We stayed 1 night for halloweekends at Cedar Point. We played at the park all day, and checked in around 10pm. I had called ahead to let them know we'd do a late check-in and Brian was very friendly on the phone. When we arrived, he was again very courteous and gave us all the info we needed. I asked about late night pizza places, and he told us Papa John's would be the best bet, and they deliver straight to the room.
The whirlpool is open until 1am which is awesome. We were just too tired to use it.
The hotel looked clean inside and out, and was well lit. We did the cursory check for bed bugs, and found no evidence of them or any other bugs.
We stayed in a room with two doubles, and the beds were that size. I know some people have complained that the doubles were the size of twins, but they weren't. They were definitely double beds. I'm not sure they were the best beds in the world, but I slept soundly, and woke up without any soreness any where. There is also a sign in the elevator listing all the upgrades they are in the process of making between now and 2014, and they are upgrading to queen beds instead of doubles, so that's something to look forward to.
Some people have also complained that the duvets were lumpy, which is true, but since I don't sleep ON the duvet, who cares? I was warm all night. However, if you're super prissy and high maintenance to the point where if everything is not absolutely perfect, this place is not for you. If you're a normal person who is happy with clean facilities, and comfy beds, it's worth the few extra minutes travel time from Cedar Point.
The thermostat is digital and adjusts by 2 degree increments. It was very quiet, and did not keep me awake. It also heated up the room quickly.
The hot breakfast was great. They had fresh fruit (including pineapple), yogurt, western omelets, home fries, bagels, english muffins, wheat bread, pastries, muffins, oatmeal with several types of toppings, apple juice, orange juice, 3 types of coffee, lots of different hot teas, water, waffles, individual cereals and hard boiled eggs. If you can't find something to eat in that you're too difficult.
I'm very sensitive to the smell of smoke, and didn't smell it anywhere on the property.
Also, they have great vending machines with lots of variety in both snacks and drinks. The vending machines also have toothbrushes and otc medications.
The furniture does have a somewhat worn look to it (at least in our room), but that's being upgraded too.
Our room was on the 3rd floor and two rooms away from the elevator. I never noticed elevator noise like I have in some hotels.
We only spent 13 hours in the hotel but the whole time was pleasant, and I'll definitely come back if we do this trip again next year.
