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

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

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
