Reviewed 1 November 2016

The motel was cheap. Less then $50.00 for the night. The positives were the clean mattress. The cons out weigh the pros. The room we booked wasn't available and were given a room with a double bed on the second floor instead of a single on the first floor. The first thing I noticed about the room was inside of...

A major confluence was shaping up for Chicago on August 20, so we struck out from a Friday Baltimore swelter to make Lake Michigan. This place - the Roadway South - turned out to be the ideal, strategic "midway to Midway," please excuse. Anyway, I'd say Mr. Hum T's assessment above is perfectly placed. The Roadway South (aka in some...

There was garbage on the table, the Ice bucket leaked, the walls had dirty smears in spots. The sheets were pretty clean, however. The place is rundown and old, but one of the cheapest places to stay near cedar point.

man what a craphole, I realize I paid less than $70 but c'mon how is this place part of a franchise? The room smelled so bad we had to go and buy scented candles, febreeze and a plug in air freshener( which we left there for the next poor sap). There is no fridge, microwave, free HBO, hair dryer, iron,...

We got a great rate for this place with 4 of us only paying $20 a night for our shared room. Hotel staff was very, very friendly both at night and during the day. However the room was dirty with marks in the ceiling, some stains on the sheets, and dead bugs filling up an overhead light in the bathroom....

We stopped here as we hoped it was a good place to see Lake Erie and I am sure I read on the internet site it was 0.6 miles from the lake (definitely walking distance.) We arrived to discover this was not the case and Lake Erie was actually a few miles away and definitely not walkable. The staff were...

We were looking for an affordable option near cedar point for just one night. We were nervous based on the reviews but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Outside doesn't look like much. Pool looks clean. The rooms are not upscale by any stretch but they are clean and perfectly adequate. Carpet and bedspreads appear fairly new. I was relieved...

Property is clean but very worn and dated. TV and phone were both non functional and the AC unit needed to run flat out to keep the room even moderately cool. The price is attractive for a single night as an alternative to driving after a long day in the park, but for multiple nights there are better options in...

I didn't have high expectations for this motel, considering the price point. Room was relatively clean, beds were fine and neatly made up. There was a hole in the bathroom wall and for some reason that I do not understand, the towel rack was in the shower. We had to leave the hotel at 6am every morning, so we wanted...
