I normally prefer chain hotels, because I know what to expect. I tried this property, expecting it to be outdated and reeking of stale smoke from yesteryear, but did not find that at all. My room was clean, the bed was comfy, the furnishings reasonably recent, and best of all, loads of space. They had friendly desk personnel, too.

I did not try their coffee or breakfast, because I always try to look for a high end coffee shop when possible; I found a Starbucks up the street. The location was good - close to downtown, the airport, and close to all kinds of retail.

Just a few tips: If you wind up by the pool, and are close to the ice machine, make sure to have your AC fan on the "constant" setting. That will block out the loud noise from people filling their buckets in the late evening/early morning. Also, make sure you bring or buy shampoo or conditioner. Cedar only had a shampoo/conditioner combo in a tiny quantity.

Excellent value for a low price overall.

I recently stayed at this property this past week and I was pleasantly suprised! I traveled to Marquette, not knowing that NMU (local college) was having orientation and that mulitiple hotels were booked up for the night. I think the nicest feature was your pool room, I found it to be pretty unique and cozy. Only downfall was that it closed at 10:30pm. The rooms were very clean and it was a quiet stay. Breakfast wasn't much, but the staff was very pleasant. All and all it was a great stay, I would stay again.

Stayed here for 5 nights. Rooms were newly remodelled and clean. Booked 5 rooms for a family wedding. Some we bigger than others. If you need a larger room, be sure to request it when you make the reservation.
They do make you pay in advance so be sure to keep your reservation.
Staff were friendly. Had a few issues with Internet connection. Kept losing connection.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a less expensive, clean room. I would go here again!

Room Tip: Rooms #129 and #130 are very "Roomy".

We stayed at the Cedar Motor Inn over the Thanksgiving holiday. We chose this hotel because we could bring our dog. We were in an efficiency room that was not connected to the main hotel. It had a fridge, microwave and various kitchen supplies. It was spotlessly clean, the mattress was very comfortable. The furniture in the "living area" was dated, but clean and not torn. It was very nice to have a lazy boy style chair to read in. Our only complaint was that this part of the motel was very close to the highway. We heard traffic all night long; some very noisy. We would stay here again; but would bring a fan to block out the noise.

A not so modern motel that is clean. The continental breakfast leaves much to be desired. Rooms are quiet and comfortable.

Room Tip: Do not stay in room #135...too close to the highway and very noisy.

Older but clean and very comfortable. Free breakfast is coffee, fruit, cereal bars and possible pastry. Great pool! I would stay here again with my family.
