My wife and I have stayed at the Stearns multiple times and even were married there in the ballroom in 2015. We came up for an impromptu getaway and were greeted at the desk with the news that we were upgraded for being such loyal customers. The front desk treated us well and gave us late checkout. We also had... More

Our family booked 2 rooms at Sterns Motor Inn to be close to downtown festivities for New Years Eve celebration in Ludington. Location was perfect and we walked everywhere we wanted to go. Hotel is old, but clean and well maintained. Has a unique charm. Rooms were spacious. Amenities were sufficient for our needs. Staff was friendly and courteous.

We thoroughly enjoy staying at the Stearns every New Year's Eve. Rooms are clean, help is always friendly - breakfast is very good the next morning. We will certainly try and do this again next year!!

This is a beautifully decorated old hotel with a fireplace, work out room, whirlpool and even a tanning booth! Our room was very cool with high ceilings and a separate closet. We were well within walking distance of downtown. The Tiki Bar was a blast without having to leave the hotel. The only thing that would make this hotel better... More

We went there for a wedding reception. The Grand Ballroom was very nice. While it was a bit crowded, the staff was quick to provide whatever you needed. As with most old hotels, the rooms are a bit on the small side. They are however, clean and comfortable. They have made some updates but still have been able to maintain... More

We stayed here several times and the staff is always friendly. There was a wedding reception as well as the Tiki Lounge and despite that we slept excellently. Rooms are a little dated but beds are comfortable.

Found this place last minute on TA, nearly passed it up because its prices weren't available, but gave them a quick call and so glad I did. Our queen room was only $69.00 Super cool, classic hotel, like a trip back in time. The bars tiki theme seems a little out of place for its luxurious and elegant surroundings, but... More

Loved it. Will definitely go again. Loved the old charm decor, wooden doors with real keys, wide halls, old elevator, old pictures on the wall and beautful decor in the lobby. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Music was a little loud from the wedding reception downstairs but they warned us before we booked that our room was right over... More

After staying here, I see a recent review indicates Stearns has updated rooms for $40.00 more; I would have gladly paid the money as I believe the floor would have been more comfortable than the bed. I swear, I thought we were staying with the Flintstones in Bedrock. I really liked the lobby area; very antique looking fixtures which I... More

We love staying here. It is located downtown so it's close to lots of great restaurants and live entertainment. The hotel also has a nightclub called "The Tiki." Great way to end the night! Lots of fun dancing and excellent prices on drinks. Love the tiki decor. Even if you don't dance, you can enjoy yourself by watching the music... More
