Reviewed 18 November 2016

This was our third trip to Marquette in the last two months so we been trying out different places to stay as I like to experiment. We chose this one this time because one I like motels instead of hotels, it was reasonably priced, it had good reviews, and it's in a good location. We seen it from prior trips...

Thank you for taking the time to comment after your recent stay with us. Without a bit more information, I can't comment on the room change you experienced; perhaps something was being worked on in the room you chose. But the rooms in that price range typically have the same amenities. Yes, booking through a travel agent means you deal...

Stayed there with a hockey team. Very nice and clean place to stay. Motel is an older place where the rooms are connected by an indoor breezway. This was one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. Don't let the price or the age of the place turn you away. The staff were all very pleasant.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay. We appreciate that you recognized how hard our staff works to make sure guests have a clean and comfortable place to stay when they're away from home that's also a good value.

Built in 1967 and in need of some updates but it was clean. Friendly staff. Extra, extra firm beds! The breakfast wasn't really. Granola bars and biscotti and weak coffee! Had to eat a really early lunch.

Thank you for your comments after a recent stay with us. Yes, the Cedar has been in the family for 50 years next year and many changes have occurred during that time. We are constantly making upgrades to the rooms as funds permit, primarily in mattresses but recently adding flat-screen TVs and frigs. For folks who have specific wishes, it's...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay at the Cedar. I appreciate your line about "low-cost but not a cheap hotel" because that's what we try to explain to folks. Being one of the few year-round independents in the county, we're busy with a clientele that looks for "family and clean" so that's what we...

Reviewed 17 October 2016

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay here. It is a family run business that the big chains could learn a lot from. The room was very clean and bright. After a long day on the road from Winnipeg we had a very relaxing time in the whirlpool which was spotless and enjoyed a cooling dip in the pool afterwards....

Thank you for your time and response to a recent stay with us. We receive many Canadian travelers who "dip" into the U.P. on their trips back and forth across their country. The Canadian flag flies in appreciation for their patronage as well as our personal heritage on both sides of our family. We're glad you had a pleasant room...

Loved this mtoel from the minute we walked into office. Charming and efficient young woman who greeted us and made us feel welcome. Room wa impeccably clean and modern. Very comfortable bed and spacious room. Breakfast was well tended to and very nice selection. We will definitely look forward to returning to this delightful place.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your recent stay was at the Cedar. It's nice to know that our guests appreciate our uniqueness. We're glad you had an enjoyable room and experience with staff. Next year will be 50 years in the family so we hope you can find your way back again next year,...

Reviewed 12 October 2016

This is a long-time family owned business. Even though it's a motel, the pool, the breakfast room, the office - everything - can all be reached without going outside in the snow or rain during winter because it has "indoor corridors". They really accommodate skiers (a "waxing room"). Breakfast - hot tub - sauna - pool. Easy to find -...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay with us. Yes, while we might have designed the building differently than was done originally, we do agree that the heated hallways were a very good idea. Besides happy guests, the staff also enjoys not being in the elements. We will be celebrating 50 years family-owned next year...

Reviewed 11 October 2016 via mobile

I made this reservation online for a one night stay for a double room. Upon entering the outer area to get to the rooms, we noticed a funky smell. We were assigned a room down a dimly lit corridor almost in the corner. To say it was outdated & creepy is an understatement! The bathroom was very small & had...

Thank you for taking the time to respond on your recent reservation. I know it's hard for a guest when they book online with anticipation and those wishes aren't met. Ours is such a cookie-cutter society of everything looking the same. We do encourage our guests to call us so we can place them in the best room for their...

Reviewed 10 October 2016

We were near the road, but our room was still quiet. It must be the extra hallway that blocks the noise. It was clean. Not much for breakfast if you need meat and eggs and such things. We went to subway and Big Boy after learning that the Perkins is gone forever. I would stay here again.

Thank you for commenting on staying with us this week. Yes, the hallway really makes the hotel cozy and convenient for guests. It's easy to walk down to the continental breakfast in your pajamas and sit in the atrium and have a cup of coffee and muffin. Since we have no restaurant or kitchen, we're glad you were able to...

Point Pleasant

Clean, safe, convenient, and if you had family with you also had pool and sauna. Price adequate and would recommend. Has a real key to get into the hall, key gets you into room. Little different in this day and time but no big deal...just different. Wifi adequate so worked out just fine.

cedarteam, Owner at Cedar Motor Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments after staying with us. We like to think the Cedar has a bit of everything for our guests. Our family has been here four generations so far in the last 50 years and we're glad you enjoyed that our hotel is a bit different from the mainstream type of accommodations.
