The room has two double beds, micro wave, coffee pot, frig, nice long counter with sink, iron with ironing board 32 inch flat screen tv, outside built in pool. The other rooms start at sixty with half of the things this room has to offer. The only down side is the bathroom is so small you can't close the door.

Got key to 1st room, Bed was not made and there was a soda on the nightstand. Went back and they gave me a second room. You did not even need a key to get into the room, the door only locked from the inside with the deadbolt. There was no coffee filter for the morning coffee. Even at $48...

This hotel is by far the worst hotel I have EVER stayed in. The manager was in his boxers and a shirt when we arrived and was very rude. He acted as if our arrival was an inconvenience for him. We were charged an extra $10 because apparently I didn't book the room for 4 people, even though I did...

I booked this hotel on Travelocity two weeks before needing to check in. We got to the hotel around 7:00pm to check in. As we waited in line, there was a gentleman in front of us dealing with the manager because he booked his rooms through hotels.com and was "under charged" for the rooms. He had to pay an extra...

For the past 4 years we have stayed here for cedar point. We know it's not the best hotel, but it worked for what we needed. This year was completely different and I will never return again. Something had happened from last year. The room was beyond gross. We pulled the sheets back and there were pee stains all over...

This place is so unsanitary i could not stay after seeing 2 rooms. The first one had obviously had people smoking weed and they must have fishbowled the room. It was horrible. They had bathroom window open to get the smell out. Knew about the smell in that room, but still tried to rent it to me. No screen on...
