  • Very nice hotel with an indoor water park, definitely had a good time. The sheets on one of the beds was not changed though, we found nasty food stains and even some crusted food on the sheets and blanket. Luckily they store extra sheets and blankets in the room so we were all set on that. Other than that no real complaints.
  • It was a nice hotel. Nothing to complain about, nothing really exciting or impressive. The indoor water park is awesome. The water slides are more fun than the ones at the Cedar Point water park. They have this awesome water coaster and a few other water slides that are good for adults, but the rest of the water park is very much for kids and families- the wave pool only went to 5 feet, but worth it when you buy the Cedar Point package.
  • My family and I just recently stayed here for our Cedar Point weekend. The hotel we got was okay. The beds we slept on were terrible. The blankets they provided were terrible and the pillows were terrible. We got a two bed. But in a separate room were bunk beds and a few of us stayed in there. Thats what was terrible. Everything else was fine.
  • This is definitely a one star hotel. "Dust Bunnies" hanging from the ceiling (first time ever seeing that). Pretzels under the sheets of one bed. Bedspread was so stained we didn't use. The water park is terrible. The water is not heated. It is freezing cold in the water park. It doesn't look like they have painted the pool bottoms since they have opened. The strips in the cement are almost completely covered in mold. The elevators are very slow. We used the stairs and it appears no one cleans them. Would not recommend this place. The only reason we stayed because our daughter wanted to stay. I will just disinfect everything when we get home!!!
  • Stayed while going to cedar point. Indoor water park was a nice finish to the end of the day. Ticket package included parking pass with in and out privileges. Great savings. Room was nice. Staff friendly.

Where to stay in Sandusky

Most of the accommodations in Sandusky are clustered around Castaway Bay to the east of downtown. From here, it's a quick drive up to Cedar Point Amusement Park, and you'll find plenty of hotels, motels, and campgrounds. Some establishments offer packages that include tickets to the park. The options in the historical downtown remain more limited, but a couple of charming inns and bed and breakfasts take you away from the bustle of the places that accommodate park-goers. Regardless of where you choose to stay, make reservations as far in advance as possible if you plan to visit during summer.
