man what a craphole, I realize I paid less than $70 but c'mon how is this place part of a franchise? The room smelled so bad we had to go and buy scented candles, febreeze and a plug in air freshener( which we left there for the next poor sap). There is no fridge, microwave, free HBO, hair dryer, iron,... More

We got a great rate for this place with 4 of us only paying $20 a night for our shared room. Hotel staff was very, very friendly both at night and during the day. However the room was dirty with marks in the ceiling, some stains on the sheets, and dead bugs filling up an overhead light in the bathroom.... More

We stopped here as we hoped it was a good place to see Lake Erie and I am sure I read on the internet site it was 0.6 miles from the lake (definitely walking distance.) We arrived to discover this was not the case and Lake Erie was actually a few miles away and definitely not walkable. The staff were... More

We were looking for an affordable option near cedar point for just one night. We were nervous based on the reviews but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Outside doesn't look like much. Pool looks clean. The rooms are not upscale by any stretch but they are clean and perfectly adequate. Carpet and bedspreads appear fairly new. I was relieved... More

Property is clean but very worn and dated. TV and phone were both non functional and the AC unit needed to run flat out to keep the room even moderately cool. The price is attractive for a single night as an alternative to driving after a long day in the park, but for multiple nights there are better options in... More

I didn't have high expectations for this motel, considering the price point. Room was relatively clean, beds were fine and neatly made up. There was a hole in the bathroom wall and for some reason that I do not understand, the towel rack was in the shower. We had to leave the hotel at 6am every morning, so we wanted... More

Staff was Friendly, Breakfast was Good, Rooms were clean, The only Problem was that the Bathtub plug didn't work at all and No Hot Water!!!! Location was excellent close to Cedar Point and everything else! Well lit & big Parking lot, Outdoor pool was warm! Will recommend staying here again in the Future!

We stayed here after a day at Cedar Point. The room was small and certainly dated, but was very clean and didn't have a distinct smell (I'm asthmatic so I'm very sensitive to must, smoke, etc.) I had a very pleasant experience here, the bed was comfortable, there was free HBO and cable, and I didn't hear anything from the...
