As in other reviews, this hotel is in dire need of renovation. The room was not filthy but was not clean either. The carpet needs cleaned badly and we didn't feel comfortable using the hot tub because it just looked gross. The towels in the bathroom are super thin and are yellow. The hotel has a great location but is... More

I was traveling north to photograph a wedding. Decided to stop off in Cadillac for the night. They didn't have any of the regular rooms available, but they did have what they call their "Contractors Rooms". It may not have been as luxurious as the other rooms, but it was clean and was very sufficient for my needs. These rooms... More

Yes the property is dated, however the location is prime! The rooms are priced budget as I am sure the owners are aware of the need for updates. I suggest the lakeside rooms. We had a patio that is only steps to the beach area. We rented a paddleboat and kayaks that the kids loved! There is also a patio... More

This place is a sorry excuse for a hotel! We experienced a dorm room type atmosphere with college kids partying and walking half naked in the hall ways. Music blaring with doors open from the other guests. We asked the front desk if they cut off the partying at some point and their response was "Oh no, they go all... More

This hotel has not been touch since the early 80's ...rooms are dated and in disrepair. Heat register in bathroom was all rust and filthy. Old tube TVs. Tried to eat in the bar/restaurant and had to return my horribly tough steak...the escargot was wonderful though. The only bright spot was our wonderful server....she was outstanding and professional. Have stayed... More

I have stayed here twice in my life - once ten years ago and now again this past weekend. Ten years ago, as a college student, the hotel was tolerable. Since that time, the hotel has not made any steps towards updating or (it seems) maintenance of the hotel rooms at all. The carpet had cigarette burns and large stains,... More

This is the longest review I've ever written on Trip Advisor. Where to begin... When we arrived, first flag should have been the lack of snow removal and the trim work hanging haphazardly from the exterior of the building. After the warm temps, rain & winds the parking area had become a full ice rink with "ponds" everywhere (notice, I... More

This person is obviously a very mean and vindictive individual who does not have a valid complaint and whose review is totally exaggerated.We were in the middle of a power outage with damaging high winds and flooding, thus the building damage and "ice rinks". There was no odor - we had just recently repainted the entire resort. The water dripping... More

Outdated, linens were dingy, no phone, no hair dryer, no iron. Had to charge my cell phone in the bathroom due to lack of wall outlets. There was only one light in the room. The website paints an unrealistic picture of what the facility is like. There were no coffee makers, microwaves, or refrigerators in the room. The price is... More

I booked a 3 day stay at this "Resort" in Aug 2015. After driving up from Detroit my wife and I checked in. The A/C was off in the lobby and there was a big fan blowing. It was about 85 degrees outside. After checking in and going to our room we were amazed when we opened the door. The... More
