Typical older hotel room. Very dated & was not very clean room. Spider webs seen. We moved the bed to look for an outlet to find the outlet was partially out of the wall! We had a waterfront room that had a small table and chairs outside the door. Good location to be able to walk into town. Friendly staff.... More

Ship n Shore Hotel is a classic. It is walking distance to great shops, music, bars and activities. We have stayed several times within the past 8 years. We like to get a room by the dock. It is so peaceful especially at night with the sounds of water. The pool and hot tub is great. There is a comfortable... More

I am a music lover, but it doesn't necessarily mean I like YOUR music. The piped in music was loud and I guess went through the decades. But lucky me, I was outside every time the 50's were on. I get it, the guests skewed an older boater crowd. A LOT older. But can't we just pick our own music... More

Ship and Shore has become our favorite place to stay in Saugatick. We come every year in August for our anniversary. We recently celebrated our 54th anniversary and with any luck we will be celebrating our 55th next year. We've already booked our stay for next year. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Ship and Shore sits right on... More

We have stayed any Ship n Shore for the last three fall seasons. We always look forward to the comfortable rooms, welcoming staff, pleasant covered patio gathering area, pool and hot tub. This older hotel doesn't pretend to be an elegant, modern chain hotel. Their rooms are unique, clean and comfortable. There is only one, fairly big, problem...located on the... More

Just a fantastic place to stay. Right in the heart of town, within walking distance to everything there is to do. Front desk help was extremely attentive and courteous. Was given recommendations for dinner spots every night and was extremely happy each time. Room was very clean, soft towels, great water pressure in the shower and a very comfortable bed.... More

My family and I are on our way home from a week long vacation at the Ship-N-Shore Hotel. As I read some of these reviews, I quickly got confused. Were these people staying at the same hotel as we were? I guess some people want to be able to get free things if they have one little complaint, but those... More

Location of this place is great, within walking distance to everything, right on the water which is a beautiful setting and neat for watching boats traverse the river. The open-air setting of the lounge area is great too for eating breakfast or conversation, cards, etc. The rooms aren't plush at all, but adequate and charming. The water pressure in the... More
