The sandcastle suites at cedar point is not what I expected. I love cedar point but my first stay at sandcastle suites was not as I was hoping. Especially for the price. It's really outdated and run down. When we entered the room For the first time it was covered by an inch of dirt on the floor and all... More

The best aspect of Sandcastle Suites is it's location -- a few minutes walk to the Resorts entrance of Cedar Point and its waterpark, and about a 10 minute walk to Hotel Breakers and its restaurant and active beach. And if anything is too far of a walk, free shuttle service within the resort is available. Also a plus was... More

I took my son and his friend to Cedar Point for my son's 16th birthday. Since I don't do amusement parks, I decided to get a room at the Sandcastle so that they would be in close proximity to the park and I could have my chill time. I couldn't have asked for a better hotel in terms of the... More

There is no question that this hotel is in a stunning location and easy for Soak City. But it was a pricy stay and fell short of the mark in a few places. Firstly awful staff. I know resorts like this rely on seasonal workers but TRAIN YOUR STAFF. I am sure I knew more about the area in one... More

Cons: No safe, Pricey, No Recycling in room, Would rather drive to the entry gates, Pool needs updating, beach is not worth swimming (scattered with seagulls) If you... More

This hotel is nice but just a little to pricey. Located on Cedar Point property right on the lake. Views are nice, pool is nice, rooms are decent but just a little overpriced. Didn't understand why the hallways & elevator was so freaking HOT!!! One perk is that they do have a shuttle service to & from the park which... More

This hotel has a great location which is basically on the tip end of the peninsula. Our first floor room smelled of mold. I am guessing that the first floor gets lots of moisture from the surrounding water. The carpet was new but the mold is probably unfortunately in the walls. The hotel is probably not open all year round... More

Not a very nice place. Would not recommend. Rooms were small and very very old. Very few amenities in hotel. However it did have nice pool and view of the lake. There were lots of bugs all over walls and pool fence covered with bugs and spiders. I would say the rooms were clean.
