I have been staying at Maples Motel since 2001 and never stay any where else while in Sandusky at Cedar Point. Joan and her family are always very kind and it is great seeing them year after year. I usually visit Cedar Point 14 - 20 times a year and end up staying at Maples Motel any where from 3...

Price and location were great. Rooms are small, no phone. AC fan made a ton of noise. If you are looking for cheap and convenient for a short stay this is not bad, IF you can sleep thru the trains. Darn trains went by all night. Ear plugs were a salvation.

We chose this motel based on on-line reviews. It was not what we expected. Arrived about 9 PM, checked in, and went to the room. Found a spider in the bathroom, beetle on the floor, and there were lots of little bugs in the room that would fall from above. One of the blankets was dirty as well as threadbare....

We are so glad we found this place. The rooms, although dated, were very clean! Sure the train went by more than a few times, but we slept well! The pool was great! The staff was excellent and the coffee and doghnuts were a nice touch! Close to Cedar Point! We will stay here again!

My family and I take a lot of long weekend trips and usually try to find modestly priced hotels so we can travel more. This motel was perfect for our needs. Very clean rooms that, even though they were on the small side, provided everything we needed. A very nice pool (also small) for the kids to take a dip...

If your looking for a great value in the Sandusky area, this is the place to go. We did not want to spend $200 plus for something in Sandusky so after looking through the reviews on TripAdvisor we chose the Maples. We knew going in that it was'nt the Hilton and we were aware of the train which actually did...

Our family goes to Cedar point every year and every year we spend too much on average hotels. After reading the great reviews we decided to stay here. The staff is very friendly and outgoing and they are always willing to help. The beds and bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. The one thing that was "bad" was the trains....

We decided to listen to the positive reviews, and what a good choice it was. Joan was very welcoming, and the room was super clean. Our 3 yr old loved the trains and of course the pool. We definitely recommend staying there.

On a whim my boyfriend and I decided to drive 5 hours from Chicago for a weekend at Cedar Point. I had no idea where to stay but saw the Maple Motel on TripAdvisor and decided to take the risk. I could not be happier. Joan's sister Wanda made me feel right at home immediately. The Maple Motel is located...
