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

The place is literally on the backside of Castaway Bay Resort. I stayed here for one night, the room was clean and beds were surprisingly very comfortable. While you don't get the perks of staying at a Cedar Point resort, this is a much cheaper alternative. We paid $75 total for one night during one of the busiest weekends, while... More

This room was disgusting! The carpet was so dirty it looked like black grease spots all over. The floor was not vacuumed, there was hair all over the blankets, hair stuck it the shower curtain, pubes in the tub, and the room smelled like pee! Must disgusting place I have ever stayed at! Do not even concider staying here if... More

I went to the hotel and asked to inspect the room. I asked for a non-smoking room. When I opened the door the first thing I smelled was smoke. There was hair on the pillows and floor had a coating of greasy grime on it. I expect 1 thing from a cheap motel. Clean. This hotel is not clean. The... More

This place is RIGHT by Cedar Point. Very reasonable rates, especially compared to other hotels in Sandusky. You get what you pay for, though. The sign outside said 'free wifi'. We were informed by the gentleman that checked us in that the free wifi is only in the lobby & breakfast room of the hotel. We had a very basic... More

This is a great place to stay. It was quiet, kids enjoyed the pool when back from cedar point until past 12. The staff was wonderful. Breakfast was good enough to get you through until lunch. I am planning on staying here again next year for a week. Great price.

We stayed here in July while spending a few days at Cedar Point. The five of us (all adults) were able to stay in one room, which was nice. The room itself was clean and spacious, though maybe a bit dated. The bathroom was very clean. It's location to Cedar Point is fantastic, 5 minutes from hotel to park gates!... More

My family and I had decided to stay at this motel after spending the day at Cedar Point. The price was right and we just needed a place to rest our heads for the night. The Budget Host Inn served this purpose and overall, we were pleased with our stay. The rooms were large and clean, but had a musty... More

We stayed here on July 6, 2013. This hotel is very close to Cedar Point. Pool was very nice and clean and we were allowed to swim to 12:00 AM as long as noise level was kept to a minimum. We rented two rooms and both were very comfortable and clean. If you are on a budget and want somewhere... More

The Budget Host Inn in Sandusky, Ohio was an okay stay. The lobby and hospitality room was in one building, and most of the rooms were in the other. It is a two floor building. Doors facing outside. There are no elevators so you have to climb up a flight of stairs. The rooms have air conditioning. There is no... More
