We had a great stay at The Pines Motor Lodge. It was clean, cozy, and so cute! Love the attention to detail and the retro look. It was conveniently located...about 2 minutes from downtown Douglas and about 5 to 7 minutes from downtown Saugatuck. We also went to Douglas Beach, which was about a mile away. Enjoyed sitting outside in... More

My girlfriends and I stayed at the Pines for a girls weekend. Steve was amazing. He gave us a map of places that were great to eat, fun places to see and even what was a good time for sunset on the beach. We walked into downtown Saugatuck on Saturday and discovered Fenn Valley Winery where we purchased approximately 30... More

My sister and a friend stayed here this past weekend and my husband and I stay here when we come to S.Haven/Saugatuck area. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable and the owners are AWESOME (friendly, accommodating and fun)! It's a 5-10 min walk to downtown Douglas and about a 15-20 min walk to downtown Saugatuck. Close to Douglas Beach. All round... More

Stayed for the night, and it was a great little motel in Douglas. The property is nicely kept, and both Robert and Steven were friendly and accommodating. The room was super clean and comfortable. The retro fridge and microwave were a perfect fit for the motels throwback feel. The Adirondack chairs outside our room were awesome and comfortable where was... More

Spent an evening and enjoyed the kitch factor. It's an easy spot as a motor-lodge with access to the great area of art and water sports. The summer can be a tough time to wing it with out a room reservation, we scored and felt lucky.

We've been traveling to Saugatuck for several years and find the Pines our favorite hotel/motel in the area. The Pines is in a great location off the Blue Star, yet is set back with a nice yard and deck as well as lounge chairs outside each room. It's wooded, quiet and quaint. The motel offers the best of both worlds... More

Whenever we go back to the Saugatuck/Douglas area we will be staying at The Pines Motor Lodge. This motel is very clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and the whole place is nicely decorated. It is very convenient to all of the area attractions.

We stayed at the Pines in Oct for a wedding. It was VERY clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. We were able to walk to the wedding and then downtown Douglas to the shops until the reception. Very short drive to Saugatuck and Oval beach. The staff was helpful and friendly. Good restaurants and antique mall close by also. Really enjoyed... More

We decided at that last minute to take a short trip from Chicago. We chose this area because it's beautiful and being the off season not crowded. The guys that own this place are great front men. They did an awesome job on making the rooms feel cozy. Very rustic and quaint. Perfect location in regards to the area If... More
