Very clean hotel with great amenities and unbeatable views

Helpful staff, clean environment. Nice view. Wasn't a bad experience .

Slow check in - pressure to buy upgrade. Expensive parking and limited food selections. Room was clean and quiet.

We love the balcony rooms. It would be nice to have a table with an umbrella for the balcony. The toilets are too low.

shower dirty, no room service for food no free breakfast had to pay for parking 12.00 a day with room at 199.00 a night their should have be more

Close to waterfront, very clean and new, good experience

Excellent, beautiful location! The grounds and hotel were fantastic!

Very nice hotel on the lake ! Everyone was very courteous and helpful

Had a great stay with the perfect location right in the lake. Good views and close to everything we needed. Will be back for sure.

Beautiful property right on Lake Erie. Great atmosphere and amenities. Only drawback is no room service.

Bayfront room was very nice and clean. TV has Netflix and other apps which is always good! Bathroom very modern with a huge shower. Bed is firm and comfortable. $12 a day parking in the garage isn't bad until you see the huge, free Convention Center lot right beside. Great workout center with large windows overlooking the bay.

I was looking for a place to relax before returning to work, & this was just the place. While we didn't eat at the on site restaurant, we did get a few necessary items from the bistro the following morning & I was glad we didn't have to leave to grab some herbal tea, fruit, & sparkling water. Their jacuzzi is a comfortable size for 4, not too hot, & had a great waterfront view as well. We'd definitely return & stay longer to soak up some more lakefront sunshine.

Reception staff were AWESOME!!! Stacey and her crew were quite accommodating and upgraded us to a waterfront view, along with drink vouchers. We were celebrating a very special birthday and our original plans were cancelled due to horrific weather. ALL of the staff; from reception, to housekeeping, maintenance, wait staff were always friendly and ready to offer assist in any way. Stacey gave us great ideas for restaurants, Presque Isle info along with guide books. This is truly a beautiful property. Outside areas are clean and welcoming. The infinity pool is lovely with the view of the sunset on the lake. Thank you for making our stay so lovely!!! Hope to come back again sometime!! Donnette and Diana

Very nice hotel. Staff was super friendly from check in to check out, everyone was smiling and as helpful as can be. Hotel was in a great location and rooms were excellent. Very clean, comfortable bed and pillows and great amenities. Fast and free wifi.

Stayed here before a half marathon and it was clean, comfy, and perfect for relaxing with friends. The infinity pool is awesome. Only downfall is not enough lounge chairs for everyone, you needed to wait and grab one after someone left. Besides that this was a fantastic hotel!

Good selection of breakfast food. Liked the parking lot. Staff was very helpful

Great location and great views. I enjoyed the Erie burger at the bar. Watch the sunset from the hot tub.
