I read the reviews after staying at this resort and I was shocked by all the negativity because my family and I did not experience one problem. The motel was nice with a restaurant in the facility along with a small gift shop. Despite the other posts the lighthouse is in walking distance...it is 1000 feet away. As far as... More

Very attentive staff, super clean rooms! All meals provided for our groups weekend. Served in conference center on site . The grounds were impeccable and beautifully landscaped. The conference center was a great private space . Evening included a fire pit gathering . Highly recommend and I will return this season again !!

All of the negative reviews about this place is so true! This hotel is way overpriced. The elevator didn't even work half of the time. The soda machine in the hall had warm outdated soda in it. The bed was the hardest bed I have ever slept on. The place was just terrible!

We stayed here for a wedding and thought it would be nice to be walking distance to the Lighthouse. Negative.. The lighthouse you have to drive to so don't stay here just for that. The power went out while we were there nobody cared even after we contacted the hotel. We still have yet to hear from anyone so I... More

One reviewer was correct in their stating this hotel is highly overpriced for what is accommodated. This is basically a motel, not a hotel or resort. Just a motel. Just about the quality of a 60.00 motel and no more. At least free WiFi is provided.

We couldn't find a hotel in Port Clinton on a Saturday night so we were directed to Marblehead and the Lighthouse Resort. With no other vacancies we were forced to pay the ridiculous price for a old, dated room. Check in was kind of strange as we filled out a small 4 x 8 card in pencil with all our... More

Very strange that I had to show drivers license and put the number in the register and give license plate at front desk. Nice view of the water and nice pool area. Good restaurant. Very close, walking distance to the lighthouse.

Staff was informative, restaurant (Ritski's-very nice!) on premises. Nice kitchenette, with microwave & fridge. Be sure to check out lighthouse artwork at back of property between pool & playground. Shore right across the street.

Beautiful location--close to ferry and lighthouse. Beds were horrible. Cheap mattresses with no fitted sheet. Everyday we were missing coffee or cream n sugar which we had to get from the front desk. Air conditioning was missing from halls and elevator which they controlled from the front desk. On the plus side, room was vey clean. Too bad we will... More

The site has made many updates in the past year. Room are clean and the property location is close to catch a ferry to any of the islands. Dinner or breakfast in the dinning room is O.K. The hotel is located right across the street from Lake Erie so you have a good view.
