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

Best place, and only affordable place acrossed from the Beach. It may not be the most beautiful place but it works for me. I just hope they never sell. Because it's the perfect location. BTW The family that owns it are fun people too!

Love this place. They are super friendly and will accommodate all sorts of requests. They truly go out of their way for visitors. The pier is right across the street, as is the city park where there is always some fun to be had. My family has come here for years and this is a wonderful family place.

I grew up in Michigan, but moved away several years ago. I came back last year and happened to have to stay in Ludington. I was blown away by this place! It is family owned and you get personal service that you never find anymore. Sweet owners, super clean rooms, immediate attention to any detail. Comfy beds, air and even... More

This property was very disappointing. We expected more from our stay here. The room was extremely dirty. There were dead flies and cobwebs in the window. The one and only lamp was dirty and the bulb was not working. The A/C unit had dust flapping in strands blowing with the air. The shower was covered in soap scum and mold... More

My family and I stayed here over Labor Day weekend. The service was great. They made it possible for us to check in after the office closed. The room we were in was very clean. The housekeeping staff do a wonderful job. We could look out our window and see the lighthouse and the skatepark. We could walk across the... More
