In your search for lodging at Put-in-Bay, you’ve likely come across all sorts of different places to stay. From resorts, to Waterfront Condos looking right at Lake Erie, to Put-in-Bay VRBO options in a great location, you might feel overwhelmed. These are all great options, but you might just be seeking something a little more familiar. What you are likely most familiar with, in that case, is the hotel, and Put-in-Bay has no shortage of them.
What Kind of Hotels & Resorts are at Put-in-Bay Ohio?
These hotels range from sprawling downtown Put-in-Bay hotspots right in the heart of the action to boutique hotels off the beaten path. A place like the Commodore Resort or the Edgewater Hotel are right in the thick of everything, and the Victory Station Hotel and Bay Lodging Resort are just detached enough from the downtown scene to be peaceful, while still being in touching distance to enjoy Put-in-Bay’s famous nightlife (our favorite spot is Mr. Ed’s!)
Put-in-Bay Room With a Poolview!
Most of these hotels also grant you access to one or more of Put-in-Bay’s famous pool bars. That’s great news because visiting a swim-up bar is one of the absolute must-do’s of Put-in-Bay bars.
This isn’t something you can find anywhere else in this area of the country but Put-in-Bay. Swim-up bars are typically the territory of Caribbean resorts. Then again, that’s the vibe you’ll find at Put-in-Bay as a whole. If you are there on a day with good weather, you’d be forgiven for mistaking it for Key West.
Alternative Put-in-Bay Ohio Lodging Options
From the shadow of Perry’s Monument to off the beaten path, there are vacation rentals all over the island. Spend your getaway at the Put-in-Bay Condos or Island Club Rentals and get your entire group together under the same roof. Check in is as simple as punching a code into the door! The condos have an incredible lakeview and both have their own private swimming pool and free wifi. These rental homes are often within walking distance of many attractions like Perry’s Cave, and a short taxi ride from the rest. Take a quick ferry ride from Catawba Island in Port Clinton, a stones throw away from Cedar Point in Sandusky, and enjoy a family getaway at the Bay. Experience the Lake Erie Islands as they were meant to be seen, as one of the premier vacation spots, not just for people from Cleveland or Toledo, but anywhere in the United States!
Put-in-Bay Hotel Amenities
Many of the best hotels also offer amenities like golf cart and moped rentals onsite to help you get around the island with ease. You can park your cart right out front! Of course if you’re only coming to the island for the nightlife, from some of these hotels all you’ll need to get around is your feet. And if that isn’t the case at your particular hotel, there are Put-in-Bay taxis all around the island to get you where you need to go, often as cheap as $3 a person!

What are the best Hotels with a pool at Put-in-Bay?
We recommend the Commodore Resort in downtown Put-in-Bay, as it is home to MIST Pool Bar, Put-in-Bay’s most famous swim-up bar. Put-in-Bay is known for its swim-up bars, as this is pretty much the only place in the northern United States to find them. A swim-up bar should definitely be on your Put-in-Bay checklist, and MIST is the best of the bunch!
Which hotels on Put-in-Bay are pet-friendly?
None as far as we know of. The only place on the island that we know of that permits pets is the Island Club, which allows them for stays from Sunday-Thursday.
How can I get to my hotel from the ferry?
If you ride the Miller Ferry, when you disembark, follow the crowd up the hill, where you will find a row of bubble-top taxi vans ready to take you anywhere on the island. If you come to Put-in-Bay via the Jet Express, taxis will frequently pass the downtown dock. At neither location should you expect to wait more than a minute or two for a ride regardless of time of day.
