Love the pull up to your room...nice room, bed was broken. My side deflated every time I got in it. Nice pool and great spots to cook outside if your on a budget. Picnic tables. Typical breakfast to get by on. Quiet, but we were there during the week.

There's a fine line between retro yuck and retro hip. Starlite is Retro hip. First, it's a family operation and it was wonderful to see a group of people working together to make sure guests were happy, rooms were clean. So helpful and accommodating everywhere I turned. Great to see guests using the volleyball net, corn hole game, sitting under...

This adorable resort was recently renovated. The pictures are accurate portrayal of what the rooms look like. The rooms are simple but have all the necessities. The pool area is surrounded by pine trees which helps create a private little sanctuary. The place is fun for families, couples and even just friends. There is a shuttle (not owned by Starlite,...

The Starlite was the PERFECT destination for a girls weekend. Every person I talked with was incredibly friendly - the staff and the other guests. The location is great, either a quick bike ride to town or take the $1 shuttle (not operated by the resort but reliable and loved by tourists and locals alike). The grounds and pool area...

As a family we took the two room suite which worked really well. The room was modern, clean & comfortable for a 6 night stay. We used the pool, there were balls etc available for the kids to use, a great swing, hammocks & more. A great base from which to investigate the area.

We just departed the Starlite (with our nineteen-year old cat) after a four-night stay in Saugatuck and cannot wait to return! The rooms are so clean and welcoming; the pool is spacious and contains plenty of seating either shady or sunny; the continental breakfast is plentiful and very adequate; the staff could not be friendlier; the wooded setting is quiet...

They welcomed my dog in a room that usually doesn't allow dogs for half of the few after driving 3 hours and not making it to camp Wild Dog in time . So thankful , friendly & super clean ! Nice breakfast lay out and place to BBQ & play games. Love it here!

Take a step back in time and stay at this beautiful motel. It is only a five minute drive to downtown saugatuck or ten to gorgeous oval beach. It's very budget friendly. It has been lovingly restored to its 1950s origins and is darling! Best of all it is sparkling clean. Comfy sleep number beds. It has a real family...
