The discounted tickets. Waterpark. And early entry was well worth the stay. Rooms were clean. Staff friendly. Life guards excellent. Only complaint would be the people down from us smoking. Non smoking rooms were what we were staying in.

Lots of spaces to just hang out and be with your loved ones. Very spacious rooms. Loved the water park and everything about it! The restaurants were all nice. TGIF is pretty pricey, but that's not anyone's fault but theirs. They do need new employees, though. Their manager and server were the only negative thing about our whole stay. Great...

We stayed at Castway Bay the night before a trip to Cedar Point (which owns the hotel/waterpark). We chose Castway Bay because we wanted to come up in the morning and use the water park all that day, then be ready for the park the next morning. It was a perfect choice! The price was a great value - we...

Like all the other hotels owned by Cedar Point Castaway Bay was an excellent place to stay in between visits to Cedar Point, but not only can you sleep there you can visit their amazing indoor water park! When I first walked into the water park I was floored. Its huge and full of adventure. It is perfect for families...

The place is decent, but I would definitely recommend Kalahari Resort more. The staff was poor and the rooms look old. We did have fun at the waterpark and have a great sleep though. It is an okay place, just not great.

I took my son and his 3 friends for his graduation celebration. Even though they are 18 they still had so much fun in the waterpark. The facility is clean, employees very friendly (David, Alyssa, and Jacob were 3 that made our visit special). Early access to the park is awesome.

This was a great trip, I will take it again. Everything was clean, everyone was friendly and the water park was great fun. Basically I have no complaints, even satisfied with the price of stay, not the food, drinks etc but I expected over pricing. Lol. Also I thought it was a little of an inconvenience as a smoker to...

We decided to indulge in an impromptu mini vacation with our three children and chose Castaway Bay as our destination. I had great hope for this Cedar Point "resort", but, unfortunately, it was a terrible disappointment. To begin with, this place is nothing but a tacky, overpriced tourist trap. The entire structure is very run-down and there is very little...

Me, my husband, son, and niece spent the weekend in Sandusky. We went to Put-in-Bay and to Cedar Point. We stayed in a room with a view of the bay. The view of the bay was nice. The room was very out dated (the bedding, television, and carpet). Although the decor was out dated, the room was clean. The kids,...
