Bare bones hotel, but was sufficient for a few day stay

I expected just what I got for the price. A bare minimum hotel but has a great location if your going to Cedar Point. The room needed to be cleaned way better and the "breakfast" sucked but again I think it was sufficient for the price.

It was good

Location was good and hotel was decent. But hotel had very limited amenties like there was no Microwave, Refrigrator in room. Even we could not find Salt in Hotel. Also, so many mosquitoes outside/inside the room. Anyways, trip was good. We had good time in Sandusky.

Decent, very close to Cedar Point

Just used the hotel to sleep in. Room was decently clean.. not smelly or anything but the heat was kinda weird. Just your basic cheap hotel room. Very close to Cedar Point, can see the Causeway from the front of the hotel.

Misleading

The pictures that are on the website are misleading and the room was no where near as big as the picture makes you think. Next time I will probably just stay at a hotel in Cedar Point
