We stayed at the Island House Hotel recently during a trip to the Sandusky area. The hotel's website talks about the recent renovations and shows some very nice photos. Granted, the bathrooms had been subjected to a gut rehab, but the rooms had not. It has been my experience that when renovating an old hotel, owners try to expand the size of the rooms, i.e. take three rooms and redivide into two larger rooms, to accomodate the needs of today's travelers. Unfortunately, the Island House Hotel did not do this. Instead, they just put a king size bed in a 14 x 16' room clearly designed for no more than a double bed, leaving no room for much else, not even a chair. If you wanted to watch the wall hung flat screen TV, you had to sit on the bed. Not always the most comfortable arrangement, especially when your spouse wants to sleep and you want to watch TV. Also, air conditioning was provided by a slightly noisy window unit about four feet from the head of the person sleeping on that side of the bed.
