We came here on a Monday night during my daughters spring break. She is a 22 year old lady with autism. She absolutely loved it. There was one water slide in particular that 2 people rode in a raft. We couldn't get her off of that...LOL This is a very nice place. Very clean. The staff were all friendly and courteous. One thing I especially liked was the balcony has a screen covering the opening. What a great idea! A person still could sit and enjoy the balcony, but knowing their children would be safe. More hotels should do this. The Game Room was astounding. Usually you only get 3 or 4 machines, but they had a mass amount. I very much would recommend this place. Great breakfast at the buffet too!

We were unsure how it would go being cheaper than others we looked at but we were really happy with it. The kids loved it. The food prices were a little high but that's everywhere and it was worth it.

I was hesitant to book my family here because of some negative reviews, but I'm glad I didn't listen because we had an awesome time. My 1 and 3 year old enjoyed a lot more of the water park than I thought they would. The whole staff was nice and we enjoyed late night activities like karaoke and the kids dance party. We will be back!

This establishment advertises 84° year round. We froze. The pool area was cold, the waters were cold, the hot tub was broken so it was cold, then the heater in our room barely worked so we were cold in our rooms. No wonder they were offering rooms at a discount. There are too many other options in the area for this bad experience. I expect better Cedar Point!!
