The Good - The motel is immaculate. Pricing is a value and less than the chains. For those not familar, Marquette area hotels have been pumping up the rack rates and Cedar is affordable. The Bad- The Wifi advertised was totally disfunctional and we found this unacceptable. Also, we asked for a late checkout of 12:00 versus 11:00 and this... More

The rooms are clean, and the beds are comfortable and firm - no sagging mattress like other hotels in the area. My wife and I love staying here each time we visit our daughter. The pool, hot tub and sauna are great places to relax after a long hike down the Dead River Falls. The Inn offers a lot of... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay at the Cedar. What can I say but thank you again for your kind comments. Sometimes our guests move from room to room each stay, sometimes they keep their favorites, especially our Northern parents since they stay so frequently. Please feel free to comment and suggest, as well.... More

Located on the main retail drag US 41 in Marquette. This is an older but well maintained non chain hotel. Booked through Booking.com for a decent price on a busy parent-student weekend at the local university. Bed decent comfort. Indoor pool and pass available to 24 hour fitness center.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your stay at the Cedar. Yes, our staff works very hard to make sure our guests are comfortable. If by chance you're able to return to Marquette, ask for a different room to try another mattress. All of our rooms are different to try to accommodate guests' varied tastes. Thank you... More

This was our second stay at this family owned motel. A glassed in hallway keeps out the cold & the road noise. The pool, Jacuzzi & sauna are well kept & have the smell of Cedar. While the breakfast is Spartan, the room amenities were above average.

Thank you for commenting on your recent stay at the Cedar. We're very glad you had a comfortable experience. I'm sure the hot tub felt great after your hike. The continental breakfast is more of a "grab-n-go" venue, since most folks need to head down the road quickly. Our lobby space isn't conducive to offering much more and we have... More

this was our first time staying here. Nice room, nice location. Wish I would have checked this place out in the past. We would stay here again. the breakfast was light, but we had planned to go out on Saturday and join our daughter at NMU for Sunday.

Thank you for your comments after staying at the Cedar. We do hear this often from Northern parents, especially just before graduation, that folks wish they had found us 4 years ago. That is very humbling. Since we celebrated our 48th year being family-owned, we do have regular guests staying with us now who are grand parents coming to see... More

We stayed here 3 nights. The rooms were spacious and clean. There were only 2 drawbacks--much of the inn is inaccessible to those who can't climb a few stairs and it can be difficult to carry your breakfast back to the room. The breakfast was better than we expected, but we had to carry our tray quite a distance, and... More

Thank you for your comments after your stay at the Cedar. Since the property spans the 2+ acres we have, it is definitely a stretch to get from one side of the building to the other...especially when you're carrying something, so I agree with the guest who commented about the long walk. I wish I'd been here years ago when... More

We spent two nights in Marquette while traveling through the Upper Peninsula, and after reading the positive reviews of the Cedar Motor Inn here on TripAdvisor, we decided to give it a try. We like staying in local motels and eating in local restaurants when we travel, and we were not disappointed here. We were actually very impressed. Dated, yes,... More

As most of the reviews I read before we stayed at the Cedars Motor Inn, it is an older motel and the rooms are definitely of the 60's-70's era. But they are clean and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is a little on the light side if you are expecting the typical hot breakfast fare that is provided... More

Looking for an inexpensive place to stay with good reviews-this was the place! Kid at Northern, so we knew we'd want to stay somewhere we would be comfortable. TV's outdated-breakfast was nothing to speak of, but I'd stay there again. Good beds and clean.

This is an older property, but it is very well-kept and clean. The inn was just an easy drive away from Marquette's charming downtown. We also appreciated that guests were able to use a local health club for workouts. Would have liked a little more for breakfast than a granola bar (which I can't eat), but the property is close...
