We spent nearly $300 for an anniversary getaway. The staff was very friendly--the best part about the place. They need to take the word "resort" out of the title. It is an overpriced Holiday Inn, at best. The beds were terribly uncomfortable, the 'upgraded' view (which costs) was our window overlooking the 3 cemented pool areas and the small cabins with the front porches facing the pools, and large families all crammed onto these porches--talking, smoking, etc. The air conditioner was noisy. The room had a mildewy smell and the hot tub was a bathtub with jets in the carpeted room. The 'free' breakfast consisted of white toast; and two choices of cereal and oatmeal packets. We could only laugh about how ridiculously expensive this trip was. If you've never been to a hotel before, you might be impressed. The best part about the whole trip was the dinner out at Mon Ami Winery--a wonderful meal. And p.s.: the $25 the 'resort' charges you for wine and chocolate delivered to your room is an $8 bottle of wine and a couple of mediocre chocolates.

The room looked out to the lake. A balcony exited the room. Room colors and decor made for a feeling of warmth as if we were on a beach. The jacuzzi was perfect. The bathroom had Bath & Body Works! This is prime lakefront property. Our stay here was PERFECT. Micheal Burdine, you are a great Manager. Thank you!

Was in Port Clinton to visit family and the islands for a long weekend in early November. This hotel was everything one could want in a hotel. The rooms were comfortable in size, and ours had a very nice view of the water. Staff at the front desk all went out of their way to be accomodating. Great couples retreat.

Room Tip: The balcony rooms are more spacious

We selected South Beach Resort Hotel sight-unseen from the internet because it was located on Lake Erie (well, Sandusky Bay) roughly a day's drive from our ultimate destination in Maryland. When we arrived, we found roofers & siding installers hard at work to repair extensive hail damage inflicted by a fierce summer storm 4 weeks earlier. Nonetheless, the hotel staff were very welcoming & caring, providing us with an excellent room with a nice view of the bay that was located as far as possible from the worksite. They also supplied us with literature about area restaurants & attractions and spent time answering our questions several times during our 2-day stay. The accommodations were excellent ~ it would be a great place for a family gathering.

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a view of the lake. They provided one on the top floor with an excellent v...

My stay at the South Beach Resort was not a good one at all, We came from Cleveland Ohio, It was my husbands birthday so we wanted to go somewhere different. The room was clean but I wanted to use the hot tub I didn't beacause the jets were filthy, we went out to eat lunch and put the maid service sign on our door, when we return we noticed someone turned the sign to do not disturb and our room was not cleaned, and I went in the breakfast room that morning to get us breakfast the room was freezing cold, it was a family in there eating breakfast, they were bundled in hats and coats, my husband did enjoy the restaurants around the resort, we plan to go back to Marblehead in the summer but my husband said he would never go there again, I have to agree.

My husband booked the romance package as a surprise for our 24th wedding anniversary. The rose petals were a great mood setter. We don't drink, so in lieu of champagne, we got Welch's Sparkling grape juice and no break on the price. Also, with Moni Ami winery being part of the romance package, I would have expected to get their grape juice. The room was big and pleasant and the jacuzzi tub was very nice. The first night we didn't have anyone staying in the room above us, but on Saturday night it sounded like a stampede. The breakfast was very sparse. We enjoyed our get-a-way to Put-in-Bay on Saturday and it was conveniently located for that.
