One of our relatives reserved a room a year ago, planning to go to a party nearby. However, they found a cottage and bought it. They had no need to use the hotel. They had been charged $280. for two nights but were told that they would only get a hotel credit and no money back. So they asked us... More

Had to call the office at 3am bc the tv next to us was too loud! Beds were terrible! Glad we brought our own blankets and... More

Such a quaint, quiet, friendly place. Staff was warm, welcoming and helpful. Guests were all peaceful and happy and friendly. Beautiful views, great location. Lots of stuff to do as a family on the resort property and around the area. Just to upgrade I would add safes to the rooms and mini fridges!

This resort is perfect for families with any age children and if you have a boat, all the better as there is on-site moorage. There are about a dozen cabins complete with kitchens and outdoor barbeque that offer easy access to the children's wading and swimming pools and the adult pool. The children's playground complete with pirate ship, swings and... More

I just stayed at South Beach for Annual Conference. During my three nights there, no one could be bothered to clean the room or refresh the soap or coffee in the room. As I was checked out by the owner, he couldn't even bother to ask how my stay was. The room was fine, just the staff doesn't even care... More

The rooms were clean, but smelled funny. There isn't much privacy on your balcony/patio with the pool and playground right in front of you. If the price was 30%-40% lower, it would have been satisfactory.

We arrived at the South Beach Resort near Port Clinton Ohio and found that since it was late October and the tourist season was over that we were one of the very few guest for the weekend. Since we like to relax on our vacations this was perfect for us. It is located only a few minutes form Port Clinton... More
