“Great staff and comfortable stay”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

This is the second May in a row that we stayed in this hotel. This year we stayed for five nights. The hotel staff is great. When I checked in, the front desk was very helpful and patient enough to consider what might be the quietest available room in the hotel. We were surprised to find out that breakfast would be served much earlier than normal to accommodate the birders (us), the fishermen, and people who had to go to work early. Breakfast had many options. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and quiet.
It is an easy drive from the hotel to Magee Marsh, and there are several good options for dinner near the hotel.

Room Tip: The front desk was very helpful in assigning a quiet room.

This hotel isn't anything fancy, but it is a very clean and nice hotel. It has an indoor pool and hot tub and two separate areas outside to sit and relax. One is outside the pool and faces the parking lot, while the other faces the lake inlet/channel/whatever body of water that is.

My husband an I stayed 3 nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Port Clinton which was really located in Catawba. The Holiday Inn was the best hotel experience I ever paid for. The room was CLEAN and felt as if I was in a more expensive hotel.. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed our space in the king suite. The Lobby is very welcoming and super modern. The hotel staff were WONDERFUL and willing to do anything to make our stay nicer. The cleaning staff always cleaned our room everyday, clean the bathroom and supplied us with clean towels. The breakfast was good as well. I never used the pool or other amenities that were offered. I highly requirement this hotel and location if your going to the Lake Erie because it's right in the middle of funs things to do. We will definitely return next year during the Bird Festival.

Room Tip: The king suites on the front side of the hotel are larger.

This was the second stay for us here and the quality is still excellent. The staff is very friendly and helpful with suggestions. We had a suite with a king bed and some extra furniture including a small sofa, so we had plenty of room for the two of us. The breakfast is what we have come to expect from a Holiday Inn Express, and it suits our needs very well. The hotel is located near some good restaurants and handy to the main highway. We'll definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice clean hotel the room are well taken care of and it is clean. I only wish they had rooms with 2 queen beds when 4 are staying in a room and that the mattresses wee a little firmer. The pool area is nice and a good place to relax & unwind after a long day. The breakfast has good choices and if you are not full when leaving that is your fault. We have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed and will be back again in the future.
