Although we had a nice time visiting the Port Clinton area we would NOT recommend staying at the Bay Shore Inn in its current condition. The check-in was unwelcoming and initially given keys to room already occupied. The room we stayed in included: dirty sheets, dirty comforter blanket, dirty shower curtain, horrible "pillows", 2 broken lights, no ice machine. The... More

Worst place I have stayed in a long time. Bedsheets had blood on them which is a sign there might be bedbugs, Carpet was old, smelly and stained. Wallpaper was falling off the wall. Owner would not refund my money after stating he would. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!

I actually was trying to book a different hotel and had to call hotel.com for assistance. The woman talked me into booking this hotel. It was me, my daughter and my three grand daughters... More

I booked through Expedia and paid for the room. I called to cancel and spoke with "Michelle" who assured me she spoke to Expedia, "they know who I am, I deal with them regularly." I also called Expedia and cancelled. But, I was charged anyway! Michelle is now no where to be found, but a very rude "Amin" said Michelle... More

Certainly wasn't expecting the Ritz Carlton, but i was expecting clean, not stained, possibly not laundered, bath towels and sheets ! A closed swimming pool, due to a pump problem....but I'm guessing by the look of the water it must be a really hard to find part to replace. Nothing, and i mean nothing was clean about this hotel, right... More

We just stayed at this motel and I will tell you this was the worst motel we have ever stayed at. We to wanted to save some money since we felt we only needed a place to sleep since we were going to Put-In-Bay and would like to enjoy ourselves but never again. As they say you get what you... More

I stayed here in July of 2014 while going to Put In Bay for the weekend. My friend booked the hotel because of the price and some of the fairly positive reviews (though obviously we did not do enough research). The first night we got there we noticed that the walls were dirty, towels were stained, and wall art had... More

We booked a non-smoking room but smelled a lil smokey when we first walked in. The tv is still an analog tv. Online it says there's a coffee pot in the room but they make coffee in the morning & provide donuts. It also says there's wi-fi but it's only guaranteed in the lobby. The pillows are flat & there...
