The Place was OK for the money. Room was clean. The best part was that it was very close to Cedar Point. The breakfast is only mini doughnuts and coffee. The worse part was that the staff (mostly the front desk clerk) was EXTREMLY rude. besides not even being able to say good morning to any guest that came by... More

The staff was very nice and helpful and it was in a great location but not sure we would stay again. The foul odor (in ALL 3 of our rooms) was so off putting and the carpets, floors and counters were very dirty. The location was good if you want to go to Cedar point and not drive home the... More

We stayed at a horrible place a month before that smelled like urine and decided to spend a little more on Magnuson. While it wasn't fancy, it was clean and very comfortable. The pool area is excellent and we retreated from scorching cedar point sun in afternoon for a break at the pool. (it was heaven!) They don't include breakfast... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and believe me if there was another hotel to get into I would have left ASAP. This by far is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. It was disgustingly filthy. There is no way they clean the rooms. Couldn't even shower because it was so dirty. Now thats bad! The cleaning service... More

Good sized rooms, attractively priced. And that's it. The hotel is really dated, not maintained well. Dingy carpets. The bar in the lobby was way too loud to even hope to get a good night's rest. Whatever cleaner is used smells corrosive. Don't recommend.

Spent two nights here for a trip to Cedar Point (July 14-16). The hotel is a former Days Inn and even though our room showed some age it was still clean, comfortable and very affordable. It was everything we needed for a theme park stay, a decent place to shower and sleep lol. The hotel is only a couple miles... More

Well for the expensive price, the bed was lumpy! And why .. Why in the world do they let guests smoke in their rooms? I'm a smoker and it was disgusting and stinky to walk a certain hallway in this hotel. Breakfast was good, they know how to make good coffee too. I'll never spend that much money again for... More
