Reviewed 8 July 2014

We recently stayed here for Cedar Point and this hotel is VERY nice and clean. So much better than we expected. The pool was great too. Kids loved playing on the water slides in pool. Definitely will stay here again. The hot tub was terrific after long days at the park. Overall a great experience staying here!!!

Room Tip: Room near pool was very nice!

This hotel is clean and the staff is very friendly.. Very close to Cedar Point. The rooms are a nice size, the bathroom is a little small but overall a good room. The pool and hot tub are excellent. The pool was supposed to close at midnight but I guess since we were quiet and nobody complained the left it open. It was almost 1:00 a.m. when I went to my room and they had not came out to close it.

Great hotel, great price, great location. I booked this hotel due to it's proximity to Cedar Point and it's low cost. I enjoyed the pool and the fact that there were some great restaurants within walking distance. I felt as though I was in a safe area and was pleased with the cleanliness of our room. The staff at the front desk were also very pleasant and helpful.

We stayed at the South Shore Inn on our trip to Cedar Point, and had a great time. The pool is soooo awesome and they have a cool little arcade. Not to mention it is 2 minutes (literally) from Cedar Point. It is truly a gem.

The hotel was very nice. The kids really enjoyed the pool and hottub. The bedrooms were spacious. I especially loved the bedroom with bunkbeds and a queen bed. The bath tub was very clean and the showers were nice.

Room Tip: We had the 3 bedroom suite and I would highly recommend it. The kids really enjoyed it.

The South Shore Inn is an absolute hidden jewel! I was looking for a hotel close to Cedar Point that had 2 bedrooms and could accommodate 6-8 people. I didn't think it even existed, especially at an affordable rate. I happened across the South Shore Inn and was really excited to see they had a 3-room suite, and that it was maybe 2-3 miles from the park. When I got there I was even more excited. It had a beautiful lobby, the grounds were immaculate with beautiful flowers everywhere, and the staff were exceptionally nice. Our room was incredible - spotlessly clean and very updated and modern-looking. The beds and pillows were SO comfortable, the bathrooms were roomy, and each room had a great TV with a remote. The pool was nice and had a very nice-sized hot tub. There was a large grassy area with picnic tables and grills. This hotel had absolutely everything you could want. I will never stay anywhere but here when we go to Cedar Point.

Room Tip: Room 150 had 2 bedrooms and a living area. And it was on the ground floor right next to the pool.

Our family stayed at South Shore Inn this past weekend and were pleasantly surprised. We did quite a bit of research and decided that this was a good place within our budget. The room was very clean and fit a family of 4. It was on the smaller side (deluxe double bed), however we were not in the room very much at all, except to sleep and bathe. The kids enjoyed the pool (with waterslide) and we enjoyed the hot tub. The pool was open to midnight which we were not expecting, as we heard people talking or splashing. Called Mgmt and it was taken care of that night. Thanks!! The only negative was that a train would ride by (even at night) on occasion. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Deluxe Double room fits family of 4, anymore you may want a suite. Double rooms are on the second fl...
