“Excellent Suite”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We booked two family suites. Wow they were spacious, clean, and comfortable. The service was excellent. We were visiting Cedar Point and didn't intend to use the Waterpark. (It was about 5 miles from Cedar Point.) An employee named Doc introduced himself upon our check in and offered to help us with whatever we needed. The next morning at breakfast came over and spoke to my husband again to see how our stay was going.

Only suggestion is Maui Sands focuses on improving their breakfast. The taste was less than desirable although the presentation of the food was clean.

Definitely we would stay there again while visiting Cedar Point.

Room Tip: Great place to stay if visiting Cedar Point. Close to the park, restaurants, and shopping if you nee...

My husband, teenage daughter, & I have stayed at many different resorts. This place is nothing like a resort. We had one window, which looked out into the hall corridor. There was only one sink/mirror, no closet, & not even a lid for the toilet! The bathroom is very small. The walls are so thin, that you can hear your neighbors conversations. It's located in the middle of a parking lot, with nothing to do, other than use the indoor waterpark or the small arcade room. This place is very over-rated & very over-priced. I would never recommend this facility to anyone.

We haven't had a family vacation in 5 years, one reason why is because it is so hard to find a clean, pleasant, comfortable place to stay. We no longer have to search for a place each year because Maui Sands Resort is our family's permanent vacation spot. It was very clean, the staff was incredible helpful, pleasant and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable while away from home. The hot and cold breakfast was surprisingly good, the beds were comfortable and all the linen was clean and white, we couldn't find not one stain. We stayed an extra day just because we didn't want to leave! We cant wait to return next summer. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Thee in house water park was spectacular! The kids had an amazing time and it was clean!! I didn't want to leave the Jacuzzi, I am seriously considering moving in! One employee, Doc, was very helpful and a joy to have met. His bright smile and big hello everyday was something to look forward to.

Room Tip: We stayed on the fourth floor family suite and have no complaints, quite, clean and a great view. Th...

Just returned from a family vacation and can not find a bad thing to say. The rooms are very clean and family friendly. After traveling in the U.S. and over seas this has to be the nicest staff we have come across. Thanks to Doc and Cassie for handling everything.

Overall a great stay, kids had a blast. Service was great, Doc was awesome, pretty sure his job is to make sure you are smiling. 2 room suites could use a door on the kids room. Why have 2 rooms if there's no door?

Thank you for giving us your feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay! I'm sorry for the confusion that may have occurred. Our Hana Suites have a "hidden door" to separate the adult room and the kids room. We hope that when you return to Sandusky you will choose Maui Sands again. Mahalo!

We brought our 4 teen nephews to this hotel for a 2 night stay in the suite with 2 bunk beds. Our entire stay was wonderful! The staff was welcoming and friendly when we checked in. The location was superb, easy access to a huge variety of places to eat and so close to Cedar Point. We loved the indoor water park! We spent hours inside the park, relaxing and having fun. It was well staffed with many lifeguards that were friendly and engaging to the visitors.

The free breakfast was well stocked with a large variety of items, both hot and cold, which was helpful on the budget.

There is also a large arcade at the hotel that our nephews loved.

I would recommend this hotel highly to anyone!

Room Tip: The suites face out to the water park and were incredibly quiet!

Casey met us at the check-in desk with a friendly smile and helpful information about the local area. The room was clean and comfortable, with a separate sleeping area for up to four kids. Our room(4319) overlooked the inside waterpark...from the main bedroom window. The waterpark was clean, very good size, and well supervised by staff. A free breakfast was offered from 7-9:30am. A grill and pizza area offered other foods until 11pm. Applebee's restaurant is within walking distance. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi, a game room, business center, fitness center, and an adult lounge. The purpose of our trip to the Sandusky area was to visit Cedar Point. The bonus? Maui Sands was less than 15 minutes from the park. Would definitley stay here again!
