I spent four and a half months at the Viking Arms Inn from 12/1/13 - 4/14/14. It was the slow season (winter) and David, the owner, was very accommodating. If it needed to be done he got it done that day. Room was nice and comfortable, which was important because I would be there a long time. Had a storm... More

Clean, great people, easy and in a great location. I have been staying here for several years, While I have stayed at some of the other places in town in the past, I won't stay there anymore. IF you want a clean friendly place, this is it.

Over many years, we have traveled to Ludington Mi., more than any other city. The Viking Arms is the place we like to stay in. We have tried others, but always return to where it is clean and comfortable. The owners are kind, friendly and professional. It is not right in the hub of the city but is located close... More

Stayed here 10/11/4 and bed was terrible. Wife and I woke up with very sore backs. Felt like the bed had busted springs. Asked for partial refund and was totally shot down. Will never stay here again. There are other much nicer places to stay so PLEASE look around and avoid this crap hole. Manager was a douche bag. Very... More

Sorry you weren’t comfortable during your stay. As many compliments as we get for a comfortable stay there is a few as with any business that are not satisfied. From what you told me the other couple where happy with the room they had. A room that had the exact same bed just a king instead. Perhaps you have a... More

Stayed only one night on our way to Manitowoc. Easy on and off highway, close to ferry, friendly and knowledgeable proprietor, comfortable room and bed AND reasonable rate. You can get a good prime rib at Scotty's just up the street. Ludington is a lovely town. Wish we had more time. Breakfast was adequate for us as we were at... More

After a poor experience at Vista Villa, we drove the block to Viking Arms...should have gone here first. Value: the rate was better than expected especially when it included a continental breakfast. Continental Breakfast: Coffee/tea; oatmeal (add hot water) in several flavors; packages of Sara Lee danishes and those General Mills breakfast bars. Room: room was large as well as... More

My wife and I booked a room here for a Saturday night in early August, and were happy with our accommodations, Our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and everything worked as it should in the room. The cost was also reasonable given the location and season. If we had any complaints, they would be as follows: The room... More

My husband and I got the jacuzzi suite for our 10 year anniversary. Absolutely loved it! There was a fireplace, the jacuzzi was great, the bed was perfect. Better than most hotels we've stayed at. Will definitely be back!

We stayed for two nights to sandwich our trip to Wisconsin on the ferry. Our stay was comfortable and the rooms were very clean. The owner was friendly and accommodating even when my daughter locked us out of our room within five minutes of arriving :) The rooms are nicely decorated and had modern conveniences such as wi-fi, flat screen...
