We booked a two night stay at this hotel. After giving them $100 deposit and hanging up the phone, we realized our son had a soccer tournament on one of those days. I IMMEDIATELY called the reservation number back! All we wanted to do was to change the date or just get a refund of our depoit. They refused both and took our deposit! We spoke to the manager (Amber) many times during the week, after she told us she "would speak to the hotel owner", but she never spoke with him or returned our final call. She was rude and NOT very helpful at all. It was such a dissappointment to us and our four children.

Stayed one night only, thank goodness. It was a late booking and the only hotel available. A poky little hotel, small, dark, murky rooms. Our room overlooked an area which seemed to be a "dumping" area. Staff, when you could find someone, unhelpful and unfriendly. Very, very expensive for what it is. This is the first time I have felt strongly enough about a hotel to write a review, that says it all!

We stayed with friends at the Bay Lodging House and did not even know about the hotel. The rooms were remodeled and the hotel was very clean. The Buckeye Tiki Bar at the pool was fun and the whole place made you feel at home.

The wife and I booked a little get away for a couple of nights in July, and we were less then thrilled with the "lodging" but it was the only place that was available(and now we know why). The rooms smelled terrible, I think the room next to us was cooking perch or something like that. The room was small, and bare bones. A far cry from their description of" well-appointed'. The bathroom sink wasn't even in the bathroom. The pool bar never opened once. The staff was less then friendly. You would think at $150/nt weekday, you might get a "hello" or something like that. It was in a nice location a little off the main drag, but close enough to walk to the strip. We will not be back to this hotel, but we loved everything else about the island!

The room had a musty smell since the house keeping staff turned of the air cond during the 2 hour period between gues. The pool is NOT heated as advertised.
During our stay the bar closes early (before 10pm) and opened late. The speaker system at the pool didn't work well ... it kept skipping during songs. It would have been better to turn it off.
The bathroom is small, with the sink located in the bedroom portion.The staff was friendly, however moking is routinely permitted under the canopy just outside the front door. This is a violation of Ohio smoking laws. So hold your breath when entering the hotel.
High speed internet is wireless, but signal strenght is so weak that you can not get it from the rooms. You'll have to take you lap top to the front porch where the smokers are located to get internet.
The bar is of a Buckeye theme, which is very well done. But it is NOT a swim upbar, or any thing near such. Smoking is permitted at the bar.
Don't use putinbay.com. It is owned by several hotels and does NOT include all the hotels on the island. Look around
The hotels' slightly remote location isn't too much of a walk.
Bottom line is you get a motel 6 room for a Holiday Inn Express and Suites price.

What a great experience!! Our stay was from7-26-09 to 7-29-09.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Bay Lodge in Put in Bay. When we drove in, a gentleman met us when we were still in the car. He was wearing a Bay Lodge shirt. He said, Hi my name is Ken. Can I help you? And shook my hand. I thought he was the owner. He was not. He was an employee doing a great job. And this was in the parking lot. I told my wife this is a service oreanted hotel, and I was right.
When we arrived at the front desk there was a, warm, happy person that said, " welcome". With a smile got us to the room very quickly.
Then we entered the room to find a very clean room. By this time I can't believe, I was greeted by a nice person, then found the front desk person to be great and a clean room? Pinch me am I dreaming!
We can not say enough good things about the Bay Lodge. Great pool, good bar outside and most important, a great staff.

My sister and I visited Put in Bay and had an awesome time. We had a great time driving the golf cart and visiting all the island attractions. The food was great, especially Austin's walleye fish dinner and Pascouli's diner. Bay Lodging provided a nice room for the money and was very professional, taking care of any need we may have during our stay.
