Things You Want To Know About The Beachfront Resort
Parking is spacious and free. Park one time and play on the beach, eat and drink and have your own little party because you are on the only Port Clinton beach boasting 1000 feet of lakeshore fun, a WiFi service that is strong, and dependable and works from your room all over the beach, and dining within a few steps of your room!
A view from my room
Every room at the Beachfront Resort in Port Clinton has a lake view and a view of the beach.
The WiFi is dependable and strong and sticks with you even on the beach (tested, true and awesome)!
Outside of each room are 2 chairs for you to kick back on and watch the sunset, or to dry your towels after a day on the beach.
There are some chairs provided on the beach that you can use, to just hang out on the beach or bring your own!
A swimming pool is located right within steps of this property by crossing the street and heading to the Commodore Perry Inn & Suites. Take a break from the outside and jump on into the indoor pool. Simply stop at the front desk, share your room key with the front desk attendant for verification, receive a door pass, and if you need towels, they are available. It’s time to swim!
Room Amenities at The Beachfront Resort
Every room has a refrigerator (great for bottled water and snacks), as well as a television, a coffeemaker, and a microwave. Hairdryers are in every room, as well as makeup wipes, shampoo, conditioner, and soap, so pack light! The WiFi as previously mentioned rocks, even with a lot of people on it!
The rooms are clean, when I walked in I smelled bleach and the room sparkled and you all know I am crazy about clean, as I pull back sheets, carry disinfecting wipes, and check corners! We were very pleased.
Watch my video highlighting the room
There are plenty of outlets in the room for charging devices. Towels are clean and soft and this makes a difference after a day in the sun, and not scratching the ultra-sensitive sunburn!
Sunset pictures are so popular on SnapChat and IG, and I am all about capturing the moment.
You will not have to drive for a sunset, because of the deck area, with plenty of seating and the beach being right below your feet and a few steps out of your door, sunset pictures are easily crafted.
Location, Location, & Did I Say Location?
Perhaps the most important thing I can mention about the Beachfront Resort and Hotel is location, location, location! The Beachfront Resort has the prime location for shopping, walking, and proximity to the Jet Express.
My favorite transportation hands-down is Jet Express because it wastes no time getting you to and from Put-In-Bay for adventures and nightlife and to Kelley’s Island. The Jet Express is not even a 2-minute drive if you are checking out and parking at the Jet Express lot.
Conversely, if you are just going to get your party on or explore Put-In-Bay or Kelley’s Island for the day and then returning, the walk is about 5 minutes total which is perfect for all of you day-trippers! You are already parked and staying at a beachfront resort, so you don’t have to drive and if you party on (which trust me you will) you don’t have to drive, you just have to walk back to your hotel!
A Kroger’s (if you want to grab some goodies) is up the road about 3.5 miles once you pass beyond Water Works Park. There is an ice cream shop, a gas station, and a souvenir shop as well, so keep it slow through there and grab what you need.
The Food Network famous Great Lakes Popcorn resides within steps of the Jet Express and about a 10-minute walk from The Beachfront Resort. The town is being revitalized and under construction and I can not wait to see what new shops, bars, and restaurants pop up there!
Speaking of restaurants, did I mention that within steps of your room, right on the beach is Docks Beachhouse. Hello foodies, and I’d like to order another Endless Summer Drink. My kids went in during the and ordered a soda, it was refillable, how about that? You do need shirt and shoes to go in.
Food is easily ordered for takeout, dining on the beach, or to your room, and I will elaborate more on the eats in an upcoming article for all of you foodies. The important thing to know is that food is at your fingertips, and water, walking and having fun all create an appetite so you don’t have to go anywhere but right where you are for food and fun!
