“A decent place to sleep”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

Stopped here for less than 8 hours to sleep before skiing. No complaints. The free breakfast was decent, some fruit might have been nice but for the price we paid, it was sufficient. The rooms were clean but a little dated.

Room Tip: All the rooms open to both the parking lot and the interior hallway, which is interesting.

I stay at this property because my employer pays for my stay when I'm in town here. At first I thought it was going to be a dirty dump because of the name Econo Lodge. I was so impressed from the moment I walked in to the time I walked out. The staff is awesome the rooms are awesome & very clean. Each second floor room has a balcony of its own and first floor rooms have a patio of its own. If i ever go back to Cadillac on vacation I will choose the hotel over the big name big dollar locations for sure. Great job to everyone who works there.

I normally would not stay at an Econo Lodge. However, we were in need of a place to stay and would be coming in late, so we decided to book it. The room was clean and appeared to have been recently repainted. The carpet was in decent shape, shower stall looked new, and everything was in working order. The only down side was that the mattress was a little cupped in the middle. It wasn't bad enough that I would not stay again. Also the new management appears to have redone the breakfast room as well, and it was decent for a cheap hotel. On that note, all of the pictures currently on the Choice Hotels/Econo lodge website are dated. Basically, everything appears to have been updated since the photos were taken.

This is a modest hotel, but the staff was very friendly, and the room was fine. Nice balconies on the second floor rooms, even though there wasn't much to see. Continental breakfast included waffles, but not much other than starches. Nice cheap place to sleep!

Very nice and clean room and hotel in general. First hotel where we had a "french door" to enter our room from the outside and a regular door to the inside hallway. I thought this was a neat arrangement and it was the first place we stayed that was quiet at night and very peaceful even though it was on a main highway.

Bed was comfortable and the shower was clean and had great water pressure. Don't hesitate to stay here you won't regret it. Beautiful lake across the street and plenty of amenities in town for most anyone.

Room Tip: We loved the lower level so that it was easy to get our stuff in and out of it. Not sure whether th...

I've stayed here three times while my daughter was studying at Interlochen, mainly because accomodations weren't available in Traverse City. Clean, reasonably priced, located between the two lakes and on the outskirts of Cadillac city. Last stay had a problem with the toilet and the manager repaired himself promptly. For my money this is what a good motel should be. Two thumbs up.

Room Tip: Within walking distance from a good basic restaurant ....don't remember name. Great breakfasts.

I found the last July 28 Cadillac MI available hotel room. I needed only a shower, towel and clean bed at the end of a 110 mile bicycle ride. I had no need to be choosy. I was so pleasantly surprised at the better than economy accommodations. There is a trail section exiting Sunnyside that allows you stay off the M-115 roadway. There is an ice cream shop/beverage/convenience store, several restaurants and Lake Cadillac within a stone's throw of the Cadillac Econo Lodge. The room was clean and fresh. There were plenty of clean towels and the room was nicely equipped including a refridgerator. The lovely hosts securely stowed my bike in the hotel maintenance room. Complimentary breakfast choices provide perfect fuel for the return trip. The hotel stay exceeded my expectations. I thank the friendly Econo Lodge Cadillac MI hosts. I recommend this hotel for the trail weary. The Cadillac MI Econo Lodge stands with the 2.5 - 3 star hotels I visit.
