The staff was awesome and very helpful. It was a very nice hotel, King suite was awesome and big enough for 5 of us.Loved the pool. The only complaint I have is the sheets sucked. Very nice hotel but they should be able to have sheets that fit on your bed. Couldn't stand that they didn't use fitted sheets, really... More

This place was so expensive and the rooms were not good. I could not believe the quality of the property when I checked in after paying so much. It looked like a motel a teenager would book in Daytona Beach on Spring Break. Definitely not worth the money. It was just old and dirty and I would never stay there... More

It's convenient to the park and water park but it's really expensive and small. For a suite it is really small. Our bathroom was really dirty. There was hair all over the floor and the tub was black. The only plus was our room was ready at 10am

This is a great place to stay if location is most important to you. It is located very close to the lake(note: you can not swim in the lake at this resort)with a beautiful view from the pool. You can easily walk to Cedar Point and the water park. I would rate the accommodations as average to below average (... More

Rooms were clean and hotel was less than a half mile walk to the park. Stayed 2 nights and it oddly felt like being in Florida. The beach behind the hotel was great. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

I chose this hotel because it was on site with the park. The staff was friendly and gladly answered any questions I threw at them. My room was clean and had plenty of towels. It may be a bit pricey compared to staying outside the park (I stayed at the econolodge and altho cheaper I wasn't impressed), but you don't... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle Suites! We have stayed there in the past and will again in the future. The rooms are cleaned and the staff is friendly. The view of the Lake is breathtaking. We also enjoyed the free coffee too!

This is no nicer than any other hotel I have stayed at for half the price. BUT the location inside Cedar Point and the shuttle service and the friendly staff, make the added cost worth it. I would stay here again when going to Cedar Point.

What can I add that hasn't already been mentioned......I'm walking away from this experience feeling extremely ripped off. I've worked in hotels so I get the Sandcastle Suites needs to make as much money as possible during a three month window. Unfortunately, other than the staff and convenience of location, the quality of this hotel will make you feel ripped... More

My three kids, my sister, my nephew and I vacation at Cedar Point every summer. Sandcastle Suites has ample space for us to all stay in the same room, which is important to us. The location is great - we can walk or shuttle to the park easily. Because we spend the large majority of our time at the park... More
