“Cheap, but grungy”
Reviewed April 24, 2012 via mobile

Room was inexpensive, but place is run down and grungy. Lots of ants everywhere. Outside looks ok, but inside is pretty crappy. I would stay at this hotel again.

Saugatuck and Douglas are tourist destinations, so it's not surprising that there are many nice b & b's around the area. But for those who don't want to spend $150-$250 a night on a room, there are alternatives like the Best Western. It's really not bad - the desk staff was pleasant enough, the continental breakfast was varied and perfectly okay. The pool (although small) is open until 11:00pm which is nice.

Still, there was something that always made it seem a bit stale - the smell in the carpets, the lack of amenities, the rough towels, the bare bones quality of many items in the room. If you can get a good price and are looking for a hotel with a pool I would recommend it - otherwise look for something else.

This motel provided your basic room and for the area the price was reasonable. We had no complaints except for the noise level from the floor above. Apparently the ceiling was made of wood and when people above you walked around you could hear creaking with every step. Normally not too big a deal, but unfortunately a person above us was up and pacing the entire night. If you sleep well there should be no problem. If not ask for a second floor room just to be safe.

This place is EXPENSIVE for what you get! There is no elevator and the carpets look like they haven't been vacuumed for ages! The carpet that is on the floors doesn't even match the carpet that trims it! Being a PLATINUM Best Western Card holder, I would have to say that this place is a huge disappointment! Sorry, but $119.00 is just a joke and we only stayed here because it was our LAST RESORT!
