This place is a rip-off! The owners have done no more than pay the taxes. Very outdated and old. Wi-fi does not work. Beds are old and smelly. Bath room filthy dirty and moldy. You would do yourself a service to STAY AWAY from this place.. Period! Owners are providing nothing of value here and are walking out the back... More

We had high expectations for this hotel because it's across the street from beautiful Lake Michigan. It didn't hit the mark on any level. Except Location. The odor hit us first, very strong smell of mold or musty damp dog and it lingered. We opened a window and left. It was tolerable when we retuned a few hours later. No... More

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.

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.
