Great prices...clean (but modest) rooms. Friendly staff. Great way to avoid the high prices of motels near I-90. Rooms are clean, modest. Location of motel is in a nice residential area and 5 minute walk to Lake Erie.

This little motel was pretty much what I expected. It was a bit dated and there were some cosmetic issues in the room, but it was clean and the owner Jackie was very nice. The beds were surprisingly comfy. Breakfast was not included but the food at the restaurant was good and inexpensive. (Breakfast and lunch hours only) There was... More

Since my brother lives close to this property, we stay here about once a year. It is run down, outdated, the furniture is worn, but it IS close. That stops this year! The price on this motel is as high as the chains out on Route 90, but that's where the similarities stop. I won't put up with the shortcomings... More

The rooms were very clean and the bed was comfortable. Each room has a coffee maker and a fridge. I would have preferred an iron and a hairdryer. We had told them we would be arriving very late, and they just left the rooms unlocked with the keys on the desk. We didn't actually see anyone in the hotel until... More

Judging from their website and appearance in the b&b section on trip advisor we expected a quaint stay in or near a lighthouse. The website didn't show any pictures except the inside of a room so we were surprised to find a basic motel with no lighthouse in sight other than the 3' lawn ornament. The rooms were clean and...
