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

Maybe it was our room (#8), or maybe I'm too picky, but the only thing that I can rate this a 5 on is the pool. The rooms are cheap, so I knew going in that they would not be the best. The wallpaper was in terrible shape and dirty. The American Pickers would have loved the shower faucet as... More

We recently spent a weekend at The Maples Motel. This was the third year for us to stay there. There were 6 people this year and we had a wonderful time. From the moment that we booked our stay until we left, it was nothing but perfect. The other couples were amazed at the hospitality we were given. Jo &... More

I had to stay in Sandusky when I took my daughter to Cedar Point to work for the summer. I didn't want to spend a fortune to stay the night, so I checked TripAdvisor for hotels in the area. And I found this WONDERFUL gem of a place. I can only speak for my room but it was a wonderful... More

I absolutely love the Maples. It is my favorite place to stay when I stay near Cedar Point. I tend to spend more time relaxing at the hotel, taking in the beautiful scenery and the chirping birds than I do at the park when I'm here. I only live an hour and 20 minutes or so from Sandusky, but I... More
