A friend and I stopped for a drink at the bar because we had never been inside and wanted to see the place. It felt like we entered a private club... everyone seemed to know each other, and we were not wanted. No one came to our table, so I stood at the bar while the bartender chatted. And waited....

My wife and I heard the house of Ludington had a great fish fry but havent been there in 20 years so we tried it. Awesome is the word, I had 13 pieces of delicious perch on my plate for $16! I think it was a dry rub coating on them and it wasn't greasy at all. The sides were... More

We were on our way west on a cross country drive and stumbled across the House of Ludington. What a nice surprise! Is it Caesar's Palace? No, but it was warm, cozy, very reasonably-priced, and the owners (who also run a bar/restaurant inside) were beyond friendly and accommodating our last-second arrival. They recommended a place to eat that was one... More

My wife and I had a reservation for a room. We drove 360 miles, and looked forward to staying in a historic hotel for the evening before traveling onward to Marquette. When we made it to the hotel, the door was locked, and a sign was hung stating that the hotel was "closed due to a wedding". What gives? My... More

This would be a great place to rent with friends for a Halloween weekend! It has it's charms, but let's say this hotel isn't for most people. Read the whole review, then decide. It's a throwback from the past; it looks & acts like it. Built in 1864, the lobby retains elements of an historic past and it must have... More
