This hotel is a dump. I recently did a tour of Ohio (from Brooklyn NYC) from Cleveland to Cedar Point to Cincinnati and all over the Buckeye State and this was the most expensive hotel of our trip including Put-in-Bay lakeside room, downtown Cleveland hotel, Columbus, etc.
Many fans of Cedar Point like to call this "nostalgic", etc. I call this a ripoff. At $300+ for Bon Air section of the hotel I can't believe they have the nerve to charge this amount. Yes, this is all about location and people seem to love the early-one hour access to the park as well. That's about it as far as perks.
The hotel is dated beyond being nostalgic and quaint. It's simply not a good hotel in any regard.
Negatives: AC barely worked, never got cool/cold even on high (maitenance couldn't figure it out either). I could spit harder than the water pressure in the shower. The shower drain didn't work so I was in ankle deep water for my shower. Toilet you had to flush twice for it to function properly. Styrofoam cups in the room?! Really? In 2013 you can't give me a real glass and/or bottle of water. No elevator?! Again, it's 2013. Cedar Point spent $30 million on Gatekeeper one would think an elevator in your own 3-story hotel would be a smart investment and/or they could offer some assistance in helping us with bags to the room. At check in my party clearly had many bags, no one offered any assistance or told us there was no elevator. I was later told it was noted on the website reservation. Very helpful, thanks.
I don't want to go on complaining, but the point is this was really sub-par and can't believe people stay here and give this place good reviews. I simply don't get it. I don't stay at Ritz Carlton's or Four Seasons regularly, I do however expect a shower, toilet, a.c.,etc. to work properly and beds to be comfortable.
Positives: Really the only thing is location which in 20/20 hindsight isn't the that big of a deal. It was so crowded during the hotel hour early entry that we only got on two coasters: Iron Dragon and Raptor (which later in the day had no waits) Gatekeeper had a 30+ minute wait during the hotel guest hour.
I would never stay here again. I would do CP as a day trip from Cleveland next time if I ever return.
