“Amazing for the price and location”
Reviewed 25 April 2013

First off, this property is nothing special as far as the interior decorating and could use an update in the rooms. That said, for this price and its close proximity to Cedar Point makes it well worth the stay. I personally stay here every time I go to Sandusky. THe jacuzzi rooms only run around $65 dollars and are quite the value if you try and price out a similar room in the same area. It is right next to the causeway which takes you into Cedar Point and close enough to the Castaway Waterpark to walk to. Also if you want to visit Fridays for social atmosphere you can walk as well. Once again, the rooms are quite old and dated, but for the location, price, and value I promise you will not find a better deal. They also offer complimentary breakfast in the morning; however, I am normally not up in time to make it. I have had it a couple times and it is a step below what a Holiday Inn Express has; however, once again it is all about the location and value here!

Room Tip: I prefer the jacuzzi rooms. They are around $65 a night. But all the rooms are fine.

We stayed an extra night at Cedar Point to use the water park.
Was very impressed with the new room and facilites at a budget price.
The gentleman who served us was so polite and nice.
Breakfast is very basic - would like fresh milk but I am not complaining.
We had a refurbished warm and comfortable room and was easy to walk next door to the park.

Room Tip: Downstairs so easy to load luggage. Hope this hotel succeeds - I was impressed!

This was a great place to rest our heads after a long day at Halloweekend. Price was good. Location was awesome. Will stay again. Our only complaint was the complimentary soap was broken in pieces, but we always bring our own anyway.

My son and I have been attending Cedar Point since He was quite small.

We had stayed at various facilities over the years and have found The Best Budget Inn North most consist in service, cleanliness and price. The close proximity to The Cedar Point Causeway proves to be invaluable, after a long day spent at the park.

This facility may offer the best value for your dollar while visiting The Cedar Point Amusement Park.

This hotel is situated just outside Cedar Point. The prices are very reasonable and the hotel is very well kept and very clean inside and out. The free breakfast was always fresh and good. The staff were all very nice friendly and helpful with any thing I needed or asked about. The pool was closed but looked very nice in the spring when I stayed there the first time. This was my second visit to Cedar Point for this season and I picked this hotel for its price and location. I came back the second time this fall because of the location and what a great experience I had the first time.

Room Tip: Both rooms that I stayed in were very nice and well kept

The breakfast room and breakfast for this hotel was the best part of our stay. There were many tables, with space between them, and the breakfast was nice. However, in room 133, the TV didn't work (couldn't turn it on w/ the remote and there was no power button on the TV). Rm 133 had been a smoking room (from smell & burn marks on sink), but we had asked for non-smoking. There was hair in the bathroom in room 134. The tub in rm 133 didn't drain. A light bulb was missing in room 133 and the overhead light didn't work in room 134. The clerk found a bulb that we installed in 133, but she said nothing could be done about the overhead light. The fitted sheet on one bed in 133 didn't fit the bed, so the mattress showed. They had surfaces for opening suitcases, but they were unusable because safes were on them. Otherwise, there were no suitcase stands. The train that others complained about didn't bother us. When we told the clerk about our problems she was friendly but said there was no one to fix things and that she couldn't leave the desk. Oh yes, when we first arrived at 5:00pm she said her credit card device wasn't working and asked us to go do something (like eat) until it was fixed. In all, I think this hotel has a management problem. Many of these things could be prevented by using check lists and there should be some means of immediately correcting problems pointed out by guests. This could be a nice hotel but as it stands now we would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't stay in rooms 133 & 134

Non smoking room, smelled musty, bed spread and blankets stained, sofa bed cig burns and mattress torn big and guts falling out. Bathroom sink did not drain, carpet dirty. All 4of us kept our clothes on to sleep ,got up and left at 6:30 AM.....not because we had to just wanted to escape. Paid extra for a deluxe room w sofa bed.....right. Outside Cedar Point, but close...which was why we were there. Pay a little extra and stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Not sure there is one, since ours was the Deluxe.
