While I enjoyed my one night stay at House of Ludington it isn’t for everyone… This is a historical hotel that has keys hanging behind the desk. When you check in you get a key to the front door so after hours you can come and go. It reminds me of some of the small hotels I have stayed at... More

The room was clean, and the people were very friendly. But this is an old hotel with low quality updates. There is also a lot of stuff all over the place. It is a quirky, interesting building but it doesn't really feel historic in the rooms. The restaurant is great with super atmosphere, very good food and surprising variety. It... More

A key word is "experience". We absolutely loved our 3 night/4 day stay. Most mornings my hubby went downstairs and made the coffee because he was the first person up. We had a waterfront queen room with windows that opened to allow in the beautiful breeze. How refreshing to stay somewhere that was not hermetically sealed! Room rates are commensurate... More

We were in the U.P. two nights ago driving towards Escanaba in a downpour when we heard a commercial for House of Ludington come on the radio. We decided to stay the night and eagerly drove into town and found the hotel. Guess what? All locked up for the night (and I believe this was before 9pm)! There was a... More

My daughter loved the history of the House of Ludington and wanted her guests to experience the history first hand.

From the complimentary sangria to the farewell picture had a great time. Didnt see anything supernatural but our hallway could have been taken from the movie the shinning (redrum). They were very organized and was ready for our group of twenty four people. If you want a little piece of history then this is the place to stay. The hotel... More

Don't have your wedding here. Unless Suzell realizes she needs to make some serious changes, I will not be recommending the House of Ludington to anyone. I chose this place because I loved the idea of the ambience of an old hotel...overall, I admit, things turned out well, but this was far from a professional business transaction. No one needs...

My husband and I decided to stay at the House of Luddington on a trip through town because we were told by several locals that it was the nicest place in town.

We stopped there for one night on our way to Mackinac Island. Yes the people are nice, yes the view is nice but the rest is just terrible. The rooms are old and nasty. The sink is rusty, the wallpaper comes down. Everything is thrown together. It had it's time 40 years ago. The mattresses are worn out and furniture... More

The UP of Michigan is simply an amazing place--we have some family friends that live in Escanaba, and I came through here on a long road trip during the summer of 2011. The House of Ludington is everything you could want in a hotel--inexpensive, extraordinarily quaint, beautiful views out to Little Bay de Noc, and within walking distance of the... More
