“Stayed for three nights while visiting the area. Fishing...”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

Stayed for three nights while visiting the area. Fishing and going to Put In Bay. First time in area and had a great time. Will not be staying at the Travelodge when we return to area. It was very clean and bed was very comfortable. Room was very musty smelling since I guess and been locked up all winter. Towels were very rough and didn't have enough first day. Locks on doors of all three rooms wouldn't work half the time. One of our rooms had to be moved to another room due to lock. Breakfast could have been a little more to offer from our stays over the years in other facilities around the USA. The rooms was very clean though.
It needed new pillows, had odor.
One room also lost all hot water on third morning.

The hotel had just opened for the summer season so it was minimal at best. The rooms smelled a little closed up and the door locks were a problem. The front desk had someone coming in the next day but when we tried to get into our first room, we tried 3 different keys. This meant me walking back and forth to the front desk. Finally, the front desk came with me and he couldn't even get in the room with a hard key. We were with 2 other parties. Both of them had the same problem one time or another over the weekend. Pretty scary when your stuff is locked in the room. The room over all was clean. Towels were not replenished fully. We had to go ask for wash cloths and hand towels the second day. Breakfast was less than a continental. Cold cereal, apples, oranges, hard boiled eggs, donuts and toast. By the second day, we were stopping elsewhere for breakfast. On the last day, one of our parties had no hot water. By this time, it is too late to change rooms. So they left without a shower. This maybe better later in the season. I will say it was the most reasonable rate around and I can probably guess why.

I wasn't aware that we were booking a hotel that closed down for the off season. The rooms smelled like moth balls, and they were having massive problems with their key cards. In the four days we stayed, our key card erased at least twice a day, in which I had to stand in line at the lobby for 10-15 minutes while they served other guests or finished paperwork before they could fix our keys so we could get back into our room. Each staff member had a "don't give a crap" kind of attitude. Like, "We just opened, so what do you want us to do about it?" One guy even said, "It's not just your keys, if that makes you feel any better." It didn't make me feel any better.

Day 2, housekeeping didn't come at all. Day 3, she took our dirty towels but didn't leave clean ones. She emptied one of two trash bins, but not the other, and didn't take any of the trash we'd accumulated in four days. She didn't refresh our coffee tray either.

Breakfast was very basic, toast, bagels, muffins, cereal. The coffee was out when we got there and not refilled until we were done eating.

The hotel is convenient to route 2, downtown Port Clinton, and all the areas attractions. It was nice being right on the lake. That's the only good I can say about this place.

Overall a basic place to sleep that could have been a 2-3/5, made completely disappointing by bad management and an apathetic staff.

Stayed at the Travelodge memorial day weekend.

The good: Standard size rooms. Property is on the lake.

The Bad: Toilet was not clean, had no hot water and had to change rooms. Hot water in the new room was luke warm at best. Found a long hair in the bed. Coffee stains on the tv channel list. Poor air conditioner. Luckily it was in the 60's during the trip otherwise it would have been tough if it was hot out. Also the beds were very hard (cheap matresses). They had the absolute worst towels we had ever used. They felt like sand paper on your body. Lastly the breakfast is horrible only a couple cereals, some bagels, muffins and doughnuts.

For the ~$125 nt I paid I was expecting better. I travel to virginia for business and for $125, I get a very nice room (suite) with a couch, flat screen and fridge. Not to mention a nice bathroom that is very clean. Also the breakfast is a full eggs, bacon, sausage and they even have an omelet station with someone there to cook you an omelet.

Bottom line: Don't come here expecting much. Port Clinton was busy for memorial day weekend and the travelodge was maybe at 40% capacity. Now you know why.

If you can try and find a better place than this one.

While the staff were not rude, they certainly weren't customer focused - seemed annoyed to have to be there. Room was clean inside. Nice access to waterfront for watching the birds on the bay. Breakfast is minimal continental. Offered best rate in the area but not a high quality establishment.

Nice, clean, and affordable! We were in Port Clinton for a fishing trip. Travelodge is close to all the major attractions and both ferry services to the islands. The rooms are very clean and comfortable.
