I don’t stay in hotels much, but from my limited experience this was amongst the best I’ve seen Fortunately my boss told me to stay here for a business trip and I’m glad he did Spotless room, good employees, comfortable bed & pillows, great complimentary breakfast (omelettes, hash browns, sausage), safe parking lot, convenient location

I wouldn’t change a thing and will gladly return in the future Kudos to this team for running a great facilityBonus – I noticed there was a putting green outside next to the pool Bring a club if you’re into golf

This was the 2nd hotel on my trip to Cleveland that gave me the incorrect room that I ordered days in advance directly on the website When I went to my room to notice it was once again the wrong room, went back to the front desk The staff were tolerable at best

I felt like I was just thrown for a loop, and made to feel that it was my fault for receiving the wrong room… I had a confirmation and everything showing that I received the wrong suite After getting fed up with being told “it’s out of our control” and “we can ask another guest to switch” I just went to the room I was barely compensated for the mistake and won’t be staying here again Hilton hotels have gone down hill lately What happened to first come first serve, if I have booked a room and you give me the WRONG room, make it right I paid for it Careless mistakes And don’t appreciate the pressure into a “quick solution” which was barely worth the inconvenience

We stayed last Saturday night Staff friendly, but room and breakfast did not meet our expectations We’ve always been very happy with Hilton hotels

We are Diamond members Room was not vacuumed Crumbs everywhere We had a king bed with pull out couch for the kids This sofa had several stains and broken springs and when pulled out there was food and wrappers underneath No sheets and only one soiled pillow in the closet to accommodate the pull out couch-had to ask the desk for sheets Glad we had our own pillows to use Noted finger prints on the TVs Room was not wiped down, as I used a disinfectant wipe to clean the counters, remote and door handles and it showed dirt Breakfast was 6-9am Sunday morning Went down at 8:30 with the kids Lights in the breakfast area had been turned off Juice jars empty, sausage and potatoes gone and no cold cereal left Nothing Hotel was definitely full and busy but they should have had enough food to serve all until 9

We had a wonderful stay at the Settlers house at Riverdog Terry was a wonderful host meeting us late in the evening and providing all the little things that made the house our temporary home Think a pantry with ground coffee and condiments

A fresh baked loaf of bread with butter and jam in the fridge The house itself is lovely with great water and modern heating/cooling The space was great for us and I highly recommend the place if you need a quiet spot near Oberlin

Michelle Wessel

I literally have no words for this place How have I reached 48 years without knowing about it?The people are beyond amazing The art gallery (yes, an art gallery) is unbelievable

The atmosphere is like my country roots had a baby with my childhood fairytales lol The entertainment is bar none; AND DOGS!!!You can’t beat that This place is a must see I would buy a season pass were one available Such a unique experience We will definitely go back, probably with friends lol

Beth Diedrick

Great staff here Very clean Excellent rooms

Right Location for Ohio Turnpike Easy off Easy on Look forward to returning againUpdate: we are from Michigan I grew up here and the Midway Mall mentioned in several reviews used to be the big hang out as a kid Few malls are surviving This location would be ideal 30 years ago But it is still ideal for Turnpike travel which was our need today Great hotel


From Weird to Great Experience!Just passing through and needed a hotel for the night and we got lucky at this hotel The front desk lady was very accommodating made sure to try every discount I’m qualified for and found one Got us checked-on in no time

Hotel is clean overall and room was fantastic The room smell and looks clean and the bathroom was very clean as wellBut while going into our room we met a weird next door neighbor who insists in knowing my name and shaking my hand Not to offend him I complied and washed my hands right away Wife and I were weirded out a bit but we we’re tired so we took a nap I got out of the room to check on my car and this dude was behind me insisting on small talk about his wife cheating on him but I minimize my conversation and leftI reported it to the front desk and Marquis the new on duty from desk took it seriously and noted who the weird person was Then offered me room upgrade for my inconvenience and moved us in a different floor I was very impressed on this action by the hotel staff Wife and I had a great sleep and well rested for the rest of our trip the following day After a good free breakfast of courseI highly recommend this hotel to any travelers passing this area

Livin’ Life

We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel The room was clean, the breakfast was very enjoyable but most of all the service was exceptional! I wish I had gotten the name of the front desk employee that checked us in but in all of my travels she was the most accomodating, warm, and friendly hotel employee I have ever encountered We checked in on Wednesday, July 20 in the early afternoon if that helps to find out who this amazing employee is to commend her for an awesome job

We’ll be back again on our next trip to Ohio

I recently came to Ohio with my husband and 2 children to visit family Of all the hotels, Courtyard looked the absolute best and I’m very satisfied with selecting it for my stay! Upon entry, the lobby was in pristine condition and the decor was immaculate! They have a nice coffee bar in the main lobby as well and I thought that was very convenient The front desk staff were extremely kind and helpful to us, very accommodating! The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable; the bathroom was one of my favorite parts as everything was in great condition & working well! The water pressure was a plus! While here I frequented the gym a lot and it was the perfect size and had everything I needed! Moving onto the pool area, the pool was smaller but perfect for my family and I

The water was clear, clean and the absolute perfect temp! Very clean area as well! Another one of my favorite parts of the courtyard in Elyria was the outside patio! They have a nice setup of chairs and a beautiful fire pit! Perfect for a cozy summer night to relax! I just wanted to give a big thanks to the entire staff at this hotel! Your hard work shows all throughout the facility and we cannot thank you enough!

Do NOT recommend My husband and I were supposed to stay here recently, and we paid for the room ahead of time On the day of our stay we weren’t able to check in early but were told by staff that we would be able to later, at a time discussed

When we arrived later, the door was locked and we called the staff The person was extremely rude and told us the hotel was completely full and she could not help us We explained that we had already paid for the room and were told this check in time would be fine She didn’t even apologize and continued to be rude From my understanding, if the hotel was truly full, we should have been put up by Marriot in a nearby hotel

Margaret Harding

I have stayed here a number of times but was very disappointed this past time I asked 3 times while checking in for 3 night stay and realized after checking my account I was only checked in for 2 nights I called and they were able to schedule 3rd night

I was quoted a price for room on arrival I assumed this was for each night but second and third night were significantly more I again called front desk to clarify charges and they couldn’t help me I feel this was misrepresentation For what I was charged there should be some benefits like break fast or at least housekeeping or something Seems like we are using COVID to avoid providing services

Eileen Remlinger

Our room was clean and comfortable We were greeted warmly and with fresh baked cookies and hot coffee We loved the hot tub – it was perfect! The hotel is starting renovations

I really hope they keep that hot tub and not remove it Breakfast was good too and the cook/server was super friendly Walking distance to several restaurants Gas station at the nearby corner All in all a very nice place to stay

Pamela Miller

We stayed because of a death in the family Everyone was so nice to deal with and extremely friendly The breakfast was delicious and Anna in the dining room was very helpful, such a pleasure to talk to, and a tremendous blessing to us

There’s some renovations being made and we’re excited to see it when finished We will definitely stay here again when back in the area to visit family

Summary: you’re getting down-market quality at up-market prices You’re better off staying somewhere cheaper This hotel is in very poor condition

The whole front has been torn apart, they claim they are renovating but it looks like a tornado hit the place And while they say they are renovating the front, it’s the rooms that need the renovation My room has a huge melted burn mark on the rug The mattress is old and saggy and you can feel the springs through it The pillows are old and gross and worn out The linens are so-so for a nice hotelI stayed here because of the hot tub/pool, and that area was GROSS I used to clean hot tubs for a living so I know from experience: that hot tub is very rarely cleaned There was a thick layer of sludge around the water line There was dirty underwear and socks strewn about the pool area The whole pool area seemed unkept and grossThis seems like maybe it was a nice hotel when it was new, but now it’s basically a dump that you will pay fancy hotel prices for Like I paid almost 250 bucks for this place – you expect a comfy bed and nice linens and someone to pick up underwear off the floor in the pool!Gross hotel Do not recommend

Absolutely amazing experience! The new owner, Pat, was so personable and accommodating He made us feel so welcomed The rooms were spacious, decorated so beautifully, and impeccably clean! Beds were so very comfortable

One of the best sleeps I’ve had in a long time! Highly recommend this establishment I am so looking forward to staying here again

Nancy W

It’s always a pleasure to stay at Captain Bell’s B&B and our visit last week didn’t disappoint Over the years we have stayed in all the rooms inside the home and also in the separate cottage Each time the rooms and grounds have been clean, well furnished and maintained

Phil is a fantastic inn keeper who is on the property frequently doing maintenance and making sure all of the guests needs are being met We have stayed in a lot of B&B all over the country and Captain Bells is by far our favorite

Severus Koler

My parents stayed here for a night out on the town, though we only live 10 minutes away, and found that this gem was a perfect getaway spot They stayed in the Sunshine Suite and were amazed by not only the beauty of the architecture but the cleanliness and comfort provided here It was only a short walk down the street to get to the many shops and restaurants in town

I worked under the owner as an assistant, helping to clean rooms and I can say we clean everything Wood tables get polished, countertops & other surfaces get cleaned with Lysol wipes as well as door nobs Beds are stripped and completely washed and the floor are mopped and cleaned Bathrooms are fully scrubbed down and restocked with clean towels, soaps, toilet paper, etc After every client, the Captain Bell House makes sure every suite was as clean as it can possibly be, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic! The owner is also easy to talk to and is there to help make your stay better so talk to him if you need anything like more water, towels, or to get any folks staying in the Eagle’s Nest to be a bit more quite Lovely little gem that is definitely worth the stay And give the pup there some pets too, he’s a sweet boy

Quite possibly the loveliest and most enjoyable stay we’ve ever had on the road The house is historic and its story as a stop on the Underground Railroad is brought to life through great visual and actual storytelling that is compelling to say the least Joe and Susan are gracious, kind, fun and funny

The heart they have for the incredible Americans who found their way to freedom with the help of the good people of Oberlin all those years ago is the stuff of legend You’ll laugh a lot; feel completely at home and come away changed somehow by what you’ve experienced in this unique and remarkable B&B

Ezra Disbennett

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Hallauer House over the Valentine’s Day weekend and had a fantastic time The house as a whole was beautiful as well as had many accommodations to make our stay even more enjoyable We spent a couple hours in the game/activity room and purchased the Spa package that we enjoyed every moment of

Our room was clean and very welcoming for our weekend stay The house had many historic artifacts as well as Mr Woodward sharing many stories and information during our delicious breakfast made by Mrs Woodward The location of the house is just minutes away from the town of Oberlin which is great for a casual walk round town and visiting local shops Our stay was everything we could have asked for, and we will be recommending friends and family for future vacations!

M Milligan

This is a wonderful place! Comfortable, well-appointed rooms in a home on a lovely property The hosts have thought of everything when providing room amenities, down to a spare toothbrush and feminine supplies How cool is that?The grounds are charming and well-maintained, including a gazebo with comfortable chairs and a small stream and fountain

I’d have spend more time out there had the weather cooperatedBreakfasts are excellent! The hosts were able to accommodate my partner’s dietary limitations (gluten free), too

My family and I camped here a few weeks ago! Best camping trip so far! Very clean lots to keep the kids busy! The beach is by far the best part! We had the most amazing camping spot ever!!!!!! It was like a beach front view We will most definitely be returning this summer and for many more to come 😁 thanks American wilderness for an amazing weekend! See you again soon

NoVa ClapzZ

Me and my friends came here for the weekend and by far the best camp site I have been too around here Showers and the bathrooms are in way better shape than most campsites They also have a huge fishing lake that is stocked with a bunch of fish

The sites are amazing and the people here are great Too add on to this they have an amazing game room and the swimming lake is a good place to bring your family to I would recommend this camp site to anyone who is looking to have a good time


We were here last weekend and we had fun We loved the game room, the swimming pond and the catch and release pond where my daughter caught 8 fishes The bathrooms were clean

Shower had hot water We were able to enjoy a hay ride that took us around the campground The people who have RVs gave the kids candy which was nice The little playground had two slides The basketball court was good too My only complaint would be the closeness of the tent areas I wish we could have gotten closer to the water We were behind a tree Very close to the neighbors but the other neighbors were a little farther away But overall my kids and I made the most out of it and it was fun Reasonably price Minus the things in the store
