Park Hotel
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Put in Bay
Reviewed August 16, 2012

My wife and I decided at the last minute to come to this island and found all the other hotels were booked solid. Upon entering the lobby you jetted back in time before TV or telephones . The rooms are small intimate with plenty of natural light. It takes some time to get used to the communal facilities, otherwise for the price you can't beat. Staff courtesy and helpful. I would reccomend this place to my friends.

This was my second year staying at the park hotel. The price is what attracts us the most. We stayed Sunday to Tuesday for only 80.00 a night which gave us room to spend our monies on other things. The manager was extremely friendly and accomodating. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy. Another great put in bay stay!

The Park Hotel is not your typical place. They successfully strive to maintain the Victorian rooming house feel. You are renting a room and a bed, the rest is shared ammenities. I did not love the bathroom situation, but I didn't hate it either. The location and ambiance is pretty good. The price was fantastic. Fortunately when you call to make reservations, they help set your expectations pretty clearly. I'd definitely stay there again.

Great hotel for the price and location. This is a historic hotel so you should not be expecting modern amenities. The decor is quaint. My room had not been vacuumred before my arrival but it was the next day. Also the wallpaper was peeling in my room but other than that perfectly clean. Each floor shares a bathroom but the bathrooms were very clean and there was never anyone else in there when I was using it and the hotel was completely full. The location was absolutely perfect! A couple of blocks walk to anywhere you want to be! The staff was super nice and laid back. One girl at the front desk did not know how to work the credit card machine and said her manager was still asleep, but what are you going to expect on an island where the majority of the staff are college aged kids. I had to hold off on my purchase for a few hrs. All in all a good experience but not the most fabulous place I've ever stayed.

The Park Hotel is the oldest hotel on the island. I've stayed there many times over the years. The rooms are small, but nice and clean. The people are very friendly. You just rent a room here--there are no TVs, phones, wifi, etc. Know that going in. You also have to walk down the hallway to use the restroom and shower. It's not the big deal that people make it out to be. The bathroom and showers are very clean. The hotel is right next to Roundhouse Bar, an island fixture which has a band that plays until 1am every weekend night. If that's something that's going to bother you, you should probably not stay here! Downtown Put in Bay is a party place and Park Hotel is right in the middle of it all. If you are looking for something quieter on the island, you should look elsewhere. But if you are going for a great location, a clean room and an inexpensive place to stay on the island, Park Hotel is a great option.

The hotel has a lot of historical charm and character! It is a good place to stay if you want to be right in the heart of it all. It is attached to the Roundhouse Bar and the noise from the bar is a consideration when planning to stay here. The room was small but clean and each room has an air conditioner. All the rooms on each floor share one bathroom....which I prefer not to have to do....lol. We enjoyed sitting on the porch at times throughout the day and night to watch the people and the events taking place in the park across the street. So for a place to stay and for the price it is not a bad choice.

The Park is a historical hotel on Put in Bay that offers all the basic amenities you need when staying on the Island. The one unique thing is that it has shared bathrooms, but for the price compared to other hotels it's a great deal and great location!
