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.

Nice clean rooms and an easy walk to downtown. We were in town for the Suds on the Shore craft beer festival and had a great time. Staff was great. We forgot our festival glasses and t-shirts in the room and they happily mailed them to us. Great service!

The grounds are clean, and well maintained. The room was clean enough but in need of updates, Especially the beds...Musty, hard mattresses on both beds in our room. With allergies, I was up most of the night because of it. Aside from the awful beds, the pool is nice, it's close to conveniences, and reasonable room rates.

Spanking clean! Wonderful area close to the S.S. Badger (5 minutes away) The owners were very helpful directing us to a wonderful restaurant walking distance from the motel. I would definitely go back!

I stayed here recently during a trip to Michigan. This is an older, single level motel located on the main road going into Ludington, a popular Lake Michigan resort town. Because this is a tourist town, presumably all the lodgings are relatively expensive and the Viking Arms is no exception. My room was well over $100 for one night. It... More

Ludington is a wonderful place to stay,and the Viking Arms Inn is a good choice to stay while visiting. My room was excellent. It was very clean,and peaceful. I really loved staying there. I've paid much more at other places not near as nice. I honestly can't think of a thing bad to say about it. Will be staying there... More

One of the cleanest motels I've ever encountered. Ultra clean updated basic room, quiet surroundings, comfortable bed and crystal clear pool and whirlpool. Nice to see a 1950's style motel in such perfect condition. The owners are friendly and seem to be working constantly. I saw one of the owners actually sweeping the parking lot with a wooden broom! When... More

Close to everything, clean and comfortable room, love that we park right in front of our door, so we don't have to lug luggage up to any rooms. Didn't like motorcycles that were revving their engines early in the mornings. Didn't have time to check out the pool or other amenities, but they looked nice. Breakfast treats were ok. We... More

My husband and I were in town for a wedding and we stayed at this cute place for three days! Very nice grounds with pool and outdoor seating areas. Room was super clean and big! We had the Jacuzzi room with fireplace. The Viking Arms Inn overall is a relaxed atmosphere with owners who take pride in their place. We... More
