Our group of 8 people came here for drinks before dinner. My husband had a White Manhattan and I had a Cranberry Orange Margarita. Both were delicious and we had friendly and quick service. Would stop in again.

Downtown Sandusky’s independent hotel with two bars one on the roof and a Taco restaurant. Rooms are great. Fine dining choices are a short walk. Entertainment venues also in walking distance. Jet Express to Cedar Point and Lake Erie Islands just across the street

Set on the waterfront, Hotel Kilbourne is located in the heart of Sandusky, Ohio's entertainment scene. Kilbourne's public spaces include Moseley's Public house and rooftop venue both always populated with More visitors and locals alike. Walk around downtown a bit and discover an eclectic variety of restaurants, shopping, activities, and culture. Less
