Step into a time capsule and travel back to the days of small mom and pop motels. Owner was onsite and left us a voice mail around our expected check in time. Service was excellent and had no issues while there. Room reminded me of visiting grandma's cabin. Bed was covered in a quilt and walls were knotty pine. While... More

We visited Ludington for the beach and sand dunes..we booked the Blue Spruce Inn online having never stayed there before..the room was small but clean, the bathroom was very tiny and the shower turned cold when anyone at the motel flushed a toilet or ran water..we requested a crib but was told they didn't have cribs..we did get a cot...

All of us at the Blue Spruce feel sad about your experience. You had selected room with one queen bed when you booked online. It's great for a couple, but inadequate for a family. More

This is really cute. The hostess couldn't have been sweeter! You park in front of your room. It is wood paneled. The decor is like visiting your grandmother's home. But it has everything you need. A coffee maker, hair dryer, TV, lots of thick towels. There are lots of places to set your items. So many bathrooms don't have that.... More

This place has a good location. The room was clean but smelled musty. We were travelling by motorcycle and didn't have room for our bags and to walk in the room. I can see where this type of place really appeals to some people, but for us not so much. Very expensive considering we stayed in Marriotts and such with... More

Thanks so much for your review, especially the note on cleanliness. Our cleaning staff spends an hour each room (that includes laundry time), so we're very proud of our presentation. I'm not sure, but it could be you had room 2, the king bedroom. That room has a smaller floor area, due to the larger bed. It also has a... More

When I'm on a road trip, I prefer staying in family-owned hotels and motels, rather than chains, so it doesn't feel like you're sleeping in the same place every night. I picked the Blue Spruce because of solid reviews, the fact that it had recently been redone, and the fact that I could book online. I did email the owner... More

Great place to stay--perfect location--walking distance to beach, downtown and restaurants. It's small with only 7 rooms but they are clean. My room was paneled in knotty pine and looked like our family cottage. The owner Muriel is delightful and makes you feel like family

My son and I spent one night here after crossing Lake Michigan on the SS Badger. The Motel is very well kept and our room was extremely clean. Management allowed us to drop off our bags early in the morning so that we could investigate the town on our bikes as we did not cross with a car. The mattresses... More

Very nice, cute motel/inn in Ludington. Convenient walking distance to downtown for breakfast and in the opposite direction, to the stunning Ludington beach. Even though this is a retro-vintage vibe-y place, we couldn't have been more comfortable. The bed was great, and it was nice being able to park right in front of our room. Muriel and her daughter were... More

The cleaning staff went to clean this room the next day and found little piles of sand scattered across the flooring.
