Our stay at the Island Hotel was truly lovely! The experience with staff every step of the way was positive from the beginning when I made reservations all the way through to checkout. The live music was so enjoyable and no need to walk outside because Rosie's is attached to the hotel. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at 1812 and... More

The Island House is elegant, cozy, and comfortable. We loved the fireplace during our January stay there. The staff is excellent and makes you feel right at home. The restaurant has wonderful service and tasty meals so you don't have to leave the hotel to find an excellent meal. They are very accommodating and we will return!

We arrived late for an overnight stay just after the New Year. The front desk staff was very helpful and nice. It has a very nice historical charm to it. We were worried that the band music was going to be too loud, but we did not hear anything from the second floor and they did stopped playing at 11pm.... More

I took a friend there for his visit as he os not from the area.Food was deliciously fresh and visually appealing. Staff was efficient and friendly. Atmosphere was amazing, decorated beautifully for the holiday season. The best New Years Eve meal I have enjoyed. We look forward to many more visits!

I recently stayed at the Island House for the Christmas holiday while visiting family. It was beautifully decorated for the holidays and everyone who worked there was very friendly and accommodating! There are also two restaurants right downstairs. It is very close to the water and lots of activities and we will definitely be back this summer to enjoy some... More

This was our fourth or fifth year staying at the Island House just before Christmas. Port Clinton is my hometown. For a boy of modest circumstances, the Island House was an elegant place full of interesting people and the attached restaurant was too fancy to even imagine the food and drink served inside. It, perhaps, was never as exotic as... More

We liked the property. Nice view - you can see a little of the marina. A little noisy since you're on the street, but you expect that. Love the history. What didn't like was the COLD water. Our water never even got warm, stayed cold. We let is run quite some time and no temp change.We were in king corner... More

Our visit at the Island House Hotel was very nice. The front desk staff was friendly, the rooms and building was clean, bed was comfy, and we love the warm relaxing feel of an old charming place. The continental breakfast was minimal, although better than nothing. If the continental breakfast would have offered a little more, maybe even just real... More

Many of our Marina friends stayed in Port Clinton at the Island House the weekend of our yacht club party in the winter. The hotel was warm and inviting and decorated nicely for the season. The rooms were very comfortable and great amenities and the staff was very friendly. The Hotel is well situated in walking distance from other nice... More
