Our suite was modern and clean, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. All of the amenities were as described with breakfast being the best. We thought the location was excellent and would definitely stay again. The staff helped us greatly with locale attractions suggesting many to us along with recommendations for dinning out.

Great breakfast, eggs, bacon, pancakes lots of choices. Very nice shower with a clean spacious room. We were at the end of hall so quiet! Nice employees, they even sell beer on property in the evening. They even offered a free shuttle to the Jet Express that takes you to Put in Bay, you just tip the driver. Loved the indoor pool and hot tub. The property is very nice, lake view out back. I'd love to stay again, just hope they keep the prices affordable.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. I was there on business for three weeks and was working the night shift. The staff was excellent and put me in a location where there was little noise during the day so I could sleep. All of the staff was extremely courteous and very respectful of my needs. I would rate this hotel and its staff five out of five stars and highly recommend it to others looking for a quality place to stay.

This place was supposed to be on the water. Turned out to be a small marshy area, but that is only the beginning... The fountain in the front was putrid and the one in the back had shingles and stagnant water in it. The room was very dirty. Dust, mold and filth. The ceiling was peeling and falling and the chair was falling apart, and the security lock on the door was loose, just to name some of the issues.

We went for a weekend getaway to visit MBI and SBI, using PC as base. Hotel was clean, but our room could have been vacuumed more carefully. No signs of bugs, and I looked.

I'll start with the positive. The desk clerk did a fine job of rebooking us in another local hotel at a reasonable rate. She was both friendly and professional. The hotel was completely full and she did the best she could to make things right. When she couldn't make it right, she offered me points for the inconvenience without being asked to do so. Sadly, that's the most positive thing I can say about this property. Upon check in, we learned that we were on the first floor (not our preference ... Read more

While this is an older hotel, it really was pretty nice. They could update the lightbulbs with LED and not the CFL bulbs that they have this would lighten up the rooms quite a bit. The room was a pretty decent size, but I was surprised that they only had double beds, no queen size, but looking at the other hotels in the area this is all they had as well, so it must be industry standard in this area. The rooms had a microwave and refrigerator, so this was convenient. Now the bathroom is ... Read more

Room was as expected, standard Holiday Inn. Lots of folks at breakfast which was ok but nothing to get excited about. We were able to find a local restaurant that filled the bill. The staff was pleasant and we will return. Even though the hotel in next to a busy street, we heard no traffic noise in the night. There was a bit of trouble exiting the hotel onto the street due to traffic but the hotel is fine.

Convienent location, the complimentary shuttle to the jet express was a nice addition. The breakfast was good, nothing spectacular but good. We are still in our room as I write this (7/7/2016). Just got out of the pool after a long day at put in bay and was pleased that the water was not freezing, I`m guessing around 85+ deg. or smelling of chloromines.

I was very satisfied with the hotel location and cleanliness. I felt the price was a little inflated however was extremely pleased with the healthy breakfasts offered. My only recommendation would be to extend the hours for breakfast after 930am. After spending the entire day out and about it is hard to get up by 9am in order to get breakfast. Also parking (lack of)became an issue. We had to park in handicap since all available spaces were being occupied.

A Holiday Inn Express is not, and won't pretend to be a 5 star hotel. What last night showed is that it can deliver a night's stay that cannot be beat for the price and deserves a top rating. In the last 3 months I have stayed in about a dozen different accommodations, ranging from a tiny, but very expensive room in Paris, the ultimate London experience at the Savoy, varying B&Bs, and some real dumps.

After lots of surfing on the internet for the PIB area we settled on Holiday Inn Express in Port Clinton. We have stayed at many thru the years and value their reputation. As with any review I start with the positive. It is centrally located to many local area attractions, breakfast included & actually the cleaning staff was more helpful with info than the front desk. Unfortunately for $140 a nite for a king room you get a very small bathroom( 5' x 8') , a musty/ moldy smelling room & a bed that... Read more

The so called King Suite is not a suite it is a slightly larger room with a couch. Definitely not worth the extra money for a "suite." Common areas are alright. The breakfast was alright if you like instant eggs, greasy sausage, and bland gravy.

Beautiful, nicely maintained hotel, that has a very social setup. We were very impressed with the staff of your hotel. Upon check-in Sherry was very polite and informative. We unfortunately had a medical emergency (allergic reaction while dining at a local winery) and Sherry gave us directions to the hospital and offered to get an emergency vehicle, which we declined. We were disappointed that we couldn??t stay the evening as we had planned, but Kim was very understanding and graciously re... Read more

All of the lamp shades in our room had spider webs that extended clear to the ceiling. The bathroom ceiling light was broken and the light cover kept falling out. The dining room lights had mounds of visible bugs in them. The staff was externally helpful but it needs to be cleaner.

The price ($200 a night) for the quality of the room was very poor. Lots of water leaks throughout, windows filthy, what looked like mold in the room and rooms need to be cleaned better. The stain that was on the couch in the room was disgusting. I will definitely find another hotel to stay at next time.

My wife and I went away for your anniversary, we decided to go to Put In Bay for the day and this Holiday Inn was the closest, check-in in was a breeze and the front desk staff was awesome. As we were checking in I asked the clerk about parking for the Jet Express and she advised me that the hotel offers shuttle service to the jet. The room upgrade was an added bonus.Good breakfast selection that was well stocked and hot.

Clean rooms, friendly staff, good breakfast. We stayed here while we cycled the islands. Perfect location to use as a base camp. There are numerous restaurants nearby to choose from. We come to this area every few years and we'll use this hotel again.

Overall the hotel was nice. I usually stay at 4 star and above when traveling. We made a last minute decision to travel and this hotel was about the only one that had a vacancy. Staff was VERY nice. Especially the lady at the front desk day shift. She gave restaurant recommendations that were excellent. Room was exactly as expected except for an odd smell in it. Not sure if it was cleaning solvent or what. I would recommend this hotel.

Very clean, modern and comfortable. Exactly what I was looking for. Rooms were large and well decorated. Only negative would be the free breakfast, which was decent but not anything I'd choose to eat if other options were available. The outside patio overlooking the water was nice as well

The front desk staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Provided me with preferred restaurants in area that did not disappoint. Great breakfast area. The business centre was handy for travel planning and communications. Convenient to the Miller Ferry dock for Put-in-Bay and other needs; but the A-1 staff makes this hotel great.

Convenient location, easy to find and in a central location. Check in was fast and room was ready. Staying after Labor Day during the week, so great rate and not busy. We had a 2 double suite which had plenty of room, except the bathroom which seemed very small. Bath and body works shampoos. Good water pressure in the shower. Kids enjoyed the indoor pool. We drove down to Cawtaba park one evening and the kids enjoyed playing in the waves. Then drove over to Marblehead lighthouse. Next day... Read more

I was not very happy to find several head hairs on several of the pillows and sheets. While the second bed seemed to have fresh bedding, two pillows on it also had head hairs. The hotel was great other than that.

We were expecting more, considering the other reviews, and the HIX brand. When we arrived, the front desk woman was online 'finishing up' something with a reservation--- no one else was there waiting --but we waited about 4-5 minutes before she checked us in. Our room was just okay. The walls were a nice color but the ceiling had huge water spots, somewhat of an eye sore. The door security latch did not work because the one part had been bent to not close. We called the front desk and she sug... Read more

I've come to like these holiday inn express properties. At the port Clinton location I had a comfortable large room with a queen bed and couch. Good TV quality and a safe for valuables in the room. For a more quiet room I suggest selecting a room on the back of the property. My room over looked route 53 which can be a busy stretch of highway. They offer a nice breakfast for all guests.

Weekend getaway for three generations required two rooms. They were able to get us we needed next door to each other... a two bed room and a handicap accessible king, which was a little tight but understandably so. Breakfast was ample with lots of hot food and a good selection and staffers were really nice. Sound traveled a bit but you'd expect that in an older property that nonetheless had an up to date decor. Good experience and we will be back.

I was visiting Cedar Point and had a choice to stay in the HI located right outside the gate or the Port Clinton location. I was very happy with this location. One of the best HI I've stayed at with a very friendly staff, clean location and large breakfast area. To be honest, this hotel looked nicer on the outside than the one right outside the Cedar Point gates. It was worth the short drive and easy to get to.

This started the weekend trip to Cedar Point for my son and I. Our first night was to be at this IHG location. The staff was very friendly, the location was great as it wasn't far from our final destination, breakfast was yummy, and it was quiet. The only complaint that I had was the musty smell in the room, but it only bothered me at first and it seemed to go away.

This hotel did not quite measure up to the standards of most Holiday Inn Express. The bathroom had hair on the floor and the commode was in desparate need of a cleaning. All of the mirrors were dirty and the carpet could really use a good cleaning. I understand it is at the close of the season up there but I was quite disappointed.

This HIE is a great place to stay, it is near both the Miller Ferry and the Jet Express. There is convenient shopping nearby and great selection of restaurants from cheap to elegant. There's a great brewery/pub just down the street too. Friendly staff, quiet rooms too.
