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!

So Cedar Point is on your bucket-list? It should be! The roller coasters are amazing! But getting there can end up costing an arm and a leg so you'll have to think about trimming costs. In comes the Maples Motel, where you can stay within your budget. But you might be thinking what am I going to give up? What... More

My family and I stayed here on our way driving cross country, due to the rave reviews on tripadvisor. Everything I read about was pretty much right on. The little old lady was super sweet, very accommodating, and offered donuts in the morning. What I didn't expect was how much like the Bates Motel it actually resembled. The rooms were... More

This is my third review for the Maples as we have been coming here for years when we make our annual Cedar Point trip. We have fallen in love with this motel and the owners Joan and Steve! We knew this trip this summer would be difficult as Joan passed away during the winter. We weren't sure if things would... More

Arrived early about 8:30 a.m. opening day and my room was ready. Steve Faber and the Faber family make you feel absolutely like you are family. My room was clean, comfortable beds, and just an all around great room. You have a key ( not computer card) to enter your room. I always stay here when visiting Sandusky, you are... More

An old, kitschy, clean motel. The family that owns it is incredibly friendly and accomodating. For the price, i'm not expecting new carpet and wallpaper. I want a clean bed and shower and air conditioning. It's perfect. Also, we had the same problem with booking as a recent reviewer - messages left with no response. We finally got ahold of... More

We have stayed at this place last year when we visited the area and had an overall decent experience with Steve and his mother (owners). However this year when we decided to come back we called for 3 days prior and could not even get a simple call back to tell us whether we could book a room or not.... More

Absolutely enjoyed my stay at this motel. The Fabers made sure that I had everything I needed to enjoy my stay. Spent an entire week going back and forth to the Great Dane Nationals (GDCA National Specialty Show). The room was neat and clean and even had a nice space to put up my dog crate. It was terrific to... More
