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

We have been coming to the Saugatuck area for many years and have stayed at several nice places. The Pines is the only place for us now!!! The rooms are spacious and immaculately clean. They have been renovated and decorated with great attention to create an uncluttered, restful atmosphere. The beds are divinely comfortable. There is also a lovely outdoor... More

The Pines is exactly what you would expect. It brings back childhood travels with my grandparents with one important difference. SERVICE!! Steve (and Rob) at the other location love this area and they are the best advocates of local businesses. They will do anything to make your stay more enjoyable and always have great recommendations for restaurants in the area.... More

I am VERY particular about our accommodations when we travel. I always read the TripAdvisor reviews, but have never felt the need to write one...until now. This motel has caused me to reconsider the motel experience.It is far better appointed than any hotel chain. I don't want to be redundant and repeat the details that are already posted. I do...

The Pines reminds of the 1950's style motels that I used to see from the backseat of my parent's '62 Pontiac during our summer excursions before the Interstate was completed. It is picture postcard perfect. You can see that the property is well cared for the moment you pull in. From their carefully tended landscaping to the pairs of crisp... More

The rooms were great, common areas spacious. A couple issues were quickly cleared up with a phone call. Nice area, close to restaurants and limited number of shops. Very nice, comfortable. Need to fix the rug that is under the dining table so folks don't trip on it.

We were looking for a Michigan getaway we hadn't visited. After some research and a tip from friend, we decided on the Pines Motor Lodge. It was PERFECT! A quick drive to downtown Saugatuck, walking distance to the lovely art galleries of Douglas and easily accessible to other western Michigan towns. The decor is award winning with a fun twist...

I love staying here. The staff is very friendly. The pines in located just outside of sagatuck which is nice to stay out of the downtown hussle. Douglas is right across the street as well. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and perfectly suited for a couples needs. This is my first choice when staying in sagatuck. We even brought friends... More
