I went to this hotel with some friends over a holiday weekend and I was surprised that the small town I'm from where we joke about rolling up the streets at night is a vibrant and trending place compared to here. To my surprise the hotel was clean as well as the room but not very guest friendly. Not many... More

This place is probably the only "resort" on the Island and probably the only one with a pool and hot tub. Which is why they charge the money. They told us both pools were heated when we made our reservations. However, neither of them were. Not even the hot tub if you can believe it! They didn't warn us when... More

My family (Mom, Dad, and two school-aged sons), stayed at the Venture Resort in early July 2015. We try to travel to Kelleys Island once a year and this was our second stay at the Venture Resort. Our two-story suite was roomy which included two bedrooms and a living area. The upstairs bedroom was spacious and included a window view... More

This was a getaway for my wife and I for our 20th anniversary. Hotel looks great as does the landscape. Room was clean but bugs all over. I killed about 10 of these weird worm looking bugs that were on the walls before we went to bed. Woke up in the morning to one of them in the bed and... More

We were trying to enjoy a weekend away with the girls and were treated like criminals instead of paying customers! This guy who calls himself a "security guard" was OVER THE TOP taking his job way too seriously. He followed us up to our room ( 6 grown women) and tried to search our room and threaten to kick us...

We stayed at the Venture Resort on Kelley's Island with friends and were pleased to find clean, spacious and modern accommodations. Our room had a King bed on one side of the room and a living room area with a sofa bed on the other. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub, although it was somewhat small and pretty full... More

Five star hotel prices, less than zero customer service. Was told at the time of booking transportation around the island would not be an issue. Once we arrived there was no transportation available anywhere. Spent 2 hrs walking with luggage in 90 degree weather. When I called the hotel and asked if they had shuttle service they told me no...

There is not a lot more I can add from my previous reviews of this resort hotel. It's very clean, family owned and operated, well manicured grounds from the pool to the lake side picnic area. They are up early every morning, cleaning, emptying ash trays from room front tables, knocking down all the spider webs from the night before.... More

This was my first visit to Kelley's Island although I grew up in central Ohio. I now live in Virginia and took a girls' trip back to Ohio. My daughter, two year granddaughter and I spent two nights here. The rooms were clean and spacious. The frig was great to have in the living/extra bedroom. There was also a microwave.... More
