Paid too much for the quality of the room, but hey, at least we found a room! We decided to stay spontaneously so we were happy to find a place that was available... they even gave us a toothbrush and toothpaste! It was nice enough... kind of a party place during the weekend but didn't bother us too much.

Came for labor day weekend. Front desk attendant was very nice and helpful. The bubble gum rally was neat. Room was musty and in definite need of a dehumidifier. There is a lack of lighting in the room itself. More ceiling lighting or lamps. I had a little issue with housekeeping because I dropped my phone on the floor and... More

My wife and I stayed at the Islander Inn for our anniversary; we had a great time on the island, but this hotel was lackluster. It was just before "Christmas in July"; we got the room at a discount (likely because they realized how crowded and noisy it would be). Once we got settled into the room before bed, we... More

I've stayed here several times, but nothing recent until this year. Spent 2 days and enjoyed every minute. Great party atmosphere on the weekend and wonderful relaxing time on Monday. The staff was welcoming and my wife & I felt very safe and secure.

The original island carribean themed hotel. The swim up bar, hot tub, swimming pool and lazy river swimming pool make it a great family location. If you are looking for the wilder side of island drinking before walking into the evening activities offered in town, step across the parking lot to the other swim up bar! Not the newest hotel,...

I've stayed at this hotel for 9 years. The service gets worse. The rooms are over priced. They are dirty and out dated for the price you pay. Visit the bar and buy a drink from Nick. The pool atmosphere is wonderful. Live music is nice. Pool and hot tub are clean. This is a public pool so pack up... More

My sister law and I spent just the day in PIB, due to my sister in law ending up in the emergency center we missed the last jet express and had to book a hotel last minute.

Awful experience. Pools filthy, carpeting wet in room, vomit outside our door, dresser drawers broken, mold on shower curtain, holes in walls where big picture was destroyed by wild party goers! Health department needs to investigate this place. We took our family here four years ago and it was a wonderful place. What a disappointment. Staff was very apologetic but... More

Stayed here for the first time and I will be back. The front staff were very friendly each time we interacted with them. The pool area was really nice and not too crazy like the other bars around the hotel. It was nice because our rooms were quite but could walk to another pool if you want to be in... More

Compared to some of the other hotels, this one is far enough away from the noise and bustle of the bars and clubs, but also close enough to walk to the main strip within several minutes. An array of different pools are available, the channel selection is nice and the red lighting keeps away excess bugs, especially the May flies... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Islander Inn is Put-in-Bay's first and largest Caribbean style resort. We have 115 rooms surrounding 4 swimming pools including a large heated pool, conversation pool with a waterfall, 30 person jacuzzi as well as our swim-up-bar pool. The Islander Inn also features the island's original swim-up bar, The Dizzy Lizard. The Dizzy has 9 seats in the water and and seats on land. This is the bar that changed how afternoons were spent on Put in Bay. At the back of our courtyard sits Crash Landings, a bar with an airplane crashed into the top of it. Both of these are open from mid May through mid September, weather permitting. Located between the Islander Inn and our sister hotel, the Grand Islander, sits Put-in-Bay's #1 afternoon hotspot Splash! Splash is the World's Largest Swim-up Bar. We have 97 bar seats in the water and 120 chaise lounge chairs outside of the pool for sunbathing. With live entertainment on the weekends and plenty of other fun during the week, Splash is definitely the place to cool off and have a cold drink with your best friends. Overlooking Splash is The Flaming Skull. The Skull is a full scale pirate ship that sits next to Splash. Guests can walk up on the deck and watch out over the pool while having a drink at the 80 seat bar. Get your picture taken with the captain so your friends will believe you when you say you were on a pirate ship on Put-in-Bay. We are located right in the heart of downtown Put-in-Bay and are within walking distance to most of the major attractions. Should you want to explore the island a little more, we do have golf carts available for rent at our Front Desk with some of the lowest rates on the island. You can rent a cart for a couple hours or go all day if you want. ... more   less
