Most places along the water in Michigan require a 2 night stay. The Lighthouse Motel didnt and that was a bonus for my sisters and I who were only visiting Ludington for one night. Our room was decorated in a really cute nautical theme. 2 queen beds, a mini fridge, and microwave. We were one block from the lake and... More

This is a beautiful, clean, quaint Motel located within easy walking distance of downtown, the boat docks, and the beach area. You can park your car when you arrive and not get back in it until your trip is over if you so choose! We expect to be back for another stay in October!

Our room was so cute, love the decorations and so many special touches! Perfect location, walking distance from the beaches, lighthouse and downtown. Very clean rooms, and all of the staff we encountered was friendly and helpful. I checked out some of the other rooms, and they are all unique and quaint. Their decorator really knows cottage style. Wish we... More

Let me start from the beginning. My mother booked 2 rooms, 4 people per room for my sisters birthday the weekend of July 26th. We have been coming to Ludington every summer since I can remember and Aleigha decided this would be a great place to spend her 21st birthday. The rooms were booked back in May. We were so... More

These visitors to our motel were courteous and friendly when checking in that afternoon and caused no trouble and seemed well behaved until the bars began closing. Around 1:30 we began hearing loud voices coming from the front building of the motel and after checking we found part of the group on the upper deck outside their rooms drinking, smoking... More

We stayed a few nights during the first week of Aug. The county fair was going on at the same time. Very nice stay, clean, updated and soft beds. We had two rooms on the south side facing Ludington Ave. Right out the door and off to eat, shop or hit the beach. Everything worked well and the staff was... More

Lots of homey touches, family-owned and lovingly cared for. Soft, comfy beds for the best sleep of the trip and a FANTASTIC price. Easy walk to the beachfront or up to shops and House of Flavors. Super duper cute little place.

Loved our stay. Only 1 1/2 blocks from the beach and close to town. Everythings within walking distance. Room was very clean. Comfy bed. This was our second stay at the Lighthouse. Would highly recommend this motel.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Lighthouse in Ludington. It can best be described as Quaint in the best sense. The Lighthouse, is a nostalgic institution that reminds me of a simpler time. It is convenient, clean, and decorated in a comfortable motif. The owner, Jill, is a delightful woman who makes every effort to insure the satisfaction... More

Don't let the title of "motel" scare you from this place. It's official name is By the Lake at Lighthouse Motel. It's pet friendly and a stone's throw from the beach. You can see the SS Badger come in and leave port. The Owner and her grandchild help take care of the place. It was amazingly clean and each room... More
