“Great stay at Holiday Inn Express”
Reviewed 15 May 2005

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for 2 nights during a recent trip to Put In Bay. The rates for our standard hotel room were significantly cheaper than most of the hotels on the Put In Bay island and the Holiday Inn Express is only about a 5 minute easy drive to the Jet Express ferry which takes you to Put In Bay. Our accomodations were spotless and the decor was very pleasant. The Holiday Inn Express offers a continental breakfast which is awesome and included more options than any other I have seen before. Everything was frequently replenished and available up to and even after the 9:30a cutoff time---you did not have to rush down at the crack of dawn. The seating area for the continental breakfast was beautiful and accomodated a lot of people. The indoor pool was quite large and the water was warm when we were there. We would highly recommend this hotel to others and found it to be a great alternative to staying directly on Put In Bay Island.

We stayed at this hotel in May of 2004. The employees were friendly at check-in. Our room was immaculate. Beaufitful furnishings and even had in room coffee pot and micro- wave. Not a big deal at most locations , but sort of a rarity in the Marblehead/ Port Clinton area and you will not find such conviences at the hotels on Put- in- Bay. The pool is large and the hot tub is nice. However during our entire stay the indoor heated pool was freezing. Staff said they called maintanence, but the problem was not solved for 2 days, when we gave up and checked out. With two young children and rain , its the only recreation available. All in all not bad , but our weekend was a disaster.

All the employees we encountered were very friendly and courteous. The hotel, overall, is very nice and much larger than your typical Holiday Inn Express hotel.

However, our room smelled of urine and the carpet was very questionable. The pool was in need of a MAJOR cleaning and the public areas were neat but not thoroughly cleaned. The hotel was very busy, so that could account for the public areas but there was no excuse for the pool. You could hardly see the bottom!

We were thankful that we were only staying for one night; on our route to another local "family/water park" hotel where we were staying for the remainder of our vacation.

Really nice hotel, wonderful lobby and large gathering room with a big screen tv. Room was clean, requested a view of the water and she said it was first come first serve but when we arrived she had already given us a water view room. What made the stay was the breakfast! Wow, not your usual bagels and cold cereal, it had everything, even hard boiled eggs if that was your fancy. We will definitely return.
