This little Inn is great. When you first pull up into their drive way, you might not like what you see. Once you enter, you’ll be pleasantly surprised; the place is antique, full of history, amazingly warm, and well maintained. You’ll almost feel the history as there are reminders of it everywhere; on the walls, the decor, the windows and doors, etc. The staff is easy going and pleasant. Definitely a hidden gem and worth exploring!
Very clean, well kept up, charming rooms and quiet environment. Staff are warm, friendly and ready to help. My only criticisms would be a very poor breakfast for a B&B - cold cereal, breads, limited fruit. And the TV reception was poor with very few channels. But overall, a great place to stay.
We spent one night at the Montague Inn in Saginaw. It’s a quaint B & B with 17 different rooms located about a mile from the Dow Event Center. The rooms were clean and it was fairly quiet at night. We had one of the smaller rooms in what was the servant quarters, the Rust Room, and it was lovely. Rooms which are not checked out to guests are open for touring and we enjoyed nosing about, imagining what it must have been like to live there. I’d say the Mary Sage was the nicest bedroom and the Montague Suite is the nicest overall. There are two gathering spaces, a library and a room with tables and chairs that used to be a restaurant, if friends want to gather. Breakfast included coffee, tea, cocoa, hard boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage and bacon, yogurt, applesauce, toast, bagels, and some fresh fruit. Very limited access to Uber, but we were able to get several rides while there. Staff were friendly and helpful. The Inn could use a little care, as we noted a few water stains on the ceilings, a leak in the breakfast room, broken shutters, and chipped cups and plates.
What a relaxing place to stay with wonderful staff. The warm fire in the library after breakfast was so nice. The breakfast was tasty. The rooms were accommodating and comfortable. Saginaw was a nice town that I enjoyed more than I thought I would.
The Montague Inn is a beautiful house steeped in history, situated on a beautiful city plot along the river. But, you don't have to look too closely to notice the bloom on this place has been fading for quite some time. While we were fortunate not to find anything dirty or broken during our stay, all of the furniture in our room was well worn and had certainly seen better times. Our room was spacious, but lacked good ventilation; management provided us with a fan because the humidity/temperature outside was such that the building's AC wasn't really cooling very well. Had there been screens on our windows, we could have let in a nice breeze. The bed was springy and squeaky -- coupled with the high humidity, it wasn't easy to get a good night's sleep. The breakfast was reliable but exactly the same every day. The hot entree was scrambled eggs with green peppers, sausage links, and (rrreally oily) hashbrowns. Aside from this, the other options were the standard continental breakfast fare (bagels, cereal, sweetened yogurt cups, etc.). By the third day, I brought in my own cereal because the only options they had available were kids' cereals. The staff is friendly, here, and that makes it all the more difficult to complain... and yet this place really could (and should) do better. The place needs another facelift if it's going to stay in business. Suffice it to say, when you stay at an Inn or a B&B and pay a little more, you expect a much better experience than a run-of-the-mill hotel. Our experience was not poor (I've definitely had worse), but did not live up to our expectations.
I loved the stay at this inn. There are a few details keeping me from giving it five stars, but they are really nitpicky and if 4.5 were possible, that's the direction I would go. The rooms were charming. There were so many different rooms from a beautiful master suite to the smaller rooms on the third floor and in the servants quarters. We booked online through hotels.com and got a great rate, but also one of the smaller rooms in the back. Turns out that was just fine! The room was more than adequate for one or two nights, with a big bathroom, comfy bed, and PLENTY if heat (it was cold out). Ricardo, the MOD greeted us warmly and spent a lot of time showing is around the place. I'm a bit of a history nerd, so it gave me a chance to really enjoy looking around a mansion built during prohibition without having to worry about not touching things like I would in a museum tour. (See if you can find the secret doors in the library!) We were out late but returned to find the door unlocked for us to come in (Ricardo had said he would lock it behind us when we got back). We spent the night comfy and cozy in the RUST room. Not a lot of light at sunrise... Which we liked... But GORGEOUS views of the sunset over the water... And yes... We saw deer. So why not 5? Previous reviewers have pointed out that this is no longer a B&B, and indeed, the breakfast was only a light Continental breakfast... Not much there. I'm a coffee snob and the coffee tasted... Well... Cheap... I think the coffee maker needs to be cleaned and they should put it a better quality of coffee. Having a key to access the back door after hours as opposed to having to leave it unlocked until the last person comes in would make more sense to me, and would probably make me feel a bit more comfortable with security... Though this is A VERY quiet area. From a housekeeping/maintenance standpoint, the rooms were well kept and maintained for a building as old as this one, but some of the details were missing... Nothing major and nothing that impacted our stay... Just details.
Although the innkeeper was friendly and the house is beautiful, I can't recommend it. The rooms weren't clean; I noticed hairs and dirty spots on the toilet seat and floor, spots on the mirror, rug, and upholstery, dirty breakfast dishes in the kitchen, and an old musty smell everywhere, indicating that the room and house hadn't been thoroughly cleaned. Based on that, we decided not to use the tub either. Combined with a very squeaky bed, it didn't work well for a romantic getaway.
So, I arrived late for my stay. Pulled in after midnight. Ricardo, the Innkeeper was waiting on me and couldn't have been nicer. He did a great job of giving me the overview of the property and all of the amenities. He then escorted me to my room and I was very pleased. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. The bathroom was awesome. In the morning I had one of the best hot showers I have ever had in a hotel. I don't normally get up to try the free breakfast, but I did this time and I'm glad I did! The food was hot and delicious! I only stayed one night at The Montague, but I really wish I could have extended my stay!
I normally hesitate staying at B&B's because I feel like I'm in someone else's house. That wasn't the case the minute I walked into the Montague Inn. Ricardo greeted me with a smile & plenty of information as he showed me to my room. I was only staying for a night but could see how enjoyable the Montague would be for a longer visit. It sits on 8 acres on a lake. Though i was there in February, there was still plenty of life outside. Didn't have time for breakfast but while grabbing a cup of coffee and having a conversation with the innkeeper, saw a fox out back. Curious, later I walked to the lake where they hold weddings and other events and saw a bald eagle above. You could see how the place would be incredible in Spring through Fall. That said, even though it was a called February evening, my room was warm, clean and comfortable. Great night's sleep. There are various different sized rooms and suites. Traveling alone and for just one night, I got a basic room but saw some of the other options and was impressed. Ricardo was there again to handle check out, which again, was simple. Just a great experience-look forward to coming back.
The Montague Inn used to be an excellent place for staying and eating. However, it is no longer the case. Very overpriced for what you get now. Sheets and bed covering were dirty, and the breakfast was low quality.
