Excellent staff. Very helpful and accommodating. Front desk offered info for daily outings and contacted orbitz for us when we unexpectedly had to check out a day early due to illness.

The room was clean and very comfortable. I would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is the closest to Catawba island. The view in the back is nice of a natural pond, and is a quiet place in terms of road noise. All the staff I met were friendly and helpful.

We had a great experience at this hotel: - Friendly staff - Very clean - No bugs - Quiet (on 3rd floor) - Nice pool - Good breakfast - Offered shuttle to Put-In-Bay ferry - Close to great restaurants and activities I would definitely book with this hotel again in the future.

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.

GREAT POOL! perfect for the kids & warm. helpful staff!

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.

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.

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.

Great experience, had a great weekend with my friends.

Nice staff; close to Cedar Point and Island ferries.

We needed, extra towels, directions, coffee at off-hours -- the hotel staff was there for us at every turn with help and suggestions. They were terrific.

We stayed at this location because the price was right and it was right by lake Erie. We went to Cedar Point and had a great time. The next day we took a Ferry to Put-in-Bay and spent the day there. The location was convenient to most all of the sites. The breakfast was nice each morning.

Easy check in, wonderful staff very friendly and helpful. They made alot of very good suggestions on places to eat and things to do. if you ever get a chance stop at moni mee restaurant a++

Our trip was good other than the rain which you cant control. We spent alot of time in the hot tub which was nice and relaxing. We also went to see the lighthouse in marblehead. It was a beatiful site by the lake. The dinning in this area was great. We never had a bad meal. The Hotel staff was very friendly an helpful.

The Hotel was right in the middle of both places we visited and was easy to locate. It wasn't the cleanest hotel and the rooms were a little outdated.

basic room and amenities. decent continental complimentary breakfast. located on a highway - most rooms have view of parking lot. hotel is saturated in cigarette smoke.
