“Not worth the price”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

We stayed there for a wedding and the first room we went into the toilet was broke and was running. I called and we were given another room. The beds are wore out and only double beds. The TV was an old one and the rooms are old and the outlets are few. The odor outside our room smelled like sewer. There was a buffet for breakfast which was nice and the staff was accommodating for large group. There was another group that stayed at another hotel which was much nicer.

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

This is a dirty, run down and tired motel 6 on steroids. The carpeting smells of mildew and is stained and dirty. The hallways smelled and the room (which was an upgraded king suite) is simply a room with an old green couch. For the money, this is a huge disappointment. If you don't care about clean rooms, comfortable beds and furniture from the last decade or so, this is the spot or you.

Room Tip: If you would like a clean, comfortable and well appointed room, make sure you ask directions to anot...

I traveled for the Rev3 event. After reading the horrific reviews of hotels in he park, we chose this as it had better reviews. It is reminiscent of a Holiday Inn back inn the 1970's. it smells terrible, not sure what the odor is! An overflowing toilet, possible mold? The carpet (shag, yes shag carpet) in the room is no fashion statement. Old, stained and dirty, it really was disgusting. The hotel need to be totally remodeled. I would never stay here again, ever.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else if you want a good room. We had the cream of the crap and it was terrible.

Rooms were dirty, smelled like mildew and could use some updating. I think for $150 a night they could clean the place up and do some updating. The grounds looked very good . The staff at the front desk were very polite and nice. I would recommend staying somewhere else.

Had a great time at the resort with the kids all 12 or over. Spent one day at cedar point that was a 5 minute drive. Husband golfed on a very nice course. Had dinner at restaurant that was pretty good. Overall not fancy but a good place to stay near cedar point and kalahari. Nice outdoor pool area also. Could use some upgrades to the indoor pool.

We stayed here while attending a wedding event. The location is great. The resort offers many things....at a steep price. For $175 per night one would expect above all at least a clean room. Not so much. Spider webs, stains on the floors, bathroom mirrors with big black spots, and a mildew smell. I'm not usually one to freak out about a hotel room, but this one left me not wanting to take my shoes off. In short the resort is in need of major updating and maintenance. Several budget hotel chains do a better job at updating. Knowing the area and what it has to offer I can say that there are a number of hotels/golf courses in the immediate vicinity that are a much better value. This place would be worth more than it's price tag if they would invest back into the facilities. I won't be staying here again unless that happens.

Room Tip: Double rooms only have full size beds, not even queens.

Single mom, two kids; worked out very well for us. Weary travelers arrived at 6:00pm. Nice friendly Staff @ check-in. Our first room had a funky smell so we asked to be moved. Chris at front desk was very accommodating. Overall clean, safe and comfortable. Could use updating and refurbishing. We stayed two nights and our trip was centered around CedarPoint Amusement Park. This was the most affordable place to stay near the park. Sunseekers Beach and Marina area are beautiful and clean. We left a pillow from home behind and when I called, they found it and promptly mailed it back to us... very accommodating! Only down side was noise at night. Partygoers were loud at the bar and the train traffic nearby was really loud during the night... train whistles going off all night. Luckily we had A/C running in our room and were exhausted so it did not keep me up, but something to note for next time(earplugs).
