We only stayed one night but will definitely stay again if we visit Ludington again. The room was spotless, furnished nicely and very comfortable after a day's travel. It has the charm of an old style motel with modern updates and amenities that you see in some of the upscale hotels. Not far from the beach and tucked away in... More

This room was a very good value. This hotel is just off the lake shore and a short (10 minute). It is in several building around a pool. The staff is very nice. The rooms are good size, clean, and in good condition. I stayed here while waiting for the ferry.

Clean, comfortable, and convenient. This is a great place to stay and very reasonable considering it is in a tourist town. Would definitely stay here again. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice stay.

We spent a night at Nader's in Ludington before catching the SS Badger to Manitowoc. It is convenient to the ship and was the most reasonably priced lodging that we could find. We did not use any of the amenities, however, the pool did look clean and the room while not the newest was well-maintained. One improvement that could be... More

My 16 year old son and I stayed here for one night. We just needed somewhere to crash. Very clean room. Pool looked great. Will definitely stay here on our next trip to Ludington in a few weeks. They had outdoor grills to use also.

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!
