This is not your average Econo Lodge. It was recently updated, very clean and the check in personnel were very friendly. It was the perfect place to get in late for sleep and then take off to Cedar Point.

Those are about the only two good things we liked about the place. The bathroom is my biggest complaint. I have never used a toilet with less room, plus the toilet was the smallest I`ve ever seen. We are not big people but I wonder how somebody 200lbs would even use it. All plumbing fixtures looked like they were 40...

I was looking for a hotel just to sleep in after a day at Cedar Point with my sister. This place was excellent! I usually stay in three or four star hotels, so I have pretty high standards. The staff was the best and the room was so clean! The only reason it didn’t get a five from me was...

To start and sum things up, yes we absolutely would stay here again, for those who just want a yes or no. Coming up to the building, it looks sketchy and dated....but don't judge the book from the cover here! The staff was friendly, around the clock, the room was clean, 2 bottles of water are waiting for you which...

My biggest thing anywhere I stay is cleanliness. I was worried when I got to my room as the exterior smelled of urine, but my worries were unfounded. The interior of the room was very clean and I was pleased with the updated decor. The staff was friendly and the pool was clean. Continental breakfast was minimal, but good for...

I booked this motel just to basically have somewhere to sleep due to visiting kellys island and taking the Goodtime cruises. We were a little skeptical at first but used it only for sleeping purposes. It's by no means fancy but for the price is a great place to stay if your going out and having a good time and...

Affordable hotel and clean rooms. Friendly staff. The building is a little outdated, but they are in the process of updating. Only problem was the air conditioning did not quite work properly. It was stuck on "eco" and it would not turn on unless the temperature outside was higher even though the room was muggy and warm. I think that...

After some cosmetic upgrades (inside and outside) this hotel would be great. The room itself was clean and spacious. Near Sandusky mall and a lot of restaurants. The hotel itself was quite all one floor. About 10 minutes to and from Cedar Point. I liked that due to the fact families were not at the hotel. Would stay again, the...

Stayed longer at Cedar Point than expected & booked it last minute so we didnt have to drive home that night. We weren't expecting much for the price, just hoped it would be a clean room to grab a couple hours sleep. However upon checkin, we found out it's under new management and has had lots of recent renovations/upgrades. We...

For what it looks like on the outside I was amazed at how clean it was on the inside! Bed was comfy, and the small problem we did have was quickly and promptly corrected! As a place to rest your head after a long drive this is an affordable and nice place to stay! Totally will be staying here again!
