This is the fifth year we have come here for a multi-family vacation. Great place with a friendly staff. Rooms are always clean and well maintained. I recommend it to all my friends visiting Ludington. If you are a fisherman plenty of parking for your boat.

Thank you to Nader's for a great stay. Had the pleasure of staying upstairs in the main house. Obviously freshly remodeled, comfortable bed with nice linens and new bathroom. Hard wood floors were a clean touch. Lake Michigan Ludington Beach was beautiful but Nader's 82 degree pool was our preferred swimming spot. We grabbed a cup of coffee in the...

This was our third year staying at Naders. We really do love their location and the staff is very friendly. One thing we did learn this year is that apparently the dishes/silverware is not something that is expected to be in every room. The last two years our room (with full kitchen) was stocked with plenty of silverware and plates....

This is a clean quiet family resort. Location is bonus, as just 2 blocks from fabulous beach & shopping areas. Not plush, but clean, comfortable, and dog-friendly! Room had small refrig & microwave too. Plan to return for its homey convenience.

While this is very family oriented -- even as a couple it was a nice place. Very clean and well kept. We arrived on our motorcycle (not their target audience) but there families playing games on the lawn and picnicking -- not what we expected. The room was on the small size but was open to the lawn via a...

This is a family-owned hotel in a nice location across from the public beach. If you are looking for location, it is a nice place to stay. If you are looking for luxury, you won't find it here. We had a group of people who stayed there for a wedding. The U-shaped layout of the buildings made it easy for...

Been there 3 times currently, it's my go-to choice for places to stay in the area. Walking distance to the down town area, near the lake, pool access & love that's dog friendly (I haven't traveled with mine yet but I still get a doggie fix when I'm there). The people working at Nader's are above & beyond friendly and...

I chose to stay at Nader's for the Gus Macker weekend and had an absolute wonderful time. The facilities are great and the staff was very nice. The room was bigger than anticipated. I did not get a chance to utilize the BBQ grills they have available, but many families did and they looked to be working just fine!

We booked this motel because of the very short walk to the city beach where my sons basketball tournament was being held. That was the only great thing about the place. We payed $200 a night and were put in the house part of the place above the office. It was literally one tiny room of and old house and...

Thank you for your review. The rate per night was $180 which is an amazing rate for the location, amenities, and Gus Macker weekend. On May 9th when you made the reservation you were told and emailed specifications regarding the room you had reserved....1 King bed, mini fridge/freezer, microwave and coffee maker on the second floor of the main lodge....

My husband, myself and our 2 dogs had a great animal friendly room, which are often very hard to find in Ludington. I grew up in Ludington and have seen and heard of Nader's all my life( + 60 years). After selling my parents home and now having to find a place to stay Nader's was my first choice. Its...
