Close to Cedar Point

Would not recommend Wed, Oct 14, 2015
The best thing about this hotel is the proximity to Cedar Point. I had to take my shoe off just to remove the spider webs covering the door to the hotel room. Once inside it looked nicer than we had expected, until we found Mountain Dew bottle caps underneath the bed and bobby pins in the bathroom. Spiders and other insects were also in the room and I had to remove what I could see. The staff was nice when addressing the concerns.

Don't

Would not recommend Sat, Aug 8, 2015
When we pulled in to check in, the maid was standing outside of a room with a cigarette hanging out of her mouth. Two individuals pulled up looking like they were making a drug transaction. I was not comfortable staying there with my 3 children. We canceled and went to the Great Wolf Lodge instead.

Baymont Inn Review

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 28, 2015
OMG--take this off your list! It was old, run down and FILTHY. I could see daylight through the door and the bugs were horrendous. I did not feel safe. There were rusty waterspots on the ceiling and the bathrooms had mold in every corner. The pool was also dirty. The staff were great and the fourier looked recently rennovated. Boy was I shocked when I got into the room. We ended up getting our money reibursed (I hope) and then went to a different hotel.

Cedar Point Trip

Would recommend Wed, Jul 8, 2015
My wife,daughter and myself went to Sandusky with other family for a trip to Cedar Point over the Fourth of July.The Baymont Inn was one of the cheaper hotels within 1/4 mile of the park entrance.At 123.00 dollars the room was clean but dated .We got there before check in and were allowed to put our things in our room..the staff was courteous and friendly but after returning from our trip we noticed no towels in the bathroom no coffee for the morning but then again don't expect much for that price.. just convienience in location to the park.

Much Better Than Expected

Would recommend Tue, May 26, 2015
Sandusky is not known for having great inexpensive hotels, but I was pleasantly surprised by the Baymont. It is super close to Cedar Point. The staff was really nice and had some great information for visitors. The rooms have definitely been renovated and updated. It was really nice. The bed was very comfortable. It was much better than I was anticipating. I would definitely stay there again!

Cedar Point stay

Would recommend Wed, Aug 20, 2014
Basic spot-- dated, but clean. No frills, but good enough for a night. There aren't really any super nice or modern places to stay around cedar point, so there is no reason to spend a ton. This place does the trick.

Perfect Cedar Point hotel

Would recommend Sat, Aug 16, 2014
The hotel staff from the front desk to the housekeeper were friendly, cordial, and helpful. Breakfast was not too fancy but for a free meal, why complain? My kids LOVED the waffle machines and thank goodness they have two! All other hotels we've stayed in had one and we would all finish our meal at different times while waiting for waffles to cook. The only negative I have is that it searched with filters and wanted a hotel with a fitness room. They DO NOT have a fitness room. Otherwise, we had an enjoyable stay.

It's a sleeping room...

Would not recommend Tue, Aug 12, 2014
I'll begin with the positive side of things: the room and furnishings were nice, modern, and comfortable. So if you're simply looking for a sleeping room, this property could be a great find. However, understand that the building itself is very old and built in the old-style of "motels" i.e. you enter the groom directly from the outside, the bathroom facilities and hanger (no closet) are open and visible from the sleeping room. I had reserved two rooms: a king and two doubles. When we arrived, only doubles were available. The night manager was not well trained and had no idea how to make changes in their reservation/booking system. He also had very poor "people skills." In fact, there was nobody at the front desk when we arrived (~10pm) for 15-20 mins because he was the ONLY person on duty and he was doing something else. Bugs are constantly in the room because the room is entered directly from the outside and the property is adjacent to Sandusky Bay. Neither of our rooms were cleaned after our second night. The breakfast area is small and cramped, and they serve only a continental breakfast -- which is OK if they would've simply made that clear. Problem is that they're not near any breakfast restaurants -- you have to head south quite a way on Hwy 250 to find some. In short, if you're simply looking for a sleeping room with a comfortable bed, this could be your answer. If you expect a little more, I suggest you consider the newer hotels a little south of Sandusky on Hwy 250 near Sandusky Mall.

Dining

Most restaurant options are south of the hotel 10-15 mins (depending on traffic) near Sandusky Mall.
