This is not a resort, rather an outdated motel. We had booked a three night stay because we were attending a wedding nearby. The hall was dark and not the best carpet. Upon arriving at our room, we first noticed the musty smell and the frayed edges on the curtains. The bed had an old comforter on it and an... More

We came to the Lighthouse Resort for a wedding in Marblehead, Ohio, with the reception in Catawba. When we first checked in, we thought it was going to be nice, although we only picked up the keys and left for the wedding ceremony. When we got back, we headed up to the room. Things were fine. We had gotten a... More

Stayed here for my class reunion. The beds were the worst ever. Thought I was sleeping on concrete. And the bedding was disgusting - like they bought them after the military used them. Ridiculous rules! Met some of my old classmates before the event and brought our own beer to sit outside. We were "in trouble" not allowed to drink... More

My wife and I were looking for a motel on Lake Erie for the weekend and stayed on Sunday and Monday night, and on Sunday we were the only ones in the entire building, kind of spooky. The place was clean and the whirlpool tub was nice, staff friendly enough. I am giving it a lower rating because it is... More

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 The soda machine in the hall had warm outdated soda in it.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
