My son and I spent one night here after crossing Lake Michigan on the SS Badger. The Motel is very well kept and our room was extremely clean. Management allowed us to drop off our bags early in the morning so that we could investigate the town on our bikes as we did not cross with a car. The mattresses... More

Very nice, cute motel/inn in Ludington. Convenient walking distance to downtown for breakfast and in the opposite direction, to the stunning Ludington beach. Even though this is a retro-vintage vibe-y place, we couldn't have been more comfortable. The bed was great, and it was nice being able to park right in front of our room. Muriel and her daughter were... More

We stayed there from a Saturday to a Sunday in room 5, was our anniversary weekend. The place was quant and cute but when we crawled under the sheets for bed, we found large quantities of sand and ended up sleeping on top of the sheet. To add insult to injury our neighbors were EXTREMELY loud, all. night. long. We... More

The cleaning staff went to clean this room the next day and found little piles of sand scattered across the flooring. We are very close to the beach and now and then when our guests swim and then walk back to their room they carry sand on their feet into their room and into the bed. It would be impossible... More

Don't let the exterior fool you. This is a very clean and comfortable motel. Small but charming. Free Wi-Fi. I will stay here again. Only 2 blocks to the beach and 4-6 blocks to shops and restaurants. The bathroom is a tight squeeze, so heavier folks would have a problem. This motel was perfect for us.

Needed a room the night before heading out on the SS Badger. I called Blue Spruce since it was so close. They had one room left, king size frame with 2 full matresses, just like on a cruise ship! My brother and his wife decided to join us, so I called the Blue Spruce back a couple days later to... More

This motel is quaint and adorable - and its proximity to the beach is fantastic! At the Ludington Blue Spruce Inn my stress immediately drained as I felt I was transported back to simpler times ... but with some modern day indulgences in the linens and ammenities. I adored the sort of retro feel of the immaculately clean and well-maintained... More

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
