Close to Cedar Point and the Stone Pony restaurant, modernized rooms, lobby and breakfast area. (Basic free breakfast, no eggs or meat.) Rooms are clean but small. Micro wave, fridge and tv…and clock radio but no place to plug it in! Bed was small and creaky. Shower water never got warmer than “less cold”

Hotel's Favourite
My family was visiting Cedar Point and didn't want to pay on-site prices for overnight accommodations. This property is located directly across from the causeway and less than 5 minutes from the main gate. The property is unassuming from the outside, but the rooms have recently been renovated and we found the property to be clean and comfortable. In addition to the friendly staff, the highlight for us was the free breakfast buffet, which included an automated pancake maker. Would definitely stay again if visiting the park /area in the future.

We pulled in to the parking lot and were a little worried because it appeared outdated and rundown. However, the staff checking us in was very nice and the free bottles of water were a nice touch. The rooms were clean but it was obviously an older motel. The real surprise came when we checked out and got a phone call from the front desk letting us know that we left an expensive pair of earbuds in our room. They offered to mail it at no charge and we were less than optimistic that we would receive them: But, lo and behold, they arrived. For this level of customer service and integrity, we give it a five-star rating. Thank you, Cedar Cove!

This motel was a great spot to stay for our family trip to Cedar Point. We requested lower level, which we got, the staff was very friendly and were very generous with bottled water. The pool area was nice and maintained. Very quiet during our stay which was nice! Very clean and comfortable. The motel is very aged so you have to keep an open mind and remember that while staying here, but it is updated nicely!

A really Great Hotel in Sandusky. Good location. No good crossing The Street on foot, but thats not The hotel fault. Clean room, clean towels,big room. Refrigiator can start up and be loud. Comfy bed and pillows. Good modern AC. Good noise reduction from other rooms, less from outside. The personella has been really awesome in accomendating me with my request. I got in early and got room quickly. I asked for later checkout and got that aswell for a small fee of 25$. So helpful and Nice personel. I Will most likely stay here again next time I cone to Sandusky. Maybe not The cheapest but its worth The extra bucks for this really good hotel.

Clean room, newly renovated, new wood panel floors in room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had cereals, pastries, bagels, fresh fruit, juices, hard boiled eggs and a pancake machine. Good location for Cedar Point goers, and fisherman. Beautiful view of lilly pond behind parking lot. 220v Nema 6-20 outlet installed for EV charging, ask mgr for details. Will stay again.

We just spent 2 nights here at Cedar Cove and won’t stay anywhere else. We were hesitant because of a few bad reviews but clearly they were way off. AND the pool is definitely not in the middle of a parking lot. The employees were very welcoming and nice. The lobby was beautiful and the rooms very clean. Breakfast was awesome! It was a great surprise. Take a chance and stay here!!

We love this place. After spending big money to stay at The Breakers for twenty-five years we discovered Cedar Cove. Very clean and quiet and you can't beat the location when going to Cedar Point. All the employees are very friendly. The pool is always clean and not crowded. The breakfast is always fresh with many choices and the pancake machine is great. Had a great stay this year and will be back again next year.
