The Cedars Motel has what you need to vacation in St. Ignace. It is a CLEAN motel to rest your head at the end of a day of sightseeing. Tim & Kathy were a great help with explaining the area attractions and how to get there, and any construction that may delay you. The kids loved sitting by the fire... More

I love this place. The owners are great people that make everyone feel welcome. It's always clean and cozy. We stay here at least twice a year, and every time we make new friends. The nightly bonfires and s'mores brings everyone together like family. This is the only motel I will stay at in St. Ignace, I love this place.

We have been staying at the Cedars Motel for many years. And we won't stay anyplace else if we can possibly help it. Tim and Kathy Nolan are the greatest motel proprietors around. They go the extra mile for their guests. Every night we all gather around the campfire and share our experiences of the day. And during the car... More

The Cedars isn't fancy but it is a short walk to the ocean and convenient St. Ignace and Mackinac Island. It was the perfect place to base our trip to Mackinac all the surrounding area. We hope to go back soon.

I have stayed here twice. Fantastic towels, nice owners. Most elegant in St Ignace and most economical. It is close to the casino. If you come with children they will light an evening fire and provide them with all they need for Som'mores.

My cousin, Brenda, stays here every time she comes to St. Ignace, if a room is available, so my friend, Tamara, and I tried it out. Tim, we didn't get to meet Kathy, was very nice and very insistent that if we had any drinks at the casino, we were to promise to call him to come and give us... More

Tim and Kathy are loving hosts. The rooms are spotless and have a up-north feeling. Smores at the bon-fire every night and breakfast in morning. Easy on-easy off I-75. Very close to casino. We had an unforgetable time.

The price is right, very clean and friendly. Rooms are small, but the evening bonfires with s'mores and other guests make up for it. The owners were extremely helpful, friendly, and accommodating. A pleasant start to our vacation.

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
