The customer service here was over and above anything we had expected. Rusty made sure we had everything we needed and even walked us to our room. The property is meticulously maintained. Though this is a "retro" motel, our room was freshly updated throughout, including a new shower, a Sleep Number bed, and new furnishings. We stayed for New Year's... More

As we've aged, we've gotten out of the drive-up motel room habit, but booked here based on the positive reviews here and less-than positive in the area. No frills, but decent beds (bit firm for us). No complaints; we will return if in the area again.

I stayed here one night. When I arrived to check in, Rusty was efficient, friendly, and helpful. He even escorted us to our room. The whole motel has been completely rehabbed. Our room was great--both clean & well decorated. I cannot say enough about how comfortable the bed was! We also liked the fact we could plug in our chargers... More

Just returned from nice weekend get away with another couple and our four legged kids. Rooms were just as shown on website, clean, comfortable and nicely updated. Rusty happy to walk you to your room and give you lay of the land and give out local advise. Even with room closest to road didn't notice much road noise. Continental breakfast... More

Omg! What a great place to stay! They escort you to your room and explained everything to you. Nice personal touch. Clean, comfortable, nice location. Breakfast included eggs, bagels, cereal. Very nice spread and clean. Looks like a nice pool area too. We will be back this summer! We had a group of friends stay over Halloween. Great time thanks... More

Sister & I stayed 2 very comfortable and pleasant nights at the Starlite. We were greeted and walked to our room(really, who does that?) by Joshua. Very personable guy and in a few minutes had given us directions to Saugatuck - less than 5 minutes away - and encouraged us to take the local transport. The room was comfortable, clean... More

Loved our night in Saugatuck at the Starlite. I chose it based on reviews and the described retro vibe. Rooms are updated and clean and simple but meet all your needs. The breakfast was a huge surprise. Served in one of the empty rooms it has more than most continental breakfasts and my husband said the best machine coffee he... More

Not the ritz Carleton but close to everything and clean with nice comfy beds. Would definitely recommend and likely to return. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Throw back to the 50's with the decor. Can tell it was recently renovated which is nice.

Good location, clean, friendly. We arrived late Friday and they made us feel welcome after the drive from Chicago. The rooms are sparse but comfortable and roomie. Four ladies and eight pair of boots were comfortable over the two nights. Very relaxing.
