We are a family of seven and it's difficult to find a hotel that is accommodating with space and bathrooms while being a reasonable cost. I was very nervous to try this place because of some of the reviews. I decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. We had a three room suite which consisted of a... More

I grew up in Sandusky and knew of this hotel but never stayed there before. Visiting for my class reunion, we decided to take a chance and stay here for the cost and convenient location. Rooms were out of date and needed a good cleaning. At first, it appeared to be OK and we had a suite because we had... More

We sincerely apologize for the issue you experienced during your stay. Unfortunately in the summer months we do wrestle with nature in this part of the country, for this reason we employ a pest control company to spray on a regular basis, however, it is difficult to guarantee that a lone spider will not find its way onto the property....

The first thing you notice is the façade on the overhead structure in front of the lobby entrance is literally falling down. The restaurant was decent with good service while we waited to get into the room. For older folks beware, no elevator. In the room we were immediately disappointed by 30 year old furnishings, a picture tube TV (that... More

Stayed at the South Shore while attending a SHS Class reunion. The hotel is definately older, with a 8 ft deep pool (unheard of these days!) and room doors leading to the outside. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the room was very clean, the beds and pillows were wonderfully comfortable, and it appeared that the bedding was relatively new.... More
