“Nice experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Myself and many friends and family for an out-of-town wedding. Staff was GREAT. Kind and friendly, But not very good with directions :( Rooms clean and comfortable. Somewhat pricey.....just to sleep,but overall a good experience. I would suggust McDonalds for breakfast. They're eggs aren't powdered.

Besides having to pay for a new room fire to some issues with the check-in date it was a good stay. The customer service was good and the place was nice and clean. Also, I enjoyed the pool and hot tub surrounded by nice scenery.

This was a good location it was right in the middle of the two major ferry lines to Put-In-bay, and was very conveniently located to restaurants and shopping. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous with everything. Typical continental breakfast for this establishment. The only gripe that I do have is that the price was a little high, for two nights it was nearly $500, I would have expected a little more room and a little more attention to detail for this price. I reserved the king suite and it seemed like a regular room with a king bed, fridge and sleeper sofa thrown in it. There were spots on the ceiling where the paint was peeling away, and the bathroom was small to where the door almost hit the toilet and there were spots where the tile on the floor was cracked or pulling away from the wall loosening the grout or caulking. I know this might sound like nitpicking but I would consider it a fair trade off for the price that one would pay.

The pool was nice, and the breakfast was tasty. However, there was no hand soap or body soap, and the ceilings were very dirty. The AC didn't work very well. Additionally, there was no room to sit down for breakfast.

This hotel was very nice. The entrance was welcoming, the pool area was nice, and our room was good. The continental breakfast was good. The views were good. The location was great because its only minutes from the ferry to go to the island. However, the cost was pretty outrageous. I can't see spending over 300 after tax to stay in a hotel room. I'd rather sleep outside. That's just me. Other than that it was a very nice hotel

I arrived at approximately 2pm on Saturday after driving 800 miles. The staff were extremely helpful and had my room ready and waiting for me. I was supplied with a list of Restaurants with directions and location. The front desk clerk helped me locate my destination which was only 3 miles from the hotel. You can tell by the condition of the hotel and the grounds that the employees take pride in this establishment. House keeping were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone and I intend to visit the area again on vacation with my family and I will stay at this hotel again. Thanks to everyone at Holiday Inn Express in Port Clinton, Oh. for making my stay away very pleasant while being away from home.

Room Tip: Many of the rooms face the lake. I enjoyed being able to see the lake when I were in my room.
