I traveled all the way from Colon, Panama to visit friends in the Northern Ohio area. Someone recommended that I stay here because of the views of the lakes. The rooms were very clean and gave a comfortable feeling. The price was also reasonable because of the closeness to the downtown area as well as it sitting right along the water. The people in the office were extremely pleasant. I had a few questions for the lady about the area and she seemed to know almost everything about the area and helped me a lot. I got a chance to meet the manager and he was also and very down to earth nice guy. It was my first trip back to the states since I graduated college 5 years ago and the people at this facility truly made it one to remember. Because of their kindness, I plan to stay there every time I come back.

We felt very welcome. This motel has been in the same family since 1951. Has been kept up nicely; added rooms onto it too. On the waterfront; we sat on the patio watching the boats -- and the Jet Express go by, often. Room was very clean; if we asked for anything, it was provided ASAP. Within walking distance to the Jet Express, good restaurants, and shopping. We had a wonderful week end!!!!! Our room faced the water which was an added plus.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the lake; there's no balcony on 2nd floor but you can see further out.

Everyone at your motel was very friendly and helpful.
The room was basically clean. It was a close stay to
Cedar Point Park and much lower priced
than those in Cedar Point, which was my main criteria for
staying here...a low budget place to sleep
My wife was not with on this trip or we would have stayed in
more expensive hotels and I suppose my expectations were
higher because of those normal stays. Many Fairfield Inns I have
paid about $110 and had a waffle for breakfast and pretty
upscale rooms for just a few bucks more.

No pool. No fancy pics on the wall. Pay for local phone calls.
A "motel" with outside doors to each room.

Small things added up to be a bit negative. A light next to the bed
didn't work....bulb out. No remote for the TV seemed odd.
No hook to hang anything like clothes in the bathroom and really
no place to put something down or hang it while in the shower.
No internet, because the signal was not strong enough to connect
from our room. I connected with some other hotel by sitting outside
on the porch for a while. Like I said....Small things.

The great things were the quiet room, friendly staff and a couple of close
local restaurants....a nice fish joint a half black away.

Not bad, but would probably try another local hotel before I would stay again.

We were heart-broken when we came up to the Lake this past weekend for our Anniversary and all rooms were taken! We could not make reservations since they have a minimum of two nights on the weekend - we had only one night we could get away this time. We just crossed our fingers and hoped! Ended up staying down the street at a terrible motel and every time we had to drive past Best Value, our hearts broke again! This is simply the BEST in Port Clinton! We have learned our lesson and will make reservations next time! (My husband and I stopped with our coffees on way out of town and sat on the back deck overlooking the Marina...couldn't leave without a little of this wonderful spot tucked in our visit!) The staff was genuinely very apologetic to us when they told my husband they did not have a room - we understand. Our fault! But you can bet, we will NEVER stay anywhere but with this delightful motel on future visits!! :-)

Our stay at America's Best Value Inn (Lakeland Motel) was much better than we expected. Even though the motel itself is a little outdated and needs some remodeling, the room was exceptionally clean, the staff was very nice and accommodating, and the rate was great compared to some of the other motels in the area. The patio by the boat dock is great for just sitting and relaxing and watching boats go by. The motel is right in town and you can walk to Jet Express and restaurants. We will definitely stay there again the next trip to Port Clinton.

Room Tip: We did not specify that we wanted a room with a view because we weren't in the room except to sl...

Just looking for a night get away, we remembered this hotel in proximity to a couple great places. Not expecting anything luxurious, we loved this place. The staff was so nice. The location provided us walking distances to so many things! The rooms were older, but clean. The bathroom was very small, and we never did get the shower working just right. Overall, this was a fantastic value, and we really enjoyed our stay. We will be back.

We enjoyed our 11 days at the Best Value Inn Port Clinton, built in 1951, a small step back in time. With a great location and wonderful staff it made our stay in Port Clinton wonderful. We were there for Camp Perry's CMP National meet which was only approximately 4 miles from the range, which was great! Yes, I would recommend this Inn for future stays.
