“GOOD PLACE FOR TOURIST AREA”
Reviewed June 22, 2010

Spent the night here after a busy day at Cedar Point. For a tourist area and changing over quick from the night before, ( you may be able to check in early) paid $110, they did a good job. It is what it is. For a nice place to stay you have to dish it out. If you don't want to pay it take a chance some where else. I'd rather pay it and be comfortable. Clean, smells good, looks good, breakfast good, staff good. 10 minutes to Cedar Point, 3 minutes to Walmart, restaurants and fast food places every where to choose from. Good experience, would stay here anytime, that's what I told my friends. If you have it, spend the money and stay here ! ! !

We booked two Hilton Honors reward rooms here to save some $$ while taking four teenage boys to the nearby Kalahari Water park resort. Our two adjoining rooms were probably sufficient for the minimum usage we made of them, but having stayed in three other Hamptons in the preceding 7 days really made the differences obvious. Briefly stated, the developers of this Hampton must have read every one of the minimum design and furnishing criteria for a Hampton and then just barely met those standards without any upgrades at all. Room size, bathroom size, furnishings, decor and amenities were all about as minimal as I can ever recall in a a Hampton. The tiny bathroom had an external sink area with a very small counter. There was no microwave or fridge in the room and the TV was a smaller standard def picture tube type. The pool area looked decent although we did not use it since we were at the giant water park down the street most of the time. I will say that the front counter staff was exceedingly pleasant and helpful and the breakfast and overall condition and cleanliness were what one would expect from Hampton properties. A reasonable place for a good night sleep. Just don't expect anything special or even average at this one.

The Hampton Inn Sandusky was a good value for the price (about $100.00 per night). The management was attentive even with 9pm check-in. The establishment was clean and well maintained. Free broadband internet access. The breakfast area had a good selection of entrees, on par with competing properties in this class. The room was quiet with 2 double beds for a good nights sleep. Towels were ample. Free cookies upon check-in. Appeared to be family friendly. Fitness equipment was somewhat outdated but I doubt it would be worth investing in new equipment since I didn't sense the clientele were fitness enthusiasts. I would chose this property again while visiting Sandusky. In addition, it is only a few hundred yards from the historic Perkins Cemetery and not far from Plum Brook for those interested in attractions other than Cedar Point. Also it is only few miles to downtown Sandusky with its historic waterfront, limestone architecture, parks, and distinctive German heritage.

front desk could have been better person there didn't know what they were doing. this is the second time. I heard they can't keep help because of the general manager. Room was a bit dirty,could have been inspected better. Mold in the bathroom. Beds were double, who has these anymore. I could tell this wasn't an original Hampton. Thought the breakfast woman a bit overbearing and a little mean. Too nosy. Food was ok. Wayyyy overpriced. The breakers express at Cedar point is a better deal. They offer discount tickets to Cedar point that are excellent. And you can use the other hotels pools at the point and the beach. You can also get a free parking pass for the point. A way better deal if you r going to cedar point. Save 10 dollars a ticket there. For your money stay there. Hampton had crummy fitness center

I chose this hotel because I had enough reward points for a free stay and it was near Cedar Point. We were only staying there for a place to sleep and eat breakfast between going to CP one day and ten to Kelleys Island the next day.

Overall, the staff were very nice and efficient. The room was clean and had all the usual bathroom amenities and the usual hot/cold free breakfast in the morning. You can tell this was not a hotel built as a Hampton (if you stay in that brand often, you will know what I mean). The room had two double beds (instead of queens), and they do NOT have the usual comfy Hampton beds. The mattresses were quite hard...especially after a long day at the amusement park! They did have the nice duvet and selection of pillows. There was an indoor pool/jacuzzi which was nice. The breakfast room could have been larger (but that is common).

The hotel is at the end of the line of many hotels on route 250, south of the park. It is still only about 10-15 minutes from CP without traffic (we left the park around 7:00pm on a Friday). Plenty of chain restaurants and stores nearby. The area seemed a bit safer/quieter than some of the areas north of there. We drove to Marblehead to catch the car ferry to Kelleys and it took us about 30 minutes or so to get there.

We probably would stay there again, but the price would have been a bit steep for us if we didn't have the reward stay (I think around $180 on weekends during the summer).

We have had some pretty bad experiences with hotels in Sandusky so I was careful to read the reviews on Trip Advisor. I am glad we selected this hotel. It was everything you would expect from a Hampton. The rooms were clean. The staff was helpful. The breakfast buffet was typical. I especially liked that the pool was open till 1 am. When you are busy all day and come back to the hotel to unwind, a pool that closes early is a real downer. The pool area was clean. The kids like the free wi-fi. Check out was super simple. A receipt was slid under our door early in the a.m. Nothing else to take care of! The only thing that was a problem was the double beds. Who even has double beds anymore? An upgrade to queen beds would really help. As we were leaving, the hotels that had bad reviews on Trip Advisor had few, if any cars, in the parking lot. The Hampton was busy, I believe, because of the reviews. What can you say, people want to stay in a clean hotel. Is that to much to ask? Listen up hotels. Read your reviews and make it better. If you clean it .... we will come.

Only paid $99 for a Friday night stay because Cedar Point started it's off-season after Labor day.

This Hampton Inn is about 5 miles closer to Cedar Point (10 minutes away) than the Milan location. After a long day @ CP those extra 5 miles take forever to drive. This Hampton is a little newer too. Has elevator for the 3 floor hotel whereas the Milan location has no elevator. The pool and whirlpool was open until 1 AM.

The free breakfast area was nice and updated. Rooms had old style SD TV. Sink was outside of bathroom, allows for faster preparation time. Floor could have been vacuumed better, found comb on floor which did not belong to us.

Biggest complaint was no refrigerator, would have been a nice addition but I guess that for other Hilton Hotels.

  • Liked — Free Internet & breakfast and late pool option
  • Disliked — no fridge
