Recent guest reviews

The staff were very kind and friendly, and the breakfast had a lot of variety for a continental breakfast. There was a nice area outside to eat and a small playground. The building itself could have used a little more care and attention to detail. The musty smell in the rooms made them seem less clean.

Staff was very friendly! The waffles and toppings were great; as were the breakfast staff. The kids enjoyed the pool, play area, and arcade. Overall good stay. Cons: The pillows were small and a bit uncomfortable; our room was right next to the steps/exit so we heard people going up and down the steps all night; and could smell cigarette smoke coming from the outside our window where the smokers congregated. However, could also see the play area from our window so that was a plus.

Close to my family that I was visiting. Room was kinda tight but clean. Staff was very nice and helpful. Nice to have indoor pool for the kids and hot tub for me. I would stay again.

We had a great time and is was all clean and very comfortable in every way.

The motel is a good value. The internet works fine and the breakfast is also OK.

I was very pleased with the size, layout, and quality of our room. I also enjoyed relaxing in the hottub and the massage chair in the lobby. The continental breakfast was also quite nice. I will stay here again if I visit Ludington.


My stay at this hotel was outstanding. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfy, and had great amenities. The breakfast was great, and theres everything you really need in this hotel. Pool and all.

Nice & Comfortable place for us. We enjoyed the very nice breakfast.

My wife and I stayed here for one night in advance of an early departure on the next morning's ferry to Wisconsin. The hotel was easy to find, the front desk person was friendly, and the room was spotless and comfortable. Breakfast bar was standard stuff but fine, and we were only about five minutes from the ferry. Exactly what we needed.

This hotel is a scam be careful. I was accused me of smoking in their room and charged my card $150. I do not smoke nor does any of my children (11 and 7 year olds). I will never visit this place again.

I paid almost two hundred dollars a night for a suite. The "living room" had one chair, a desk and a very small kitchenette, not much more than a standard room. My room was right across the hall from the indoor pool which was open to children until 10 p.m. Very noisy, with a heavy smell of chlorine and a very humid atmosphere. I was awakened every morning at 7 a.m. by the air conditioner making a very strange pounding noise. I was on a mini-vacation so had looked forward to sleeping in a bit. The hot breakfast was OK but after the first day I decided to go ut for a really good breakfast. Not much to recommend.

It was worth our while. A couple of things I'd suggest to hotel management is that:Breakfast was crowded and had to wait for the eggs/main dish - the kitchen couldn't keep up with it. Drawers in room had a scent so we decided we didn't want to put clothes in them. Websites talk about a water slide but there is none. Pool and hot tub were enjoyable. The employees were very helpful and nice.

You get what you pay for, right? Well, I paid about $90 and got a $90 experience. Which is what I wanted and expected. Room was clean, if not a little small. They enforce the 10-11 adult pool time, which is nice.

Pool and jacuzzi at this SplashPark were closed.(Not indicated on website) Room temp at check-in was freezing cold(They forgot to turn on the heat earlier in the day) Room was nice if not odd in its layout. Bedroom had separate door, allowing for tv viewing in the living room area( 2 TV's!) Great continental breakfast. Very nice location for the Ludington area.

I enjoyed my over night stay. Found the room clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great. The TV could use an upgrade but functional.

Wonderful Hotel! Very clean room!! Nice pool and water slide. Nice Staff, helpful!

This was my first trip alone, I felt very safe with the inside entrance and several families staying with the children. If I ever go to Ludington again I will be sure to choose this Best Western

The hotel is fine, nothing special but clean and comfortable. The receptionist was great. But they market this as having a "water park" and even give you armbands for it. The water park is a modest pool, hot tub, and one story plastic slide with, I think one 360. It is a nice addition to a regular motel, but I can just imagine the crestfallen faces of kids and their parents to book this hotel expecting a water park.

We have stayed in this motel several times, but not in the last couple of years. We picked it because of the waterslide inside the pool area. We still enjoyed that aspect very much, but the room itself left a lot to be desired. The sink was very slow to drain, the toilet seat had an ugly stain on it and the room ws very small.
