“Anniversary stay”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

We enjoyed the stay even though the weather really didn't cooperate with us. Pros and cons to this hotel. It is on Beach side so when you want to to something in town you must cross the river via ferry. Really not a big deal as long as your not staying late. They do have a bus shuttle you can call and get a ride for a dollar also that ran till 11pm. Positive is you can walk to the beach if you don't mind the hike.
We stayed in the suite on the water and it was nice. Like I said the weather was terrible so it kinda dampened the mood somewhat. You can walk out on the deck from your room and sit right on the water. The ship n shore is right on the other side and that is the party place for the weekend so be prepared for noise late night if your staying on the water and its the weekend. The room was nice and we would stay again. Only complaint I have is the bed is very hard. I ended up sleeping on the sofa the last night because my back hurt so bad. Also I think they could do better for morning breakfast stuff besides powdered donuts out of the bag poured into a bowl. It would be so easy to set up a few nice things for breakfast.

Spent a night at the Beachway. Once we climbed the steep driveway to our room, we found a delightful suite waiting for us. Large deck and pool at the top of the hill. Spotlessly clean, modern amenities.

We spent a week at Beachway for a family reunion and had a great time. Our room was a 1 bedroom on the river with great views. I felt it was priceless to sit on the deck each morning and evening watching the boats go by. The location is excellent and the chain ferry is a bonus when you want to cross over to town and not have to drive looking for a place to park! The staff were great too!

We ended up staying at the Beachway a night earlier than we had planned, thanks to stinky service in Holland, Mi at another hotel. We booked room 9 around 9:15 pm. This room is just beautiful! It's so large and the views are spectacular! Nancy, the inns keeper for the evening was incredibly friendly and welcomed us very nicely! The bed is so comfy and it's very quiet here at night. I'm a bit sad to check out of this room today, but cannot wait to see our suite!! I don't feel like you would be disappointed with any room they have to offer! This is our first vacation and first time in Saugatuck, and we never want to leave! I can't believe it's not in the top 3 of hotels in the area.

My friend and I were very impressed with Beachway. Upon entering you are pleasantly surprised with the homey feeling of the place; and Kathy and the staff make you feel comfortable right away. Beachway feels like a B & B or Inn. It was very clean and we found the rates most reasonable. We greatly enjoyed our stay and it was very close to wonderful Oval Beach.

Room Tip: One of the twin rooms was very small, but we stayed in another one that was roomy. The queen room w...

Just spent one night for Holland tulip festival and were very pleased with the room. Have been to Saugatuck several times but not on this side of the river where we discovered the beautiful Oval Beach nearby. Staff was very pleasant and we will return!

Room Tip: Economy room is extremely small. Thermostat for rooms controlled by front office.
