This is not our first stay here. We have always been satisfied, and we too like the two entrances. We stayed on the ground floor in the back with our two dogs. The dogs enjoyed being able to see out the French door. There have been many improvements since our last stay. The double beds have been upgraded to two... More

For a budget hotel this one is tops. The have french doors leading to the outside on the main floor. There are also french doors going out to a patio on the second floor. With the door on the main floor makes it very easy to unload your car. There are also hall entrances, so it's the best of both... More

This is a great choice for a budget stay in the Cadillac area. The rooms are a bit outdated, but are very clean and the beds are comfortable. Every room has a balcony, and the ones on the front side of the hotel have a nice view of the lake. Staff was friendly and was able to give us a... More

This is my second stay here. It wasn't as great as my first visit, but it was still good. I reserved and paid for an upper and was given a lower. I don't like having a door that opens onto the parking lot, prefering the balcony upstairs room have. The employees were good, the breakfast OK. There are nicer places... More

There are better choices in the area. For the value this hotel misses the mark for the business or leisure traveller. They apparently have a regular clientele of workers housed here. That's ok and they were quiet,but for 99.00 a night a little cleaning is in order. The room obviously had milk spilled out of the refrigerator on to the... More

Tried this hotel based on trip advisor reviews, we were NOT impressed. It's obvious that there are "regulars" staying here based on the way some contractor trucks were parking. The front desk staff was friendly and accommodating, but that turned out to be the only positive about the hotel. The room smelled musty, and carpet had many stains. The walls... More

Dear Guest: First, let me thank you for your input. Second, I take my guests' inputs very seriously. I followed up on your lead in trying to locate this room but I was not able to. Can you let me know what room number and what dates you stayed? My staff and I work tirelessly to make sure all of... More

This little hotel is next to the lake just down the street from the State Park and public boat launch. I usually don't stay at this chain but needed some place close to our family reunion. The reviews were good and I took a chance. The room was a bit dated but very clean and comfortable. The owners are updating... More

We took a chance on this hotel based on other TripAdvisor reviews. This hotel was very reasonably priced, very clean (my main requirement) and easy to find. We stayed here when we were picking our daughter up from Interlochen, which is about 45 minutes away. The staff was very friendly, and recommended places to eat. The rooms were spacious and... More

What an amazing facility! Everything was way above expectations! The owner and staff care about the facility and their customers! While chatting with the staff and owner, I found out that they have done a bunch of renovations done. They just had a new roof installed and siding. There is new carpet through out the hotel and they are getting... More

We stayed there this past weekend & were pleasant surprised. The lady at the front desk was very courteous & helpful, she recommended places for us to eat dinner. the room was ground floor & we were able to pull right up to the door to unload. The room was a nice size, had a recliner which my husband loved.... More
