My husband and I enjoyed our two days at the hotel very much. It was convient to the places we wanted to visit. We had good time at Rosie's Bar, and took in the jazz offered across the street. The jet express to Put in Bay was so close, we walked and left our car at hotel. Breakfast was very... More

Wonderful hotel that I would stay in again. It is a boutique hotel and an older hotel, so the rooms are small (charming) and do not have all the comforts of home, but I really didn't miss it. My room was clean and very quiet! The location was great--many places to eat and activities near by--Jet Express is a short... More

The hotel has a great staff, who are helpful and accommodating. The complementary breakfast is superb and delicious. We would definitely stay again on our next trip to Port Clinton. There are a good amount of restaurants and bars right around the hotel, as well as a great popcorn shop.

Found this place on accident while searching for cedar point hotels. Very old hotel, 125+ years, some of that age really shows, especially in the elevator and main hallways which have sort of a musty submarine smell. Once you enter the room then al of that changes, very clean, updated, modern, quiet, and comfortable room. This place is probably the... More

It was interesting to stay in a place with historical significance and the location in downtown Port Clinton was excellent, but the room was very small and I had to fix the toilet because it did not flush.

This is a very nice OLD hotel. The room was clean, comfortable. The bath was clean and updated.. very nice. Breakfast was ok/good.. clean room, table clothes, hot food. The only thing.. and I mean only... was our room was too far from the wifi and couldn't link up. Would I stay there again? Absolutely!

This is an old hotel, built in 1875. The facility has recently been renovated, but keeping the essence of its history. We stayed in a standard king bed room, on the small side, but expected in an older building. Friendly staff, nice lobby, complimentary breakfast nothing special, and a restaurant and bar attached. I prefer older and distinctive accommodations, and... More

I cannot compliment the staff of the Island House Hotel and 1812 restaurant enough. They helped make my daughters dream wedding perfect in every way. They were so helpful and accomidating with everything we needed or asked of them! The atmosphere and food was amazing! Our every need was met and then some. I would highly recommend this establishment. What... More

We carefully read all of the reviews before booking and chose this hotel, despite the high price, because we thought it would be worth it to experience the charm, quaint location, and historical venue. What a disappointment. This Hotel is not kept up in any way. The decor, both outside and inside is run down and sad. Our room seemed... More

We stayed here one night this past weekend as we were in town for a wedding. The room was very clean, although a touch on the "small" side for a king-size suite, but you have to keep in mind this is a historical property. It would have been nice to have drapes on the windows as the blinds did not... More
