Great value!

It was a great value for our Cedar Point trip. It was nice to leave the park, go down the causeway and right into your motel.

Great Trip

The location of this hotel is perfect all you have to do is cross the street and your on the road to Cedar Point. It was a perfect place to rest your head after a day of running around. If you get tired of the rollercoaster action try going to a restraunt called "The Thristy Pony" if your in the mood for some free bowling and lazer tag action. The room at the hotel was the perfect size for 4 people with a tv and very clean. Now keep in mind this is not a 5 star resort but still if your looking for a nice place to sleep and swim I would highly suggest this hotel.

Good price for the location

We were pleased for the most part with our stay at the Howard Johnson Express Inn - Sandusky. The room was clean & it was quiet at night. Our only complaint was the tub. It had jets for a spa. Either it was broke, or we just couldn't figure out how to use it. The hotel was in a great location. We were close to Cedar Point. There was a nice restaraunt/bar right across the street. We would definately stay here again.

Stayed here for Cedar Point

Great hotel for the price. Very close to the theme park. Only downside was that the room given was close to the main office. There would be a lot of noise in the early morning with people getting breakfast and cars and motorcycles passing by. The bathroom could have had some ventilation installed but, no complaints.
