TripAdvisor Rating


Located just a handful of blocks from the downtown core of Ludington, the Summers Inn is a short walk from shops, restaurants, the S.S. Badger car ferry to Wisconsin, and the famous Lake Michigan beaches, and a short drive from epic sand dunes. A room with two full beds will suit most small families looking for a non-chain hotel to make their headquarters during a western Michigan adventure. Most impressively, the Summers Inn offers all guests a full service breakfast with home baked bread and locally sourced ingredients to produce an omelet station, fresh fruit display and more courtesy of local Michigan farms. Parking and Wi-Fi are complimentary and all rooms have air-conditioning.

Updated Motel

by Katie G

This motel was great. It has clearly been recently updated and modernized. The rooms and beds are super comfortable within a great private location off a major highway. Breakfast is served fresh every day with homemade bread, which we could smell baking at check-in the night before. This is all included in the price of the room, no extra charge for an amazing breakfast, way better than staying at a chain hotel. Absolutely beautiful!

Remodeled Motel

I will say first that I am a tough reviewer. Why shouldn't we all be? My expectations were not met here.The decor in the room was very pleasant and new. The bed was not very comfortable. The one light over the bed did not work. Bulb or just faulty, I did not have time to check. The bathroom (not updated since the 50's when yellow tile was popular) was the size of two small phone booths. There was no way two people could use the bathroom at the same time so keep that in mind if you are on a schedule. The woman at the check-in desk was as disinterested in doing her job as anyone could be. It took forever to check in, so the personnel and process both have need of improvement. The clerk for example demanded a phone number for a phone we carried with us at all times. Really? My husband was attending a conference in which he had no intent of having his phone on. A phone number is an acceptable request, but when I have it turned on and when I don't is none of their business. Parking is very limited and tight. It was quiet during the day but the older wall air conditioner was very noisy. Although it brags about sit down breakfast, it is not. You were brought bread in which you had to go to the counter to toast yourself. Juice, coffee, table ware, napkins, condiments, etc. were all for you to get yourself. The only difference from hotel chains was that if you wanted an omelette they brought it to you. It should simply say on their website "Nice buffet breakfast." I have no problem with chain hotel breakfasts, nor this one; just don't brag about sit down breakfasts when it is not. And of course they wanted you to bus your own tables and on the way out use the tip jar! The price on the website for rooms is $108 but our bill for two nights was $300 including taxes. BEWARE, I booked (by mistake!) through Cheap which charged another $15 for the booking. My mistake but maybe you can avoid it by calling the Inn directly. Cheap Tickets has many BBB complaints and once they have your email they will hound you daily with offers and take weeks to remove you from their email list, even after several requests.
