Doesn't look like much but great little motel. Friendly staff. Very clean rooms. Rooms have no frills but the prices are amazing. Linens were surprisingly fresh and room smelled great. Would definitely come back.

Comfortable Rooms, Sensible Prices. The White Caps Motel is family owned and operated since 1975. We are a Guest Oriented motel catering to the outdoors enthusiast, Lake Erie boaters,and family groups. We More offer boat parking, dockage and Portage River access. We are close to "everything". 1 1/2 mile from Historic Downtown Port Clinton, the Jet Express to Put in Bay, dining, shopping and marinas. White Caps Motel is the perfect jumping off point for everything Lake Erie has to offer. Less
