    We've stayed at this hotel a few times before. The room was clean as always. The bed was comfortable. We were in the back hall and there were only a few other residents staying at the time. It took 5-8 minutes of running the sink and bathtub to get hot water to the sink. Could be because there weren't enough... More

    We chose this hotel because it advertised a restaurant and bar on site. Well, both were closed and the place is a dump. The pool is chipping away, the rooms were musty and the hallway was filthy. My grandson was just learning to crawl but there was no way I was putting him down on the floor!

    We stayed here after a long day at Cedar Point. We checked in late only to find our rooms had a heavy musty smell. There was mold on the ceiling. The pillows were not comfortable and you could tell they were heavily used. As for breakfast, not worth it. We left with hungry kids and had to stop somewhere else.... More

    AVOID THIS HOTEL! I don't know how they could get away with false advertising! The hotel photos in their web site are not showing the actual-poor condition of the hotel. The nice beautiful lobby and restaurants in the hotel photos are all closed, dusty and out of business. I don't know how this hotel is allowed to operate. The TV... More

    Thank you for taking the time to rate and review your recent stay with us. Although the ABVI brand is geared toward the budget-conscience consumer, there's no reason to expect anything less than a clean and comfortable stay.

    Totally gross. Room had yuck growing behind the table and the mold smell was horrible. Needs to be inspected by the health department! The carpet was peeling up by the window from the moisture and the barroom was from 1979. Just disgusting! Ugh.

    I'll stick to the facts. There were no signs outside of the hotel and you could not see in the inside of the lobby from outside because of very dark windows. The restaurant inside was being renovated and the lobby very poorly lit. There was a sign saying that the front desk clerk would be right back. The actual hotel... More
