After losing a reservation and calling a long list of motels a friendly guy answered the phone and said yep, he had a room and would hold it for 10 minutes ! My husband got there and checked in and he was grateful to have a place to stay. No other rooms in the town. It was super basic, clean and had a pool. My husband did not use it. Room size was small and the bed a small double. My husband is 6'3 so he didn't get the best sleep.
Overall he needed a bed and found one here. He said it was real close to the water and the Badger ferry. Family run motel and it did the job.

We stayed at the Nova Motel during our second trip to Ludington. This was the only motel that had vacancy available on the date that we planned to visit Ludington. First of all, the owners were very nice in answering questions when I called to inquire the rate about the room, and are very friendly and helpful during check-in. One of the owner (a guy) recommended to us great places in Ludington for fishing (since my husband is very into fishing), and he also recommended local attractions and restaurants for us to visit.

The size of the room was acceptable for a motel. Bed was bigger than expected even though was told that it's a full-size bed upon booking the reservation. The bathroom was a bit small but big enough for my husband and I to get around.

Now let's get to the negatives: 1) there is no WIFI or internet connection in the motel, I never stayed in a hotel/motel that doesn't have wifi. I believe internet is a must for all hotels/motels even if you don't have other amenities, so that is the most disappointment part of the stay. 2) the furnitures appeared to be outdated and very old fashion. 3) there is no microwave, fridge, hairdryer in the room. 4) there were a left-over earbud, battery, and a piece of small metal on the floor, which appeared to be left over from cleaning/previous guest(s). 5) the AC is directly on top of the bed frame, not sure if all rooms are like this but the room we stayed in happened to be that way.

This motel, which appears to be family run, gave us a good, economical place to use as a base for our exploration of the area. It is on a main highway but not on the strip of chain hotels, which is a plus for me. I liked the picnic tables in the outside area, inviting us to sit a while. The room was basic and clean. It looked like a good place for a family to stop for a night or two.

Room Tip: I can't rate the pool, as I didn't try it out, but it looked well kept. There is no breakfas...
