The Ramsdell Inn is pricey for the town, but not overpriced for the quality of the rooms and service.
Visited Manistee on a weekend in June. My first thought was," Where the hell is everyone?". My second thought was," There must have been a huge fire, or some economic downturn that turned this place into a ghost town." I could not find any evidence of that on the internet.
Back to hotel, building is old, charming and awesome in many ways. Staff is very nice. TJ's bar downstairs has good food and great drinks. Room was very spacious. Bed was very comfortable. Street parking is free.
