5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We loved the location and price of this hotel. We were able to leave cedar point and be right at our hotel. The front desk staff members were so welcoming and friendly. The beds were very comfortable. We stayed 2 nights. Unfortunately the noise level from outside was a bit loud. The second evening someone was lighting off fireworks at 1am. But all in all a great hotel and we would stay again! Thank you.

It was a nice place to stay, beds were comfortable, and the showers were great. The inlet, or pond/river was something I loved, herons, egrets, huge fish, and one early evening we even saw an eagle! Easy access to Cedar Point and restaurants and stores were near by if we needed something. Had good choices for breakfast which were included. We stayed two nights, and if we were ever back to Cedar Point, we'd stay again.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
First, the staff was friendly. Just incredibly nice people. The room was clean but not what I was expecting. Furniture is outdated and the tv was probably only a 27 inch. No fridge to keep drinks cold, no coffee pot, and no hangers for clothes. The floor was laminate rather than carpet which I liked because I could tell it was clean. The beds were comfortable. It is really close to Cedar Point but also really close to train tracks. I was awakened about five times. For about $30 more I could have stayed at a chain hotel and had the basics that were lacking. Thankfully we only booked one night.

Disliked: Cleanliness
The price was great and super close to the park. However, our bathroom seemed a little dirty (shower had hair in it and there was a towel that looked like it was used and they just left it). Beds seemed fine but floors were a little dirty too. The doors need better locks on them and the bathroom door didn’t work completely so it would not stay closed while you were in there.
