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...

We have stayed at Viking Arms several time and have always found it to be a very nice place to stay. Rooms are clean and well kept. The pool is awesome. Management is friendly and very helpful. I will stay here many more times in the future.

My husband and I stayed at the Viking Arms after taking the car ferry across Lake Michigan. The weather was not great, but this place was. Our room was beautiful and cozy. We took advantage of the jacuzzi tub in the room (something I normally would not do, but this was so inviting). The fireplace was a nice touch, but... More

No frills at Viking Arms. This motel has about 50 rooms with parking right outside.. Easy to get in and out of and right on US-10. The rooms are very clean. No mold or other strange smells lingering. Outdoor pool is heated and very well maintained. Not a place for romance or luxury, but a solid night's sleep for a... More
