Best Western Port Clinton

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The bathroom had some "items" not really completed; gaps in tile between the sink and backsplash. Bed spreads were a bit "tired" looking. TV was analog, so all shows were not the best quality. Mattress was a big flat also. Wasn't impressed with the clerk at check in. Took him a while to even appear. When he checked us in (2 women), he proceeds to tell us, out loud, what our room # is...while about 8 to 10 men were in the lobby. Needless to say, they all repeated the room #! Felt very uncomfortable now that "they" knew what room we were in! Very unprofessional and very inappropriate and unsafe for female guests. I did let the clerk know in the morning what had happened. We should have asked to be moved to another room after the men cleared out from the lobby.

Was very satisfied with the room. Nice and clean. Tv was relit overly small but otherwise fine.

Ancient room with a nice view of the lake. Room was a nice size and well equipped. Friendly and helpful staff.

Was very nice, clean, spacious room for the price in a very good location. Only problem was that when our door key card did not function for our room on the first floor we were then forced to take a room on the second floor instead. Desk clerk, after kicking the non-opening door a few times, said it was a "maintenance issue" and was nothing SHE could or would do about it. Thought that kinda sucked, but aside from that all was positive.

This place is too far from i-80. Nice people but room is somewhat old.

We took a weekend trip to Put In Bay and decided to stay off the island. This hotel was a good deal and it had a pool. The pool wasn't very well maintained, it looked like no one had cleaned it out in awhile. The overall facility was clean and the continental breakfast was good. I think the bed in our room was broken, it was really uncomfortable on my side (sloping in one spot). I think the rooms could use some updating with new linens etc. but otherwise, it was a decent place to stay and they provided a free shuttle to and from the Jet Express, which was great!

The rooms were clean and comfortable if not plush.The staff was very friendly and helpful,for the price it was a good value.

We stayed here to go fishing in Erie in the am. The staff started breakfast for us an hour early so we could get on the water sooner. We needed to do laundry and they gave us free detergent. The place looks ok, needs new carpets and renovations. The pool is a joke, small and right out in front. No privacy.

They originally gave me a room on the second floor but when the clerk saw my limp when I went to the car to get my things I came back in and she had changed my room to the first floor and new keys. Great customer service!

We found the BWPC to be a very nice motel for our trip to Lake Erie. It is conveniently located between Port Clinton and the Island Ferries and other tourist sites. The rooms are large and clean and the breakfast while not full is a step above Continental.

The room we were given, on the 2nd floor, had a leaking roof (there was a bucket in the middle of the carpet). The room they switched us to (also on the 2nd floor) had a dead A/C (took them forever to verify that and agree to switch us again). After 35 minutes of being sent back and forth, with all our luggage, we finally ended up in a room on the first floor. Why couldn't they have given us that room to begin with? The hallway and room carpets are dusty and dirty. The breakfast was middling.

I was greeted by friendly staff. I asked for a downstairs room and was given one. I was able to check in two hours before the check in time. Though I only stayed one night, I was greeted every time I came in our out of the hotel. The place was clean and the breakfast was good. I would have liked a flavored creamer for my coffee. The coffee maker in the room was one cup at a time, which was OK for me but might take too long for a couple or family. Overall, I liked the place and would return.

Very nice motel, staff very friendly. I stayed in a room that had a back door to the parking lot which was very handy. Everything worked good. TV, Vizio flat screen, had a bit of static on the lower channels but nice picture still the same, even the remote worked. I booked another night but had to leave early, no problem with cancelling the reservation. Of my last few motel stays this was THE BEST! Carpet was even clean. Will diffently stay there again.

Everything was very nice. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing that could have been better was the Breakfast Bar. Not a big enough variety.

Staff at Best Western were very professional. The hotel was nice.

This hotel is clean, nice staff, definately affordable. A little out dated. Thw whirlpool takes forever to fill with water because the faucet is is the size for a small sink. Overall a good stay and would stay here again.

Excellent service, very helpful staff! Always willing to answer any questions!

My boyfriend and I were coming from Chicago to go to Cedar Point ; I wanted to stay some place fairly close but still with a good rating. With a 3 star rating from cutomer reviews I thought this would be the right place. It was not only dirty but also kind of creepy...my boyfriend and I barley slept as we listened to people come in and out of their rooms at all hours of the night. We woke up extra early and got the heck out of there!

This hotel was in a great location for us! We could walk to get something to eat, or walk down to the beach. It was clean and comfortable!

[...] The problem with this hotel, and because we were the last singal king bed room to arrive, we kinda got the shaft. We're unsure if it was because we arrived late or because we got the cheapest rate. Anyway, the rep at the front desk, told us the our room was an outside entrance room, (most of them were all inside) and we would have to wait for the housekeeper in the morning to open the laundry doors to let us in for breakfast, because there was no other entrance or we'd have to go around to the front. We also would have to do this for ice or anything else we needed. That kinda stinks but we blew it off. After we drove around back, we noticed the trailer park behind the hotel, blocked with a broken fence. The room was small, but it worked. The lights were all wired weird and there was a door in the back that didn't open. It also smelled like mold and a little smoke. Other than that, the room worked. It was near the major port to Put-in-bay and close to the restaurants. If its a one night stay and you're not big on breakfast, go for it. The inside rooms maybe nicer.
