Reviewed October 20, 2013

We wanted to get away for a couple of days and the decision was made to go to Put-In-Bay. Well, nobody, not even AAA, told us the middle of October was not the time to go to Put-In-Bay. It was cold, windy, and rainy. Almost everything was closed. When you can rent a large golf cart for $20 a day, that should be your first clue. We wandered around for a couple of hours, finding only two stores open. We hopped the ferry, found our hotel in Port Clinton (Holiday Inn Express), got into our rooms and collapsed. Woke up a couple or hours later and felt "Oh so good". The room was clean, roomy, and comfortable. Went out to get a bite to eat and then back to our rooms at the Holiday Inn Express, enjoyed some fellowship and drinks, and then back to bed. Breakfast the next morning was very good and quite a variety of foods.

Room Tip: I believe the rates could have been a little lower considering the time of the year.

Hello Rschwein,

Sorry that you made a trip in the middle of October to go to Put N Bay. Yes, it does tend to get a little cold, windy, and rainy this time of the year here. We hope you will come back Memorial Day through Labor Day and experience Put N Bay on a warm summers eve. That is the time when the island is at its best. We are so impressed with your wonderful and kind words, it warms our hearts that we were able to be your port in a storm. We hope to welcome you back.

Best Regards,
Kim Bartish

One of the nicest places I have stayed. Easy access from Route 2. Close to many of the Lake Erie attractions including Cedar Point. The rooms are spacious and up to date. Everything is always exceptionally clean. Service and personnel are always very friendly and helpful. Breakfast bar is excellent with many choices. This Holiday Inn is by far my favorite place to stay.

Room Tip: Have never had a bad room in this hotel but the corner rooms are definitely my favorite.

Overall I was very pleased with the Holiday Inn Express. The location and service were perfect for our trip. My only complaint is a very small one in that the selection for breakfast could have been better (1 toaster for 100+ guests). I would highly recommend this hotel.

Pleasant setting and interesting lobby. Easy access from Rt2. Quiet. Bathroom small but functional and clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast good with Pancake machine that worked well. Many restaurants in area, but not in hotel.

We were looking for a clean place to stay while we were in town to go to Cedar Point.

We booked this hotel on Priceline and were VERY happy with our choice.
The check-in staff was very friendly, which is great because sometimes when you've booked on Priceline that's not the case.
The room was large, comfortable and very clean. Even included a mini fridge and microwave.
Breakfast was excellent, had good choices for everyone.
The pool was open late.
The area had a tonne of amenities..... grocery store open late, with alcohol for sale, McDonalds next door, AAA across the street for discount Cedar Point Tickets, Tofts Ice Cream store for amazing local, inexpensive ice cream..... and lots more.
We would Definitely stay again when coming here.

This hotel was very conveniently located off the highway, and easy to find. The lobby was clean and modern and staff was friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was hot and frequently refilled. Room was clean, with all necessary amenities. (The shower head rocked!)
Overall a great experience.

This hotel had the lobby and public areas renovated since I stayed here last year, this was a nice improvement. The rooms did not appear to be upgraded whatsoever. Rooms are ok, though noisy and leave something to be desired. Kids running up & down the hall were VERY loud (even over my AC & TV being on) and there was a disgusting smell in my bathroom but I couldn't tell where it was coming from. Breakfast was simply out of the box danishes, muffins & cereal -- nothing appetizing at all; at least there's a McDonalds across the parking lot. I would stay somewhere else when I'm in Port Clinton but three are no real options anywhere near this location. Good luck!

Hello Steve S,
Thank you for choosing us as your option of lodging while in Port Clinton, Ohio. I am so disappointed to hear that you did not fully enjoy your recent visit with us. I am so happy that you recognized all of the recent renovations and money we have poured into the facility from the inside to the outside. From the lobby, great room, hallways, and guest rooms is has been a great experience and has been well worth it. I am sorry that you did not get to enjoy our HOT cinnamon rolls, sausage gravy and biscuits, oatmeal, eggs, pancake or bacon. Our Express Start Express breakfast is a fabulous breakfast and we serve it our all of our guests from 6:30am until 9:30am. We hope on your next visit you can come and try out these delicious options. We are so sorry that we did not exceed yur expectations on this visit we hope you will come back and give us a chance to do so.
Respectfully,
Kim Bartish
