“Average Motel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

Ordinary basic hotel but nothing special. Rooms were comfortable enough but rather bland and looked overdue for a make-over . Motel gave impression that they were doing what they had do but not trying to do anything extra. Okay if you are just staying the night but not for any longer.

I was traveling for buisness. I chose this hotel because of its location, no bed bugs and TripAdvisor reviews.

The location is great, some rooms have a lake view and the lake is just across the street. Good restaurants located close by also. When checking in, I did have an issue. There was some women sitting behind the desk using their computer. I asked if there was a hotel employee to check my in. The women mentioned that she was on break and as a courteousy she would check me in. This made me uncomfortable because it made me feel like I was inconviencing her. She was very knoweldgble about the area and told me about features of the hotel.

The room is nice with updated TV and good cleanliness. The room was located between the parking lot and inner hallway. It was very convienent to unload luggage a foot away from the door while having quick access through the second door to get to the lobby.

Good channel selection with a comfortable night sleep. This hotel would be great for families due to the large room size, while accomidating buisness or leasure travelers. I will highly rrecommend best western. Yes it may be a little worn but overall a good experience.
They had a decent selection for breakfast and checkout was quick and easy.

Very impressed with the Best Western in Port Clinton, Ohio. The room rate was great, the room clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was very limited but there are enough restaurants nearby to make up for that.

Okay experience. The room was fine. The bed was not comfortable. We kept rolling to the center of the bed!! The breakfast was non-existent. We ended up going to a local restaurant for breakfast even though we were told that there would be a breakfast provided at the hotel.

In Port Clinton for class reunion visit. Had stayed here before so was aware of their good and bad attributes. The room was large and a real plus was that our room opened into the main corridor as well as to the parking area so we were able to park right by our door. Makes carrying luggage in and out a breeze. The breakfast was nothing spectacular--the usual budget motel offering. The staff was wonderful--both the desk and housekeepers. The bed wasn't the most comfortable and could probably warrant replacement. Lots of very good local restaurants in the area with fresh local fish. Convenient location is a real plus.

Room Tip: The king non-smoking rooms on the ground floor are super convenient. They open to the main corridor...

It's not a Marriott/Fairfield or a Hampton but you'll pay the same price. If you travel with dogs, it works out fine. They're pet friendly. Wo'rst complimentary breakfast, ever. Very poor quality. Limited selections. Best part was a bowl of cereal and Dannon yogurt. Those items are pretty standard everywhere.

At check in, they treated us as they did not care. We asked for a different kind of room (queen/king in stead of double), but that was not possible. As a BW plat. member I expected something else. I was even willing to pay but it was just like she did not care at all about it.
Room was quite big. There is a big safe indeed. Room had a view over the lake across the street (which was not that busy)
Breakfast was not up to par. Patties and eggs, but very gross. The waffle maker dough was so sticky, it was hard to get something.
The fire alarm rang a few times, at 11 pm and 6 am. No fire at all. Too sensitive?

I am sorry we were not able to give you a Queen or King room. We do not have Queen beds on the property. Our Kings are limited. Perhaps there were none available. I apologize if our
desk clerk acted with an uncaring attitude. We want all of our guests to have a pleasant stay with us. Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your business.
