Leave it to a guy to not read reviews before checking into a hotel. Check in was suppose to be at 3, out room wasn't even cleaned until after 4. Front office staff was nice enough, not overly friendly. I will say that the beds and linens were very clean but the rest of the room just seemed blah. There... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel after the races at Sandusky Speedway. My husband went to check into our hotel room and a fellow racing friend was in the Lobby explaining he just walked into his room and found 3 girls smoking crack. Big red flag. Should have left then. The hotel room was disgusting! The outlets didn't... More

That's where the good ends, the outside of the building is filthy, the bathroom was stained with mildew, the tub used to be pink and was repainted (?) white, there was a huge chunk of paint missing on tub, and paint was...

I spent about $96.00 to stay at this location. There is a strong smell at this property. I'm not sure what it is. It smelled like curry powder and body odor. If you've been overseas, you probably know what I'm talking about. My room was dirty. There were small bits of black plastic on the floor of my room. There... More

The hotel was just "okay" for the money--it was close to Cedar Point, restaurants, shopping, etc. However, there were several other hotels nearby that looked a lot nicer. There was no remote for the tv and no hair dryer. I had to go to the office to get both items and had to wait forever to get them. There were... More

We were litterally stuck staying here because all places were booked. I felt like I was in the getto walking into the entry way near the stairs. Very dirty, the door didn't even shut. The hallway wasn't bad and our room wasn't bad. The night guy who apparently was the manager forgot to give us our credit card. We checked... More

We showed up there this past Friday night (7/2/13) for our cedar point trip. When we walked in, the room itself (241) didn't send any red flags when we walked in. It was late so we just got to bed. The beds were incredibly unconfortable. Unless sleeping on a board is confortable to you. Throughout the night there was a... More

Stay away. There were dead bugs all over the ceiling in the bathroom. The walls were so thin that I could hear the people in the next room snoring. We overstayed the checkout time by a few minutes and they charged a ton to our credit card. The staff was very nice, however. Please, stay at another hotel for your... More
