This motel is in a fantastic location right near downtown and at only 35 dollars a night it is great value. The room was small but clean. We did manage to fit two of us and our bikes in here - it was a squeeze but at this price we didn't mind, and we could walk to downtown so we... More

1) these rooms are small, 2) there cheap for being downtown $49 bucks? 3) because they're cheap they seem to attract a certain Motel 6 type of crowd. 4) the ac unit is directly over your head 5) possible toe jam foot fungus contracted here or maybe lighthouse, bring flip flops. 6) ever been to Ikea...and seen what they can...

Queen beds with great bedding, the air condition NOT above the bed. Perhaps there are other smaller rooms but we have never stayed in anything but the above mentioned. One has... More

This motel offers very small but clean accomodations. The window A.C. unit is located at the head of the bed and is very, very noisy. The bed is a double, and the mattress was ready for replacement years ago.

As native michigan residents, my wife and I have vacationed in Ludington for more than thirtyfive years. We love the area. It's the best beach town on the west sideof the state. During all this time we never stayed a the Avenue Motel. So we chose to try it in August and we were pleasantly surprised. The motel was super... More

After finding that the large chains were way overpriced with "in-season" weekend rates we stumbled on the Avenue Motel. Its a small 8 unit motel right on Ludington Ave. While the amenities may be leaving some wishing for more, for others it would be perfect. The... More
