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

After quite a bit of research before selecting a home-base for our getaway, my husband and I stayed with Paul at Captains Quarters Motel and were, and continue to be, extremely pleased with our choice. We were looking for a little "mom-and-pop" establishment reminiscent of those from our childhood family vacations—a cozy place, safe and clean and affordable, and perhaps... More

We had a great overnight stay in this nostalgic motel! It has lots of character in a really nice setting and it's close to everything you need and want to see! And for a bonus, the proprietor Paul, is good for hours of interesting conversation if you're up for it. He's also great with recommendations for where to eat! Thank... More

The Captain's Quarters is a first-class stay where we got the friendliest welcome from the owner, who takes great pride in this immaculate motel. The property is super clean with homey amenities. You can't sit around a campfire at a Holiday Inn -- here you can! The rooms are comfortable with excellent beds and pillows. Captain's Quarters is within walking... More

Whenever my partner and I are in Saugatuck, me make a point to stay at the Captain's Quarters. The rooms are not fancy, but very clean and well cared for. The motel itself is tucked off the main road and has a great grassy outdoor space, with seating for guests to just hang out and relax. We may have played... More

Clean room and great location. Owners are very nice. Relaxing outdoor settings. A bit pricey but it was peak season when we stayed. The location is right in the middle of activities. The only thing we missed having was a free breakfast. All in all a nice stay!
