I stayed here on Sept 6, 2015. I booked through Priceline express deals, but I had some idea of what hotel it was going to give me. The room was clean and plenty of towels were provided. Not bad for the price I paid since I only needed to somewhere to sleep in between Cedar Point visits. The only downside... More

Pleasantly surprised. Our "group" of twelve decided to split and some went to Comfort Inn and paid $130.00/night. We paid 1/2 that and was welcomed by courteous staff, clean rooms, and a decent breakfast. If your on a budget - I would recommend staying at this Econo Lodge!

Omg it's bad. Dirty, the smell burned my throat. Rugs in hall on second floor looked like some one got murdered there. The women working there was so nice. I felt bad for her. Next time I'll pay a little more for a cleaner room.

We stayed here on a recent trip to Cedar Point and had a very good experience. The motel is tucked behind a Mexican restaurant (good food and great choice without even having to get in the car) and right next to a family entertainment center. The mall and tons of restaurants are along the same road. Very easy to get... More

Good location and best price in town. Front desk was friendly, informative, and helpful. Our room was clean but had a very strong odor... smelled like they may have went crazy with a freshening spray. My guess was that it was used to cover up cigarette smoke. That was really my only issue with the room. It also had nice... More

No professionalism. The hotels main picture makes you think that your staying in a hotel, but it's more like a motel. It's one story and in the shape of a rectangle behind a Mexican restaurant. "Continental breakfast" is in the same small area as checkin. Basically no where to sit and enjoy. Christy the manager of housekeeping, front desk and... More

Excellent staff, very friendly. We found out we were given a free upgrade which was very nice. The room had a small fridge and a microwave, 2 beds and a separate sitting area. The fixtures were a bit dated but the room was CLEAN! The carpets, etc appeared to have been replaced recently. Not a luxury suite, but then again... More

I decided to go with another Econo Lodge because of the positive experience I had with the brand in the past. This was no exception. We were surprised with how cheap the room and how clean/up to date it was. Nice TV with a HDMI cord! Other than that it's just your basic hotel room, great for a one night... More

I would not recommend staying here unless you are only planning on sleeping there and then I would limit your stay to only 1, maybe 2 nights. We found a dead spider in one of the beds and there was a dead hornet in the heating/air unit by the temperature gauges. Continental breakfast includes wrapped muffins, 1 flavor of bagel,... More
