There were stains on the carpet and bathtub. Holes in the walls were poorly patched & plumbing from bathroom was visible through the wall. Felt dirty all over.

Desk person was not organized and asked for no ID to verify the reservation. No receipt was offered. The room was not cleaned after the first nights stay, had to tell a worker to make sure it was cleaned for the next night stay. There was a fridge and microwave bit no coffee maker.

Room was not clean and sheets were stained. Carpet was dirty and had a musty odor. There was a hole in the glass window and it appeared that the lock on the door was pried on. I don't recommend anyone staying here. The phones were also not available.

Pros: The closeness to the Jet Express to get to Put In Bay
Cons: For the owner/manager to pay at least $5 more than the minimum wage to keep a housekeeper on staff, especially during peak season.
Location: The location is within minutes of fast food restaurants, mom-pop stores, and the Jet Express and Ferry Boat to get to the Put In Bay Island.
When we walked into the lobby it was bright and clean,but it was the complete opposite when we walked into our room.We were there to spend some time at Put In Bay on Friday and find a beach somewhere on Saturday.So Friday was a pleasant day until I took my shower and noticed that the shower curtain was mildewed and the tub looked dingy.We sprayed it down with Lysol to kill any surface germs and continued our stay.I woke up that Saturday morning with itching ankles, then we noticed bugs (dark and red ones) crawling in the bed that smeared red when kill.Of course when we called for the owner to look at the bed,we couldn't find any because we killed them all (at least the ones we saw we killed).He offered to reimburse us for our second night stay but realized that we booked thru Expedia and had to go thru them.Because of formalities, Expedia needed to speak with the "owner",but because the housekeeper quit on July 4th weekend, it left the "owner" responsible for cleaning rooms.He asked Expedia to call back in a certain time frame.During our wait in the car,we saw the cart of towels fall over on its side.Him and his assistant kindly picked them up, refolded them and placed them back on the cart.Unknown to a guest,she takes her old towels and place them in the cart to be cleaned and pulled "fresh" towels from the cart. Needless to say, we never got our money back because we saw too much! BTW, by 11am on Saturday, I had bed bug bites all over my body and was denied reimbursement!

Got a good deal with expedia, but the hotel was poor at best. The staff were surly and curt. They stated that they had coffee/tea for breakfast, but that is if you get down early enough for the first round of the same coffee grounds. We arrive at 10am and the coffee was lighter than the tea. There was mold between the picture frames and prints as well as in the bathroom. The room had an overall feeling of dampness, very uncomfortable. But it is close to the ferry and that was the purpose of our stay.

Pros: Nohing comes to mind.
Cons: Little things, like providing maid service, providing the continental breakfast that I was told about upon checking in.
Location: Fishing, Lake activities
The hotel facillity was not great, but not THAT bad. What pushed me over the edge was that the maid service was nonexistent, literally. No one came to clean up the room, empty trash, make the bed, etc. When I checked in, I was told there was a continental breakfast to be served, starting at 6:00 AM. There was no breakfast.

Cons: We thought it was closer to the Jet express and we would be able to walk there, but it was more like a 10 minute drive.
It was the only room available within the amount of money that I was looking to spend considering we were going to Put in Bay most of the night anyhow. So we basically needed a place to sleep and were only looking for 1 night. The room isn't perfect but by no means does it deserve negative feedback! If you're looking for a 5 star hotel, you're going to pay the price for a 5 star!! It did us well!
