We have stayed at the Pier House for years and continue to love it! For starters, the location is great - one block to the beach, walking distance to House of Flavors and downtown, a few blocks to a park to watch the sunset and the ferry boats come in. The rooms are spacious and so clean and fresh -...

Our room happened to be in second building that houses the indoor pool. Inconvenient of getting ice, parking on a side street, and facing away from the lake view. We would have prefered the cutesy building as pictured. However, our room was very clean, comfortable, and walking distance to the lake.

Ludington Pier House is in two separate buildings, which are old but nicely updated. Our room with 2 queen beds was clean and spacious. We were in the East building, which has limited parking on the street. We had to park by the West building and walk around to our building. There is no elevator and the stairs are a...

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay. We stayed in a room that is in the older part of the complex. The room was very clean and the bed and pillows were amazingly comfortable. The building was quaint and our room was nicely decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The complex was only a block or so from Lake Michigan....

This is a 1960s era motel. It was clean and served its purpose for one night. The walls are thin and I was happy when the person above me quit pacing the room about midnight. My wife found out you have to request a hair dryer at the front desk. Free but slow WiFi. Nice indoor pool and hot tub....

We'd taken the Badger Ferry over from Manitowoc and wanted a place close to the marina area. The Pier House was perfect. It's an old brick building with modern rooms and a nice pool/whirlpool. Walking distance to downtown and a block from the beach. We loved our stay, and we'll be back!

This is a very clean place to stay. The owner was very accommodating. We hadn't brought along a hair dryer & noticed there were none in the room - when we asked about it, she said they are kept in the office. The beds & pillows were very soft & comfortable. It is just a short walk to the beach...

This is a very clean and affordable place to spend the night. It is within five minutes of the ferry location. The only drawback was there is no hair dryers in the rooms and when you realize that the front desk clerk is gone for the night. Overall very acceptable.
