Reviewed 9 August 2012

The Put-in-Bay Condos were fine for our stay of a few days on the island. They are a bit of a distance from downtown, as noted in other reviews. This has its pluses (quiet, spacious) and minuses (a trip in the car, golf cart, etc.) to get to anything. The condo we stayed in had nice furnishings and a great patio space as noted in another review but seemed "almost done." There were boxed headboards leaning against the sofa when we arrived (and one bedroom had no headboards). The queen beds had fitted full bedspreads, one bath's shower drain was an open pipe, one bathroom was missing some tile trim. Also, there was open food in the cupboards, the frig needed wiped out, the counters and microwave were cleaned with something that left streaks and we found a pair of boxers on a bed between the mattress pad and the bedspread (yuck!) and dirty socks under the bed. Seems like the crew turning over the condos for the next guests need to take their job a bit more seriously. Overall, I would recommend it for a nice stay at Put-in-Bay, but would like to see the owners take their guest services a bit more seriously - and add a sign for the condos as there is no sign or address listed and it is difficult to find.

Room Tip: It is easy to hear other guests through the public hallways. You may want to ask if they can honor a...

We have visited Put-in-Bay numerous times over the years and have stayed at just about every one of the big hotels downtown and a few of the house rentals around the island. The Put-in-Bay Condos used to be something else called South Shore years ago and was completely nasty. We took the chance and stayed at the new Condos since their website looked nice and it looked like they really renovated it.

What a treat! The new PIB Condos don't look anything like the old once used to be. The floors and counters are all tile/marble and all the furniture and kitchen stuff is all new. Don't really know where to start (or stop) when talking about this place. The beds were super comfy and not being downtown, we could actually sleep in in the morning without any loud DJs or partiers. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and everything and we brought a cooler of food and beer which barely filled the fullsize fridge. Recommendation and note to self... bring more beer and food next time!!

Outside, the landscaping is beautiful, the pool is clean, the view of the lake is incredible, and at night you can sit out on the patio and listen to the waves lapping along the shore, very serene. There are a couple big gas grills outside that we cooked steaks on. Was a little wary of "community" grills, but they were very clean. From talking with others, it looks like they may reopen the Skyway Bar next year possibly, which would be cool to have a place to walk to instead of having to get a taxi downtown and back, but the taxis were fun so not a huge deal.

Overall, this was a really neat place to stay and seemed like a cross between a hotel and rental house since it had a lot of hotel-like amenities, but we still had to bring our own linens. We would definitely stay here again!!!
