Folks, this is a motel. It's not a resort as in, for example, a J.W. Marriott or others. It is, however, beautifully landscaped, great location, super clean, friendly owners. There are free bikes to use, a hot tub and a pool overlooking the lake. An easy scenic walk to the downtown bars and restaurants, which, surprisingly for a tourist area, are good. The price is fine for what you get and for the fact that this is a summer vacation island with few places to stay that you can rent by the night or a short stay rather than an entire week. These people make their money in a short season and the cost is entirely reasonable. The restaurant directly across the street is a nice amenity. One of the things we loved the most is that this place is quiet. To those who complain about being asked to pipe down after 11pm, may we suggest Put-in-Bay. If you are looking to party hearty, this is not the place for you.
Another nice feature is directly across the street on the lake front there are lounge chairs, tables and grills for picnics and watching the sunset. We liked our stay very much and we will definitely return.
