My family has been staying at Naders for over forty years and we are still coming. They have been updating the units since the small shack-like cabins of the fifties and sixties -and, of course, the prices. If you put as many people in the unit that the advertising suggests, you would have to put two people in the "double... More

My husband, myself and our 2 dogs had a great animal friendly room, which are often very hard to find in Ludington. I grew up in Ludington and have seen and heard of Nader's all my life( + 60 years). After selling my parents home and now having to find a place to stay Nader's was my first choice. Its... More

Our stay was excellent! I brought my dog and he was very welcomed there. I love that grills were provided. The room was clean with plenty of room. My kids loved the pool. Unfortunately the city of Ludington isn't as pet friendly. I would definitely stay at Naders again.

Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable. Within walking distance to beach and Gus Macker courts. It was great having access to grills and picnic tables. The kids really enjoyed the pool, also.

This is a little older place but don't let that put you off. My room was big with a comfy bed, desk, mini fridge and microwave. There is no closet, just a rod with hangers. Bathroom was small but clean. Towels a bit smaller and thinner than I like but lots of them. The best thing about the room is... More

We had a room in the Main house upstairs which was recently totally updated and was very comfortable. The pool is heated and very clean. Walk a block to Stearns park on Lake Michigan. If you don't mind walking up stairs to get to your room I think the rooms in the house are the nicest. (as they have all... More

I like staying at locally owned Mom and Pop's and try to give them the benifit of the doubt in reviews but. There was a "musty" smell when we walked in that got worse as the evening progressed. The next morning it was strong and easy to recognize as dog urine. The shower was an old water saver showerhead that... More

Denis, We understand your concerns about your stay at our Motel. We certainly wish you had brought this to our attention at the time of your stay, at which time we could have made arrangements to move you to a different room. Although we do have some dog friendly rooms, I assure you our carpets are cleaned daily and professionally... More

Anderson cam highly recommended and we can see why! The hotel was easy to find, close to the beach and to the city, price was amazingly fair! We are definitely coming back to stay because of the convenience and the friendly staff! Everything is kept clean and everyone was accommodating to our needs!

My family has been going to Nader's for years. First of all, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The pool is always clean and so is everything else. You are literally a stone's throw from the city beach. Unfortunately, you can't really see it because of houses and trees. It's not far to walk downtown, or head into the beautiful... More

The staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. Gave us a great deal for a family who drove up looking for a place to stay. Seemed like all the other places in the area wanted to over charge us because we didn't have a room reserved. Rooms were nice and clean. Walked right out our sliding door within feet from the...
