Hotel staff was great. A very quick and smooth check in. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was very good and had a nice variety to choose from. The small pool area was nice. I would most definitely stay there again.

I just came to south shore in this weekend for a trip to cedar point with my husband and sister. We booked last minute and were unable to get a room at Cedar Point express. So we stayed here. I booked last Friday and never got a confirmation email. Called multiple times Saturday

We appreciate your honest feedback, and we very disappointed to see that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Our email system is automated and an e-mail is sent out as soon as a reservation is confirmed, unfortunately since you had booked over the phone there was a spelling error in your last name which is the reason you did not receive the emails we repeatedly sent out. The room that you stayed in was just renovated this April, this included, stripping wallpaper, repainting, brand new carpet, brand new beds and bed frames and even new curtains which cover the entire window. In cases such as yours we would happily provide you with a new room, however throughout your entire two night stay we did not receive any comments from you. We work very hard to provide a positive experience for all our guests however this is very difficult for us to do without feedback from guests while they are here. We take your comments very seriously and will be making the needed changes to improve our overall guest experience.

Great value for your money. Older building, but the room was nice. Everything was clean and well maintained. The plumbing is obviously old and could use some work. Low water pressure and touchy temperature control, but it was still useable.Only real negative was that the door

Location to Cedar Point is outstanding - right around the corner once you get on the mainland. We went during Halloweekend which would not be as busy as the summer time so the exterior parking lot was quiet. Not sure if the outside would be louder during a busier time!

They had endless coffee, along with tea. Mini muffins, bagels, toast, mini donuts, two kinds of cereal and make your own waffles along with apples and bananas. If you are looking for more there are some great places near by that you can get breakfast cheap.

Our room had dispensers for the shampoo/conditioner, soap, and I think there was one for lotion. However, I am uncertain if they offer other toiletries at the front desk.

"I don't know if they have an elevator for the outdoor rooms, so ask for first floor if climbing a flight of stairs is a hardship."
"We liked the poolside rooms on the first floor, with an exterior door to the parking spaces right outside your room to step out and unload."
"All rooms are good"
"Rooms by the pool are the best"
"we had the corner room right over the front desk but you couldn't tell - super quiet and highly recommend."
