“Clean and Affordable Older Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Stayed at the South Shore while attending a SHS Class reunion. The hotel is definately older, with a 8 ft deep pool (unheard of these days!) and room doors leading to the outside.

However, I was pleasantly surprised that the room was very clean, the beds and pillows were wonderfully comfortable, and it appeared that the bedding was relatively new.

My daughter enjoyed the pool, which has large plastic slides and a nice hot tub. The pool was also squeaky clean.

The staff at the hotel were pleasant and polite. I would stay at this hotel again!

We stayed here after an exhausting day at Cedar Point. Staff was extremely friendly. Room was exceptionally clean. Loved the layout of the large room we had. Living area with small kitchenette and pull out sofa, 2 double room with full bath and a King Room with full bath. Was plenty of space for our family of 6 and we slept well. I would definitely return to this hotel if I were to go to Cedar Point again.

We planned on camping on our way home to Illinois. Mother nature had other ideas and we needed to find a hotel. We were impressed by the price and reviews of this place and were NOT disappointed. We stayed in the King Deluxe. It was very clean and quiet. I am not sure if we were the only ones on our floor, but it was supet quiet. Oh, and the amazing bathtub Jacuzzi was a nice surprise! We will definitely be back!

Another Cedar Point over night trip on a Thursday night. This is the second time we've stayed at this hotel, but this time we booked the 3 room suite. Wish we had know about this place when the kids were younger and we made these trips every month! 2 separate bathrooms and bedrooms, one room with a king size bed and one with bunk beds and a queen. The 3rd room between has a small pull out couch, and tv. (3 tv's in all) Very clean and served its purpose. The pool looked nice enough, although we did not use it. We have stayed at EVERY Cedar Point property. This hotel and especially the price on this room is the best deal out there! When travelling we normally stay at Hamptons and Hiltons, but we know that for this area and the choices available, there's not that much difference in the hotels. When your spending the day a Cedar Point, this is a great choice when you just need a place to sleep without spending the resort prices!

Room Tip: Great Price!

First off, we stayed here one night and next door at Budget Host Inn for the next night, due to vacancy at Shore Inn. I would make this my second choice out of the two. Especially since they are the same price for the room. We stayed on the second floor exterior entrance near back of motel. By the way, there are no elevators. Which was fine with us, but you may want to know that when requesting a room. Interior area we went into smelled a little strange, glad we chose an exterior room. Pool was as shown. We did not take advantage of the pool area though, since we were mainly there for Cedar Point. Pool was open till midnight, and was a little loud, but inside rooms were quieter. Beds were comfortable and room was decently clean. Air conditioning was ok. It took a while to cool off the room. Shower was made for someone under 5'5", but served it's purpose. Watch your step going into your room, because for some reason there is a inch drop off into the room. Staff was friendly, especially the groundskeeper and his associate. I would stay here again if the Budget Host Inn was booked up.

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room near back of motel for a quieter experience. Only if you do not need an elev...
