I stayed here with my almost 8 month old daughter for three nights while visiting family. It is always a challenge to find a cheap place to stay when visiting my grandma in Sandusky. I decided to try Maples based on the reviews. It's not bad, but not awesome. The pool and grounds are beautiful. We were not able to... More

We found ourselves at Cedar Point and decided to stay over night. We called the Maples at 11 AM and they had rooms and let us check in immediately. The rooms are clean and close to the park. The hotel isn't anything fancy, but it's perfect for sleeping after a long day riding coasters. The location is excellent! The staff... More

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.
