Yesterday I told ya all about our trip to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. Tonight I’m going to tell you about the hotel that we stayed at. There are actually quite a few different overnight accommodations in and around the park to choose from including Sandcastle Suites, Breakers Express, Camper Village, Lighthouse Point, Castaway Bay, and Hotel Breakers which is where we spent the night last Sunday.
The Hotel Breakers is rather unique because it first opened more than 100 years ago and still contains that historic charm in it’s architectural detail, Tiffany glass, and beautiful rotunda. Plus I think it has the best location of all the overnight accommodations being only a two minute walk from Cedar Point, Challenge Park, and Soak City. Not to mention it is located on the Cedar Point beach which Alleigh and Kaelyn absolutely loved.
When we were checking into our room at 4PM I was a little shocked that the lobby area was not air conditioned, but was thrilled to get to our room and rest my pregnant body. There are a few different room options including Standard Room, Standard Suite, and Horizon Suite. We stayed in a Standard Suite which was very nice. It had two queen size beds in one room with television, a sleeper sofa in the living area with television and small kitchenette, bathroom, and balcony. The televisions were quite small and for a suite I expected flat screens, but we didn’t spend much time in the room anyhow. There was also no Wi-Fi in the rooms – only in the lobby, rotunda, and conference center, so no blogging got accomplished that evening. However, the beds were very comfy! Dustin never sleeps well at hotels and he even mentioned that he got a great nights sleep that evening.
Now the girls loved the pools and beach. In fact there were two outdoor pools, one indoor pool, three whirlpool spas, and beach access. The only time Alleigh had been to a beach was when she was about 2 months old which she obviously doesn’t remember and so this was the girls first real experience playing in the sand and they loved it. I loved the nice wooden lounge chairs with canopies, hehe.
There are also quite a few dining options right inside the hotel including T.G.I.Friday’s, Tomo Hibachi, Perkins, Ice Cream Parlor, and a Poolside Deli. We actually visited T.G.I.Fridays for dinner…. the Ice Cream Parlor for an evening snack… and Perkins for breakfast. All of the food was excellent, but a little more expensive than at a typical stand alone restaurant which was to be expected.
Some more perks of staying at the Hotel Breakers is that you get complimentary Cedar Point parking as well as great deals on admission into the park. Plus you can design your own package by choosing the dates of your stay, room type, and type of tickets you prefer. So simple!
Every person we came in contact with at Hotel Breakers that worked in the hotel, restaurants, life guards, and more were all extremely friendly and you could tell that they enjoyed their job – it was definitely a great place to stay. And so if you plan to make your trip to Cedar Point longer than one day or simply want a place to crash after a long day enjoying the park I highly suggest checking out Hotel Breakers!
