Magnuson Hotel East Sandusky

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This place was awful! If we weren't so exhausted from a whole day at Cedar Point and a 4 hour drive home we would have left. This is NOT worth the money. The room was beyond nasty. Felt unsafe and very noisy. It smelled horrible. Black hairs in bathroom, toilet not clean. Walls discolored and scuffed. Ceiling was moldy in bathroom and room. I have asthma so that was not good. Pillows hard and lumpy. There is a club or a bar in lobby open to 3 with loud music. No parking for guests because of it. Drunk people wandering outside and in hotel. No security features. I won't be surprised if my friend and I csme home with bed bugs. I have stayed at hostels and hotels all over the world that were way cheaper than this, cleaning than this and safer than this. I would never ever stay here again. A rip of to your money.

while this is an older property( possibly a days inn?} it is well kept and in a perfect location if you're visiting cedar point. it is about a half of a mile away from the main road into cedar point so you don't have to deal with that constant traffic. All the employees i had contact with were super friendly and the parking lot was being cleaned every day. would definitely return.

Ok on a budget, beats motel 6 on comfort, but if you have asthma skip it, hall was muggy and funky and rooms have stong old lady prefume smell, no breakfast (mini donuts and coffee only). Could use detail cleaning but overall was fine.

Overall it was a good hotel. It's affordable and close to Cedarpoint.

Great value for the money close to the parkm staff very friendly. Clean room, decent bed, awesome shower!!

This room and hotel were exactly as I expected for the price. Pretty average middle of the road hotel for a pretty average middle of the road price. The room seemed clean and the location is close to Cedar Point.

The breakfast was very disappointing for a continental breakfast, but it was nice to go to a clean room every night. Bed was pretty comfy and it was really close to cedar point!

Great price being it was a holiday weekend just make sure you bring a cooler no fridges

The room was ok! Great water pressure. The continental breakfast was a joke. Much needed improvement in that area.

Right down road from Cedar Point. Pool closed for 2 days and problems with room keys but worth the money.

I think the Hotel needs to update the rooms(out of style)Had mold in the bottom of the basket that held our wash clothes(very nasty) The bathroom needs updated and new everything. When you said free breakfast I was excepting something good for you not donuts,waffles and muffins.Overall it was ok but I just wished it looked alittle better.

The room smell was moldy. The hotel is really old. The sheets were clean.

Easy access to anything you would want to do in Sandusky, fairly cheap, comfortable beds.... Perfect place if you're just looking to a simple room.

The hotel was quite and the employees were very friendly and helpful. It was nothing special but the location for me was perfect with downtown being only about 5 minutes way. There were a few stray hairs that were not mine on the bathroom sink, and I found some muddy foot prints near the tub after I returned for the day. I am not super picky when it comes to a hotel, just need to place to sleep and shower. So over all it was a comformtable stay.

The hotel was fine rooms were not very sound proof, and we were there over the weekend so the place was filled. It was a bit noisy at night. One thing that could improve the breakfast would be to have wheat bread along with white for toast and maybe yogurt also. Other than that our stay was fine. Would stay there again.

I think that hotel is worthy. If you don't have too much things you want. It's cheap and not bad.

Almost everything about our stay was great. The room was clean, and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The only thing I wasn't impressed by was the continental breakfast - the line for the waffles was crazy and everything else was ho-hum. But aside from that, we had no complaints!

Great place for the price nad convenient to Cedar Point

Price was right and close to vacation destination.

Kids enjoyed the pool and continental breakfast was good.
