This hotel is quite a bit cheaper than the other hotels in the area and it’s about 5 minutes from Cedar Point. This is an older hotel and not really updated but it was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly. We would stay here again, it’s a good value if you need a place to staff for the park.

If I could rate this place a zero I would. First off, we check in and then go get some food, then run to the store. We go to the room for the first time around 9:30 and we set our bags down. Within 30 seconds, we see two spiders crawl out from under the sheets on the bed. Immediately,... More

We stayed in a 2 room suite. It was EXTREMELY clean. It was very close to Cedar Point. Compared to other options in the area, this by far is the best place to stay if you are in the area to visit Cedar Point. It was EXTREMELY reasonably priced for the size of the room to accommodate our group of... More

This family run location was found randomly when doing an online search for hotels close to Cedar Point. I've stayed just about everywhere in Sandusky close to the attractions. I just never thought about finding a place to the east of the causeway entrance. This is an ideal location. Without a doubt, the best motel I've ever stayed at. The... More

My boyfriend and I picked this place, because it was close to our destination: CEDAR POINT! It was less than 3 miles away from Cedar Point, and the price beat a lot of the other hotels that were even further away. The lobby is quite posh - pretty stairway and an overall classical style. Our room was not spectacular, but... More

Nice older motel with a clean look. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant. The location is very close to Cedar Point and great local restaurants. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a clean no-frills place to stay.

We booked a room for our daughter's 7th birthday and checked in after a long day at Cedar Point. We were welcomed with a room already set up for a surprise! I had asked for a special something for her to walk into but this was way more than we hoped for. They had pink balloons, streamers, banners, paper plates... More

It doesn't have the highest end finishes and is a bit dated but it's clean. A good sleeper room. Not expensive. The staff was friendly. My buddy & I stayed there over a long weekend for Cedar Point and it was only used for sleeping.

This motel is a hidden gem in my opinion. It's a cute place that is very close to Cedar Point. The front desk staff that checked me in was super friendly and efficient.

The hotel is in need of renovation. We had the family suite which had a master bedroom & another room w/a queen and bunk beds. It also had separate bathrooms but the living area was small & dated. There was no breakfast available (not even continental)
