This was a nice quiet place to stay! I liked it, for my husband though, not so much. If you watch TV, this place is not good. Not very good cable, no TV guide, so you never know what channel is what. You have to rent refrigerators (10.00 a day), there are no microwaves, the air conditioner had black mold...

I agree with other reviewers - property has its pros & cons. It is not a luxury resort experience. There are not the amenities you would expect for the price. The breakfast is lame - we went to a restaurant the second morning. The rooms & furnishings are not top shelf, but they are adequate & ours were clean. Daughter's...

I would rate our stay in the cottages as 3.5. Absolutely a great place for young children, they couldn't get enough of the pools and playgrounds. Beach are was just ok, didn't see anyone actually swimming in the lake. Cottage was bare bones (bring everything) but it was fine. If I didn't have young children I wouldn't recommend it. But...

Stayed her 3 nights mid-week. They have a special for that. It said Jacuzzi room but apparently that just means there are Jacuzzi jets in the tub in your bathroom. People were very nice. We had a courtyard room which did not come with a refrigerator or microwave but we were able to rent a mini fridge for $10 a...

Our first visit to the Port Clinton area of Ohio was last year and we loved it. We decided this year to try something new in a similar area. We found the South Beach resort on Trip Advisor and gave it a try. We stayed in the hotel, they do offer cottages that you could rent one week at a...

We checked in and asked for a refund within 5 mins due to condition of room. They have a no refund policy. Room had a horrible smell. Mold on ceiling and along tile. Staff was extremely rude. I would advise to find elsewhere to stay.

Stayed for one night after a fishing trip with my son and grandson. The room was very nice. Spotlessly clean. There was a Jacuzzi tub in the corner. The beds were comfortable. No refrigerator or microwave. Apparently there is an extra charge for these, which seems a bit ridiculous. The pools, playground, and bay view were great. I would stay...

I like the location for our family because the area hotels can have alot of heavy partiers. All kinds of stuff for activities and the view from our patio is awsome. Continental breakfast was somewhat lame... (go to Big Boppers down the road). Nevertheless we'll be back.

Thank hydroarp
