Recent guest reviews

We had a very nice stay. The ease of check in and check out was great! The first time I’ve ever had it that easy. The room was clean and nicely updated. It was priced fairly and close to what we wanted to do. We hiked from Dorr Felt Mansion to Lake Michigan to watch the sunset. A nice little getaway.

Nicely updated, warm and comfortable. Great throwback to the days of the drive up motel. Breakfast was about what you would expect but the pastries where much better than the typical offering. Guests were very friendly too, nice small motel, we definitely would stay again.

Comfortable, clean, efficient ; great price. Convenient location,

Simple no frills kinda place. Place to put your head and sleep and it’s clean and neat. Good for the money

We have never stayed in a motel before. We wanted to try something new, and booked with Bluestar. It was so easy, they have a keypad with a code to get in, so we didn't have to worry about keys. And it was such a simple stay. The room was clean the bathroom spacious enough and the bed was comfortable.

Nicely renovated motel with thoughtful details. Great courtyard in the rear and comfortable room.

This quaint property has been brought up to date with modern furnishings including very good Wi-Fi service. The bed is very comfortable. Meal tickets issued at check-in can be used at an adjacent diner that has been a local landmark since the 1950's and remains popular with local residents. Good food and up-tp-date local information. Looking forward to my next stay.

While it's not a super fancy place to stay, it's clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are a little worn, but more than serviceable. I very much enjoyed the free water and snacks and the manager was so friendly. The breakfast at M&M was also wonderful good food, nice atmosphere, friendly people. I would definitely stay here again.

Could not ask for more. Definitely will return. But will contact hotel directly for reservations!

We stayed for two nights at this conveniently located motel on our recent visit to Saugatuck Michigan. Consistent with other positive reviews, we were impressed by the cleanliness and comfort of the motel while still reflecting the character and charm of a vintage road-side building. The helpful staff was even able to accommodate our 18’ trailered boat. Immediately next door to a convenience store, ice cream shop, and two restaurants; a very short drive to the Saugatuck Brewing Company and its great food and beer.

When someone says the word "motel" I imagine a sad little place along side a small highway with tiny windows and a vacancy / no vacancy neon sign that could be full but the no is actually burnt out. The Blue Star Motel is not that at all - the place is more in line with some boutique hotels. The decor of the room is modern, the bedding is comfortable and the service is outstanding. While the rooms are small, when I travel to places for a quick weekend getaway, I'm not planning to spend a lot of time in my room, so comfort and location trump size. They designed everything well by maximizing a narrow closet with extra height and pull out drawers for storage. Blue Star offers free or discounted breakfast at the quaint restaurant next door which we took advantage of both mornings we were there. You also get free snacks and juice/coffee/water in the room which is replenished daily if needed. The location is very close to downtown Douglas and about 1.5 miles from everything in Saugatuck. If we're in the area, we will definitely stay again and will be sure to recommend it to others.
