First off, the people at the front desk were great. Having worked a front desk job before, I know it is NOT their fault. We got into our room expecting something that was...well, just ok. What we found when we got there - 1. Dead cockroach on the bathroom floor. 2. Used soap in the shower, complete with the previous...

The room is very average. Bed was hard, bed was also rather small, pillows were mediocre. The TV has a descent amount of channels available. Location is nice for the parks only 10 or 15 minute drive and lots of restaurants in the area. The pool looked nice did not have time to try it out. The girl who checked...

Dear Guest, Thanks for your comments. I’m glad you found our staff friendly and the price appealing. I’m sorry the bed wasn’t to your liking. They are not all the same, and we could perhaps have moved you to a room with a bed you preferred. We take real pride in our hotel and in doing whatever it takes to...

I read the reviews after I booked and was skeptical. I decided to stay anyway. I'm not sure who the other guest dealt with but when I arrived there were 2 people at the front desk who were awesome! I wish I could remember their names. They were very helpful, suggested places to eat for me and my family and...

The lobby had an awful unpleasant odor which was a turn off. Front clerk was very friendly. Our first room had visible mold and was a smoking room. My husband and I used Expedia which the manager explained that when using this type to book, they just give first available. He said to make sure after yoi book, to call...

This is NOT a luxury hotel by any means. It is an updated 1950s era motel. The original bathroom fixtures confirm that. Obviously it has been updated. New curtains, new A/C unit, new carpet, recently painted, etc. The furnishings were fine. Probably slightly used from another nicer hotel that had updated. Tube TV but it was fine. Our room had...

do not stay at this hotel. It was WAY over priced to begin with. We decided to do a weekend trip to Put-n-bay and didn't want an expensive hotel. The hotel was run down, old, and smelled bad. I checked the bed for bed bugs when we arrived in the room and I didn't see anything. The next morning when...

In response to your claims, a complete inspection was done in that room, and there was absolutely no evidence to back up your claim. In addition, we have rented that room twice since that morning...and no other issues or complaints. Maybe you had a bug attached to your clothing from somewhere else, but I am 100% positive that you did...

We were coming from London ON which is a 4 hour drive so we were looking for a cheap place to stay for the night before our day at Cedar Point; this was the cheapest hotel we could find. It's no 5 star but that should be obvious for the price. It was however, a good place to stay at...

IS only worth it if you literally only have about 60 bucks for a room, and even then i was charged $73. The bathroom door knob was stuck in so it would latch shut, and the hinges were so slanted it constantly wanted to open, so my buddy had to watch me relieve myself of the mexican and italian lunch...

My bf and I stayed at this hotel for 3 days, during July 4th, 2015. We accidentally spilled some chocolate on our sheets the first night - and when confronted by the manager - he went on to tell us the owner demanded he kick us out - as he (owner) was furious, thinking it was hair color or something....
