The rooms were very clean and surprisingly nice! The front desk lady was very unfriendly and rude she was painting her nails and wouldn't even look up to talk to me. The shuttle guy, Deano, is super sensitive and talks too much about the same things over and over again. You'd have a more enjoyable ride if you pay the...

Nice large clean place to stay. Had kitchenette nice did not use much but nice having fridge, microwave, and coffee pot. The 3 bedroom 2 bath does have stairs. Staff was friendly and helpful. No coffee in room. Breakfast was average, bagels, muffins, hard boiled eggs, waffle, cold cereal. Nice if fruit, oatmeal and tea bags would have been available.

I was impressed by the cleanliness and size of the room. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, we did have an unfriendly bartender at the pool bar. Thankfully, his shift ended an a much more pleasant man served us for the remainder of our stay at the pool. This property is located away from downtown, but...

Planned to stay Thursday to Saturday but due to strong wind and waves all ferries to and from Put in Bay were cancelled and we were forced to stay one more night (very rare for cancelled ferries this time of year (late June). The hotel was very accommodating in letting us keep our room. The room was a little smaller...

We stayed in a double queen room. Don't expect anything fancy, but the room was clean and the hotel staff was very helpful. It is about a 15 minute walk from jet express dock, so if you have much packed take a shuttle. They offer golf cart packages, I'd also recommend doing that. Again the hotel was very acceptable and...

The Bay Lodge was okay. I can definitely say that the price we paid for our room did not meet my expectations. I was questioned by the front desk how many people I had in my room due to an air mattress. I thought this was completely unprofessional, I understand they have kids coming in having multiple people in their...

I called 2 days before the scheduled trip due to a medical emergency. No place can you explain why you are canceling. Instead they take a down payment which is close to 50% of what your bill is. We cannot determine when we will get sick. In situations like this they need to make an exception. I will never book...

Jacob the manager was very friendly and accommodating! It was our first time staying on the island. This was also our first experience using a golf cart and Jacob graciously filled us in on how to operate it. Our room was clean and comfortable. It had a refrigerator and TV. Hot tub was nice and warm. Neat having a pool...

We are, of course, always at PIB during the peak season enjoying the sun, drinks, and interesting people! We stay at Bay Lodging quite frequently. We love the location, bar, and it's easy to get around the island from there. What makes Bay Lodging really great is it is also open during the off season. We like to visit friends...

Every time I go, Put-in-Bay is a fun time. I have stayed there several times and never been disappointed. A couple of my friends stayed at Bay lodging resort and they recommended me to check it out. It turned out to be my favorite hotel at the bay I’ve been to! I have now gone there several times with friends...
