This was once probably a real resort. Not that it isn't now, but it is OLD. They have modernized the place but not the core of the place. It is nice to have some authencity, but they should have done a complete overhaul. It was a weekend getaway with my spouse attending a siminar. The dining experience went fine for... More

We made reservations for 4 rooms, paid $100.00 deposit on each room. We checked in and Sawmill raised the rate on three of the rooms by more than $50.00 a night. Sawmill refuses to stand by their reservation rate. We would have stayed elsewhere if we knew the rooms were going to cost more than the reservation rate . I... More

First I'd like to say that I'm glad you were able to enjoy parts of the resort and it's extra activities. Secondly, I'm disappointed to hear that you weren't offered a menu on Sunday for breakfast. I will be forwarding this along to our Food and Beverage Director for the menu option to be available on Sundays, because you're right,... More

This is an older resort. The rooms are not fancy (late 70's style) but clean. Lot's of options for families: pool, golf, nearby amusement park, nature trail. Restaurants and coffee shop reasonably priced. This is not a beachfront resort. You have to walk to the beach, drive and park nearby, or have them transport you there. The staff is courteous...

Thank you for your review and feedback. I'm shocked at the information, or lack of, that you received from the Front Desk staff. The payment for the boat cruise has always been taken care of at the Front Desk, never the boat captain. I will definitely be bringing this up to the Front Desk Manager to ensure that the desk...

Went to this resort as a couples weekend getaway. I have been to this hotel about 12 years ago, so I remember it's former glory. Upon arrival, we were given our keys to our rooms - only to walk into an occupied room! It was awful! We were so embarrassed. The front desk made us come back to the main... More

My family and I stayed here a couple of days this past week. While the hotel is clean it is in need of updating. Also mattresses were horrible. None of us slept well the first day. Thankfully we were exhausted the second day so we got a little more sleep but nothing restful. Would not recommend the Salmon Run restaurant... More

Me and my family stayed here before heading to Cedar Point (just a 5 minute drive from the park). There are many things for the whole family to do at the resort.

Had lunch at the Salmon Run and it was good. We had salmon as well as Lake Erie perch. Both meals were presented well and tasted just as good.

The reviews of Sawmill Creek on TripAdvisor are very accurate . This is a very dated hotel that should be ashamed to call itself a resort. Just because you charge resort rates doesn't make it a resort. I'm just going to cut to the chase, Rooms are old. we stayed in the high end jacuzzi/fireplace suite. The air conditioning was... More
