Terrible hotel!
It wasn't a good stay at all! First when I checked in the front desk guy scared me by saying my second night stay wasn't paid for and I needed to contact hotels.com to work it out. He should have known what your polices are and not scare people by what he says. I asked for a non smoking room and as far away from current smoking rooms. When we got to the room, it smelled very musty and smoky. In the room we found it very dirty and problems with it. The phone had been ripped out of the wall, the air conditioner was leaking, the walls had holes and cracks in them. As we were in the room, someone swiped into our room to enter. It was a good thing we had the security bar on. When I confronted the hotel guy about it he laughed it off and said he had rented it out by mistake. The next day we went for their continental breakfast. It isnt even what I call a breakfast. It was cereal and donuts and coffee/juice. The coffee wasn't even made. On the second day of breakfast it was still the same coffee from previous day. The milk and juice wasn't on ice to maintain its proper temperature.

Wont go back.
The washroom floor had hairs from previous guests still on it. There was a large hole in the washroom wall where it appears a dispenser used to be. Our bed was higher at the bottom than the head so we had to sleep with our head at the foot of the bed. The overall condition of the hotel was rather run down and disheveled. The free breakfast consisted of 7 donuts, a choice of Fruit Loops or Frosted Flakes (which look ancient) a half gallon of milk sitting on the counter not on ice and a quarter jug of orange juice (sitting out unrefrigerated with the milk). Needless to say we had breakfast somewhere else. When we left at the morning for Cedar point we were presented with a no left turn traffic sign (thats the direction Cedar Point is...) so we had to turn right and drive down before performing a u-turn. All in all rather diappointing. With all this it made the economy price of the hotel still seem too much.

My stay was absolutely terrible! Actually I didn't even stay. The room was disgusting! There were ants everywhere! The comforters had stains all over them! The room had a terrible odour! There was hair all over in the bathroom sink and tub! It was awful! I actually slept in my car! It was terrible! Disgusting!

Beds are amazingly comfortable
I have stayed at the motel each time I travel to Sandusky. I like it. I know what to expect each time I am there. The location is great. Breakfast is simple. Coffee is hot. Staff are friendly and accommodating. I have reason to believe their check-in system needs upgrading but that is out of staff's hands.

Go somewhere else.
Room stunk. Water out of the shower was warm at best. Had to have key card recharged every night to get in room. Had to slam door to get it to lock. Deadbolt did not work. Night clerk was more focused on whoever he was talking to on his phone, not that you could understand him anyways. Only good points was a newer TV and a fairly comfortable bed. This used to be a decent bed and shower close to Cedar Point last I stayed here a few years ago. Now it is a dirt hole. I do not expect much from a cheap hotel, just a clean room/bed and shower. But this is a dirt hole. Never again.
