“BEST PLACE TO STAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Best Western Splash Park Inn has become our stop over point between Mackinaw City and home. The pool and hot tub are excellent, the room is comfortable, the staff is friendly and the breakfast is outstanding. What more can I say. We love our stopover in Ludington. Highly recommend staying here.

Our team would like to thank you for your kind review. I will be sure to pass it on to our entire staff, positive feedback is a great motivator. We have a great team and we tell them often, but when a guest lets them know they are doing a great job it makes them try even harder. Thank you again, and hope to see you in the future.

Hotel was clean, rooms were fine, bed was good. The pool area was very humid, and is to be expected for this type of property. Breakfast was typical, waffles, breads, fruits, juice. The staff was very helpful. Would stay again if in the area

This was my fiance and I's first vacation together and we decided to stay at Best Western since, they had a pool and the lake was to cold to swim in. We stayed in a room with a Whirlpool tub and was glad that we did. The room was very clean, the whirlpool was very relaxing after a long day hiking in the state park. The beds were comfortable and the cleaning ladies did an amazing job keeping our room clean and stocked with fresh towels. The pool was amazing, it was a little cold getting into but once you got adjusted it was bliss! The hot tub was also nice, it felt great to soak in the hot water in between sliding down the water slide and swimming. The rooms were quiet at night with no noise from any of the neighbors (minus one lost lady who knocked on our door by mistake.) All the staff were extremely nice and very helpful. I also recommend their gym. It felt good to be able to keep up with my daily workout on vacation.

Room Tip: The rooms with Whirlpools are nice sized and quiet.

We stayed a couple of days here while traveling through parts of Michigan. The room was comfortable and very clean, no complaints at all. The pool was great, my daughter had a blast swimming there. The staff was very friendly and made a great restaurant suggestion for us, too. The only drawback was that the breakfast was served next to the pool and it was very hot and humid in there, not very comfortable for sitting down to eat, and we didn't want to take it back to our room. There's a small "overflow" room to the side but it was full. The breakfast was good and there was decent variety, though. Overall a good stay.

Good value. Very clean, nice staff. Breakfast a little late getting going one morning but the quality of what was offered was excellent. Will stay again. One of the best areas on Lake Michigan without a doubt.

Everything from the room to the food to the service was first-rate. Donna Knutsen was great over the phone in helping us choose an appropriate room and, along with the rest of the staff, very pleasant and helpful during our stay. The only negative was that we couldn't stay longer.

We have always loved to go to Ludington and have gained some very wonderful friends in the town. When we stay we always stay at the Best Western Splash Park. We have a big family and they entertain us with all the rooms we need and they rates are reasonable. They even know what room my wife and I like---hows that for service. We go up several times a year and we will continue with our Best Western.
