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!

Big room, comfy bed, friendly service, clean enough for me. You get what you pay for and this hotel was half the price of others, I paid $80. The outdoor pool never closes. Walls are thin, air conditioner didn't cool quite enough but it worked. Close to Cedar Rapids Park. Request a fridge (ahead of time) for the extra $5-10... More

The 3 stars is not to say that this is a bad location. There are beds and the TV works great. VERY close to Cedar Point and shopping and dining. Only 30 minutes from ferries to great island locations. Air conditioning worked fine. Wish there was a refrigerator/microwave and that they provided shampoo. Just know that what you save on... More

So, the continental breakfast is decent. And Annette at reception is v. nice and thoughtful. Our room was big - a kitchenette with not one pot, dish or pan. And the freezer was vile. Moldy. Yech. Pool is small and had some leaves and stuff on surface. But otherwise not bad. The sheet barely covered our king mattress and with... More

When the hostess took me over to see the room. I was shocked. Dirty , small , probably 8x10 room size with a toilet... More

Went to stay at the hotel for our trip to cedar point. When we arrived, the staff was friendly. Room was clean, had a TV. I would have given a 5 star rating but, the breakfast was not too great. When getting breakfast the apple juice dispenser did not work nor did the water dispenser. Vary few breakfast selections. We... More

My date and I stayed here for a night after cedar point for $54 + tax. It was a nice room that was cozy and well kept. The staff were very nice and helpful, even when we checked in late at night. The breakfast was fairly decent, impressive for how inexpensive the place stay was. Good place for a rest... More
