We got a very cheap deal, and it was just barely worth it. Room was pretty run down for an expensive suite. It was COLD when we were there, and the heat in the room didn't work very well as the HVAC system is basically some rigged up tin on a window unit. Coffee was terrible. On the plus side,... More

Obviously the location is great. We even had a great view from our room. It was the mouse poop and mold that put me off. When we first went into the room we saw droppings all over the nightstand. I tried to call the front desk to see if I could switch rooms but the lines were busy. I didn't... More

The room compared to the pictures on the website doesn't compare. It was very very small. The beds and pillows were ok. The sofabed was awful. I wouldn't recommend using it. It was actually more comfortable without opening it. That aside, you pay for location. Getting in without paying for parking, driving directly to hotel, very quick check in, getting... More

First time staying at Sandcastle. Stayed Oct 3-5. Cold & rainy weekend. We had 5 adults sharing a suite with 2 queens and a sofabed. Once the sofabed was open, not much room to walk around. Bathroom was a little small. Suite was smaller than some Hampton Inn suites. Stayed for the convenience of walking distance to park and early... More

Stay on Oct 4th. Check in was fast. We stay on the rapture side. Area was quiet. Room was clean and spacious. Beds were comfortable. Nice view of the beach and lake. Quick shuttle to cedar point. Walking takes about 7 minutes. Overall experience was very good.

We planned a family trip, 5 adults and 3 y/o to cedar point, and decided to stay at the Sandcastle the night before. Upon arrival, our room smelled musty but it was clean. For the near $300 price tag we fount it to be rather cramped but given the perk of early admission to the park and discounted tickets it... More

I travel quite extensively and I am pretty high maintenance when it comes to hotel rooms. We booked a non view sand castle suite with 2 queen beds. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. The pull out couch bed was about the worst that I have seen so I would not recommend if you have anyone in your... More

Checked in at Sandcastle Suites on Friday. Staff was very courteous. Convenience store was unloading stock and it was scattered upon the floor. It was open for business anyway. Room was clean and well stocked, but no hot water. Problem was resolved by the time we returned from the park. Light was out. That was quickly fixed, too. Bed was... More

This was my friends and I's first time at Cedar Point and first time at Sandcastle Suites. We stayed from 9-12-14 to 9-14-14 and were there for the first Halloweekend. When booking the room, we chose this hotel because it seemed to have the best deals. I read others reviews after booking and I do have to say most everything... More

Checked in early as room was ready. Staff was nice & friendly & shuttle was very convenient but those were the only plus to staying here. Pulled back sheets on both beds when we got in the room & there were a few hairs on each bed. Went to the park but came back to room after dinner to get... More
