We stayed in the suites that were priced at $300 a night for the holiday. Let me start off with the only positive of the property which is an awesome view. The negatives includes an EXTREMELY unwelcoming and unfriendly hotel staff, a room that has seen better days (the furniture was uncomfortable and old), the bathroom is TINY, the tv... More

We stayed again this year. We visited with our grandsons (11 and 13). The location is great for us. The proximity to lake Michigan and Mt. Baldy is within walking distance.....a pretty good hike but, closer than in town. Our grandsons enjoyed the pool and loved using the Chain Ferry. We just turned them loose on their scooters. No problem.... More

The Watermelon cottage is a nightmare. Cobwebs everywhere and we killed spiders every day. I don't think they've cleaned under the dressers for years. The furniture is old and dirty. It was still musty after four days with the humidifier and air conditioner running. No wi fi. AND THERE IS NO DOOR BETWEEN THE TWO BEDROOMS, which are so tiny... More

I am so sorry to hear your recent stay with us was less than pleasant. We will certainly look into the cleaning of this unit and will get the housekeepers over there immediately to inspect and further clean the unit as necessary. Had we been informed that there was a problem prior to your departure we would have certainly sent... More

Great week with family of 40!! We had several rooms and cottages around the upper pool. The staff was friendly and helpful. The ferry is less than a block away making easy to get into town. On Wednesday nights a free concert plays and we could enjoy the music from our patio.

Our four families recently spent 4 days at the Beachway Resort for a small family reunion. Two of the 4 rooms were lovely, but the 2 poolside rooms were very small & in need of fresh paint & carpet cleaning. We also were surprised to learn that we were not allowed to use the pool after checkout (11 am) &... More

We've been staying at the Beachway for 2 weeks every year for over a decade. It's just about 3/4 mile from OxBow, Chicago Art Institute's summer camp where my husband studies glassblowing. The Beachway is SO accessible to EVERYTHING in the area - 1/2 walk to Lake Michigan, steps to the Chain Ferry to take you to downtown Saugatuck via... More

There is a swimming pool which is great the staff are very friendly rooms start from 120 dollars a night for a basic twin room. They don't provide breakfast... More

Wonderful place for me to spend my first vacation without my late husband. The waterfront suite was very nice and the view was great. Everyone at this resort was super friendly and happy! Loved the location!

The little hotel I has a "Bed and Breakfast" feel to it, but can accommodate a family. You also have your own private bathroom. We loved it. The teenage kids thought it was cute because it was unlike any place they have ever stayed. The staff was very friendly and helpful both on the phone and in persons they gave... More
