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

We went to Sandusky looking for a nite life area of activity. Pubs , eateries, clubs. Not impressed at all. The Budget Host Inn was not what I expected. I asked yo see a room first. 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

Had an enjoyable overnight stay on our Cedar Point trip. Understand that you're not getting a Hilton but for $65 a night it was a great deal. Clean rooms, friendly and accommodating staff, and a nice outdoor pool. The only thing that would have made this a better stay is if the WiFi could be accessed from your room and... More

The price was much lower than other local accommodations, so we were wary. We ended up with a clean, quiet room and a good night's sleep. No frills except for the simple, continental breakfast. For the price, we would book this again.

We recently stayed for a short trip to the lakes. We stayed Monday thru Wednesday nights. The rooms were clean, fresh towels and wash cloths. The decor is dated, but that's no big deal! The pool was clean and refreshing. We were given an end room near the stairwell due to traveling with a baby. Noise was no issue. The... More

We booked a room for the RunandRide weekend at Cedar Point. We slept fine there, but overall the room / property felt dingy. The first room we were given was very smoky smelling. The front desk reassigned us to the room next door and told me that the original room was next to a smoking room. The second room also... More
