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

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. No... More

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

We just spent our third weekend in Ludington this summer and have stayed at the Lakeside Inn all three times. We came back this time because of our wonderful experience in late July. The location is great, the staff is very friendly and accommodating and the prices are reasonable for the location. The rooms are not newly updated but are... More

I will Never stay here again! The moldy smell was overwhelmingly nasty!!!!! When we told them our concerns we did not get a nice response. Bathroom was not clean & toilet didn't work. Cobwebs around bed & bed spreads felt, looked & smelled dirty. Sheets looked clean but dinghy. This place should NOT be open to the public!!!!!!!!! I feel... More

We stayed for two days the Sunday and Monday after the July 4th holiday. My husband & I had stayed here two or three times over the last 12 years. The motel is older, but the prices have always been good & the people running it were very nice & helpful. This time I had difficulty contacting anyone to make... More

Stayed two nights. Check in was easy and pleasant. Room was small, one double bed facing the mini golf and the park. Rooms were dated but clean, smelled like they use to be smoking rooms but once you ran the AC it was better. Perfect location for Downtown and the beach. State park was a short drive away. Nice pool... More
