Bottom Line

The two-and-a-half-pearl Comfort Inn Sandusky has a few features not always found in budget hotels, including a fine-dining restaurant, and an indoor pool and outdoor pool with cabana bar. Its 209 guest rooms are clean and spacious, and some have jetted tubs. But bathrooms could use some updating, and while the lobby is large and bright with decorative art, some of the other common areas, such as the breakfast room, are showing their age. It's conveniently located near major attractions, but travelers with kids might prefer staying at the Quality Inn & Suites Rainwater Park, which includes a water park and a bowling alley.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Busy, resort-like property that draws families and couples 

With an impressive lobby, fine-dining restaurant/nightclub, and two spacious swimming pools, this budget-friendly hotel feels like a beachside resort in many respects. The bright and open lobby has upscale touches like arches and large planters above the reception desk and a nautical-theme sculpture framed by two-story columns and mirrors. Nice upholstered sofas and armchairs in reds and blues create a spacious sitting area in the center. They rest upon a brown patterned rug atop lovely beige tile. The fine-dining Italian restaurant is richly decorated with pink marble and red upholstered booths with black granite tables. A colorful mural of an Italian coastline decorates a back wall. Another large mural with aqua blue water and spectacular tropical fish leads to the indoor pool, where the walls lining it are painted in a festive beach scene. Especially during the Cedar Point season, this casual hotel bustles with tourists enjoying Sandusky’s attractions.

Rooms

Rooms are clean and spacious, but bathrooms are dated

The 29 rooms at the Comfort Inn Sandusky include Double and King Rooms, some of which have jetted tubs framed by mirrors and polished marble tile. Rooms with three or four double beds are also available. Decor can vary, but most have beige walls with matching bedspreads with blue-and-white accent throws. Dark-wood furniture includes headboards, nightstands, desks, and dressers. There are black leather office chairs, upholstered corner armchairs, and gold drapes. Rooms have tan granite vanities, which are either inside or outside the bathrooms. The bathrooms are small and dated, with old-style Waterpik showerheads and acrylic shower/tub inserts. Some bathroom floors are linoleum, while others have tile. Caulking, grout, and floors could use a refresh.
