Stayed for 2 nights, my friend had the room next door to mine. The rooms were small, but spotless and very quiet. We created our own happy hour on the back patio. Super friendly staff. The motel was in a great location - an easy walk to Douglas.

Blue Star rates five stars for friendliness. I have no complaints whatsoever about our hosts or their responses to our needs during our stay. As far as the accommodations: Well, there's only so much you can do when renovating a 50's motel. I'm speaking from the perspective of a 60-year-old whose husband has some health issues. The room was small... More

Decided to book a last minute weekend getaway and I'm so happy we decided on the Blue Star Motel! It was only a three minute drive from Saugatauk and so close to Douglas Beach. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were the perfect size and opened to a great patio and back yard with a hot tub.... More

This met our needs, it was clean, convenient ( near the Tulip Festival activities ) and doesn't break the bank!. The manager was very kind and helpful when recommendations were needed for sites and restaurants. Free breakfast quite limited.

Blue Star Motel was wonderful for our overnight in Saugatuck/Douglas. Very comfortable bed, wonderful veranda for sitting, an overall great experience. The front desk (Billy) was great, very cordial and very thorough. Would not hesitate to stay here in the future.

We loved the cozy little room and the great service! Parking right by the door to our room is always a plus for us, and we also enjoyed being close to both Douglas and Saugatuck. Both towns were new to us and we enjoyed their charm. The best surprise, though, was the very excellent breakfast at the restaurant next door.... More

Rusty and Billy helped us have the best of experiences at Saugatuck/Douglas. We had a reservation at Starelite Resort, the other motel they manage, and when we checked in Rusty told us that, according to what we were looking for, we would be better at the Blue Star. A room happened to be available on the other place, so we... More

This is a small hotel with the perfect setup. Only 9 rooms here so it's quiet and every room has a walk out backyard access to a setup which you would have with your back yard. Yard chairs....hot tub....outdoor porch furniture with lights. Close to downtown and the brewery!!! The stay includes a breakfast voucher for the cafe next door.... More

Loved almost everything about this charming motel. We were impressed with the welcome. We had great communication with the staff and, from the moment we booked to our departure, felt they were there to answer our questions and make sure we enjoyed our stay. We really liked that we could walk to downtown Douglas and that breakfast in the restaurant... More
