White Caps is very basic, but clean and comfortable. They could use a bit of décor on the walls to lend some character. The furnishings are very basic, but they do have wifi, ample parking. Towels are nice and thick and fluffy. The hotel is just a bit northwest of Port Clinton, very quiet. A very good value lodging -... More

My husband and I stayed in the Touissaint cottage at the White Caps with our little dogs June 28th to July 6th 2015. This has probably been our 5th stay at least, over the past 4 years, and it was as wonderful as ever! The mobile home was very clean as usual, spotless kitchen, bath, the whole place was great!...

Rooms are small, but comfortable. Did not have the issue with noise that some other reviewers have had. Owner very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. A short drive to the beach and restaurants/nightlife. For the price, a good night's stay.

Very nice, and clean, wiht a great price. This is an RV park / motor-inn that is a mile or so west of Port Clinton. It is a little hard to find, so watch for teh red & white sign on the South side of teh road. The rooms are small; but they are clean and well kept; and the... More

We booked this room from the good reviews. We needed a place to stay for Ohio Bike Week. The location to Sandusky is about 15 minutes which was nice. If you are looking for a clean but worn out place to stay that is a little less expensive than most motels, this is your place. Although the room was clean... More

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
