South Beach Resort Hotel
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Marblehead
Reviewed 16 April 2012

My wife and I have stayed here twice. The rooms are average in size and ours had a balcony overlooking Sandusky Bay. There are also a number of cottages located between the hotel and the bay area. Our room had a spa tub. The property is apparently privately owned and the staff is friendly. The interior of the hotel is clean and very functional. The property is not luxurious, but it is in a great location to explore Marblehead and close to the ferries which take you to the popular Lake Erie Island destinations. There appears to be deep water dockage and the property would be great for a family with all kinds of recreational and playground equipment available. You can get a "romance package which includes the bay view room, spa tub, wine, and dinner reservations at Mon Ami a nearby winery restaurant. It is quiet and relaxing, but we were there in the preseason.

Room Tip: Definitely go for the bay view.

I could not have imagined a more quaint, quiet resort. The room was impeccable. We were there for a weekend getaway and they offered a romantic weekend package for us including some gift items in the room.

The Staff went above and beyond to be courteous and welcoming.

They offered us a $50 credit for a wonderful local restaurant as a special that weekend (Mon Ami Restaurant) and that was one of the best meals we've ever had. Additionally they had free drinks in the evenings. We were snowed-in and the staff checked on us and made sure we had everything we needed.

We plan to stay there again in the summer and are looking forward to many more trips to Marblehead and South Beach Resort.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that can look out on to the lake.

I am not sure I have ever seen a bathroom so clean. I made sure to tell the cleaning staff I was amazed at how clean it was. Throughout the hotel, the hallways, the lobby everywhere was very clean and smelled refreshing. Chris, at the Front Desk, was very nice and helpful, always smiling. He helped us with things to do and suggested what restaurants to try. It was off-season and very nice and quiet.

Very clean and nice place to stay, although it is very quiet in the fall, it is getting cooler out. But the surrounding areas are very interesting to explore, the Light House, the ferry to go to small islands, the little shops and cozy restaurants around. A good weekend place to visit.

We rented 2 cottages for a family get together, a 3br and a 4 br unit. The cottages were very nice and clean. There were not any extras, but it was comfortable. We had 10 children and the play ground and kiddie pool were awesome. It kept the children busy all day. The pool water as cold, since they didn't turn on the heaters. The pools were clean and fun. The bay was dirty(north wind) and the beach area was very small and on a steep slope. If you use the pools and playground, this is a great vacation option.
