We were on our way to cedar point and all of the hotels were booked up and we were out until midnight trying to find a place to stay. So we ended up calling and booking this motel and went there. The lady at the front desk was very nice and let us have our pick at the room we... More

My son and his friends took off for a two day stay in the Sandusky area. Despite my warning that it would be very difficult to find a hotel room in their price range near Cedar Point they thought they would find something. Around 11 p.m. on a Saturday night I called them and they only found a hotel for... More

Simple, clean and quiet. A very good place to stay in Fremont. The woman who owns the hotel is a sweetheart - wanting to make sure everything was good for us! Did I say clean! The bathrooms were cleaner than mine at home! Nothing fancy but a great place to stay!

The staff was very nice Clean and nice room There was a Garage for the car right beside the room. Microwave and fridge were in the rooms. We stayed for 4 days and it was very comfortable. Coffemaker was also included. The waterpressure at the shower was very high, but thats better than too low. Would stay here again

Owners are super nice people who had us look at the rooms that were available in the style we wanted, and then pick the one we wanted. We do massive road trips every summer, and nothing like that has ever, ever happened to us. The rooms are basic and harken back to the days of roadside motels that were scattered... More

Very clean place, owners very friendly. Nice at home feel. Rooms were pretty large. Great price for the stay. Will stay here again. Has everything you need but I usually bring my own soaps. Nice size TV. Lots of pros and very little to no cons!

When I arrived no one was at the front desk. When I rang the buzzer the person who answered was very rude and was not willing to come up and help me. Do not waste your time staying here especially for the money. You can definitely find a better place for the same amount of money.

There isn't anything fancy or special about this motel. The owners are adorable and extremely friendly. A friend and I were driving to Colorado from Massachusetts and stopped here for a nights rest. We got there at 1am and the owners were very welcoming and sweet. When we left, they made sure we enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean.... More

For the money, it's good. Everything is basic, it's not the Hilton so if you are looking for the Hilton go there instead. But, everything is clean, it is obvious that the owners care very much how things look. They also care that you feel welcome. Very nice people.Everything looks freashly painted in my room, no bugs in the light... More

Everything about this motel was run down, the furniture, the towels, etc. When we looked up from our bed, the light was filled with dead insects. If you have children, beware of the TV. There is one very filthy channel.
