The Islander Inn is Put-in-Bay's first and largest Caribbean style resort. We have 115 rooms surrounding 4 swimming pools including a large heated pool, conversation pool with a waterfall, 30 person jacuzzi as well as our swim-up-bar pool. The Islander Inn also features the island's original swim-up bar, The Dizzy Lizard. The Dizzy has 9 seats in the water and and seats on land. This is the bar that changed how afternoons were spent on Put in Bay. At the back of our courtyard sits Crash Landings, a bar with an airplane crashed into the top of it. Both of these are open from mid May through mid September, weather permitting. Located between the Islander Inn and our sister hotel, the Grand Islander, sits Put-in-Bay's #1 afternoon hotspot Splash! Splash is the World's Largest Swim-up Bar. We have 97 bar seats in the water and 120 chaise lounge chairs outside of the pool for sunbathing. With live entertainment on the weekends and plenty of other fun during the week, Splash is definitely the place to cool off and have a cold drink with your best friends. Overlooking Splash is The Flaming Skull. The Skull is a full scale pirate ship that sits next to Splash. Guests can walk up on the deck and watch out over the pool while having a drink at the 80 seat bar. Get your picture taken with the captain so your friends will believe you when you say you were on a pirate ship on Put-in-Bay. We are located right in the heart of downtown Put-in-Bay and are within walking distance to most of the major attractions. Should you want to explore the island a little more, we do have golf carts available for rent at our Front Desk with some of the lowest rates on the island. You can rent a cart for a couple hours or go all day if you want.

I rated the Islander about 8 to 10 years ago as a Rat Hole and I wanted to give them another shot to see if improvements were made and nothing's changed. It's just as bad as my 1st review. I called 2 to 3 months...More

Not much to complain about. Staff was friendly. The rooms weren't top of the line, but they were definitely updated (paint, carpet, tile, furniture) and the shower had water pressure!! Pools could use some love, but they weren't bad. Stayed on a Sunday night so...More

Stayed here a few times. Rooms are clean. Pools could use a little sprucing up but all in all a very relaxing place to stay. Front desk workers were friendly, housekeeping always smiling. Bar tenders very attentive.

As far as I know, pretty much all of the hotels on the island require a 2-night stay minimum during the summer season. I don't know if the smaller inns/b&b's do, you may want to check on some of those.
