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.

My husband and I enjoyed the spotlessly clean room, fresh decor, and free breakfast. Great location- close to shops of Saugatuck and Douglas. Staff could not have been nicer or more welcoming. We would go back in a heartbeat!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights and didn't want to leave! Great management Billy was very nice and welcoming. The room was super cute comfortable and spotless. We will definitely be back! I've stayed at other hotels in the area but this was the most enjoyable by far.

My boyfriend and I felt so at home here. Billy at the front desk is top notch. So very welcoming and friendly! We were amazed that he did a personal walk through of the room and amenities, as if we were signing a lease and moving in. I've been in 5 star hotels that offer shotty service, so this was... More

Wonderful little motel in Douglas. Close to everything, spotless, comfortable, quiet, great staff. We stayed with our older teens. Loved that we could walk to FREE breakfast and ice cream, convenience store. Nice back patio area. Reasonably priced. Everything you could want.

Just got back from spending 2 nights at the Blue Star Motel with a good friend. We booked room 1 which is a suite with a king bed and pull out couch. We were very happy with our choice. Room was very clean, quiet and within walking distance to downtown. Highly recommend!
