“Pefect location and apporpriately priced”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

This beautiful old building is located right in the heart of downtown Port Clinton, across from the Jet Express (which was very convenient because not only could we walk from the hotel to the dock, but we didn't have to pay to park our car somewhere else). The staff was friendly and helpful as well. The room itself was very small, although judging by the fire escape chart I looked at it seems our room was one of the smallest in the building; nonetheless the room was nice and the bed comfy. A fridge, microwave, and all the little bathroom amenities were included. The wall plugs were hard to use, but that's minor. Everything was clean. The breakfast was nothing fancy, but it is included in the room price and there is plenty to eat. Overall, The Island House Hotel was a fine choice and I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: The rooms vary in size. If you are claustrophobic, make sure you don't get a tiny room. Personal...

We had a wonderful time. Our room was just fine for us,as we were wanting to just stay at this nostalgic hotel for awhile now, Its right downtown in center of Port Clinton,close to everything. Peggy the gen mgr is awesome! If you want fancy and modern, i suggest looking elsewhere. I felt at times that i was in the 1800's due to the long slender hallways that lead to the rooms, a feeling i was looking for. I didnt care that the rooms were small, i cared that it was clean. Everyone was friendly and would suggest staying here while visiting!

This room was loud and bright from the intersection it is on...street lights etc.blinds only, no curtains, didn't sleep at all. The room had a refrigerator without any complimentary drinks ( for that price I expect something complimentary). Only one plastic drinking cup in the bathroom. The vending machine was sold out of bottled water so, at 1:30 in the morning I go to the front desk to request a bottle of water.....no luck, they couldn't find a bottle of water in the whole place, they even checked the restaurant ! The light fixture didn't even have matching light bulbs, no class what so ever. Do not waste your money on this place.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

I booked the room for my birthday aug. 1st. The room was fantastic. The staff was nice and knowlegable about the town. It is close by to everything in port clinton. I really liked it. Rooms were clean, stocked and well taken care of. I felt the staff really cared about you.

The rooms are a little on the small side. However, the hotel is clean, quiet and historical. It also has a restaurant, 1812, and a bar, Rosie's, housed in the same building. If you are looking for a historic hotel with great amenities, look no further!

Just finished staying a few nights at the Island House Inn in Port Clinton. It is an historic hotel in the center of the downtown. The hotel is quite old, but well maintained. Mt room was very comfortable and quiet. I never heard another guest or the elevator which was right next to my room. The beds were very comfortable - as nice as one on the major chains that claims to have Heavenly Beds. Front desk clerks were very helpful with recommendations for dining and attractions. Free parking and a short walk to the Jet Express.

Room Tip: The double queen room is very comfortable.

I really felt like I walked back in time when I entered. Awesome room, clean linens, no bugs! staff is awesome. Ashleigh was a true professional got me checked in fast and was very personable! Staff on nites gave me a pack n play to use and I was truly grateful! I will be back..A+
Ps only suggestion would be a snap top trash can offered to guests traveling with small babies.
