Stayed on the 4th of July for a few nights. I loved the location, got a room on the highway side with a side view of the lake. Enjoyed the discount at the restaurant next door (along with frequent flyer miles there), walked around the lake. Listened to a jazz band in town along the lake. Saw fireworks from my... More

The Econo Lodge in Cadillace isn't fancy or new, but it's clean and updated. It has friendly front desk staff and the wi-fi speed rocked! It's economical and in a great location. I would stay there again.

Very nice. Well renovated, clean, power outlets for chargers, round table works as desk, lawn chairs outside, exterior and interior doors, free WiFi, coffee maker, fridge (no micro). Lake across the street (too bad I'm not here to fish!). And yes, they have FoxNews.

Bed Bugs!!!! Terrible rooms!!!! Smelt like curry, dirty carpets. I can't believe this is an Econo Lodge with such dirty carpets and rooms. The supposed owner named Jack talked the place up over the phone and then when I arrived wouldn't give my money back and told me what should I expect. Do yourself a favor and stay well away.

This is my third time here in three years. The rooms have been repainted since my last visit. Lots of maintenance and renovations going on. Looks like new fridge, but old a/c window/wall unit. Manager said new carpeting is probably the next project. Wi-fi signal very strong (even in my end unit room) and download speed of just over 16mb,... More

I had work in Cadillac so I needed a cheap place to stay and through a membership discount, this hotel had the cheapest rate. The hotel is definitely on the older side but it appears to have been modified and updated through the years. The hotel actually has an outside balcony area which I had never seen before at an...

Great room layout. Interior corridors to all rooms. First floor rooms also have exterior doors to parking lot. Second floor rooms have balconies. When I stayed here in June 2009 it was pretty good (good enough for me to come back) but is now even better. New owner as of January 2010 has brightened the place up a bit, cleaned... More

My friend and I stayed one night in a ground floor two-bedded room. We woke up in the middle of the night itching all over, only to discover that both the beds were crawling with bedbugs. I managed to capture and kill around five of them (the rest managed to escape almost as if by magic). We continued to get... More

This hotel may be a little outdated, but let me tell you well worth your dollars. If cleanliness is important to you, this is a perfect fit. This hotel is immaculate, they even won an award from choice hotels based on this. They dont have a pool, gym, game room that your children might want, but there is a beach... More

The furniture and linens are dated. I sunk so far into the bed I felt like I was on the floor. The continental breakfast is a joke. No hair driers in the room and I nearly knocked myself unconscious on the "closet" bar, which was right next to the bed. No pool, no gym, but they do have wi-fi. We... More
