Agree that most are just sort of ummm
Stay away from the rodeway inn on cleveland road. half the rooms only have showers no baths, with 2 kids thats a deal breaker, wont even get into the rest of the room condition. We left a day early a few years ago when we stayed there over the 4th of july, the only good part of that trip was watching people checking in paying 189 a night for a room that i was * i paid 79 bucks for a month earlier. CP was packed I think we got on like 5 rides all day.
We have stayed at the econolodge right at the end of the road across from the thirsty pony, (cleveland road) if you want nothing more then a bed, it will do the trick, it seemed clean to me, we usually stay at the comfort inn down by #6, its a few miles away, but comes with free breakfast and an indoor pool, its one of the cheaper places to stay too.
I think years ago we stayed at the super 8 down infront of the walmart too, that might be a good option now that the sonic opened up there, cheap burgers mmmmmm, the hot dogs are way better than the 8 dollar ones you get a pinks in the park too.
We go down may 24 weekend every year, I have already booked the comfort in down by 6 for this years trip, due to past trips this ones free with my choice points.
