We stayed here and loved it! It is very clean and the kitchens are so convenient. The location is perfect! We will be staying here again soon

My family is very hard to satisfy, but Arrowhead was great. Everyone loved it! Location, workers, and town are the BEST

I agree with SOME of the reviews. We stayed last summer and I just arranged to stay again this July-We love it and our whole family enjoyed Arrowhead Resort. When you think about it, that says a lot! We have had 30+ people stay at Arrowhead (all ages and all levels of "snobbiness") and it was the overwhelming place to return to! Some of the reviews debate the price or whether it is a "RESORT" or not. Really?? All good lodging is expensive in Saugatuck. Arrowhead is simply a very nice, comfortable, and clean place to enjoy Saugatuck. As one review states, there are NO "resorts" in Saugatuck-I agree! In fact the town closes in the winter! Arrowhead does NOT have a pool! It IS walkable to all my favorite restaurants and galleries. Also the shopping is GREAT in Saugatuck!

I guess, in conclusion, if you are looking for a enjoyable place to stay that is clean, fairly priced and walkable to everything; stay at Arrowhead Resort. If you are a world traveler that is accustomed to all the amenities of the finer hotels in the World; nothing in Saugatuck will satisfy you and Saugatuck is NOT for you and you will be disappointed!

This is a very nice place to stay and the location can't be beat! Our whole family was impressed! I read a couple of reviews about the term "resort" and I aggree, there are no resorts in Saugatuck, but I think it is just the name. When I think of "resort," I think Disney-this is a "Michigan Resort" and I would not compare ANY of the lodging establishments to Disney! It is Michigan! We have stayed many times in Saugatuck and this is the best location, condition and service for the price. It is very clean and the staff was great. We will be coming back!! It was great!

A resort has a pool, a cafe, cable and internet - just to scratch the surface. ArrowHole has none of these things. It also doesn't have:

> a kitchen with wine glasses
> a coffee table at the sofa
> a quiet air conditioner
> windows that let in light and views
> nice bath towels, bedding and pillows
> room to walk between the murphy bed and the sofabed
> soundproof walls
> lighting controls
> operable CD/DVD player
> nice patio furniture

At $250 per night a "resort" delivers on all these things, but most importantly provides some breathing room within the unit, not a cramped bedroom sized space where, when you open the front door you walk right into the bed! Beware of the hype...this place is a rip off.

For $300/night, you expect to, at a bare minimum, not find LOTS of dirt in the cupboards, sand in the sheets, and hair and a used bandaid in the shower. Unfortunately, that all happened to us. Our initial voice mail was not returned, and the unit was cleaned after our e-mail (but not the cupboard), but it's ridiculous to have to face this sort of thing. For that price, the unit itself was also far short of what you should expect. For example, there is a couch, but no table, meaning the only place for our little kids to eat was the kitchen counter. The website also ridiculously over-sells the unit we had (#1). The description says that the unit has granite countertops, modern appliances, and plasma television, all of which were patently false. Also, the "overlooking the harbor" pitch is silly. There is a view of the harbor from across the street, but new condos (also managed by the same company) obscure half of the view they show on the website. The ONLY saving grace of this unit at this property was that you could walk to downtown. Definitely not recommended.
