"Second time stayed there this year"
Good point to stay if going to is lands. 20 minutes to Catawba.Genuine Expedia guest review
I thought the overall experience was good. We had dinner at Salmon Run and service was slow. Our bed sheets were pilled and were uncomfortable, but clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Poor cleaning service"
Hotel setting was ok, however cleaning service was lacking. Maids arrived at 4:00 to clean our room. They asked what we wanted done and I told them to change sheets and sweep and they complained. Left the room so they could do their job and came back to find they did not sweep or change sheets. Complained to Manager on duty however he would not take […] responsibility. Will be staying somewhere else next year! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
First, Double room does not mean a double (2) rooms the wording the hotel uses is very misleading. Second, the hotel charges a resort fee per night that is not stated anywhere when my reservations were made. Then, the refrigerator was broken and the ice machine close never had ice. The game room was a joke and very dirty. Overall disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We really loved the room and the different areas, swimming pools, golf, bar areas, etc. The only downside was that there was no place to eat on check out day as the restaurant closed when you were supposed to leave. We were going to load up and then eat but that didn't work and there is no place around to eat other than fast food. Loved the resort […] though! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice family get together"
We met my sister and her family "halfway" (Chicago/New York) and had a great time with the kids over Labor Day weekend. Plenty to do for everyone. Cedar Point was how we remembered it!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice resort close to the waterfront"
Nice place, very close to the lake in a well maintained green area. A lot of sport facilities, very nice sand beach 30min by walk. The resort is well maintained and the pool are easy accessible from the room. Awesome the pool is overnight open. The room are pretty clean even if there is a lot of humidity. Totally we spent a nice day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, close to Cedar Point"
We had a very comfortable stay at this hotel. The children loved the indoor and outdoor pool. I enjoyed being able to walk down to the harbor and have sundowners whilst looking over the lake..! Some areas of the hotel could do with some upgrading, but overall we were pleased with the accommodation. Very helpful that this hotel is very close to Cedar […] Park, yet you are in a tranquil environment. Would recommend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was very accommodating of our request to have adjoining rooms and a friend who hadn't arrived yet placed in a room across the hall from us. The cleaning staff was polite and courteous when we asked for more towels. The indoor pool was warm and both pool areas well maintained for a seasonal hotel. The beds were small and not the most comfortable […] but did the trick and no sign of bed bugs in any of our (3) rooms. The hotel beach was a distance but awesome. It was a short drive to Cedar Point. Overall we were very satisfied and will stay at Sawmill again if we visit the area again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The front desk staff was not at all knowledgeable and unable to answer simple questions regarding the hotel and surrounding area. The buffet breakfast was very skimpy and extremely overpriced. Dining room staff was unfriendly. The room did not look fresh and clean and the furnishings looked very dated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice facilities!"
We loved the American Indian theme. The room was very clean and comfortable. The resort had the usual amenities such as an indoor and outdoor pool, and exercise room. They also rented bicycles. We took a walk through the trails at a nature preserve next to the resort. There is a Tom Fazio designed 18 hole golf course on the grounds but unfortunately, […] I did not have time to play a round of golf. Maybe next time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Review of Stay"
We had a great time riding bikes, walking the beach, and swimming in the outdoor pools. I liked the park-like setting. The staff was friendly though breakfast was a challenge due to the poor service. Apparently when there is a buffet, the waitresses assume that everyone is choosing the buffet and require no service. It took 15 minutes to finally meet […] my waitress, and that was only after I flagged down the hostess and another waitress to inquire. Overall I would stay here again based on cost, scenery and proximity to Cedar Point. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful grounds with a private beach.Great indoor pool.My kids are already asking when we can go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very comfortable but some hidden fees"
The hotel was very comfortable and more than we expected for the price! The decor of the hotel overall was a little dated, but well maintained. We loved that there was both an indoor pool and an outdoor pool, but we were dissappointed that the little pool inside had a look that gave the impression it was a hot tub but it wasn't. It was the same temp […] as the other pool, and the outside pool did not seem to be heated at all. The room was very clean and the staff did a good job even adding nice touches like nicely arranging my daughter's pillow and stuffed animal in a way that thrilled her. My only other complaint was that there was a hidden charge of just under ten dollars per day for "resort fees" including parking, pool and towel use, ect. It was never mentioned during check in or on this site when making the reservation. Having stayed there we would be willing to pay this fee again if we had the same room rates, but prior to seeing the hotel we probably wouldn't have booked the room if we had known before hand. Again, overall it was a very comfortable stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice location next to nature preserves, fairly convenient shopping, very pretty lobby, nice Indian artifacts, tennis court, golf course, make it a cut above the rest. Only downside, at check out we were charged $39.60 for resort fees for pool towels, parking, etc. This was not stated upfront. We will definitely stay here again. It is convenient […] to Cedar Point amusement park, family, and we were very comfortable. Would like to have microwave in the room. Don't care about a refrigerator, which we didn't have, but it didn't matter to us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice facilities, smelly bedroom.."
I stayed just one day and I don't think I'll stay there again unless they do something with the wet/damp smells in the bedroom. Not sure if we just go "lucky" or they are all like that..Genuine Expedia guest review
We had nice stay. The staff was very attentive. The rooms did have damp feel to them, they were clean and up to date . Wish we had a mini fridge and microwave. Also there really isn't wifi. The service in the restaurant was horrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very beautiful hotel. Nice staff"
Great hotel and staff I don't have time to write a book for youGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, but be mindful of the "Resort Fee""
It's a fairly nice hotel. It reminds me a bit of Mammoth Cave Hotel in that it has similar lighting and decorations. The grounds are beautiful and taking an early morning walk was wonderful. We only stayed 1 night and were charged the $9.95 "resort fee" when checking out. I read other reviews where this is a per-night fee, so beware that the price advertised […] is actually $10 less than it will end up being. If we were staying for a week I would have not been a happy customer. I never did understand what the "resort fee" covers as we didn't play golf, swim in the pool, rent jet skis or take advantage of anything else over and above what a regular hotel would have provided.

"Nice resort overall"
We had a very good time in the resort. It has lots of facilities - tennis, volleyball, indoor/outdoor pools, bars, restaurants, private beach, shopping. It has nice comfortable and clean rooms. Highly recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review
The grounds are beautiful! It was a great place to walk and enjoy. The hotel/lodge was just ok. Nothing spectacular. It felt old. I did not like being told as I checked out that there was a $9.95 "resort fee" that was additional to what I had already paid. Why wouldn't they have told me that when I checked in? It seemed wrong to me but I didn't have […] time to argue with them. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not little kid friendly"
I was not impressed with this hotel. If your vacation IS the resort and you don't have kids, then you should be ok. Considering "resort" is in the name, they have very little as far as room accommodations go. I had to ask 4 times for a refrigerator in our room, which basically wasn't usable the first night anyway, only to be charged for it each night […] which I thought was ridiculous. Not a good thing when you have small children who need milk or juice. They also charge ridiculous gratuities on room service. The staff was pretty apathetic and never asked how my stay was. The room cleanliness left something to be desired; there was still toothpaste in the sink from the last occupant, the bathroom floor was in need of scrubbing, and the carpet needed to be vacuumed judging from the stuff I saw on it. If we hadn't planned on leaving the hotel, and felt like driving 250+ miles just to play tennis on their court, it would have been swell. Otherwise, I would never stay here again. Nice beach tho, and the hot water in the shower was great. That's about it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The over hotel was good. We decided to stay at this hotel because it was closer to Cedar Point then the last hotel we stayed at a few weeks ago. The room was smaller, had no frig, and the bathroom was smaller, but for the convenience we could overlook all of this. However when we checked out we were told that there was an additional charge 9.99 charge […] for the use of pool towels and internet service. We didn't use the internet and they didn't have wi-fi. I don't like hidden charges and never were we told of this charge. They said they charge this to all there guests regardless if they use the service or not. I think that is wrong! Be careful when staying here to ask about hidden charges! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to attractions"
Like other aging "resort-conference" centers. Had to switch rooms because of dampness and smell.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Was nice a long time ago"
This resort is not as grand as it seems. It touts 3 restaurants yet 2 are actually the same restaurant, separated by a railing and a slightly different menu. The other restaurant is in the golf course a drive away. It is situated on a golf course and if you are a golfer you will love this. There is an indoor and outdoor pool for the kids and mom to […] enjoy while you get some swings in. The jacuzzi was not a jacuzzi, yet a small area next to the pool sharing the same temperature and water as the pool. Our room was miserable. It was so humid, we couldn't get rid of the locker room smell. We bought a bottle of Fabreze and asked for another room but the other room wasn't much better. The fan "a/c" was so loud we had to shut it off at night so we could sleep. The beds and bedding look like they have not been changed since 1935. I could actually feel the spring in my side towards the end of our stay. The staff there are wonderful. They have a nice little shop that has snacks and misc items that you might need. We bought cereal for breakfast as the restaurant was expensive. We thought we would be on the water or a beach but we were not. There was a marina near the condos and the beach was a very long walk. We rode our bikes and would have been sorely disappointed if we wanted to spend any time on the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Just an overnight stay"
Ordered and paid for a roll-away, was not in the room. Website posts inaccurate pricing for sunset cruise and does not include cruise in packages. Good luck trying to reach the hotel via phone. Customer service reps were all rude over the phone.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Skip the Inns and stay at Sawmill Creek Resort!"
My boyfriend and I loved the room and staff! Don't be fooled by the dated appearance - this resort is charming, clean, and comfortable. I would definitely recommend spending a little extra money for the in room whirlpool (with enough room for two - nudge nudge wink wink). We did not eat at the resort but the gift shop is the best I've ever seen onsite […] at a resort. We spent a day a Cedar Point and couldn't wait to get back to the room. Treat yourself - stay here!

"The hotel setting was really lovely, the indoor an"
really lovely hotel. The grounds where lovely and both pools really great and the indoor one was opened till 12.go down to the beach its small with white sand and surrounded by trees. The inside of the hotel id decorated very nicely and there are open gas fires burning, I was very impressed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good alternative to motels close to Cedar Point"
The resort was quiet, clean, roomy. Ate breakfast and other meals elsewhere; fast food was close. Pocket bathroom door was difficult to close competely, and slide most of the way. Otherwise it met our needs for a nice room within a few miles of Cedar Point.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Four day stay for a softball tournament in Huron"
Room was smaller than expected and had an angle that caused the room to be smaller versus a standard square room. Fridge did not work, had to put food in small freezer section and use cooler. Rooms are very noisy, can hear every noise in the hallways and lobby areas. Room service was good from Salmon Run onsite. Outdoor pool was freezing cold for August. […] Staff was very friendly and helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Redefine the notion of lodging"
Superb location, awesome amenities. It will be really hard to top this experienceGenuine Expedia guest review
"outdated and under-staffed"
This hotel had 20 year old televisions and worn out air conditioning. Not a child frienndly place. I think they would not like children to stay there at all. Walls were paper thin. Closer to the weekend the hotel was very busy. It was very under staffed for our whole stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel - fair price."
Some of the rooms are a VERY long walk from the main lobby, with no elevators to second floor.Genuine Expedia guest review
This resort had a very nice private beach, lots of property, access to the lake and very helpful staff. The location was somewhat secluded so it was quiet, safe and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for a Cedar Point get away."
This is a great resort that is located just close enough to Cedar Point to be convenient, but not one of the chain motels that attract all of the other visitors. It is clean and comfortable and a great place to hang out when you are not at the park. I have also stayed there for conferences and enjoyed the facilities. Curling up by the fire in one of […] the lobbies and reading makes for a nice relaxing retreat. Walking by the lake and marina is great for some fresh air. There is also a McDonalds right outside the resort for a quick breakfast before going to the Point or getting on the road for home. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Park like setting close to Cedar Point"
We were pleasantly surprised that we found a hotel close to Cedar Point but yet away from all of the crowds of Cedar Point. The outdoor pool is large and the indoor pool area is nice too. We took a nice walk down to the marina and walked along Lake Erie. There is also a nature trail that we walked on back to the hotel. The rooms are typical motel rooms. […] I turned down the sheets and there were a few hairs which told me the bed had not been changed. Yuck. The bathroom floor could have been swept better before we arrived also. Upon check out we were charged an extra $40 in "resort fees" that I was never told about before. When I questioned this I was told it was for WiFi and other things. I told her that I was unable to connect to Wireless internet and found that I needed to plug an actual plug into their table to connect. This is not Wireless. She agreed and refunded the $40 charge (2 rooms, 2 nights). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Facilities and Amenities for the Price"
The Sawmill Resort was a perfect place for our family to stay. It had so much more to offer than we were able to take advantage of on our short stay. We will definitely be coming back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, poor room quality"
The room was clean visually, but it was apparent that dampness was pervasive throughout the room. There was a musty, almost moldy odor to the room, which we tried to cover up using Fabreeze. The Fabreeze worked initially but the strong musty smell was back after a few hours. I needed to wash my clothes upon returning home to get the musty smell out. […] I was greatly disappointed in my stay, as I had heard nice comments about Sawmill Creek. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pleased with our stay"
We decided to sneak up to the Sandusky area for a few days and there wasn't much available to accomodate the five of us (me, wife, 18yo daughter and two sons 16 and 11). We settled on Sawmill Creek and got the upgraded double. Room was clean, linens were clean and it wasn't bad at all after reading some of the posts on here. Yes the theme is quite outdated […] but the facilities suited out needs quite well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
