The private beach was the best part for us. The room was like any normal hotel room nothing special. We changed rooms the second night because we could not access the Internet or wifi. The second room was great for wifi but the floor was sticky next to the air conditioning unit. The beds were comfortable. We did have a...

If you want a quick getaway from the city and don't expect anything, then this place is great for you. Below is a list of pros and cons regarding this "resort": Pros: - Quick trip from Cleveland or Cedar Point (the airport was less than an hour away) - Right off the lake - Right off of State Route 2...

The resort was clean but there bed are awful! Bath tub drain runs very very slow!! I should have believe all of the reviews! I could have stayed the Hoilday Express and had a free breakfast and it would have been a lot cheaper. The Hoilday Inn express was nicer. I would not go back !!!

This was once probably a real resort. Not that it isn't now, but it is OLD. They have modernized the place but not the core of the place. It is nice to have some authencity, but they should have done a complete overhaul. It was a weekend getaway with my spouse attending a siminar. The dining experience went fine for...

We made reservations for 4 rooms, paid $100.00 deposit on each room. We checked in and Sawmill raised the rate on three of the rooms by more than $50.00 a night. Sawmill refuses to stand by their reservation rate. We would have stayed elsewhere if we knew the rooms were going to cost more than the reservation rate . I...

First I'd like to say that I'm glad you were able to enjoy parts of the resort and it's extra activities. Secondly, I'm disappointed to hear that you weren't offered a menu on Sunday for breakfast. I will be forwarding this along to our Food and Beverage Director for the menu option to be available on Sundays, because you're right,...

This is an older resort. The rooms are not fancy (late 70's style) but clean. Lot's of options for families: pool, golf, nearby amusement park, nature trail. Restaurants and coffee shop reasonably priced. This is not a beachfront resort. You have to walk to the beach, drive and park nearby, or have them transport you there. The staff is courteous...

Thank you for your review and feedback. I'm shocked at the information, or lack of, that you received from the Front Desk staff. The payment for the boat cruise has always been taken care of at the Front Desk, never the boat captain. I will definitely be bringing this up to the Front Desk Manager to ensure that the desk...

Very nice location but that's about all. Very poor service except for exceptional service by the lady running the deli shop. We stayed for two nights and they gave someone our room while we were still in it. Wow! They let someone in our room with our stuff in it while we were away. I think they are under staffed...

I was very disappointed with our stay. The mattresses were so uncomfortable that I slept in 15-30 minute intervals for 2 nights. If there is ONE thing I would expected from a $250/night room it would have been a comfortable mattresses and pillows. And then, the front desk clerk acted like it wasn't a big deal. Terrible!
