Howard Johnson Inn - Sandusky Park N. Entrance

Reviewed 18 September 2013

We had a pleasant stay. We arrive in the morning as we were going to Cedar Point. We asked if we could get our keys early. No problem as long as it was after 3:00 when we went to our rooms. The room was clean and ready for us.

I've stayed at my share of HoJo's around the country and this one is no different. If you want no-frills accommodations that are clean and reasonably priced, this is the place. It is the closest value hotel to the Cedar Point causeway. Every other hotel nearby is more than double the price. For anyone who just wants a clean and comfortable place to crash after a day at Cedar Point, this is easily the most affordable option.

The room was clean. The bathroom was clean and well stocked. The TV was a bit old (the only flatscreen on property that I saw was in the lobby). The a/c was cranked down to 64 degrees when we arrived, but it was appreciated given the heat of the day. The staff was friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was a bit sparse - doughnuts, coffee, juice, bananas, toast, and cold cereal. Also, the hotel is a good distance from most food options - though there is a TGI Fridays at Castaway Bay across the street. The hotel does have a pool - a small one. This is nice for anyone with kids that just want to splash around for a bit. The only real drawback to this hotel was its proximity to an active freight rail track. All of the hotels in the vicinity are affected by it, but the trains run pretty late and run very fast. The track is about 1/4 of a mile away.

The great benefit of this hotel is its proximity to the Cedar Point causeway. The only accommodations closer to the Cedar Point entrance (other than the hotels on the Peninsula) are Breakers Express (owned by Cedar Point) and the Rain Water Park & Hotel across the street from the HoJo. I read some reviews of Rain - they weren't favorable and the rooms were 3 times the cost of the HoJo.

Overall, you won't find any better for the money.

Room Tip: Disabled folks should stick to the 1st floor since there are no elevators. Try to get a room close...

Family of 4. Nice cozy hotel, clean, comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and decent breakfast. Very convenient location, proximity to Cedar Point entrance is good as well.Helpful staff at the front desk when we were trying to find places and shops. Lots of parking space and enjoyable pool. Will definitely recommend if you are looking for a reasonable budget place where to stay while in Sandusky.
