Captain’s Quarters was the first motel in Saugatuck. It was built as a
post-World War II lodging facility that introduced the cutting edge concept of
"Motor Inns" to the lakeshore. The motel began as a modest three-room
motor inn built to capitalize on the auto traffic created by vacationers who
were flocking to Lake Michigan beaches for summer vacations.
the Captain’s Quarters Motel is a 16 room thoroughly modernized facility with a
classic New England exterior. It is owned by a gregarious area native who has
personally restored and expanded this Saugatuck Hotel to reflect his love of
Cape Cod and his comfort with that area’s relaxing life style. Foreign travelers agree with the regional
comparison and often make it their choice when visiting the area.
