This is our first overnight stay in the island. Our ferry line brought our bags right to the hotel which was nice and they were brought to our room when we arrived later that afternoon. We stopped by the checkin desk and they took our name, phone number and called us when our room was ready. Once we opened our... More

We stayed in room #21. The location was literally steps away from Shepler's Ferry. The staff was welcoming and professional - held our bags and text us when the room was ready. The room was updated and clean, view was great. Loved Pontiac Lodge.

We stayed here one night while waiting for our room elsewhere! We were so impressed by the crisp and clean feel of our room! I LOVED the décor and my gosh for the money!?! We would absolutely stay here again! There was a large counter top area, fridge, microwave, nice size bathroom. Just a perfect room!

We got to the island before check in but the office held our luggage and than called us when our rooms were ready. The rooms were not only beautiful they were very comfortable and spacious. If we ever get back to the island will definitely stay there again.

Stayed in Room 20 directly above shop that blasted awful "head banging" noise. Staff addressed and it was turned down a little. Thankfully it wasn't playing all night or early morning. We visit the Island to hear horses hooves clomping by or just some peace and quiet. Room was otherwise nice with comfy beds and very clean. Toilet area and... More

So disappointed! Our room (24), is apparently directly above one of the souvenir stores that blasts thumping, bass-driven music from opening until close. So much for peace and quiet. Came back to room yesterday for a siesta and the constant booming "music" made that impossible. Room would be perfect if it weren't for this window-rattling noise that is disrupting an... More

It's pretty much the only place open in the winter to stay, but that's okay. We got on the island pretty early and they let us leave our bags while we hiked around in the snow. We were also catching a late boat and they were very accommodating. The only down side is the room was kind of noisy from... More

We stayed 2 nights and were pleased with the experience. I had read the reviews about noise so was a little nervous, but we had no issues. We stayed in room 29 which doesn't have a window but does have a skylight that lets in plenty of light. The furnishings aren't exotic or extravagant, but we don't spend a lot... More
