Stayed here in a visit to Cedar Point. Excellent hotel for a decent rate. Staff is extra friendly, and maintenance come to the room to fix the tv quickly. I pressed a button on remote, and couldn't figure out how to get the channels back. There are also a Mexican & a Chinese restaurant right in the parking lot. Quick...

Very good experience, especially for the price point. Location was good overall, but with the property sandwiched between a restaurant and an entertainment center light and/or early sleepers may experience difficulty. Room was in good shape, with comfortable beds and pillows and while it had been updated, the bathroom did not receive the same refurbishment. Microwave, fridge, flat screen TV...

The Econo Lodge Inn & Suites South, Sandusky is conveniently located on Milan Road about 10 minutes from Cedar Point Amusement Park. My son and I spent the entire day (11 hours) at Cedar Point Amusement Park and needed a place to spend the night. The hotel is very inexpensive ($45/night), clean, quiet, and has a friendly staff. It includes...

Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Nice amenities in the room except for iron and ironing board, but just call the front desk and they will bring you one. Free Wifi was good. Nice size room with two double beds.

Stayed here during a trip to Cedar point. It was clean and roomy enough. I am not giving this 4 stars because it is the Ritz but because of what it is, it is a nice place. Nothing fancy but the staff was friendly and it was clean. The "breakfast" was in the lobby which is one room and it...

We stayed here in August and was looking for a cheap and clean place to stay. This place fit the bill and was very close to Cedar Point. Right near Goofy Golf which was never open for us and another kid attraction. We had a nice stay and the folks at the front desk were great. Thanks!

I knew we took a gamble on this choice because of the price. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was typical muffins and pastries and some cereals that you can take back to your room on a tray. The room was not cleaned very well. There were hairs on the bathroom floor and spider webs in the...

When booking this hotel I was told they are going through a renovation process. The only thing that was renovated was fresh paint! Dirty Carpets, bathrooms with sticky floors, and horrible bedding! (bring your own blankets). Our room was on the backside of the hotel which doesn't give you a very warm feeling, especially at night. People banging on walls...
