Cedar Point Resorts

I searched and found nothing, so what would you say is the best resort to stay at while at Cedar Point?

I have always thought it would be cool to stay at the breakers something about the old style Hotel. But many like the Breakers express.

Also, do any of the Cedar Point Resorts not allow you to enter to enter the park early. BTW, how early do they let you enter the park.

I stayed at the Breaker's during my stay for CoasterMania earlier this month, and while the hotel is by far the most expensive in the area, it was beautiful. The room was gorgeous, with a view of TTD, Power Tower, and Magnum!! They gave me and my girlfriend a pass to show to get early entrance into the park. I found the best entrance, for me, was to go to their boardwalk (by the pool and hottub) and to walk down the walk to the park and go in the entrance there. I can't remember where that brings you out, but it was very confienient for me. I highly reco' the Breakers!

Breakers is a very nice hotel. It has early entry which allows you to enter the park at about 9 am.

It all depends on what you're looking for. Those who choose Breakers Express probably do so because it's the only Cedar Point resort that won't run into the three figures a night. It's offsite so it's the least convenient, but you do get all of the perks (early entry, cost saving packages).

The most convenient is the original -- Breakers. But if you're going in a big group staying at Sandcastle Suites will give you more room for the same amount of money as Breakers and the coolest, though furthest away from any of the park entrances, is the Lighthouse Point collection of cabins and cottages.

I've gone with Breakers all three times that I've done CP but that is mostly driven by the fact that I've got two young kids in tow. Being just steps away from the park is a serious perk in my case. But if I was younger -- or my kids were older -- I'd love to give Lighthouse Point a shot.

The Breakers is REALLY nice, and of course, one of the more expensive. If you can afford it, stay on site, but be warned. The Sandcastle is a lot further away from the park than you'd think. The closest rooms to the park are right by Magnum's pretzel (in fact, I stayed in one of those, which was really cool), but to get there, you have quite a hike from the Magnum exit.

But let me warn you. Do not, under any circumstances, stay at the Radisson off the point. Breakers Express is fine, but my stay (last year) at the Radisson (which is, of course, affiliated with Cedar Point) was right out of National Lampoon. NOTHING went right with the room. I can't even begin to list the problems we had.

Breakers Express is nice, but they really need to offer free parking at the park. I stayed at Hotel Breakers a few years ago... very nice, but expensive.

Unless they changed that this year, we always got our parking refunded when we checked in at breakers. Then they gave us a tag that had our checkout date on it as the experiation date, that way we had a free parking pass.

Fury - you're right, you get your parking refunded at the Breakers, but I think that the issue was with the Breakers Express.

Which, unfortunately, I don't have a good answer for.

Paris: we stay at Lighthouse exactly *becauase* we have small kids (2 and 4). Having separate rooms for parents and the kids is a huge win during naptime/early evening, and there's much more functional room than in a Sandcastle suite.

We bring umbrella strollers that the kids ride in during transit: from LP to the gates, and between the major "kid areas" in the park. Once we're at a kid area, the strollers get left in an out of the way corner somewhere.

This year, we also brought the coleman stove. Pancakes and sausage each morning for breakfast--yum!
