Stayed here for a Halloweekends trip. Convenient location, close to Cedar Point. Rooms were a little dated and this is a motel-style place where the door to the room opens to the parking lot. Breakfast was decent and bed was comfortable. Service/staff was good, friendly and helpful. A bit noisy outside at night from the people arriving late in the parking lot and the nearby train. Overall good when you just need a place to crash for the night after a day of roller coasters! Will stay again especially in the summer when the pool is open.

Thank you for staying with us at South Shore Inn and taking the time to leave a review. Although we have an older property with a classic open brick look, the interiors of our rooms were just recently renovated with new beds, carpeting, drapery and more.

Really clean, a great place for a family to stay after Cedar Point! Six of us were comfortable in the family suite after a long day on rollercoasters! Reasonable price to accommodate all of us. A variety of options for breakfast, too. The kids want to come back when they have more time to hit the pool and the water slide.

The “laundry” was 1 washer and 1 dryer covered in bugs. One vending machine was broken and the one that worked took my granddaughter ‘s $2.00. The pool itself had all kinds of plaster peeling. The room was so small and the refrigerator froze all our drinks.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Since we are located right by lake Erie we do get insects in the area, however we have excellent pest control, we will look into the situation you mentioned. Although our snack machine is operated by a third party we are sorry it took your money and will call them out to service it accordingly.

The pancake machine was something that I had never seen, tasted decent too. Pool and hot tub were nice, didn't hear kids screaming on slide or adults being obnoxious, from our room.

Very dated - needs more renovations in all rooms - furniture was outdoor wicker and VERY uncomfortable for seating. Eating area for "breakfast" was also used as storage for video games - unsightly.
