Had a great stay at the Ludington Pier House. We had no reservation, yet the friendly front desk person offered us a discount! Our rooms were very clean, big and comfy. Our child loved the indoor pool and being right next to the beach with a playground. We enjoyed walking to downtown Ludington and found some lovely cafés, restaurants and...

Great location but very run down. Tub wasn't cleaned once during our 4 day stay. To be fair, though, I did not complain about the tub to the front office although I should have. No fan in bathroom, just a window.

We at the Ludington Pier House take our guests' happiness to heart, as we are a small family-owned business with housekeeping staff that returns each season. During your stay, I wish you had brought your issues to our attention so we could've had the chance to make it right. We...

The beach is a block away. Downtown Ludington is a short walk. We parked our car and didn't move it again until departure day. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had a shared balcony with chairs to relax. Bed was comfy. Some rooms have a view of Lake Michigan, ours did. There is an indoor pool. We didn't use...

You cannot see the beach from the room but you can see it from the front yard...it is that close to walk there. It is also a short walk to a restaurant/icecream shop. We found a route to walk to the SS Badger around the marinas so we did not need a taxi. It was probably a 15-20 minute walk....

We were very happy with our stay at the Pier House . Very clean and comfortable beds. Very quiet too. We wanted to extend our stay one more night but they were totally booked. We were so disappointed. Indoor pool was great, couldn't get the kids out of the water! I would recommend this little motel to anyone!

This was our first stay at the Pier House. We stayed here because we could not find anything at Nader's but I was happy enough with our stay. The room was big enough, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. We stayed in the house in the back of the main motel. It was pretty private and quite quiet....

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Ludington Pier House! Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate our guests' opinions in order to know what we can do to make you more comfortable.

We have gone to Ludington for years! We were only able to stay 1 night this year due to a very hectic family schedule, but it wouldn't be summer if we didn't make it up to the lighthouses and the delightful town of Luddington! We love the Pier house location, gorgeous room, and the delightful staff. Our stay was short...

My husband and I stayed for 3 nights the week of 7/15/13. Everything positive in the reviews is true - very clean, nice location and friendly staff. Hotel is nothing fancy but had all the amenities we needed (except hair dryer which they graciously provided). Our room 203 looked to be recently updated and included refrigerator and microwave.

We came to this hotel around 8:30 PM after driving from Mackinaw City. The staff was friendly and we rented a room with two queen sized beds.
