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!

The Captians Quarters offers an affordable relaxing option to enjoy Saugatuck and Douglas. It is quick walk into downtown Saugatuck for fabulous shopping, music, and excellent food. The innkeeper, Paul is a wonderful host and has updated the Quarters very nicely.

We didn't make reservations ahead of time and we're lucky there was a room available. The price was comparable with other motels. The owner was super! The room was very clean and updated - a little on the small side but we weren't planning to spend much time in the room. The bed was very comfortable, the pillows were very... More

Room was in excellent shape, owner very friendly and helpful, 15 minute walk to downtown. Only downside is wireless did not extend to our room and apparently many others. Would have rated 4 stars if wireless worked.
