My husband and I spent two days midweek this last week at Kelley's Island Venture Resort and it was exactly what we hoped it would be. The resort is clean and beautiful and the staff couldn't be more efficient and nice. The front desk staff had to deal with a problematic guest as we were checking in, and they seemed... More

My family and I went to Kelley's Island Venture Resort during Island Fest This past weekend. This is the second year in a row we stayed here. The hotel is very clean, the pool/hot tub is very clean. Very clean rooms and friendly staff. we would recommend this hotel to families and singles any time.

Spent 4 days here in June with 12 family members from around the country ages 6-62. First unusual thing was the office closed at 6:00 pm and you needed to call someone for a check-in after that time. Considering check-in did not begin until 3:00 pm (no exceptions!) and the office closed at 6, this "window" was too narrow. We... More

We were looking for a vacation spot close to home (from Pittsburgh, PA) and this fit the spot. As a family of 7 we do not often find places that can accommodate us in one room so it was great to find a suite that worked for our family. We have five boys ages 6 to 18 and our suite... More

This is a very well cared for resort and they truly try to keep things quiet from 11 to 8 am, however, the guest suites have bedrooms oriented to the parking lot and sitting rooms to the pool. Therefore, when someone is leaving at 6 am you are awakened by the car starting. Unfortunately we had room 112, with the... More

I called to make a reservation and ultimately decided not to go through with it, because he made me feel like I was bothering him. First, he had an attitude! Second, his lackadaisical attitude made me feel like I was bothering him. I wasn't able to finish the reservation because he screwed up the dates. This was my first impression... More

I don't want this to come across as a negative review bc this is a nice place. However if you plan to travel with young kids there a few things I think you would want to know. We stayed in the Cunningham suite. It has three bedrooms. It's very nice and very clean. However the location is bizarre. It has... More

My friends and I have been gathering for an annual girl's weekend for 17 years. This was our furst year at Kelleys Island. I was so lucky to have given this resort a try. I ran past it in 2010 while it was under construction. I thought it might be too expensive. The price was perfect divided by six. Completely... More

We were prepared for an average, no-frills hotel experience, but got so much more here. The rooms are spacious, well laid-out, and have the feel of a small apartment with a front and back door leading to a lovely sitting area overlooking the pool. The hot tub was the biggest we've seen (one can actually swim in it) and the... More

We stayed at the KI Venture Resort when we ran the 1st annual KI Half Marathon. We have stayed on the island many times, but this was our first stay at the resort. The resort is beautiful, clean, spacious, and the scenery is very nice. Check in was very easy & the staff was friendly. Will for sure stay here... More
