I visited Put-in-Bay because my daughter and son both work on the island. This hotel was the perfect location for me. It was just far enough from the island establishments to get a good night's sleep yet easily within walking distance for some island fun! The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I felt safe returning to the hotel after...

We stayed here using the Jetaway Getaway package. The room exceeded our expectations. It was very clean. Every employee we had contact with was very friendly and helpful. My husband and I are seriously thinking about staying here next summer to celebrate our anniversary. A breakfast was included. It was very good. The only negative thing I can say is...

Honestly slightly surprised to see this currently as the highest rated hotel in Put in Bay, but imagine it's mostly due to lack of competition. This hotel did meet our needs as far as a place to crash after long evenings partying (as I assume is the case for most guests) but it's truly just satisfactory. We stayed in a...

The hotel is NOT a good place to stay if you have kids or elderly family member. We had two older men in our group which they stranded at a restaurant by taking the golf carts because the tippers manager didn't want to have the carts in the parking lot. They are expensive and not worth the money!! No one...

Friends and family stayed here this pass weekend and I have to say, for the money it's worth it nice place, nice rooms, and nice pool. Even when the May Flies were everywhere, the workers came around and strayed down everything with water.. A place I wouldn't mind staying at again..

The hotel is in the perfect spot on the island. It's not too far from downtown but far enough where a family can stay away from the late-night bar crowds. It's only about a 5 minute walk to the downtown area which was great for a little exercise during our stay. The staff was excellent. We mainly dealt with Jerome...

The bartender Chad for the outside made the experience unforgettable! He gave us good insight on the island and treated our entire group in a professional manner. I would recommend this hotel/bar to anyone coming for the night or weekend.
