It has been several years since I stayed at the motel. The woman who ran the business passed away last year. Her son is attempting to get it back up and running. Please contact him to help support the best family owned business I have ever encountered. Caring people providing services at a reasonable price in an area that usually...

Maples Motel is in a good location but what keeps them in business is their low prices. We had driven past this motel many times when we were in Sandusky and it looks very quaint on the exterior with shade trees and a pool out in front. The problems are inside. The bathroom bothered me the most with rotted wood...

I went with my family and boyfriend and it is absolutely amazing. Each time I go back I will continue to visit this motel. Great brothers who own it and very clean and comfy rooms. The place was very, very clean with bathrooms with plenty of folded towels, soap, and the best part is there was plenty of hot water...

Nice motel, nice family runs the place. The motel is getting a little rundown and could really use updating, new beds would be nice. The trains across the road come through often and having a crossing right there makes for a tough nights sleep. I just put some music on in the room, the wife uses earplugs that are supplied...

Love, Love, Love!! Stayed here before a visit to Cedar Point. What a great place! Steve is a wonderful host, full of info and just a genuine guy! Came back for a second night after our day at the park. BTW - there is a beautiful back way to Cedar Point from this wonderful, kitschy place! Extremely clean and we...

The motel is a throwback but in a genuine and good way. I was there for 8 nights, I did a lot of research before coming into town. Do you know how hard it is to find a place without BUGS in the review?? This place? No bugs, clean rooms! And everything else beyond that is a bonus for me....

My husband and I love this place! If you're expecting mints on your pillow and room service this is not the place. However, if you're on a budget and looking for family friendly, clean, comfortable lodging this is IT. Enlighten the younger generation on the charm of an authentic motel. Excellent for Cedar Point enthusiasts. Family owned and operated with...

One of a kind, a Vacationland landmark, pride of Ohio, with very cool neons and all the great vintage amenities that the historic-minded will love: figure 8 shaped pool, nice blue and white umbrellas on the lawn, charming garden areas, cool signage and lots of old stuff including a 50s Rambler. The rooms have lots of vintage in them. The...

My husband and I stayed here for a night to go to Cedar Point the next morning. This motel is old school. I loved the sign. I think it could an update without losing that feeling. Steve, the owner, is friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast is at 7am and I mean 7am. It is just coffee and donuts and...

I read reviews and thought this would be a nice retro motel to try on our road trip. The people who said this was a great place were definitely wrong. I was not expecting a Hilton or even a Super 8 so my expectations weren't high. The owner was nice and service was good but the hotel itself is in...

“They're all good; for hardcore retros, pick the Sun-Set Lodge (no phone or air conditioning, but extra retro)”
