The staff were professional, yet friendly and helpful. My room was sparse, yet clean. You can hear street noise, but that is to be expected when you are staying in the middle of the strip in downtown Put in Bay. After going out all day and half the night, the noise is not a hindrance to sleep. The rooms have... More

The hotel is old and delapadated. The staff is rude an the communal bathrooms are disgusting. The air conditioning window unit are old, loud and do not cool. The owners should be ashamed of themselves...I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone...

What a crap hole. No service, filthy facilities, and a dorm-like atmosphere make this hotel a hellish stay on put in bay. No TV, no phone and a gang bathroom down the hall that hasn't been properly cleaned in months. But the finishing touch is the night help who treat their guests like prisoners in the local drunk tank.

The Park Hotel is a step back in time right in the heart of PIB. The staff is great and we all felt warm and welcome. We were warned before booking by Phillip and the website that there were some unique things about the Park like shared bathrooms and the noise from the Roundhouse Bar, which I thought was very...

My wife and I decided at the last minute to come to this island and found all the other hotels were booked solid. Upon entering the lobby you jetted back in time before TV or telephones . The rooms are small intimate with plenty of natural light. It takes some time to get used to the communal facilities, otherwise for... More

This was my second year staying at the park hotel. The price is what attracts us the most. We stayed Sunday to Tuesday for only 80.00 a night which gave us room to spend our monies on other things. The manager was extremely friendly and accomodating. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy. Another great put in bay stay!

The Park Hotel is not your typical place. They successfully strive to maintain the Victorian rooming house feel. You are renting a room and a bed, the rest is shared ammenities. I did not love the bathroom situation, but I didn't hate it either. The location and ambiance is pretty good. The price was fantastic. Fortunately when you call to... More

Great hotel for the price and location. This is a historic hotel so you should not be expecting modern amenities. The decor is quaint. My room had not been vacuumred before my arrival but it was the next day. Also the wallpaper was peeling in my room but other than that perfectly clean. Each floor shares a bathroom but the... More

The Park Hotel is the oldest hotel on the island. I've stayed there many times over the years. The rooms are small, but nice and clean. The people are very friendly. You just rent a room here--there are no TVs, phones, wifi, etc. Know that going in. You also have to walk down the hallway to use the restroom and... More
