I saw it was $74 a night when I first checked it, then suddenly there were all deals coming from Orbitz and Trip Advisor, I thought someone died or something and as they sliced the room rate by $20 per night! I should have known that was suspicious, but a bargain it was, so cheap I was. That was a... More

Staff was friendly and courteous. I was allowed to check in very late (after CEDAR POINT closed). Pool is small, but okay if only a few people are using it. Room carpet was very dirty, needs deep-cleaned, so bring bedroom slippers. No shampoo or conditioner in bathroom, either. Nice, hot, pulsating shower, though. Nice amenities overall. I stayed Labor Day... More

Stopped through for a night stay before Cedar Point. For the price, it was absolutely perfect. Distance from the park is the exact same as the hugely overpriced Cedar Point Resorts (Castaway Bay, Breakers Express, etc.), but price is phenomenally lower!

Rooms and hallways were not clean...at least to my standards. Also had to pay upfront instead of when checking out...that was weird. Breakfast was very limited so we went to McDonalds instead. plenty of parking, thin walls and close to CP. Pay the extra money and stay at another hotel...Maybe good place to stay if single but not with family.

Left someone else's shampoo to use. Bathroom needed cleaned. Commode had mold growing inside it. Bathtub needed cleaned also. Took a shower and was in water up past ankles,... More

The rooms had dirty bedding and carpets not cleaned for ages. There was a urine smell in room and we slept on sleeping bags. If you had brought a black light, I bet you would run screaming from this place. I had stayed here ten years ago and forgotten. It was gross then as well. We returned a month later... More

We picked this place because of the price and it was only five minutes away from Cedar Point. When we got there at check in time, our room wasn't ready, so we had to wait for ten minutes watching everyone scramble around to get the room ready. The room itself was good, the sheets however were dirty like someone walked... More

Terrible smell our first night there,somewhat old and dirty.carpets didn't look like there had been cleaned in a long time. Only 60 a night though so honestly you get what you pay for. Breakfast wasn't too bad, very basic.

Keep going to the next hotel. Trip Advisor gave it 3.5 stars outta 5. I guess i should of read further. No way is this more than a 2 star stay. Smelled like smoke, burn cig marks on sink, and hair on toilet and in shower. Close to CP but dirty!
