We checked in with a big group (someone else made the reservations) and it was quite the process. The front desk clerk, while kind, was easily flustered and took some time for us all to check in to our rooms. The hotel, while historic, is extremely dated. I felt like I was back in time. We thought the elevator was... More

We don’t like to hear that anyone was displeased with their stay at our hotel and we are glad that you took the time to give us a review, however we are slightly confused by its contents. For someone who didn’t have much to say about our hotel, what you did say was that we are historic, dated, made you... More

What a gem! Rich in history. A small quaint hotel reasonably priced. Clean comfy rooms. I like to try and imagine what it was like back in 1903 when it was built. Lots of nice old photos to peruse. The bar looked nice but was closed on the Tuesday we stayed. We'd stay there again without a doubt.

Mr. Stearns built this historic hotel in 1910 and it appears that not much has been done to do it justice. I cannot compare this to other historic hotels I have stayed in because they have been kept up quite well.

St earns was built in 1903-old and charming-not fancy or modern but a good value. A:c was great as was water pressure in shower-coffee in the morning with fruit and a few sweet breakfast items-right near downtown -a bit far to walk to beech but 2 min drive

The rooms are neat and clean. I like how there is a small refrigerator and microwave. The morning coffee and snacks are nice choice, also the people are so nice and helpful. Just a nice place to be and the town is nice to walk and see all the shops.

We stayed for a wedding reception which was held at Stearns motor inn. This made it very convenient. Room was nice, older but nice. Close to downtown shopping and restaurants/bars. Hotel staff was very friendly!

After traveling all day my 6 year old daughter and I checked in to Stearns Motor Inn around 11:00 PM for a 4 night stay. Check in was a breeze and the front desk clerk was super friendly. She directed us to our room and invited us to the lobby in the morning for fresh coffee, pastries and fresh fruit!... More

My wife and I spent just over a week at Stearns Motor Inn in Ludington, and it was a very good experience. This is a classic old hotel, the 'jewel' of the original downtown area, so it is within walking distance of everything - downtown, beach, Park Dairy (now known as 'House of Flavors' - Badger Trainferry, etc. Nothing too...

Can not say anything bad at all. The staff wentnout of their way to make our stay pleasant. Our room was spotless and very comfortable. (Jacuzzi and fireplace was nice) some people complain there's no breakfast but they had coffee and fresh fruit in the morning. When I wake up coffee is the only thing on my mind and who... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Stearns multiple times and even were married there in the ballroom in 2015. We came up for an impromptu getaway and were greeted at the desk with the news that we were upgraded for being such loyal customers. The front desk treated us well and gave us late checkout. We also had... More
