“Good, but needs some cleaning...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

I am currently staying here for two nights on business and althou the staff is very polite, the public areas need some help. I have only seen ONE employee, a young man from the front desk during my stay who actually went out of his way to make sure the lobby area looked tidy late at night. When I walked thru in the early morning yesterday after he had cleaned it was spotless! Everyone else I encountered during the morning and early evening (the manager I presume in the AM, and a young girl in the PM) were just sitting on their cell phones behind the front desk, as they had a door propped open to where you could see literally everything back there...quite tacky in my opinion. Speaking of, they also had their “employees only" laundry room door propped open and you could see paint peeling off the floor, cleaning items carelessly strewn about, and it overall just gave the hotel a very unprofessional feel to it.

I also saw handprints all over the elevator, the elevator floor was very dirty/grimy looking and even had pieces of candy and dirt stuck in the door track. Dirt/snow/rock salt/shoe marks all over the tiles in the lobby, dirty carpets, as well as the hallway needed a good vacuuming as well. I am surprised however to find my room was clean upon check-in and everything was fine in that aspect!

I would hope the manager would step up and help out, as well as his housekeepers or front desk staff. The parking lot is not even that full, so I would hope that when it’s slow someone could help clean besides the one lone overnight boy I saw! When you have time to lean, you have time to clean!

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we are doing. We always enjoy receiving feedback from our guests even if sometimes it's not the best. We use this to know where we are falling short of our goals and forces us strive that much harder to make improvements. Unfortunately our floor tiles do show salt and snow tracks on them very easily during the winter months. It is a constant battle to keep them clean and it seems that we lost that battle during your visit.

Hopefully you will give our location another chance to improve your experience to a positive one. Thank you again for taking the time to let us know how we are doing!

My husband and me just stayed here and it was sooooooooo nice!!! They gots a indoor pool with a hot whirlpool in the same room, fitness room, and free coffee in the morning which I just loved! They had decorated for xmas and i forgot to take a pic of the tree in the lobby but it was just BEAUTIFUL!!! Our room was just so nice and cozy, and the housekeeper did a fine job! The lil boy at the front desk at 2am was so nice and polite, gots me some extra blankets and showed me how to connect to the wireless internet! Price wasn't bad either at 40 bux! only bad thing was the pool was pretty cold...but we just hopped back n forth between the pool and jacuzzi to stay warm n toasty!

Room Tip: get a rm on teh first floor...close to swimming and the vending!

Understand...this is a 4 star for a small town (bit different than a larger city with more options.) That being said, I will definitely bring my family back! Our 2nd visit - front desk could not have been more polite. Room very clean and everything we needed (bring your own shampoo!) Pool area was perfect for kids (cold outside & super warm in the water!) We'll be back for sure!

Certainly above average for a budget hotel. The property seems to have been recently refreshed, with small-ish but brightly decorated rooms. It is located next to a fairly busy freight rail line, but after spending an entire day at Cedar Point we had no issues getting a good night's rest.

Room Tip: Light sleepers should request a room facing away from the tracks.

This is a great economy hotel for visiting Cedar Point. The property is under 20 minutes from the Cedar Point peninsula, and has easy access to OH-2. The downside of the location is the proximity to some train tracks. There was a loud train (horn blaring) about every 30-60 minutes. The bed was very comfortable, and the flat screen TV had plenty of channels to choose from, and the picture was good. The bathroom laminate floor could have been swept better, and the towels could have been softer. Bring your own shampoo, they only provide bar soap. The biggest downside was that the door to the room was difficult to properly close, so the housekeeping staff failed to secure the door each day. We kept our valuables in the car for this reason, and due to the fact they charged to use the safe in the room. I would definitely stay here again, as the rates were really good for Sandusky, and there was nothing majorly wrong with the hotel. They even give you a paper outside your door each morning!

Room Tip: Request a room facing the road, as then you will not be on the same side as the train.
