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!

We stayed on a Friday night to celebrate my birthday. I had always admired the architecture of the Ramsdell when visiting Manistee. It's unique placement - smack dab in the midle of town - is also a positive attribute. When you stay at the Ramsdell, you are right there! An easy walk to everything! The nightly rate for one of...

If you aren't afraid to climb a few stairs, I would definitely recommend staying here. It was among the less expensive places we stayed on our trip around Lake Michigan, but probably the most unique and by far the best value and the cleanest!!! It is right in the heart of the nice little downtown of Manistee. We stayed in... More

Liked the idea of staying in town as we were traveling on a motorcycle and kind of like to park and walk to dinner, shopping etc. When we checked in there was no one at the desk, but a sign informed us that they were busy with housekeeping and we should call the number on the sign and someone would...

Best part of the whole town during our stay was the restaurant! Food is amazing! Room was decorated nice. Hotel staff was friendly. Bed was horrible to sleep on it was hard a rock with no give. The rood did have a odd smell but was tolerable. But hey at least room was clean!!!!!

Love the area , but finally have someone to share it with. Ramsdell is clean and comfortable. The other hotels in the area dont compare to the character of this place. great beds and pillows.they supply bathrobes. shuttle on in to the casino or cruise to the waterfront.

My husband and I stumbled across this boutique hotel on our way thru Manistee. We booked the Jefferson suite as we sat in the cozy pub in their basement, TJ's Pub. The bartender brought us our keys. We couldn't have been happier with the room. The view wasn't much, but they had the electric fireplace going and a bottle of... More

We had a very nice clean room but not great. It was a warm early Fall evening and the hotel had shut down the A/C for the season. We had to open the window to try to keep cool. There were no screens and the traffic noise was annoying. They had wifi but it was too weak on the fourth... More

Thanks so much for your review. This lovely building is remarkable in its design..its walls are 20 inch thick granite! I promise we have tried to offer a great experience, however some of the modern conveniences such as WiFi arent perfect. We continue to strive to improve your experience..and are so pleased that you would return! More
