Maui sands could benefit from a facelift....new carpets, updated HVAC, new mattresses but it was a decent value for the price. The indoor water park was wonderful for children and sports teams looking to have fun between games. I am, however, concerned about the safety of the hotel. While we stayed, I went out with friends and my daughter stayed... More

We stayed at this hotel for our visit to Cedar Point. After looking at tons of hotels, we found this one and couldn't have been happier. This hotel was inexpensive and had great amenities. The hotel did not have an elevator but the room was decent. The breakfast was great - even on a weekday. The waterpark was small, but... More

This is the second time my family has visited here. Both times we stayed in a Family Suite. It was very clean, spacious, and comfortable in the main building. I've read some of the poor reviews and now I know why. This time I reserved a Family Room, which turned out to be a queen with 2 bunk beds. I... More

My wife and 2 15 year old Grandsons stayed in this hotel while visiting to go to Cedar Point. It was one of the more reasonably priced hotels in the area that had a King bed and a bunk bed room for the boys. My wife had concerns about this property because of some bad reviews. What we found was... More

Will never go back. It was like going to the ghetto of water parks. We were kept waiting more than an hour after check in for our room, and when we got in it the beds were half thrown together and just looked and smelled dirty. The water park had peeling and chipping paint. No food was allowed in the... More

So let me first say that I tried to use Groupon for the first time. I wanted to take my kids for their b day to Kalahari waterpark in Sandusky. I searched for Kalahari on the goupon site and it automatically sent me to room type, check in dates etc. Prices were comparable but a bit cheaper and I thought... More

We did the Groupon for our two days in Sandusky. We received the King bed + 2 bunk beds. Upon entering the hotel, the lobby was gorgeous. Once we entered the hallways and elevator, no air conditioning. No biggie though, we aren't sleeping in either. Almost forgot to mention that two elevators were out of order when we checked in....
