If this hotel were ANY where else, even at 1/2 the price, it would rate Much lower, but as they say...location, location, location! The rooms were just OK, not soundproofed very well, clean enough... There was a worrisome and annoying overbearing "room freshener" smell in hallways, and all we could think of is what are they covering up... and the... More

Location was great, rooms were very clean and comfortable. The price is on the high side especially without free breakfast, but the early entry to Cedar point was really worth it and made the difference

We decided to stay at Sandcastle Suites after reading that some of the other hotels were a bit rundown. I was so glad we decided to stay here! The room is a great value considering it includes the park tickets, you don't need to pay for parking, and you are only a few minute walk away from the park entrance.... More

We have always driven there, enjoyed the park all day, and then driven home into the wee hours. Staying on site was so much more enjoyable. Arrived, got a good night's sleep and entered the park early, all rested and refreshed! Discounted tickets, free parking and early entry were all perks that helped to make the room rate more tolerable.... More

Room at Sand Castle Suites was decent but carpet turned feet and white socks black. Bugs in outer breezeway and pool were horrible. Also saw a rat wandering around by the pool. Staff didn't seem overly concerned when informed. Shuttle service was good but had to wait 20 plus minutes a few times. Check in and out was easy. Overall... More

We are a family of 6 and enjoyed staying at Sandcastle Suites. The room was a bit tight, but we all had a place to sleep and it was clean! The staff was helpful. The hotel is minutes away on foot from the park - we walked all but one time to the park. We stayed 3 days and did... More

This was our first visit to Sandcastle Suites at Cedar Point in 15 years and it may be our last! My family and I have always enjoyed going to the park and this time we decided to stay closer and enjoy the lake view from our room. However, for what Cedar point wants on a daily basis for their basic... More

The hotel has ways been nice enough and the location is the best selling point. But, with the new management the maintenance and housekeeping is very much on par with the premium pricing. The cleanliness and daily housekeeping is impressive. We are very much looking forward to the future upgrades to this property that they are currently doing to the... More

Where to start....my husband's employer sends our family to cedar point every year. Usually we pay around $100 - $150 to stay on the mainland. This year we thought we would splurge and pay $324 (total) for a night on the island... never again! On the positive side the hour early admission to the park was OK and we managed... More

We chose Sandcastle Suites because of the closeness to Cedar Point and Soak City. We have stayed at this resort twice before. We like the 3 Day Ride and Slide ticket packages and being able to use the shuttle to travel around the area. We had requested a particular room that we had another time that was ground floor poolside.... More
