We were greeted at the door and the friendliness never stopped. The staff even acknowledged my birthday. Big breakfast selection. Room was very large, bathroom little small. Everything was clean. The sheets on the bed were so soft you didn't want to get out. My only disappointment was Cheese Haven was closed until April.

We come back to the Catawba Island property annually because we are welcomed so enthusiastically by staff and management. This year was no exception. Prompt changeover of meeting room layouts ensures that we lose no time between phases of our convention. The breakfasts and other meal service (covered by our conference fees) are excellent. Despite the facility being sold out... More

We had to be in Sandusky early (8:00 A.M.) on a Sunday morning for my granddaughter's gymnastics meet at Kalahari. This hotel was about 20 minutes away from the venue but it worked well for us. We had two connecting rooms which made it easier since there were three adults and two children. The breakfast was one of the better... More

Wonderful service and helpfulness. I will stay here again. Great value. I attended a conference and the staff was superb in providing service. Great location virtually on Lake Erie. Boaters delight. Kim and her staff are the absolute best. 1812 Restaurant in the historic downtown serves really fine food.
