Freshly remodeled to bring back that 1950's motel look. However, with a Sleep Comfort Bed. Paint, Furnishings etc are done well. Cable TV. Highly recommend. One drawback is the water is well water. Rates are very reasonable too.

Absolutely love the retro look! Large rooms with a small fridge & microwave. We had the queen sleep number bed and a couch in our room. However, not all rooms have the sleep number beds - the rooms with 2 double have regular mattresses. Check in and out was super easy. The hotel is just 5 minutes from town and... More

Cool retro update to 50's era motel with clever design features. Friendly service and clean, quiet rooms. Although probably great for some I did not find the sleep number bed that comfortable; perhaps I should've played with the settings some more. Wonderful grounds with heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi. All within close proximity to charming Saugatck. Look forward to another... More

The Starlite Resort is awesome! The staff is super friendly and sweet. We had a jacuzzi suite for the honeymoon. It was beautiful! Clean environment and spacious rooms & bathroom. The continental breakfast is delicious and clean. I absolutely love the coffee!! Thank you for an awesome experience!

We booked a few rooms for my daughter's wedding on August 14, 2015. From the very beginning when we went up to look at hotels, the Starlite general manager, Rusty was friendly and so willing to work with us on not only fees but number of rooms for wedding party as well as guests. Every other hotel/motel we looked at... More

Great hotel in a convenient location and reasonably priced. The staff was all incredibly friendly, from the general manager to the housekeepers. Really nice rooms and amenities. Both family friendly and LGBT friendly. We had an excellent time and really enjoyed the place.

Totally retro hotel. Relaxing pool area with cabanas, picnic tables in a nice wooded area as well as a hammock. Continental breakfast was the usual fare in a nice room by the office. Sleep number beds were awesome. Best night's sleep I have ever had in a hotel. Kind, attentive staff.

So what's not to like about this lovely laid back motel? The fresh retro 50s look and feel and the striking aqua and orange color scheme, the friendliness of the staff and the proximity to Saugatuck and Douglas. We'd come back in a heartbeat. Rooms were well appointed with spacious bathroom and great shower. Breakfast was a nice perk.

We wanted the kids to experience a "roadside motel", and although this is called a resort, it fit the bill. Very clean, modern, great beds. Bathroom is a bit crowded and gets steamy, but the window opens. Owners are very kind, show you to your room. Our kids loved the hammocks and area to play frisbee. Free breakfast is very... More

Loved the pool and really nice lounge area surrounding the pool. We spent every evening after dinner in the hot tub or having drinks in... More
