The Starlite Resort‘s sister property is located just a three-minute drive down the very highway that gives this modern retro roadside motel its name. Technically in Douglas, Michigan, the sister city to Saugatuck, this modern retro spot is only minutes from the boutiques and good eats of downtown.

We happened to be the only people staying - great as we has the hot tub to ourselves. Really nice outside space with chairs and hammock and most rooms have a little sheltered space out the back door, perfect for sitting out if it rains.
Nice, modernly decorated room and smart, clean bathroom - seemed rather pricey but my guess is this is the area rather than the hotel being over priced. Good breakfast options in plentiful supply. Very handy location to walk to the lovely Saugatuck brewery just along the road.
This gem of a place was delightful. The cozy rooms are thoughtfully appointed with so many extras you'd never expect. The patio and hot tub were a bonus surprise. Great location away from the Saugatuck crowds and near so many restaurants in Douglas. Staff was very accommodating; we look forward to staying again.
