One of the few motels with rooms still available during a racing weekend, we stumbled onto this place through Tripadvisor. It was a small, very modest, simple place but comfortable enough for a one night stay. The room was a little musty and the furniture was dated but it had all of the amenities: clean linens and towels, adequate mattresses,... More

My chief likes were: the price, having a carport, free wi-fi, having a decent sized refrigerator/freezer in the room, and the friendly desk clerk (I'm guessing the female half of the ownership couple.) My chief dislikes: losing the wi-fi in the middle of the night on both of nights I was there, having the smallest size bar of soap there... More

I came in on my bicycle and they were very nice! I had a reservation for the day booked through Booking.com and for some reason their system said it was for the next day but she accommodated me anyway for that day instead of the next. The rooms were nice and cozy and clean. A bit humid but their air... More

Do not be fooled by their website which they completely spend more money than the repairs/maintenance of this place. What a joke and embarrassment to go to! Cracks in wall, tile, sink, shower broken everywhere and it felt like the bath may fall in during a shower. Dropped off key to check out and the guy was wearing a towell... More

My father and I rolled in here late at night weary and exhausted. The lady from East India who checked us in was very pleasant:-). The room was VERY clean. It had a refrigerator, 32 inch flat screen tv, microwave and small coffee maker (which I don't use, I don't drink coffee). Though to some it might seem basic and... More

We almost went with a hotel that cost twice as much and I'm very glad we didn't! The motel room was VERY clean, cleaner than many nice hotels I've stayed in. The bathroom was remodeled and the bed was very comfortable. The motel doesn't look special from the outside but I promise it's well worth staying here - locally- and... More

I started to smile as soon as I pulled in: It reminded me of the motels my family would stop in on vacations 50+ years ago. The motel is in the bungalow style - just one story, no hallways, and the rooms all face out to a courtyard. Each room has its own open garage, which was wonderful, because it... More

My son and his friends took off for a two day stay in the Sandusky area. Despite my warning that it would be very difficult to find a hotel room in their price range near Cedar Point they thought they would find something. Around 11 p.m. on a Saturday night I called them and they only found a hotel for... More
