Stayed here one night while checking out Ludington with our family. I'm always nervous to stay in older places and I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very clean, and I am fussy! I would the location is great! I would definitely stay here again!

I stayed here one night on the way home form an extended motorcycle trip. At check in, the owner offered me clean rags to wipe down my motorcycle in the morning as he said there was usually a heavy dew. He also gave me good recommendations for dinner and good directions for some shopping I needed to do.The room was... More

We prefer to stay at places local as opposed to chains and as we drove by this place, I could tell by the way it was maintained that the rooms would be also. Bingo. Older place but very clean and modern..... and very reasonable. Danish and coffee in the morning and on your way down the road. Pass the chains... More

Older property in need of updating, but reasonably clean and well kept-up. Very pleasant proprietor at the front desk. Coffee, juice, and light continental breakfast items available in the lobby the next morning. Last stayed at this property over 25 years ago, and it has not changed much. One curious thing I have never seen before was an unneeded electrical... More

The host was extremely considerate and accommodating when another Inn in Ludington cancelled our booking at the last minute. The rooms were clean and comfortable and we enjoyed the location. Off the street enough so there was no traffic noise.

We booked this hotel for the first night of our honeymoon. About 7pm at night, when we were about an hour away, our boat motor went up in flames as we were pulling it behind us on 131. We called the hotel to explain our tragic situation and the man on the line had no sympathy whatsoever and said we... More

For you to say I mistreated you is just a little exaggerated. When your reservation was made it stated there was a 24 hour notice of cancellation through the reservation website that you used. You called and told me of your situation and since you reserved the room through someone other than directly with us I couldn't just cancel the... More

Viking Arms is a perfect place to stay. Very clean, great pool/ jacuzzi which is always warm!! Rooms are nice, and the staff is always friendly. We've been two summers in a row and love it. We will always come back to a place that ranks high on our list!!

This is an ok place, it's old but well kept up. The bed was very hard. The whirlpool tub was not that clean, it had a ring around it that felt a little scumby. It was quiet and the pool was nice, altho, it was too cool outside to swim.
