The breakfast included was well served under Covid restrictions and much more complete (eggs, sausage) than most hotels.

I enjoy a relaxing bath before bed, but the drain stop did not work;therefore, the bathtub would not hold water.

Very dissapointed

Pros: New construction.
Cons: The rooms would be nice if they were cleaned regularly
Location: Cedar Point, Kelly's island
We stayed here while we were going to Cedar Point. The hotel was new enough, however the cleanliness made the stay uncomfortable. Upon checking in, we noted that the bathroom was dirty (muddy footprints on the floor) as was the floor in the room (used plastic spoon and popcorn on the floor, hair noted throughout the room suggesting that it was not a one time miss on the cleaning). We checked in late and wanted to get to sleep, so did not mention anything to the front desk until the next morning. The room was cleaned a little, but still noted that there was muddy footprints in the bathroom. We got back late again that night and knew we were checking out in the morning. The facility should have been nice, but was not well kept. I thought that this would be a nice place to stay, but I would not stay here again.
