“It Needs a Complete Makeover or Overhaul”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2013

This motel was very outdated, run down and dirty. It seemed as if the beds had not been replaced for more than a few years and the linens were worn out. They also needed to call in an exterminator, for there were bugs in the corners and on the windows.

The staff acted as if I was bothering him. I waited quite a while for someone to come to the front desk and after he did, he was rude and impatient. Not worth the money I saved.

Room Tip: I'm sorry, but I can't recommend any of the rooms

Other than than the entire property needing an upgrade the place was great for what me and my friend needed which was an inexpensive and conveniently located motel. The front desk people were very friendly and helpful. I told them about a light that hung over the beds that was not working for me and they came to replace the bulb but it still did not work so they said that they would call an electrician and get it fixed. It was only one light bulb so it didn't bother me. the room was actually quite decent except for the bathroom which looked like it hasn't been updated since the 50's but it did have a new sink and faucet. The towel bar and the bathroom shelf's were broken and and the space between the shower and bathroom needed caulking. the place had free WiFi which was awesome. The handle needed to held down for the toilet to flush. The room also had some minor cracks in the walls. The newer combo AC/heater worked great, a tad noisy but not bothersome. There was one light switch that didn't seem to turn on anything. the mini-fridge worked okay. I do wish they had an alarm clock in the room like most motels. only one outlet was a three prong outlet. It was a problem for my friend cause he wanted to plug his laptop in but it was all the way across the room. All-in-all it was a good stay and if i come back to Cadillac looking for an cheap place to stay, I'll know where to go.

Stayed here the first weekend of August. Had to ring a bell to get someone to check us in, that's understandable as its clear the people live at the hotel, but we seemed to be bothering the manager. He questioned the fact that we (two females) only wanted one bed - not really in a "what's better for you" tone but a "why do you only want one bed?" Tone. (Because she is my girlfriend, thats why) . The room was tiny, dark, the bedding was threadbare, the a/c kept shutting off. Outside of our non-parking lot-facing window, we had a pile of rusty old bedframes (this creeped my girlfriend out). The shower curtain wasn't big enough for the opening (and I say that because it was a creepy little box) so water got everywhere.
In short, even though I got the room for under $50 on hotwire, it was creepy and i wish I had spent more for a more comfortable room. There wasn't anything awful about it, it just wasn't welcoming at all.

Overall was not too bad but could've been worse. Room is older with the birch door's. The mini fridge was old and the door wouldn't shut. Had a brand new a/c wich was nice. The bed was nice upon inspection for bed bugs i found no activity. The box spring was pretty stained up. The thermostat was missing the cover. Had holes in the wall patched with caulk. Toilit seat was missing a bolt. All in all just small things wrong but was very quiet. My only complaint was when I left i almost had to pull my pistol on a guy because he wanted a ride downtown and i said no. He said he did two trips to the pen and he would get his way with me weather I liked it or not. Mr./Mrs. Patel were very nice people who manage the motel. Would I stay there again.. yes I would. If you look over the small things it's not that bad.

Stains on the carpet, holes in the drywall, missing chunks out of the ceiling tiles. I understand the stay was inexpensive but this was the worst place I have ever stayed at. The bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. The curtains were hanging on by only one hook.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!!!!

This budget hotel I got through Hotwire was very nice, and cheaper than anything else I could find in Cadillac, MI. We were there in the winter, skiing, and spent one night. The "clean comfortable" room ethic was there. Wifi worked, the clerk/owner was pleasant, the room did not smell, the beds were firm enough, the cable worked well. The only complaint was that the room was at 55 degrees when we arrive and it too awhile to get it up to a decent temperature. The bathroom was OK, clean, nice shower space. Coffee and a pastry complimentary in the morning. It is a good overnighter place.

Knew I would only spend around 7 hours in the room with 6 being sleeping. Bed was clean and OK. Only half the lights worked. Heating system was noisy. Bathroom was grungy. Shower had some super showerhead that was like standing under a firehose - most uncomfortable. I didn't fear for bugs but it is pretty run down and out of date. If you are staying for more than a short night, it's probably better to go a little further down the road and spend about $30 more for a room.
