Back to the Future. Much like a trek down Route 66, The Cedars motel brings instant memories of the family's overnight trips your parents or grandparents created during the pre-interstate era. This type of lodging is not for everyone. The rooms are small, clean, comfortable and the decor is retro but the price is right, even if your wallet can... More

When I made the reservation and was told the price, I was a little skeptical about what we would find. The owners are some of the friendliest people we met on this trip, The room was adorable. Clean, comfortable with an electric fake fireplace that threw no heat. We sat in the two easy chairs in front of the fireplace... More

The owners are very nice helpful folks. I knew we had come to the right place when I spotted two pairs of reading glasses by the register. (Men's and women's!). We like to stay away from the chain motels as much as possible and the cedars is a great alternative. The room was very clean and everything was in good... More

We were looking for a clean, and quiet place to stay before taking the ferry over the the island in the morning. The motel was just that. It was dated with the decor but that was also part of its charm. Many of the bathroom fixtures were original as was the tiled shower stall with shower head. The room rate... More

We stayed here on August 1st 2014 and found the Owners to be very friendly & accommodating. The room was clean, the bedding was clean, the towels were new and fluffy. The room had beautiful knotting pine wall, fireplace, frig, micro, newer tub & toilet. Very nice for the money!

This is not a 5 Star Motel in terms of amenities or modern touches, but our experience was definitely worth a 5 star rating. If you are looking for a chain hotel, this is not it. If you want a friendly, charming, "down-home" experience, this is a great choice. The price is amazing, the rooms are clean, the owners are... More

I stayed here years ago so when I needed a place to stay in the area for this vacation, it was a no brainer. You couldn't ask for cleaner rooms or better hosts. Rooms are just spotless, breakfast is great, had s'mores at the bonfire, and a great price. So great I got two rooms. It's nice staying at owner... More

This visit was just as nice as the last time. Room was clean, comfortable and Kathy & Tim make you feel welcome. I met some really nice people (other customers) too! It was neat to talk to them by the bonfire.

We stayed 2 nights at the Cedars Motel and were more than pleased! Kathy and Tim go out of their way to make you feel very welcome. Very clean and has a cozy cabin feel! It was our first time in the UP and they gave us so many hints on where to go!! They didn't hesitate to sit down... More
