Great place to stay if you are in the Sandusky area. Close to Cedar Point and other attractions. Staff was very friendly and helpful, room was clean and comfortable and the pool was very relaxing after a long day at Cedar Point. Will definitely stay again on future trips.

We checked in late and they were notified and they accomadated. Staff is friendly. Beds were comfy. BUT on the last day, we had swarms of BUGS lingering outside our door as I opened it they flew into the room! I spent the next hour killing them!!

Clean rooms, friendly staff and very affordable! This hotel is just minutes away from cedar point, which was really convenient. Definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place to stay while visiting CP.

I chose this motel because of the location. Being in town for Bike Week 2015, the motel is close to everything we had plans to see. Not a fancy place but very clean and the staff was cordial and accommodating. We had a mess up due to the booking company reserving two rooms for me but only relaying one reservation... More

Found this location thru Trip Advisor. Main reasons I booked were pool, cost and location to Cedar Point. Wanted something close to crash after a long day at CP, breakfast, a pool to relax and not break the bank. Was told we could probably check in any time after 11, which was nice. Ended up checking in about 3:30. Lobby... More

This is where we always stay when we go to Cedar Point. It is only a block from Cedar Point Drive and is close to plenty of restaurants. This is not a fancy place, but it's always reasonably clean and has a decent continental breakfast. The people working the desk have always been very friendly and helpful. Last year we... More

The front desk attendant Nichole was extremely friendly and helpful. Our reservation got lost, but she quickly took care of it and recommended some activities we may find interesting. The room was very clean and the mattresses looked new, but was a little outdated. It was located close to everything, so it was a really good value at $42/night. Breakfast... More

The ONLY thing good about this hotel was how close it was to Cedar Point Amusement park. Upon check in it appeared to be a clean smaller room, but when I went to take a shower there was someone's hair on the shower wall grim around the bottom of the toilet and the inside of the toilet could use a...
