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...

While the word "lakeshore" is in its name, Lake Michigan is actually across M-116 (where houses and trees block your view of the water). But a large city-owned Lake Michigan beach is less than two blocks away, and Nader's has bikes for guests if they don't want to walk. If you're lugging beach gear, there's plenty of parking at the...

Very basic motel, nice location. Stayed one night... I'll have forgotten about this place in a month. The price was good, and it looks like the pool would be nice in the summer (here in September). There are other hotels/motels closer to downtown and the beach.

We stayed here for one night in order to catch the SS Badger to cross Lake Michigan early the next morning. I got exactly what I had reserved back in July. This place is so UN-corporate it's like a breath of fresh air. The rooms were comfy. The room for our wheelchair bound member was perfect with plenty of room... More

Needed a place to stay for one night in Ludington. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor I felt confident booking a room with Nader's. Once checked in, I could not figure out what all the five star ratings are about. My room was on the second floor in the building with the office (room B). It faces the main road... More

We come up every year in September / October. Location is great, rooms are clean, we bring our dog, the pet friendly rooms are great.. Room is spacious. Rates are very reasonable. It's close to the lake and lighthouse. Close enough to town yet just far enough away to have peace and quiet. Can't wait to be up there in... More

This is a very nice family-run motel with wonderful family service. My wife and I only spent one night in the motel, but everything was very nice. The person who checked us in was, I believe, the father of the owner. He knew the motel and the nice area places to visit. We always appreciate a family run business vs... More

Just got back from our second stay at Nader's. That should tell you something. We love the pool, the picnic tables, the grills, Shuffleboard, Bikes etc, all for our use. They have a community room with coffee in the morning (but still give you coffee for your room everyday). Freezer for the fishermen in this community room too. Full size... More

We stayed here once before and couldn't wait to go back!! Kelly is so helpful and makes sure your stay is wonderful. So close to the beach, gas grills and picnic tables outside your door! We will definitely be coming back again
