Great place. Very clean with very friendly owners. Only place we will stay in Ludginton. The owners were very helpful with any info we needed and what was going on in town and in the area.Very close to shops and downtown.

This is an ok place, it's old but well kept up. The bed was very hard. The whirlpool tub was not that clean, it had a ring around it that felt a little scumby. It was quiet and the pool was nice, altho, it was too cool outside to swim.

Nice clean rooms and an easy walk to downtown. We were in town for the Suds on the Shore craft beer festival and had a great time. Staff was great. We forgot our festival glasses and t-shirts in the room and they happily mailed them to us. Great service!

The grounds are clean, and well maintained. The room was clean enough but in need of updates, Especially the beds...Musty, hard mattresses on both beds in our room. With allergies, I was up most of the night because of it. Aside from the awful beds, the pool is nice, it's close to conveniences, and reasonable room rates.

I stayed here recently during a trip to Michigan. This is an older, single level motel located on the main road going into Ludington, a popular Lake Michigan resort town. Because this is a tourist town, presumably all the lodgings are relatively expensive and the Viking Arms is no exception. My room was well over $100 for one night. It...

Ludington is a wonderful place to stay,and the Viking Arms Inn is a good choice to stay while visiting. My room was excellent. It was very clean,and peaceful. I really loved staying there. I've paid much more at other places not near as nice. I honestly can't think of a thing bad to say about it. Will be staying there...

One of the cleanest motels I've ever encountered. Ultra clean updated basic room, quiet surroundings, comfortable bed and crystal clear pool and whirlpool. Nice to see a 1950's style motel in such perfect condition. The owners are friendly and seem to be working constantly. I saw one of the owners actually sweeping the parking lot with a wooden broom! When...
