We have stayed at this location several times and have always had a good visit. The pool and hot-tub are awesome! The rooms are nice, but the last time we stayed the wi-fi wasn't working! We stayed 3 nights, so that was a pain. It's not a 5 star hotel, but it's good for the price. Also, the hotel restaurant... More

Service was excellent, staff was helpful and the rooms were immaculate! Their restaurant had great food. It is family owned and I believe they said they are on their 5th generation and truly cared about your experience at their hotel. We will always choose to stay here when we go through Sandusky.

This Motel is situated is a close proximity to Cedar Point, about 10 minutes drive from Cedar Point Amusement Park. The room we reserved, was more like an apartment with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, 2 bathrooms and living room. This part was unexpected and worked out perfectly for our family needs. There is a laundry room with washer and drier, at... More

Just a wonderful relaxing visit to this hotel. Awesome jacuzzi suite, excellent service from the restaurant. Made the reservation with Lorraine, and she actually brought items to our room, and then when we went to dinner, she actually cooked the food!! She was just awesome, and went out of her way for anything that we needed.

This hotel is very conveniently located near Cedar Point. Although it isn't anything spectacular, it is certainly adequate for a weekend stay. The receptionist was friendly, and was very informative. The hotel room itself was clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub on the grounds. The only complaints we have are in regards to the restaurant/bar.... More

I visit Sandusky at least once a year to get my Cedar Point fix and have stayed at various places in the area. My recent stay at the South Shore Inn truly surprised me in the best way. I'm guessing not all the rooms are the same, but I can certainly share my experience. The hotel itself is a two-story... More

The property is close to Cedar Point, but is is need of cleaning and updating. The carpet and chairs were stained horribly -- I refused to go barefoot in the room, and slept on top of the bedspread. The bathroom lock did not work properly -- it was loose and half-dangling the entire stay. The wi-fi connection never did connect... More
