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

No value for the price. Have contacted manager for refund, but no luck. We have stayed there July 5th 2014 for one night. First of all, it does not represent resort property, because towels feel like sandpaper, and hot tub is only a hot tub that holds 70F degree temperature. Therefore I would call it a warm tub if any... More

Well, it was a great bay! We have stayed here a few times and have always enjoyed it. The pools are great. Two for the kids, including a zero-entry kid pool with splash buckets. And a quiet pool near the quiet marina and an attached hot tub. Everything has always been clean and maintained. This really is a beautiful property.... More

Lovely room with a Jacuzzi and a great view of the lake. Helpful staff and good breakfast. The only downside was the cleaning of the room - the only thing that was done was emptying of bins and fresh towels. The beds were not made for the four days we stayed, even though I asked every day. One day I... More

My family and I had a fantastic time at South Beach. We stayed one night in the hotel and hope to come back someday stay in a cottage. The kids loved the pool area and the play area. We spent much of our time on the pier fishing where the kids caught a ton of catfish. The grounds are beautiful... More
