We were looking for a location close to the West Michigan Fairground, and that it was...1 mile away. The room was very clean and quiet even though it is near US 10. The room rate was very reasonable, considering it is in a recreational area. Management was very pleasant when checking in, and when questions were asked. I would definitely... More

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 October 2016

I had a very pleasant experience staying at the Viking Arms Inn! It was an overnight stay between sailings of the S.S. Badger. The check in process was fast and friendly. The room was very clean! The comfort of the bed was fine. The TV had more channels to choose from than many other of the upscale places I usually... More

The room was clean and quiet. The location of the Inn was excellent if one was taking the SS Badger car ferry across to Wisconsin. It is right next to a very large, very clean laundry if one is needed on a long trip.

We booked here on a last minute get a away. Room was very reasonable, and we were very pleasantly surprised at the quality and cleanliness of the room. Situated close to downtown and other features in Ludington. Management was very friendly and courteous. Not fancy, but we would definitely stay again

Fairly inexpensive place to stay. The rooms are nice. It's clean. They have Wi-Fi. We would definitely come back on another trip up north. The restroom was nice, good lighting and available electrical outlets.

The owner was very friendly and helpful, he even offered rags to wipe the morning dew off our motorcycles. The room and the grounds were clean and well kept. There is a gazebo (which is actually the only smoking area on the grounds) which was a great place to spend the evening socializing. And the price was very reasonable.

Been here several times and never been disappointed. But it's getting a little worn this trip. Bed still OK but needs some padding. Will be back but it needs some tender loving care. Pool is nice as is the hot tub.

Rooms and grounds are clean. Great for a nights stay as beds are not overly comfortable. The pool and hot tub are well maintained. Complimentary coffee and rolls in the morning. Bathrooms and shower quite small. Short five minute ride into town.

The motel is a little dated but otherwise nice. Liked the outdoor heated pool and convenience of being able to park the car right in front of the room to unload. The only dislike is that the mattresses were not very comfortable and the bathroom very tiny for such a pricey room. Otherwise, the room was nice and clean and... More
