My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Blue Star Motel as well as a cookout the night before for our guests... and it was AMAZING!! Not only did Rusty help me plan and organize many of the details for my wedding, he also put together the most elegant and beautiful wedding reception for us! It was so far above and beyond my expectations and I am so grateful for the memories I will forever have! Rusty, Billy, and the crew saw to it that every last detail was absolutely perfect! Our guests were so blown away by how beautiful and perfect everything was and by how courteous and helpful the staff were as well! They are still talking about it! I couldn't be happier with our experience at the Blue Star Motel! Best time ever! Thank you to Rusty and his crew!

My husband and I took a chance last New Year's Holiday and stayed here not knowing what to expect. The reviews were good so we said why not. Well, this is the nicest cleanest place. It is just outside Saugatuck on the Blue Stary Hwy and the owner, Rusty, is the nicest man with the best staff. Very personable and friendly. Rusty told us where to get the great deals and all the happenings around town. We also recieved free breakfast coupons to the restaurant next door and free comedy club tickets for a place in Saugatuck. We loved it so much we just came back from another visit for our anniversary. The rooms are small but VERY CLEAN and the bathroom has a door that goes outside into a little courtyard with a couple of chairs or you can use the deck next to the hot tub, WHICH WAS ALSO VERY CLEAN. We love it here and will always stay here when we go to Saugatuck. The cost is very reasonable and you won't find better hospitality anywhere.

Great location in Douglas near Saugatuck. The rooms were spotless and the service was wonderful. Rusty was the perfect host. The backyard and hot tub were relaxing and felt so far away from the hustle and bustle. The free breakfast at the Wayside was delightful. Don't miss visiting Oval Beach.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights for a anniversary getaway trip. The motel room was clean and nice with a comfortable bed. The staff was great and Rusty gave us tips of things to,do and see while in town and its close to everything. We will plan a return trip to the Blue Star.

We've been vacationing in the Saugatuck/Douglas area for over 16 years and have stayed at numerous places. This one is simply the best in the area. Rooms are fantastic and the backyard area, which is off all of them, is beautiful. Staff is wonderful too. If you are an AARP member be sure to mention it to Rusty; you will get an even better price than the already wonderful one on a regular room. The price also includes a fabulous breakfast at the diner around the corner.

Room Tip: All are just great.

Rusty, billy and Sarah went above and beyond to make our stay at Blue Star Motel a Blue Ribbon event. From Rusty helping us with reservations and tips for transportation to Billy helping accommodate our dog to Sarah's buoyant personality. The rooms are clean cool in design and the back patio and hot tub are so relaxing. Great for a Chicago get-away.
