We are a group of 4 cyclists who like a motel where you can drive right to the door and then park your bikes inside. The rooms were very clean and large. The price at $55 was right. You could walk to the downtown strip or the restaurant a couple of blocks away. We were one mile from the ferry... More

I stayed at this motel for two nights because I was in a wedding here in Ludington. Upon checking in, the owner immediately started treating me with disrespect. I told her there would be 2 of us staying in the room and she looked at me with disgust (it was my friend-a girl- and myself sharing the room to save... More

Air conditioner was very loud not where I would want to spend any length of time at. Would stay some place else next time.The only thing this place has going for it is the location for it is on the main street and easy to find.

This is a very nice family run motel. No frills but very clean and in an excellent location, walking distance to the beach and downtown. t's a little far from the ferry but they provide a shuttle service.

Just spent a night here at the Ventura Motel. It's an older style Mom and Pop type of motel that is located extremely well for exploring Ludington. It's nothing fancy, certainly not trendy, could maybe use a little paint here and there, but it's a clean, friendly, place that offers an ambience that you seldom find at a chain motel,... More

The two great advantages the Ventura has are location and availability. It's right next to the city park (not the beach park), across the park from the popular local ice cream parlor, and within a short and gentle walk to both the beach and downtown Ludington. And it was available when other area hotels and motels were booked up. But... More

Reserved a room at this motel for a quiet evening away and brought our dog. Never during our phone conversation to make the reservation did they mention no pets and their website does not say no pets either. Upon arriving we were greeted by the owner who saw our dog in the car and proceeded to tell us that she... More

We made reservations. We showed up, and our room was double booked. So they put us in another room that was just awful. then when we started to complain they kicked us out. We were not even there one day.

We have visited Ludington many times for the 4th of July holiday and stayed this year at the Ventura. We appreciate that so many hotel and restaurant choices near downtown are family run and non-franchised businesses. The Ventura was as good as or better than other higher price options we stayed at in past. The Ventura location cannot be beat... More
