Good location and price. The room was nicely updated and was comfortable. I would've liked a carpet, or some kind of rug, as the floor was not super comfortable, especially after showering, and would get wet. There is also some kind of factory or plant nearby that made the air smell like burning rubber, but that isn't the fault of the hotel - just something to be aware of if you are sensitive to smells.

Thank you for reviewing our property. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We do apologize for the smell of sulfur coming from the quarry down the road and hope that does not deter you from staying with us again in the future.

The towels in the bathroom looked like they were already used. They were on the back of the door, so I think they were missed when they came in to clean after the people before us left.

Horrible,,,,

Decent place to sleep after a long day

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Stayed here with a friend after going to Cedar Point for the day. It was just fine for a one night stay after a long day at the park. We did arrive around noon to see if we could check in early. He told me they were totally booked. I wasn't sure how that was possible seeing as check out was at 11 and check in at 3. So we didn't have a chance to freshen up after being in the car for six hours. (Had to change in the parking lot.) Other than that it was a fine experience. We even grabbed dinner to go from the Mexican place right in front of the hotel.

Good for the money.

Pros: Quiet, price
Very close to Cedar Point (10-15 min). Our room was clean. Window type air conditioner was a bit noisy. Bed was comfortable. Continental breakfast was ok. Only OJ, Cranberry juice and coffee to drink. Bread, bagels, danish and muffins in plastic wrap to eat. I would stay here again but would probably bring some milk in the cooler and cereal for the kids breakfast.

Would stay again

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, cleanliness
Expected a well maintained aged motel and was not dissapointed. The breakfast was adequate with Folgers coffee and juices, individually wrapped danishes, muffins, bread and bagels for toasting in the "lobby" (no seating area, pick it up and go). Check in was quick and courteous. The room was as expected (actually cleaner) and adequate for a good nights sleep after visiting Cedar Point. We stayed two nights and it was quiet both nights. The first night I left a tip for housekeeping and it was left after the room was serviced - not my intent but a plus to the integrity of the staff. I will consider staying here again on future trips.
