Positive Reviews

Great Choice for Waterparks Lovers

The majority of visitors really enjoyed the waterpark. It was especially a favorite with parents of tween age children. Plus, since adult enjoy themselves too, it makes for a nice family activity.

Excellent Location for Cedar Point

For those who also want to visit the amusement park it's ideal. Although it is not within walking distance, it is only a short car drive away. According to guests, this is rather convenient. They claim that after a long day at the park it doesn't take long to get back the hotel.

Extras Make It Worth Your Stay

While not inexpensive, guests mentioned that they enjoyed the extras they received such as the free breakfast, early admission to Cedar Point and the parking pass to the Park. These added amenities help justify price for a number of travelers.

Negative Reviews

Dated Decor

Some visitors claim that the rooms are showing their age. They look extremely outdated and the paint was peeling a certain areas. While other areas of the hotel look more modern, the guestrooms could use a makeover and more 21st-century feel, according to a number of visitors.

Dingy Surroundings

Guests remarked the furniture seems bit grungy and worn. Some guests mentioned that balcony furniture even look dirty. Others mentioned things like poor housekeeping, spiderwebs and funny or unappealing odors, such as urine and smoke.

Difficult Getting Comfortable

A few guests remarked that the beds and even the pillows, are not the best for sleeping. They found them rather uncomfortable. Some guests also mentioned that the beds seem smaller than would be expected.
