Let me start by saying I'd stay here again. The location is good, all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the room was reasonably priced and clean. Everything in the room worked very well, bed was comfortable and pillow was very good (somewhat of a rarity when traveling)! Towels were provided for wiping down motorcycles which was a nice...

When I am in Ludington this is my motel of choice to stay at. The rooms are clean and cozy, close to downtown Ludington and the beaches, but most importantly for me, close to the SS Badger, as I usually arrive in town on the ferry.

Under new ownership and you can tell they have worked hard to take care of this town friendly motel. The room I had reserved was not available when we arrived and had to stay in a smaller room and smaller bed. But the next day the fella called to say he had found our original reservation & apologized & they... More

Have stayed at this motel for decades. Lovely couple ran it thus always wanted to give them my business when in the area. The older couple retired and turned the business over to their sad sack of a son. You are greeted with signs on the door on fluorescent paper cut into huge exploding star shapes of "No Pets' and...

Nothing fancy, but a nice clean place to stay. Everything was kept up showing pride in the place. A good value when all you want is a place to sleep for the night. No pool, but the rooms were in good shape.

We have stayed here many times in the past and were not disappointed this time! It is a simple place but the beds are comfortable, everything is clean and the owners are wonderful people who really make you feel welcome.

I made a reservation for the hotel for 2 nights. The night before the trip I was sick and called the motel and and said I would not be in for the first night but the second night only. The lady was very nice and said no problem. When I arrived and gave my name the man started screaming profanties... More

Stayed 2014 08 20 Nightly rate $80.00 A little unobtrusive as you drive by. This place is worth searching out. Very clearly, the owners take pride in their establishment. The asphalt was freshly repainted, the lawns were meticulous, the parking bumpers were clean and freshly repainted and clearly marked. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and seemed to be...

Stopped in for the night after several long days in the saddle on a motorcycle ride with my buddy. The owners were very pleasant and eager to please. We asked for a room with two double beds on the main floor and got it no problem. The motel and grounds are very well kept. The owners obviously take pride in... More

Have stayed here many times over the years on our annual fishing trip. Could not be happier with service we have had! The rooms are simple but very nice. The lay out of the place just makes it feel right, very low key and played back. Look forward to returning every year. Plus the place is very quiet at night.... More
