We stayed at this hotel over Halloween it was nice for the price, dated but clean. The staff was friendly and efficient. It was super close to CP so that is the reason we choose it rather than pay nearly $300 for the same thing across the street. Only problem was the train at night it wakes you up in...

Honestly we have probably stayed here 10+ times in the last 15 years because of it's GREAT LOCATION right next to Cedar Point, and of course the great price! I stayed here the last weekend of September. I was pleasantly surprised to find the rooms updated! Everything was a lot newer and cleaner than previous stays! Beds were incredibly comfortable....

This was a quick trip, so we needed a room asap. Bedrooms were clean , but bathrooms were not. The couch was sunk in and refrigerator would not close. Not what I'd expect from a Howard Johnson property!! Needs to touching up around the building. Not to mention there was no room service during our stay.

I recently stayed here for 1 night while attending Kalahari and Halloweekends at Cedar Point. I had no issues other than the refusal of the staff to upgrade my room. Pretty much your run of the mill value Motel.

We loved everything about this hotel. Nothing to report bad. The hotel was pretty decent, the breakfast room was quiet small, but it was nice and clean. The staff were friendly and you won't be disappointed at the price of hotel.
