It felt like we were in Mexico. The owners have done such an amazing job with this property. The rooms were very well maintained and updated. The pools were clean and the staff was absolutely phenomenal. You constantly saw workers walking around keeping everything clean. The bartenders were so kind and welcoming. The vibe was so much fun! Live DJ, contest and games out by he pool. The location couldn’t be more perfect.

Can guests bring their own alcohol to their hotel rooms?

Yes, guests are welcome to bring their own alcohol to their hotel rooms. We want to ensure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. If you have any further questions or if there’s anything else we can assist you with, feel free to let us know. Cheers to a great stay!

Can guests stroll between bars in Put-in-Bay while enjoying a drink?

Unfortunately, no. Although Ohio has introduced the concept of ‘Designated Outdoor Refreshment Areas’ (D.O.R.A.s), Put-in-Bay is not currently designated as one of them.

Is it necessary to bring my car to the island?

Leave your car behind! Our golf cart rentals are available upon arrival, and you can seamlessly include them in your reservation. Experience the convenience of Put-in-Bay’s close-knit layout, and with limited parking on the island, it’s a smart way to save your money!

Is it necessary to make ferryboat reservations in advance?

No, reservations are not required for the Miller Ferry; it’s walk-up only. However, for the Jet Express, they offer both walk-up and presale options. Keep in mind that the Miller Ferry is more budget-friendly but requires a 2 minute taxi ride to downtown that costs around $5 per rider depending on which taxi used. It’s worth noting taxis are ready and waiting when you walk off the Miller Ferry. On the other hand, the Jet Express takes you directly downtown. Both ferries provide a unique experience!
