We had been talking about trying to find a room in a motel like this during our trip. We had just visited downtown, and we're heading out of town when we saw a vacancy on the sign at this motel. When we checked in at the desk Dave told us of some nice motorcycle rides to Pentwater. We were on... More

The Viking Arms is a motor motel and a good place to stop for the night. The rooms were clean as well as the grounds. They have a pool and whirlpool too. I appreciated the outdoor gazebo and chairs to sit outside. The motel is a little far from the beach and downtown area to walk to. We were going... More

My wife and I decided to get away for a few days and we set our sights on Ludington, Michigan. Since this was just a short stay, we wanted to find a clean, well-maintained, motel, close to downtown and the beach, and reasonably priced. That's a tall order for any resort location but we were determined to find just such... More

Nice Clean Place To Stay. Reasonably Priced & Friendly. Good value for the money. There is no fridge. Also has a minimal continental breakfast. Will stay again when passing through Ludington Michigan.

Nice rooms. Quiet, clean and comfortable. Dave the owner is very nice and helpful, a great guy! Pool, gazebo, parking for each room- no scrambling to get a space by your room! Coffee and small breakfast bar as well. I have stayed here several times in the past, it is a great value and a nice place to stay in... More

My son and I stayed at The Viking Arms Inn for one night. It was clean and well-maintained. The room itself was a decent size for a motel. We had a room with two double beds, and my only complaint would be that the mattress was very firm, even to the point that I'd say it was hard and somewhat... More

Cute Motel, nice accomodations, pool and continental breakfast. Call Inn directly to get single bed - better prices than online!!! It was close to town, the beaches and the SS Badger ferry.

Best part of the room was the large Jacuzzi tub! The bed was extremely uncomfortable. Couldn't get the Tigers game on the television but had a lot of different channels to watch. It was a nice stay, just wished the bed was somewhat decent. Good size room for two people, wouldn't put more than that.

We were on the road for 11 days, and this was the most we paid for any motel. It is a nice, clean place, but nothing special. The room was small but comfortable. We had our 3" mattress toppers to put on the beds so we slept well. The cold breakfast and hot coffee were fine. The owner/manager was friendly... More

As some have indicated it's dated, but clean. Owners are nice. Stay was enjoyable. wifi worked ok. Suggest a room to the rear as the road noise can be an issue. Nice pool area, plenty of resturants near by,
