We had the King Jacuzzi with a stunning view of the water. Cozy chairs on the deck to sit and relax in. The weather didn't cooperate for the weekend, so we didn't enjoy the small beach or outside too much. Our room had a mini kitchenette, and comfy bed. The not so goods: Shower needs mold cleaned from grout area,... More

So don't let the exterior of a long ago hotel fool you into thinking it is a run down roach motel. We had an amazingly lovely room. Lots of room, corner room with a wonderful lake front view from every window, shades that could be drawn for privacy if wanted, a very large Jacuzzi in room, the bathroom was nice... More

This was one of the smaller hotels I have ever stayed in but it was perfect for a one night get-away. We had a suite on the second floor and as we sat inside with the door open we could see the beach and Lake Erie from in the room...the room was very clean and decorated nicely...the grounds of the...

Very pleasant stay. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. I really enjoyed sitting on the deck on the comfortable patio furniture listening to the band play at Dock's. Beautiful atmosphere and a short walk to the Jet Express.

We've stayed here a couple times. It's on the beach so you're always tracking in sand. We actually brought a broom and dust pan. To use the indoor pool and for breakfast you have to walk across the street to their sister hotel.

I love this place so much. It's perfect. It's right on the beach and so cute. My children have never seen the ocean, but this is close enough. It definitely has an ocean feel about it. We also eat at Dock's restaurant that is next door (on the beach) and also visit the Safari while we are there too. I... More

The good the bad and the ugly for this spot right on Lake Erie. The good is since the wife and I have been coming up to the lake multi times per year since the 1980’s you cannot beat the location. Beachfront Resort is right on the lake literally within feet. Their sitting deck and the beach is steps from... More

Searched high and low for a nice place with (direct) access to the lake. This is the only option I found. WAY over priced. Clean as clean can be, for a hotel of this age. Be prepared for zero carpet, long time since I walked on cold tile floors, yuk. Hot water is abundant. Free WiFi, desk for your computer... More

This is my second review, it seems that the first review was not posted. We booked this property because of the description, Resort! By no means is this hotel a resort. The room has not been updated in years. It was old, smelled & the mattresses were paper thin! It had a tacky in room jacuzzi. We had no problem... More
