The property is close to Cedar Point, but is is need of cleaning and updating. The carpet and chairs were stained horribly -- I refused to go barefoot in the room, and slept on top of the bedspread. The bathroom lock did not work properly -- it was loose and half-dangling the entire stay. The wi-fi connection never did connect... More

The hotel was very convenient in regards to Cedar Point. Comparing prices with othe hotels nearby and further away, this hotel was worth the price. Owners are in the process of renovating the rooms. During our stay not all the rooms were completed. Rooms were decent size and beds comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful with any requests. They... More

We flew from Florida to Cleveland then drove to Sandusky. A big trip to go to Cedar point. We chose to stay here for AA Advantage points we wanted to redeem. Upon entering room you could smell it. We stayed 2 nights. You could smell it everytime you entered the room. MOLD MILDEW and could see the no padding carpet... More

If this had a 0 star I would pick that. This place is disgusting and is NOT renovated at all. The front office staff is EXTREMELY unprofessional. When we checked in there was a problem with another customer and the office staff handled it terribly. My children heard the front office staff cursing, yelling and making a HUGE sceffne to... More

the lobby was beautiful. Pool and surrounding area looked nice with a small swing set and picnic table. The room needed updating and cleaning. Ours smelled like old, stale smoke and had some fruit flies. All in all it worked out fine for our one night stay after being at Cedar Point.

I stayed at South Shore Inn during a trip to Cedar Point. The best thing about it was that it was literally less than 1/2 mile from the main road to Cedar Point, so finding it was extremely easy. Parking seemed to be pretty decent, and the neighborhood looks pretty safe. The sign was an old sign that had seen... More

After using TripAdvisor to find a decent Hotel close to Cedar Point I found this one. It was a great stay, the room was clean, however as others have mentioned it was outdated, our room was a suite with a separate bedroom, of which had two TVs that were very old fashioned (who uses Tube TV's anymore these days)?

Most of the rooms have outside entrances off the parking lot like a 1950s roadside motel. We were assigned a room with a chemical smell, so asked to change. The second room (non-smoking) reeked so badly of cigarette smoke we changed back. The bed was comfortable, but the room was dingy, the TV was an old model, and instead of... More
