This place is DISGUSTING, THE STAFF IS RUDE, AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MANAGEMENT HERE. My main complaints are there no fitted sheets so the flat ill fitted sheet moves in the night and your leg touches nasty hotel mattress, paint in the bathroom is peeling off the wall, and there is mold black mold by the AC unit. The sheets were like 5 thread count very scratchy and uncomfortable. We talked to other guests and they were also upset with their stay. One man told me that he believed it was a $40 a night hotel. I agreed. Dont come here with your family. You won't sleep and will be disappointed with everything. The freaking wifi doesn't even work. The breakfast isnt included. They give you a voucher for $7 off your breakfast not free, you still have to pay $9 a person. Mark my words. If the rest of the world caught on fire and this was the last available place to stay, I'd kick it in the woods. Do not by any means bring your family here. The disgusting part is this hotel is the fact that they have no smoking signs on all the rooms but it smells like cigarettes. The "owner" is a liar. She told me that the owner would call me and that they were off site. She then she told my husband she was the owner. Her name was Kim. When I confronted the "owner" she hid from me in back then took jabs at me saying that she wanted to evaluate me at my job?!?!?!? IM ON VACATION NOT WORK. As someone who has worked in the medical field their claim that fitted sheets are more sanitary is BULL shes cheap and won't buy fitted sheets. That's the real reason. Hospitals have plastic mattresses. Not cloth. Gross gross gross. Take my word for it guys. Dont do it.

PRO: Mike at the counter was very accommodating. CON:Room 313(3rd floor) smelled like wet dog! Elevator was not working; after 10 knee surgeries, stairs are difficult on a good day. The Ice machine on the 1st floor wasn't working. No fitted sheets on the beds. Shower curtain 5" short of closing and hung 6" too low. Beach front not accessible due to sharp rocks and erosion. I asked Miike for the best price he quoted $198/night (Thursday).+ $24 tax. No AARP or AAA discounts. After agreeing on the cost I later found this hotel on the internet for $139 for the same night! This hotel is way overpriced. Discount coupon given at check-in for Sunday brunch reducing cost to $10.each but wasn't really worth that so we skipped brunch. We had stayed here 4 years ago and had a good experience, but not this time.

Our overnight stay here was aweful! Property is run down, like 1980 never been improved run down. Linens in the room were old and discolored, sheets did not cover the whole very uncomfortable mattress. Spider webs everywhere, obviously they have a pest problem. The final reason I will never stay here again. I actually heard a staff member using profanity and yelling at some woman if she didn't like the place * I guess I wasn't the only unhappy customer* she should go stay elsewhere. I will take his advice and never stay here again. I wish I would have read past the first few reviews before booking. There is a pattern in both reviews and responses from property owner/staff? As in bad and excuses.

The motel (resort??) has worn carpets, dirty windows, and plain, no-frills rooms which one would expect if you were paying half the price (plastic and styro cups, plastic sheets under the sheets on the bed--really?) I specifically wanted to be able to walk across the street and swim in the lake--my main reason for booking at this motel. I asked if there was a beach right across the street, when booking by phone, and was told "yes." Which was not the case at all, it was a 15 minute drive to swim. The staff was courteous and they very kindly sent me a book that I left in my room, much appreciated.

We are not returning!!! The lighthouse got our money for 2 nights but never again. The smell in the room was awful from dampness. Bed comforters very old. ... carpet was gross. Basically the hotel needs renovated!!!! Paid way too much per night ($200) for nasty room. I don’t think owners care. Mattress was very saggy.... again very old and needs replaced. Will never return!!! Maybe owner will get the hint after seeing poor reviews.

Got there and the room was dirty with no sheets on the beds so asked for a new room. The next room was marginally cleaner... at least the beds were made. But floors not clean, bathroom floor with hair trimmings. Hard bottom of the barrel mattresses. No fitted sheets, but a flat sheet instead. Felt like staying in a camping lodge. Free breakfast on a Wednesday morning, consisting of fruit loops, frosted flakes, raisin bran, or an assortment of little debbie snacks. Small fruit platter as well. Location was nice on the water, but overall this was a letdown. I won't be overly harsh because it seems the entire area is struggling near Marblehead. While this is pretty rough, it's almost par for the course in the area.

Staff was courteous. Our room had a kitchenette that we didn't use. Basic room. King bed. Very firm mattress. Very old blanket. Hot out so AC ran almost all of the time. Room could have been cleaner. The pool was ok and it too could have been cleaner. No HBO or premium channels. We did not eat any meals there.

Stayed at Lighthouse last night 6/22 after the Amy Grant concert in Lakeside. At first the stay was not so great, but not the Resorts fault... Not too easy to find at night and my GPS was off and kept saying it was on the opposite side of the street. Be prepared to look hard. Room was average. We had a few issues about the breakfast cost and one other issue, and that was when I talked to Kim the owner/manager. I definitely think that Hotels.com has their info on breakfast incorrect, because breakfast is not free on the weekends. This is not their fault and I feel her pain. I appreciate her understanding and connection about helping me understand. I was not as nice because I was mis-informed. I appreciate the owner’s care and concern about caring what their customers think and about resolving the situation.

The agent that checked us in was very nice. Room was very large and clean but had a bit of a musty smell and was dated. They did not offer hair conditioner, just shampoo. Pillows were uncomfortable. Don't know if I would stay there again, but it was fine for one night. We were lucky they had a room available last minute since everything was booked that night.
