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 The soda machine in the hall had warm outdated soda in it.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

The front desk person Mike and the bartender Brinniti made the trip very friendly and helpful. The bed are very uncomfortable . No fitted sheet for the mattress (seriously). The pool and surrounding area was nice.

My wife and I had a perfect experience. Very friendly staff across the board (thanks, Mike!), delicious Sunday breakfast buffet with an unbeatable view of Lake Erie, right next door to Marblehead lighthouse, and a clean room with a spotless bathroom. 5 stars! We'll come back...
