All staff were knowledgeable and kind during our 5-day stay, especially the front desk and the breakfast crew. The breakfast crew handled the early morning fishermen rush without a hitch even though this was a tournament week. There is ample parking here if you are bringing a trailer they have some dedicated space. Our room was immaculate and comfortable. We also enjoyed the workout room and the hot tub. Central location to everywhere we needed to go between Sandusky, Port Clinton, and Camp Perry.

Hotel's Favourite
My son and I spent the night there last night and everything was perfect. I did not do the early online check in but when we arrived and it took less than five minutes. The front desk gave us a recommendation for dinner (The Que Barbecue and Brew). Our room was spacious, clean and had a lovely view of the water. We sat outside after dinner on the patio. I could have sat there longer with my book had my son not wanted to go in to watch TV. Beds were super comfy and it was a great night sleep. Breakfast was delicous (Janet you were a treasure to chat with- please give Janet a raise) even my son ate (and he's picky)! Check out was fast. We will definitely be back in the future to explore more of the area. Thank you for an amazing mini vacation.

This was a wonderful 5 night stay. We were greeted by Carol who was very Efficient in checking us in. She was able to assist us with a list of restaurants. The room was Clean, Bed was comfortable bathroom was also clean. All the staff was very friendly and sociable. Location was very convenient also. Breakfast is the typical fair that most of these properties have. The young lady working the breakfast was on the ball refilling the food containers, And also walking thru the breakfast area and constantly cleaning tables. We are hoping to come back in July 2024

The rooms are nicely decorated and are larger than comparable hotels. Very clean, beds are comfortable, Kerig machines in the rooms to make coffee. Very nice breakfast with many hot and cold choices. I have stayed at this hotel many times and have never been disappointed. Staff is always available to make sure you have a pleasant stay.

We chose this HIE because it was in the path of totality for the April 8, 2024 eclipse, and it proved to be ideal for other reasons as well. I found every aspect of it to be first -rate. The staff were very welcoming, responsive, and efficient, and all the other things that matter most -- comfortable beds, good breakfasts, reliable elevator -- checked the right boxes. Worth visiting even without an eclipse.

Extremely nice staff and was very well accommodated. Breakfast is very good too. Place is clean and had little to no issues the entire stay. The fan in the bathroom wasn’t working so that would be my only qualm with the stay. Outside of that I would recommend this location to anyone.

I rented 3 rooms and all 3 of my bathroom tubs hadn’t been cleaned, our towels were stained brown and yellow, and the floors hadn’t been vacuumed…pure laziness! I know IHG requires uniforms so why weren’t the housekeeping staff in theirs?!!

As stated by others I can attest to that all the staff at this hotel are amazing. A special thanks to Anthony for always being so helpful and to Kim , she’s a true asset to this location. Being a diamond elite member I’m at IHG hotels literally all the time. And although the building Itself may be quite outdated the staff does there absolute best at keeping things together and clean But what keeps us coming back here is definitely not the building but Kim is amazing , I don’t know how she does it , she remembers the slightest of details even after not seeing us months at a time. I am truly impressed by the staff at this location. Thank you.

When I checked in staff was very friendly and welcoming but the person who came in for 3rd shift was unnecessarily crabby. Room was what you exoect for a location like this i guess. Ventilation in the bathroom sounded like a car engine it was do loud and didn't seem to actually work.
