“Comfortable and close to downtown and ferry.”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We stayed at the Pier house for one night passing through Ludington to take the Ferry. The room was sizable and had enough beds for my family of 5. The room was clean and had extra pillows, 2 luggage racks and extra towels. The indoor pool was nice and a perfect temperature and very clean. The person that took my reservation was pleasant and helpful. The lady at the front desk on check in was friendly and we were also able to check in 2 hours early which was nice after such a long drive. The hotel is close to everything, the beach, state park, downtown just a great location. We did have a couple issues during our stay with the plumbing. The toilet overflowed and then the shower/tub backed up and had a slow drain during use. The problems were taken care of by staff quickly. Our room was not dark and facing the main street so we got noise from people walking by and laughing late at night (no fault of the hotel but something to consider if you stay on the mail floor facing the main street). The shades are not black out and our room had a door with a window with a mini blind so we had some light in the room. If you prefer a dark room to sleep it may be something to mention. We would stay again and enjoyed our short stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on main floor facing street can be noisy. Our room did not have darkening shades that could...

Thank you for your review of the Ludington Pier House. I am sorry that you experienced issues with the toilet in your room, but thank you for promptly bringing these issues to our attention. I'm glad our staff was able to take care of it for you in a timely manner. We appreciate your suggestions regarding darker curtains for the room and we have passed them along to the owner.

We hope to welcome you back to our property in the future!

Room 216 was a really nice large room with 4 windows. It was two queen beds. I highly suggest this room as it was much bigger than the one bed queen room that my parents stayed in. The beds were fine. I am used to a much softer bed, but falling asleep wasn't a problem. I have really bad allergies to dust and mold, but was able to breathe comfortably. Its location is prime and the indoor pool is convenient. I wish the pool hours were later 10 PM just seems too early.

Room Tip: room 216 is I am guessing the best room

My husband, 17 month old daughter and I stayed at the Pierhouse in a recent weekend trip to Ludington. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Check in was easy, you have actual metal keys for your room. We stayed in the east building which was clean and looked recently updated. Our room viewed the roof of the pool house. It was not an ideal room for a stay with a toddler. Not enough room to run and play, but it would have been perfect had if bee just my husband and I. The location was awesome! A very short walk to the beach, restaurants (House of Flavors for ice cream), marina and playground. The indoor pool was clean, but chilly. We would stay in the west building next time with a view of the lake and outdoor chairs.

Perfect location...within walking distance of everything! This is a beachy motel with average rooms but absolutely SPOTLESS. The staff is super friendly. We can't wait to go back next year family friendly but perfect for couples too

We accidentally came down a day earlier than when we booked. The woman at the desk was SO helpful in finding us another hotel for the night. When we did check in the next day the room was nice. Not real fancy or updated but very clean. The staff was very friendly. Our 3 kids enjoyed the pool. If you want to stay in the heart of it all, this is the place to be!! Located about a block from the beach and within walking distance from shopping and restaurants. I would definitely book here again.

We stayed one night and would have stayed longer but too cold. The location is excellent as it is easy walk to beach and short ride to restaurants. The hotel is older but clean and quiet. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. If you like beaches and recreation you should stay here.

The staff is very helpful and friendly.

The hotel has a noisy and very bright coke machine outside the window of room #105. The drapes are not thick enough to block the light so you are in an eerie red glow all night long. The management should either turn it off late night, move it to face away from the window or add better drapes to the room.

They pump you for Trip Advisor reviews after you stay. It's just a hotel, nothing special, not different than so many others.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms seem a better choice.

I'm sorry that your did not fully enjoy your stay. In order to properly address your concern, I wonder if you talked to anyone in the office about the inconvenience of the bright light outside your room? I see that we did have other rooms available the evening you stayed, and I know that had it been brought to our attention, we would have been happy to do what we could to make you happy. Because of your suggestions, the halogen lights inside the coke display have been removed as to not disturb future guests. I hope you will consider the Pier House in the future.
