Today we did the first (and longest) car journey of our road trip which was over 7 hours long. We had two stops (the second of which being Burger king for lunch) before we arrived at Cedar point. We got a clear view of how large terrifying these rides really are (but that soon changed to excitement as Zac was literally jumping up and down). The …
Out of the Adirondacks yesterday and back to the world where my WiFi can get a signal. I have two longer articles that I've been working on and I fully intended to have the first finished and posted tonight… UNTIL… I found myself surrounded by hundreds of hot rods from all over the country. Tonight the stop for some 4500+ hot rods in the 2014, 20th anniversary, Hot ...
... people sprawled along every sidewalk. And I haven't even mentioned what the residential area looked like, the houses were falling apart with lawns growing metres high. Houses had their doors boarded up and some had been clearly broken into and stripped of anything with any value at all. And then we turned onto Jackson street. In case your wondering by now why we were in such a shady town, we were there to visit the house Michael ...
Today consisted mainly of driving with not a whole lot to stop at along the way. However, the scenery made for a nice change from the city. With rolling hills and farmlands dotted with big red barns, it had the quintessential rural American atmosphere. We also visited Hawk Falls in Hickory Run State Park which made for a lovely pit stop. Tonight we are ...
... lazy river. Matt's begged and begges for arcade time and I ended up letting him do it. I went on the flowrider 2 more times (half hr wait) in the afternoon while Matt spent lots of time in the basketball pool. After multiple embarrassing wipeouts, I finally managed to kneeboard! I was ridiculously proud of myself :) At 2pm, it was time to get dry and Matt moved on to the arcade, paying $10 for 2 hrs of unlimited video game play. We found his unlimited play card could ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Breakers Sandusky
My husband and I visit Cedar Point every year. We stayed outside the park at first but last year we decided to stay on sight. I highly recommend the Breakers. The new section that is where you want to be. The old section is just that old. Room was very small and had to climb up a fire escape to get to our room and the there were May Flies all over the room and the window air conditioner did not work. We went to the desk and told them about the problem and they more than graciously moved us to a room in the new section with no problem and no additional charge. Staff could not have been nicer. The price is quite steep but it is worth every penny when a sudden thunderstorm pops up and you can run to the safety of your hotel room on site. AND Cedar Point is the best park on the Planet or in the entire Universe. Love those coasters.
We just returned from a 3 day trip to Cedar Point. My wife and I are in our early 40s and took three children ages 15, 14 and 8. They loved it!
What's not to love??
Our family started going to Cedar Point in 1978.... We have missed just two summers since that date. Currently our family has grown to include granchildren. Each year at holiday we sit and plan for the next year! What changes have been made to this wonderful family vacation. Thankyou from the bottom of our hearts for us to be able to say that you are one of our family traditions.
Lighthouse Point perfect for Cedar Point families
Our first trip to Cedar Point we tried to economize and stayed in town and used the shuttle bus service. Huge mistake. The next trip we bit the bullet and decided to stay on-site. Yes, it was really overpriced but we could come and go all day long as we pleased. With two teenaged boys in tow, their stomachs could handle those rides 24/7 while the rest of us could go back and collapse if need be. The rooms were clean and configurations worked fine for us-kitchen had all we needed to grab and quick bite and the view of Lake Erie was surprisingly beautiful from the deck out front. I'd do it again!
We went the beginning of the summer 2003 and found everything very dirty, especially TGI Fridays. There was urine stains on the outside of the toilets, every table dirty with the staff just sitting around. But it was the only decent priced restaurant at the hotel itself. We woke up one morning to find ants all over our towels in the bathroom. I love Cedar Point and would love to have the convenience of Hotel Breaker's location again, but I cannot quite justify it yet. My husband and I spent over $800 for two days at the resort in a standard room and nothing out of the ordinary. We didn't even get souveniers. I just find it very expensive and not worth the price.
Great location but not a great hotel
This hotel is in a fantastic location for Cedar Point park which we visited for 3 days last summer but it is not a great hotel. It is big, poorly decorated, unhelpful, surely staff, uncomfortable basic rooms.
If it wasn't for the location I wouldn't recommend staying there.
The standard is equivalent to a low budget motel.
Just what is the Hotel Brakers doing with the money they are making off of people expecting a hotel stay worthy of 150$ a night?
Hotel Breakers does have 5 sections to include 3 older and 2 newer. Yes, the older sections are a bit older (built originally in 1905 but since remodeled), and do NOT have elevator access (but they are only 3 floors high) and the staff at CP Resorts to include the reservations staff try to best accommodate our needs. They do have window air conditioning units, and vintage 1960's decor in the bathroom, however for those of us who enjoy an antique room, these rooms satisfy us. These rooms are always clean and are kept up to standards just like the two newer sections. To explain the newer sections: Breakers East built in 1995 is only 4 floors high with elevator access and the smallest room is with 2 queen beds. Breakers Tower was built in 1999 with 10 floors (10th is the concierge floor, access only granted to those staying on the floor). So you can see that the original part of the hotel will be 100 years old next year and that Cedar Point does all it can to please all the guests.
Great hotel but
We just returned from a great vacation at Cedar Point. Hotel Breakers was a really nice place and the convenience of being between the amusement park and the water park was definitely worth the money. I`d highly recommend families spend the extra to stay here.
On a side note, we also stayed at Great Wolf Lodge on Hwy 250 coming into Cedar Point - fantastic!!! It`s cheaper than Breakers and has a great indoor water park where we spent our last day - we were exhausted from all those terrific roller coasters!!!!
Do not stay in old section
Do not stay in old section of the breakers hotel.. It was 140 a night. which I figured would be okay sicne we would be in the parks most of the time.. It was toally Gros.. I mean disgusting.. I felt so bad I had us srive theo whole wa tthere to saty in a dump.. the lake is nice outside.. but other than that.. I could not wait to get out of that room.. Maybe newer section is nice.. I would never pay the price to stay in the new section.. and
the dirt and filth in the old.. is sickening..
