“Clean, reasonable place to stay!”
Reviewed June 18, 2009

We stayed here for 3 nights while going to Cedar Point, I was a little iffy at first but this hotel was clean and very close to Cedar Point. We stayed with friends and both rooms were clean, our room was a bit musty/smokey but maybe because the room had not been used much lately. It smelled lots better after a day or so..... The beds were nice, the bathroom clean and recently remodeled. The breakfast, while not much was ok! Bagels, english muffins, donuts and coffee/juice.

I usually don’t write reviews but this experience warranted a review. My family and I stayed at this location during the opening weekend of Cedar Point 2009. I will start with the one and only positive. This is a great location in relation to Cedar Point. The hotel is almost at the park’s entrance. End of the positive. This place reminded me of a crack house only worse. The rooms are small, smelly and have the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept in. You can hear every move made in the room four doors down or the footsteps of each person walking by. When the pool is open you couldn’t pay me to take a dip in that cesspool. I’m not sure how they can call the continental breakfast food. There were four items available. Hostess doughnuts & cinnamon rolls, English muffins, & stale mini bagels. That’s it noting more, McD’s actually has a better breakfast than this dump. I’m sure the other positive reviews must be employees/owners. Save yourself and get the Hampton Inn or similar just a few blocks down the road. Guess this place lives up to the old saying “you get what you pay for”.

If you are looking for a great place to stay near Cedar Point that will not break your budget, this is it.

Stayed over opening weekend in May. Staff is very friendly and helpful, housekeeping was very generous with extra amenities for room, breakfast was just right, and price was right.

The distance to the park was the best aspect. I would recommend this hotel for a great stay when visiting Cedar Point.

We stayed here for two nights during our Cedar Point trip. I thought it was a cheap place to stay and very close to the amusement park. It's not the greatest hotel, but it sure had a good price!

This motel over the years has always been a bit of an unknown bargain for CP visitors...good basic, very clean accommodations at fantastic prices. This EconoLodge (not the one on Milan Road) is now even better with significant upgrade investments: new breakfast area (six tables), computer station, (new) queen beds, ovehauled pool area, Showtime/expanded cable, etc.

The staff, and I mean the whole staff...desk clerks to housekeepers, is VERY friendly. They take pride in their work. A new manager/owner is in charge and he's really led the way!

Breakfast is limited to cinnamon buns, two types of donut hole-donusts, bagels, english muffins, apple/orange juice and coffee, but it is more than enough and well-attended to.

We stayed over the last weekend of the fall CP season (i.e. Halloween) at CP, Oct 31 to Nov 2 thus providing a great "test" as to whether the service and property was kept up.
Passed with flying colors!!

We haven't been to Cedar Point in a few years...so after reading the reviews, we went with this place. We just returned from a 2 night stay. An unfriendly person checked us in. We got 2 connecting rooms. It was extremely damp and muggy, and smelled of mold and mildew. We broke out the Lysol wipes and spray to clean both rooms. Housekeeping did a poor job. They did not pick-up our dirty towels and only left 1 clean towel for a family of 3. I recommend getting a room on the 2nd floor.... After a long day at Cedar Point, we wanted to come back and get a good night's sleep..NOT. People in the room above us stomp and stomp on the floor until around 2:00am in the morning. We also heard the train thru out the night which is located behind the hotel. Upon checking out, I had to ask for a receipt....They wasn't even going to give up one without us asking.....hmmmmm, alittle strange. So, for the money it was okay...but do you and your family a favor....stay somewhere else. Pay alittle more and stay at a better hotel chain. We will return next year but not at Econo Lodge Cedar Point.

Having looked forward for years to coming to Cedar Point from the UK, i was slightly worried by one review. Luckily i decided to ignore it! Our room was very comfortable and clean and plenty of room for the 4 of us. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We hadn't expected breakfast to be included so the chance to grab a quick coffee, juice and toasted muffin before a long day in the park was an added bonus. We all thought we had great value for money for our stay and would love to do it again but as it's a bit far for us we'd just like to say thanks for adding a special memory to our fantastic theme park holiday in Ohio.
