Clean & Close To Cedar Point

After reading the reviews for most of the hotels in the Sandusky area, I was reluctant to stay at one of them. However, overall I was satisfied with my stay at South Shore inn. This hotel was extremely close to Cedar Point park, and was clean. Unlike most of the reviews for other hotels, our room did NOT have a musty/mildew smell in it, nor did it smell like smoke. The only complaint that I have is that the room itself and the bathroom were really small. There was not a lot if space once we brought our luggage in, but it worked just fine since we spent most of the day in the park. Also, the walls were REALLY thin. I could hear people walking and talking (and any other noise) coming from the hallway. We could also hear EVERYTHING from the bathroom in our room (every word, every splash)! Overall, I was pleased with my stay. A pleasant surprise was the doughnut/cereal/fruit/coffee breakfast that was provided each morning. I was not expecting that, and the doughnuts were pretty tasty. I will definitely stay here again when my family travels to Sandusky again (unless I plan to pay mega bucks for one of the "park resorts").

Reasonable

The staff was very friendly. The rooms were clean but in need of some updating (peeling wall paper)No elevator. The pool water was borderline cold. I have stayed at better for less. The tv remote didn't work and the room a/c didn't cool well.

Clean, but not worth the money

Hotel was close to Cedar Point. Room was clean. Nothing special about hotel. Contential breakfast was coffee, OJ, cheerios, frosted flakes, toast and waffles. Probably could have paid less staying at another hotel. ($99/night)

Good place to rest

The lobby and look of the hotel exterior were nice, and the rooms were OK. Things were old but clean. Overall it was a nice place to rest for a couple of hours after CEDAR PARK, at a good price.

Not bad at all!

A few friends and I came up for the weekend for a birthday celebration. The room was clean and pretty roomy. The pool was very nice, waterslides were too fun! The only thing missing was room service!

decent for the money

The Inn was really close to Cedar Point, that was great. We booked for 4 people but the room was set up for 2. Two glasses, 2 towels, and 2 very small beds. They were comfortable however. The contenental breakfast was a joke. Two kinds of adult cereal, tea, coffee, OJ, apples and donuts, thats it. Very small, needed more variety. Overall the trip was enjoyable, and for the price and location the room was o.k.

good value

The room was comfortable. Pool was great, and open 'til midnite. The continental breakfast was just plain sparse: no eggs, fruit or meat. just waffles, two cereals and toast.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

there are some great family style restaurants (Berardi's) for local lake seafood close by. i generally stay away from the chain restaurants in favor of the local fare, especially when it comes to seafood (lakefood).
