They were extremely polite and went out of their way to assist us. The pool and water slide was a blast. The morning breakfast was better than I expected. I... More

Ludington is just a short drive from home, so we went up just for the waterslide. The room was clean and comfortable, and the service was great! We brought our 4 daughters, so we needed extra towels and blankets, which we were given upon request. The breakfast is quite extensive considering it's complimentary. The pool was the best though!

We paid $70 for a night and they allowed us to keep our pet in the room. The rooms are what you would expect for Best Western. Pretty clean, although the hall smelled a bit. Overall, if you are looking for a cheap place to stay, it's a good choice.

We were very pleased to see that the breakfast has improved. The staff was very pleasant and efficient. the rooms were clean and comfortable. Our grand children were not happy with the game room as it is smaller and most machines do not work. The hot tub was not hot enough but the pool was very pleasant. Over all, we... More

First, I want to say that everything outside of the water park/pool area was great. Friendly staff, morning breakfast was fantastic, beds were very comfortable, and the hotel itself was very well maintained and clean. However, the main reason for choosing this hotel over others in the area is the water slide that is in the pool area. I went... More

Our Splash Park Inn is one of the main reasons that guests stay with us, we check the pool temperature every morning to make sure that it stays around 81 degrees. As for the slide, we apologize for the cold water since there is no water heater for the slide it doesn't not reach temperatures as warm as our pool... More

We stayed at this property for two nights in October, 2012. At check-in, I thought the nightly rate was pretty reasonable; when the innkeeper told my wife and I we could get a second night's stay for half-price, we gladly agreed to extend our stay! Nice hotel, great morning breakfast buffet. The televisions in the rooms need to be upgraded... More
