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

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

As our son was at encampment at Camp Perry, we stayed at the White Caps Motel. This is a decent, simple, reasonably priced and clean motel. Reminiscent of the old fashioned motels that provide you with a place to lay your head without all the bells and whistles YET all the necessary amenities. I was impressed with the large room... More

We decided to take a three day getaway and stayed at the Touisaint cottage there. We have stayed several times before in the same cottage and it is always extremely clean! There is plenty of area to walk our dogs too! The property is very quiet and we had lots of privacy. It is also just a short drive to... More
