Found this motel on trip advisor. What everyone says is spot on.. Refurbished inside and out. Rooms are large and exceptionally clean. Rusty and Sydney were very helpful checking us in. Rusty suggested dinner for us and made reservations. Would recommend Starlite. The motel is about 2 miles from down town. Nice and quiet with beautiful, well manicured grounds.

We usually stay at a friends cabin but we couldn't make the dates work. This was a great, affordable and clean option for my kids and I to stay. Beds were cozy, pool was nice especially at night. Loved the free WiFi and breakfast. Fridge was really helpful to have as well!

The Starlite Resort reminds me of the roadside motels we would stop in as kids. This is not a knock as the Starlite is purposely decorated in 50's decor. The Starlite still has all the modern conveniences. Nice bathroom, flat screen tv, Sleep Number bed. Very comfortable and a great relaxing atmosphere.

The dunes has nothing on this place, Gay owned and run and Rusty and Billy are amazing. My partner and I had heard so many good things about this place and we were not disappointed. The pool was clean but was a little over treated and burned our eyes. The room was so clean and the 50's retro style was... More

What a gem of a find! We loved everything about this motel which has been completely renovated and refaced with a perfect retro feel. Rusty, Billy and the entire staff are terrific and all very friendly. We felt welcomed Immediately. They are very proud of this little bit of heaven they have worked so hard to create. Rightly so!

The Starlite is newly refurbished as of early 2015. It's in a good location off the Blue Star Highway and is a quick drive to downtown Saugatuck. The proprietors will walk you to your room and describe the amenities to you upon check in. I was very surprised how quiet the room to room noise seemed, you barely knew anyone... More

This place is a gem! The owners couldn't have been nicer and more accomodating. The property was lovely and full of nice touches like hammocks and a great area for grilling. The free continental breakfast was a nice touch. The rooms and entire property were spotlessly clean and comfortable. It's a super quick drive into town, or an easy 10... More

Perhaps because this is in a tourist area and there are not a lot of options, they can charge this price. It's a basic clean room within five minutes of town. We were not as enchanted as the other reviewers. Staff was friendly and seemed to go out of their way.
