Cons - Disgusting rooms, over priced, rude front desk staff, wifi sucked Pros - Good location, friendly bartenders and security, the grounds and pools appear to be clean. Coming from Chicago I thought the drinks were reasonably priced. The DJ/music could be put under both con and pro. I liked it but there was a lot of old school music.... More

For the price I expected more. The most noticeable thing was the musty odor in the rooms, turning up the air did not help. Nor did the air freshener that was left on the air conditioning unit. Someone is obviously aware of the problem. There is only a ceiling light in the bathroom which leaves the mirror poorly lit. The... More

Let's start with the pro's as there are very few... 1. Location: very close proximity to bars/entertainment/etc. 2. Pool & swim up bar are a good time and that's where it ends. Here are the cons: 1. Overall smell of the hotel...from the hallways to the room a smell lurks about of stale beer, urine, & mildew/mold 2. Lack of... More

I have traveled all over the world and to many countries, some of which could be considered a Third World Country. However, I have never in my life experienced such filth and unsanitary conditions, until I stayed at the Islander Inn, Put In Bay, Ohio. First room had mildew, then moved to the second room, which had urine soaked bed... More

BEWARE!!!! My friends and I stayed at The Islander Inn in August. Despite the rude customer service upon arrival and absolutely disgusting room conditions, which included a broken shower that flooded the bathroom and having to leave the room for over an hour to get fixed, we were not refunded our $200 deposit. After three attempts to find out why,... More

This should be considered a "motel" not a hotel, since motels have a negative connotation of being low value. Room was dingy, musty and had cob webs everywhere. Bathroom was dirty and towels/sheets had stains on them. The pool was NOT a happening time, little to nobody around their pool all weekend. Air conditioning unit cover kept falling off. One... More

We came here for a 5 night stay. We asked three times before we got our sheets changed! The phone didn't work in our room - they mentioned they would fix next day - never did. Jacuzzi had hair in it! Gross - the mattress had zero support - the bedding was flimsy and as one reviewer mentioned it had... More

I've been coming to Put in Bay for years and love it. Reading some of these reviews surprises me, I've NEVER had a problem with the staff and any issues I've had were taken care of quickly. I was in the lobby once when someone at the desk was getting SCREAMED at because of something stupid like towels. A lot... More
