Stayed here our second night of staying at Cedar Point. Stayed at Shore Inn next door for first night. Wish we would have stayed at Budget Host Inn for both nights. Room was the largest one we stayed at on our vacation this summer. Outdoor heated pool, looked clean but we did not use it. Two double beds, sofa sleeper,... More

Stayed here during a Cedar Point trip. Just needed a basic, clean, cheap room and this was exactly that. Still a little pricey at $80 a night (taxes included) but your paying for location. Nothing fancy, but it was clean and that's all I needed. Continental breakfast is offered, again nothing fancy just basic donuts, toast, hard boiled eggs, cereal,... More

We checked in late or would have found a different hotel. Sheets didn't fit the beds. Pop was splattered and dried on the wall. Someone else's used bar of soap was still in the shower. No WIFI as advertised!!!!!! Serious cobwebs in the light fixture. Bathroom shower curtain was nasty. PLEASE think twice before booking this hotel.

My room smelled terrible, the floor had food on it, the towels were dirty, and when I went to get into bed there was hair all over my sheets and a dead fly under the pillow! I called room service to come change my blankets and he seemed like it was such a bother, he said there is really nothing... More

Where do I start? When I made my reservation, I had no idea the hotel was so close to Cedar Point. The swimming pool was wonderful--outdoors and heated. The night we checked in, my grandson and I went down for a swim and the water was sparkling clean and wonderful. The hotel room itself wasn't fancy, but quite adequate, especially... More

Exactly what we needed for my family's recent Cedar Point trip. Half the price of any other hotel in the area, easy to find, only about a mile away, and close dining options. Comfortable, clean, and affordable. A real bargain for this area.

A friend and I stayed the night before we went to Cedar Point. Service was excellent. We were able to get a smoking room. The room was a little musty but once we started the air it wasnt long before it was fine. Beds were really comfortable and the room was clean! Will definently stay again!!

The fresh and clean lobby was deceiving. The room smelled of smoke so bad. The floor looked like it hadn't been vacuumed. The sofa bed was filthy! There were candy wrappers and coins in it. Even the towels looked dirty. The only good thing is that they let us move to another room and it was definitely much better! It... More

We stayed on the top floor. Our room was not dirty and the beds were comfortable. If you're just planning on staying a couple nights for a trip to Cedar Point then this is an affordable option! I will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips! Plus, it is right down the road from Cedar Point so you... More
