Cadillac Sands Resort
Ranked #14 of 14 Hotels in Cadillac
Reviewed 7 December 2011

If you are looking to be pampered or swept away in luxury go elsewhere. Is that even possible in Cadillac? This place was just fine for us, but it was old and worn (not dirty).. We were with a big family group and it served us well. McDonald's in the parking lot and close to everything. Great beach area. Nice that it's an old school motor lodge so you can literally back up to the door and unload/load.

We stay at the Sands whenever we come up to Cadillac to visit our extended families
We get a room on the pool and when the grandkids come we have a wonderful time playing in the pool. Later we can have a great dinner in the restaurant which offers some very good choices on the menu.
The Sand Bar is also a fun spot for the older kids on Sat. Night

Stayed the night in the Fall as part of a golf weekend. After reading the reviews here, I got what I expected. I thought the room was clean and the bathroom was adequate. Its a nice value for the location, just understand that you're not staying at the Ritz and it doesn't cost near the price of higher class places either!
I will stay here again if the opportunity presents itself.

I was pretty disgusted when we got into the room and would never have stayed if it were not for my entire extended family staying here as well. We had a total of 10 rooms, mostly right around the pool.
The bad:
*Rooms are desperately in need of updating
*dirty carpet
*dirty, uncomfortable mattresses
*stain on sheets when I pulled back the blankets, had to ask to have them changed
*cobwebs, spiders, and bugs
*dirty toilet bowl
* door locks didn't work very well
*disgusting breakfast, flies in OJ
*terrible lighting
*broken blinds
*could hear a ton of noise from pool area after we tried to go to sleep
*tons of noise from the bar up until 2am, which was outside our windows

The good:
*pool was nice
*beach was nice
*fire pit, patio, outdoor bar and picnic tables outside
*games for the kids organized by Sands staff
*friendly staff

Our kids had a blast at this place because they wanted to swim the entire weekend, and that's all they cared about. It's really too bad that they don't put some money into updating all of the rooms. I read in the reviews that they have updated the other wing, but we booked poolside rooms and didn't know this. They need to update the whole resort because they have a prime location and should be savvy businesspeople and capitalize on that. The grounds are nice, they just need to bite the bullet and renovate where people sleep!!

First off Im traveling with a handicapped child we had a room with a ramp this made things very easy for him to get around on his own. He spent most of his time fishing right outside our room. The staff was wonderful from the front desk to cleaning staff which by the way our room was cleaned daily.Donna at the tiki bar was also very nice and we had great service. I wish there were more ramps. Maybe even mini fridge? No matter what we loved having lake cadillac right outside my room!! See you next year!

My boyfriend took me up North for my birthday. He picked the Cadillac Sands Resort from the Internet. And I want to say he did a great job. The resort was wonderful. The staff was so helpful and friendly. And the food in the restaurant was super. Even the continental breakfast was tasty too. We are planning on staying there again very soon. This resort was so worth the drive up North. It is a really nice place to stay. And the staff was fun to talk with and helpful too. All in all, it made for a great birthday present.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake.

We went to Cadillac Michigan for a two day vacation and stayed at the Cadillac Sands Resort, looking to relax by the pool. We even paid extra for a pool-side room. However, the first problem arose when our parking spot and all nearby was covered in ice and not to mention the broken glass and hundreds of cigarette butts. Our room was very old and in need of new carpet. The pool was dirty and cold. BUT to top it all off they had not told us that they allow the public to come in to swim and the two nights we stayed there was a large swim team doing drills for over 2 1/2 hours (with their siblings running around unattended) and the next moring when we tried to swim again a group of 15 + seniors having a swim class. The staff did nothing to accomodate us. Oh, and don't plan on having a fresh continental breakfast. The food they had was old and very stale!
