The 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. Today the Captain’s Quarters Motel is a 15 room thoroughly modernized facility with a classic New England exterior. It is owned by a husband and wife carrying on the love of Cape Cod and the area's relaxing atmosphere. Located on historic route 31 just a brief walk to the center of Saugatuck via shady side streets, Captain's Quarter motel is ideally suited for those seeking the friendliness and warmth of a privately-owned motel near downtown Saugatuck.The congenial innkeepers will regale guests with a litany of colorful local stories and offer opinions on area restaurants, shops, and activities. The rooms are simply furnished with an accent on light woods and earth tones. They are clean, casual and comfortable. The rooms offer queen, double queen and king accommodations. No-smoking in every room per Michigan law. The comfort of guests is thoughtfully considered by the amenities which include HD satellite TV, air conditioning, small refrigerators, clock radios, hair dryers and WIFI in every room. The rooms also have windows that open for those who prefer the fresh pure Michigan air. Small dogs are permitted in designated rooms as long as they are accompanied by their owners. Decidedly relaxing and intentionally comfortable – Captain’s Quarters prides itself in providing clean well-maintained accommodations, nicely landscaped gardens, a relaxing picnic area and occasional evening campfires where guests can socialize, make new friends and share their Michigan vacation experiences. Old-fashioned hospitality – good humor – friendly service. These are the reasons that guests become friends and return year after year.
