The room was great in many ways, large enough, very clean and the jacuzzi was a wonderful surprise. The view of the lake was awesome! The continental breakfast, very nice. The front desk clerk, Desa, is knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating, a true asset to The South Beach Resort.

Went for the weekend to get away and relax. Although i'm sure the summer months would be much more enjoyable, we still had a great time. Jacuzzi was a very nice addition to the room. Clean, comfortable place to stay. Most everything to do is on the lake side of the peninsula, but only a 10 minute drive.

We made our first trip to Marblehead and ended up here. We were very happy with it. The staff were all great, and wonderful continental breakfast is included. Lots of grounds to walk and enjoy the wonderful fall weather. Cute sandy beach. You are a few miles from the ferries and the main restaurant area, but it is easy to... More

I took advantage of a living social offer for the hotel. I was not disappointed. We arrived on Sunday and stayed Monday. Even though the places were closed on Monday we received such great help from the staff as to where to go and what to see we had a great getaway. Because of this we are planning a trip... More

Loved the room, very clean and quiet. Staff was helpful when needed. The hotel was very clean and was definitely used with a big family reunion this past weekend. Checking in and out was fast and easy. The accomodations are great if you want to stay at the hotel and relax. I loved the option of sitting by the beach... More

The word "resort" needs to be taken out of the name. We stayed in the main building and not a cottage. The building didn't feel very sturdy. As we walked up the ramp toward our room, I noted a hollow feel beneath me. The balcony in our room also had a similar flimsy feel to it. Our room amounted to... More

The room was amazing! Very nice decor, flat screen, seperate vanity from the bath. Loved loved the ample space! Staff was very friendly and... More

We could not have choosen a better location to perfectly combine fun and overwhelmingly beautiful atmosphere. Our suite was enormously spacious and offered luxury around every corner. Our service was beyond compare. Upon departure and arrival each day we were assisted by numerous staff. Very helpful and courteous.

I stayed here last week on business. I did not sleep well the first night. I felt things crawling on me all night. Upon waking up, I discovered my sheets covered in dozens of spots of my own blood. The culprits: BEDBUGS! I had been crawled on and chewed on all night and my body was covered in small, open... More
