Rob greeted me at the office with information about the town and his fave restaurants. He sent me a text in case I needed to reach him. The room was nice and clean and pool was so relaxing with French music playing in the background and a lot of flowers surrounding the pool. He has floats and noodles available. This motel is very central to everything we visited, everything within about 10 minutes. Downtown Saugatuck, Downtown Douglas, and Holland we within a few minutes. The only thing that was a downfall for us was the beds were so high. We are both short and my mom is older and we had to use a cooler as a stepstool. This would not stop us from coming back though. Just be aware is you are traveling with an elderly parent or if you are shorter like us.
Is beautifully landscaped grounds, has outdoor swimming pool with jazz music playing all day, nice touch Rob!! About a 10 min ride to Saugatuck, not sure where to go and do, just ask Rob, he'll send you to the right sights, rooms and resort are quaint, they have shuffle board, fire pit, and free coffee in the morning. This was are first time there, next time we come back to Saugatuck we will definitely stay at the Saugatuck Retro Resort Motel, hey Rob the retro frigidaire refrigerator is a nice touch, you ROCK ROB!!!
The Saugatuck Retro resort motel is a relaxing trip back to the past when roadside motels dominated the roadways!!! Clean beautifully landscaped with a touch of community!!! Great pool hammock and fire pit to enjoy during our stay. Rob and his staff were attentive and insightful referring us to the best Saugatuck had to offer!! We will be back!! Thanks Rob!!!
My husband and I wanted a quick getaway to Michigan and this place was just the spot. Pulling in at the oh so cool "Saugatuck Motel" sign reminded me of driving around upstate NY with my family and staying at motels along the way. Rob greeted us at check in with lots of suggestions of things to do. Room was updated, welcoming and clean. Lots of places to sit on the grounds, a great fire pit area, Adirondack chairs in front of rooms and a great pool area. I am super picky about my pools and this one passed muster. Lovely landscaping and flowers everywhere. Added bonus was some outdoor shuffleboard. Location is a short drive (5-10 mins) to downtown Saugatuck and convenient to several beaches. We spent the afternoon at Saugatuck Dunes State Beach which was a 5 min drive and…
My husband and I love this little slice of private paradise . Our room was clean , cool and comfortable in this July heat. No musty issue as another reviewer just wrote, & was from a stay in summer 2021 ! Who does that? Owner Rob is very accommodating ,friendly and the whole grounds kept up nicely. The outdoor pool is lovely & truly an added bonus. I have stayed here with my girlfriend as well and will continue to come back and highly recommend Saugatuck Retro Resort. You won't be disappointed. Thanks again Rob for your gracious hospitality.
Rob is a fantastic host. He is socialable and very welcoming. We stayed here for the 4th of July holiday weekend. Floating in the pool was a great way to spend an afternoon and fire pit was perfect for a late night drink. The rooms are small but well done, however with so much happening outside and in Saugatuck and Douglas you just need a place to crash. We are already planning our next stay!
The motel was cute and Rob seemed very nice (made it a point to call every guest by their first name when they came into the office), but the rooms were terribly musty and humid. The wood paneling on the walls was even buckled from the humidity. There were individual air conditioners for the rooms, but it was so bad that my wife had an almost immediate allergic reaction, so it would be useless to try and get the AC to dry out the room. Rob showed us a second room, but it had the same issue. Rob would not refund our money that we had prepaid for the weekend, even though my wife could not stay for medical reasons. I decided it wasn't worth the fight, so we found another place down the road and paid a second time for the weekend. Very disappointed with the lack of empathy for…
My daughter and I traveled to Saugatuck, MI for a short stay and had a wonderful time. I found Saugatuck Retro Resort Motel online and it lived up to the very positive reviews. Rob, the owner, was welcoming and offered great suggestions for things to do in town. He was responsive by email beforehand which made it easier to plan. The room was comfy and clean and the outdoor pool was lovely. The motel is just a few min drive from downtown Saugatuck and only 20 min from Holland if you are in the mood for a windmill tour. I'd definitely stay again.
We were thrilled with this awesome little motel! Our room was clean and comfortable. The owner, Rob, met us at our car with our key, a travel guide and excellent restaurant recommendations! The grounds, pool and outdoor seating were great! We will definitely be back!
We adored this little gem!!! The grounds are so nice and it's very clean. Outdoor seating everywhere to gather and chat about the day's adventures. Rob (and his little doggos!!) are very nice hosts and are happy to provide directions and recommendations. We loved this impeccable little roadside motel and are already talking about going back. ❤
