From Julie HallWhich resort is the best? I would love to be able to walk to the park from the hotel. Is there easy access to the park from the hotel? I would also like the cheapest option :) There will be 7 in our group- 5 children.

From steve leeIf you want to walk, your only option is a Cedar Point resort that's on the peninsula. No pedestrian traffic is allowed on the causeway. Of the resorts there, I've only stayed at Breakers and it's not terribly cheap. You may need to go with a hotel that has shuttle service if you're trying to keep the cost low. There's a lot better sources around here for Cedar Point than me, so I'll let them take it from here...

From Derek PotterHotel Breakers. You'll pay more for it, but it's worth it. About a 50 foot walk to the park, a beach, nice pools, a boardwalk, and full service in the lobby. I'm not the biggest fan of their cheapest rooms though. I'd go for a mid level package with tickets. The other alternative on the island is Sandcastle Suites, which may be more suitable for you with all the children. It's a longer walk to the park, but still has nice rooms and things to do.

The cabins aren't bad either, but they aren't much cheaper than the Breakers and all the amenities
From Penny BeasonWe stayed at Lighthouse point. The cabin we stayed in was the closest to the park. It was in walking distance from the park and it didn't seem that far. The only drawback is the price. We stayed there in August (2007) and it was approx. $300 per night. The cabin was very functionable though, it has a loft in the top in which we put a qween size blow-up mattress in. There are futons in the living room and a full size bed in the bedroom. The best thing about the cabins is they don't feel like the typical "hotel". We enjoyed our stay even though it was pricey. Just knowing we were only walking distance from the best coasters in the world made all the difference!!!!
