I was looking for a place on the beach within 3 hrs of Saline, and this was the only hotel that fit the bill. This is really not a resort, but a quaint old motel that has been nicely renovated. We had no complaints at all about the room, and the continental breakfast was superb, with homemade baked goods every morning. Most appealing to me was the availability of bicycles and kayaks (included). Behind the hotel are lovely wide trails for bikes or just walking. There are 3 fire rings that stay lit until 10 pm. Yes there is a long stairway down to the beach, but it's great exercise and the view from the bluff is amazing. Saugatuk is a 5 min drive, full of great shops and restaurants. Internet is only available in the lobby and cell phone reception is sketchy, but it is peaceful and romantic!
