Pro: The view of Lake Erie is beautiful. The back deck is good to sit and relax. It's a little old a rickety though. Con: There were so many spiders everywhere. The rooms were covered in wood paneling and they had a very strange odor. The beds were very uncomfortable. It felt as if you were getting stabbed in the...

This was a really awesome place. It was so quaint and affordable, we just loved it. The people were very friendly, the room was clean and SOOO close to the water. We sat out and watched a sunset exactly like in the photo on their website. The location was perfect....close to lots of restaurants. We walked to Big Eddy's for...

Don't stay here. Owners are nice but room had spiders in every corner. Thank you Giddeons for the spider killer. Owners please fog the rooms, do some maintenance and you can charge much more than $110 per night.

This place has seen its age. Its dark and run down. You may find a great price here but not worth it. There are other places near by to stay at. The rooms are small and dirty. It needs a whole new overhall done.

There is plenty to complain about with this motel, but it is GOTL. If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep that is on the beach and the strip, this could be your place. Debbie has checked us in the past few years and is friendly and easy going. She is willing to assist you with any questions...

Would NEVER RECOMMAND to anyone!!!!!! Not even the dog!!!! The rooms are out of date and I think they furnished it from a thirft store or Good Will. It had a very musty odor to it and the beds we're terrible to sleep on ,if you could sleep at all. The pool outside our cottage wasn't very clean either.

Rooms were dirty. We weren't able to open the windows.

Had to ask for towels, only to find the office person drinking with some bikers. I could go on and on...The room reminded...
