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

A lovely, cozy motel conveniently located in Douglas, in a very serene setting surrounded by trees. The rooms are cabin inspired w comfy bed and retro mini fridge. We have stayed here more than once and will return. Continental breakfast includes fruit and muffins. Free ice.

A friend, a former Michigan resident, recommended this hotel. It was very unique, welcoming and pleasant for our 2 night stay in the Douglas/Saugatuck area. We wished we were lingering longer. Steve took a lot of time to show us the area on our map, and make recommendations when we checked in. Some of my favorite things included the retro... More

If you need a place to go and turn off your stress, the Pines Motor Lodge is an excellent choice. The owners, Rob and Steve, are very upfront about what they are selling: a place to sleep. Their primary goal is that you have a nice, clean, and comfortable place to lay your head after a hard day at the... More

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.
