McGuire's is located on a beautiful property. Beyond the golf courses, a great nature walk winds through the pines. Truly a great walk!

HOWEVER, the hotel itself is very dated. The rooms are clean but worn and are in dire need of updating. The bathrooms are a mess. The towels are thread bare. The linens have seen their last day. The TV is 15 years old. If you need the INTERNET, don't expect to be able to connect from your room, it probably won't. But, they are quick to tell you that the internet "works by the pool". They claim to have an "exercise room" but it is nothing more that a treadmill in a regular hotel room. If you are traveling with a Pet, you will be delegated to a room that is well below average - be prepared.

Breakfast vouchers will get you a complimentary breakfast which is above average but that is the only thing, above average at McGuire's.

We appreciate your feedback about our resort. It is important to us that we know how we are doing.
I understand your concerns about the wireless internet. We currently have a plan in place to haver wireless throughout the resort, probably before the end of the year.
As for your concerns with the linens, we recently placed an order to replace our worn ones. We are also transitioning out our older televisions. We have already replaced about 30 of them throughout the resort.
Please feel free to contact me about your stay. I would love to have you visit us again and see the changes that are being made.
You can reach me at 1-800-632-7302.

Sincerely,

Bill

Sept. 7-9 stay and play. Golf course was Great! Proshop personal friendly. Breakfast was bad, powered eggs, uncooked sausage! not ready at 6:30 am, 1 waitress for all. I read other reviews, don't know what happened this weekend but the rooms, food, service was not good. A/C-Heater unit very Loud, dirty sink, glasses, carpet. scratchy bedding, Old TV. The golf, pool, hot tub, sauna excellent. Not worth staying overnight here. Play and GO! Don't Play and Stay!

Room Tip: Play here, stay and eat somewhere else.

My wife and I stayed at McGuires in August of this year. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are looking forward to going back on our anniversary in September. The staff is very friendly and the food at Curly's Pub was very good. The room was spacious and clean with it's own private patio. This will be our destination on all future trips to Northern MI.

This place was something else. They said in their brochure when you're here you're an "Honorary McGuire", guess being a McGuire isn't so great. The rooms smelled like smoke even though it said no smoking. The bed sheets had stains and the floor also had some cigarette stains too. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting and the towels had a bad odor. We went to the resturant and my only complaint there was the Spring rolls, don't order those because they will make you sick. I will say this, they had nice tennis courts and a nice golf course, everything else was falsely advertised. I will not return.

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback regarding our hotel. I am certainly disappointed that your stay was not all that it could/should have been. I would like to apologize on behalf of the hotel and its team for your stay.
All of the rooms at the resort are non-smoking, so I am unsure why your room would have had that odor. Our housekeeping staff generally does a great job cleaning and deodorizing the rooms.
I would like to talk to you in more detail about the rest of your stay, so I can get a clearer picture of what happened. Please feel free to contact me at 1-800-632-7302.

Sincerely,

Bill

We took advantage of a Groupon deal to visit McGuire's resort in Cadillac.

Room:
Our room was ready when we arrived (standard double), and they had provided a Pack n Play for our 7 month old. The room was nice and clean, though the decor was a bit dated. One thing I noticed was that there were A LOT of outlets to plug things in. Usually, we have to unplug lamps or alarm clocks in order to charge our phones and laptops, but our room at McGuires had plenty of plugs, which was nice. We also appreciated the mini-fridge for keeping baby food refrigerated.

One problem we had was that our room key cards kept getting "deactivated". Within 10 min of arriving, we were locked out of our room as we were unloading the car. We went back to the front desk, they reactivated they cards and told us to keep them away from phones/ipods/other credit cards, etc... We were very careful after that, but during our 4 day stay, we had to get at least 6 cards reactivated. Our room was very close to the front desk, so it wasn't that big of problem, but if our room had been farther from desk, it would have been annoying to be locked out so often. The resort was going to have maintenance look at the lock the day we left.

Food:
Our stay included breakfast every morning. Breakfast is served until 9 during the week (until 10 on weekends), and we noticed that it was less busy if we got there a little before or right at 8. The breakfast had a nice selection of hot food: scrambled eggs, hash browns, a meat (either sausage or bacon), and something else...omelets, or pancakes, or french toast, or "western" eggs. The buffet also included: fruit (bananas, grapefruit), muffins/danishes, cereal, toast/bagels, oatmeal, yogurt, juice and coffee.

Twice during our stay, we had dinner at Curly's (Groupon deal included two $20 vouchers!). The service was quick and efficient. We enjoyed the basket of popcorn when we arrived! The food was good standard burgers/sandwiches/fries. We also got dessert to go both nights...the tuxedo cake and cheesecake were both delicious!

Other:
The pool was great. We enjoyed a lot of time there with our 7 month old. We were often the only ones in the pool area.

We don't golf, so I can't comment on that.

All in all, it was a great stay!

When we arrived at the resort the hotel staff could not find our reservations. This was because she repeatedly miss-spelled our name in the computer. She was also very rude to my elderly parents who had made the reservations correctly! My mother had confirmation numbers and all!

Beds are extremely hard. It was like sleeping on a board. There was no security at all. Underage kids were running around the parking lot at midnight, drunk and making a lot of noise.

The breakfast food was awful and the rooms are just so so. I will never, ever stay there again!

Room Tip: Don't even try!

We stayed at this resort for a wedding. I would call the property dated but clean. It had old furniture, cheap curtains and bedding. Some buildings were more recently updated than others, we stayed in one of the older buildings. There really is no "wow factor" with the sleeping rooms. But like I said it was clean and overall we enjoyed the stay. There is a nice pool area, indoors, with a game room, sauna and hot tub. The golf course looked nice, we didn't play. Took a walk on their VitaTrail, it was nice that it took you through some wooded areas but it also runs along the golf course and we could hear balls coming through the trees and were a little nervous about getting hit. The wedding reception was held in a very small room, I'm not sure if they had a larger space available or what the situation was there. The food was pretty good. We really liked Curly's bar, hung out there a few nights, great service, very friendly staff and reasonably priced drinks. Ask for a Summer Island! All in all not what I would expect from a "resort" but still a nice place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building were updated. Some rooms have a balcony.
