From the outside the Comfort Inn of Bellville looks like a conventional hotel, but it is far from that.  It is home to Splash  Harbor.  Open the doors of Comfort Inn and you will not just find everyday things going on.  This place is a great place for families to stay when visiting Ohio or driving through Ohio on your way to other destinations.  The highlight at Comfort Inn is their pool area, dubbed “Splash Harbor”.  Other hotel pools pale in comparison to this fun splash and swim area.

Our visit at the Comfort Inn Splash Harbor in Bellville was somewhat whirlwind, as we were staying overnight in between visits to two different cities.  We spent the day exploring Mansfield before heading to the hotel to swim, eat dinner, play games and then crash.  In the morning we left in a hurry after the free continental breakfast to be on our way to our next stop.  I can say that even though we were there for just one quick evening it was a great hotel adventure and we crammed in as much fun as we could!

Comfort Inn Splash Harbor in Bellville, Ohio

The Room:

Our room was very comfy, just as the name of the hotel would indicate.  Everything was spotless when we arrived, and there was enough space for us and all of our baggage.  If the beds do not look perfectly made in this picture it is because my family sat down on them before I was able to snap the perfect “we’ve just walked in” picture.  They broke the blogger children rule.  The room really was great, but if truth be told we did not spend much time in there.  We were too busy having fun in the rest of the hotel.

Splash Harbor:

This was definitely the highlight of our Comfort Inn Stay…the kids had a blast!  During our visit the hotel was full of children from a youth group on retreat, so it was very very crowded in the pool area.  That being said we were still able to find a table and the kids still had so much fun in the pool and splash area.  I did not get in the water, because it was full of kids everywhere, so I sat and relaxed by the side of the pool.

Here’s more information about Splash Harbor from their website:

The Comfort Inn Spalsh Harbor is home to the Splash Harbor Indoor water park, featuring a 49-foot looping water slide, dumping buckets, shooting geysers, two hot tubs (one for adults and one for families), water basketball hoops, a floating raft and kids pool area. Up to four water park passes are included in room rates.

Fast Eddie’s:

We could not pull the kids away from Splash Harbor long enough to go out for dinner, so I asked for some recommendations for delivery from hotel staff and they told me about Fast Eddie’s.  This place was awesome!  Not only was their menu packed with great Italian options, but the delivery was super fast.  We shared pizzas, mussels (not really shared – the boys finished these off), garlic bread and jalapeno poppers.  It was a feast!  I wish Fast Eddie’s was closer to Cincinnati!

The Arcade:

Splash Harbor is not the only fun thing to do at the Comfort Inn.  There’s also an arcade to keep little ones (and husbands) busy for quite a while.  This was the perfect way to wind down after our water time.  We even played in the arcade in our pajamas!

It was a quick visit to Comfort Inn Splash Harbor, but that did not stop us from having lots of fun!  Visit the Comfort Inn website for more details about the hotel and to book your own trip.  Also visit my Ohio Archives for more ideas for travel in Ohio!
