Great location, minutes from the ferry landing, convenient, clean, quiet, nice breakfast buffet too! The staff was friendly and it was a no hassle place to stay for a night. Visit the dunes while you are in town.

The room was clean but there was a strange smell to it. I thought that it smelled a bit musty -- my husband stated that he thought it was a stale cigarette smell. ALL ROOMS are supposed to be non-smoking. The breakfast was pretty typical for a chain hotel lobby breakfast. The staff was friendly.

Following our trip across Lake Michigan on the Badger ferry: There are a number of hotels within 2 mile of the ferry dock, but nothing that looked close. We pre-booked at the Best Western Lake Wind, which is 2.5 miles from the Badger dock. The hotel is nice and directly across from the fairgrounds. There is a large indoor pool.... More

I took my daughters and friends to this hotel for my daughter's birthday getaway. I was very pleased with the hotel. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about area activities. Breakfast was amazing and the breakfast staff went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. I would definitely stay here again.

Quiet and easy access to the town of Ludington and the ferry. Hotel is right across the street from the fairgrounds. Clean rooms, nice beds, roomy breakfast area. Quick trip to downtown and the lovely waterfront parks- great for walking and sitting and ice cream at House of Flavors dairy.

The free breakfast was great. The location was pretty good, just a few minutes to downtown Ludington. The bathroom was not the greatest, but the rest of the room was average. Front desk was nice and helpful.

I saw other reviews saying that the rooms were new, but the room I got was not new. The people in the room above us made a lot of noise. I don't know if it was so loud because of them, or because of the sound quality of the room.

On august 29 this year we stayed at the Best Western Lakewinds. We had a very nice time there. The room was spacious, modern and well equiped. We enjoyed the swimming pool and in the morning we got a delicious breakfast. About the staff we can only say that they were very friendly and helpfull.

This Best Western is a decent hotel with a good location only a couple miles from the beach. All of the staff was very polite and I have zero complaints about my stay. I give this a 4/5 because it was a little pricey but it's about on par with other hotels in the area. The beds were decent and... More
