Hotel was great weather could have been better for the guys and their fishing. Girls went to Kenny House for massages which were awesome. Good time with friends.

Great place to stay right down town. Right on the waterfront all the restaurants right downtown and all the bars. Will stay again!!! The staff is great and friendly and right next to the Jet Express.

My friend and I stayed here in August, 2010. We were there to compete, for the first time, at the National Matches at Camp Perry. To say we were greatly disappointed with the room would be an understatement. There was not enough space for two people to walk through the room at the same time. The beds were uncomfortable. There were spider webs in the corners. There was a large glob of long black hair stuck to the shower wall. There was mold all over the inside of the shower curtain. If the price had been around $50, the dirty, shabby room would have been acceptable. But, the $150 ($180 after taxes) was outrageous!! We will not be returning to this motel. I would suggest a little quality control at this motel.

We only had a few days and we always travel with our small dog, Frazer. They were very gracious and receiving with him. Our room was ready and we were very early. Maid service was terrific all of the office staff was so friendly and kind. We never had to get back in the car for anything. It's so close to everything and so many places to eat. We will definately go back to stay longer.

My girlfriend and I stayed at Americas Best Value Inn (ABVI) in Port Clinton from Thursday August 5 to Sunday August 8, 2010. One of the best parts about this motel is the location. You can walk to the Jet Express. You can walk to and through downtown Port Clinton where there are lots of great restaurants, shops, and nightlife. ABVI has a nice little patio area with tables and umbrellas next to the dock where you can sit, talk, drink, smoke, or just relax. This is a family owned business and the owners are friendly and laid back. ABVI served as the perfect gateway to Put In Bay and our exploration of the Lake Erie Islands area.

For those who are UPPITY and are expecting a luxury hotel with lots of amenities...this AINT IT! This is a converted MOTEL. Room is small and its old...but who cares since hopefully you are spending most of your time OUT OF YOUR ROOM. The Air Conditioning was working but did not provide a lot of cooling...we went to Dollar General and picked up a fan and set it up and it worked just fine. ABVI had free wireless, but the signal was VERY intermittent and was often times unavailable. I had my IPAD in tow to check the signal. We stayed 3 nights...booked the tickets on www.cheaptravel.com and paid $419 with taxes and fees ($140 a night) This motel AT MOST should be priced at an average of $90 a night.....but you know what...during the summer tourist season...ABVI..and all the other motels and hotels in the area can charge whatever they want because its SUPPLY and DEMAND BABY!

If you are looking for the best possible convenient location in Port Clinton to stay...this is it. If you are looking for a luxury hotel that can be stayed at for $75 or less a night...you should probably reconsider your travel to the Lake Erie area.

My husband and I just got back from a 2 night stay at (the old Lakeland) the America's Best Value Inn in Port Clinton and we loved it! Read the not so good reviews and tried it anyways as we have learned from other travels that one mans bad review is often one mans just plain rotten mood!! This spot is quaint and quiet - hard to believe it was right downtown! Get a waterfront view and you will be near heaven! The rooms are walled in knotty pine - REAL knotty pine! Very comfy! In the budget! The folks are as nice as can be --and my husband wanted me to add..terrific coffee! We have stayed "down the street" at the other guys..never again. This IS the place for our return visits to Port Clinton!! The secret is out! :-)

With PUT-N-BAY being a 3 hour drive from home and Put-N-Bay lodging owners requiring a 2 night minimum stay, my husband and I had to resort to staying in Port Clinton. I was happy to find this MOTEL within walking distance to the JET EXPRESS boat dock. ( It's shocking to discover how high the lodging prices are in the sleepy little towns by Lake Erie. )
The lengthy gleaming description of this MOTEL on their website gave me high hopes, although the photos on their website left me a tad worried. Since the place had recently become part of the Best Value Inn chain, I was hoping the most expensive room ($180 with tax for a Saturday night for a waterfront) was the first to be updated. HOWEVER, my worries were confirmed when we opened the door to our waterfront room.
The carpet at the doorway was DARK & STAINED. It felt dirty when we took my shoes off. The room WAS probably top of the line-BACK IN THE 70'S. It was a trip back in time. The room was not actually dirty, it just looked dirty. It had old dirty looking baseboard heating, old draperies& bedspread, dark wood paneling, old lighting, college dorm looking furniture and the old blue & yellow tiled bathroom, complete with petrified bug on the ceiling. The bath towels (although clean and white) couldn't be any thinner.
We heard the continental breakfast bar was just coffee and vending machine danishes set up in the 8 x 10 lobby where you checked in.
THE PLUS SIDE - Quiet & convenient Location. Some of the lower lodging rates for the area (believe it or not). Room did not smell like a motel, Bathroom was clean (except for bug in corner), Bed was comfortable, water pressure good, air conditioning worked & at least that bug WAS dead.
If you just need to drop your head on a pillow without spending over $200.00 for a room, I would say this Motel is okay-but don't expect anything near finer hotel standards.
