“Summer weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

We stayed at this inn during July. Rooms were good and were clean. Continental Breakfast wasn't the greatest. Limited to one waffle maker and cold cereal/juices. However we didn't stay there for the breakfast. Lindsay helped us with finding a spot for our fish and was very friendly. Two thumbs up for the help.

Need I say more....it was dirty, smelling and breakfast was terrible and we still had to pay $129 for this crappy room. We pulled back the sheets and they were dirty, smelled like they were covering something up and the tub was stained.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

We stayed at here twice in July. It isn't fancy but the linens were clean and the beds were comfortable. We had a non smoking room both times. The first room had been recently re-done with paint and carpet. The second room could have used a bit of maintenance. There were several stained areas on the carpet, Room smelled fresh though. As mentioned it was pet friendly but on our stay the pets remained quiet. Wouldn't have known they were there except when seeing them in the parking lot. Morning fare was adequate. Non holiday price is ok for the property. It's a good place for an overnight if you're there to catch the Badger car ferry. The staff was friendly and a good source for local information.

Room Tip: Nothing stood out about either room we were in.

This is definitely a budget motel. It didn't try to be anything else. The mattress was quite comfortable; air conditioning was fine; TV and cable worked; internet was good. No microwave; no fridge; no iron and board, no pool, very basic breakfast buffet. Best price in Ludington as far as I know. It had everything we needed and didn't have what we didn't need. I highly recommend it if your needs were similar to ours.

I chose this hotel because we were traveling with our little chihuahau. This is a pet-friendly hotel for a small fee. We had a nice stay. The rooms were clean and the staff at the front desk were friendly. The golf range in the back was cool, but we didn't bring our clubs to try it out. It was a nice hotel that met out needs.

We stayed two nights here while we visited with friends in Ludington, our stay was perfect! The rooms are a little dated, but perfectly clean and comfortable. We shopped the area before we decided on this place and were very happy with the price and accommodations, many places in Ludington were way out of our price range. Overall great stay!

Room Tip: 2nd floor balcony and rooms less used.

Reserved two rooms for one night for my parents, myself and husband to catch the early ferry across Lake Michigan. We would of moved on to another motel once we arrived but had paid in advance. They did not put us near each other as requested but fortunately one room was on the first floor so my parents didn't have to carry bags up stairs. We were put upstairs in room 202. Avoid rooms 202 and 204 at all costs, very strong cigarette odor, ripped curtains, black streaks on the walls and broken furniture. The staff immediately moved us to another room that was in better condition. Breakfast is adequate, nothing special, coffee very weak. We were glad to move on. The rest of the trip every time we passed an America's Best Value Inn we said "never again" There are plenty of small family motels in the area that looked very charming and worth a try.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 202 and 204. Ask for a lower level room.
