I, like a few others, really wanted to love this place and give it a good review. But I can't. After reading some of the positive reviews, I was excited to stay at this "retro" motel, thinking it would be a kick back to the days when we were kids and went to Cedar Point each summer. The positives were... More

We really enjoyed our stay here while visiting ceder point and surrounding areas. Very friendly and accommodating. Being a family of five and on a budget we stayed in room #1. The room was pretty big all three kids had their own beds and mom and dad in our own area with queen size bed and table with 2 chairs.... More

I will agree with most of the other reviews. The owners and the people that run Maples Motel are very friendly and usually go out of their way to help you. However, this was the first time we have been back to Sandusky in four years, and nothing has changed about the motel. It's still very old fashioned, still next... More

We have driven by for years when coming to Sandusky area and the place is always busy. It has a nice pool and is close to many attractions. We decided to stay for two nights Labor Day weekend. First the good - owners are great and location is close to everything in the area. That's where it ends. The trains... More

Owner is wonderful,but a few problems after that. Beds were uncomfortable and need replaced. Walls are less than paper thin. Decent neighbors may make this fact over look able. Ours were terrible. There noise was actually worse than train traffic. Worst part was when I leave a hotel for the day I always leave a light on. Hotel cleaning staff... More

It is difficult to find an affordable place to stay in Sandusky especially in the summer. I stayed here to visit family on a budget. The grounds of the motel are really nice. The pool looks fantastic. However, weather did not cooperate for us to be able to us it. The owner even said the rest of my family were... More

The motel/hotel options in the Sandusky are are quite poor, so the Maples Motel is not a bad option. However, it is not as nice as the reviews in my opinion. On the plus side it is a family motel. There are no sketchy characters hanging around like at the other low budget motels in Sandusky. The pool was quite... More

Super nice owners, clean rooms. Beds are too small for 2 people, and we are not big. We were not informed about the trains and I am a light sleeper, so I was a zombie after 2 nights. I didn't think the trains sounded horns ALL NIGHT every hour or so. We left early even though we had already paid... 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
