My husband and I are Beaver Valley Power Station employees and recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Port Clinton/Catawba for seven weeks on a temporary assignment at the Davis Besse Nuclear Power Station to support their Steam Generator Replacement/Refueling Outage.
The hotel is conveniently located near shopping and restaurants, which was a bonus. It was nicely maintained and clean, with a delightful breakfast selection. The pool and hot tub area was lovely, and impeccably clean. We enjoyed the hot tub on several occasions. The room was clean and quite comfortable. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They are what make this hotel outstanding! When encountering a few very minor snags initially, they were quickly and efficiently resolved. But what stood out for us was the fact that they accommodated the DB workers by making a beautiful breakfast available each morning by 0400-0415. That was VERY much appreciated by those of us who needed to be on the road by 0430!
I must say that ALL the employees we encountered were friendly and efficient, but the one that stood out to us was Carol. Her work ethic most certainly exceeded every expectation, and she made an outstanding effort to make sure we had what we needed before we headed out to work. She clearly took pride in representing the Holiday Inn Express
There were, however, a couple of negatives. The parking lot could have been better maintained when dealing with significant snowfall. Clearing thick ice away periodically would have made the parking lot much safer. The worst thing of all was the fact that the area under the canopy provided for check-in and unloading had a surface that was absolutely treacherous when damp or wet. It is an accident just waiting to happen. Not a matter of “if”, but when! I hoped every day that it wasn’t going to be one of us. Hopefully this will be recognized and resolved with perhaps a coating of a safer surface applied.
All in all, if given the opportunity to return for the next DB Outage, we will most certainly choose the comforts of the Holiday Inn Express for our lodging needs.
