Thank you for staying with us at South Shore Inn, the five star review and kind words. We are glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay with us on your trip to Cedar Point. We work hard to provide a pleasant guest experience for everyone and i am so glad you noticed all our hard work As we are a family owned, independent hotel, customer satisfaction is a top priority for us, we heavily rely on word of mouth and reviews like yours to compete with all the franchised properties around us. I will certainly share this with everyone, from our Front Desk staff to our Housekeepers. Thank you for helping keep us the number 1 hotel in the area! We appreciate your feedback and hope to see you back again soon. The South Shore Inn Family

We stayed here for a long weekend and were not disappointed. Check-in and check-out procedures were easy, and Kurt was friendly and helpful. We stayed in a suite, with a double room/bathroom, king room/bathroom and a living area/kitchenette. Plenty of space to spread out, which was great. The pool and hot tub area were just as pictured and very nice. Breakfast was still being offered, as much as they could do at this time. It was very good and definitely adequate. It is very close to Cedar Point. If you are looking for all the bells and whistles of a chain hotel, this isn't for you. But if you want clean, comfortable and family-owned, this place is spot-on. We will definitely be back!

Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Rooms were clean, pools was nice, the staff was friendly. Close to all the local attractions. Price was more than fair. You can tell this is a family owned and operated business, they really do care.

We slept here after a trip to Cedar Point and were very happy with our accommodations. We stayed inside the main building, and the room was quiet, clean, and smelled fresh. The staff (Sandy from housekeeping and everyone at the front desk) were there to help anytime you needed it. We also enjoyed the pool and free breakfast. We will definitely book this hotel again in the future.

South Shore is my go to when I am on business. The last 3 years I always run into Sandy. It’s great that she remembers me by name with the amount of people that are in and out of there. The rooms are always cleaned and the property looks well maintained. See you next year Sandy!
