The service at this resort was nice.. Everyone was friendly during our one night stay... Our room was huge, with a very nice patio, nice beds, and a great shower! The resort has its own shuttle that runs downtown PIB... Had a great view from the outside patio... Will definitely be back and would recommend this resort to friends.

Another great weekend at PIB.....The weather could have been better, but everyone had a good time regardless during Fall Ball. Bay Lodging staff were very helpful & professional, as usual. The hotel is always clean, and the location is very good for getting to downtown. But, also to get back to and relax away from all the fun....lol.

Short two walk block to town. Nice indoor/outdoor pool bar area of their own! On weekends they have their own taxi service for you. Friendly. Breakfast each morning included except Saturday's. Quiet area unless your next to the 20 person suite but we know kids like to have fun so it didn't bother us.

My fiancé and I booked a short one night stay at this hotel with very high expectations, based on a groupon. We bought a groupon for a one night stay, golf cart and 50 beverage voucher. We stayed on a Sunday into a Monday looking to enjoy a calmer atmosphere on Put-In-Bay attempting to get some much needed R&R. There...

I'm more inclined to use bed and breakfasts upon my stay on the island of Put in Bay but took a chance on a hotel given we wanted to celebrate an upcoming birthday and anniversary with the whole family. Social Living had a pkg. deal through this lodge. When I called to schedule for available dates on a particular week,...

The good point - it is not in the middle of town so you avoid the late night noise. On the down side I felt like I paid a fair price and got a room with a king size bed - PERIOD. No chair, no desk, not even a luggage rack. Had to keep the luggage on part of the...
