Made the mistake of going here instead of kalahari. I stayed on a sunday and half the water park slides were not running or manned. The room with a whirlpool tub was ok at best and the food was below average.

No there is no Lake by the hotel. Yes you do have to drive to it but its not too far. Its located by Cedar Point. There are hotels over there that you can walk right out to Lake Erie like Hotel Breakers.
