“Bikes bikes bikes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

Stayed during Ohio Bike week. The bikers at this hotel and the one next door really took over during the evening hours. Loud music and reving bikes were abondant the entire weekend. Hotel is still lacking "sprucing up". It is worn down. We started in a big room with a tiny bed and a "whirlpool" bathtub that did not work. Front desk told us we did not have a whirlpool room which was true since the whirlpool did not work. We were in a corner room and asked move due to the bikers. We moved to a second floor room. It had the same size bed (double) but was alot smaller. We were only there to sleep (try anyway) so we made due. Most of the "less expensive" hotels in Sandusky are run down so you sort of get what you pay for, although the rates were higher because of bike week. I cannot recommend this hotel other than it is at the doorstep of Cedar Point. Play, sleep and get out of there.

What a great place to stay after a long day in the amusement park. The room was clean and comfortable. I didn't expect to receive breakfast so it was a nice surprise to find out that it was included. And talk about location! I will definitely stay here again.

I will start by saying I am employed by a large chain hotel, and wasn't expecting much given the reviews the last couple years. However, the hotel is under new management and it shows!! We were pleasently suprised by the cleanliness of the room. The rooms were freshly painted, had new carpet, and fresh clean linens. Our stay was quiet, you could hear the train, but it was no louder than any other noise around a hotel. The next morning I approached the housekeepers outside and thanked them for having such clean rooms, they were more than appreciative of the recognition. This is a seasonal property located directly in front of the Cedar Point entrance, the location is outstanding. I highly suggest giving them a try, as it is a great stay at a great price!!
