We stayed at the Beachfront Resort last week for a couple of nights and had a great time. Everyone we met (and we met A LOT of people) were sooo nice. Mary at the front desk was very helpful in offering recommendations for restaurants, bars, discount tickets for Jet Express, etc. The motel is rather simple, but it's affordable, clean and has all the amenities we needed for a couple of nights. Beds were comfortable, we couldn't hear people in the rooms next to us.
The motel is directly on a small beach with easy entrance to the lake (no rocks, etc.). You can walk very far out into the water from this location. There is also a deck overlooking the water with plenty of lounge chairs, picnic tables, etc. There's a volleyball net, cornhole boards, lots of beach lounge chairs. There's also a really nice outdoor bar which has recently been completely renovated and a restaurant. Directly adjacen there is jet ski, paddleboat and kayak rentals, which is very convenient. I wouldn't say the motel is within walking distance of the Jet Express, but it's a very short drive.
Only a few small negatives: only one-cup coffee makers in the room, and the coffee in the lobby is pretty nasty. Continental breakfast is served at the hotel across the street. And on Friday morning there was some heavy machinery making noise early in the morning, redistributing sand on the beach. I think this was in preparation for the beach party that was scheduled for later that day, but really? 7:30 a.m.??
We'll be back. We had a great time and would highly recommend the motel if you're looking to get away for a couple nights or if you want to stay near Put in Bay but don't want to pay the high prices over there.
