CP Privileges

Friday, August 23, 2002 2:11 PM
What is the best hotel to saty at at CP, I'm assuming Breakers? And for the on site hotels, do you get any in park priveleges? How is the Breakers hotel?

Early entry into the park seems to be the major perk...

I tend to go for budget..........Motel 6 all the way!
I hear the Breakers is really nice and the Breakers Express is slightly cheaper and will shuttle you right to the park. I also hear Lighthouse Point is nice......will have to try that one sometime.

Every motel and hotel chain on earth is located within a few miles of CP....take your pick!
Some even offer Cedar Point packages. The "Getaway Guide" that CP mails out every year used to be chocked-full of motel/hotel discounts, but now they only send out the ones that have discounts to their own motels. Call 1-800-BEST-FUN to get your copy.....there are still some CP coupons in there. Other than that I would check on the net for some Sandusky motel deals. There used to be a site called sanduskyhotels.com but it doesn't seem to be working now? Oh well, have fun!

Is the early entry to the park everyday? And how early? Also, how far is the Breakers from the park?

How far is breakers? Breakers is in the park :) It's the best. My last room overlooked Magnum, and you just walk right into the park!

Even cheaper is the Breakers Express. You still get the early entry, but you have to drive to the park (5 minutes, tops) Breakers Express also can't be beaten for a group rate.

Is everything opened during ERT, and is it an hour before the park opens?

You get into the park a half hour before the rest of the public. When I went, in May, only Wicked Twister and MF were open. But I've heard that Raptor is sometimes open too.

I will tell you that Breakers, if you can afford it, is the nicest hotel anywhere near Cedar Point, bar none, and the added perks are just icing on the cake.

I can tell you which hotel NOT to stay at though. The Radisson Harbor Inn (the one that's affiliated w/ CP, but not on property) is just a terrible place to stay, especially for the money.

The bathrooms were excessively loud (you can hear other people flushing, showering, quite easily), the towels smelled really musty (as did the bed sheets, couch, hell, the entire room), and there were bugs EVERYWHERE. I mean, inside the room. I've been fortunate enough to stay at the Breakers in a room with a balcony, and I know that the bugs from the lake get stuck in the screens all the time, but they never actually made it into the room.

Just a bit of advice though...

When I went last week, we got in at 9 a.m. and they didn't let everyone else in until 9:30. Raptor and Millennium Force were the only rides opened until 9:30.

Edit: Yes breakers does have AC

I heard from an employee at CP that in the old section of Breakers there isn't bathrooms in the rooms. I hope that's not true.

No. There are bathrooms. There is only a small portion of rooms in breakers without ac. Most of breakers has AC. Its just the older section that doesnt. I think CP changes how much time its guests get every week. When i was there all park hotel guests got in 1 hour early. (Only MF and WT were open)

Are the rooms at the Breakers okay, and how about the suites? Are the lines long at all during ERT?

stitch, it all depends, especially when. Cedar Point has been changing their opening times the last couple seasons, so the only way to be sure is when it is released. Most days though, the rides start at 10, ert at 9 and park opens at 9:30.

Sorry for the confusion, I meant on what date does it start to open on weekdays.

My first stay at Breakers was in 1997. We bargained for the cheap rooms ($109 or $119 a night at the time I believe). While the rooms were definitely old, and, as I recall, either too far from an elevator or simply not there as we staired it every time, it did have a wall AC-unit.

We did the Camp Snoopy section in the new part of the hotel last year (in the low $200's a night), and, naturally, it was all set-up with the central air thermostat HVAC system.

So I can't imagine any rooms at Breakers (beyond the dorm areas) NOT having A/C. This isn't Hotel Conneaut folks.

Lighthouse Point is really nice and new. I stayed there this year. They are a little bit farther away from the gate than breakers but these places are nice. They all have a beautiful view of the lake which is fun to sit out there at night after all day of riding and just relax. You don't have to deal with anyone being loud next door or in the hall way because they are all seperated from eachother. They also can hold up to 6 so they are a good enough size too.

I was just there on the 16- 18, and stayed at Sandcastle Suites. I thought the accommodations were ok, but what made it worth it was the early entry into the park. The room was nothing fancy for a $250 a night price tag, but they did have a nice pool and whirlpool, which is nice for taking care of your aching body after a long day walking in the park. The hotel isn't a far walk from the soak city/Magnum entrance. Shuttles were very accessible which saved you the walk into park anyway. Plus I did have a nice view of the Magnum's pretzel turnaround.

I did visit the Breakers several times for lunch and dinner, and when I go there next season I believe that is where I'll stay at. I didn't get to see what their rooms are like, but its the closest to the park, have several swimming including an indoor one, and they have a TGI's onsite. Those combined make it worth it automatically regardless of what the rooms are like.

I'd stay at either place again. They are both about the same price. I am wondering about the Lighthouse Point cabins. Those looked pretty nice but farther away from the park.

Basically you can't go wrong with any place you stay onsite. You get the shuttle service and thats all you need. You'll have no problem getting round the park. I wouldn't stay at the Breakers Express. I was told when I booked my reservation that they don't offer shuttle service from there, and you aren't reimbursed for your parking fee. I can't see them giving me misleading information, but you never know.
