We spent a Saturday night here in conjunction with a day at Cedar Point. We were allowed to check in early which was convienient It's nice to have the option of swimming with more than just a pool and works well that you can also use the water park on Sunday. Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The balcony... More

The rooms were clean. The beds were much better than at the Breakers Express. The rooms did have a weird smell from the ac unit. Skip the breakfast buffet it isn't worth the $12.95 per person. The muffins from the café were overpriced but tasty. The waterpark wasn't very crowded (being that it was the off season). It was small... More

There are more good things than bad things at this hotel. The Waterpark and the Bay views from the rooms are great. The microwave with the USB ports was awesome. My room could have been a little cleaner (just lint in the corners and under bed). But the room service food wasn't very good at all. I ordered from the... More

My family (wife and 2 kids - ages 11 and 13) stayed here while visiting Cedar Point over the weekend. Here are some quick thoughts: 1. We stayed in a Tarpon Bay suite. Nice, basic room with queen bed and 2 sets of bunk beds in separate "room" for kids. More than enough space for our family of 4. Nothing... More

We booked a reservation at this resort a week prior to our stay. Upon arrival the receptionist could not find us in the computer. She just simply stated that and didn't offer any solution (although the money had already come out of our account for the room). She recommended we check out our bank statement and then call back ???!!!... More
