5/5 Excellent

We booked a last-minute vacation for two days mid week just before the Labor Day holiday weekend. We picked the location for its proximity to Put-in-bay and Kelly’s island, Port Clinton, and a quiet beach. It did not disappoint. The grounds are well-maintained, and include sand volleyball area, tennis courts, multiple swimming pools, shuffle board, a children’s pirate ship and other play areas. We stayed in a room at the inn which overlooks and is just a short walk from all of these activities, and, in my opinion, a perfect distance away for when it might be more crowded. The staff was very friendly and laid-back. The rooms were clean and well appointed, and we were advised of plans for new carpeting throughout the lobby and adjoining areas for next year. My husband and I were traveling alone, and were able to set up our camp chairs in the sandy beach at the bottom of the property. From there we could view Sandusky Bay, the occasional boat, and take a dip in the water when we felt like it. Did I mention how laid-back it was? There is also a boat landing and small marina there for folks who want to explore the bay, but while we were there was only utilized once or twice, so the vibe remained quiet and relaxed. Other families we met there brought some kayaks and rafts and really seemed to enjoy themselves. Overall, we are definitely happy to have found South Beach resort. It was a great “home base” for exploring the area as well as a fun stay all on its own.

Staff didn’t wear masks. Bathroom door would not close. Tried to charge an “Expedia” fee on top of resort fee. Never heard of that.

Fishing trip
The rooms are a little dated, but the location was great for fishing and enjoying the lake. The boat launching ramp is ridiculous here so you'll need to be an expert backing up your trailer. It's about 800 feet in reverse through the beach sand, kids playing etc.
