We stayed at the Ramsdell last night. It was a pleasant stay. Check in was smooth. I was surprised you do get actual keys to your room. I honestly cannot remember the last time I got an actual room key!! It added to the quaint feel of the inn. We stayed on the 3rd floor. There are no elevators so... More

We attended a small wedding and reception held in the beautiful lobby of the Ramsdell Inn. The elegant decor, delicious dinner, and helpful staff made it a perfect evening. We were just as delighted with our room. Very clean, quiet, and the bed was quite comfortable. We loved the unique decor, tall ceilings and huge window. We appreciated the unexpected... More

Situated one mile from Lake Michigan. Beautiful town with friendly people. Watch the freighters come through the channel from Lake Michigan. First weekend in December is the Victorian Sleighbell Parade. Four Clydesdale horses pull a 25 ft Christmas tree down River Street with the lighting of the tree and fireworks at the end of the route. We stayed at the... More

This Historic Hotel is really neat. However the air conditioning system needs to be upgraded. The rooms were way to warm and stuffy. They offered fans but they did not do the job. We ended up opening a window which helped but then we had to deal with road noise. The hotel is very cool and has tons of potential.... More

Have to say the room was super, clean and nice amenities and up-to-date, even tho in a historic hotel. But lobby is not staffed good hours, so you have to call for anything after 5 or before 10 a.m. And as it IS in a historic hotel, we would have liked to hang out and explore the lobby more, but...

I thought it would be nice to stay in a historic boutique hotel for a short weekend getaway and the Ramsdell Inn had that type of appeal. I thought the rooms were a bit overpriced for an off-season stay, but hey, it's an "historic" hotel, right? I got in to town around 9 pm and found that the desk isn't... More

I know for many people that go away they prefer to disconnect, as we sometimes do as well, but not on this trip. I planned a genealogy research trip to Manistee and having a connection was very important to me. It is stated on their website they have wireless internet, so I didn’t think to question it. Also important was... More

One of the best experiences in a hotel that I've had in a long time. Super clean, very tastefully decorated and updated with lovely bedding. I loved the historic nature of the building. We hadn't stayed in Manistee before and thought we'd give it a try. We'll be back! The Ramsdell Inn is in a great location downtown and we... More

We have stayed multiple times in the suites on the third and fourth floors. Nice little table and chairs overlooking the city on three sides. The woodwork and large windows remind visitors of the 1920s and 30s, but it is updated with amenities like WiFi. The staff is always great! The restaurant is very popular, also. Located right downtown, it... More

We stayed in the 4th floor Ramsdell Suite this past week and were not disappointed. It was lovely. The staff was friendly and you ran into them often as they do everything at the hotel, from checking you in to doing the laundry. We ate a couple of times at TJ's in the lower level. The food was good and... More
