son at college. I called ahead around midnight for a 2am arrival, and a room was available. The motel was around 4 miles off the highway, but the extra distance was well worth it. The room... More

This place is a little off the beaten path, but clean, quiet, and comfortable. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms are pretty basic, and the decor a little outdated, but overall everything was very clean and comfy. Just what I needed after a day of fun and sun in Sandusky!
