Stayed here on our way back to Chicago from Mackinac island. We were there less than 12 hours, so we didn't get to experience many of the amenities. We even slept too late for the breakfast which ended at 9:30 am - that seems kind of early especially on a weekend. The beds were comfortable, though my daughter disliked the...

This is a great place to see. There is a great deal to see with great restaurants. Jordyn helped solve our phone problem. Iesha helped us to select a restaurant and were helpful here at the motel. There were restaurant guides and maps. Old Hamlin Restaurant was very great with a large selection of food and it was in the...

Our family of four (kids ages 12 and 14) stayed here for 3 nights on vacation after crossing Lake Michigan on the SS Badger. This was our first time in Michigan. We all agree that the hotel was satisfactory for the price, but not a definite "must stay". The standard two queen bed room felt small for our family of...

We stayed in a suite, which was more like an apartment. It included a large, full kitchen, a small living area, two bedrooms and a small bathroom. There were plenty of closets for storage, too. Overall, the room was dated, but clean. It was nice to have so much space for our family. The cost was a good value, and...

There is Nothing real special about this place but clean. Easy to find and easy to access. Rooms are nothing special. Lots of kids in the indoor pool and wow the water was scummy the next morning. The free breakfast is great. We found the Bed not comfortable.

Stayed two nights at this well-staffed, pleasantly maintained and appointed hotel. Our room was neat and clean and showed only modest sign of wear and tear. The small fridge, microwave, nice flat screen TV, small desk and internet service all worked fine. Seemed a bit pricey for middle-of-the road, standard two-bed room, but given the summer resort nature of Ludngton,...
