  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities


It was ok.

4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

Water park was fun

The water park was fun, but the lifeguards at the wave pool were extremely rude to the kids. Completely unnecessary to yell the way they did. The rooms need updated, the beds are small and bathrooms are old. Did enjoy the bay view and the balcony.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

The hotel is nice, very convenient for Cedar Point. Breakfast was poor, better to go elsewhere.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort

No sheets, dirty carpet

Carpet was gross. Shower curtain was filthy with make up and fingerprints and tub had no plunger to hold water so you could see the mold buildup in the drain. Pull out chair/bed had no sheets, so I called front desk. Girl was rude, it was late, but my 6 year old had nothing to lay on. There was a blanket in the dresser so we used that to cover the bed and she covered up with a blanket we had in our car. No sheets were ever delivered to the room. I understand that this is a busy place, but when your specific business is hospitality, keep the place clean and be pleasant to people when they need something.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

My grand kids loved the water park. However, the water park staff were not at all friendly and frankly several of them appeared to be very unhappy and even angry. The attitude from the staff is “ I could care less.” The faucet in our room leaked all over the counter, the toilet seat slid around and the fridge made a loud annoying humming sound.
