My husband and I stayed here for a night to go to Cedar Point the next morning. This motel is old school. I loved the sign. I think it could an update without losing that feeling. Steve, the owner, is friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast is at 7am and I mean 7am. It is just coffee and donuts and... More

I read reviews and thought this would be a nice retro motel to try on our road trip. The people who said this was a great place were definitely wrong. I was not expecting a Hilton or even a Super 8 so my expectations weren't high. The owner was nice and service was good but the hotel itself is in... More

I don't usually stay in motels and have experienced some pretty high-end places, but I think I had a realistic expectation of the Maples Motel; just wanted a comfortable and clean place to crash after Cedar Point that was close. We were highly disappointed. We arrived shortly after check-in time, but our room was not ready; no worries, we can... More

My son and I stayed at the Maples as it is very close to Cedar Point (definitely a great coaster amusement park). I loved the notion that this motel was reviewed as a retro kind of family place to stay in Sandusky. The reviews weren't wrong! From the moment you park your car, check in and then check out the...

Enen with leaving the park early we were running close to the 10:00 check in time. Calling ahead I told the answering machine we were on our way and should arrive before check-in time. I also told the machine we were 4 people for 2 beds instead of 2 people for 2 beds. I mean 2 beds are 2 beds... More

This is my second time staying at the Maples motel. Last year I found it via tripadvisor and took a chance. The Maples is a small family run hotel. The rooms are small and clean. The location to Cedar Point is great about 7 minutes from the park (and through the lightly populated back road in Sandusky). Steve owns the... More

Let me start off by saying that I love staying in Mom and Pop motels. This is the way people used to travel before we became so impatient and demanding. Places like this provide what a sterile, boring, cookie cutter chain cannot. Maples is a cute, clean, charming motel tucked under huge maple trees on the main road that leads... More

My 16-year-old son and I spent one night here while visiting Cedar Point. After driving 5 hours from Kentucky, I was thrilled to find our room ready when we arrived at 9:30 a.m. The reviews complaining about the lack of amenities are right. The rooms are old with no frills, so if you're high-maintenance, or if the hotel is the... More

We decided to stay at the Maples Motel based on reviews from Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed! The Maples Motel is a classic drive up style motel that is very well maintained. Steve was extremely accommodating and helpful, despite the fact that we did not have reservations and needed to access our room late in the evening. Our room... More

Maples motel gave us everything we wanted from a motel (and more): a vintage look, clean room & great donuts for breakfast. Steve is such a nice and sweet guy. He was very welcoming and gave us many tips. It was a great experience!
