Too pricey for just ok place

We were there with many other people for a college weekend, and hotel was unprepared; staff could not keep up with breakfast demand- 6 empty coffee urns and empty sugar/creamer, when food refills were brought out they were all undercooked, little oatmeal stuck to the bottom of warmer, tables not wiped off. Mattress was lumpy and coverlet too heavy for the weather. Location was good, quiet behind a shopping center, though hard to find initially. Staff was pleasant. Stay was ok but rate should have been 2/3 what we paid. Will shop around, even pay more for better value next time.

Great stay

Cute hotel! We enjoyed our stay during our anniversary weekend. The room is clean and comfortable. Some kid noise in the hallway but it's a parenting issue I guess. I do recommend this hotel to couples who are spending time in Saugatuck or Holland.

Beat our expectations

The hotel is a little hard to find as it is buried back behind a shopping center but was great once we found it. The staff was friendly, the room was very nice, and while we had breakfast plans each morning the breakfast seemed like a nice spread. They always had coffee available and there were plenty of stores, restaurants, and attractions within 30 mins. It is a 10 min drive to Holland and 30 mins to either Grand Haven or Grand Rapids giving you plenty of options. The only thing I will note is they do not have an elevator. The only way to the 2nd floor is via stairs. This was not a problem for us but we did see another family who had to guide their elderly grandmother down the steps backwards just to get her down.

Tulip Festival

The room was clean and the hotel is located close to Walmart. The only drawback for the hotel is there is no lift.

Great stay!

This was one of the cleanest motels we have stayed in. The new renovations are lovely! The staff was very accommodating and friendly! We did find it odd that there was no elevator available, but were told that with only a two story building, that was not required. This seems to limit accessibility for "seniors" who might find steps a challenge. All in all, however, we were very impressed and would find another of these chains in the future! :)

Not what we thought.

When we got there, we found that the pool was closed and that the work-out room was also. Front desk people were extremely unhelpful. The room itself was not bad. We felt we should have known going in of the parts of the motel not in operation.

Comfortable business trip

The staff was friendly and very helpful and I will stay here again. The location was perfect for my business trip and I enjoyed being in a quieter area instead of fighting traffic.
