Arrived home yesterday afternoon and wanted and wanted to let others know about the Beachfront Resort in Port Clinton, Ohio. It may be a mistake because when we want to make reservations the next time, it may be full! Just remember my review and see if we can get in!
We arrived on Wednesday about 12:30 p.m. and we able to check in right away. Margie, the manager, was so friendly (as were Wendy and Diane). We were given a room on the second floor and got our bags in the room and then decided to go to Docks to have some lobster bisque for lunch. On our way down the steps, Margie stopped us and said that she noticed I was limping (I had a minor surgery on my leg) and she would see if she could move our room to the first floor. We were eating on Docks' patio and could see Margie and Wendy moving our stuff downstairs to a first floor room. Then Margie walked over and gave us our new room keys. After lunch we decided to sit on the lounge chairs to catch some sun. Then it was back to Docks for dinner.
They are renovating the rooms at the Beachfront Resort. Our first room had carpeting, the second room has been tiled (a much better idea for a place on the beach). The room had a small fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, and a small bar sink. I wish there had been towel racks in the room. The bathroom just had one hook above the toilet and no towel racks around the sinks. The air conditioning was WONDERFUL! As a previous report stated, there were no phones in the room. Certainly did not miss them. Everyone has cell phones anyway. What we did miss was the remote to the television. It did not work and there was no one at the front desk (it closes at 6 p.m.) to check with.
Thursday was our day at Put In Bay. We were told that there is a continental breakfast over at the Commodore Perry. We tried it and found it was so-so. Then on our way to The Jet Express. The Jet Express was easy to walk to right across the drawbridge. Just remember, you have to walk back across and if you have bought too much wine at the winery, it has to be carried back along with everything else you bought on the island! We turned on the TV and remembered the remote did not work. I took it to the front desk and found another guest was there with her and was having the same problems. Diane tried changing the batteries. That worked for the woman in the room beside ours, but not in our remote. She then called the manager over at the Commodore Perry who brought new batteries over. They did not work either. We told them to forget it because it wasn't that important. Then it was across the street to Mr. Ed's at the Commodore Perry and their "famous pizza." After dinner, we sat on the deck at the Beachfront Resort and listened to the entertainment across the beach at Docks.
Friday we got up and packed up so we could get on the road at a decent hour. When we went to turn in our keys, it was like leaving a friend. Margie was there and kept apologizing about the remote.
Everything we needed was within walking distance. We never took the car out of the parking lot. I would definitely stay there again.
