Wonderful quaint hotel/inn in Port Clinton. Great value and amazingly comfortable bed after a visit to Put-in-Bay! Only needed more places serving breakfast in the downtown area. Great location right across the street from ferry.

We stayed there on July 15th. The room was small but clean. There were no chairs so that we could sit and watch TV. We asked the front desk clerk if we could have a folding chair (one) so it would be more comfortable. He said that he would check and let us know when we returned later that evening.... More

We stayed here on the weekend of July 12th for two nights. It has the best location since it has free parking behind it and it is a VERY short walk to the Jet Ski dock, making it easy to get to Put-in-Bay. The hotel oozes of quaintness and has a fine dining restaurant along with a pub where you... More

This historic hotel is very very clean. I can honestly say it was much nicer than the Hilton We stayed at the previous two nights. Very close to the Jet Express. Staff was friendly and accommodating. We didn't go to the restaurant but it too looked very nice.

We stayed at the The Island House for a group event. Knew there might be problems when the check in clerk explained how it might take 15-20 minutes for the hot water to make it to our room once it was turned on in the morning. Should have known that was a sign of bad things to come. Started when... More

We stayed in a queen size room which was small, but just what we needed. We would have liked to try restaurant and we will next time, but didn't have time this trip. The hotel is right across the street from the Jet Express which we took to Put in Bay. The fridge in the room was a plus and... More

We are checking out of the Island House after a two night stay. This is a beautiful historic hotel. This is the second time we've stayed. Both times we had the King Bed Suite corner room. The room is beautiful and has a nice view of the lake. Because we haven't stayed in other rooms, I can't rate them, but... More

Very nice rooms, Peggy and her excellent staff always remember us. There is free parking and Rosie's next door is the best for small snacks or full meals. We stay here and go out on fishing charters several times a year. Everything is within walking distance - we will def come and stay again and again.
