Room was filthy. Smelt horrible! Could tell it had not been cleaned , found chips in the bed!!! The staff seemed nice. The dryer wouldn't dry clothes after two cycles. Just being there made me feel nasty.

I am very sorry your stay with us was not an enjoyable one. While we do have an excellent reputation for having very clean rooms, I can"t say they may not miss something. You have the right to a perfectly clean room so If this should ever happen again, please don't hesitate to contact the front desk. We would have... More

Although we stayed at this hotel a couple years ago and at that time the room we stayed in was clean and comfortable, this time the room we were assigned was filthy and unhealthy. We were shocked to find this when we entered the room. We were hit with the bad odor of mold and mildew. The carpeting had large... More

Our group of eleven couples booked rooms well in advance for our stay while attending an event at the Summit Motorsport Park - the location was handy and the grass area across from the rooms was perfect for setting up our chairs to visit with each other and hash over the days events at the park; the included free breakfast...

About a year has passed since my last review of this motel, I have to say I have noticed some positive changes. Being a corporate client, I travel a lot. I prefer to stay the this motel when I am in the area, roughly every other weekend. The rooms are newly painted and/or re-decorated. The rooms also provide a refrigerator... More

I'd never heard of the Econo Lodge before. Cycling across the country on a budget - this place was spot on. The man on the front desk was interested in what I was doing & offered a discount for the night. It cost me just over $40. A bargain considering there was a free breakfast thrown in as well. The...

I agree with the June 27, 2013 reviewer: "The motel is the old...park by your door motel." We got a recently renovated jacuzzi suite king bed room; the rooms are very small, but clean with recently painted/re-decorated walls. Frig and microwave equipped room and the matresses were very firm which is GREAT for bad backs, or after a long drive.... More

We stayed a night after spending all day at Cedar Point. I thought we were going to drive a bit after the park to get away from the high Sandusky prices, but the park was too much fun and we were too tired to go far and all the higher rated and closer hotels were booked. This is about 25... More

New owners. The motel is the old motel, park by your door motel. Our room was very clean with fresh paint and carpet. Mattress was firm. A little too firm for my taste but I slept well.
