“Enjoyable Family Trip”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

The staff at the Ludington Best Western are fabulous! They made sure that we had everything we needed. There were six of us in the apartment suite and housekeeping kept us well stocked. We were able to cook out on the grills that are available, and our kids really enjoyed the play area. I never knew that the suite was available until the manager suggested it for us, and it sure made things a lot easier. We will definitely stay here again!!

First room reeked of stale smoke so we moved to another room, which was very nice and clean but the bed was horribly uncomfortable. Woke up with sore backs. The Splash Park is just really one water slide and I lost my interest when I seen a Mom in the hot tub with 3 toddlers. If they are that young, do you think they are controlling their bladders, yuck. Oh well, not the hotels fault, just an observation. Why don't you have to be at least 10 years old. Just saying. Nice location, staff was great, breakfast was fine, just hate not having a good night sleep. The lady suggested that we come back again and stay in the queen beds since they are so much more comfortable. I wish they'd offer that upon check in.

Room Tip: Apparently, you should ask for a queen bed because they are more comfortable.

We took advantage of the BW program and received a 4th night free at the toronto airport, so we could attend a wedding near by. The accommodation was quite nice with the exception of the door not locking and we were on a tight time schedule to get to the wedding. Maintenance came immediately and repaired the door.

I have stayed here several times over the years and never had a bad experience. Every time I go back the place is more updated and better than ever. It has a really nice pool area and a good breakfast. The rooms are large, internet is fast, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. For the fishermen, there is plenty of room to park your car and boat in the parking and they have hot coffee all the time so you can grab a cup before you head out early in the morning.
I definitely think that this is the best hotel for the price in Ludington.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of the hotel are closer to the larger parking spots where you can park a boat.

The room was very clean. The mattress was comfy and the HD tv provided nice viewing. Friendly front desk clerk, provided smooth and speedy check-in. We did not eat breakfast because it was mostly starches, which does not work well for a diabetic.

NIce hotel but rugs in room need to be kept clean and door to bathroom able to close. Breakfast was ok but the hard boiled eggs would be nicely supplemented by a breakfast turkey sausage. Location is great since you are not to far from Ludington city park and Ludington State Park which is a great place to visit and enjoy pure Michigan.

This BW was better than expected. We got a good internet rate and got a nice room outside the pool area (ask for that if you don't want the pool smell/noise in your corridor). The room itself was larger than a usual room and was clean and comfortable.
The pool is nice (kids), the slide was not open (off-season only fri/sat/sun) and they have a larger fitness and arcade section (I missed a pinball machine :-)
Breakfast was in the pool area, but luckily also 2 rooms next to it where you can sit. 4 waffle-makers. But the 'hot' breakfast was only biscuit, no eggs or bacon/sausages. Could get some improvement.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool or non-pool room, depending on your interest.
