We booked the hotel from it's on-line promotion and proximity to where we wanted to go. Boy were we mislead! The hotel does not have a restraunt (not even anything close) the breakfast was nothing much either. The rooms were reasonably clean (I looked under the sheets and at the box mattress) We had a deck (which was covered in...

This hotel is a scam very dirty, poor management, misleading ads does not over look lake, very loud drunk people and management doesn't care. Worse ever. I couldn't believe this Manager didn't help and the food was not good.

We just returned from a 2 night stay. We had a king view room. The view of the lake was nice and we also faced the outdoor pools. On the whole our stay was nice, but the hotel charges way too much for its rates. We paid 249 for the room per night and for such a high rate you...

I was hear recently with my son (19 years old), two of his friends and their fathers on a father-son male bonding weekend. We spent very little time at the hotel itself, but used it as a base for going fishing, bicycling, etc. Don't be misled by "resort" in the name. It is hardly upscale in accommodations. But the rooms...

We stayed a week at South Beach Resort in the hotel--not the cottages. Pros: The staff could not be more helpful, accommodating or friendly. Every request was met with a smile. We got written directions, restaurant recommendations, and tips on activities. The resort was also very clean inside and out. They obviously take great pride in the look of the...

While it was nice to have a hot tub in the room, that is about the only positive thing you will find at the South Beach Resort. It is hardly worthy of being called a resort. We brought our entire family here and the price paid for our rooms- we would've rather stayed elsewhere. Do not consider the cottages- while...

I first learned about South Beach Resort Hotel through a groupon they were offering. We purchased a 2 night stay in the courtyard queen rooms. Upon arrival we were delighted to find out that we received a free room upgrade to a deluxe queen view room! The room was very clean, and had a great view of lake Erie. We...

My family, immediate and grandparents stayed 3 days at this resort. It was great! Service is excellence. The staff couldn't be friendlier. They have directions to all the attractions printed on cards so you can get around without trouble. Hotel is very clean--lend tennis rackets, board games, etc. Plenty of towels for pool. Breakfast is all starches. Not the best....
