Don't stay here!

This hotel was unorganized and had poor management my room smelled musty. The hotel was not great especially for the price. There were several bugs in our room. However the breakfast was great! One woman in particular went out of her way to make it an enjoyable meal! Thanks Donna for letting us leave on a better note!

New, clean and comfortable

Went to a wedding in Sandusky and options and reviews led me to this hotel. I wanted a nice place for a good price and the value was great. Easy to get in and out of Sandusky.

Noisy on Weekends- Room not clean

Checking in was fine, staff seemed nice at first. Styed 2 nights, the first night there were a ton of kids in the hall making noise a screaming. the room itself had mold growing on the cieling and after the first night they didnt even clean our room, no fresh towels, nothing. Told them checking out about our thoughts, and they didnt seem to care. This hotel looked like it used to be very nice, but has been neglected over the years.

Fantastic Surprise

We were on our way back from a wedding in NY and were planning a day at Put-in Bay. We hadn't made advance reservations and got in about 9:45 on a Sunday evening. The staff greated us warmly and dilligently made phone calls to local area restaurants to see if they could find us somewhere still serving dinner. We were out of luck but certainly not for lack of trying on the staff's part. Instead we enjoyed light snacks out on the patio overlooking the water. The room was clean and well appointed and we enjoyed the great pool, although the hot-tub was TOO hot. The breakfast was amazing, including biscuits & gravy, pancakes and fresh bacon. Really a wonderful hotel to stumble on to. The staff should be commended for their hospitality.

Child Friendly

The staff was wonderful. They were kind to my children and helpful. The pool was nice but the hot tub went from being too hot to too cold. The location is excellent.

Good evening

The check-in and check-out process was a breeze. They had a decent continental breakfast and as far as the room, it was suitable for our needs for that evening.

A pleasant switch

We needed a place to stay for around $100/night while going to Cedar Point for the weekend...but also wanted a nice get-a-way as a couple. The first night we were put in a smoking room and it very smelly and dingy. After complaining to the front desk and trying to get a different room, they said they would change us to a non-smoking room the following night. The second room was VERY clean and VERY nice. My suggestion: Don't get a smoking room!!!!!!

If you are looking for a laid back place to grab a drink, I suggest the Shipwreck bar and grill across from the hotel, nothing special, but very nice people there.
