“HalloWeekends at Breakers Express”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Breakers Express is super convenient to Cedar Point, and they have some excellent deals for park entry. Staying there for our HalloWeekends trip this past September, with the deals they had available—including complimentary Friday night entry—was definitely a no brainer.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Breakers Express is EXTREMELY convenient to Cedar Point (10 minute drive, tops). It's an excellent value because it's much less than staying at their other properties and only slightly more than staying at other 2 star places in the area. But, we earned the money back because tickets are $34 while they're $45 online and $55 at the gate. This includes one hour early entry, which is invaluable on a weekend (Get there at least 30 minutes before early entry to get good parking and a spot in line to get through the gate). Although not advertised on the website, we we given a FREE parking pass ($15). We purchased the most basic package; the "breakfast included" option is $10 more and includes vouchers for breakfast at Dairy Queen. There's a McDonald's down the street, or eating our own breakfast seemed a better option, which I recommend.

The rooms are basic (no fridge, but include a coffee maker) and dated, but I found them clean and tidy. Towels are scratchy and the room smelled a bit musty, probably due to the air conditioning and humidity. The service was great. The one problem we had was we were missing the TV remote. One quick call to the front desk, and no questions asked they brought us a new one, and the attendant even tested it to make sure it worked. I appreciated the curtains blocked out the light really well at night.

Tips: If arriving on a Friday or Saturday, try to get there a little before the 4PM check-in time, because the lines are long. If you need to purchase tickets, do it while you're at the desk.

Bottom Line: Basic rooms, great value with the discounts, helpful staff. It's worth the money for those going to Cedar Point.

We stayed here in October 2012. It's convenient as far as the location to Cedar Point. The rooms are decent. It's a lot cheaper than the other Cedar Point hotels. I would rather stay at hotel Breakers, but sometimes I don't want to spend $250 to stay there, so I stay here instead. I would go back here again.

We have stayed here many times and we find it perfect for our trip to Cedar Point. It is reasonably priced, clean and comfortable. Very convenient to drive to Cedar Point and there are a few restaurants within walking distance as well. We will plan to stay there again on our next visit.

Nice that the coffeemakers in the room now. Nice room. Clean-plenty of towels and extra pillows.
SO Close to Cedar Point...extremely convenient location. Easy check-in/check-out. Would definitely re-visit and recommend. It works for what it's there for- a pleasant place to rest.

We visited the 2nd week in September & you truly can't get a better hotel and Cedar Point experience for less money. What we paid for 2 days for the hotel and tickets to the park was unbelieveably cheap especially considering it was also the start of their Halloweekends, giving us even more for our money. Note: I read some of the complaints and I would just say, this isn't the Ritz, it's their cheapest hotel in their chain and that's so all families can avoid it & get the same perks as someone spending $200 a night. If you're at the park from morning to night you don't need a ton of amenities and if you look at some of the other hotels in the area for the same price believe this is the best deal you are going to get.

Room Tip: It's a room on vacation with other people there is no such thing as a "good" room, you...

This motel is a below average motel. Any phone calls are $0.75 for local calls and long distance is
$1.50 per minute. There is no morning coffee or breakfast snacks in the lobby. The rooms have no frig or microwave. You receive nothing but a room at prices above many 4-star hotels. My advice is DO NOT stay here!!!!
