nothing we didn't like. attractive decor
We loved the restaurant and bar attached. They had great food and good live music. The room was small but clean and great for the cost
Be forewarned -thin walls between rooms, so you can hear everything!
Decent breakfast options, great location in town.
tv remote wouldn't work and wifi ueless
facility very clean and attractive period place
The only thing I would change is to put the TV at the end of the bed instead of beside it.
Everything in one spot. Cute hotel, great restaurant, charming bar.
Was told there would be a hot breakfast but there was not.
The hotel has a very interesting history and charm.
For the money, it was a great value. Comfortable with old-time charm.
Dinning room and food was excellent.
Nice rooms in an older hotel had character. Loved the food and bar great location
The history of the hotel is really cool. The fire in the lobby was very welcoming. Would definitely stay here again!
Rooms were updated and clean. Hotel and restaurant were nicely decorated for the holidays. Dinner at the restaurant was very good. Historic hotel was well maintained.
It was a nice romantic get away from the winter blahs. We did not have to leave the hotel our whole stay there was a nice bar and also a restaurant that took care of our needs for the evening.
Going to put in bay for wedding. Had stayed at your hotel twenty years ago. Upgraded to a condo...what a surprise. Love the dining room atmosphere. Bonus...the OSU marching band (Some of them) were staying at your hotel too. Talked to some of the band members. You made them feel at home too!!!! We will be back.
small rooms, but that's because it's an old building
Excellent location and price. Clean, quaint, and near Sandusky and the island ferries
I booked the Island House Hotel for a last-minute 2-night weekend trip. Even though it was freezing cold outside, we still had lots of fun at Rosie's (eating dinner there both nights, plus watching the OSU football game there Saturday afternoon). The bartender and waitress were exceptionally nice and accomodating, as were the people at the front desk, who provided us with a razor and even threw my husband's damp jeans in the dryer for him! This would be a GREAT place to stay in warm weather, and we will certainly return!!!
The old musty elevator. marginal water pressure and the large bug that crawled across the ceiling until my partner killed it. Also the cold water cut out promptly ending an otherwise medium length shower.
Good location with a small but charming room and bathroom.
The rooms were a tad bit small if you are traveling more than solo. If you have a couple you may wish to ask for a suite.
Everything was awesome...I love the nostalgia of the hotel and that the only changes seem to be to give you human modern conveniences like a beautiful bathroom!
I only complaint we had was the room did not have a chair.
Beautiful town and the people were very friendly. The hotel was as beautiful as well,Rosie's bar and grill was a excellent place to eat. Did not eat at the 1812 but it looked really nice. Our room was small but the bathroom was large and had a place for our luggage. We want to go back again and would like to stay here. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well.The hotel was in the middle of town and made it nice to be able to walk to places.
The room was very small, but that is too be expected in an older hotel.
The bed was very comfortable. I slept amazingly well.
We are frequent travelers and this was a wonderful departure from the chain hotels we usually stay at. We can hardly wait until we can return.
1st room had ants but staff moved us immediately and even handled our luggage.
Cool old building, staff very friendly and accommodating.
Small rooms, but adequate. Bigger rooms are available.
Location was fantastic. Plenty of restaurants and bars in walking distance. Clean room. Comfortable bed.
That I had to go home
Loved the location of the hotel and the room was beautiful and clean. Nice Madison Ave Pub, Slaters across the street with great food. Short walk to the Jet Express. The staff was helpful and when I discovered I had left my E-tickets to Cedar point at home, I could use the guest laptop and printer to reprint them for free - lovely stay and lovely hotel!
MY FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF A TRIP BACK IN TIME WERE DASHED ONCE WE ENTERED THE ELEVATOR,THE WALLS OF THE LIFT WERE DIRTY AND SCRATCHED,THE TILE FLOOR WAS PERIOD INCORRECT AND WORN, THEN WE GOT TO OUR ROOM, WHERE DO I START, THE CHEAP SLAB DOORS, THE WINDOWS WITH ITS POOR VIEW DUE TO A LEAKING SEAL THAT NOBODY CARED ENOUGH TO REPAIR,THE MISSING PULL CORD ON THE WINDOW WHICH WOULD HAVE ALLOWED VIEWING. THE POPCORN CEILING WITH ITS RAISED SEAM GLOWING AT US AND THE DOLLAR GENERAL CEILING FAN, THE THE REFRIDGERATOR AND STACKED MICRO WAVE/COFFEE MAKER AT THE END OF THE BED. THE CHEAP MIRRORS SCREWED ONTO THE WALL BETWEEN THE WINDOWS, THE PEDESTAL SINK AND SMALL SHOWER WITH NO PRESSURE AND THE FACT THAT WE HAD TO USE THE BED TO GET DRESSED BECAUSE THERE WAS NO COUNTER SPACE IN BATHROOM,TO SAY I WAS DISAPPOINTED WAS A VAST UNDERSTATEMENT AS WE WERE LED TO BELIEVE FROM REVIEWS ON LINE THAT THIS MOTEL WAS GOING TO BE A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
AS WE DROVE UP TO MADISON ST. WE WERE BOTH IMPRESSED WITH THE CURB APPEAL OF THE CENTURY BLDG. THE LOBBY AND BAR/RESTAURANT AREA WERE IMPRESSIVE AT FIRST SIGHT.
No chair in the room.
Bed very comfortable.
