The location of this motel cannot be beat; it is right across the street from a Lake Michigan park and within easy walking distance of town. The swimming pool is large, clean, and warm. And that's about it; I'm giving this an average rating because the location & pool bring up the rest of the motel. This could be a... More

I travel very frequently. By far this was the worst ever!!!! One double bed? Really? Looks like they are still there from when it opened. Not one plug in the bathroom. .Worst beds I have tried to sleep. Went to the car finally. Ruined our trip. Take off the nasty bed spread and you have a old old yellow itchy... More

Stayed here because it was close to the ferry. It was more than we wanted to pay, but we figured it would be nice. OMG...if you like hard mattresses, flat pillows,and NO amenities; then this place is for you. We had to ask for some tissues, pillows, and a hair dryer. Coffee is served in lobby, but they don't open... More

The breakfast is served every day at 08:00 p.m. The hours of operation are visible in the reception entrance and are spoken in the time of check-in. The rooms will be renovated to better care. Our prices begin on 88.00 dollars plus tax for a room with one double bed. More

Stayed here for one night due to no rooms available where we normally stay while visiting Ludington. Room was dirty and run down. Bathroom was run down. Smoke detector went on when taking a shower and would not stop.

Pros: decent shower water pressure, right on the beach, outdoor "heated" (not really) pool Cons: terrible old, uncomfortable mattresses & pillows, no room to unpack, no wifi, small tube TV (not that you want to hang out in the room anyway), old wrinkled carpet, no iron / ironing board, had to ask for toilet paper 1 hour after arriving.

We will never stay here again. The room was moldly and dirty. The carpet needed to be cleaned. There were spiders and spider eggs all over the bathroom. There was no WiFi. There was no coffee pot in the room. The staff was friendly but the room was awful.

Not one person I came in contact with seemed happy or friendly on the phone or in person! This place did look nice on the outside but as soon as I unlocked the room door I felt as though I was starring in a horror film! There were a swarm of about 10-15 flies buzzing all around the dirty room.... More
