Staff was very friendly. Nice place, very clean and safe. The beach and marina are beautiful. Breakfast was poor, probably because of COVID19 restrictions.

Our stay was great as always. The history of The Island House is very interesting and the staff are always very friendly and knowledgeable. The Island House always feels like a second home to us when we stay!

Downtown location. Walking distance to restaurants. Nice continental breakfast..

Nobody was at the counter to check several of us in, took about 10 minutes for someone to show up. The rooms are a bit small, not an issue, and the older decor is charming. But there were a bunch of markings and nichs on the furniture and walls of the room, and our chair in the room had a few stains. Bathrooms were clean, updated look. Breakfast was okay, free though.

This is historic hotel more 100 years but nicely updated. Keeps the traditional atmosphere while offering updated bath beds and room. There are many restaurants within walking distance.

Great location for the Walleye Drop. Historical building that has been kept up nicely. Beds were sooooo comfy!! Almost did not go down for breakfast which was a nice offering of eggs, bacon and tots. Also a waffle iron, fruit, english muffins and the usual fare. Will most definitely stay again.

Beautiful hotel... older but love the history! Very clean, great staff and friendly area!!

Overall, this is a decent hotel in a great location near restaurants, Jet Express, a beach and local bars to include an awesome bar located within the hotel. The room sizes are very misleading compared to what is pictured online. I understood that we were not booking an apartment or suite, but this was perhaps the smallest hotel room that I’ve ever slept in. Staff was very welcoming and friendly; however, overall cleanliness was slightly subpar. For example, one of my pillow cases contained what looked to be a blood stain, there was an opened bottle of shampoo/soap in the shower upon entry and the exterior was littered in seagull feces which could be at least slightly remedied with a hose/power washing. Although the hotel is meant to maintain its historic touch, it could use some minor enhancements. For instance, keeping the original woodwork, but upgrading dingy hallway carpet. I would recommend this hotel with some reservation, especially for the price paid. The saving grace being kind staff, location and a great bar.

Great find in Port Clunic. Very nice hotel with character and comfortable room. Enjoyed the walk to the lighthouse and along the beach.

The room was much smaller than what was shown in the pictures. The TV was very old and small. The hitter/air conditioner was also very old, noise and was not working properly. It would run forever if you did not turn it on/off manually. So, either you get a lot of hit and noise or you turn it off and freeze.

Nice place. Fun historical info throughout. Shower was small but if you think about when the hotel opened, it shouldn't be a surprise. Would stay again.
