What this hotel has going for it: Location near Cedar Point. Clean bathroom. Everything worked in room. Staff was friendly and helpful. Negatives: It's an older property, and that shows (although there was evidence it's being worked on) Some serious wear and tear, and the breakfast was very basic. However, I visited before theme park season really gets rolling.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 October 2016

Honestly we have probably stayed here 10+ times in the last 15 years because of it's GREAT LOCATION right next to Cedar Point, and of course the great price! I stayed here the last weekend of September. I was pleasantly surprised to find the rooms updated! Everything was a lot newer and cleaner than previous stays! Beds were incredibly comfortable....

My stay was quite enjoyable, the price was very reasonable for the location and the service. Not much to complain about except that the motel is a bit old. The staff there were very accommodating if any issues were to prop up.

It's really convenient that the facility is super close to Cedar Point so that makes for easy access. My stay at the hotel was satisfactory. There was good wifi and the staff were very accommodating and kind. It's also a great bonus that they offer complimentary breakfast!

Worst experience. We left and didn't sleep here. Didn't get a refund. Didn't care. Went to use the toilet and there was blood in it...went to flush...toilet didn't work. Went to office and they said they would "upgrade" our room. There is no upgrade here. We looked at two more rooms. Thought one was okay, but then noticed "white powdery"...

We stayed at this hotel over Halloween it was nice for the price, dated but clean. The staff was friendly and efficient. It was super close to CP so that is the reason we choose it rather than pay nearly $300 for the same thing across the street. Only problem was the train at night it wakes you up in...
