Clean, comfortable, and convenient. This is a great place to stay and very reasonable considering it is in a tourist town. Would definitely stay here again. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Nice stay.

Everything you would need at a great price. Comfortable clean room well equipted in a great location. Went for a fishing trip and the room had everything you would want. Will definitely use again. Prepaid for a great price compared to other options in the area.

We spent a night at Nader's in Ludington before catching the SS Badger to Manitowoc. It is convenient to the ship and was the most reasonably priced lodging that we could find. We did not use any of the amenities, however, the pool did look clean and the room while not the newest was well-maintained. One improvement that could be...

My 16 year old son and I stayed here for one night. We just needed somewhere to crash. Very clean room. Pool looked great. Will definitely stay here on our next trip to Ludington in a few weeks. They had outdoor grills to use also.

I had a lovely room on the second floor of the main building. I believe it would qualify as suite - there was a room separate from the bedroom with table and two chairs, mini-fridge and coffee maker (although there was not outlet available in that room and to make coffee I needed to take the tray to the bedroom...

This was my first time staying in Ludington. I was excited to find a place that accepted dogs and had an outdoor pool. The previous reviews I read were great so I decided to give Naders a try. What a mistake. When I made the reservation, a very nice lady told me I could check in anytime after 1 pm....

Nader's was an absolutely perfect fit for my family of five. It was super clean, very well maintained, had a comfy bed, good shower, fridge and microwave, and (drumroll please) free wifi that actually worked! It is an easy five minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan, Sterns Beach, and also has a pool, large...

Close to the public beach and state park . Ample parking, plenty of room for our boat. The room was excellent and was pristine ! Beds were very comfortable. We were only able to book one night but we will definitely be back!

Nicely maintained property with heated pool for extended season. Apparently many repeat customers were staying , which speaks for itself. Very close proximity to the Lake Michigan shore, could see it from the balcony.

We love Nader's after discovering it last summer. So we specifically drove north to Ludington to enjoy our last night on the beach and stay here. Last summer we were in the new addition which was like staying in an apartment and very updated. This summer we stayed in the 1st floor of the 2 story side by the pool....
