Sparse, no extras, but if you are looking for an overnight that's clean and reliable...this is it. And did I say inexpensive? Definitely..and with Wi-Fi? and good tv stations? After a long driving day, this just hit the spot.

Have a nearby timeshare but had to book a motel for short notice fishing trip. The price is right for this place. Room was clean and well supplied towels etc. There is a seasonal mobile home area and cottages on this property. The pictures here are not what you get at the motel. I wouldn't recommend bringing your kids for... More

We wanted to take our adult children for a nice quick family get a way and White Caps was perfect. We rented three rooms and we had all we needed. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, we had a refrigerator, micro wave and a 12 cup coffee pot in the room. Rooms are a bit musty smelling but air conditioner... More

Our group stayed one night at the motel preceding an early morning fishing charter. We had two 2-bedroom rooms. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Nice TV, small fridge and microwave - all you need! Our rooms opened out to small courtyard with a gazebo and table where we "shot the breeze" before turning in. And the rates... More

Stayed only one night, room was clean but many mosquitos hanging around the ceiling area. The trailor park onsite isnt exactly attractive but its well kept. Beds were very comfortable. It took forever to get hot water in our room in the evening, I was told its because of the circulating pump schedule. But eventually we did get hot water.... More

We waited too long to book any of our favorite places in Marblehead, Ohio for the 4th of July weekend. On a lark, we found the White Caps, and they had a room open. This was a real stroke of luck for us. The rooms are large, updated and really clean. The bedding seems newer and very comfortable. Each bed... More

Outstanding!!! I recently stayed there an was totally satisfied with it all. The rooms were very clean, the shower worked ok, could have used a little more pressure. Lol But I have found my place away from home when I go fishing on Lake Erie. Also the charter we went on was awesome. Caught our limit before noon. Chater Capt... More

My family and I stayed here for the first time. We usually stay on base at nearby Camp Perry for the National Pistol Championships. White Caps is close to the base and close to downtown Port Clinton. We already reserved our rooms for next year. Rooms are clean and have a fridge and microwave. Very convenient! We have two little... More

I took my daughter to fish for 3 days, docking locally and staying in cabin #10. Aside from no propane, therefore hot water, we had a beautiful stay there. Neighbors are friendly and it's located close to downtown, jet express and local bars and jet ski rentals. Perfect for a small, quiet weekend.

The establishment has an identity crisis - I don't think if knows if it wants to be a trailer park or a motel. The grounds were average and well kept. The rooms we stayed in was dated and could have used a little better cleaning for the price we paid. Will not go back - when I am in the... More
