Checked in. Examined the bed for bugs and immediately found a live bug under the mattress. Roach? Checked back out! I thought Travelodge would be better than this. Never found anything in a bedbug check during our travels until this.

We wanted a place to stay for our trip to put in bay this was in our price range. It has been newly remodled and for a two star hotel it was really cute. The best part is the view of the lake it sits right on it, they have a little walkway with benches so you can sit and see the beautiful sunsets. The pool as everyone has mentioned is very small but at least they have one. A cute little hotel to lay your head down after a long day at the islands (which is very close to all the different ferries)!!! The staff seemed friendly and the breakfast was not bad it had cereal, donuts, bagels, muffins, fruit and lots more. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that there was spider webs everywhere and me with a fear of spider freaked out when i took a stoll at night and realized there was spiders in every post and corner they can make a web. Apparently no matter how many times they clean the webs the next day they they are back again, the spiders come out at night catch the bugs then hide during the day. So just be careful when you lean againist a post or bench I don't know what kind they are but pretty big!! And just so everyone know its not just this hotel they are all over the area and island. Other then that I recommend this hotel during the week with a family the rates drop like crazy. Its close to island adventure which has bumper boats, go karts and golf great fun for the family. And the two restaurants that were really good food at a good price are crows nest and cross winds.

Room Tip: Its up to you but i wouldnt pay extra to have the view of the lake, to me its not worth it if you...

My fiancee and I were so pleased with this place! We spent an entire day at the hotel just to relax and talk to other guests.
Everyone was friendly! We even had a hotel employee that overheard us saying we were going to the Safari, and she brought us coupons right to the pool!
Affordable, quaint, within range of anything! Will be staying again!

The outdoor pool was small, but fine, but our concern and everyone we talked to concern was that the pool has a ladder that is too hard to get up out of and no railing at the steps in the shallow end to get in and out, it made it impossible for disabled and ederly to get in the pool and that was one of the reason we chose the hotel, because it had an outdoor pool and by the lake. The other concern was twice we didn't get someone to come to our room while we were there for a week, for towels and to clean our room, I had to go get my own towels and toilet paper, would love to stay here again, but the concerns need to be addressed..

Room Tip: Look at reviews people put on there websites and don't just look at one, look at a few, don'...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Travelodge because we were going up to Put in Bay for the day and did not want to spend the money on a hotel on the island. The Travelodge was great for what we needed. It was right on the lake, which was really nice. The room was older looking, and a little smoky, but we requested a smoking room so it was expected. Everything was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the price was right. If you just need a place to sleep for the night, I would not hesitate staying here. The worst part about it was the free breakfast. They had about 3 things to choose from, but that was not a big deal to us at all. If you are not planning a fancy getaway, and just want to check out the area, this is perfect. It was about a 10 minute drive to the Miller Ferry.

The Travelogde in Port Clinton Oh was pleasant overall. The front desk was very helpful and knowledgable. She knew exactly how many lights (4) then turn left and you were at the ferry in know time at all. A very short drive down the street and you were on your way to Put In Bay!! The room was very clean and inviting when we first arrived. The pool and the pier overlooking Lake Erie was a welcome sight. Continental breakfast wasn't extravagent but was clean and nicely put together. Coffee was good!! Mantainance could have been better because the garbage can near the pier needed emptied more often due to the holiday weekend and the pool, although nice most of the time, was starting to look a little cloudy in the extreme heat of the 4th of July holiday. The atmosphere was more Florida like and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hats off to the girls at the front desk (all shifts) for giving us advice on good eats, directions and towns closeby (Marblehead , for one) and interesting sights to see!! Everyone staying at the hotel seemed to really enjoy sitting on the benches on the pier overlooking the lake, either early in the morning or at sunset. Just a perfect spot! We would definetily stay at the Travelodge in Port Clinton again. Oh yes, The beds were very cozy! ZZZzzzzzzz:)

Room Tip: It would be nice to have a room with the view of the lake but our room was very quiet and we always...

The room was nice and it was conveniently located, but the staff wasn't so hot. I indicated we were taking the ferry last Sunday and the staff didn't offer details on their shuttle, didn't provide directions, and didn't offer any help. Two minutes of the front desk's time that afternoon would have saved us $10 in parking, driving around looking for the dock, missing the ferry because we couldn't find the dock, and the hour plus wait for another ferry. Next time we're staying in Marblehead I think. Much cuter and the people seem more helpful. If Port Clinton had nature trails, places to walk/run, a cute coffee shop, or a nice place to spend the morning, I couldn't find it.
