Small, out dated but clean. Hotel staff was nice...especially Billie!! Great location with a bar in the backyard..not a 5 star hotel but I would definitely stay again. There are rooms that do look out to the water, however our view was a parking lot.

I chose this hotel for its close walking distance from the Jet Express terminal, which was only a block away and we were able to leave our car parked for free at the hotel. What a comfortable room! Nothing fancy, but very clean and cozy. The bed was amazing, I slept very well. Behind the hotel is a deck to...

Checked into our room #236 on Saturday and was shocked by how dirty the bed, sheets and pillow cases were. Very yellow and looked like they haven't been washed for a while. Im pretty sure they used that bedding back in the 80's. Turned down one of the beds and there were dead knats on the bed. The smell was...

Driving from Michigan to home in central Ohio, we decided to take a detour and visit Put-in-Bay. We were 30 miles away and I used Trip Advisor to try and find an affordable hotel in the Port Clinton area. I found ABVI and saw they had a $76 rate. I then called them to verify availability. The lady told me...

Part of the hotel is every old ( I would say built in the 1950's ) So the section our room was in you can not control the heating and air conditioner . It went down to 60 degrees that night so our room was freezing. I went to the desk and they said they could not turn off the...

Great location for the night life of Port Clinton. A short walk to the Jet Express to Put-in-Bay. Rooms are well kept, clean and very friendly staff. We are planning another trip soon, will most defiantly stay here again. Many great restaurants within walking distance also.

Clean, very friendly staff, convenient to Jet Express, but décor dated. Second stay here and choose for convenience to Jet Express. Enjoyed Bike Night at bar behind and great place to spend the evening. Thrifty choice. But try to avoid being here when May flies hatch! Yuck, but staff works really hard to clean up the mess in the AM!!

This is a old hotel but the rooms are clean. Nothing exceptional but it is the closest hotel to the ferry and the price is right. The rooms need updated and do have parking right by your room ,this is a must for a busy holiday weekend.
