The online evaluation of this property does not match my experience. This property is a 11/2 star place, 2 stars at best. Small, outdated rooms, exterior entry, not a comfortable place for families.

Sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us, we are already in the process of installing new AC units in all the rooms, as they are designed to cycle on and off to maintain a consistent temperature in the rooms, however i am sorry this disturbed you. We take cleanliness very seriously and when any issues are brought up to us, our first goal is to work with guests to correct them. We have a strict no smoking policy and will be investigating the odor you mentioned.

We had a great experience at Cedar Cove! The property is a bit older, but the rooms have been updated. The price was perfect. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff were pleasant. Right outside the entrance to Cedar Point. After checking out, I received a text from the hotel indicating I had left my glasses behind. We were already 2 hours away. They offered to mail them to me and did not charge me for the shipping, which every other major hotel chain has required. Overall, it was a great stay and I would stay here again on future visits to Cedar Point.

I liked the lake behind the hotel. Enjoyed watching the fish jumping out of water. The continental breakfast is good. The powdered donuts were the best!!!!! The 2 beds were comfortable, room was nice and spacious, but there was no microwave or refridgerator.
