The room was very clean, as previous reviewers have mentioned. It is a basic motel room adequate for a few nights. My four-star rating for this place is within a “basic motel” category, so I’m not comparing it with motels and hotels of higher or lower classes. Pets are not welcome at this motel, which is one of the top reasons why we selected it. The water pipes made a lot of noise when the neighbors took a shower, and you will hear quite some general noise from the surrounding rooms. Although there are no hairdryers in the room, just go to the office and ask for one, and they’ll give you a hairdryer to use while you are there. The pool was clean.

The motel’s location just a few hundred feet from the Ludington City Beach was great. And the breakwater out to the lighthouse starts right at the beach. It makes for a very nice walk out to the lighthouse each night.

We weren't sure about this reservation, as it wasn't a major chain but rather a "mom & pop" kind of place in the right location. We were blown away by this wonderful hotel. The location couldn't have been more perfect, and it's also been maintained extremely well. It feels very fresh and clean. The rooms are lovely. The pool/ hot tub were excellent. Very comfortable and enjoyable - and the price was right! The ultimate measure of a good hotel is once you're there - if you wish you'd stayed somewhere else....we keep commenting that we were thrilled with our choice and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else - this will be such a good memory of staying in Ludington! Also, thoroughly enjoyed the walk out to the lighthouse that someone recommended...try to do it when the SS Badger is coming or going - quite an experience! We watched it arrive from the dock, so we could see it unload all the semis / etc. and then watched it leave for Wisconsin from the lighthouse - a whole different experience!

The place was beautiful!! The staff was super friendly and willing to answer any questions we had! The rooms were super clean and well maintained!!! The pool is probably one of the cleanest pools we've seen in awhile!! Perfect location to the beach and downtown!!

We truly enjoyed our stay at Ludington Pier House. The two most important issues for me when choosing a hotel room for my family are location and cleanliness. Ludington Pier House gets an A++ for both. Located a few minutes walk from the beach (almost literally a hop, skip, and a jump away), you cannot beat the Pier House's location. We were able to see the SS Badger coming and going from the balcony right outside our room. While the rooms and motel are not brand new, they are obviously very well cared for. The rooms are spotless - - and I'm very picky. The grounds are beautifully maintained with everything freshly painted and cleaned. The pool is, yet another, well-maintained, clean area. The pool area is very private and inviting, an oasis of sorts, with a deck, tables with umbrellas, and chaise lounges. The same person was working in the office when we checked in and out. She was very friendly and offered information without me even asking. She was very professional. We will definitely stay here again! We stayed two nights and wished we could have stayed a week. We love Ludington . . . and we really enjoyed the Ludington Pier House. Ludington has some of the most beautiful beaches you'll find anywhere!

Room Tip: I'd ask for a second floor room in the motel (versus the brick building). You'll be able to see the SS Badger!

My husband and I stayed three nights in the brick unit. It was very clean, comfortable, and appeared to be recently updated. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room had a t.v., but no microwave, refrigerator, or hair dryer. The rate for the room was very reasonable, so we didn't mind few amenities. The location is wonderful, within walking distance of a beach and downtown. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Ludington.
