Good hotel if you don't want to pay expensive prices for other surrounding hotels. It is an older hotel, but it was very clean. One of the things we wanted to be sure we had was wifi, which the hotel has, but it had poor reception in the room we were originally given at the back of the hotel. The...

Never again will I stay here. We stayed for two nights and it was rough. The beds were small, couldn't get any of their free wifi in our room, the cable kept going out, the showers are not meant for tall people. Heck I'm 5'3 and my head hit the shower head. It definitely was hard to relax after a...

Older place. Clean and ok. Not top level, but good for overnight. Individual garage for each car is nice. Not next to hwy 80 and further in town. Each unit has a refrigerator with a freezer. Beds are comfortable. Quiet area and easy to get a good night sleep.

We booked this room because everything around Cedar point is extremely expensive and we were trying to go on a budget. Don't expect the world because this is a motel but it is a great place to just get a good night sleep. The only real downfall was that the room smelled like smoke but I figure that's a given...

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,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

“Pay $5 extra for the room with the king bed. Bigger room, bigger bed, I think $5 was worth it. Rooms with car ports are nice too.”
