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

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

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. The room was simple, cozy and comfortable. The in house restaurant and bar provide good options and have friendly staff. The hotel has served Bogart, Bacall and a few presidents.

We stayed here along with another couple. It is a beautiful, quaint hotel and we will definately go back again. The staff was very friendly and the food was good also. We have never been to the area and it was a very historic hotel which we appreciated more than a chain hotel. The hotel is also centrally located and... More

Wonderful lodging that has personality and charm. Recalls the day when there actually was an innkeeper behind the front desk that offered intelligent human interaction - not a college kid playing "Call of Duty" behind the front desk at the typical chain hotel nowadays. This property is great. People are great. Come. Stay. Enjoy.

I booked a a medium size group of 22 people. Peggy was great to work with and made it very easy for the group to book our rooms. During our stay, the hotel and Peggy changed their normal breakfast to accommodate our group by adding some hot items and making sure we could breakfast earlier than normal.

The Island House offers a warmth and charm that you don't find in modern hotels today. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and all the employees are friendly and helpful. It is nice to have a bar AND an excellent restaurant in the hotel, and yet you are within walking distance of many other activities. I highly recommend this hotel... More

At check-in they said they DO have ghosts! Nice to have a bar connected to the lobby. Close to the Jet Express dock to Put-In-Bay. The hotel really made our trip memorable but lots of street noise at night, plus thin walls? Loud snoring from next door in the middle of the night. boo!
