Nicely designed & cleverly decorated faux mid-century motel. Staff helpful and friendly. Outdoor area with free grill and "Michirondack" chairs well-shaded. Douglas main drag an easy walk as are local grocery store, ice cream, and package store. Saugatuck's attraction and Lake MI Oval Beach a few minutes drive.

This is our third time to stay at this resort. Very clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable beds. The owner was very helpful. Giving us many options for food choices and places to visit. Loved eating at Wild Dog in Douglas and Respite coffe house in Douglas. Shopping and dinning Saugatuck never disappoints. We will be back again!

We stayed at The Pines for three nights the week before Memorial Weekend with my husband and 5 year old and really enjoyed ourselves. We felt the room and location were a good value, and the room itself was cleaner than clean. The staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable of Douglas and Saugatuck, and we enjoyed all of their restaurant... More

The room was perfect for our trip! It was very clean, beds very comfortable with lots of pillows, and nice blankets that kept us warm. The heat worked well, as did the refrigerator and microwave. The décor of the room and establishment was quaint and suited our tastes quite well. The size of the room was great - much larger... More

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.
