Clinton Inn and Suites
Ranked #12 of 17 Hotels in Port Clinton
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

We were a little cautious about staying here after the reviews. We went in and were greeted right away, they let us look at room first. Clean, smelled well comfortable beds and close to everything oh and free shuttle to/from Jet Express! Quiet family orientated not a drunken party hotel. We came with a 10 yr old and 18 yr old. They offered us a roll away bed for the younger one. Nice place and would stay again!

Stayed: July 2014, traveled with family

We reserved the room before I reviewed all the reviews. Don't let the reviews fool you. The hotel was nice. Friendly workers and was nice overall. Hall way was a little dirty, but that is to be expected and breakfast was a joke, but I would definitely go back to this hotel in the future.

This nice hotel is right on the lake. The view is simply amazing. The staff is very friendly and helpful and answered all of our questions. And from not being around this area, we had plenty. The room we had was very clean and comfortable. I will definitely be booking with this hotel again. Kudos, Clinton Inn. and thank you for a wonderful stay

Room Tip: try to get a room with the lake view. Beautiful sunrise and sunset!

We had a great experience in this hotel. Booked through Expedia and got a lovely, spacious suite. It was huge and perfect for our family of 5. The pool right next to the lake was lovely. The front-desk staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The Expedia.com description wasn't very helpful. Had to call hotel directly to get specific info...

Staff was great especially Sue. I will definately stay here again. Might not be the best Hotel in Port Clinton but the staff makes your stay very enjoyable. Price very affordable. Rooms was clean and quiet. Breakfast in the morning was good.

We had the unfortunate experience of staying at this hotel in July of 2013. As we hadn't made a reservation in the area, we stopped to check availability at this facility. To their credit, they processed our check-in 45 minutes early. We requested a king-sized balcony room and were assured one was available, but received a king-sized without a balcony. We returned to the front desk and were given another room (this time w/balcony), but it had not yet been cleaned. We left and explored Port Clinton for about an hour.

We returned to a "prepared" room that started bad and got progressively worse throughout the evening. The bathroom had no toilet paper - that was the first trip to the guest services desk. When I flushed the toilet, it backed up almost to the point of overflowing. That and no trash can in the room meant a second trip to the guest services desk and we were told the maintenance would fix the problems. To give the maintenance staff time, we visited the pool for about an hour. When we returned, the guest services attendant met us in the lobby with a trash can and a request that we use the plunger in our room. She did offer us another room if that didn't meet our needs. At that point it was getting late and we'd been traveling all day, so we decided to stick it out.

To explain the rest of the problems would take several paragraphs, so I'll simply provide a list: broken sink fixture, ice container not emptied from previous guests, candy wrapper and dead gnats between the mattress and box springs, refrigerator dirty, three inch thick layer of ice in the freezer, no toiletries, had not been vacuumed, clock unplugged, cigarette ashes on back of toilet (non-smoking room), crushed cigarette butt on the floor, mold on the inside of the shower curtain.

The desk attendant was friendly but overwhelmed; we were not the only ones complaining about things that day. The only good thing I can say about this facility is the outside grounds/pool were clean and well maintained.

We left early the next morning and spent the remainder of our trip just down the street in the Travelodge, where the room was clean and the service efficient.

If you are thinking about the Best Budget Inn, I strongly advise you to reconsider.

As I checked in with a Retire COL it took at least 10 minutes to determine if a room was available. I was given room keys that did not work. When rekeyed I returned to my assigned room
opened the door to find someone springing out of bed to see who I was. The room assigned to me was already occupied.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone atending the National Matches at Camp Perry Ohio.
