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

From beginning to end the best positive experience I could have imagined. We The water park was great. It was absolutely the right size to keep us busy for hours. The arcade was clean, well lit and all the games were working. The room was spacious, no governor on the a/c so room was nice and cool. The refrigerator and... More

Stayed here for 3 days with my family for end of summer vacation. Check in was easy and staff are nice. They have events throughout day for kids. We did the package deal with tickets to amusement park. Very fun. The indoor water park here is nice. Lots of life guards on duty. The outdoor pool needed to be cleaned.... 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

Stayed here this past week in the Flamingo suite with a group of people. The room had two tiny trash cans, stains on the carpet and couch, and one of the sinks was obviously stopped up because the water went down at snail pace. The seating was horrible as well, one small pull out couch and small table with two... More

I stayed here with my family for two nights during a visit to Cedar Point. The staff was very friendly, and common areas clean and well kept. The onsite bakery and restaurants made meals very convenient. I found the prices reasonable as well, a rarity. The noise level was low despite being on the first floor near the water park... More

It was our first time visiting the waterpark. The room was ready, clean and cool when we arrived. The waterpark was well maintained and clean. The staff members were very helpful and friendly. We will definitely return.
