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!

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
