I visited the Ship'N'Shore with my fiance recently, and I have to say we were greatly surprised. The customer service is 10 stars! Everything we needed, they were helpful and incredibly friendly. Visiting from Florida, it was so nice to be in a place that valued their customers. The rooms are adorable, and overlooking a gorgeous view of the river.... More

I WOULD NEVER GO BACK TO SHIP-N-SHORE. I stayed there with friends August 5, 6, 7. Upon arrival I was told I had a reservation for only two nights but that a room actually was available for the third night but I would have to move to the new room after the second night and it would cost extra. I... More

I love the Ship 'n Shore if you can ever get a room. It is one of the few hotels that has a pool and is withing walking distance of everything. Other reviewers are correct that it is an older place and could use some updating. Rooms are small and there is not one fancy thing about the place but... More

We stayed one night on the way back to Chicago. The room was great with a view over the pool to the river. It was really clean but as people have said, could do with a bit of a re-fit. The carpet was very old and the lighting was a bit lacking near the wardrobe. That said for the money... More

This is not a fancy hotel, but the location is great and the room is a good value. The pool and hot tub are very nice and the hosts are very accommodating. I will stay here again on our next trip to Saugatuck.

This is an older hotel, But clean. Nothing Fancy, but it is right on the water so you get to watch the boats go by on their way out to Lake Michigan. Everything is in walking distance. Great shops, and wonderful restaurants. This hotel has a nice garden and pool, and very friendly staff. We have stayed there twice and... More
