Very Happy

The staff were exceptionally friendly. We had never been to this area before and when we asked the front desk personnel what there was to do when we arrived, she was full of good suggestions, directions and very friendly. My husband even asked me if I thought everyone was really friendly there! The room was clean and comfortable and the location was close to everything we wanted to do. We would stay again.

Charged for smoking and do not even smoke

This hotel staff must strive to make extra money. My husband and I are non smokers hence the non smoking room. We have a charge for 200 hundred dollars so for one night our room was 445.00 bucks wow! I called to speak to someone about this charge and I was told it would be a couple of days before this can be handled. DO NOT STAY HERE. My husbands best friend and his wife are also non smokers and were on a trip down south this weekend and also got the same charge. This hotel is a rip off! Drive to Toledo stay at the comfort inn much cheaper and have nicer rooms and friendly staff it's well worth the drive.

Staff don't care

I know first hand the challenges of running a business where any one of a number of employees can turn an otherwise great customer experience into a bad one so I am always forgiving of the inevitable shortcomings that should be expected at value chain hotels. However, I cannot forgive what I believe is an attitude of indifference from management on down. We stayed two nights as this hotel with two burned out lights in the room, no bathroom counter space because it was broken off the wall and wi-fi only available in the lobby. The evening desk person tried to be helpful, but indicated that I should not expect the management to do anything. As if all this was not bad enough, on the morning of checkout, the groundskeepers through big clods of grass and dirt up on customer cars with complete indifference. When I brought this to the manager's attention, I barely go an acknowledgement let alone an apology. There are too many better choices in this area so stay away.

Celebrating our 58th Wedding Anniversary

We would recommend this hotel to anyone who visits the Port Clinton-Catawba area. The room was clean, the Air Condition was the quietest we have ever heard, the Continental Breakfast was very good. They had a grab bar in the shower/bathtub which was really nice since we are over 70. We spent a lot of time in that area camping with our children when they were small and we wanted to enjoy the area again. We were celebrating our 58th Wedding Anniversary this time.

It's Fine for a weekend trip

Everything was fine and staff was friendly. Conveniently located but not a scenic spot or walking distance to anything interesting. I would have guessed the hotel to be a couple of years old due to some cosmetic issues in our room but it was described as brand new?? Although 100% nonsmoking, one evening every exit had smokers hanging outside the doors. If smoking was permitted it would be nicer to have a designated area away from the doors. I was surprised for a "new" hotel they opt not to install an elevator.

Food was good and plentiful at Waldo Peppers which was located in the little strip mall down the road. After dinner we enjoyed ice cream at the Tofts Ice Cream parlor two doors down.

Great for a Bachelorette Party weekend!

We stayed at the Country Inn and Suits By Carlson in Port Clinton as the price was great and they offered a continental breakfast! We were 10 minutes from the Jet Express, which was great as we went to Put In Bay to celebrate our dear friends Bachelorette Party! :) We were 3 minutes away from the Mon Ami Winery! This hotel had everything that we needed and check out was not until noon, which was a perk as we were out late the night before! :)
