I primarily judge my lodging accommodations, by THE BED. After- all, when you are on vacation, the most time you should spend in the room should be in the bed. THE BED at the Pines Motor Lodge & Retro Gift Gallery, is one of the BEST I have ever slept in....... and I have slept in hundreds of hotels, motels,... More

Stayed at the Pines this past weekend with two of my girlfriends for a weekend getaway. Checkout was a breeze, and Steve at the front desk was filled with good recos for places to eat and cab companies to call (we were looking to hire one to take us around to local wineries). We stayed in room #3 and it... More

Just spent my second stay in 2 years at the Pines. I was very impressed how the rooms are still as fresh and clean as they were 2 years ago. Most motels and even nice hotels normally have some wear showing - could not find any here. The retro décor is still attractive and comfortable. The owner and cleaning person... More

The owner is on hand and very helpful. Close to beautiful beach with gorgeous sunset and walking distance to the quaint shops and restaurants of both Douglas and Saugatuck. The updates and furnishings are beautiful and loved the Adirondack chairs out side of each room. Also a nice little area for grilling. The weather was beautiful and we golfed at... More

We are just home from several days at The Pines, and we are ready to go back, what a relaxing few days. The place is spotless and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They helped us plan our days in Douglas, Saugatuck and South Haven since they know all the places to go and see. Their restaurant suggestions were... More

My husband and I traveled to Douglas/Saugatuck for a weekend getaway to celebrate our anniversary. When I found the website for the Pines I was immediately interested. I loved the kitchy look and I was not disappointed. The Pines is an adorable, comfortable and very clean motel! Upon arrival, Steve gave us the heads up on some of the best... More

I echo an earlier review, “The best thing about the Pines is the location...very convenient to beaches, downtown Douglas, and Saugatuck”. Nice little motel with lovely grounds but not quite a must-stay. Coffee and meager breakfast not available until 9 am. Luckily, it’s a short walk into Douglas where Respite opens at 7:30 (Great coffee!). The room was nice sized... More

My husband and I had spent a night here back in 2006 and had not managed to get back since then. Stayed a Friday and Saturday night goofing around Douglas and Saugatuck. Douglas is an easy walk from the motel and while smaller than Saugatuck has a few really good resturaunts and shops. Grocery store right across the street. You... More

The retro feel of this charming and updated motel is apparent right away when you see the motel sign, the bright green roof, and the oversized and fun-sized pink flamingos; perhaps a nod to the Florida Keys. The check-in area also serves as a sundries and eclectic gift shop. Pine trees surround the motor lodge. The room we had was... More

I stumbled upon this adorable motel during a road trip down the Michigan coast. I hadn't made any reservations and found myself with little options until I called The Pines. They had one room left and I was hesitant to take it because I was skeptical of any place with availability left and any place with Motor Lodge in its... More
