Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The first room we checked into looked as if it hadn’t been cleaned. The install around the bathtub was covered in mold and the room had a bad odor. The refrigerator and microwave were nasty. I went to the front desk to ask for a new room and the CSR was very accommodating and gave us another room. At first sight the room looked good until we turned the lights on. The refrigerator was leaking, the carpet wasn’t vacuumed, the linens looked as if they weren’t changed and just thrown back on the bed. None of the services in the room had been dusted. There was less than a half a roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. The floor hadn’t been swept or mopped. There was a piece of a bright pink fingernail in the corner of the bathroom. The bathroom door was broken. And in the hallway??? Bugs everywhere. No one has the time to wipe down a wall. I took a photo of a light fixture in the hallway and the massive amount of bugs around it was disgusting. We were going to Cedar Point that night and heading home to Kentucky in the morning so we weren’t in our room for long. When we come back to visit Cedar Point next year, we will definitely NOT be making a reservation at this hotel. For it to look so nice and new in the photos and in person when you pull into the parking lot, it is truly disappointing when you get past the front desk. This is the worst experience I have ever had with a Holiday Inn.
