It's been at least 30 years since I have stayed in a motel but this was available with short notice at a decent price. No restaurant or bar at this time and I never could find wi-fi network (very weak signal maybe but we were up front, by office) but the room was clean. Yes, the decor is straight out... More

Perfect location, clean rooms, comfy beds, friendly staff, easy access to rooms. The pillows were a little lumpy but I think that's because they are put in the washing machine. I still had such a great sleep. A couple places to eat walking distance and best of all its so close to cedar point!

South Shore Inn was definitely clean and having a one bedroom suite made it nice for two adults and two teenage sons, not having to book two separate rooms. I liked the location with it being so close to Cedar Point so we didn't have far to go since that was what we were there for. Staff was nice and... More

We stayed here for two nights while going to cedar point. This is a nice motel! It's not the Ritz, but it's not Ritz priced either. This is a clean, safe motel. Just minutes away from cedar point. The staff was great! It's just a small motel. But it's very clean and very reasonably priced. We would definitely stay there... More

We were put on the second floor in a non-smoking room. We were close to the stairs. This inn has external entrances. The room was basically clean but there were minor repairs such as missing trim in part of the bathroom. About midnight while I was sitting near the bathroom, there was a slight smell of smoke. I don't know... More

Booked this hotel and very happy with our decision. Pool was very nice. The staff was amazing. Rooms were clean and nice. One thing is the shower was low and the water pressure was low as well. Over all a great stay. We are going to book for next year in January when the new rates are out. Highly recommend!

The rooms/hotel are on the older end but overall clean. Very close to Cedar Point. The room had two comfortable double beds, closet, dresser, nightstand, TV, clock radio, private bathroom/shower, mini-fridge, & iron. The motel rooms overlook a pool and hot tub area with hours from 9am- Midnight. Even though the pool was packed at 11:45pm the room was completely... More

Unfortunately our plans changed and we only spent several hours here. They let us check in a little early (kind and accommodating). The pool was great (until a father brought young children that he didn't supervise). The beds were comfortable and the room we had was a great place for a family. It had a bedroom and a "living space"... More

The lobby was very clean and the staff were friendly but maybe a little green and could use some more experience. The room was clean but in need of updating and some coffee pots!
