“Perfect for a weekend get-a-way!”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

If your looking for a place to stay in Marblehead, and believe me, there are few choices, The Lighthouse Resort in Marblehead, for us, was the perfect choice. It is situated right on the shore of Lake Erie and is just a short drive from the Millers Ferry to Put-In-Bay and even closer to the Kelly's Island Ferry. We have stayed there twice and the first time was on the 4th of July and they were serving BBQ ribs the whole weekend. Loved it! We enjoyed our dinners at an outside table while taking in the wonderful view of Lake Erie then later sat on the edge of the lake and watched the firework display from Cedar Point.
The hotel itself, had everything that we expected from a hotel. A restaurant, a pool, gift shop and a bar.
Our room had the basic amenities that we expected, two beds, a mini fridge/microwave, A/C, cable TV, shampoo, soap, conditioner, etc..
Everything was in perfect working order in the room and we had no problems at all with anything.
All in all, it is a very nice and peaceful place to stay. Very nice staff and not to far away from the the local attractions. If we decide to make the trip this year to Lake Erie, we will definately stay at The Lighthouse Resort again!

Very clean, excellent staff. The staff went out of their way to make it a great trip for my wife and I on our anniversary. Very close to Put-in-bay and about 15 minutes from Cedar Point.

I travel to Lake Erie yearly, and I've stayed here each time. The staff, from top to bottom, are very friendly, the rooms are always neat and clean, and the food is excellent! Theres nothing like waking up in the morning, grabbing a cup of coffee, and watching a beautiful sunrise from the open area that they maintain, right across the street. I believe that anyone would be hard pressed to find a nicer place, with the same type of ammeneties, (pool, bar & grill, and a restaurant with seating inside and out), at a better price, or location!

The location for the hotel is good for catching the jet boat to go to the islands. The rooms needed remolded and cleaned. The swimming pool was infested with mosquitos and needed sprayed. Food service in the dinning room was -10, food never arrived after a hour wait. Air conditioner went off in the middle of the night.

The Lighthouse Resort team went out of their way to make our group welcome. Most of our group (around 50 people) stayed for the entire weekend and really enjoyed it. Rooms were great (not fancy), but perfectly acceptable and clean. Our group is a car club and the resort held a car judging and awarded trophys to favorite cars -really unexpected! The buffet dinner in the Executive Center was excellent and the wine selection was wonderful. Breakfast Saturday morning was just as great - the management really knows how to take care of their customers. I would consider booking another group event at this resort - really wonderful!

Read his review and I'll 2nd the opinion. Granted we stayed on "off season". On a cold, rainy April evening, we were the only occupants. It was pretty obvious that the assigned room hadn't been used in several months. There was dust on the counters, the air was stagnant, and the previous review was spot on r.e. the Beds ! Absolutely the worst, Plastic covering a cheap matress, old bedding; just not what one might expect from a "resort".
Granted, we were there on off season with terrible weather but to use the term "resort" to describe this motel is a wee bit of an stretch.

We stayed for 2 nights and would stay here again. The resort was lean friendly and seem to be up to date. The location for looking out at Lake Erie is superb, unobstructed.
