Rob's great
Rob is a great host. He made sure we knew about all the new restaurants. It's was quite a nice experience to have quietness, and not round the clock sirens like in the city. An easy drive to downtown Saugatuck & Douglas.

Retro Rob was a good host
It was a fun change from the chain hotels. It was nestled in a wooded area and full of 1960 style decor, but new and fresh.

Glad I stayed here!
I am really happy I booked my stay at the Saugatuck Retro Motel! Very peaceful setting, quiet, and with tons of personality. The room was clean and well-furnished with a comfy bed, fridge, bead board walls, new linens and bathroom fixtures, and all the amenities I needed. I loved sitting out in front of my room - each room comes with a set of Adirondack chairs! - with my morning coffee or evening wine and read or just relax. The owner is super friendly - gave me awesome suggestions for restaurants - and has really worked to build a lovely place for families, couples, and singles alike. There is a fire pit with seating, basketball hoop, hammock, and even a swimming pool in the center of the oval drive. Also lots of foliage and flowers and big trees. The motel was full for the days I was there but never did it feel crowded or noisy. I had a lovely, relaxing stay and as a single female with a constant eye for safety, I had zero concerns here.

Small and uncomfortable
Extremely small room and very uncomfortable bed. For the amount of money I paid, I was disappointed. The lock on the bathroom widow didn't work either so I didn't feel safe. On a positive note, the owner was super nice and friendly.

Haven away from town!
Had a great experience here. I felt like I stepped back in time to when Motels were a haven for travelers! There was great nostalgic music playing by the pool and the surrounding area was very lush with plants and flowers. Beautiful place to stay! The service and cleanliness were very good as well. The owner was very friendly and gave us some tips on local places to explore.
