This is by far the worst place I've stayed. Funny smell in the halls ,no fridge in the room, no rose petals on my bed, which I paid for. Like 6 channels on the tv. Nearest gas store 10 15 min away. When asked to get my money back because I had a death in the family, was told no.... More

The hotel seemed to be staffed by high school kids. Walking into the mail lobby made my teenage daughter uncomfortable, and even I noticed the typical high school 'look-over' and mannerisms from these people. They need a lesson in working in the service industry. The adult staff were great. The rooms were dated (they really need to get rid of... More

South Beach Resort is a beautiful hidden gem in Mablehead, Sandusky. Clean, quaint, with a beautiful veiw of the Lake. Winery's, shopping, and great resturants all close by. We'll difinely go back!! We stayed in the hotel. The room had a jacuzzi tub, plus a regular nice bathroom, two beds, and a private balcony. It was just the two of... More

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 When we got to our room they were really outdated and in the bathroom there was water damage on the ceiling and black mold!!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.
