Its nice and close to the water... also gave a new feel to an old building

We were not informed that there was a roof top bar above our room. Also that there was an event in town and that parking would be blocks away. One set of keys to the room did not work. Only had one key fob to gain entry to the main door. the other "was not programmed yet". A light in the room would turn on and off on it own so it had to be unplugged. When we checked out early and brought all this to the attention of the front desk staff she said the owner would be in contact. They never reached out. Could be cool place to stay but not if you want peace and quiet

Great location in downtown. Rooms were comfortable and the restaurant and bar down stairs was awesome. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Will be staying here again for sure!

nice location, great view from rooftop bar, I had a basic room; no real comfortable place to sit & watch TV, other than the bed.

Great little hotel in Sandusky, Ohio with excellent staff and best tacos i ever had

We really enjoyed our stay. The location is great. Bars, restaurants, and shopping all within walking distance. The cocktails in the hotel bar were delicious, the food in the restaurant was excellent, and the overall ambiance was chic. The Nespresso machines in the rooms were a welcome amenity. My only real complaint or critique is the noise level. They could stand to do a bit of soundproofing so that I don't have to hear the whispered conversations of the room next door, or even when they use the bathroom. Despite that, we will definitely be staying here again because everything else more than makes up for it.

Cozy, calm relaxed environment. Close to shops and restaurants.

Have stayed at hotels around the world, and this one stands out as one of the more memorable ones. Small, but so much character and just wonderful staff. Highly recommended!!!

Staff was amazing while checking in. We had a change of plans and had to cancel the second night, they did so with no problem at all. Unlikely for a large hotel chain to do that.

Felt like I was staying at home (but a much better decorated home and bathroom). Staff was courteous, parking was ideal and free, well worth the money. I would absolutely stay here again.

We had a pretty room with a lake view. Very comfortable, clean, and quiet. Close to shops, restaurants and the ferry. Two nice bars in the hotel; one a rooftop bar overlooking the lake.
