How are they?
I liked Breakers Express and thought the price was competitive.

I like Breakers Express for the cost factor, but I also don't mind spending the extra money to stay at Breakers or SandCastle on the point. An advantage in staying at a CP hotel is getting in 30 minutes early for ERT on MF or WT.
And, when staying on the point, it's really nice to be able to go back to the room at any time to chill out for a while, or to change out of wet clothes after hitting wet rides. Very much worth the cost in my opinion.

What is overprized? In any event, they are not overpriced when you take into account supply and demand, location, etc. Disney's All Star Resort is approximately $89 and it really isn't anything more than a themed Knight's Inn. However, it is clean and the location is right on property.
Since the CP Resorts generally sell out all summer long, I would say the price is right. Anybody want to put up $1000 a night for the Presidential Suite in the Tower?
When I went to The Point in August of 2000, I stayed at the Maples Motel which is about a 1/4 mile or so from the eastern causeway (I took the west one for the better view of the park). This place, although not a Cedar Point hotel, was one of the friendliest and cheapest places I've stayed at. It is family owned and operated. When I checked in after my day at Six Flags Ohio (hehe) the lady at the desk, who also owns the place, offered me some donuts at my arrival. She also gave me a two day park ticket discount of $10 dollars off. All this and I hadn't even paid yet. My single room cost about $53 a night! A---mazing, for Sandusky! Remember, it is a motel, a little small, but they make up for it with the family owned atmosphere. I found out about this place on the coaster zombies webpage.
www.coasterzombies.org they should have an ad for it at the bottom. I will always stay at this place each time I go.

You pay for convenience, no question about it. I've enjoyed staying there year after year, and I only live an hour away to begin with. I can't get enough of it.
The Breakers suites are best in my opinion. Having two rooms and a screened-in patio is very cool. Lots of room to stretch out.

I only get to go once a year, so I stay in the Breakers. Yeah, it's expensive, but hotels are the one thing I won't skimp on when I'm on vacation. I love staying on the beach! It is so nice being able to walk back to the room to change, eat or rest. We also drag all of our food up there with us, so that saves quite a few bucks over three days.
I like Sandcastle for CoasterMania, at least :) Yes, it's pricey, but for the convenience it's worth it to me.
I DO want to get a group together and check out Lighthouse Point some weekend, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

All but Breakers Express are on the park penninsula. Beakers express is just a short drive away (just .5 miles -or so - across the causeway)
