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

Remember, Put In Bay is for drinking. Not surprisingly, most things at PIB are treated poorly by a majority of guests. As for the room, Let's see: wet carpet (possibly from cleaning .... I hope), smell of mildew, mildew on shower curtain, bathroom floor and creeping into bathroom ceiling tiles. To add insult to injury, the wifi was not accessible.... More

Smelly hallways, loud around the clock and not comfortable beds for an astronomical price. Location was right in the heart of bars and restaurants and staff was friendly and helpful. If you look at it purely as a place to crash and bring bleach wipes, you'll be good.

One of the crappiest hotels on the island. Disgusting bathroom... Faucet was even plumbed backward (hot was cold and vice versa). When checking in they demanded $200 damage hold on CC. Not sure how anyone could damage our room. Beds not made by room service. No pool towels. Only thing good about this hotel is the location. Yuck!
