My parents and I decided to stop into Manistee, Mi on our way to Travese City, and head to The Ramsdell Inn to visit an old friend of my parents. The lady, my parents' friend, no longer worked there but to my surprise, as I am an architectural buff, the building was gorgeous. There is a pub on the main... More

We spent a weekend here and had a great time in Manistee. I love it when I can park, and not use the car again until it's time to go home. This historic building is beautiful, I loved counting the steps to our room (53) because there are no elevators. The layout of the room was unique, the shower -amazing!... More

We loved the Ramsdell. The rooms are beautiful. Bed and bedding including pillows was so comfortable. The owner let us take a peak at one of the vacant suites and it would definitely be worth a visit. Great location just steps away from the river walk, the Vogue theater, a coffee shop. Would stay again if we plan another Manistee... More

We only stayed one night in the Hollister Suite. The room was very nice, clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable too! A couple of warnings though, this room is right next to the stairs so, there is a little bit of hallway noise but not terrible. Secondly, this hotel is above a restaurant/bar. TJ's is a great place... More

This is a charming hotel with that is a comfortable place to stay. Our room was the Harbor Suite situated on the 3rd Floor. The room was clean and inviting and we really enjoyed our stay. The property doesn't have an elevator which may be an issue for some, but it didn't bother us at all. My Only suggestion for... More

We stayed one night at the Ramsdell Inn and enjoyed our stay. The room, The Jefferson, was very well decorated. Bed was very comfortable. Everything was clean and in good working order. The steps could be a hardship for some, but worth it.

We LOVE this place! We have often admired it from the outside so my husband decided to surprise me with a stay on the inside. The rooms are large, airy and light. The bed was super comfortable. The fireplace was a cozy touch, even in the summer. There was a little basket of treats. The towels were plentiful. I loved... More

We enjoyed our stay. There are a few options in Manistee, but do not like Days Inns or Super 8 motels. For us Ramsdell Inn is very good and is centrally location in the nice downtown location with many eating options. Our choice was Bluefish Grill and the service was okay. So our next stay with be with other nice... More

Great location, the Ramsdell suite is stunning and I got lots of exercise walking to the lake and up and down the stairs. Staff was friendly and easy to track down. I would love to go back and stay longer. Bed was EXTREMELY comfortable. A win win!
