The staff at Blue Star is amazing! At check-in they walked us to our rooms and explained all the amenities provided and re-arranged the rooms so the 3 rooms we booked were all together! AWESOME SERVICE!

The nicest people work here!! Clean and cute rooms. Plus the free breakfast at the restaurant next door at M&M's is a quaint retro throw back with good food piled high on the plate. We had the pleasure of sitting at the counter with our server, who would pass as the dotting grandmother in storybooks, never skipped a beat as... More

Nothing special, over priced, zero customer service (in fact we checked ourselves in and never met a single employee of the motel). WE ARE NOT PICKY PEOPLE! I'm not sure how other reviewers got away with only spending $100 a night. Our stay in the Patio Room was over $400 for 2 nights. My wife and I have driven past... More

Hi Matthew— Thank you for your feedback and I apologize that your stay did not live up to expectations. We take our guest experiences to heart and have looked into this matter. This past weekend we were down several housekeepers due to illness and to cover all our rooms at both the Blue Star and Starlite, we had to shuffle... More

we have visited this area for the past 3 years and have stayed at Blue Star the last 2 times, and cant wait to visit them again next year. This motel is so nice and clean, the people who run it/work there are awesome. Highly recommend this motel.

From the friendly service to the quaint and beautiful rooms, this place was the most pleasant experience. I love the simple retro but modern decor. The patio in the back was so fantastic. We rented the suite and it was perfect. I loved to be able to bring our pet to this hotel, they were very accommodating! Having the option... More

Loved this ole style motel that has been renovated in very modern amenities. Location was just a couple of miles out of Douglas and Naugatuck. Great restaurants near by. Breakfast was included in the little diner that is just two buildings down. We loved it. Billy was an amazing staff person.

My husband and I recently stayed here for one night while on a Michigan road trip. The motel is great and so was Billy, who showed us to our room and told us more about the area. The room was immaculately clean! The bed was very comfortable. Room was quiet we slept very well. The bathroom was very clean as... More

I won't bore you with redundancy. Suffice it to say that all the great things said about Rusty and The Blue Star are true. The only problem now is having to choose between The Blue Star and the new Starlite Resort, which looks just as fantastic! Keep up the good work!

I stayed at this chic motel with some friends for a long get away. It was wonderfully decorated and the staff exceptionally friendly and accommodating. I am ready to plan my next trip! Oh and the included breakfast next door is amazing! You must try the cinnamon swirl french toast!

Hat off to Billy and Rusty and there entire staff customer service. The only place I stay in Saugatuck/Douglas is the Blue Star Motel. Other hotel and motel in the area should take lessons from them for customers service. Beautiful//clean great rates. They have blown the other places I have stayed at here out of the water. Great job thank... More
