We stayed here for one night while we spent time in Saugatuck. Great value. Only complaint is room had sort of a funny "Damp" smell to it. But the price was right, great location, and the bed was SUPER comfortable! (we had a sleep number bed in our room) I would consider staying here again.

We made these reservations for ourselves and friends, based on the pictures and description online. This is an old motel, you park in front of the room and everything, including the metal lawn chairs out front, were painted orange. The gentleman who was there showed us a room and very graciously refunded out deposit. Since it was the week of...

This is a nice cute quaint place to stay when in the area. It's a bit set off from the downtown, and the lake front. But the town is a quick drive away. The hotel is recently remodeled and everything was clean. The only issue we had was the walls were paper thin, and there were only maybe 6-7 rooms...

I have never had such personalized service. The gentleman that checked my husband and I in also gave us a tour of the place and showed us to our room. He also told us about the different games available to play while staying there and gave directions to the nearest store. The decor is great! Very retro.

I have struggled mightily with this review, to the point where it has taken months to complete. I wanted to love everything about the Starlight. "Mr. Rusty" was fabulous, the rooms are huge, the pool area and outdoor spaces are absolute delights, and when I asked if I could keep the dog I had just purchased in our room, they...

It is not right downtown in Saugatuck, but that is probably a positive especially in the summer months. Billie and Tony have updated this 1950's classic style motor hotel in great colors and will a sense of modern style and comfort. The bed was very comfortable, as were the pillows. The large tiled shower was a luxurious space. The pool...

We capped off our week's trip with a two night stay at the Starlite Resort in Saugatuck. While we have been to Saugatuck several times, our prior lodgings had been at a private party rental arranged by a family member. My wife informed me that the Trip Advisor top-rated hotel in Saugatuck was the Starlite, a newly renovated 1950's style...

The Ship 'N Shore, was an excellent hotel. A very large entrance roon, with a TV, used for breakfast, parties, or just sitting. The view is of the water. The hotel is in the shopping and dining area, of all Saugatuck.

We stayed one night at the Starlite and enjoyed our stay! Very friendly - Billy even took my husband on a "tour" when checking in to show the breakfast room, ice/vending area, etc. Loved that parking is right outside your door (it was pouring rain when we arrived). Updated so the room is comfortable, while retaining a retro feel. Very...
