I accidentally reserved the HJ on Milan instead of this one. I had an horrible experience and the room was disgusting! I asked to cancel my reservation and the front desk associate told me no. He charged my account for the whole stay and called the police when I wouldn't leave. When the police arrived they sided with me told... More

Staff were friendly, close to the cedar point park, check in was the quickest I experienced, room was nice clean but a bit old, bath tub had the curtain that did not close fully due to a rail nearly coming off but that didn't bother me, sleep quality was good as the bed was comfortable, clean sheets. Breakfast was simple,... More

Thank you for sharing your comments from your stay. We try to always be friendly and offer a clean, comfortable room. Unfortunately because we are an economy brand we only offer a continental breakfast but it should be fresh. We hope you choose to stay again if you go to cedar point. Have a great summer.

We basically saved over $200 by booking this place, It is simple, a little outdated but clean, Very friendly staff. I was a bit cautious of the other reviews, Although we got everything we were looking for. The room was a nice size for a king bed anyway.

My only complaint is the bathroom is very small. Other than that room was clean and bed was comfy.

This was our first time visiting Ohio and one of our stops was to go to Cedar Point. This Howard Johnson is located directly across from the Cedar Point entry way - great location! The staff was very friendly and accommodating, always had a smile on their face - some of the best customer service we've ever received! They served... More

This hotel was okay, the rooms are small and could use some upgrades. Since it was inexpensive I guess you get what you pay for. I have stayed at other Wyndham hotels which are much better than this one. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

took my family to Cedar Point for 3 days in July 2016. Chose Howard Johnson over other locations due to the longtime reputation associates with the name. Was not disappointed. Knew it was a cheaper location and not to expect much in amenities. Was pleased with the cleanliness and size of the rooms and the politeness and attentiveness of the... More

My wife and I decided to stay here while we where out boating over the weekend. Location is conveniently near the Cedar Point causeway. Check in was quick and simple. The room was kind-of-clean. I noticed food stains over the door, and my wife noticed a "stain" (use your imagination) on the comforter. Beds where more comfortable than what I... More
