(Cleveland, OH) – April 2007 - Sandusky, OH is home to Cedar Point Amusement Park and some of the fastest roller coasters in the world. But the fastest thing to hit the North Coast and all of North America is the addition of the 700th Americas Best Value Inn, continuing the brand’s position as the country’s fastest growing hotel chain.

The newly signed 700th Americas Best Value Inn is down the road from the world-renowned Cedar Point in Sandusky. According to property owner George Ruta, amusement park enthusiasts and visitors are already booking their stay at the 100-room two-diamond AAA hotel.
