This is just an average hotel in terms of room quality. But, if you are going to stay in this town, stay down by the water. There is a nice trail to walk around by the water and get out to the pier. Easy walk to downtown areas as well. The hotel has a bar and they serve a good... More

We just arrived and find the location to be wonderful. the staff is super friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean as are the common areas. Happily we have a lakeside view but unfortunately there is a broken seal of one of the windows - obscuring the view of the water. Unfortunately the staff are unable to relocate us. Are the... More

We stayed here on our way back home from ludington via the ss badger. Our main reason for picking this place was because of the included breakfast. A must when traveling with a larger family. The hotel staff was friendly and attentive. We had request a lake side room and booked, what I felt was, well in advance but we... More

This hotel has a great location - right on Lake Michigan. The free breakfast is good and in a nice large space so people are not jammed together. The pool is full sized and clean. Some of the furnishings are starting feel a little worn and dated. Double beds are offered in many rooms and it is a tight fit... More

The location of this hotel to the Maritime Museum and lake was great. The pool and front desk were great. The room was okay but the windows are all old and "cloudy" so you couldn't enjoy the view. These could use some updating. The AC/heating was average but musty/old smelling. The bathroom was updated and pleasant. Great water pressure and... More

It was an excellent experience and we will be booking it again for next year's ride! It was very clean, the pool was great. The breakfast items were plentiful with a very sweet hostess there. The beds were very comfortable and it was very quiet so we could rest for the next day's ride.

The Best Western lake front in manitowoc was adequate. When you first walk in the hotel smells very damp and must as well as it being humid. I do not think they have proper ventilation for their indoor pool. The decor of the room is very outdated but the room is spacious and comfortable. Bed was fine with the exception... More

We stayed at this motel because it is right on Lake Michigan and there is a nice walkway along the lake. We had requested a room with a view on the third floor when we made our reservation and were pleased that was what we got. The room was spacious and very clean.

I love the location of this quaint hotel. The staff is very personable and attentive. Although there is no lounge/restaurant on site it is located within walking distance of numberous good bars and restaurants. The location right on Lake Michigan is convenient as there is lot of public access to the views of the water.
