We have now stayed here twice and have nothing but good things to say about this place. The staff is great, the rooms are great, the location is great. Its very close to town and Stearns park. The state park is a little drive (relative to Stearns) but still very close. They really do have a great location. The kids... More

Nice, clean rooms and grounds. Kitchenettes, gas grills and baked cookies (not every day) are a plus! All rooms have easy access to parking and the nice pool area. Not a tiny pool like some. Gas grills and pet friendliness were also a benefit for us. Just a short walk to the Ludington beach and lighthouse. I wish we could... More

Lovely little motel, close to town and beach. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, pool, and grounds. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have recently updated and remodeled and it was evident. Lots of areas to gather with the family. Ample parking.

Great location; walking distance to City Park (watched the sunset from the beautiful beach). Moments away from quaint shopping area. Biked to the State park. Swam in their very clean pool. Very well maintained property. Gas grills and picnic tables. Very friendly staff. Would stay again. Good for the price.

We arrived to a very pleasant and organized check in. We entered our room and it was spotless, larger than expected, and then we were able to walk to town! That was awesome that the location was close to the beach AND close to town! We cannot say enough how much we loved Nader's! We will start our Ludington yearly... More

This was the last stop on our week long vacation through Michigan to catch the SS Badger in the morning. The grounds were immaculate and well kept. The outdoor pool was large, warm and inviting. The kids loved having some space to get outside and play-shuffleboard was a big hit. Wooden rockers on the deck were a welcome surprise. The... More

I arrived in Ludington via the car ferry, SS Badger, from Wisconsin in the evening. Driving through the town was nice but it was closed, so I didn't get to enjoy it. Located a 10-15 minute drive from the ferry, it's one block from the shore with lovely beaches within walking (or driving) distance from the property. Being a motor... More

Visiting the area for 24 hours. Wife's family lived and was a regular summer visitor Ludington. Was just looking for a simple place to stay for a quick visit and this is the place. Downtown a nice walk and the beach is right across the street. Clean rooms hot shower and no frills prefect for our needs. Summertime can provide... More

Walking distance to the beach (which is amazing) but too far if you are walking to the SS Badger, if you do not have a vehicle you would need a taxi. The room was clean the outdoor pool was nice tho people sat outside our patio door near the pool when I was trying to get to sleep. The pool... More

While other places are a little closer to shopping and restaurants, we loved the closeness to the beach. The staff and housekeeping were excellent. Kids loved playing shuffleboard, which was popular with other guests, the cookies, and the free bike use. If you can, bring your own bikes as the bikes there were very abused from use and not often... More
