“Don't judge this book by its cover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

When he says EconoLodge I usually cringe. But this one was quite comfortable. Yes the room was small but we weren't tripping over each other. The bed was clean & comfy. Good water pressure & lots of hot water too. It had both inside & outside doors which was convenient since my husband is a smoker. The TV was older but it was functional & actually had a nice picture.
The girl at the desk was very pleasant & helpful. Everything was very clean in the office too. Breakfast was continental style... Nothing hot but the coffee. There were danish & bagels, bananas & apples & several kinds of cereal. They had several kinds of Bigelow tea available too... I seldom see that in any hotel.
They say you get what you pay for & there are a lot of fancier hotels in town but don't judge this book by its cover.

Staff was very friendly...suggested using breakfast room mic to heat up our supper. Attractive breakfast nook with good variety of food.Reasonable price. There was a good variety of breakfast foods and they kept the trays filled.

Room Tip: A great budget hotel. all you could want for a night or two stay on the road.

Stayed here July 4th weekend en route to the Cherry Festival. What you see is what u get. Very accuate pictures of room & nice location. Refrigerator, 2 super comfortable queen beds, hot water in shower. I don't require alot when traveling because we spend minimal time actually in the room. I only ask for clean & comfortable & this location met those requirements. Small breakfast room with few choices but nice. Missed 5 stars due to shower pressure was standard at best. The kind of showerhead where the water squirts around you. The shower itself was very clean. There also was a slight patch of black mold in grout on bathroom wall. It looked to have been scrubbed but needed a tad more tlc. Walls a little thin where u could hear other guests running water but otherwise a very quiet stay.

This is not our first stay here. We have always been satisfied, and we too like the two entrances. We stayed on the ground floor in the back with our two dogs. The dogs enjoyed being able to see out the French door. There have been many improvements since our last stay. The double beds have been upgraded to two queens and have very comfortable mattresses. The breakfast room is all brand new. The carpet appears to be new. The staff was very friendly, helpful and cheerful, our room was very clean. There was a hairdryer in the bathroom and a new tub/shower. There is a frig and I think a microwave. The single cup coffee maker made surprisingly good coffee. My husband and I were 100% satisfied and would stay again. We also had a neighbor next door and could not hear a sound.

Room Tip: The ground floor in back your car is only a few steps away. The second floor is farther but your vie...

For a budget hotel this one is tops. The have french doors leading to the outside on the main floor. There are also french doors going out to a patio on the second floor. With the door on the main floor makes it very easy to unload your car. There are also hall entrances, so it's the best of both worlds.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. They know the area very well, so you can get a lot answers and information from them.

The rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable. They have been doing upgrades, but it's still a little dated. All in all a great place for the money.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of the building are quieter than the front because of the road in the front.

This is a great choice for a budget stay in the Cadillac area. The rooms are a bit outdated, but are very clean and the beds are comfortable. Every room has a balcony, and the ones on the front side of the hotel have a nice view of the lake. Staff was friendly and was able to give us a great rate.

This is my second stay here.

It wasn't as great as my first visit, but it was still good.

I reserved and paid for an upper and was given a lower. I don't like having a door that opens onto the parking lot, prefering the balcony upstairs room have.

The employees were good, the breakfast OK.

There are nicer places in the area - but - they all cost a lot more too.

So, given the price, I'll be back.
