Fantastic view of the lake - spectacular sunrises and sunsets - which was by far the BEST part. We had two comfortable queen beds in the room and a mini-fridge and microwave which were very useful. The room could have been cleaned a little better (it wasn't unbearable, but there were dead bugs in the windowsill and dusty corners and cobwebs in the bathroom - but I'm a clean freak and my husband and daughter kept reminding me it was on the BEACH!) Also, management should consider putting up some towel bars - there were NONE in the bathroom or near the sink which would be nice to have. Other than those two minor things, the motel is comfortable and peaceful. The great location, beach and wonderful desk staff (especially John) made it well worthwhile and we had a great time. "Dock's" bar and grill was hopping on Saturday night and the band was good - we really enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to music and having a nice cold beer. Also, we had our morning coffee on the deck, enjoying the sunrise and listened to the birds - it was awesome! We went to Cedar Point one day and Kelly's Island another so the Beachfront Resort was a perfect home base. Another MUST do is a vist to a new restaurant called Kokomo Bay - the hotel can direct you - it's just across the bridge on Madison and it is EXCELLENT! Thank you, John, for the recommendation.
I drive myself crazy reading reviews and researching every hotel stay, and I have to say that the previous reviews were right on and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again - I'd just bring a small bottle of Clorox Clean-up to tidy up a bit more because it would make ME feel better!
As for rates, I think the almost double price on Saturday ($199) was a bit high, but $109 for Sunday & Monday was more in line for the pretty simple room. However, each time we sat on the deck and enjoyed the spectacular views, we knew that's what we were paying for!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Beachfront to couples and families planning to visit the Port Clinton area.
