I just spent two nights at the Blue Star motel and I wish it could have been longer. My room was spotless, the bed was so comfortable and cosy and the linens had that freshly laundered smell that is often lacking in some motels! Vicky is charming and friendly. The café next door has a great retro feel! I hope... More

We pulled into Douglas pretty exhausted and pulled in here because, honestly, it was right there. Found out it was gay owned and then discovered it was really charming. Looks newly re-furbished and loved the back with the hot tub. We would have stayed another night but they were booked (we ended up at another motel owned by the same... More

Our favorite getaway every 4 months. We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, and of course the Halloween adult parade. The staff is extremely friendly and caring about every detail. We love going over to the restaurant for the hot free breakfast. Then relaxing in the court yard right out the back door of your room. Keep room 7 open for us.... More

Why don't people just apologize anymore? My partner and I have been going to the Douglas/Saugatuck area for years and had always thought the Blue Star looked like a nice place so we decided to try it. We were initially very impressed. The room was very nice retro modern. The use of space is inventive and out of the ordinary.... More

Kevin, Thanks for you feedback. I'm Bob the owner and I want to personally apologize for the dirty carpeting. I was not the one you spoke to so not sure if it was our GM or another employee. That being said, There is no excuse for the carpeting not being clean. Vicki relayed your comments to our GM and he... More

We stayed for three nights as a get away. The room was so cute and modern for a little motel. We were surprised at how clean and well kept it was. Water and snacks are provided at no charge. I can't say enough about the place. You just really have to experience it for yourself. The staff is amazingly friendly... More

I needed a place to stay for a last minute interview and was fortunate enough to snag a room here. The staff was incredibly accommodating and personable!!! The owners have done a great job conceptually with the overall design of the motel. It is quaint and modern. I was happy that I was able to hit up Oval Beach along... More

We've been to the Douglas/Saugatuk area many times. This time we decided a 3 day trip to the area was what we needed. We saw the usual motel/Inn suspects but decided to try the Blue Star. A combination of reasons: price and location. We had reservations and arrived in the late afternoon. Rooms are small but very modern. Good sized... More

My fiancée and I were looking for an affordable stop in the Saugatuk area to enjoy Oval Beach and the downtown. No surprise that most places were already booked in the weeks leading up to the trip. Luckily we discovered this adorable little motel within 2 miles of everything we wanted to do. Service was outstanding, the rooms were very... More

This place is fantastic. The rooms are clean, and they styled the rooms to perfection. The staff is so helpful. All of the amenities are a plus. The beds are so comfortable and I love the use of space to fit any possible situation as a consumer.
