My husband and I stayed a few days in Pentwater and then the second part our trip spent 2 days in Ludington. I booked a room based on good reviewed of this place - my husband was a bit weary to stay here since it's a motel and we generally stay at nicer hotels. Well, we were pleasantly surprised when...

My wife's family has been staying at Nader's for one week every July for several years now. I've now been included in the annual trip for three years, each time we stayed at Nader's. Nader's is clean, well maintained, and the service and hospitality is second to none. Last year, they switched software programs for reservation tracking. My wife and... More

We booked Nader’s after changing our vacation plans at the last minute to include some MORE Ludington time. We stayed our first night at an entirely adequate (but overpriced) “big box” hotel and decided to try something else for the remainder of our stay. Based on the TA reviews and having actually seen the proximity of Nader’s to the beach... More

We could only stay one night at Naders, but we had a great experience. Our unit was clean and the small kitchen was nice to have. The pool looked great and the grassy area served many families well as they gathered for dinner or just to hang out. We used the bikes in the morning which allowed us to check... More

My family rented 3 units at Nadar's. 2 were for our daughters and their young family, the 3rd was the kitchenette, which my husband and I had. The set up here was by far the best fit for families or groups. Plenty of grassy areas for the kids to run, picnic areas with grills, and best of all the community... More

We spent 2 nights at this motel. We were in 46 upstairs. We had 2 double beds with a t.v. In a separate room was a microwave, small frig, kitchenette with a sink, and a bathroom without a sink. There was a deck off of this room through sliding glass doors with a view over the pool. It was clean,... More

I've stayed in several 'mom and pop' motels when traveling in Michigan and have pretty good luck with all of them. This one blew all the others out of the water!!! I booked a room based, solely, on the reviews here and was not steered wrong. FYI, the driveway loops around the entire property and can get tight in places... More

We stay in the Ludington area frequently to visit family and this was our first stay at Nader's but it won't be our last. The price was very reasonable and we almost passed it up due to the low price. This is a second generation family motel and they take great pride in keeping it clean, neat and well maintained....

We really enjoyed our stay this weekend. The room was clean with all of the usual amenities. The owner was very friendly. We loved Ludington too. The hotel is very close to Ludington State Park. Highly recommended!
