I woke up to find bed bugs crawling right next to my head! If you're trying to save money by staying here, don't! It'll end up costing you triple after you pay an exterminator for the bed bugs you're guaranteed to take home!

A friend and I stayed here for a few nights while we were spending some days at Cedar Point. The place was better than we expected, not luxury, but not bad for the price, and close to the park. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The only inconvenient, the wifi was not working sometimes.

I saw it was $74 a night when I first checked it, then suddenly there were all deals coming from Orbitz and Trip Advisor, I thought someone died or something and as they sliced the room rate by $20 per night! I should have known that was suspicious, but a bargain it was, so cheap I was. That was a...

Staff was friendly and courteous. I was allowed to check in very late (after CEDAR POINT closed). Pool is small, but okay if only a few people are using it. Room carpet was very dirty, needs deep-cleaned, so bring bedroom slippers. No shampoo or conditioner in bathroom, either. Nice, hot, pulsating shower, though. Nice amenities overall. I stayed Labor Day...

Stopped through for a night stay before Cedar Point. For the price, it was absolutely perfect. Distance from the park is the exact same as the hugely overpriced Cedar Point Resorts (Castaway Bay, Breakers Express, etc.), but price is phenomenally lower!

Rooms and hallways were not clean...at least to my standards. Also had to pay upfront instead of when checking out...that was weird. Breakfast was very limited so we went to McDonalds instead. plenty of parking, thin walls and close to CP. Pay the extra money and stay at another hotel...Maybe good place to stay if single but not with family.

Left someone else's shampoo to use. Bathroom needed cleaned. Commode had mold growing inside it. Bathtub needed cleaned also. Took a shower and was in water up past ankles,...

The rooms had dirty bedding and carpets not cleaned for ages. There was a urine smell in room and we slept on sleeping bags. If you had brought a black light, I bet you would run screaming from this place. I had stayed here ten years ago and forgotten. It was gross then as well. We returned a month later...

We picked this place because of the price and it was only five minutes away from Cedar Point. When we got there at check in time, our room wasn't ready, so we had to wait for ten minutes watching everyone scramble around to get the room ready. The room itself was good, the sheets however were dirty like someone walked...
