“Great place to stay.”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

It was fun to stay in a historic hotel. The location was perfect for where we needed to go - centrally located. And we were pleasantly surprised with the freshness/ cleanliness of the room. The staff was always pleasant and friendly. Our overall stay was a great experience and we would stay again if in area.

The hotel is situated in downtown Port Clinton within walking distance of several pubs and restaurants. The place has a cozy feeling that is hard to describe but makes you want to come back over and over again. Call Peggy today to arrange a visit to a special place.

Room Tip: While the standard rooms are small they are all well appointed with a special feel.

I want to say that my stay here of 4 days 3 nights was absolutely great! The girls were very friendly and had no problem at all putting a smile on your face with a hello or a laugh! Thanks to a good friend who recommended me the stay, i will be sure to go back again and have passed on the good word of the hotel staff and the restaurants there. The beds were Amazingly Comfortable with pillows that actually rested your head and not ones that you had to pile up just to make one good one! I cant say enough about the hotel staff working there and want to say thank you to Peggy! I'm sorry in advance that i don't remember the names of the other 2 girls working there but i remember their faces and sure hope i get the same smile when i come back next time soon!

Thank you Ladies it was a wonderful stay and a Great room to!!

My wife and I visited the Island House Hotel for our Valentines getaway. The hotel was very charming. Very clean! It is in the heart of Port Clinton. The staff was wonderful! There is a great continental breakfast that isn't advertised. We will definitely consider staying again. The Jet express dock is literally across the street, so this is the prime location for people interested in Put In Bay during the summer months!

Room Tip: They have a Queen Room that is very small, but newly remodeled. The price reflects the size of the r...

What a wonderful hotel to have had the pleasure of staying at while visiting Camp Perry for my daughter's NJROTC Precision Rifle Teams CMP National Competition. From the moment we arrived we were greeted warmly by the Concierge. The rooms were very clean, warm and cozy. Overall the hotel was impeccable, quiet and made you feel as if you were home! During our stay, Peggy (the GM), and her staff were outstanding. What a great group of individuals, all of whom were so friendly, helpful and made each of us feel so welcomed. I cannot say enough about this place. My husband and I have stayed at some of the top hotels in the country, and I have to say that this is by far one of the most nicest, friendliest places we have stayed! We would definitely stay here again, if we are ever back in the area, and highly recommend it! There were seven of us in our group, 3 adults and & 4 teens and everyone of us were so very impressed with the staff and the establishment. The food from Rosie's Bar was delicious, and the staff there were so helpful and friendly as well! We found this establishment online and were not disappointed at all!! Thank you Peggy and your staff for making us feel welcomed and for all you did for us throughout our stay!!

My husband an I were bowled over by this hotel. We came on an impromptu visit to Lake Erie (which the hotel is just a stones throw from) and for the Motel price we came prepared to be disappointed. What we weren't prepared for was the top notch cleanliness of the place, the boutique hotel feel and the incredibly courteous and engaging staff experience. Whilst walking through the lobby we were filled in by the staff of the previous famous occupants; Bogart, Marilyn Monroe, Al Capone and Joe DeMaggio, amongst others. We had such a fine time we decided to stay another night, but were unable to as the hotel was already fully booked up. we were the third couple looking to extend their stay and if that doesn't speak for the quality of this establishment then i don't know what does! If you are visiting Port Clinton this should be your first port of call for accommodation. Thank you Island House for an unforgettable experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in 2022 (i think!). Good sized Queen and a fantastically clean en suite. No view of the la...

We stayed at the Island House on a trip from Cleveland to Detroit in early January (2014). The hotel is very nice and the staff (actually just one person) was exceptionally friendly. The rooms were well appointed and warm (it was 8 degrees) and the hotel was quiet (although we may have been the only ones in the hotel that evening). The restaurant adjacent to the hotel had excellent food (first time I had eaten "walleye") and the adjacent bar kept up entertained into the evening. Not much happening in the town this time of year but would consider visiting again in the summer.
