“Good for the price and fantastic location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2007

My boyfriend and I did not decide to go on this trip until about 2 1/2 weeks beforehand when we said hey, let's do a weekend getaway to Cedar Point. Of course, by that time, all of the hotels were booked up and/or very expensive. Normally we wouldn't stay at a Knight's Inn (we're fairly brand loyal), but we couldn't resist it at the price. We also couldn't believe the good reviews that it received on this website.

First impression wasn't good. Pulled into the parking lot after dark. The TINY lobby was packed with people, the clerk at the desk was complaining about all of the spiders, and the one guest looked and acted like he was on crack- he didn't even know what state he was in! He hadn't heard of Cedar Point! The front desk clerk said that my boyfriend's credit card was invalid (we had just used it 20 minutes prior and used it the next day), so we had to put it on another card. There was a screw up with our rates (despite having booked online) which took a few minutes to figure out.

Got to our room, opened the door and was hit with a very strange smell (which we later deduced was some sort of cleaner). Cranked the AC, which eventually lessened the smell.

The room wasn't bad - lots of lighting (always appreciated). The sink was located RIGHT next to the door, so if one person left while the other was at the sink getting ready, you'd better have on clothes or the people outside would get a show!

The bathroom was sort of dingy and the tile was in disrepair in some places. The jacuzzi tub was nice (we didn't realize that the room came with it) but the jets weren't very strong. There was no fan in the bathroom. The toilet seat cover had seen better days.

The furniture was decent and the TV was great (large, flat screen- but not flat panel). Fridge and microwave, table and chairs and a sofa. The king bed was surprisingly comfortable, though the pillows weren't very good. The bedding was also typical cheap hotel bedding.

It was surprisingly quiet for an open hotel (not sure of the technical term- one where every room opens to the outdoors). HOWEVER, there are very active train tracks in front of the hotel, so if you are staying in the front that may bother you.

Parking was sort of tight, there weren't a lot of spaces.

We did not use the pool or hot tub, but neither looked spectacular.

There was a nice playground for families staying with kids.

We were pleasantly surprised by the continental breakfast.

You couldn't ask for a better location to the park- about 1 mile. However, there are not a lot of food options around, so you may have to drive back over to 250 to hit the chains.

Bad first impression, but looking back it was pretty decent for 89.95 per night (AAA discount) for a Fri & Sat stay in August.

The Knights Inn was fine. The room was clean. The continental breakfast was good. The pool itself was clean. My only gripe is that non-hotel guests use it. You don't need a swipe card to get in, and no one monitors who is using it. The staff was extememely friendly and helpful.

Just returned from a trip to Cedar Point. The Knights Inn was an inexpensive hotel close to the Park (about 1 mile away). While the outside could use some updating and general cleaning up, the room was just fine. The bathroom was clean, a bit small, but clean.

The staff was friendly and very helpful (we had a problem with the remote for the TV and they replaced it promptly) They also provided us with additional pillows & towels quickly.

The breakfast was your basic's, cereal, donuts, muffins, bagels etc.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling with children and was looking for a cheaper alternative to some of the hotels in the area.

We booked 4 King Size rooms (2 smoking, 2 non) for our family of 7 adults and two toddlers for July 13-15, 2007. We couldn't have been happier.

The rooms were clean and well furnished. All facilities worked, no disturbances, great breakfasts, very close to Cedar Point.
Highly Recommended.

Feel bad just doing one review. Probably should do four to help get the ratings up!

We loved our 2 day stay at this hotel.

The rate was excellent, the room was very clean including linens, bathroom, etc.

The staff was very friendly and couldn't do enough for you.

There was a nice free continental breakfast each morning in the outside screen enclosed patio.

We loved the bathroom whirlpool bath, which was so relaxing after a long day of walking all over Cedar Point, only a mile away.

There was even a pool, playground, ice machine, vending machines, a workout room, and a washer and dryer.

I would go there again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to anyone who wants a lot for a little bit of money.

I'm happy to be able to share this review.

My stepson and I just came back from Sandusky for the weekend. We stayed Friday night at the Maples Motel down the street, but the trains went by every 15 minutes blaring their horns and kept me up all night. I was miserable. If you're a Light sleeper, DON'T STAY THERE - or get earplugs!!! (Other than that, it was a nice hotel.)

We were SO HAPPY when, due to a cancellation, there was a vacancy Saturday night at the Knights Inn. I knew our experience would HAVE to be better, and it was.

We were put in a non-smoking room at the back, and it was VERY QUIET... I never heard the train OR the airplanes nearby. A few times I heard the neighbors, but it was very muffled...

My stepson and I LOVED the pool and Sauna, and the Contintental Breakfast was WONDERFUL... He had 4 donuts, cereal, orange juice etc... There were all sorts of pastries, donuts, waffles, apple juice, orange juice, cereal, bagels, english muffins - Everything except bacon and eggs!!! The beds were extremely comfortable, and everything smelled fresh.

At $94 per night less AAA Discount, we were VERY PLEASED With this hotel! Thank you, Knights Inn!!!

Very surprised at the cleanliness and accomodations for a cheap hotel so close to Cedar Point. Continental breakfast was wonderful and well worth the price of the room. Would stay again in a heartbeat!
