“You don't get what you pay for...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

This place is so nasty.. Vomit, bugs, and condoms all outside the rooms. It's like a 'resort' for drunk college kids to party more. I like to party too... But I also like peace and quiet. The walls are paper and everyone screams and runs around outside the rooms. I found a half smoked joint under our bed. This place is so overpriced! Not worth it at all. A lot of the amenities are broken. The staff is rude as hell- except for the cleaning crew. I do recommend visiting splash pool bar though-not mist. I honestly can't wait to leave. This was a vacation....

We arrived on Saturday afternoon, and yes all the party kids were there, and the check in was a little casual, but our room was really nice (it was in the new building) a king jacuzzi room. Sunday and Monday were pretty quiet. I would definitely stay through the week, but weekends are a maybe!! Expensive, but everything is here. The staff was nice. Fridge and microwave in room. Not too bad overall.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new building. Jacuzzi rooms spacious.

This hotel is in downtown Put in Bay, and caters to the Party crowd. If you're used to 4 or 5 star accommodations, you may want to look elsewhere, but the rooms in this hotel are average though a bit small, and clean.
The location is right in the middle of downtown, which means you can walk to restaurants, bars, the docks, and other attractions. A golf cart rental place is next door.
The pool area was redone a couple of years ago, and is pretty nice- a waterfall, swim-up bar, private cabanas, and a main bar. There's usually a DJ during the day crankin' out the tunes.

We held a convention for around 100 people in September, and the hotel's management did a fantastic job making sure everything we asked for was in place! Ed & Jennifer were very accommodating, and I received compliments from many of our guests on how well things went. By the way, we are a group of people ranging from our 50s - 70s.

We reserved Mr Eds (bar/restaurant in the same bldg) for private breakfast Saturday & Sunday mornings, and the rooftop deck for a Saturday morning business meeting and Saturday night dinner, with cash bar & buffet.
Everything was arranged according to plan, and this with an OSU football game on in the bar during the day, which is a busy time for the staff!
We had a chef & a bartender on duty for us at the dinner. The food was very good for the value, I would say above average volume food.

About prices on the island in general- they are higher than you will find on the mainland, but remember, these businesses have a 5-month season. I take it with a grain of salt, knowing I'm in a fun location.

Spent the past weekend in Put-in-Bay for Octoberfest. The hotel was so overpriced-had a two night minimum. The room had not been dusted for sometime. The carpet in the hallway had cigerette burns. The decor was 70's. The sink to brush your teeth and wash you hands was in the entrance way of the room. No coffee maker- no conditioner- not a good place to stay unless you are totally drunk our of your mind so you don't see or care about the condition of the room. The remote didn't work- TV set looks like it was from 1995. Subway is in the lobby and it made the entire hotel stink.... stay away there are better places to stay- you will not enjoy this place- the hotel check in had two woman that were about as pleasant as having chicken pox....

My husband and I spent a weekend there. We booked a "double" room and had one double bed. Needless to say, it was like sleeping in a crib. Also, our room was on the first floor near the reception desk. Very Very noisy.. When people came back at night woke me up. And the room we had did not have a window in it, felt like I was staying in a basement. I would say, if you want to sleep good, get a room on another floor. And make sure you either have a room with 2 beds or one at least queen sized bed. I just cant get over NO WINDOW in the room, so dark..

Room Tip: Try to stay off the first floor.....

The location was great! BUT our room that had four beds had ants everywhere. They even came in and sprayed twice, but these suckers were tough! In the bathroom, on the nightstand, walls, and on the dresser. We try to stay at different places each time we come, and we will NOT stay here...If you like things crawling around your stuff, then you'll have a super time with them, but if not..pick a different place:))

I understand now that it is impossible to expect much more from a Put In Bay "resort" but I really expected a bit more from this destination. Not only do you get the very bare minimum (even out of season, apparently) you pay an astronmical amount to get nothing. I mean, seriously, how can you not have a coffee maker in the room? And I really don't want to know what fluid stains a lamp shade or how it got there. Regardless, we had a 3-bed "suite" which turned out to be a large large with three beds...guess I should have seen that coming. One bathroom for 6 adults (not college students) is also pushing it. Wouldn't have been so bad if there were clean and enjoyable places to go outside of the hotel. But, I can't blame my disappointment with Put In Bay on this hotel alone.
