We stayed two nights at the castaway bay in Sandusky and It was what I expected. Two double queen beds flat screen tv, Clean room, the beds were ok, pillows seem to be a little worn and flat. Bath room clean, shower was nice and strong. Overall this place is a nice stay if your taking the kids. Also the good thing about staying here is everything you get in the cedar point package. You get tickets to cedar point with a parking pass and early entry into the park. Also you get access into soak city and access into castaway bays water park, and you and the kids get to eat at the Buffett. When I go back to cedar point, me and the fam is staying here again.

We have never been to Cedar Point so we researched hotels nearby with more to offer than a room. We found an indoor water park that looked very interesting at Castaway Bay. Prices were good and the accommodations that we needed for 6 people were available. We booked it and used the option to pay in installments.
When we got there, everything was ready and we went straight to our room. We were very pleased with that and the hotel staff. The water park was amazing fun and was well staffed with lifeguards. Kids and adults all had a great time there.
Cedar Point is just around the corner about a mile away and it, too was a great way to spend our day. We used the indoor park again that evening and finished our last day at the CP water park.
So happy that we decided to spend our time the way that we did! oh yeah, breakfast buffet is very very good!

Room Tip: we had 4 adults and 2 kids the flamingo suite was perfect for us 2 bedrooms and a sofa bed

Beds were squeaky and very uncomfortable...unless you happen to like squeaky firm beds! The indoor waterpark was ok but I would suggest Splash Lagoon in Erie, Pa over this waterpark any day! But we didn't go for the waterpark, we went for Cedar Point and we really enjoyed ourselves there. The breakfast at Mango Mike's was ok. We only went to Mango Mike's and the waterpark because it was part of the package we got. I've had better breakfasts at hotels before.

We appreciate your feedback on your visit as we are always looking for ways to improve. There are some box springs that we are in the process of replacing due to noise and we hope to have that completed soon.

Awful. Save your money! We paid in full for our trip for two days and on the online reservation form they asked for any special requests. We asked for a 3pm checking, rather than 4pm. Upon arrival, the hotel said no check in until between 12 and 4pm and they would text us when room was ready. We never got a text. When we came back from cedar point, at 6pm and finally got a room, we were soaked from it raining all day, two kids, 3 bags in tow and the room keys didn't work. They replaced them, no apology, and the second pair of key cards didn't work. They said they would have to call for maintenance. We asked for another room instead. Restaurants close very early (before 8pm). The attached tgi Fridays refused to do carry out and said we would have to order at bar and box up the food ourselves. Front desk has to be asked by you how to access the wireless, and what hours are for water park. The hours are no where on any brochures. Stay tuned, we r 1/2 way through our stay here and the frustrations are getting worse!!

My family and I were very impressed with Castaway Bay and we are already talking about returning for a future family vacation. The waterpark was fabulous! We arrived a few hours early and went into the park and were texted when our room was ready. We loved that it was located very near the park. Only thing we were unimpressed with was the prices at Friday's - much higher than if you went to your local Friday's. The pizza at the snack shack inside the waterpark was very good and much more cost effective for a family of 4. Our room was a nice size as we stayed in the tarpon suite. The temperatures on that side of the room did get a little warm but we managed to rig the blind to stay open and that helped a lot with the temperature on that side of the room. Breakfast at Mango Mikes was a great way to start the day and I'm glad we purchased the buffet for each morning we were there. We will definitely be back!
