“Early Cedar Point Entry, Discounted Tickets & Free CP Parking”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

I'd categorize this "resort" as a Holiday Inn with Cedar Point benefits. The ONLY reason we stay here is for early Cedar Point entry, free parking & discounted tickets - the perks are the only justification for high price.
Average bed, pillows, towels... WiFi didn't work In our room area. Sterile and nothing special. Wall paper in our room was coming off the wall. Carpets could used to be cleaned.
Front desk staff is friendly and handles a high volume of guests quite well!!
Fast Pass (short cut ride lines) while quite $$$$ we thought well worth it - especially if ur visiting from far away.

Our room smelled musty, luckily we could open the windows though. They were supposed to have a shuttle to cedar point which they did not. Wi-fi worked for about 10 minutes our entire stay. Pool not really heated. The best part was walking up to our room and having two hotel employees swearing at each other .... Really nice since I was with my kids......

I'm sorry to hear about your experience at the hotel. I apologize for any confusion, but Breakers Express does not offer a shuttle to Cedar Point and we do not advertise one. We are not aware of any issues with the pool or wi-fi, but thank you for letting us know so we can check on them. I hope you were able to speak with a manager while you were at the hotel so we could resolve these issues for you.

We usually stay at the Breakers, but all the rooms were booked, so we tried the Breaker's Express. We still received free parking at Cedar Point, as well as an hour early entrance to the park. Therefore, we went to bed around 10:30 and got up about 7:00 each day. We were basically there to sleep. Besides being a little cheaper than staying on the park grounds, the Express is located within walking distance of DQ and McDonald's, which means you can get a cheap breakfast or late dinner. They have a coffee maker in the room, but I opted to buy Starbucks from the gift shop.

We stayed at Breakers Express for four days while we traveled to Cedar Point. The hotel is a good value, especially with the Cedar Point ticket package, which also includes parking at Cedar Point for the duration of your stay ($15 per day for a car at the park). The room was clean and neat, and was a comfortable place to crash after a busy day out and about. The pool is really nice and a lot of fun. The people working at the hotel are all very friendly and helpful. Additionally, when you stay at the Breakers Express, you are able to utilize the waterpark at Castaway Bay for $10 per person, which is a great value! If you are looking for a good value to go to Cedar Point, I recommend staying at the Breakers Express.

Family of 3 travelled with another family of 4 from 27/07/13-30/07/13
Check in at supper time was smooth and quick. Rooms are average but clean. Our room was 2151 and we didn't really have any issues with noise from ice machine or elevator or people as we were back at the hotel at midnight every night.
We shopped for groceries at Walmart on our arrival date and packed a cooler for lunch both days at the park. This worked so well for the 7 of us. We got a 2 day CP/Soak City pass for $64 each and then did fast passes for the second day. Went to the park an hour early as guests of a CP resort. Great as we could ride 2 big rides before the park opened to all others. We ate lunch out of the cooler at the pavilion located just outside the park and saved a lot of $ as we didn't have to buy meals in the park just snacks. Went back to Breakers Express and had take out Pizza Hut (3 lrg fed all of us for $30) and then back to the park we went.
All in all a good time. Nothing fancy but it was a great vacation.

This hotel is very close to Cedar Point which is why we stayed there. Room smelled a bit musty but we were at the amusement park most of the time. Staying here allows you to get into the park an hour early in the morning which is very nice.

The hotel staff and location were both great. My only irritation was that there was no fridge or microwave in the room. Most hotels offer these, and for the price, I was surprised they were not available. We always travel with a lot of our own food to save on going out to eat. Rooms were very clean and well kept. We never got a chance to use the pool there, but it looked very nice. Staff was very friendly and took care of us well. The early entry to the park, breakfast vouchers at Dairy Queen, and free parking at Cedar Point are big perks for staying here. I definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Sandusky/Cedar Point.
