This was our first trip up to Lake Erie from Cincinnati, where we've lived for 12 years. We are a family of four with two teens and two dogs, a dachshund and a mix. I'd like to counteract the negative reviews here, especially the ones that get personal. This was a very friendly establishment. Everyone we met who worked at the motel was wonderful. The other guests - fishermen, bikers, everyone else - were friendly too. How often can you say that about a place where you stayed a few days? The view of the lake is excellent, and I enjoyed sitting out on the lawn just reading and taking pictures. I saw a lot of birds, including, over three days, several bald eagles fishing. The beach itself isn't really a place to hang out - this is a lake, after all, and things wash up there and smell - but there are other places to sit. We stayed in the two-level unit in the main building overlooking the pool. It was definitely cool and rainy while we were there, and the mayflies were swarming, but the pool was cleaned - and cleaned well - every day. My kids, who are used to swimming in this kind of weather, enjoyed it. The unit was fine, but not really a bargain for three days. Maybe the other reviewer here who stayed there was referring to a weekly rate for it in saying it was affordable. We booked online and maybe paid too much. That said (and that's the only reason this is four stars instead of five), we would definitely come back and try to rent one of the houses next time if we could. We enjoyed our stay. I will post some of my pictures.
