My husband and I were looking for a romantic, low key, anniversary Get-A-Away and The Pines Motor Lodge was just the ticket! With the green space this lodge has to offer you really don't even notice that you are actually on a main thoroughfare. One evening while enjoying a glass of wine in the adirondack chairs outside our door, we... More

We visit the Douglas area three times per year and usually stay at the Blue Star Motel but they were booked this weekend. The Pines gave us 2 keys and we left one in the room Saturday morning because we did not need it. When we returned, the key was removed by housekeeping and they told the owners we checked... More

The day before their arrival, this guest called asking about the cancellation policy for her weekend reservation after which she and her partner decided to keep the reservation. Upon check-in on Friday night, they mentioned that they had a death in the family. As a courtesy, I offered to try and sell the Saturday night portion of their reservation for... More

We've been staying at the Pines Motor Lodge for nearly 30 years now and always have a great visit. The "new" owners, who have had the property for ten or so years now have done a wonderful job renovating the entire property and the retro gift shop is way too cool. The rooms go above and beyond what one would... More

Excellence all-around! Super-clean, great value, convenient location. Coziest, most comfortable and clean bed in town! Will stay here again and again and again! Did I say clean?! Can't beat this place.

We stayed here recently on a very short trip to Douglas / Saugatuck, MI to celebrate our son's birthday. The owner, Steve, was very friendly and helpful. When we checked in, Steve shared information about the area and we quickly followed his recommendations: Oval Beach at sunset, dinner at Everyday People Cafe, hiking at the Saugatuck Dunes State Park and...

The Lodge was an excellent value. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable with warm comforters. My sister and I enjoyed the retro decor which reminded us of 'days gone by'. Thanks for a great place to stay in Douglas and onl.y 5 minutes from Saugatuck!

Love staying here about once per year on a trip to Saugatuck / Douglas. Always find the rooms clean and inviting, and the owners are very friendly. It's in a great location - within walking distance to downtown Douglas or a short jog over to Saugatuck. The property is not marketed as a luxury motel, but it's very safe and... More

This is a "standard" motel, updgraded , but leaving a lot to be desired especially for the price. Next to a busy road, no counter space in the bathroom, musty smell, and a "breakfast" of coffee and stale bagels that should make the management embarrassed.

Great clean place to stay and enjoy Douglas & Saugatuck. Very convenient location. The rooms were clean and modern. Enjoyed the adirondack chairs in front of each room and even had dinner (wine, cheese, crackers) there one night!!! Felt relaxed and recharged after only 2 days. Would stay with them again.

Perfect location....we were able to walk to Saugatuck as well as to restaurants in Douglas. We always feel so welcome by Steve, Rob and Victor. There are some new upgrades which are flat screen TV's, delightful duvet covers, and white 2 inch wide slat blinds. Loved it! This is our third visit to the Pines Motorlodge and always enjoy our...
