This is our fourth visit over the summers to The Pines, and every year, something new and charming has been added. The mattresses are so comfortable, the quilts are cozy, the flowers in the horse trough planters are welcoming and cheery, the Pink Flamingo theme makes us smile, morning coffee and pastry on the front porch starts our day perfectly,...

This is a great place for a weekend getaway. It's a charming retro style motor lodge that takes you back to a simpler time. Steve is a friendly host who has plenty of information on where to go in the area. When we return to Saugatuck/Douglas, we will definitely be staying at The Pines!

My friend and I have returned to the Pines year after year because it is a great value, clean and a ideal location. It is a charming small motel whose host always welcomes us like family. We love this place.

My wife and I just got back from a weekend stay at the Pines. We will stay there again, no doubt about it. The staff (Steve) was very friendly was very accommodating of our late arrival. The room was clean, comfortable and charming. One thing that stood out to me was the maintenance of the entire property. Outside of the... More

My friends and I just returned from our vacation in Douglas/Saugatuck and stayed at The Pines. What a fun place! We each had a double full bed unit that was very roomy, immaculately clean and also included a microwave and fridge. The bed was comfortable and the decor of the room was 1950’s retro. Steve was always there to answer... More

This is a charming motel, extremely clean, and we loved using the outdoor deck under the pine trees. Steve was so helpful...provided recommendations for dining and activities and was very responsive to any requests. We enjoyed meeting a few of the other guests and since there are not many rooms, the setting was quiet (except when the Church was having... More

Rather than be redundant, let me just say that I echo every positive comment I have read. Everything exactly as described and promised. Staying here is a unique experience, which is to say that if you crave the predictable average-ness of a Hampton or a Red Roof, by all means stay there instead. But if you are looking for an... More

This wonderful place can be graded on the 3 C's just like the diamond it is; Charm, Cleanliness and Comfort. The immaculately maintained property welcomed me like an old friend and put me at ease. Growing up and staying at places like this as a child, made me appreciate the modern take on the typical decor and amenities one would... More

Rooms are on the smaller side but it was clean and comfy. The bed was pretty comfortable and it was great to have a fridge and microwave in the room, too. The towels were a little scratchy so bring your own if you're particular about this. Overall, the room looked and felt nice, there were some minor improvements that could... More

We stayed here in July 2014. It was great. A fun, renovated Motorlodge. The feeling of a 1960's motel. Very clean and well appointed. Awesome location. I will return again, for sure. Give it a try, You will not be disappointed.
