"Good location for staying off-site for Cedar Point"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We were very happy with the Holiday Inn and it’s location. It is right down the road from the park and is the closest non-Cedar Fair owned property. The hotel looks to be undergoing an addition but that didn’t change our stay in anyway. The existing hotel was unaffected. I was pleased with the room and hotel. It was older but it looked like it had been renovated. The room was nice. It had 1 queen bed and a kitchenette. There is no plates/cups/bowls/silverware though. I liked the bathroom shampoo/conditioner/ body wash. It was in larger containers attached into the shower instead of the smaller bottles. Much more environmentally friendly. There was a tavern style restaurant/bar next store called the Thirsty Pony. It included off track betting and had a fun atmosphere. The food & service was good and it was reasonably priced. We liked it and went back twice during a 1 night stay. We’d definitely go back to this hotel. The staff is nice and breakfast was included.

We selected this as we were part of a large group going to Cedar Point. It was convenient, but lacked charm and space. Lobby area was cramped. The pool area was so hot and way over chlorinated. Didn't really feel welcoming, it was just so so. Pricey for what we had and so loud. Not sure what was going on at 5:30am in the hallway, but you could hear doors opening and slamming shut loud and clear. I think if I was to come back to this area, I would select a hotel farther away hoping it was nicer and had more eateries in walking distance. After spending an impromptu night in another chain hotel the evening prior about an hour a way and feeling safe, secure and really well taken care of, perhaps we had higher expectations. Though I will say breakfast in the morning was great, I love the pancake maker and the selection was diverse enough and the staff here kept it very clean and stocked.

"Good Hotel"

Stayed here for two days to visit Cedar Point. Overall the hotel was nice and the staff were great. It’s conveniently located on Cedar Point Drive and has a cool-looking restaurant/bowling alley/kids place next door. I took once star off for the poor construction quality in the bathrooms. This may not be important to most people, but there were some obvious fit and finish issues where things were shortcut. The bathtub also drained very slow which made me wonder if it was construction-related. They are doing an addition to the hotel and I hope the contractor has better quality than the existing rooms. Pros: - Great location - Nice, spacious gym - Nice pool - Free breakfast Cons: - Bathroom construction quality and plumbing

"Bed Bugs"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed June 09, 2019
My experience started off fine. The room looked very clean and I liked having a desk space in it, however on my third night I found a bed bug and bites on ankles. I told the hotel staff and they said that they couldn't move me because they were booked but came up to change the sheets. When two people arrived, they didn't come to change the sheets and instead were looking around for more signs of bugs. The lady, dressed in an office suit, didn't introduce herself and seemed more concerned about the bugs spreading than my health of being bitten and my experience. I asked for a discount and the lady gave the house keeper a weird look. They moved me in the afternoon to a different room that was much dirtier, didn't have a desk and had a horrible wifi connection. They responded quickly to the situation but the only person that seemed to care about me was the house keeping lady. I've tried on multiple occassions tonpost this review on the IHG website and they refuse to allow me to post it. Do not trust reviews on IHG, as they are manipulated and negative reviews are not allowed to be put on the site.

"One Night Stay"

Quick overnight on our way thru the area. If you are there for Cedar Point, this hotel would be a good option as it is close by. We had some issues finding the hotel due to road closures from flooding. The hotel itself was fine. All was clean and comfortable. We did not eat the breakfast in the AM, as it was about done when we arrived, so we went down the street to Dunkin.
