If you are down to Earth and willing to see the positives of this hotel, then you'll love it here! This is an older hotel, that has a river side marina in the back where you can watch the boats go by all day and night. Adjacent is the Bait House bar that has live music and fire pits to enjoy summer evenings water side just steps from your room. Efforts are made with pretty flowers and plants all around. Jet Express terminal is just a couple blocks away, so you can leave your car and walk. Also, there are several restaurants and bars within walking distance such as Subway, Marco's Pizza, Wendy's...and an Irish restaurant and pub called McCarthy's across the street that I highly recommend! I had a waterfront room that was just amazing, and the 3 days I stayed I enjoyed watching the boats from my room. My bed was comfortable, and I had a fridge and microwave. The bathrooms are SMALL, but the room was adequate with a great air conditioner, TV, and Wifi service. I had the pleasure of talking with several of the employees too, who were all making sure I was happy, and I was. I've stayed in dumps and I've stayed in 5 star hotels, and each place has it's own character. Arlington has it's own as well. I've stayed here in the past and I'll definitely return.

Our trip to Lake Erie was spontaneous we decided to wait until we got in town and find a hotel near the things that we wanted to see and do so we could park the car and walk. The Arlington Inn is very outdated but is is very clean and provided what we needed for a lovely long weekend. Directly on the Lake near restaurants and walking distance to lakefront bars was very convenient and exactly what we wanted for location. We could even walk to jet express to get to the islands. The room is dated, does have a VERY small bathroom and shower stall. There is a microwave and refrigerator. Bed in the room on secord floor that we stayed in was reasonably comfortable. The view from the room was great but the location of places to hang out just steps from our room is what we loved most. This is not a luxury hotel so its all about what you are looking for with your stay/location. For us it was location and Arlington has it. We would stay again.

Booked direct and made requests that was committed too. Upon arrival requests not available because they gave rooms to larger party. Very overpriced with such uncomfortable beds. No in room coffee pot. Will not stay there again. Paid 140. And expected much better. Office worker rude!!!

HORRIBLE!! BEWARE! READ COMPLETE POST!! Shower either scalded or froze me!! No happy medium. Room smelt old and musty maybe because wood walls are so old. Bed was very uncomfortable. Bugs on windowsill. Bathroom old, small and outdated. Showerhead was 4" below my 5'7" husband's head. Asked for lighbulb in bedside lamp be replaced they never did. One lampshade litterally peeling. Exterior hallways are carpeted sort of because it's all nasty and torn up. Metal stairs to 2nd floor had mold in places. They're charging as much as a brand new Fairfield Inn down the road! After being scalded I had to check-out early for better hotel. Told Carolyn at front desk who said she couldn't refund because I'd paid through Expedia (Hotels.com) but would have Debbie the manager call me. Debbie never called. When I notified Hotels.com they called to get approval for refund of unused time and Michelle claimed there was no record of my reservation!!!

Husband and I stayed here while we fished Lake Erie for the spring walleye bite. Very convienent and close to the boat launches. Rooms had all the neccesities including a microwave and mini fridge. Beds were confortable and the room was clean. Ample room to park our boat and plug in. Walking distance to bars and restaurants. Debbie the manager was very helpful and friendly. The only complaint I would have is the room smelt a little musty from being closed up. Nothing a candle didn't fix. Will stay again.
