I have stayed at the Blue Spruce Motel a few times and it has been a great experience! The rooms are very clean and they have a nice outdoor pool and a lounge area. The owners are very kind and helped out with things to do and places to eat in town. We will definitely be going back this summer!!

We stayed in the hotel portion, the room was clean, large bathroom, was a nice room. We had access to the pool and was within walking distance of Port Austen, which we loved. We would probably stay again.

We stayed on the cabin side of property in a hotel room (7) and it was of size, very outdated and the bathroom had a water stain on the ceiling that made me worry about mold. But, seems to be kept up and cleaned well. But, for the money I would definitely stay elsewhere in the area. The location was... More

We rented a 2 bedroom cabin for 3 nights and had a great stay. Very clean, everything you need provided or the owners will tell you where to find it! Close to the beautiful marina, beaches, shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed the open area with picnic tables and swings. We also used the fire pit one night for a great... More

From the outside, The Blue Spruce might not look like the most inviting place. Inside, the rooms are modern and well kept. This is an "old school" place with real door keys, TVs that are not flat-screen etc. But everything works and they have pretty decent Wi-Fi for such a remote location. There are other good reviews of The Blue... More

Stayed in the "older" (recently renovated) section of the motel for 2 nights. Very accommodating, reminding one of the old-time motels. The bathroom was small but cute and again, recently remodeled. The room was quaint with comfortable double beds, TV, fridge - the basics. The grounds are well kept and everything was neat and tidy. It is a nice walk... More

When traveling to Port Austin, there are not many hotels/motels to choose from, but the Blue Spruce is not too bad. We stayed in the "new" portion of the blue spruce, so I can only comment on that area, because my search for reviews online have found some "not-so-great" reviews on the older portion. We stayed in room 15 (2nd... More

We just wet on a road trip for the day and ended up stopping at the blue spruce!!! The owner was awesome and very accommodating. We stayed in cabin 9 in the horseshoe part. It was very very nice. We had a lighthouse theme and the room was very clean. The beds were very comfy too. The only complaint we... More

Port Austin, MI is at the very tip of the Thumb. The beaches, boats, restaurants and shops just scream vacation paradise. It's an easy drive from our home in Toledo, OH. with the added bonus of being cooler during the torrid heat of July. The Blue Spruce was chosen based on other reviews I found online. It proved to be... More
