I stayed at this property for two nights in October 2010 for Cedar Point's Halloweekends. I stayed at the other Rodeway Inn in town earlier this year and was expecting the same less than stellar accommodations I received there, but this property was a pleasant surprise. Having said that, it is still not a place I would enjoy spending a...

I stayed there in October 2010 for 1 night with 3 friends and paid $60. It's not a 5 star hotel no, but it's not bad for paying such a low price and having it so close to Cedar Point. There were no bugs, no mildew smell, no stains,...nothing of that sort. The worst thing about the room was that...

If you're staying in Sandusky for Cedar Point & won't be in your hotel often, then this hotel isn't bad. If you plan on staying in your hotel all day then I'd look into a different hotel. There's an overwhelming musty smell that hits you like a rock when you walk in, the TV remote barely worked, TV channels are...

May of 2010 we had several members of our family graduate from high schools and colleges. To celebrate these accomplishments we planned a trip to Cedar Point, fourth of July weekend. As Choice Privileges members we booked our hotel through their site. We all decided on the Rodeway Inn Cedar Point South 2905 Milan Rd. Sandusky, Ohio 44870, (419) 685-1291....

This hotel advertises that they have renovated, so despite reading bad reviews, I decided to give it a shot, since it was a great location near Cedar Point. Walked in to a really musty room. Looking in the bathroom there were flying ants and small ants everywhere. I had to kill a bunch before anyone could shower after a long...

I booked the hotel online. Although I never read any of the reviews on this dump before hand. We got there around 5 pm as we were checking in the receptionist gave us a can of bug spray, that clued me in very fast. We got in the room decided to not unpack that we would go to the store...

Paid About $100.00 with tax...Place very run down. Needs remodeling bad...Bed uncomfortable. Furniture broken..Bathroom tiny and had a window that you couldn't see out because bushes blocking. Carpet stained and dirty. No hair dryer or remote for TV. All stations on tv had static...Do yourself a favor pay a little more and stay somewhere else.

We booked the motel for 4 people for 3 nights at $55 a night. $55 and only 2 miles from Cedar Point, we were thrilled...until we opened the door. The smell of Lysol hit us as soon as we entered the room, then we turned on the air and the strong smell of vinegar assulted us. Lysol and vinegar arent...

The room was literally breathtaking with an overwhelming musty, dank stench that made us feel like we opened the door to a tomb instead of a hotel room. The dilapidated furniture and outdated carpeting and curtains looked like they were purchased from the Brady Bunch’s garage sale. The windows were opaque with decades of dirt, which is no surprise with...
