We were in town for a reunion, where one of my friends and family had rented a house. We needed 2 rooms for 4 people. By the time I made the reservations all the pricier hotels and B&B's had been booked up. I reviewed the Captains Quarters here on Tripadvisor and it sounded promising. We were not disappointed. It was... More

The person who checked us in didn't seem interested in discussing local restaurants or attractions. I'm sure she gets tired of answering questions, but it's always nice to have a local residents input. There was a very bright light shining right outside our window (Room #1) I would avoid that room because the curtains didn't do much at all to... More

CQ is a nice clean motel that is dog friendly! And very close to downtown Saugatuck. We have stayed here twice & will stay again I'm sure. The grounds are beautiful. A perfect place for a reunion with the way the rooms are laid out.

My daughter and I found this place late at night as they had just had a cancellation. Room was great, owner was pleasant and fun. We had a campfire the second night with 12 other guests and had a fantastic time. Owner was very helpful on guiding us to great beaches, restaurants, stores, etc. Will definitely come back again.

Really enjoyed my visit here while passing through on my motorcycle. Friendly reception, clean spacious rooms, trees and birds surrounding the place. Well kept up and cozy. Owner knows a lot about motorcycles and easy to talk to. I would definitely return.

This is a gem just outside Saugatuck, MI, with a nautical theme. Just far enough off the road so traffic noise does not interfere with sleep. Rooms are small (max 2 people) but immaculate and modern (refrigerator, flat screen TV & free WI). Our bathroom amazed us for being ultra clean and newly updated. No breakfast is included, but coffeemaker... More

I rarely take the time to write reviews for hotels/motels, but I felt the need to warn people about this one. Taking 10 minutes to write this may save someone a weekend of horror, so it's well worth it! My friend and I took a trip here over the summer (August 2014). We booked online at a price of $109...

We stayed at this motel for one night. It was one of the cleanest and most comfortable rooms I have ever stayed in. The location is perfect for visiting Saugatuck and Douglas. As others have mentioned the owner Paul is extremely hospitable and loves giving recommendations for local restaurants in the area. I would love to stay at this motel... More
