Pros: It was clean. Neighborhood was quite, close to the pier. Cons: This is a 50's style Motel not an "Inn" with about 6-8 rooms. The room was small like all motels were back in it's day. The king bed was actually two twin beds mattresses in a king-size frame. Coming back after a day of kayaking, there was no... More

We are "Cutting Edge," offering cable TV, Roku boxes and Netflix, all at no charge. Possibly our guest had some difficulty with the system. We are always available to help though, and wish that we had been called upon. As to the guest's bed, we have invested a lot of money in top quality mattresses and pillows. One room has... More

I booked this hotel based on its easy on-line reservation system, which is unlike other motels/hotels in the area that you have to call in to ask for price and make reservation. The price is a little bit high since it's not really in the "in-season" yet. It was very quiet and including our room, only one other room was... More

We appreciate your review of our motel and did enjoy you as guests so much. During your stay, our cable TV provider shut off our service as they were switching to a new system. Try as we might, we could not get the company out to provide TV. We really wrung our hands on this. It was very trying to... More

When the kids were younger, we used to go over to Ludington every summer. Once we found the Blue Spruce, we didn't want to stay anywhere else; it's the perfection of the ideal of the 50's motel, with knotty pine. The owners are lovely people, welcoming and kind. The location is fine; close to the beach, the park, the ferry,... More

My husband and I stayed in room #2 this past weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well (very quiet) which was so nice. So close to town and the lake. This was our first visit to Ludington and we will definitely make a return visit to both!

We stayed here for a night on our way to Canada. It is close to beach and downtown, the ferry, everything we wanted to be near. The room was a kitschy 50's decor. which we loved. It was very clean and very homey. She even walked us to our room - I saw her walk another couple to their room... More

Clean room, fresh linens, comfy beds, easy check in and out, but....It has been awhile since I've stayed in a little motel like this and it's just not my style. The bathroom is too small for my liking....no space for your cosmetics or hair tools and only one plug in the bathroom that I could find. I also didn't like... More

Thank you for your review, which perceptively identifies our retro style. We really do treasure this style, yet we enhance it with premium mattresses, absorbent, large bath towels, and fluffy pillows. Our spreads are quilted heirloom style and quite expensive. We can’t really be compared to a chain motel. They tend to all look alike. We look like us, the... More

This is a very comfortable clean small motel. A very quiet setting and great place to relax. Beds are very comfortable. The motel is only a couple blocks from Lake Michigan and Stearns park which has a great beach. Coffee, bottled water, cable and a small refrig in rooms for your convenience. We try to avoid the BIG impersonal Motels... More

In fairness to the wonderful owners, its a cute, small comfortable inn. Only 7 rooms, in a residential setting. Keep in mind, that the walls are thin and unless you have respectful neighbors, you can be awake awhile. Bed was so so in comfort, but neat and tidy. Free bottled water, coffee in rooms, and a t.v. to stay in... More

Thanks for your review and compliments to me as an owner. I enjoyed talking with you about the attractions you saw around the Ludington area. I do want to address the two issues you had with your stay in my inn. One issue was the "thin walls." We did have a young child in the room next door and do... More

We spent one night in this small Motel. The bed was very comfortable, the towels were plush. The room was spotless and cozy. The service was warm and friendly. The only downside was the shower head, it had very little water pressure. The Motel is one block from Lake Michigan. We will return to the Blue Spruce Inn again.

This is a 1949 "Retro" 7 room motel in the heart of Ludington. It's cozy with knotty pine walls, outside entrance and efficient but tiny bath. The owners keep this cozy space immaculate and are ready to assist in any way. The towels are 5 star; flat screen cable tv and great matress. Convenient for beach, 2 blocks and downtown,... More
