4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Booked the room on-line for a day at Cedar Point, upon arriving to the hotel I questioned my choice, BUT after check-in the rooms are very nice and the staff was extremely friendly.

The continental breakfast is one of the best that I have had ever.

I would have no hesitations booking a room at this hotel in the future.

This location is cheaper and close by Cedar Point Amusement Park (voted #1 in the world for more than a decade). It is less expensive than the Cedar Point properties. It has the bonus of a varied breakfast. The staff has always been very helpful. Our door lock battery "went out" and being close to the lobby, the clerk was able to take care of our situation quickly and easily.

Room Tip: We've found that the rooms closest to the lobby get the best attention because you're close...

I stayed at the Comfort Inn Maingate hotel for a wedding in September.

The hotel's location was of top priority and met my needs. The hotel was less than a mile from the wedding reception and a 2 minute walk to the wedding after party at a bar/bowling alley.

I stayed in a double bed (2) room on the second floor. Note, all rooms have outside facing doors. The room was sufficient for my needs and exceeded my lower set expectations.

The breakfast in the morning was good and free.
At checkout, I was offered a $20 rebate on my already discounted room (choice privileges). The staff and members of Comfort Inn were helpful to ensure my $20 dollar rebate was processed.

Great for a place close to Cedar Point. All the staff were friendly. We were able to check in early and put our things in the room and go for a partial day @ Cedar Point. The room was neat and clean. Food choice was more than adequate for continental breakfast. No problems.

We had a great experience with our recent stay at the Comfort Inn Maingate. The room and beds were a little small but our room was neat and clean. The staff, from the front desk clerk to the maid service, were so friendly and helpful. I would also like to mention the delicious breakfast. Many items to choose from and everything was at the appropriate temperature. The lady that prepared the breakfast was so polite and cheerful! The breakfast area was clean and food was kept full at all times and it was very busy!! Thank you to all the staff and we will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family!!

The staff at the Comfort Inn Maingate is wonderful. They were really nice and helpful. We asked to have 2 rooms attached and they let us check in early before going to Cedar Point. The rooms are o.k. They are not dirty, but bathrooms could be updated. It was nice having a continental breakfast, but the hot food was not that great. The kids were excited about swimming in the pool, but the water was cold (even on a hot day). The staff was very good about supplying towels. I have absolutely no complaints about the staff.

I booked a last minute trip to Cedar Point over Labor day weekend. I had heard a lot about the hotels in the actual park-and looked into staying there-the prices were astronomical. Over $500 for a very basic room for two nights. I quickly decided staying in the park was not an option. I have had a bad experience with some other "maingate" hotels, notably one outside of Disney world in Florida. This hotel far exceeded my expectations in every way. It was clean, recently updated, and comfortable. I was very happy with the front desk staff-the woman I spoke with was very nice. The free breakfast was busy with other park go-ers but I was pleased with that as well. I would definitely recommend this hotel to keep your cedar point trip within a reasonable budget.
