“Nice hotel , there is room for improvements”
Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at king suites, can accommodate 6. , nicely designed , good for family of 6 . Morning breakfast is okay
with many choices but lack quality. If they can improve it a little bit and extend Breakfast time to 1030, it will be better for families with small kids.. Rooms are clean but I had to go down for soap-towels - supplies etc and they always were accommodating .my phone wasn't workin, I called from my brothers room for housekeeping , nobody picked up the phone so I went down to get supplies couple of time . Water park is nicely supervised and clean. Kids liked the slide and water basket ball hoops, it's not very big and about 1/4 th the size of great wolf lodge . It is good place to spend couple of hours. Front desk and resturaunt staff are very nice
Overall good experience. Won't mind coming here again but price has to be competitive

We just came back from the Maui Sands! It was a fantastic stay! The kids had there own room with tv and the adults had their king bed! The waterpark was so clean and Kevin the lifeguard was funny and made sure everybody was safe! I was surprised to see so many lifeguards! We stay at GWL several times, however Maui sands is much nicer! We used the waterpark just for one day, since we went to six flags for 2 days and the location was perfect! 5 minute drive and restaurants and many shops just across the road! The breakfast was included and it was delicious ! This resort is very, very clean and check in and out was fast! The staff is very polite and goes out of their way! We will be back for sure!

We went here for a soccer tournament in the beginning of June. The water park wasn't too busy even during the evenings. The rooms were spacious especially for the price. Plenty of room for a family of 4 even had room for two more if we needed it. I really like the soft foam bottoms in the water park. Many places have hard plastic or concrete bottoms for their pools and lazy rivers. All the water park areas were soft and didn't hurt to walk around. The lobby area was spacious enough for us to sit around with friends and talk the evening away. The free breakfast was unexpected and good especially for the amount of choices we had.

Room Tip: I know there are different buildings. Not sure if all the buildings have the same rooms. We stayed...

i used hotwire to get a hotel in sandusky, and chose the highest ranking. i believe this was either a 3.0 or 3.5 star ranked hotel. i guess beggers can't be choosers, the hotel was okay. room furnishings were mediocre, and our room was right outside parking, and we were subject to many cars' horns when people were locking their cars. the front desk staff were very friendly. we did not try the water park, or the complimentary hot breakfast.

My family and I had a great time! The staff was very friendly, and the room was very clean. The kids loved the water park, which was a bit smaller and much less crowded then other places we have been..
low prize high quality,
staff was very helpful
water is warm in the waterpark. Overall it was a great experience

Being a single mom of 4 small kids (8,7,4,2) it hard to find affordable place to stay and entertain all my kids. This place did it!! We had a great time at the waterpark and the lifeguards we AMAZING. They helped me with my 2 younger children and I completely trusted them watching my older children in the bigger pools. One lady lifeguard even jumped back into the pool to save my sons spiderman goggles after they had closed. She saved the day. The smaller playground area was perfect for the 4 and 2 year olds also. The crazy slides and spraying water entertained the 4 yr old and my 2 yr old who has a fear of water also had a great time jumping in the puddles surrounding the playground. The room we stayed in was perfect the microwave and fridge really helped keep food cost down. Can't wait to come back!!!!

We stayed two nights at the hotel but, we did not go to the indoor waterpark. I found this hotel online for $36.00 a night! When we arrived the guy in front of us in line was quoted $79.00. Still a great deal. We had a good size room with a king bed in one room and a small room that had two sets of bunk beds in it. All was good until you close the door to the large bedroom. The air conditioner is in there and when you shut the door the rest of the room gets very hot! One kid ended up in our room on the floor because of the heat in the room with bunk beds and it was only 65 degress that night. The signs said the waterpark was $39.99 each but, we were offered passes for $20 a person. We still didn't go. It looked very small and it didn't look like there were would be much for the adults to do. Clean rooms and common areas. Very nice continental breakfast. Would stay again!
