Our room was clean and well decorated. The bathroom was very large and renovated. It was located in the middle of downtown with some great restaurants and shops. It was a quiet and comfortable place to stay.

Everyone knows Manistee is a town with great history, beginning with the lumber industry and salt mines to the boat building, sand mining and garment making. My husband is from this town and we love going back every year for the 4th of July 'Manistee National Forest Festival." I was not disappointed to spend 3 nights there at the Ramsdell... More

The Ramsdell is a clean and beautiful inn. We stayed in the Jefferson room which is gorgeous & comfortable. The owners are gracious and enjoyable to talk with about the area. The Pub is a great spot for food and drink. Located only a mile from Lake Michigan, you can take the scenic Riverwalk all the way to the lighthouse.

My parents and I decided to stop into Manistee, Mi on our way to Travese City, and head to The Ramsdell Inn to visit an old friend of my parents. The lady, my parents' friend, no longer worked there but to my surprise, as I am an architectural buff, the building was gorgeous. There is a pub on the main... More

We spent a weekend here and had a great time in Manistee. I love it when I can park, and not use the car again until it's time to go home. This historic building is beautiful, I loved counting the steps to our room (53) because there are no elevators. The layout of the room was unique, the shower -amazing!... More

We loved the Ramsdell. The rooms are beautiful. Bed and bedding including pillows was so comfortable. The owner let us take a peak at one of the vacant suites and it would definitely be worth a visit. Great location just steps away from the river walk, the Vogue theater, a coffee shop. Would stay again if we plan another Manistee... More

We only stayed one night in the Hollister Suite. The room was very nice, clean and tidy. The bed was very comfortable too! A couple of warnings though, this room is right next to the stairs so, there is a little bit of hallway noise but not terrible. Secondly, this hotel is above a restaurant/bar. TJ's is a great place... More
