Really great location just outside of Cedar Point. There are lots of walkable dining options nearby. The hotel has a nice fitness center, sundry shop, pool, and lots of parking. I had the pleasure to talk with Karen and their General Manager Todd for a while in the morning. Such a friendly staff and very clean facility.

We stayed here one night. Bed was comfortable. Staff friendly. We stayed in the newer section and it was very clean. Limited breakfast due to COVID, muffins and fruit/ yogurt. Would recommend a stay here if in the area.

This was a fast overnight in the middle of winter as we were traveling from Michigan to east coast. We found this a pleasant respite with good room accommodations, an excellent breakfast and accommodating staff.

Quick overnight stay on way home from Midwest. Christmas week so hard to judge hotel. Not many travelers as Sandusky seems to be a Summer town. Lonesome in the Winter. Hotel looks to be under some renovation. Room could use new carpet.
Breakfast very good and attendant very nice. She washed my travel mug for me which she didn’t have to but was nice of her to help me.
