“Historical treasure with modern comfort”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

We stayed here during the off-season, over the Christmas holidays in 2011. This is a charming hotel, the staff is very friendly and accommodating, and unbeatable deal at this time of year. Ask for a view overlooking the harbor. Highly recommend!

We found the Hotel very clean with updated furniture in the bedrooms. The Lobby was quite inviting with the Holiday decorations. Staff members and Jeff went out of their way to be accommadating and welcoming. Loved the waffles for breakfast.

This Island House is a historic treasure of the Northern Shore, but it's not resting on its laurels. We enjoyed a wonderful stay over the holidays, in comfy rooms that were cozy warm, even as the wind whipped up a storm outside our many windows.

View of the lake, great staff, magical town, what more could one wish?

Room Tip: Get a corner room...lots of windows and great views.

The staff were very friendly and assisted us in surprising our kids Christmas morning. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. It made our long trip very memorable. We will definitely stay again! Loved it!

Was wonderful to stay so close to the New Year's Eve Walleye Drop event. Hotel was within walking distance of restaurants, bars & entertainment. The only negative I had was the room cost for the evening of New Year's Eve, which i believe was about 3 times their average per night stay.

This historic hotel has been renovated beautifully. The room sizes are typical of hotels 100 years ago (small and square), with high ceilings and tall windows. We were in a handicap room which could have used some towel bars and either a lower shelf (not sure how a handicap person could reach the shelf?!) or some counter space in the bathroom. The room was scrupulously clean with a mini fridge and coffee maker with ample supplies. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding gorgeous.

We cannot say enough good things about the staff. They went above and beyond in their efforts to offer us an unforgettable stay. Whatever we asked for was accommodated graciously and immediately. Excellent service. The breakfast buffet was a nice touch.

I would definitely recommend this Island House Hotel for anyone traveling in the Port Clinton, Ohio area. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Book ahead, hotel is charmingly small; confirm price when reserving because rooms may be marked up f...
