The room is pretty nice. Bring an extra trash bag, as the cans are really small and overflow quickly if you are eating/drinking in the room. Also not a lot of room to organize and unpack food or refrigerated items (tiny fridge). We had 6 people in the room for two nights. Bringing snacks, cereal, lunch meat, milk, drinks, etc,... More

Great location and benefits for a trip to Cedar Point! Nice, clean and friendly place to stay. Only thing lacking is a free shuttle to Cedar Point. Would definitely stay here again. Water park is just the right size when you are traveling with small children.

I went here on a long weekend. The water park area is good for any age. There are entertainment options in the evening, and lots of nearby food options. It was clean and comfortable. I didn't combine the trip with a trip to Cedar Point, but will do that in the future. There were also some outdoor activities that I'd... More

I went with 4 other adult women for a cedar point trip during halloweekends and stayed here. TGI Friday's that's connected was amazing. Prices were a little higher, but we ordered the $4 special berry mojito for a drink and it was yummy. The room was clean, even if outdated a bit. Staff was very nice. Every person we came... More

We arrived on Friday September the 19th and left Sunday the 21st. We had to wait in line for over 20 mins to check in. Once in our room we got ready and went to Cedar Point. On our return to the room we turned one of the beds to find blood on the sheet. I called the front desk... More

We just returned from a two night stay at Castaway Bay. We had the Tarpon suite, which was perfect for us and our two young children. The room was a little smaller than I had expected, but still served its purpose. The separate room with the two sets of bunk beds was plenty spacious and had a little desk with... More

After finding an average hotel on Priceline that I intended to book for our trip to Cedar Point, a friend told me about Castaway Bay. I went online and found that with discounted Cedar Point tickets and free parking voucher included it was actually cheaper to stay at Castaway Bay, an indoor waterpark, than a run of the mill hotel...
