This is my third review for the Maples as we have been coming here for years when we make our annual Cedar Point trip. We have fallen in love with this motel and the owners Joan and Steve! We knew this trip this summer would be difficult as Joan passed away during the winter. We weren't sure if things would...

Arrived early about 8:30 a.m. opening day and my room was ready. Steve Faber and the Faber family make you feel absolutely like you are family. My room was clean, comfortable beds, and just an all around great room. You have a key ( not computer card) to enter your room. I always stay here when visiting Sandusky, you are...

An old, kitschy, clean motel. The family that owns it is incredibly friendly and accomodating. For the price, i'm not expecting new carpet and wallpaper. I want a clean bed and shower and air conditioning. It's perfect. Also, we had the same problem with booking as a recent reviewer - messages left with no response. We finally got ahold of...

We have stayed at this place last year when we visited the area and had an overall decent experience with Steve and his mother (owners). However this year when we decided to come back we called for 3 days prior and could not even get a simple call back to tell us whether we could book a room or not....

Absolutely enjoyed my stay at this motel. The Fabers made sure that I had everything I needed to enjoy my stay. Spent an entire week going back and forth to the Great Dane Nationals (GDCA National Specialty Show). The room was neat and clean and even had a nice space to put up my dog crate. It was terrific to...

The Maples is the ultimate motel to stay at. When I arrived at 9:00 in the morning they had a room ready for me. The room was great well heated (it was cold with gail force winds), very comfortable and the bed was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The room was very clean, had a...

My girlfriend and I stayed here in July on our first trip to Cedar Point together. After looking through numerous pages of Sandusky hotels wanting $100 + dollars a night we found the Maples. Upon arrival we were greated by the owners son who also helps run the hotel. He was one of the nicest people you could ever meet...

I now go to Cedarpoint only in September and October and everytimes, i stay here. Having to drive 800 miles from Quebec city, Canada, i usually get at the motel between 10 and 11 on friday morning ( working night shift ) and there is no questions about checking in time. I ring the office bell as soon as i...

I, like a few others, really wanted to love this place and give it a good review. But I can't. After reading some of the positive reviews, I was excited to stay at this "retro" motel, thinking it would be a kick back to the days when we were kids and went to Cedar Point each summer. The positives were...
