The owner was super nice and the place was clean and cute! The location is also perfect in proximity to the beach and downtown. I would definitely stay there again. And of course it's very close to the house of flavors which has Michigan pot hole ice cream.

Went to Ludington for a family wedding and stayed here at this cute little motel. It sits right on the corner here on the main street in the town of Ludington. The place is really great.

I felt like I was staying with a friend in their guest room. Everything was perfect and the room was spotless!!! Loved the town, everything was in walking distance. Can't wait to visit again. I was traveling with my 15 year old granddaughter and she loved it too. The beds were very comfortable and cozy.

Lighthouse motel is conveniently located near the waterfront and the SS Badger. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Coffee and donuts were available in the lobby every morning. You can walk to the parks, shopping and restaurants.

Positives: clean, comfortable, great location, pleasant environment, good value Negatives: compact quarters We usually stay at major chain hotels because of their quality control procedures and strong financial resources.

On a Michigan Lighthouse tour with friends. Rooms are clean, cozy and each room cuter than the next. Price was great. Just all over a great experience. Would go back in a heartbeat. Very close to the lake and within walking, distance of a fun restaurant.

Loved the Lighthouse Motel. So happy we decided to stay at this charming motel instead of some cookie cutter chain hotel. Clean, nicely appointed rooms, two blocks from the beach, charming atmosphere and friendly staff. Coffee, donuts and muffins in the office in the morning. Could not have been happier with our stay!
