My husband and I spent three days at Sandcastle Suites this past June for our trip to Cedar Point. Many of the reviews are correct, this hotel needs some upgrading, but my husband and I truly enjoyed this property. Our room was equipped with a mini fridge which was convenient; my only complaint is about the couch. The couch in... More

We had a great room at the end of the building with a beautiful screened in corner patio overlooking Lake Erie. We were able to check in early (check in time was 4pm, we checked in around 9am) Staff was friendly and quickly replaced our coffee maker which wasn't in working order. It could use a little updating as some... More

Cedar Point has become the Midwest mecca of coasters. They do a fantastic job with the coasters and the park keeps getting better. BUT, they should stay out of the hotel business. Sandcastle Suites is in desperate need of a remodel. Everything is very dated and the rooms are very small. The pool was small and the hot tub was... More

There are alot of good things about this hotel, but I'll never stay again. The mattresses are so cheap and uncomfortable that I couldn't sleep, and after three hours all my joints ached. And the couch bed mattress was even worse, not suitable for anyone over three years old! The pillows were cheap flat crap; luckily we brought our own.... More

We loved Sandcastle Suites. It was perfect for our stay. Being at Cedar Point for Halloweekends is one of our favorite things to do as a company trip. This was the first time we spent the night. The suite was a decent size and a great value for a whole day at the park. With the tickets being included in... More

We visit Cedar point during September 2013, and stay for one night in the Sandcastle suites. The main reason was the location, very close to the park and possibility to have one hour earlier entry. We were family of 5, including 3 teen-age boys and book two-room apartment. Overall it was enough please for everybody, although ones the coach is... More

The new manager is destroying Cedar Point! The hotel room, halls and elevator smelled extremely musty even though they tried to cover the stench with stinkier perfumy "deodorizer". Got a surprise on the ticket prices...they charge an extra $10 per ticket and an extra $10 per fast pass ticket on weekends!! "Small print" that you can't see of you are... More

I apologize that you were not happy with your experience and that we couldn't resolve it while you were here. For hotel guests, the price of a one-day ticket is $34 - no matter what day of the week you visit. I'm not sure what the confusion was with that ticket. FastLane ticket pricing is based on the day you... More

We stayed for two nights in early June at the Sand Castle suites and visited cedar point. We drove in and came to the hotel at 10:00 am on a Tuesday morning. You need to pay the parking fee entering the peninsula, but this is paid back when you check in. Also you get a pass to enter and exit... More
