First of all, the Island House Hotel is an old hotel so if you are expecting a very modern, sleek atmosphere this place is not for you…well, actually the town of Port Clinton is not for you. That being said, the hotel is charming..beds very, very comfortable..very quiet--spacious room--hotel staff A plus in accommodating guests… Marina is right across the... More

We arrived early, but our room was ready and we were able to check in. Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. She gave us several restaurant recommendations and area highlights. Room was clean and very quiet. Pork BBQ sandwich in Rosie's was tasty. GREAT LOCATION! On man street, plenty of restaurants within walking distance, block and a half... More

Labor Day weekend at the Island House - room was clean and pleasant though bathroom towel bar was falling off and door stop was on floor. Front desk staff was friendly and complimentary breakfast was basic but adequate. The 1812 Tavern dining room was the real star; great food and service, appropriately priced. Rosie's bar looked lively and fun.

Six of us stayed in 3 different rooms for one night over Labor Day weekend after spending the day at Put-in-Bay. The rooms were small, but comfortable. Everything was clean, the staff we encountered were all friendly. We arrived several hours before check in and our rooms were still being cleaned, but the front desk clerk was able to get... More

Very unique visit , a step back into time with all the modern day features . The service was outstanding, and the staff was great. The Hotel has all you need for an excellent stay . We will be making a return trip next year.

Very nice hotel on the bay in Port Clinton, conveniently located across the street from the Jet Express dock. Historic and rustic, don't expect modern luxuries, but allow yourself to appreciate the small town charm and history of the building (it was rebuilt in 1886 off of money collected from delinquent taxes!). So yeah, they warn you up front that... More

Fabulous hotel! Room was inviting, bed really comfortable,really clean.. Was not afraid to sit on the bedspread or walk barefoot! Has an elevator! Quick walk to the jet express to Put in bay. Nice service! Would stay again! For those who don't want to drive after the bay .. It's a must stay!

Just returned to UK having stayed at the Island House Hotel for 9 nights. Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Room and bathroom were clean and bed very comfortable - needed a good night's sleep as I was competing locally every day in a National / International sports competition nearby. Breakfast (included in room rate) available each day nice and early... More
