Stayed here while doing the circle tour of Lake Michigan. Friendly check in. Gentleman was very nice. Very clean rooms. Property is very well maintained. Nice pool area with a spa. Wished the spa was a bit warmer. Overall a great stay. Thanks!!

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

Stayed here with motorcycle tour. Room and bathroom were clean. Bed comfortable. Chech-in area recently remodeled. Owners offered coffee and cookies when arrived and had coffee, juice and pastries available in the morning. Located near a great resturant within walking distance. Located less then ten minutes from the ferry. Recommend the Inn and would stay there again.

We stayed for one night at the Viking Arms. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the beds were comfortable. Everything at the Viking is well maintained, updated and clean including the pool, the reception area and the landscaping. Owner was very helpful. The Viking is located about a mile from the Badger Ferry and downtown Ludington and is... More

Our room was very clean and everything worked fine. The owners were friendly and offered suggestions on places we could check out. It was cool and rainy while we were there so we didn't try the pool or spend much time on the grounds but everything looked clean and well maintained. The lobby appeared to have been recently removed and... More

We thought the price was too high for this older motel although it was clean and the owner was very nice. Not far from downtown Ludington. The weather was too cold to try the pool. We stayed in Room 150 which had a larger bathroom and King bed because it was a handicap room.

Clean room and friendly service, close to restaurants and attractions in Ludington its maybe 15 min. form the state park and 5 min. from lake Michigan. Ludington is one of the best places I have visted in Michigan.
