While traveling back from the U.P., we decided to take the SS Badger across Lake Michigan to Wisconsin. We needed a place to stay overnight to catch the ship in the morning. The Inn at Ludington was exactly what we needed. The rates were reasonable, check in and check out was quick and easy, the room we had was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent!

We arrived to the B and B super excited to celebrate our anniversary after reading all the great reviews and viewing the pictures, only to arrive and for it to not meet our expectations. The inn keeper was not there when we arrived, we walked in to the Bed and Breakfast only to smell grease and heavy marijuana smell. We walked through the inn and flys were swarming the bread and Oreos she had left out, the furniture which is old and unique is definitely in need of a good cleaning and refreshing. We walked to our room only to find that it is small, creaky and out to date. Nothing is updated which was fine for the most part. But the smell was horrendous. We decided immediately we could not stay we called the lady in charge and she said she would call us in 20 minutes and here hours later still no phone call back, only a email saying we were still responsible cost, which is fine I don’t care, but definitely not worth the price if your looking for a great clean place. The communication was poor. The smell of marijuana was horrendous and at least a explanation or some sort should be explained for the loss we took but she did not give us a option

We stayed one night. The outside needs a lot of work on weeds and maintenance. Everything worked but the rooms are filled with a museum of old stuff. The breakfast was great and the innkeeper made extra effort as we needed to get to the ferry. This is an old place.

The outside appearance of the inn was a bit disappointing. It was in need of some TLC. Our room was on the small side for the money. The air conditioner was loud an a bit annoying. The bed was not very comfortable. The cheerfulness of the staff and the breakfast made up for any other deficits. There was a wonderful variety and everything was delicious.

We stopped for one night in Ludington on our way to Door County, Wisconsin via the SS Badger. We had a lovely stopover at the Inn at Ludington. Beautifully furnished, roomy historic home. Caution: there are many steps and stairs. We had to climb up to the second floor.. and then down more stairs into our room. No one greeted us upon arrival- just a note- and no help with luggage. And, our shower was super small. But- the amazing breakfast, with a Norwegian baked oatmeal dish, was delightful.
