Walt, I booked the Howard Johnson Express (the one at the main gate) and was told we needed a 21-year-old in the party in order to confirm the reservation. That contradicts what you'd written in the FAQ...any ideas why? *** Edited 6/4/2004 5:43:03 PM UTC by Nitro Dave***

There are actually two Howard Johnson hotels in Sandusky. The one near the Cedar Point entrance (Howard Johnson Express North) has a minimum age of 21. The one on Rt. 250 near Perkins Ave (Howard Johnson Express Inn) is the one with the 18 year minimum age.

The information comes from the Sandusky/Erie County Visitors & Convention Bureau.

Uh... when you go to check in and you don't look like your 21 I'm sure they will check your I.D.

And then your out of a room, and don't think most hotels give any type of major refund when your room is cancelled at the desk when checking in. Most Hotels/Motels don't even give all your $$$ back when you cancel 48 hours in advance.

Think things thru before posting.....

Yeah, a hotel will almost always require ID at check-in.

I prefer to offer ego instead.

Hotels and motels have compelling reasons not to rent to anyone below 21. They don't show up, they play bad music too loudly, they run around in the halls, they damage rooms, they leave unreasonable messes for maids to clean up, they don't have the money to pay, they bring in alcohol and drugs and ignore no smoking rules, and they bring in underage girls. All of these actions cost the hotel money, risk lawsuits, offend other patrons, consume valuable administrative time, and take the room off the available list for more profitable customers. Yes, it's sad. Yes, it's unfair. Yes, it's profiling through stereotypes. Yes, one bad character spoils everything for the whole age group. Yes. But no, they're not changing, and no, most of them won't knowingly rent you a room. Most of them won't even rent your mom a room and let her send you to use it. Their top priority is to protect their franchise.

Actually, it pretty much boils down to the underage drinking thing. (although the other reasons listed are somewhat valid)

If an 18-20 year old is drinking and there is an incident, it's hotel property and the hotel can and will be held liable. Just like someone underage drinking at your house. Doesn't matter if you supplied it, you let it happen.

At least that's how my wife's company sees it - and no, they won't let a parent or guardian over 21 "buy" the room for you unless they'll be there all night. Lie about it and the police will be escorting you out if anyone finds out.

There's just too much at stake for the hotel.

Try staying at the Value Inn, east of the park entrance on the south side of the street. It is nothing glamorous (I don't think they even have phone in the room), but it is cheap ($50??), and the 21 year old thing is not a major issue.

Damn it! I was hoping to go to Cedar Point when I'm 18 with my friends and stay at a resort hotel.

Dusk Till Dawn Motel/Hotel on Milan Rd. has before for some friends. It's next door to Perkins, and down the street from Great Bear Lodge.

Stay in Huron. 10 minutes (at the very most) from the park and you can be 18.

We stayed at the econo lodge on Milan rd. about 3 minutes from the park, and I am 19 and my fiancee is 20. It was a nice room much better than the more expensive Howard Johnson down the road which also lets people under 21 get a room. It was only like $40 a night too. Although that was in May..Also, the quality Inn and suites let me and my friend stay before either of us was even 18..Although we did book with a credit card online like crashmando said..it really does work..I have done it. *** Edited 6/5/2004 10:20:14 AM UTC by Kally***

Ramada Inn and Comfort Inn just off of HWY 2 on #250 has let both me (19) and my friend (18) check in this year. Both were pretty darn cheap too; but very nice.
