“RV sites very spacious”
Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

We are Thousand Trails RV members and this is a member park. We also have been full timing since 2002. The RV sites are very spacious. The park is well maintained and well staffed. A park ranger is at the main gate 24 hours a day for everyone's safety. They have a large club house with a pool table, video arcade games, a small Resturant with very reasonable prices and open most every day. I understand that there is a main Resturant at the resorts INN that is very good and also reasonably priced. We will try it before we leave. There are two pools and two hot tubs, one each outside and one each in doors. The wifi at the park is spotty. We have come to expect this at most parks and is not a big deal as we can use 4G or LTE. All in all, we like this park.

This is the second time we have been to this facilty. The potential is tremendous if some big investor took it over and spent some money. THe upkeep of the cottages and general public bathrooms, showers is very poor..Beautiful pool area inside and out but also in need of some attention. The worst aspects were the Double beds with horrible mattresses, and pillows that all need to be tossed. Also the linens and towels could all be updated.

If you've ever put your money into a pop machine and did not get your pop, you can relate to the frustration of my family at the Erie Island Resort. We arrived for a five day vacation and right off the bat we experienced nothin but disappointment. The hot water in our cottage did not work and it took hours for it to get fixed. The next day we bought wifi for our cabbin, which was a sickening extra amount added to our already outrageous bill. The signal to the Internet was inconsistent and would not last for more than a minute or two. Later on, we attempted to call the front desk for assistance, but was told that they closed at 7pm. Check in was at 4pm, which meant that if we had not luckily pulled in that three hour window, we would have been sleeping in our car for the night. Another day later our hot water went out again. We had been at Cedar Point for the entire day and had to come back to another cold shower. In view of this, we tried going to the recreation center to use their facilities, but were surprised to see that it had been closed an hour earlier than it was supposed to, noting the careless laziness of the staff. In addition, the charge for extra towels and other given amenities was outrageous. For the price of this resort, it is absolutely disposable. I guess that it is a step up from dirt, if you're the kind of person that likes trapping yourself in a financial clamshell.

As we live on Lake Erie we pride ourselves in knowing all the dining establishments and let others know our experience. But the restaurant has been open to the public for several months and we decided to try it out this past Saturday. What a great dinner with great service from Scott and the new chef! Food and dessert (made by chef) were wonderful, wine was high end without being overpriced. We are telling all our friends and neighbors to find this out of the main drag of Port Clinton and that they will not be disappointed. The menu was varied, the setting was elegant without being overdone and the prices much more reasonable than some of the similar local restaurants. We will definitely be back!

We spent the weekend at Erie Islands Resort and Marina for a family reunion. We were 30 people in 5 of their lakeside cabins.
The cabins were the perfect solution, being able to prepare traditional family meals and all come together on a central deck, where the staff was nice enough to set up picnic tables for us. We played games on the lawn, ate most meals there and watched the sunset over the water.
They also have a beautiful and well kept recreational center with a large outdoor pool, snack bar, game room, pool tables, sitting area and more. That was perfect entertainment for the whole family.
We did a couple nearby excursions to the quaint town of Lakeside and to the Safari Drive thru park as well. Next time we'd like to explore the area more, or perhaps take the ferry out to the islands.
The chef prepared a wonderful brunch for us in the hotel restaurant on Sunday before everyone departed.
Joan the manager set all up as we requested and checked in several times during the visit to make sure all was going as we had planned.

We returned to Erie Island Resort for a second visit in March. it was just as good as the first time we stayed. The staff was very attentive, the hotel clean and very relaxing. One change was that they have hired a chef. The food was delicious on both visits. We used the rec center this time--nice sized swimming pool, steam room,jaccuzi, and TV room. We also had the pleasure of meeting the manager, Joan. She was so pleasant to talk with. She told us of all the changes they have made in the last 6 months or so and plans for future updates. We look forward to going back.

We used our Time Share exchange. What suppose to be week of cross country skiing, ice skating turn out to be none of this. The weather just did not cooperate. Our cottage was in front of the river shore. Nice views of the power station and the river. The cottage it self was roomy, could use some table in the rec/family room. Gas fireplace worked. Coffee maker did not. We did ask for new one - never got one. Combination of pots and pans was very poor - lids did not match the pans. Bed was comfortable to sleep on. The cottage it self could use quite a bit of insulation. On windy days/nights the wind is just hauling inside the room. We had to use paper towel to close the gaps on doors to stop the wind blowing inside the unit. One day we set the thermostat at 71 F and 20 minutes late the temperature drop to 68 F. The pool was clean and could use some maintenance. Steam room was new, but it took very long time to build-up the steam as it suppose to be. Spa was worm enough to enjoy it. The main building had lots of Christmas decorations which we enjoy-it. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: It is hard to say - we did not have great experience with our unit
