Clean, decorated room with nice bathroom, the history of the hotel and convience of the restraurant right there.
The bed was too soft for us but clean.
We loved the bed - so comfy. The room was hospital clean. Nice tall window looking out onto the main street and Lake Erie just beyond. Very nice Continental Breakfast. Lovely old building, not the cookie-cutter hotel. Plenty of hot water and no waiting.
There is really nothing we didn't like, but personally I would have liked to have a chair in the room.
Room was comphy and clean! I didn't worry about walking barefoot on the carpet or check for bugs! Totally comfortable and happy! Really close to Jet Express. I'm just sorry I didn't have more time to spend in the room! Queen sized bed with microwave and fridge! Defiantly stay there again!!
Small room but lovely
Musty smell, Band playing until 2:46am, Centipedes in the bathroom and the Continental Breakfast was poor. The bananas were so ripe that they were black and there wasn't meat, waffles or potatoes/eggs. Need to check out a Marriott Hotel.
nice place to hang out
the room was small and had no chair
Island House has done a fantastic job of preserving its history while providing modern conveniences. Courteous staff and a pleasant stay!
Spotty Wi-Fi in guest rooms, but that's nothing unusual in my experience.
Location excellent! Food in restaurant was very good! Customer service was good!
Bathroom lacked countertops, especially needed for curling irons and hairdryer. Awkward drying and curling my hair in bedroom. Bedroom on the small side, not much room for luggage.
Bed was good/firm. 1812 restaurant good! Room clean.
Room was small.
The beds were comfortable and the room was clean.
Lack of pool, workout room, etc. Also, the tub did not drain well.
Quaint, old place. Nice staff. Attached bar is nice and rowdy! Fun place to be!
Internet went on and off at five minute intervals. Room was TEENSY tiny. Place is kind freaky, too...haunted or something. Expected the twins from The Shining to pop up around a corner or something. Had to go the front desk to get ice, too.
Stayed as a first vacation with my boyfriend and it was perfect for a getaway for just the two of us
The only complaint could be how small the rooms are but it is a historical building turned into a hotel and everything is up to date
you can hear people in next room -small rooms
restaurant and bar in building with live entertainment. thee bed was very comfortable.
no hot water for bathing even after running the water for several minutes. the continental breakfast sucked and the coffee was very weak.
it was very clean
The staff was not very helpful. There was no chair in the room and when I asked if I could have one from the breakfast room, he said it would be a fire hazard. but when we checked out I was told that was wrong and I could have had a chair.
Friendly staff. Excellent dining in the bar. Great menu. Walk to ferry Jet Express. Close to fun bar The Bait Shop with live entertainment. Good entertainment in Island House bar also. Clean rooms with newly remodeled baths and comfortable beds. Was warned it may take as long as 10 minutes to get hot water but got it both days immediately. Was told quicker on 2nd floor.
Keep in mind, this is a very old historical hotel, so rooms are very small. Fortunately we had brought our own folding chairs so had places to sit. We knew in advance that it was an old place, so no problem.
I liked the recycling effort. I liked the restaurant and bar availability. The room was quite clean and the bathroom was roomy and neat.
The only complaint was that the morning breakfast was purely "Continental." But, if that's not an issue, this is a terrific place to stay.
most of the service was good, resturantgood
The rug in the elevator needed cleaning.Bad first impression. Lobby not very welcoming
Ambience, history, staff.
Hot water wasn't very hot in the evening.
The location was great right across the street from the jet easy walk to main land hotel since holiday weekend hotels on the island r very pricey and usually want you to rent for whole weekend.
Very small room for two bills a night although cost of room was up being the Fourth of July. Never the less small room.
Large bathroom well appointed rooms courteous staff
Could have been more choices at breakfast
Great location for the Jet Express
Bed very comfortable and wonderful after a full day at Put-in-Bay. Room and bathroom very clean.
Strange musty odor in closet
Charming room and ambiance. Very warm and homie feel to place. Couple of nice restarants and bars in walking distance. Right next to jet-express.
Breakfast leaves alot to be desired. Wi-fi has alot of lag to it.
noisy heater A/C unit
