I had a lovely room on the second floor of the main building. I believe it would qualify as suite - there was a room separate from the bedroom with table and two chairs, mini-fridge and coffee maker (although there was not outlet available in that room and to make coffee I needed to take the tray to the bedroom...

This was my first time staying in Ludington. I was excited to find a place that accepted dogs and had an outdoor pool. The previous reviews I read were great so I decided to give Naders a try. What a mistake. When I made the reservation, a very nice lady told me I could check in anytime after 1 pm.... More

Nader's was an absolutely perfect fit for my family of five. It was super clean, very well maintained, had a comfy bed, good shower, fridge and microwave, and (drumroll please) free wifi that actually worked! It is an easy five minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan, Sterns Beach, and also has a pool, large... More

Close to the public beach and state park . Ample parking, plenty of room for our boat. The room was excellent and was pristine ! Beds were very comfortable. We were only able to book one night but we will definitely be back!

Nicely maintained property with heated pool for extended season. Apparently many repeat customers were staying , which speaks for itself. Very close proximity to the Lake Michigan shore, could see it from the balcony.

We love Nader's after discovering it last summer. So we specifically drove north to Ludington to enjoy our last night on the beach and stay here. Last summer we were in the new addition which was like staying in an apartment and very updated. This summer we stayed in the 1st floor of the 2 story side by the pool.... More

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
