Rooms were basic, but updated well. Nothing fancy. What I loved was the outside sitting area with Adirondack chairs on poured patio, which faced a raised deck with outside furniture and a hot tub. Very relaxing! No pool which might be a problem for couples with kids. Owner very nice. Breakfast vouchers at nearby cafe an added value. Very small town and cute. Folks friendly !

The staff was so friendly! Great value and you can walk to downtown Douglas, close drive to Oval Beach and a quick bike ride to Saugatuck! Perfect central location! I would stay here again in a minute!!

We stayed here for the Tulip Festival (in Holland, MI) and it was delightful. The front desk was more than friendly the room was plush with bedding from West Elm and there was a fire pit and Adirondack chairs out the back door of your room for chilling and enjoying the outdoors. The motel was literally 1/2 mile from Saugatuk Brewery, which was handy for a nice dinner and a few local brews. I will stay at this place every time I am on the west side of the state - it was comfortable, clean, new and friendly. Plus you get a great breakfast in the morning at the local diner. Can't say enough about the motel - it really was nice.

I read all the positive reviews and they were right! Just a 5 minute drive from hotel to Water St. in Saugatuck where there is dining and shopping. Loved the paddle boat ride! Don't skip downtown Douglas either! Good meals at Phil's, Wild Dog Grill, The Butler Inn, and Christo's. Enjoyed breakfast across from hotel at Vicky's. Husband golfed at Ravines. Clean room, though small, but it had everything, including complimentary snacks (and a magnifying mirror and make-up removal pads). Loved the deck out back with comfortable furniture and the hot tub. And the festive lights! Loved the shower. Rusty and team super friendly and efficient.

We were looking for a place away from the hustle of Tulip Days in Holland and booked a night here. Only anoint ten rooms in a seriously updated 1950's era motel. Super clean, unique furniture a great back porch and patio. Breakfast at a restaurant on premises. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Owner operators made sure we were comfortable.

This is a great little inn and perfect place to stay for quick escape from Chicago. The hot tub is awesome in the winter. The rooms are clean and modern, Rusty, the innkeeper is really helpful and accommodating, and the location is great. You can walk over to the Dunes or into the town of Douglas if the weather is nice.

Room Tip: The rooms are perfect for a couple. If you want a nice sitting area and a little more room, book the...
