“Ok but......”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

Lots of negatives :
-Small waterpark (super small,compared to others in area)
-no indoor pool so the hot tub became the pool which with small kids in it does not work.
- so much chlorine. Which never bothers me but here it burned my eyes just being around it.
- hallways reaked of smoke (but luckily the rooms did not)
-small beds,no elevators(which with a stroller does not work),arcade is pricy and half of the games don't work..
- showers were small, I mean if your over 5feet tall your going to have to scrunch to shower( which you'll need to after being in all that chlorine)
- no water place for little ones. Mine were constantly getting run over by bigger kids who never watch where there going ( and the lifeguards don't bother telling them to stop running either )
- no water slides for smaller kids (under 42inches)

The few positives:
- hotel is right the entrance to cedar point( if that is important to you)
- it's cheap
- the FREE breakfast was very good
-the restaurant attached has good food ( but its a bit pricy)
-bowling alley was nice
-staff was friendly
- waterpark is so small you won't lose you'd kids


All in all we will not be staying here again. If your looking for a waterpark hotel spend the extra money and go to any of the others in the area(kalahari, great wolf, castaway bay). (We actually got bored and went to kalahari for the day , which is amazing !)
If your looking for a cheap hotel next to cedar point but not one of there's this place would do.

Every year we go home to Sandusky to visit my parents for Easter and we always stay at the Rain. We have been coming here for years and we are never disappointed. This pace is like home. We thought about trying one of the bigger water parks in the area this year for a change but the kids threatened us. They look forward to going here every Easter. The rates are reasonable and they have had the same staff forever. In addition to a small water park they also have a really nice bowling alley and restaurant. There is something for everyone at this hotel and is a family fav for us. We'll be back next Easter.

Discovered this place by accident driving back home from visiting my parents. We stopped in Sandusky for a bite to eat at one of the restaurants off the interstate and our waitress recommended this place for a nice place to spend the night with the kids. When we pulled In our first impression was this was a older hotel but it was packed hard to find a place to park, it was a Saturday night. Once we went inside the kids were so excited there is so much to do. This was the perfect stop for kids that had been stuck in a car. They have a small but cute water play area and a really neat bowling alley. Only wished we had got here earlier because so could have spent more time. The next day the kids begged us to stay another night and tried to bribe us with breakfast in bed from the hotels continental breakfast but we had to get on the road. The one draw back was this hotel was noisy lots of kids running around including ours and the rooms were being a remodeled when we there so they were in a semi state of being finished but were clean. Glad we found this place by accident!

We stay at this hotel everytime we're in Sandusky. It's very convenient and very reasonably priced. We were in Sandusky for a women bowling tournament and brought the kids. While we bowled they played in the hotels water park and we all enjoyed the Thirsty Pony Restaurant. This is one of our favorites places to go with the kids. The hotel is older but clean and the staff have all been there for a long time.

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for hours of the hotels water park and lazer tag

I have become a regular at this hotel. They have a very nice, computerized bowling alley that the kids (and adults) love and also has laser tag and a game room. The indoor water slides are clean and well supervised so no worries there with the kids. The Thirsty Pony restaurant/bar has horse betting, great drink and food prices and a cozy atmosphere that we love. I HIGHLY recommend this facility, especially in the winter months because all the fun is under the same roof so you dont have to go outside! Its a close, inexpensive, clean and friendly, fun place to get away for a night or the weekend, WE LOVE IT.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, have been there many times and have never had a bad room.

Ms.Shea upgraded my reservation to a Jacuzzi room because I was a rewards member. The room was very clean and most importantly very quiet. A very relaxing enviorment. Check out was as pleasing and professional. The hot breakfast was awesome... Thanks to everyone.
