5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We had such a nice time at this motel. I looked on Trip Advisor to find someplace reasonable to stay overnight. This motel had great ratings and sounded like fun with a camp fire every night and they provide the stuff to make s'mores. It was wonderful. There were 7 of us in 3 rooms. The beds were pretty comfy and I did not hear anything from any other rooms. The owners were so friendly and fun. I would absolutely stay here again!

Room Tip: There are only 11 rooms in this motel. I know one room has a recliner if you need to sleep in one i...

With my wife and another couple from Germany, we made a fall foliage tour through the UP which included a stay in St. Ignace, visiting Mackinac Island. The Cedars was a perfect place for our two night stay. Tim and Kathy were great hosts, the rooms were small but comfortable, The rates were more than reasonable and even included a light breakfast. We would definitely stay there again.

Excellent value and I loved the linens. We chose The Cedars based on trip advisor; we had a great stay. Kathy and Tim were very welcoming and helpful while planning our time and sights to see on our way home. We would stay again.

My husband and I stayed 1 night on our way to Grand Marais.
Our room very clean and had a fireplace. Kathy made sure that everything was perfect in our room. The continental breakfast had a nice assortment of things. My husband was surprised that
they had cinnamon bread, his favorite to toast.
We both said we would return when we come to the UP again.

We (4 adults-3 rooms) stayed here for 3 nights because of the good Trip Advisor reviews and were certainly not disappointed. The motel might look like something out of the '50s with pine paneling and one story U shaped design but bathrooms are modern, the rooms were very clean and cozy. There are fireplaces in some rooms. Most people would agree that the reason this place is rated so high is the owners, Tim and Kathy, who are so friendly and helpful and add all the little extras to make the place seem homey.

Room Tip: I believe that the rooms with just one bed have the fireplaces.

I decided to stay at The Cedars based on other reviews I read. I had a great stay, the room was clean and reminded me of being in a cabin. They serve a continental breakfast in the morning which includes items such as oatmeal, toast, cereal, donut holes and fruit. The hosts, Tim and Kathy were very friendly. Great budget motel and a recommended stay!

We came upon The Cedars randomly, but were really glad we did! We arrived late, but everything was all set for us with no hassle. The room was clean and simple, but it was just what we needed. The breakfast in the morning was a great surprise and had a good spread. We will definitely come back on our way to the Upper Peninsula!
