... to squeeze in lunch with robin and a trip to columbus to see my best friend, kara. for everyone i missed (aunt janelle, uncle bob & aunt michelle, etc.) i'm so sorry! you'll have to blame my parents and sister for keeping me so busy! tomorrow, it's back to denver for me. so excited to spend my last week in my cozy apartment and to celebrate the 4th of july with my friends. 8 days and counting!! xo, ...
... and some of them have long stretches of unshaded queues. And to those of you who visit on a holiday weekend, I have a padded room I'd like to introduce you to.
I alluded to this in the last post, but the real surprise came for dinner. Theme parks are notorious for expensive food, so I planned on leaving the park for dinner. On the way out, I noticed that one of the windows said "buffet".
Now, I'm not sure if ...
It's been raining and thunder storming off and on (more on than off) since yesterday. When it's not raining the fish flies swarm us if we try to take a walk through the grass. So we're hunkered down on Meander getting a few things done ...
... a door, and on the right is the Subway counter, while to the left is a small room with fancy artwork and tables with overturned wine glasses and nicely folded cutlery. Very homey feel to it, and there's only...I don't know, three workers? Just one waitress for the whole place. The restaurant had really good alfredo and veal piccata (me and Michelle, respectively).
Afterwards, we wandered towards Shoreline park, which is just jam packed ...
... many small marinas and a labyrinth of canals with beautiful homes with beautiful boats docked out front.
After a night at the dock by ourselves, a few other boats have docked behind us and the waterfront has a bit more activity than last night. Tomorrow we say good-by to Vermilion and shove off early to head to "The Islands"

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Sandusky Hotel & Suites
I wish I knew why the hotel options at Cedar Point range from barely adequate to no-way-am-I-staying there frightening. But THIS hotel is different from the usual--brand new and it's nice. It's clean. This is MUCH more than you can say for many other local options. I go to CP every year and stay overnight. I've stayed at the Breakers 2x- nice, but not super-nice, and service real, real marginal. I used to stay every year at the Radisson at the end of the causeway which was very nice and convenient, but they've turned it into the kiddie water paradise and jacked up the prices, too. So no more Radisson for me- I guess they call it Castaway Bay now.
When we checked into this hotel, my husband and I were thrilled. It was clean, the hotel was new, and the room was spacious. We were planning on visiting Cedar Point first thing the next morning so we went to bed around 11pm, happy with our choice of hotel. Then around 11:30 everything changed. For about 1/2 hour all we could hear is doors slamming and kids out in the hallway- it seemed like our door was made out of paper you could hear so much!. We called the front desk and were told that a tour bus had just arrived and things should quite down soon. (In reality, the mext morning when we looked outside 3 tours buses full of kids had arrived) The noise finally quited down around 1am. The next morning it started all over again around 7am. To add insult to injury the breakfast area was packed full the next morning when we went to have breakfast. The staff at the desk apologized at check out, but we still spent the next day at Cedar Point exhausted from the heat and walking around the park on only 6 hours of sleep.
After searching forever for a hotel that would fit my standards but was affordable, we choose the Comfort Suites, not to be confused with the Comfort Inn next door. It is brand new and very nice with large rooms- very obvious that the rooms are new. We stayed in a wheelchair accessible room- had a shower, no tub, but was very nice. The curtain had what looked like face scrub on it, but was otherwise clean. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets were clean upon my inspection, but the comforter had blood and yellow stains on the inside- which we took off the bed immediately and should have complained about but we were exhausted from a day at Cedar Point (a 5 minute drive). The room had a couch and refrig. and coffee maker and desk. The TV and CD player alarm clock was nice. The breakfast was ok with make-your-own waffles and great coffee. We stayed in a room away from the street and it was very quiet. They have pepsi cans for a $10 discount at Cedar Point for each person, each day. Also, look in the local coupon book for 15% off the room. You can use the pool next door at the comfort inn, which we didn't use. Overall, for $70, it is worth a try (esp. since the next door comfort inn, which didn't look so nice, is more expensive) and will be back here in the future, though not in a wheelchair room...
This property is about 1 year old, and I have stayed here at least 4 times. Each room I have been in has a living area with a pull out couch, coffee table, full sized desk with free ethernet connection, full basic cable, coffee maker, mini fridge and microwave. There is a 1/2 room divider to divide the living area from the sleeping area. There are irons and hair dryers in the rooms. There is a closet with a small safe in it, and the safe is free of charge. The bathroom has a marble counter top, and nice tile floor. The bath products are soap, shampoo , conditioner, and hand lotion. The windows are big and sunny. The doors to the room is heavy and blocks out a lot of hallway noise, but you can still hear people outside the door. There is no pool at this hotel. The breakfast is cereal and breads, in a very small dining area, which can get very crowded during the summer tourist season. There are signs posted on the breakfast room door saying "do not take food to room" and "all food must be eaten in breakfast room" and the management locks the breakfast room door the minute the breakfast time is over. That means there is no coffee, or hot water for tea from the breakfast room during the day. There are also coin operated laundry machines on the first floor and they work well.
I planned this trip to Cedar Point carefully for me and my daughters (we not only wanted to enjoy the trip, but stay in a nice hotel); took in the advice of the people here (on Tripadvisor[-]) and looked at the ratings for each hotel. At first, it was frustrating not finding anything on Comfort Suites, but I said hey it's a new hotel, I can't go wrong .... and I didn't! My daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was very nice and clean, the beds felt heavenly! And I repeat the hotel was new!
Best Hotel EVER!
I dont know what some people are talking about, but the hotel is BRAND NEW!! It was opened in May 2005 and I even saw it being constructed....as I live near Sandusky and it used to be vacant land so stop complaining! It's not an old building being remodeled...your prob. talking about the Comfort Inn next door was is REALLY nasty!! But Comfort Suites is the best....great staff, very fancy and nice rooms!!
My husband and I just came back from a two day stay at the brand new Comfort Suites in Sandusky. The hotel is beautiful! Some of the other reviews are not very flattering to the hotel, and I really think that at least one of them was not at Comfort Suites, but at another "Comfort" hotel. This Comfort Suites hotel has only been open since May, 2005 and honestly, having stayed at hotels all over the US and other countires, this is a very nice hotel. The common areas have the most incredibly beautiful Italian tilework, and there is a sensational mural behind the reservation desk. I know, this is all just frosting, but it does set the mood for the hotel.
I was a little nervous at first. Most of the reviews for hotels in the Sandusky area made it seem as though you would have to pay $300 a night to stay at Great Wolf Lodge or similar property if you wanted to be assured of a clean room. I was excited to see there was a new hotel, as new hotels are always so clean. Then shocked to see other reviews that the hotel was actually remodeling.
I had high hopes for this hotel -- which were quickly dashed. Imagine this... We spent a LONG day at Cedar Point Park (8:30 AM - 10:00 PM). We arrive at the hotel around 10:30 PM, hot, tired, and ready to catch some zzzz's before our early start the next AM (2 hour drive to Akron to meet friends).
This hotel has the potential to be nice, but right now it is NOT a nice place to stay. The best thing about it is a nice, polite staff. This is not a new hotel as advertised, but an old one that is in the process of being remodeled. The common areas are very dirty (cigarette butts, dirt, and dust bunnies in the stairwells and very dirty public bathrooms). The rooms were adequate, but were not stocked well with towels. The breakfast room is tiny and poorly stocked with food, making for long, uncomfortable lines in a tiny space. At 9:00 am, the attendant LOCKS the door to the breakfast room so that no one else can get in. A 9:00 am cutoff time for breakfast is unheard of at a vacation hotel. The worst part was an overwhelming, foul odor that you could smell throughout the hotel (supposedly the result of an elevator repair). After two days of feeling ill because of the smell, we checked out a day early and went home. We were very disappointed because we usually have a wonderful experience at Comfort Suites.
