“What a surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

My husband and I have five children so a get away doesn't come often. We purchased a groupon to go skiing at Cabrefae in Cadillac and so I needed to find somewhere to stay. I hopped on Hotels.com and found Mcguires. What a find. We always try to find a place that includes breakfast and this place did not disappoint. Our room was very clean and spacious. The pool area was amazing and clean. We slept wonderfully and the breakfast in the morning was a buffet style but on china and real silverware. Definitely someplace I would love to bring our family or for a get away again for ourselves. Highly recommend. Funny thing when I told my parents about this place they remembered it as they stayed there before too.....It won't disappoint.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm glad that we "surprised" you. Our goal is for stays like yours to not be a surprise, but what is expected. We've been making some changes at the Resort in order to continually improve. We love hearing from our guests and always appreciate feedback. Hopefully you will get the chance to come back up with your family soon. We look forward to your next visit.

We spent a holiday weekend in Feb at McGuires. The room was very comfortable and clean, Breakfast (at the hotel) and lift tickets for Caberfae were included in the overall price. The staff is super friendly and accomodating (they were even able to re-arrange our room assignment during check-in). There are two restaurants at the hotel. The food at both was very good. It was a very pleasant, family friendly place to stay.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad that staff was able to accommodate the assignment change at check-in for you. I will make sure the Food and Beverage department is aware that you enjoyed the food. They recently changed the menu and will love the feedback. Please think of us again the next time you visit Cadillac.

Just stayed 4 nights as a get together with Daughter. The Hotel room was clean and comfortable...bed was a little firm for me, but it was only for a few nights, and i did sleep well. Breakfast was in the dining room every morning (included in price)..Very nicely done and plenty of hot or cold food to choose from. I found every memebr of staff I encountered very helpful and pleasant, from front, desk day and night, housekeeping to the staff in the dining room and Curly's Bar...I would definately stay here again.
I have never written a review before, but these people deserve the shout out..

Room Tip: If you are going to use the pool and spa area, ask for a room with the adjoining walkway to it..espe...

Thank you very much for your feedback. We love hearing from our guests. I am glad that your stay was enjoyable. We love hearing that our staff is doing a good job in taking care of our guests. I will be sure to share your feedback with them. I also wanted to make you aware that we have planned a room renovation at the resort and we will be changing everything in the rooms. The plan is to switch to pillow top mattresses in hopes to create a comfortable nights sleep for every guest. We hope you make it up to see us again soon.

Stayed here for 3 days in Feb. for some snowmobiling. Rooms were extremely clean and comfortable, and the staff was very courteous. Ate several times at Curly's and had good food every time, reasonable prices, too. I enjoy micro-brews, and Curly's had the best selection on tap that I've seen in Cadillac. Will definitely come back. McGuire's is newer and nicer than most of the other somewhat tired and in need of renovation other places in Cadillac. It's right on White Pine trail, so easy access to the entire trail system. Prices are reasonable, so why stay someplace else that offers less?

We wanted to ski Caberfae and came across this hotel by accident. It wasn't our first choice but when we did call our first choice, it was completely full. The folks at hotels.com recommended this place for the same room price. It was overall, a great experience!! They had a great restaurant on site, a great swimming pool and spa and everyone we encountered was super nice. The only drawbacks are that we had to go outside and cross the parking lot to get to the pool. Needless to say its not convenient if it's the middle of winter!! The other thing was that the beds were a little too firm for me and my family so sleep didn't come too easy. But again, great place overall. If we ever come to Cadillac winter or summer, we'd definitely consider staying again - just please, get some slightly softer mattresses!!

Thank you so much for your feedback! Even though we weren't your first choice, we are glad that you got the opportunity to try us out. I understand your concern about having to go outside to get to the pool. Because of the layout of the Resort, it does make it difficult to have all the buildings connected. That is one of the reasons that we have the changing rooms available in the pool, to prevent people having to go outside with wet clothes. I also wanted to touch on what you said about the beds. We have planned a room renovation for the resort. We will be changing everything in the rooms. Our plans are to go with pillow top mattresses because we know that a good nights sleep is very important; whether your up skiing in the winter or golfing in the summer. We look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed two nights as a get together with our grown children. The hotel rooms were clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was quite nice with several hot items. The price with breakfast included can't be beat. The property was right on one of the snowmobile trails and M&M rental delivered the sleds right to the hotel. McGuire's is also close to Caberfae for skiing. For price, convenience and helpful staff, this is the place to stay in Cadillac.

Room Tip: One of the rooms we chose was a larger end room so that we would have a place to meet and visit.

Stayed three nights at McGuires while skiing at Caberfae. Room was nice and amenities were good. Great pool and hot tub area. Bar was very good with good variety of drinks. Staff was helpful. The buffet breakfast was a nice touch although they served the same menu each morning.

Thank you for the great feedback. I hope your ski trip went well and everybody had a good time. I'm glad to hear the the staff did their job in taking care of you while you were here. I also appreciate the feedback about the continental breakfast buffet. As you stated, the offering was the same each morning. We did this in response to other guest feedback stating they wanted a "consistent" breakfast. We are always looking for ways to improve, so we do appreciate hearing from our guests.

Thank you again for your feedback,

Bill
