The room was a very pleasant surprise. Very clean and included snacks & bottled water. The staff is exceptional. The location is close to downtown Saugatuck, restaurants & things to do. The hot tub was a great end to a busy day.

This hotel is outstanding! From check-in to the room, nothing has been overlooked. This is what great customer service looks like and should be an example to other hotels. The room was equipped with every amenity you could think of, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel an it shouldn't be missed. A+++

We were located in an area that...

Magnificently updated but still charming. Great location in Douglas next door to Saugatuck. Very clean. Very friendly. Easy access to great shopping and dining in both Douglas and Saugatuck. In Douglas go to Everyday People for dinner. In Saugatuck try Phils or Marros. Beach access is very close as well.

Stayed for 2 nights, my friend had the room next door to mine. The rooms were small, but spotless and very quiet. We created our own happy hour on the back patio. Super friendly staff. The motel was in a great location - an easy walk to Douglas.

Blue Star rates five stars for friendliness. I have no complaints whatsoever about our hosts or their responses to our needs during our stay. As far as the accommodations: Well, there's only so much you can do when renovating a 50's motel. I'm speaking from the perspective of a 60-year-old whose husband has some health issues. The room was small...

Decided to book a last minute weekend getaway and I'm so happy we decided on the Blue Star Motel! It was only a three minute drive from Saugatauk and so close to Douglas Beach. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were the perfect size and opened to a great patio and back yard with a hot tub....
