I have stayed here twice before and it was ok. I like the view and walk out to the lake. The beds were horrible. They flipped the mattress but it didn't help.the rollaway(was supposed to be "newer") was so broken down we finally just put the mattress on the floor because the frame was poking my son's back! Dirty towels,... More

Stayed 1 night to get away. Quiet right on lake Erie. Nice jacuzzi for 2 people. Breakfast is continental so fruit granola bars and coffee and juice. Beds are tough to sleep in is why I only gave it 4 stars

We had an amazing experience. Was celebrating our Anniversary. Had a great view, room was so so on clean, but the Jacuzzi was wonderful. Staff was great, breakfast was quick and simple. I would recommend taking a picnic lunch with you and a cooler full of drinks. Not much to eat on Marblehead. We will definately be back.

This was out second time at this hotel. We found it to be very affordable, clean, and in a great location! Only a 10-15 minute drive to ferries to Kelly's island and put in bay. Love the jacuzzi suite. It's a bit dated but that only adds to the charm in my opinion. We arrived very late and going the... More

Pretty good stay... My ONLY real complaint is for the amount of the room you would expect a better breakfast selection. No meats or even eggs for that matter. I was never emailed my confirmation after my reservation was made over a month ago. I called 3 times and was assured it would be sent but nothing and yes I... More

My kids loved the place. Some of the pluses include the following. Loved the private beach. Perfect for sandcastles. I wouldn't recommend swimming too much as it is a soft mucky bottom and there are two beautiful pools on the property. The pools were great. One has a little kid area that is perfect for non-swimmers. They have plenty of... More

My 13 year-old son and I made a last-minute summer getaway to Marblehead and stayed at the South Beach Resort Hotel. It was very nice, perfect for us. Not terribly fancy, which was fine with us...but homey. Loved the pools, the small beach, and the balcony overlooking a great view of Lake Erie. Anything we wanted to do was a... More
