Reviewed August 28, 2011

The pics are not accurate on the site. It looks much better on there. The desk person when we checked in on 8/26/11 at 6pm was very rude and unprofessional about her job.Gave us wrong directions to our room and they had no luggage carts so we carried our luggage up stairs and around the whole top floor to finally find it. Once in the room the bedspread had cigarette burn holes in it. The remote did not work.Long dark hairs on bathroom sink. Asked the front desk for two extra pillows on our way out to dinner. When we returned he tried to lecture me that we took too long. I was disgusted with the professionalism of the employees. The next morning called the front desk to get the remote fixed. They blew us off. Good luck there.

We stayed there 2 nights recently and found the hotel to be clean and the front desk people were very nice. The rooms were very small but clean - would be real tight with 4 people in it with all there luggage, etc. was only 2 of us.... the pool was absolutely discusting was very cloudy - saw 2 men checking the water and put some chemicals in it but didn't help was still cloudy the next day. I will stay there again was good price for what you get.....they have a sonic right in front of the hotel and a few restaurants within walking distance and a walmart across the parking lot too...is right off route 2....

Thank you for taking the time to offer comments about your recent stay at our hotel property. We're glad to hear that our prices are competetive and that our staff served your needs well. As with all outdoor pools that service a large number of people, the chemical balance is very hard to regulate but we continue to use technology and staff expertise to combat such problems. Thanks for choosing to stay with us and we look forward to seeing you on a future visit!

We checked in after a wonderful time at Cedar Point, The outside of the building looks fine,The lobby wasn't that bad, But when you get into the room look out, Bathroom was dirty looks like nobody cleaned it, We had a double bed and didnt have enough pillow so we went to call housekeeping and the phone didn't work. After looking around we dicided to leave and get our money back. I would not STAY here, This is the type of "motel" that you would have to worry about BED BUGS, Spend a few extra dollars and stay some where else!!!!!

This place was pretty dreadful. The staff was extremely unfriendly. The person at the front desk had a terrible attitude. Half of the light bulbs in the room were burned out. The room was recently painted, but wreaked of the new paint smell. Blankets had holes in them and TV signal went in and out. Wifi would not work with iPad or iPhone. But the WORST PART was the shrimp tails behind the nightstand that we discovered while trying to figure out why the phone didn't work. Save your money or spend a few dollars more and go to one of the many other hotels in the area. Don't stay here.

When we arrived we had some of the best service from the women behind the desk I have ever had! Our room was ready as soon as we were able to check in at 3. After reading all the reviews I was a bit nervous myself for us to stay there,but I stuck it out because everyone has there own views. The room was very nice, nothing like I read on all the reviews, bathtub was as clean as ever and had not problem with the drainage or anything in the bathtub. There were NO bugs either!! We left the dDo Not Disturb sign on the door and housekeeping did not bother us one time, we actually bothered them because we needed more towels!! The only thing was the pool was a little bit dirty, so we didnt stay in the pool! We will be staying there again on our trip this month to Cedar Point..Im so glad we stuck it out staying here because it was deff not that bad.

We stayed at the motel July 31 one night thank god, We checked in after a long day at cedar point. The man at the front desk was nice, We got to our room and it was seemed to look clean, My daughter sat on the bed and look at the night stand and she opened the door and it had junk in it and the outside was dirty. I need to shower and I decided to wear shoes in the tub, The tub doesnt drain so my kids couldnt take a shower. The towels were very hard. I went to use the phone to call housekeeping and found out that the phone doesnt work, Has to use my cell phone to get more towels and pillows, The TV has stickers all over it. We only had one light in the room the other ones didnt work. I would NOT stay at this motel. I looked at the reviews before I went and I should of listen. Nasty is all I have to say!!!

Room Tip: Dont stay here !!!

We arrived to check into dirty rooms.Rooms were not ready at check in time.We booked 6 rooms to be beside each other, months in advance, to find out that none of us were even close to one another. My room had a major water leak from the rain water.It was coming in from the ceiling onto my bed and floor. I'm not talking about a little water , it was pouring into my room. I called the front desk and they told me to wait it out, it would stop raining soon.I demanded to be moved. Finally got into another room with a broken toilet.It took 2 hours for them to fix it.I found out that they rented the water damaged room out later that night.This place is a joke.Do not stay there. You'll be sorry you did.
