We've stayed here a couple times. It's on the beach so you're always tracking in sand. We actually brought a broom and dust pan. To use the indoor pool and for breakfast you have to walk across the street to their sister hotel.

I love this place so much. It's perfect. It's right on the beach and so cute. My children have never seen the ocean, but this is close enough. It definitely has an ocean feel about it. We also eat at Dock's restaurant that is next door (on the beach) and also visit the Safari while we are there too. I... More

The good the bad and the ugly for this spot right on Lake Erie. The good is since the wife and I have been coming up to the lake multi times per year since the 1980’s you cannot beat the location. Beachfront Resort is right on the lake literally within feet. Their sitting deck and the beach is steps from... More

Searched high and low for a nice place with (direct) access to the lake. This is the only option I found. WAY over priced. Clean as clean can be, for a hotel of this age. Be prepared for zero carpet, long time since I walked on cold tile floors, yuk. Hot water is abundant. Free WiFi, desk for your computer... More

This is my second review, it seems that the first review was not posted. We booked this property because of the description, Resort! By no means is this hotel a resort. The room has not been updated in years. It was old, smelled & the mattresses were paper thin! It had a tacky in room jacuzzi. We had no problem... More

This is a great location. Wonderful restaurant on property, private beach, dance club across the street, short walk to the jet express and clean room. So happy with the place we have decided to come back every year for our annual girls trip.

We stayed here on our way back from Put in Bay. Very nice beach hotel. We needed a rest after a weekend of drinking. We just layed on the beach and had a good nap. We had dinner at Docks Beach House and watched the sunset. Very good place to stay.

My spouse and I acquired two rooms for two nights for us and our friends from Canada. We found the accommodation to be in a great location. However, we were very surprised at the quality of the cleanliness. Every faucets were very hard to open and the room was not very clean. In addition our room was never made up... More
