Howard Johnson Inn - Sandusky Park N. Entrance
Ranked #25 of 35 Hotels in Sandusky
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Great price but I have to say... the rooms did NOT look like the pictures from booking.com.
There was hair on the bathroom door molding, peeling paint in the bathtub, scummy fuzz on the grout on the bathroom floor.

Bedding and towels seemed clean but all fixtures were really outdated... I guess you get what you pay for at $45/night.

Light and dark green paint was very 80's, Old style TV, dresser and table and chairs. Check in/out was easy and it is close to Cedar Point... don't expect to make a left turn out of the parking lot, ever! Mattress was so, so... my hips hurt after a few hours.

Location is great. Hotel is basic. Bathroom could use some updating. I don't like the rooms that face the fence and you can not park in front of. But again, it was inexpensive and location is great for Cedar Point.

Pros: 2 minutes from cedar point and the Thirsty Pony is just across the street and has good food and drinks. The hotel's continental breakfast had delicious/fresh donuts and the usual oatmeal/cereal deal. The room was also CHEAP! :)

Cons: Our room smelled funny, but it was doable for the night. After cedar point we were exhausted and we slept well.
