We stayed the 3rd weekend in August to go to Cedar Point and enjoyed ourselves. Our days were basically long at the park and lake Erie, so the run served as place to sleep. We stayed in the suite 239 above the office. The suite had two queen beds and one sofa bed.

Just the basics- juice, pastries and some breads, coffee, yogurt, whole fruit. It is located in a very small lobby- although they are remodeling so the breakfast may be slightly expanded at that point, from what I understand.
