Rooms are super clean and well maintained. Our room had to Queen Size beds with firm mattresses for great support, a microwave, and one of the best top freezer refrigerators I have seen to date. There was lots of storage space in the refrigerator and freezer compartments. The TV was small, but adequate, and not a great concern on our part. We came to Ludington to vacation and see the surrounding area. This motel also has Wi-Fi for computer and internet access. Our room had the normal complement of hair dryer, soap, Kleenex, toilet paper, shampoo, luggage racks, hangars, and two small waste baskets and extra basket liners. The motel management and maid service were very professional and accommodating. Whenever I had any questions about our hotel room and things to do in the local area they were always quick to provide me with an answer. The location of this hotel is two blocks east of the beach and four blocks west of downtown. Everything is in walking distance. All motel rooms are all ground level. Only one person is allowed into the office at a time due to social distancing. This motel does not serve coffee due to COVID 19 restrictions, I highly recommend this motel to all vacationers and those just travelling through.

We travel to Ludington Michigan every year, and decided to change to the Lighthouse Motel due to COVID. The hotel is located within walking distance to the beach and town. We loved walking to the beach at night to catch the sunset. No pool or other amenities, but clean and comfortable rooms.

Good location near the city beach and eateries. Noisey customers on second floor- Unfortunately no coffee makers in rooms. If you'd like a cup of java in the morn be ready to drive for one. Traffic thru the night was moderate. Average.

Stayed here while in Ludington for a family trip. The room was clean and comfortable. Everything here is really outdated though as it is an older style motel. If you want a modern hotel, do not stay here.

This hotel is so quaint. Super friendly check in and great conversation. It’s within walking distance to the harbor to see the SS Bagger loading, the beach, putt putt golf, and the town. The town has lots of shops, ice cream, and food choices. It’s also just a short drive up the coast to Ludington State Park. The hotel is also clean, has a microwave, and fridge. I would definitely stay again.

If you’re looking to park your car and enjoy walking to the Lake, lighthouse, ice cream and restaurants this is your place. Very well taken care of by owners that have a passions for hospitality. Rooms- clean and cared for. Outside seating areas and gorgeous little gardens. Worth it!

We stayed one night. It is a cute little motel. Our room was very clean, the shower was hot & the bed was comfy. It is within walking distance of shops and restaurants and also the beach and lighthouse. They owner was friendly & had good recommendations for restaurants. We were here at a slow time, so it was fairly quiet. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a place in Ludington.

Great location you can see Lake Michigan front the front lawn, walking distance to all of downtown Ludington. Rooms were very clean and cute. Great having your own entrance is very nice. Owner was VERY friendly. If you are going to stay in Ludington this is a great Motel. We honestly think it was under priced. :)

Room a few steps from the car, comfortable, bed was great. A tiny bit of road noise from Ludington Ave. A few blocks from a public beach and views of breakwater. Decorated in each room with an individual beach theme. The bed linens and curtains, etc were lovely soft, interesting fabrics.

Very clean and nice little place. Looks like it was recently updated. We just stayed one night and walked down to PW Steamer for dinner. Lady checking us in was very nice. Would definitely stay here again if I was in the area.
