8/10 Very good

Great family hotel customer service needs improved
We waited almost an hour after we arrived and checked in, for our room to be inspected.. The girl that checked us in didn’t check us in correctly, so we weren’t in the computer yet.. One of our room keys didn’t work and there were stains on the carpet.. Went to the front desk and all they said was “Sorry”..

Room was fine. But in the water park, the shower rooms didn't have enough water to take a shower and the family bathroom's shower area was dirty. Most lifeguards seemed annoyed working on the slides/ropes they would just point when it was your turn to go.

4/10 Fair

It was close to Cedar Point which was good. I paid for and expected a high quality hotel but received a budget experience starting at check-in

Decent enough property, appealing to look at although there is bugs everywhere outside and plastered on every window. This seems to be a problem everywhere though so I won't count it against them. The water park is okay, it's more tailored to small children, not a ton for adults to do. For what we paid for the room, the room is below expectations, not to say it's bad, it's just average.

I have not received such warm friendly service in so long it was incredible! Clean, family friendly hotel. Water Park was a blast for myself and the children! The gals at the front desk were warm, welcoming & accommodating !

6/10 Good

Check in took a half hour. Short line but it did not move. Finally after checking in, room key did not work. Rooms are very basic and missing common amenities, such as paper, pen, coffee maker, and any literature whatsoever about the property and food options in area. There is a restaurant attached to the property, but it was closed. Getting a pizza delivered to the property was ridiculously difficult. The water park and arcade were good. Staff was friendly and area was clean. We stayed here after staying at Great Wolf the night before to compare the two for future visits. We won’t be returning to Castaway Bay.

Staff was amazing. I feel we missed out on a lot of activities because there was no way to access a schedule of events unless I asked. They had no printout when I asked and I couldn't find anything online. I would have been able to plan better if I had a schedule. Staff was super nice and the updates were amazing!
