My father and I rolled in here late at night weary and exhausted. The lady from East India who checked us in was very pleasant:-). The room was VERY clean. It had a refrigerator, 32 inch flat screen tv, microwave and small coffee maker (which I don't use, I don't drink coffee). Though to some it might seem basic and... More

We almost went with a hotel that cost twice as much and I'm very glad we didn't! The motel room was VERY clean, cleaner than many nice hotels I've stayed in. The bathroom was remodeled and the bed was very comfortable. The motel doesn't look special from the outside but I promise it's well worth staying here - locally- and... More

I started to smile as soon as I pulled in: It reminded me of the motels my family would stop in on vacations 50+ years ago. The motel is in the bungalow style - just one story, no hallways, and the rooms all face out to a courtyard. Each room has its own open garage, which was wonderful, because it... More

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.
