Stayed at this great little place after a long day at Cedar Point. Reviews are spot on, small, quaint, friendly. Owners go out if their way to make you feel welcome. Are the rooms dated, show wear, small, all yes, but clean and we loved it. Owner offered to keep pool open so our 7y/o could swim but we declined... More

Very affordable, clean comfortable motel. The owners are welcoming and good people. We have stayed there three times now, when going to Cedar Point. My older children have stayed there also. It makes a quick family trip easy to agree too. You save a TON of money. My teenagers will sleep anywhere if it means a trip to the point,... More

This retro-style motel miles from Cedar Point has been owned by the Faber family for over 90 years. A classic car and neon lights adorn the property. Our room is always clean and the staff is always friendly and accommodating. We have stayed twice now and will return!

The owner and her son are wonderful hosts. They answered our questions and helped us to get the most out of our stay in Sandusky. The location next to wetland/park area is really quite beautiful too. We enjoyed a walk around the park a couple of times -- seeing quite a bit of wildlife, including a large turtle. The rooms... More

We stayed at Maples only one night, but we would definitely stay there again if we had the chance. We stayed in one of the cabins. It reminded us of summer camp. Definitely not posh, but clean and comfortable. And we weren't bothered at all by the train. Slept very well. The owner's son checked us in and out. He... More

Stayed with three friends on a Cedar Point adventure and had a fantastic time. The owners were incredibly hospitable, providing fun conversation and even offering to heat up left over pizza for us in their stove! Service was above and beyond! Absolutely an incredible stay!

Just stayed here again a few weeks ago, still as pleasant as before. We stayed in the large family room this time, quite roomy and was kept cool the whole time, though there was six people in there. I will definitely go back to this hotel. just one place I know will be great.

My fiancé and I were looking for an inexpensive room with a convienant location. We made a trip to Sandusky to check out a sailboat we recently purchased. I found this motel on trip advisor and decided to give it a shot. As I read, the owners were very hospitable and gracious. The motel is very close to cedar point... More

If you're going to stay here, you do it for the nostalgia, not for the amenities. We loved it! While driving there, our surroundings were looking more and more rural, and I joked to my husband, "Is this place in someone's backyard?" It literally is! The little motel is 90 years old and the office is in the back of... More

My boyfriend and I came down to Sandusky for our anniversary to go to Cedar Point, and we really couldn't afford much. I work for a major chain hotel, and even with the discounts I was offered, nothing beat the price and hospitality that the Maples has. I was a little hesitant on staying here because I had never even... More
