    « Pretty good for an unpleasant trip »

    Had to make a trip up for a funeral. The hotel was convenient, the staff friendly, and some small bits of kindness made an unpleasant trip a little better. While I'd probably not stay during the season, For the two trips I've had to make off season (first to visit with a dying relative, and then for her funeral), it was a good value.

    « 3 beds for a family of 5... awesome! »

    We host exchange students and when our family grows from 4 to 5 because of this, we have a difficult time finding hotels that will give us enough bedding without someone being stuck on a sofa sleeper or roll-away bed. The 3 double beds in our room at the Best Western suited our needs for a quick trip to Cedar Point perfectly! The hotel staff was very friendly, the breakfast was fine, although an extra waffle iron to speed things along might have been nice, and the property was very clean and well-kept. A pleasant surprise!

    called ahead for a room. the clerk was very helpful. Our little dog stayed for free, I appreciate that. I am always sure to pickup my doggy do. This motel has doors in the front and back of the room, felt much safer.

    « Clean, pet friendly »

    Husband working at unclean power plant for a few months. Fur babies and I travel with him and stay in local hotels. This one exceeded my expectations. Arrived to find room was completely clean from top to bottom, including AC filter. Friendly staff, across the street from Lake Erie. Restaurants are walking distance.

    « Good place to stay »

    Came up to visit with family entering Hospice. The hotel happened to have the better price for what I needed, so it won my business. While not a brand new hotel, it was a very nice hotel. Only real issue I ran in to was the wifi, which for some reason really did not have strong signal in the room.

    A little more pricey than what was shown. Stayed on first floor,very accessible. Close to jet express. Decent breakfast,friendly staff,clean rooms. For the price,would probably try someplace new next time.

    Nice hotel, comfortable accommodations. Food ok -- need to rotate items and not have the same thing everyday. Handicap access on first floor. Convenient location. Found it quiet although it was on main road.

    « A Good place to Stay »

    We arrived on the day we said we would and were promptly checked in. The manager and staff were very attentive. The room was in good order. We would stay here again as we are planning a return trip next year and maybe stay longer.

    « PIB visit »

    Stayed for one night after day trip to PIB. About a 2 minute drive from Jet Express. Staff is very friendly and breakfast was good. Double beds had the sheet-wrapped blanket concept which I really like. Room was recently partially updated but found some shortcuts were taken in bathroom (still had original door, wall tile, and older shower insert which was a bit narrow). Towels are thin and could be upgraded. Room air had a slight stale odor. Overall, it served the purpose and we appreciated having a decent place to stay.

    « Quick Getaway to Kelleys Island »

    Booked this Best Western for a last-minute trip to Kelleys Island. 2 adults & 2 kids in double beds wasn't the best sleeping arrangement but it was fine for an overnight stay. Room was clean, staff was very friendly and helpful, free breakfast was pretty impressive as far as what was offered. A little pricey ($145) for small room with double beds is about the only complaint I have with this location. They really need to offer some rooms with queen-sized beds!! Although the double bed option is what seems to be the norm at most of the other chain & independent hotels in that area (I checked most of them). Overall not too bad for a last-minute trip to the area.

    Very nice hotel, friendly staff! Within 5 miles of the Put-In-Bay ferry. Only drawback was there was no elevator and we were on 2nd floor..hard for older people like my mom..I had to carry her luggage, but overall a nice place to stay!

    « Nice - but there was an odor in the room, and a problem with the cooling »

    It was good for a one night trip. The exterior and surrounding buildings left us with a kind of uneasy feeling. But inside it was nice. Small, but nice. No elevator, so that made it difficult for all our stuff. And then the room smelled like BO my husband said. I thought it had an odor, but not BO. I loved that it had 3 double beds!! :)

    « Awesome »

    My son and I stayed Saturday 8/13 and checked out Sunday 8/14. Our second floor room was great. The beds were pretty good, the pillows were perfect! The air conditioner rocked. It was in the 90's and it kept the room cold. We slept like a rock. The free breakfast was great, Bob Evans sausage gravy was piping hot, eggs and sausage. The gentleman that runs the breakfast does an outstanding job and keeping the breakfast stocked up and hot. Desk staff very friendly and helpful. Thank you to the young lady who checked us in Saturday night. She got us signed up with Best Western reward club, which saved us 10%. We really enjoyed staying, we will be back. As for the pictures posted. We didn't see anything of the sorts. The hotel was spotless in my opinion.

    « Weekend at the Lake »

    The people at this hotel were very inviting and aimed to help make our stay a great one. Very convenient place to stay. Nearby many great locations to visit. Think about a stay yourself. The only drawback was no elevator to second floor. Not a good thing for those who need that.

    « Girls Mini Vacation at Put-In-Way »

    The hotel and staff (especially Joey) was fabulous. The only concern I have was when making reservations. I was quoted a price online of about $129 per night for three nights (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) I almost clicked the button to pay immediately but decided to call instead using the 800 number that was clearly listed on the website, thinking it would better to speak to a real person. I was then told by the person on the phone, the cost per night would be actually be $139 for the first two nights and $289 for Friday night!! I thought this was bait and switch but I had already planned this trip with my two friends and really wanted to stay at a Best Western for safety reasons, I reserved only the first two nights and said I would make other plans for Friday. Upon arriving at the hotel, I questioned the staff about this issue. It was discovered I was led to a travel agent by using the 800 number listed on the Best Western Website. The staff advised in the future to call the hotel directly and as a reminder, they do not have a 800 number. My biggest question at this point is why Best Western would allow a Travel Agency to post their 800 number on the Best Western Website. I was really angry after the phone Thankfully the staff explained what happened so I don't blame Best Western for Bait and Switch. Hopefully your company will correct this matter.

    « Worst Hotel »

    Worst hotel we have stayed in on our vacation. The hall door would not shut properly had to slam it shut, the bathroom door would not shut at all, the air conditioner stopped running and the TV faded out to where it was barely visible, smoke came in the air conditioner as folks were smoking outside our room. The staff were friendly enough but the accommodations were terrible. Next time we are in the area, we will find other accommodations.

    « Great family hotel in Port Clinton »

    Great value for a comfortable and convenient place to stay when you're visiting Erie up at Port Clinton and/or the Marblehead Lighthouse (and the WWII aviation history museum). Stayed with family and got a room with 3 double beds! And the breakfast is a full breakfast with waffles, eggs, sausage, biscuits, oatmeal, toast and muffins, yogurt, fruit, juice, and coffee! And it's included in the price of the hotel stay! Hotel has a pool and is surrounded by places to eat and across the street from the lake (great beach park about less than a mile down the road). Very reasonable! Clean! Not luxurious but for those traveling with kids and family, a great find! I recommend it for families with kids. You are near the Safari Park and much more.

    « Good value, very clean room »

    Overall, the cleanliness of the room was above what we have seen at other hotels. Room was spacious and quiet. Outdoor pool was tiny. Staff was very helpful and caring. The dining area and hotel computer area felt like they were crammed into a space not originally made for those purposes, as they were high-traffic areas. Overall, for the price, it was a good value. An indoor heated pool would give this hotel a much needed activity for evening use.

    « Horrible! »

    Horrible stay. I paid $227 for a room full of bugs, used shampoo, next to a loud maintenance closet and woken up at 5am from pounding. If I'm paying that much money I expect them to at least sweep the dead bugs out of the the parking lot. The staff was nice. The breakfast was ok.

    over priced,needs updates,smelly rooms,many mayflies outside Hotel is not worth 150.00 on weekends,it's only a 65.00 room that smells,outdated,should be a nice hotel since it;s near the water but its not,would not recommend this hotel for any reason

    « Reasonable »

    I go up to Port Clinton every year for the National Matches held at Camp Perry, so I am very familiar with this place. They are not very friendly at the front desk, the Manager could use some customer service lessons, but the rooms are reasonable and some have been redone. I stay here out of necessity, weekend rates almost double, so I dont recommend staying over Friday and Saturday night, but all of the other motels do the same thing, put a little with it and get a better room down the street if the weekend is in your plans.

    « Close to Island Ferry »

    This hotel was clean and quiet. The bed was decent and it was close to everything we were planning on doing at Lake Erie. The coffee left a lot to be desired and the wash clothes and towels were very exfoliating. The staff was all very nice and helpful. We would stay again!!!

    « Nice place. Good location. Very Nice and helpful staff! »

    We stayed here for just one night. Price was fair, but could have been a little less. Place was very clean. Rooms were nice, However, if you stay in one of the rooms in the back, railroad can be heard. Overall, I'd recommend it!

    « Terrible guest service!!! »

    Had a King room booked to celebrate my wife's birthday. Needless to say how important that kind of room was. When ee arrived at the hotel to check in we were not greeted in a friendly manner and when we went up to our room we got a big surprise: 2 queen beds when I clearly booked a King room. What's wrong with the reservation I thought? When I went down to check, lady at the desk said: "we ran out of King and had to change you to another kind of room". You should NEVER do that! We walked away and went to look for another hotel.

    « Very nice and right on the shores of Lake Erie! »

    The staff here is so very friendly and it is a very nice and VERY clean hotel. When I initially booked it I was apprehensive because it looked dated and had an outdoor pool. Many places don't have outdoor pools anymore. However this was such a beautiful hotel it exceeded my expectations! Breakfast was great too! Highly recommended for this area.

    I stay at Best Western's every week. This one is my lowest rated, due the facility and room condition. It's been updated with decent beds and bath rooms. The negative was worn couch, poor internet connect, no fitness room, TV reception sucked, and cleanliness of the facility. Hope this helps you make your decision.

    « Rest of management team made up for terrible evening experience with evening manager »

    I want to start by saying we are Diamond members with Best Western. All this means is we earn some extra points, but also that we are allowed a free room upgrade, when they are available. So if we book a double bed room or a queen room and a king is available, we're allowed to get it. It may or may not work on Hot Tub rooms, but that's neither here nor there. So we made a reservation at midnight seeing there were a few hot tub rooms available, some double rooms, triple rooms, and a couple queen rooms. Since it's so late we know they aren't booked out because the website shows us what's available. In that case we book the cheapest room and then opt for the free room upgrade we earn from our Diamond status. We get there and there is a lovely young lady who just started working and was one of her first unattended shifts at night. So she had not a clue how to do the Diamond membership and called for help. Totally cool, I'm a former trainer for Pizza Hut and understand so we have no problem with this process at all. She's not able to figure it out and the night manager comes over. Apparently he lives close by or something. I thought it was nice he was so close to support the new team member. Unfortunately, the guy was not going to make our 2am check in go any smoother. His name was Brian. The associate's name that was there who was kind and awesome I unfortunately forgot to get. After talking to the girl for a while and sort of saying do this, do that, don't do this, I get told it's going to be 116 dollars. I said what? I am a diamond member. I paid 70 bucks for my room, and I just want a free upgrade from my status if it's available. He says that's the 'only king bed available" I say what about a queen? It's two am, we're a couple, if you have a queen or king that's all we want. He says there's nothing else (there is according to the site and his two bosses tell me the next morning) and it's just the hot tub room. I say forget it, just give me our original booking and that's fine. Keep in mind it's 2am, I get handed the paperwork to sign, I sign it, pass it back . The girl says what room are we giving them, he says 122. She says isn't that the..and she was waved off, told to not worry about it, and then we were given keys. Upon entering the room, it's the hot tub room. What? We start unloading our stuff thinking he just was being nice, and then I thought for a while and wasn't so sure. So I told my gf to wait and stop unpacking and walked down to the front desk. Im like, sooo, weren't we supposed to be in the double bed room like originally booked? He smiles and says, "Oh, you really wanted that? I asked, did you charge us? He said yes. I replied, well I told you we didn't want to pay extra and were only trying to use our status upgrade, then told you to give us our original booking, so yes I don't want to be charged for a more expensive room and I'd like to get what I told you I wanted. I then had the room swapped and was told "When you come back and return the keys, then we'll give you the keys to your new room". Now im a little annoyed because this is just overboard. I could have been asked to drop the keys off after we swap out. Holding it ransom like we're trying to screw him over because of HIS mistake was a little frustrating. I went back to the room, removed our stuff from fridge and freezer and put our stuff back in our luggage and brought him his key, telling him here's your precious key. He then gives us our new keys and we go to our room. The room is clean, no issues at all. It's all a little "damp" but best I can tell it's because we're on the coast so not an issue. Thats just the climate. The next morning we wake up and talk to the manager and assistant manager who listened and apologized. They were very understanding and assured us they would talk to him and would probably toss some extra rewards points out way. I was impressed with the concern and willingness to hear us out in the morning since the story she was told was we were only upset because we didn't get a free upgrade. " Not everyone just wants something for free, some of us just want to what we were offered, when available, and not a big deal at all if not. The attitude of the assistant and top manager were so much better than I experienced the night before and is the main reason we still rated a 4*. I do not advise anyone to deal with Brian. He's not a very good person to deal with.

    « Birding with Friends »

    I have stayed in this Best Western before, and I may stay again in the future. It was quite clean, and is in a great location. Good food is nearby, and it is convenient to stores and all the wonderful birding sites. The staff members are helpful and pleasant. It's been a few years since I have visited Ohio for bird migration, and now that the rest of the world has discovered it, all the hotel prices have gone up for the week. They used to give us discounts! The most recent reviews of this hotel show disagreement on the quality of the hotel's beds. There's a reason for that. I think the hotel is renovating its rooms, which is needed. Some of my friends stayed in a room with 3 double beds. These beds were newer, and very comfortable. The room I stayed in for a few nights had an older bed, which was not so comfortable. All the pillows should be replaced. Period. The breakfast leaves a lot to be desired. I'm not a big critic of a hotel's breakfast if it is fresh, and the supply is good. But, I have to say the biscuits and gravy were inedible. The biscuits were so stale they crumbled if we tried to slice them. The sausage gravy was equally bad. I hate to waste food, but I threw it away. My friends and I relied on the waffles from then on. A couple mornings they ran out of yogurt and fruit. If the hotel improves the beds, I will stay here again.

    We have not stayed at a Best Western for years. This was a very nice place to stay and they are pet friendly. The room was accessible from outside as well as through the hotel. That is very convenient when traveling with a pet-not having to go through the hotel lobby every time you take your pet outside. The room was very nice-clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice. The rate was very reasonable for a holiday.

    The hotel is a little run down but not terrible. The 2 start rating is low for this place. The staff was excellent. The rooms were OK, but they were clean. It was a standard hotel breakfast but that should be no surprise. We ate in other breakfast restaurants which we had planned to do. Location to the lake and local food and bars was good. Overall a good time, good place to stay and I would go back. If for nothing else the staff couldn't have been more helpful and enjoyable.

    « Best Western Won't Fix Expedia (HotelsOne) Screw Up »

    I made a reservation for 2 rooms back in November 2015. Didn't pay much attention to the receipt being from HotelsOne. We arrived on 2/27/16 and were given Room 111 which was very very small with a king sized bed. Our friends arrived and were given Room 101 which was the taj mahal compared to our room (table and chairs, couch, and lots of space with their king sized bed. Room 111 can only be accessed by the outside door whereas Room 101 could be accessed from either the hallway inside the hotel or the outside door. We are not much for outside doors anyway much less this tiny hotel room that cost just as much as the other very large room. I went to the front desk to inquire why our room was so small and our friends room was so nice and large. The front desk clerk told me they could not do anything because it was an Expedia reservation. Best Western at 1734 Perry St. in Port Clinton, Ohio gets the bad press on this one - not Expedia (sure they don't care.) I would never recommend this hotel to anyone because they were not willing to move us to another room or make this right in any way. Absolutely horrible customer service. I have also told Expedia that I will make sure I do not reserve a hotel from them or Hotelsone in the future. The bathroom floor was freezing cold too even with the heat on at 74 degrees in this tiny room. Was so glad to get out of there this morning. So much for being a Best Western Rewards member. Cutting that card up today.

    Being used to nicer hotels, I was hesitant to stay in a 2 star, but there was nothing about our stay I disliked. The room was clean & comfortable, breakfast plentiful, wifi, staff friendly, shower warm & good pressure, a good location, right across the street from Lake Erie, and a great price (off season). There was no conditioner or lotion, only shampoo, in the bathroom but I did not check with the front desk to see if they had any.

    We had forgotten to check out the breakfast. We also had dogs with us and requested a back first floor room for easy access. The room was very clean except for under the bed! They obviously forget to clean under there! There was a lot of misc stuff. Yuck. Many to point it out to them when we checked out but forgot. Great location.

    for the price, this place is great, and very clean and pet friendly. i have a dog, and they have rooms on the first floor with a rear entry to the outside which makes it convenient to let dogs out for restroom.

    « Terrific low rate for a good room »

    After an awful experience with the La Quinta Inn in Sandusky, we needed a place that was "pet friendly" and came up with this Best Western. Being the winter season it was virtually empty, but was great for what we needed. The room was good, clean and best of all, the rate offered ($60 for the night) was incredible. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would certainly consider staying there again if ever in this area and needing lodging.

    « Nice Homebase for a weekend around Port Clinton »

    Loved having a 1st floor room with a back entrance from the parking lot! This was super convenient for unloading and packing up. Also nice if you have to step outside for a smoke (because it is a non-smoking hotel). The front door opened on the hallway to the lobby which was nice for enjoying the free breakfast, which was basic but enjoyable. The ladies both mornings did a great job keeping things hot and fresh. The room was clean and nicely updated. Used the hotel as home base for a fun weekend around Port Clinton with my sweetie. Didn't travel with the kids this time, but I would feel fine bringing them here. It was a good value for the price. Will definitely stay here again.

    « our stay »

    we love coming to best western in port Clinton ohio. they are so friendly and rooms are always clean and fresh. breakfast bar is a very nice plus and always full and clean. we generally request a hot tube room and for the most part we get one as they have multiples. this property is located in downtown port Clinton and surrounded with restaurants and lounges, only 5 minutes from the finest winery and retail shopping.

    « Clean and non smoking »

    Ok for the price. Non smoking a plus but smokers go outside and smoke travels inside. breakfast just ok. Beds horrible, old and soft. Small outside pool, not heated. Ask for price before committing. just ok.

    « Hotel For The Budget Minded, Who Aren't Deep Sleepers »

    To be fair, Port Clinton is a resort town and shuts down after October. Our visit was during this time, not much going on. Several businesses and hotels were closed for the season. The Port Clinton BW is a hotel only for the budget minded and short stays. The property is in need of significant repair and updating. Doors creak, carpet/room furniture are old, rust on sink and hardware. Lighting was old and low, switches seemed arbitrary. Beds were average comfort, but small doubles. Not the hotel's fault, but train tracks are near, and about every 45 minutes a whistle would blow through the night, waking me up. If you need uninterrupted sleep, this may be an issue. On the positive side, the staff was excellent and friendly. Parking ample, location good. Breakfast was adequate. Heater / AC unit not too noisy, as is usually the case in older motels. This hotel is a good choice if you want low cost and just a bed to crash. Even so, only the price makes it average instead of poor. IMO, adequate for a night or two but anything longer and I'd consider alternatives.

    « Worth the price »

    The room was very clean. The staff was polite. The beds were small and uncomfortable. The bath tub had some cracks in it and could use some repair but overall the room was well worth the $60 we paid. I would stay there again.

    « Smelly Guest Room with hoards of Mayflies »

    Most expensive BW and worst BW stay ever! Heavy Smell of cigarette smoke inside room even though it was a non-smoking room. Several live Mayflies covered walls and furniture. Door lock was only half-way attached so unusable. Breakfast eating area consisted of small tables along the walls in the lobby.

    « Stayed here while fishing a BASS open on Lake Erie »

    I was actually here for three nights in two different rooms. The reason for this is I did not plan ahead. Sure this is a little older property but for the rate and the room I thought it to be an excellent choice. The check in went great and I just wish I would remember or right down the staff names. Anyways he was very good, very friendly and very helpful in getting me the third night in an otherwise booked weekend. He even offered to switch out my belongings from one room to the other. The hotel is right across the street from Lake Erie. Since I was there on business I really couldn't enjoy all the area had to offer. The room was great and spacious. Everything worked flawlessly as it should and I just wished I could have stayed another day. Let me note this. The night staff even made a large pot of coffee for me because I was leaving out very early for the tournament. There were breakfast items in the cooler of the breakfast area for me and my early departure. Who does this? I really think they went above and beyond for one person.

    « Off Season this place was really ok »

    There were very few people here during my 3 night stay in Sept. 2015, but the few i could hear. I was on the 2nd floor and had a view of the water, which is always a treat. room was large, with hd tv, but a bit small, probably 32". Has a re frig. & and microwave.Remodeled rooms but not sure the whole bathroom has been.

    « Great Value - Clean and kind! »

    We stayed in this hotel for about $60 and got a great value. Very clean room and lobby, kind staff, working amenities. It's not a 5 star resort, the wifi was slow, and the decor is a little outdated, but I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay while they explore all Port Clinton has to offer!

    « Overnight on vacation road trip »

    We stayed here for one night on our way home from an eastern state vacation. We choose this hotel as it just across the street from the lake, and we had a room with a lake view. the check-in clerk directed us to a good seafood restaurant withing walking distance. we would stay here again if in the area.

    « Good hotel Good location »

    The staff was excellent! Very helpful and good natured. The hotel was in a good location to water and sites within the Port Clinton Area and close to all kinds of restaurants. The pool was clean and well maintained. Interior and exterior doors to all rooms.
