The Island House was a great location to stay and take the Jet Express (across the street) to Put in Bay Island. The hotel was very clean, beds were very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: The suites are very nice in size and value.

We were delighted with our room and found it such a fun way to visit Put-in-Bay on Saturday night and Mon Ami Winery for Sunday Brunch. Room was up-to-date and the bed was super comfortable. Great overnight get-away! We will be back.

A great place to stay if going to the Bay and you don't want tied into the multi-night weekend requirement out there (it was a 3 night minimum the weekend we wanted!). The room was very large (we had a queen double) and amazingly modern considering the age of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The only thing that could have made this stay better would have been better access to breakfast in the morning. My friends tend to sleep later than I do, and there was nothing in easy walking distance or offered on-site for an early riser. I'll definitely stay here again.

ps. I do agree with the other comment on the need for better blinds. The wooden ones did nothing to keep out sunlight at 630A. If you can sleep in daylight, you're good to go. I cannot.

My husband and I just returned from a weekend stay at The Island House. Great location for catching the Jet Express to Put-in-Bay and just a scenic drive away from Marblehead and the Kelley's Island ferry. This historic building had a lot of charm. Other hotels we saw in the area were just your run-of-the-mill chains.
We had the second floor 'King Suite". Not really sure you should call this a "suite". Nice room with a King Bed, Micro-Mini Frig combo and very small bath. It was a pretty corner room with high ceiling and several windows. Unfortunately,the wooden binds did little keep out the street lights therefore the room was very light all night. Also VERY noisy from the street! It almost sounded as if a window was open.
My biggest complain was the housekeeping. Coffeemaker was not cleaned after the first day we used it, still had the leftover coffee and grounds in it after our room had been 'cleaned'. Same thing for the bathroom sink. Still traces of make-up etc left in it.
There was also a mix-up with our reservation. When we returned at mid-day our key didn't work. Went to the front desk and found out that the person who checked us in had mistakenly registered us for only one night. However, all our belongings were still in the room..they just re-keyed the lock. Thankfully, we returned in the middle of the day before they had time to 'give away' our room to a new guest.
All-in-all, I would probably recommend this hotel to the person who wants to experience something a little different and is willing to pay a little more for that. I'm glad we did it once. However, next time I would probably just do with the lower priced chains.

Clean and comfortable. They do not require a 2 night minimum stay like many of the hotels on South Bass Island. Conveniently located right across from the Jet Express. The room was all we needed and included a mini fridge. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Port Clinton.
