The people on the phone were very rude. After I booked my rate, the manager called me back the next day and said she needed to raise the rate because I was quoted the wrong price. She further explained to me that since it was a tournament weekend I would be braceleted and guard checked at the door and my mother couldn't come in the room. The place isn't that special that I would forgo my civil rights to stay there. It is old, smelly, and antiquated. Furthermore, who runs a business where they try to jack confirmed rates over the phone once they have you sucked into staying there.....It should be the stearns motor jail.

This is a hotel in downtown Ludington, a city on the beaches of Lake Michigan in North/West Michigan. Nice tourist city.

It is old. Not charming. I stayed because of the low rate of $39.00 (off summer season rate).

Carpets are very old and dated. The bed was springy. Literally, I could feel the spring coils. The water pressure was weak and I was one of only about 15 guests at the hotel. Also, the ceiling plaster was coming undone.

It was clean though.

I would not stay here again.
