“Great Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Stayed at Breakers Express on two night trip to Cedar Point. Staff is alway friendly although check in takes a little while cause people are buying park tickets at the desk also. Rooms are nothing fancy but clean and rollaway bed make sleeping 5 easy. You have to drive into the park, there is no shuttle but they give you a parking pass with your room. Great prince on discounted tickets makes the stay worth it. Only complaint is the pool closes too early. If you stay at the park until close you can't get back to the hotel in time to jump in and cool off before bed. An extra half hour on the pool would make the place perfect.

We had a great experience at The Breakers Express. The room was basic, but still very nice and clean. We needed a rollaway bed and it was waiting for us in the room. This is a great place to stay when visiting Cedar Point for a few days. Very close to the park, just a quick drive down the causeway. Our discounted three day tickets were a great value, and the free parking at the park saved a lot too. We didn't get to use the pool or hot tub, but they looked nice to cool off or relax at. Lifeguards were on duty all day and into the night. I would recommend Breakers Express to anyone going to Cedar Point.

I recently stayed at the Breakers Express on Weds, June 12th through Fri, June 16th and if your going to Cedar Point this is very affordable for your family. I went to the park 3 days and I saved so much money with a 3 day ride and slide package plus $45 in parking. They have single day tickets fro $34.00 and up to 3 day ride and slide packages. The staff at the hotel was very welcoming and even let us check in extremely early at 8 am when check-in is at 4 pm. The front desk team member was so nice and also remembered us when we came back from the park 2 on Thursday night and went out of her way to tell us she remembered us with a huge smile on her face and made us feel like we were at home. The room was very clean with no issues at all. The housekeeping kept our room very clean and left us cards saying who cleaned our room and if we needed anything to let them know. Check-in and Check-out were very quick less than 3 mins and we were right on our way to the park. You also get 1 hour early access to the park plus there's a pool, gift shop and laundry room :-D I highly recommend this hotel as I stay here every trip I make to Cedar Point!!!

Room Tip: Every room is great to stay in as they are all the same except some are handicap accessible.

Hotel is very basic but great place to stay for your Cedar Point visit. Rooms irons or hair conditionor and no continental breakfast but the discount Cedar Point tickets are the best price you will find and the one hour early entry is worth it.

We stayed 3 nights during the week, and bought 2 day Cedar point ticket packages. The hotel lobby was clean, as was our room. The room was sufficient, but definitely not fancy. No refrigerator or microwave, which was a bummer for us. The mattresses were very "springy" and uncomfortable. With that said, for the money saved by staying here vs. the more expensive and fancier Cedar point hotels made it a decent value. You still get the cheaper ticket rates, free parking, and early entry to the park. We will most likely return here again next year.
