“Bad breakfast, rude night staff, dirty, uncomfortable beds and pillows.”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

The two men who worked breakfast were very friendly and helpful; however, the woman who worked the front desk at night was rude and treated us like a huge inconvenience when we asked for fresh towels and more pillows.
The breakfast tasted horrible, and the milk, butter, and cream cheese were left out for very questionable lengths of time.
The floors in our room were extremely dirty. After being barefoot in the room for an hour, our feet were black!
None of us slept well because the pillows and beds were very uncomfortable, and the air conditioner was really loud. The humidity in the room was awful when it wasn't even humid outside.

Main selling point for this place is its proximity to Cedar Point. Price was competitive, as well. Additional Pros included: newly renovated & clean, fresh room; everything in working order; Queen-size beds clean & comfy; roll-away & extra pillows requested were already in room at check-in; free breakfast. Cons were: no elevator, making moving in & out more difficult; small bathroom; lack of variety at breakfast; sound of trains & their horns at all hours of the night prevented sound sleep; staff wasn't very friendly & at times somewhat overbearing & rude. Over all, if everything remained the same, we would probably stay here again.

Room Tip: The newly renovated rooms furthest from the train tracks should be best. 1st floor, if lifting bags...

We'd read a few, better than average reviews on this place and decided to stay here for two nights. We arrived around 8pm evening was surprised to see the reception area behind a secured door. Our room was located on the first floor, about halfway down the building. We noticed the noise right away coming from all directions - The street, the parking lot, the room upstairs, the staircase outside our doorway. But seeing as we had been on the road most of the day, we settled in for the night. In the morning, I noticed a 1/2" gap between the door frame and door which explained the noise. The shower curtain had a burn hole on it along with a burn mark on the tub. The room smelled a bit musty too, quite possibly because the vent in the bathroom didn't vent out the steam from the shower. Anytime a person walked by our room we could hear it. We both had restless nights. For the price we paid for this room, we were hoping for more.

I was not happy with the room the carpet was wet more so at the door, but even between the beds it was damp. The shower had hairs on and in it too. The woman behind the desk when checked in wasn't very friendly and neither was the one at checkout the next day. The beds and pillows were awful hard lumpy and nasty did not sleep just kept getting up lay down felt worse the next day. The breakfast was OK and the gentleman in there kept tables wiped off and things were stocked. Overall not a good experience will not go back there again. KE

We thought this was a great room for one night. We were going to Cedar Point for the entire day and needed a comfortable, reasonably priced room for sleeping. The rooms are large and the queen sized beds are a plus. The staff was terrific and the front desk man was so friendly. He even makes the waffles. Basic bread filled breakfast, no fruits but fine for the kids.

Hotel was just what I expected for medium price, in season hotel. Nothing fancy but not a dump either. Great location to Cedar Point/Soak City. Staff was great! Very friendly! The only complaint was that the carpet in the room was EXTREMELY DIRTY!!! When walking in bare feet they would be almost black after a few minutes. Never been in hotel with this before and this is why I gave it 2 rating instead of a 3. Would chose again if this is fixed.

My family had planned a week-end trip to Cedar Point. We had a total of 21 in our party. Prior to booking this hotel I contacted the front desk based on a few of the reviews on this site. I questioned the mold & mildew smell because of grandchildren with allergies. I was told that rooms had been renovated and this is a continuous process every year. I asked for a total of 7 renovated and non-smoking rooms and adjoining rooms if possible. I was told my request would be noted. We arrived early and found all of our rooms were ready. The hotel had met all of my requests and had even been kind enough to have all 7 of our rooms all in a row and one set of adjoining rooms. Each room was clean and fresh as promised. This is not a 4 star hotel, but the price met our needs. The bathrooms are small (but clean) and the breakfast is not for anyone looking for a full meal, but just something to hold you until you get what you want. We made use of the pool which was also clean. Being close to the park was another plus. We would stay there again. I would advise all travelers too call ahead and speak directly with the hotel if you have any special request. You may be surprised how they often will be accommodating to get your repeat business.
