If u just need a room to sleep in this is great value. Right in middle of everything so u can walk everywhere. Restaurant and bar are very nice. All the employees very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are small but if you're in Port Clinton u want a room just to crash in anyhow

My husband and I just got back from a long weekend away for our 10 year anniversary. We stayed 3 nights at The Island House Hotel in Port Clinton. The hotel was great. We had dinner in the 1812 Restaurant the first night and the food was wonderful. My husband's steak was cooked perfectly. We also had drinks at Rosie's... More

I'll start off by saying I am a business traveler and stay in hotels 1 week out of a month. I normally stay at Hilton brands. I read all the reviews on this hotel, mostly about hot water, and was a little skeptical about staying here. I will say it was great. I had a king room which may be... More

Everything in this classic 1886 hotel was clean and newly refurbished. We paid an off-season, senior-citizens' rate of $79/night, and in our experience, any comparable room elsewhere would have cost quite a bit more. We were in northwest Ohio for birding in the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, which is about 20 miles west of Port Clinton, and we didn't notice... More

Classic Hotel-great suite for the price. Came for cousin weekend as meeting place between Chicago and Pittsburgh. Got the Suite and don't regret it! We were able to spread out-watch movies together-use the frig and coffee maker and enjoy the company. Staff is friendly and attentive. Enough to do in the area even though things are slowing down for winter!!

Perfect place for our lady time-out weekend ! We arrived Friday 10/10/14 the Island House is in the middle of small historic Port Clinton fishing town. The building was built around 1870, but has been updated and kept in clean working order. It is enchanting, the woodwork, fireplace, decor, all takes you back in time. Staff is friendly and informative,... More

The room was clean. Comfortable and cozy. Every one was very helpful and very friendly. The fishery is down the street, a store with different flavor popcorn and a restaurant where the breakfast was Awesome right down the street. And the drive through animal safari was fun. We will absolutely visit again. Love The Island House!

Having grown up in Port Clinton I was well aware of the Island House and it's historical presence in my hometown. But this was my first stay at this beautiful hotel. It didn't disappoint. My room was very clean and the bath was spotless. The room was not huge but adequate. Most of the space was occupied by the queen... More

I stayed overnight en-route from west to east at the end of a week-long drive across the country. This was the best hotel on our journey, full of charm and with a sense of history about it. The room we stayed in was great: clean, well appointed, and comfortable. It took a while for the hot water to heat up... More
