    Great room for the price.
    It is an older hotel but it was very clean and the beds, furniture and bathroom are not old or wore out. It was great for the price. Good breakfast. I would stay there again. Great location for cedar point. The women that checked us in was very friendly.

    The hotel is older but recently refurbished. It is clean and the staff is supremely friendly. This is our hotel of choice when we visit the area, this is our third stay here and will continue to come.

    Not the best experience
    WE came to go to cedar point for the weekend. After being in the room for a few hours and having the lights on bed bugs crawled out. This was horrifying. We went to the front desk and the girl was great and called the owners. What wasn’t great was the owners wanted us to leave because they thought we would be more comfortable. This was at midnight!!!!!! My son was sleeping in the car. After a manager came they moved us to a room without bed bugs and he was very apologetic. We understand this happens to no fault of the hote but asking a guest to leave at midnight was ridiculous. They made sure the new room was clean and free of bugs. We scoured and double checked ourselves as well. The owners have a few things to learn but the manager and girl at the front desk were great. The jacuzzi was ice cold as well.

    Bad t.v. and low shower head.
    It was nice place to stay other then the t.v. didn't work. I called for maintenance to fix it and he got it working for about 15 minutes then it would shut off. I had to unplug wires reset everything to get it working for another 15 minutes. Also the shower head was way to low. I had to limbo under it to wash my hair. Other then that it's a good place for the money.
