All of the updated hotel rooms come equipped with high-speed free wifi, refrigerators, and microwaves.

If you’re hosting a large group, catering is available for groups of up to 100 people. This is the perfect option for business meetings at the conference center, banquets, weddings, and parties. The Green Room is available for rent upstairs, or you can reserve Mr. Ed’s Bar & Grille for the whole night of your private function. Another great indoor/outdoor option for your event is the MIST Tiki Bar. This space can accommodate up to 200 guests and is flexible for most event needs.

Aijah G: “It was my first-time to PIB for my bachelorette party and I made the right choice to stay at The Commodore Resort. Check-in was easy, the staff at the desk are so friendly, and it’s near to everything you want to visit right in downtown. The Mist outdoor pool right beside the resort was always a great time. If you’re a person who likes to enjoy the most of it, you should definitely stay at The Commodore. They even honored the difference in the rates as I had extended my stay and the prices changed later. Great management and great staff. I will always come here to stay. And I also recommended it to all of my friends too.”

Debbie L: “This boutique hotel is really nice and comfortable. There’s a pool outside that has a bar you can swim up to, and waterfalls that are all lit up at night. Rooms are nice, and there are earplugs offered so you can block out the nightlife if you want to. Just a quick and cheap Put-in-Bay taxi ride from the Miller ferry!”

Harry P: “Had a great time. We usually stay at Island Club Rentals but had a smaller group this time and decided to try out The Commodore. The poolside room is great, the staff is friendly and efficient. The rooms are clean and well equipped. Be prepared for a bit of late-night noise because it’s a party place. Also, the office is located in an ally 1/2 block from Delaware Ave, but this puts you within walking distance to everything else. For things that aren’t within walking distance, there is a golf cart rental place right next door.”
