I stayed here a couple months ago before a trip to cedar point and omg was it bad. Cloths still in the draw, coffee in the coffee pot still, toilet dirty, room smelled, breakfast was very poor, the made service took stuff to room to room had no cart or any kind of usually system to clean rooms. It was... More

Unless you are looking for a room to rent by the hour I highly advise against staying here. Debbie at the front desk was very rude to our group. She checked us in early and told us our rooms would be ready within a hour. We left and got lunch and returned after a hour. Our rooms were still being... More

Being that the room was $60/night, I wasn't expecting a top notch resort but it was a big disappointment. The room was filthy, sheets and blankets were severely stained. The bathroom was very very small. I mean I think it was a closet converted to a bathroom seriously. There was a small dorm type fridge in our room and it... More

We arrived, checked in, and we were not expecting the Ritz, and we were fine with the room. Then we realized the door did not lock. We got another room from the office, but the room was in a back hallway, up the stairs, and the was no fridge and microwave. So we opt for the broken room after they... More

We recently stayed at this hotel on 9/28/2013 for a quick Cedar Point trip. Typically we stay at a resort hotel in the park but decided since this was a quick trip no need to pay all that money. I saw some mixed reviews on this site but decided to give it a try. We pulled up at 2pm on... More

At first, by the name, I wasn't too thrilled my buddy picked this place, and upon arrival i wasn't wow'ed by the place, but then i entered the room and was a surprise. A nicely updated room top to bottom, even a refrigerator to store drinks. No old hotel smell at all (since you might assume it based on the... More

I recently stayed here and don't understand any of the complaints. The front desk ladies are very nice and go above and beyond to help you. I know that the donuts were fresh in the morning cuz I heard the desk clerk call in the order. They also said when we checked in that it was a small breakfast of... More

The rooms were modestly sized but came with everything we needed. They accommodated out request for a fridge and the staff was very friendly. Also, it's within 5 minutes to the medical center there (don't ask why I know!). Diane's Deli, known for the best breakfast in Sandusky, is just three places down the street! We enjoyed our stay!
