No microwaves, refrigerators or anything in the rooms. There's vending machines if you want a late night snack. The continental breakfast consists of refined carbohydrates such as stale pastries and cold cereal. The coffee was lousy. My wife forgot her toothbrush. Of course the "resort" didn't have any to purchase. The bathtub was dirty. Will not stay here again.

We booked a 3 day 2 night romance package. The view was amazing, the room could use some major updates. The jacuzzi had a couple dead flies in it. We stayed the first night and the following day house keeping did not clean our room. They gave us new towels and pulled the sheets up, they didn’t even take our trash. The bed was incredibly uncomfortable. The walls were paper thin. We didn’t stay the second night. Very disappointed, especially for the price that was paid.

The property is on a beautiful location and well-maintained with friendly staff. Be aware, the hotel will charge an additional $32.50/day "Expedia fee". This fee was NOT mentioned on any of the paperwork I received from the booking company or the resort. When the owner checked me in, she relayed a great deal of information, but never mentioned the additional fee. She brought it up when I returned the keys at check out. Incidentally, I didn't book through Expedia, and was charged the Expedia fee any way.

Randomly booked this resort and everything was perfect. We had the king size bed room with a lake view and it was perfect for the two of us. The property is very well maintained and spotless. Hotel staff were very nice and friendly. Will definitely plan on staying here again.

The grounds and location are fantastic. I've never stayed in the hotel, but this is my second time visiting Cottages, beds low grade, springs poking for a week!the cleanliness is something to be desired. The crud in the corners if the bathroom😳gross!could have used a knife to scrape it up. Not to mention making the reservation I was told price $1500. And getting there told $240. More than quoted!!!! No receipt no nothing! Lights in bathroom had to be kept on because the" pull chain " wouldn't turn off! Never again.

Now the view we had from our room was great. But the rooms are dated, can’t use jacuzzi after a certain time and for the fact that they don’t give you a total price until you check out is trash. Not worth the money the charge I could’ve stay at the 9 in downtown Cleveland for 2 nights and would’ve had over a 100 in change. Thought about staying again until I saw the final bill never again. Way way over priced.

As far as the room goes the bath room sink was not draining good at all , mattresses and pillows need replaced , you have to pay $10 extra for a fridge or microwave each and no iron or ironing boards in rooms . Breakfast leaves a lot to be desired , donuts, cereal, juices and coffee and some fruit. Our room was well over 300.00 a night !

Unfortunately, I have not had a positive experience with South Beach Resort Hotel Cottages and Marina; particularly with the management, Mr. Kolar. I originally booked a room reservation back in April for my husband and I's anniversary in June. My daughter however tested positive for Covid-19 and we were unable to go. I called the resort with a 48 hour notice that we would have to cancel and was told that I would receive a call from management. The phone call never came and between phone calls on my end, I finally got an email address to speak with management. I reached out to Mr. Kolar about my situation asking for a refund. I was ignored and sent many email messages and then did hear back. I was told this was their policy: RESERVATION CANCELLATION POLICY: NO REFUNDS. If you cancel your reservation more than 14 days prior to the original arrival date, your deposit is good for up to 1 year. Cancellation 14 days or less prior to the original arrival date will result in a loss of entire deposit. NO-SHOWs are charged the entire stay. However, I did look over their website and there is no mention of this cancellation policy. I was not made aware of this and it was nowhere in writing when I booked my reservation. I am still requesting my full refund but have been ignored again. I find this to be very unprofessional. If the management is going to have these policies then it needs to be made clear to the costumer on the website and confirmed through email. This did not happen in my case. I am still requesting my full refund since I did give 48 hours notice due to something out of my control. Please be aware if you are planning to book with South Beach Resort Hotel Cottages and Marina!

The other reviews on here have been spot on and I should have paid more attention to them prior to booking. The room itself was clean enough, dated and nothing special. You can see the spots on the ceiling where previous jacuzzi tub leaks happened above. View is mostly of the pools and volleyball area, with lake pretty far in the distance. The walls are pretty thin, so assume that you’ll hear everything above and next to you. No mini frig in the room crazy…go take one week’s worth of rates paid, hit Walmart and get them. The whole quiet hours/curfew thing is understandable since there are so many young families staying there. But for a single adult traveler, I didn’t appreciate being spoken to with an advance lecture about the rules like I was a teenager. So much for welcoming customer service. Cold free breakfast is mostly cereal, some muffins, donettes and a brown banana or two. Will not stay here again.

I have a large group looking for lodging for an event two years away. I thought this place might work well for our group. When I looked, the queen hotel rooms were listed at $129-$169 per night (there is confusing pricing on their website, it says that room starts at $129 on one page and the next it says it starts at $149). The website also says that you need to call to book the cottages. I called this "resort" and spoke to Fred, who I believe is the owner's father. I asked if they would be willing to open the cottages earlier than typical for this event, if we could book them all. Fred explained that due to April’s questionable weather in NE Ohio, they could not open the cottages earlier than May. However, he noted that the hotel would be open and would work for our group. I talked to the group and we agreed that this hotel would work. The very next day we went to book the rooms and the same room was $401/night!! This feels so dirty and slimy. These rooms are still listed at the $149 price the weekends before and after!! This exorbitant price increase was never mentioned when I talked to Fred the day before! This is NE OHIO, in April, at a 3-star hotel with iffy reviews! Needless to say, we are not staying here where the owners are shysters. I should have heeded the warnings of the many other 1-star reviews. BEWARE.
