A great hotel (and cottages) for family fun. Stayed with our two pre-teens in a Queen suite and spacing was fine for a 3 night stay. Don't expect luxury, but clean (although daily housekeeping services marginal) and lots to do. Pros: Front desk staff very helpful, outdoor pools (3, but small), shuffleboard, volleyball, fire pit, tennis court, corn hole, gazebos,... More

We just had a wonderful stay at South Beach Resort. The 3 pools were clean and inviting, the complimentary breakfast was great and the room had a wonderful view. The people working were friendly and helpful.

My husband and I went to stay at this hotel. When we got there we were skeptical. The girls at the front desk just stared at us and we're not friendly at all. When we got to our room they were really outdated and in the bathroom there was water damage on the ceiling and black mold!! I couldn't believe... More

Don't get me wrong....this is not a terrible place but I think you could probably do better for the money. Our room was on the 3rd floor with a decent view of Lake Erie. The room itself is clean but some updating is needed - paint is chipping around the doors, etc. This resort has a bit of an identity... More

The overall appearance is ok. Rooms are small for the price. There must be little to no insulation. We could hear our neighbors conversations and above our room we could the people walking back and forth. The jacuzzi tubs can not be used after 10 pm due to this problem. Our bed was broken and sat on the floor. It... More

Our family reunion was recently held here. Villas and hotel rooms are available. 3 pools, playground, volleyball, fishing are on the premises. A log fire was set and lit every night, all ready for our s'mores! Location to all the other islands and amusements are very close. We will definitely go back.

Stayed for a long weekend with my family, including three young children. We had a blast. Pools were clean and fun. Beach close by. My cousins brought his boat over for the day. Kelleys Island Ferry is close by. Lots to do within 15-30 minutes, but you don't have to leave because it is so much fun at the resort!... More

My family (husband, daughter and I) stayed in the hotel for a long weekend. The outside gives a deceivingly good impression. The hotel rooms themselves are nothing to get excited about, and our room had a list of issues so long it borders on ludicrous. The only people I ever saw working looked like KIDS, maybe 21-22, so we reluctantly,... More

Our family of 17 spent a week in two cottages. We rented a villa and a cape cod cottage. The good - it's a great place for families with children as there are LOTS of family-friendly activities on site and nearby. The pools were great. The atmosphere is very casual and laid back which is exactly what we wanted. It... More
