Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DL324 Great location
Great hotel, very convenient to everything. We first stayed here several years ago, the hotel is as nice now as then. Only stayed one night, Sunday, as the Saturday night rates are ridiculously high. Seems that is the case for most of the hotels in the Port Clinton / Sandusky area.

my wife and I were spending our honeymoon at the Lake erie island area and specifically at the Holiday Inn Express and we loved it!!! The courtesy shown to us,along with the quality of the room(it was a handicap access room and it was perfect!!!) made our stay so enjoyable that on our anniversary we will be coming back for a visit!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RWRealm More than adequate
Family of 4 stayed in 2 dbl beds room. Beds were comfortable, room was clean (except for the trash that hadn't been changed from the previous guests), bathroom was a bit tight but it served its purpose, good water pressure, air conditioning worked well, located within 30 mins of Cedar Point, nice ammenities, the free breakfast was much better than others I have experienced at other hotels. Nice lobby and friendly staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GrandmaSue Newly decorated, accomodating staff
This is one of only 2-3 higher quality places to stay in Port Clinton. It has always been overpriced but warrants it due to demand, especially during the tourist season. We stay there every year for 2-3 nights at least once and sometimes more times. The front desk people are always very friendly and accomodating and remember us as being regulars. The rooms are usually clean as far as hotels go. We were disappointed this year that even though the extensive renovations had been completed in the lobbys and breakfast room our bathroom shower had quite a bit of mildew in the corners. Also, at 7:30 AM the breakfast buffet had only one container of yogurt in the case and the decaf coffee container was empty. We found the attendant in the lobby talking idly to the receptionist and requested service. We will return there but were just disappointed in the lack of "supervision" of the help?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Corrina Best Hotel in Port Clinton
We were staying at this hotel because we didn't feel like paying high rates at PIB and didn't want to stay the 2-3 night minimum that is required everywhere on the island. The price was awesome, so we weren't expecting much, but this hotel is EXCEPTIONALLY clean, well designed, and has the friendliest staff in Port Clinton (and we've stayed in PC many, many times).
It's a quick, cheap cab ride to/from the Jet Express and they let you "pre-check in" early in the morning before going to the islands. I love this place and we will definitely be return customers!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Impressed1 Very nice smell the moment you walk into the building.
Our stay was overnight, and very well worth it. I look forward to our return. My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. It was kind of muggy in the stairways, but the the fresh smell of the hotel overtook that. The hotel's aroma was consistent throughout. That alone made me very happy. Everything was clean. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a good stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smg7 Exceptional service
We stayed here for my 40th birthday celebration. The staff went out of their way to make me feel special. We stayed there 2 nights, and any time we passed the front desk, or even saw the cleaning staff in the hallway, they wished me a happy birthday. A note was even left on my bed when they went in to clean. They also allowed my friends to hang banners from the 2nd level balcony in the lobby and the front desk staff shouted happy birthday upon my arrival. I felt like I just entered a surprise birthday party! The friendly staff truly made the experience a wonderful one!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KCMO1 Maids did not clean my room
I had a do not disturb sign at 8:00 AM when I went to eat breakfast. After I returned from cafetria I removed the sign and left for the day. When I return at 10:00 PM the room was not made.
It stated that the hotel was close to Cedar Point Amusement part but, it was half hour drive.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Eonly Always my first choice.
Whenever I am staying in the Port Clinton area, the Holiday Inn Express is always my first choice. I was not disappointed this time, even though we stayed during the 4th of July. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mjk62 nice place
everything was clean, and comfortable. Staff was great. they should of had a little more food for breakfast, the weekend we were there, there seemed to be a lot of little kids, and that means not a lot of food! It was ok though. Next time we will time our trip when the May Flies are gone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KAD3991 Nice but beds just ok
I book Holiday Inn Express's because the have some of the best beds at this level of hotel. But at this locations the beds were below average for this hotel chain. Everything else was up to it's high quality I expect from HIE.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelerWithKid Good experence
I stayed in this hotel with my 7 y.o. in July 2013 for one night and it was a small vacation. We chose this hotel because of its location and hot breakfast buffet that always saves time when travel with kids and adds convenience. We loved our stay. The room was clean and comfortable. Bathroom is small that wasn't a problem for the two of us, but might be an issue if you have more people staying in the room. Good breakfast, served our needs just fine. We had no complaints and didn't need any staff interventions for any problems. I would recommend this hotel based on my experience.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sam2000 Nicely appointed but not entirely clean
This hotel was undergoing renovations when I stayed, but that was not a problem. The rooms was spacious and nice. However, the bathroom floor had the smell of a mop that was clean at the end of the hall, but by the time they got to the middle where I was, the same mop water was very dirty and disgusting. Being late, I put a towel on the floor and left it until I checked out. Otherwise, breakfast was excellent, and all other aspects were as expected.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GlennS77 Clean, comfortable and a little unexpected
Our room was very clean and the bedding and beds were very comfortable. The "unexpected" parts were that the lobby and breakfast area were very modern and the sitting areas were quite plush.....however, they also put us in a room that was being occupied ...bit unexpected there!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CoastieWolverine GREAT hotel for the area
Not up to par to Holiday Inns in say a mid-major city such as Ann Arbor or Toledo but definitely the best hotel in Port Clinton. The desk staff was sometimes unpleasant and seemed maybe overworked. Cleaning crew and breakfast crew were outstanding!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sarah149 Just ok.
My husband, son, and I stayed at this hotel over Memorial Weekend. Upon entering our room, it smelled of smoke. But it was late and our son needed to go to bed so we just dealt with it. We got settled and into bed and heard this awful noise coming from the A/C. It continued to do this every 30 min all night long!!! I was the only one that it woke up but it was super annoying. I told the front desk about it the next morning on our way out. We came back about 5 hours later to an uncleaned room and the same noise. We left for dinner a while later and I again notified the front desk of the issue but she said they don't have a maintenance person on staff and there wasn't anything they could do about it. Really?!?!?! So I had another sleepless night in a smelly room.
We have Priority Points so it didn't cost us anything to stay here, but if it had, I would have done more complaining. Still, issues like that should have been resolved.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tom0063 Everything was great except for one thing...
The bathroom fan in Rm 317 was incredibly noisy. Fortunately, it was controlled by its own switch. Even worse, after a couple minutes of operation, the noise increased even more. Perhaps a small thing to some, but very annoying none-the-less

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sparrow3 Poor value
Clean room. Painted brick walls in the room. Extremely small bathroom. Broken hook on door, chipped paint, dark. Ceiling in room all scratched up. Strange room smell, cleaning fluids? Good breakfast, but why are biscuits and gravy only on certain days?
Picked this hotel after staying at one in Vegas that was great. This was a big disappointment.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 1abfishing Not much sleep
We drive 7.5 hours to get a good nights sleep before heading out on the first car ferry in the morning to Put in bay.
We had three rooms in my group.
During the night of May 2nd,
the painting contractors broke a sprinkler head in the middle of the night causing all of the fire alarms to go off several times during the night. We were refunded $20.00 off our bills, but as you can imagine, we in fact did not get a good nights sleep as we expected.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Michael911 The hotel was under renovations...but was still nice
There were some major renovations at the hotel so there was a lot of noise and the smell of paint and wood dominated the entire building but overall the staff was very friendly and very nice. I am eager to see the renovations completed because I think that it will be nice. Would I stay there again? Yes! Woudl I recommend the location? Yes!
