My wife and I stayed, OFF-SEASON, two nights with a special rate for a wedding (held at the Marblehead Lighthouse Park) and the reception. The current owners seem to have improved the operation GREATLY from that of other reviews. The lake view was excellent. The accessibility king room with refer/microwave was utilitarian and clean; the grounds were trim and inviting....

The best thing about this hotel is location. It's right across the street from the lake and we enjoyed being able to eat breakfast outside overlooking the water. The hotel and rooms themselves though were pretty dated and not the cleanest. There was still trash in the wastebasket from the previous occupant and the bathroom wasn't cleaned as well as...

Our first view of the hotel included a large For Sale sign that made us leary from the get-go. The interior of the hotel is very dated with very dark hallways. The plus side is the outside is clean and grounds look well kept and in close proximity to the Marblehead Lighthouse. However, our main disappointments began with the toilet...

This was the perfect place for us to stay after a day on Kelley's Island. KI has ONLY one hotel which requires a 2 night min on weekends. Otherwise you have to stay at a B&B, which is not our style. The Lighthouse Resort is 1.1 miles from the ferry dock on Marblehead, making it a perfect location! There is...

This could be a fabulous little place but sadly it is not. Had encounters w 2 front desk clerks and both seemed like they would rather be somewhere else. When we first went into the room it smelled very old, stale and stuffy. At first glance bedspread looked old. Then my husband noticed none of the trash was emptied. We...

Spent a whole week there. We have stayed here for the last five years. Great accommodations, good food, pool, & awesome staff. Great place for family or business stays! Reasonable rates. Beautiful water views.

I went to a reception at the lighthouse center. When you first walk in the door you get hit with a terrible damp, musty smell. The staff that served us were great! The other funny thing was that you had to leave the center and walk to the hotel to use a bathroom. There was no bathroom in the center....

Yikes, where do I start! First the coming in; not a warm welcome but I need to have your license plate number and see your driver's license! We have traveled all over the States and other countries and never asked to see our driver's license! The place needs renovation from top to bottom: hall carpeting filthy, room beds uncomfortable and...

This is not a resort, rather an outdated motel. We had booked a three night stay because we were attending a wedding nearby. The hall was dark and not the best carpet. Upon arriving at our room, we first noticed the musty smell and the frayed edges on the curtains. The bed had an old comforter on it and an...

We came to the Lighthouse Resort for a wedding in Marblehead, Ohio, with the reception in Catawba. When we first checked in, we thought it was going to be nice, although we only picked up the keys and left for the wedding ceremony. When we got back, we headed up to the room. Things were fine. We had gotten a...

“The suites have lake front views. We stayed in the largest suite which had two rooms three bathrooms and a full kitchen.”

“It's gross. Just gross. And the power went out. And there were bugs and webs all over the outside of the hotel windows you got to look at when you climb the dirty stairs going to your room on the inside. Uncaring employees. Jacuzzi tub was nice. Probably because nobody stays long enough to use it.”
