This was the best affordable option for the Cedar Point park package. The water park was pretty impressive, my 9 & 11 year old children absolutely enjoyed it, but I don't think it would be that much fun for teenaged children. There were lifeguards everywhere and they were really watching the pools, very safe. I thought the game room was... More

I enjoyed staying here, kind of..... The water park was nice. It was fun. My family enjoyed it but, the overall dirtiness of the room somewhat ruined the trip. There were stains on the walls. One of the beds had a urine stain on the comforter and the mattress, in the same spot. (Yuck!) Beds look as though they are... More

Our stay during spring break was a good one. It was the first time our kids stayed in a hotel and they loved it. It was very family oriented and was priced fairly compared to other local resorts. We will definitely visit again.

It was so nice to have an indoor water park for the kids to enjoy the day before we hit the park. The Cedar Point tickets that came with our package are good for both parks all day, and can be used through the end of the season, allowing to better prepare for potential inclement weather. The staff was kind,... More
