Upon check in, front desk person walked down to our room and let us in. I thought this was a nice touch. The room was very clean and cute. With a beachy old school vibe, but updated. There was hot tub in room, it did have a damp odor and house keeping did try to address it. There were hammocks,...

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at Starlite. My girlfriend and I wanted a last minute getaway to a quiet place with easy access to downtown Saugatuck as well as Lake Michigan that was also dog friendly. This is not easy to find. We felt immediately at home when we arrived to Starlite. We were greeted with...

I am so glad I found this place! A few years ago, my Mom and I came to Starlite for a girls weekend away and we fell in love with it. The decor is charming, the pool is great (wonderful seats and never too busy), and the staff is amazing. They go above and beyond to help you out. When...

The resort is absolutely fabulous. Quite, charming, clean and a wonderful staff. I found the Starlite Resort online and my sisters and I booked a one night stay on 9/10. Our adjoining rooms were large, roomy and very clean. The rooms have a cool 50s retro theme. The property has a pool and lots of game activities to play. It...

Old time classic family motel, all remodeled and clean and comfortable. Pool was great and there were even grills available if needed. We went during Venetian-fest and there was a shuttle bus each day until 10:30 pm at night. It came within 15 min. Breakfast each morning was cereal, instant oatmeal, bagels and fruit.

We chose the Starlite Resort for two reasons: we could take our dog there and we liked that in the photos it was designed with mid-century, fun decor. We were overall fairly pleased with the lodging, but there were a few things we didn't like or were disappointed in. Another reviewer on here said the room she had was huge,...

The Starlite Resort met all of our needs. We weren't at the motel a lot during the day, but we did have an opportunity to use the pool twice. It was refreshing & cooling after a hot afternoon. We also enjoyed the picnic tables & grounds. I am looking forward to a return visit.
