The room was smaller then what was shown when we signed up. The water took forever to warm up. The bathroom was so little. The pool was really smal and green.

We went with this hotel not wanting to go with the cheapest option but not wanting to pay top dollar either. I wish we had gone any other way. The room was small, not very clean (found broken glass on floor), sloppily painted, and just kinda felt grimy. Would have been fine with that if we hadn't ended up paying...

Thank you for sharing your comments. We do care what our guests have to say, and learn where we need to improve. We are an economy brand so we don't have all the amenities that some offer but the rooms should be clean. Thanks again and I hope you and your loved ones have a good year. Sincerely, Ruth

Stayed for one night for a Cedar Point stay. Check-in was fast and easy. Unless you're staying at any of the Cedar Point resorts, you can't beat the location of this hotel. It's right at the end of the CP causeway - 5 minute drive from CP. Our room was clean; it was a bit dated, however, for the price,...

This "hotel" was Not what I expected. It was motel quality and I really should have read more reviews. It just felt dirty. If we had not been so exhausted we would have picked another hotel. We didn't even shower there because I would have felt dirtier coming out of the shower! There is a reason it is so much...

I am sorry your stay was less than enjoyable. We are an economy property so things may appear dirty because they are worn but I assure you we check the rooms daily for cleanliness so the room wasn't dirty. I do thank you for sharing your comments and hope you have a nice summer. Sincerely, Ruth
