Maplewood Hotel
Ranked #13 of 19 Saugatuck B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 March 2012

Stay at the Maplewood, and it's a short walk to all of the attractions in downtown Saugatuck. The Hotel is right next to the Post office, with the community park on the other side.

The building is very old, and many of the floors are sagging and creak (adds to the charm). The exterior facade is a beautiful Greek Revival style, with four large wooden Corinthian columns, and a covered entry canopy which extends over the public sidewalk to the street curb. If you are lucky, you can park your car RIGHT in front of the hotel.

The town is quaint, and reminds me of the feel of Mackinaw island, but with the added bonus of being able to drive your car there (with no parking fees), as well as a lack of horse-poop-smell all over town.

The hosts are extremely friendly and willing to go out of thier way to make sure your stay will be a wonderful one. Fresh cookies or brownies are available in the evening as well as goodies in candy dishes placed around common areas. The main seating area features a baby grand player piano, which the hosts will play for you if you ask... a nice extra.

The standard rooms are cozy (small) but comfortable. The TV with built-in DVD is small (but you really don't want to be watching much tv when there is so much to see in this town). In case of a rainy day, the hotel has a good selection of DVDs you can check out, and there are a decent amount of cable tv channels. The bed is a comfortable queen size, just right, not too firm, not too soft. Fancy thin mints on the dresser are a nice touch. The walls seperating the bathrooms do not have sound insulation, and it's possible to hear conversations from the adjoining rooms (so be careful what you say). It's best to use your library voice while in your room.

This hotel features a seasonal pool and patio area (closed during our stay).

The breakfast is good, and is different every day. Fresh fruit, baked goods and cereal are also available everyday. Coffee is available from around 8:15am and breakfast is served between 9:00am and 10:00am. The two main areas for dining include a sunny porch with 5 or 6 tables to the East, and an interior dining area with about 5 or 6 tables behind the second stairway.

My wife and I used a Groupon for a two night stay here. It was more than we usually pay for a romantic getaway, but it was well worth it. I can't imagine us staying here at full price during high season, but maybe someday if I hit the lotto... :) If you can afford it, I'd highly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: The suites with fireplaces and spa tubs are much larger than the standard rooms. Every room here is...

This is a very nice place to stay; nicely decorated and conveniently located. The staff are terrific and accomodating. There wasn't one thing I asked for that wasn't granted or made available right away, including wine glasses and opener for wine that I brought, a knife and plate for some cheese that I brought, and when my girlfriend couldn't get off of a morning conference call in time for breakfast, they made us two plates with all the trimmings and brought it on a silver platter! Staying here was truly like being a welcome guest in someone's home. We stayed in the suite with the fireplace and jacuzzi tub, and were very pleased. I definitely will stay here again when next I am in Saugatuck!

Room Tip: I had read some other reviewers' troubles with rooms but we did not experience any of that. Ever...

We love the Maplewood Hotel during the holidays! The inn is decorated so tastefully and we always enjoy a warm, crackling fire in the large common area in the evening with a glass of wine. Our room also has a fireplace and a jacuzzi tub. We like to think of it as our early Christmas gift to each other before the hussle and bussle consumes our days. The shopping downtown is festive and fun and there is always something to enjoy like horse drawn carriage rides, caroling on the streets, warm cider, coffee and many nice restaurants to choose from. A good nights sleep and up for a delicious, beautifully plated breakfast in the dining room. I always purchase a gift certificate or two from the Maplewood to give as gifts to those I love. You can't go wrong at the Maplewood Hotel!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, however, we go for the King Suites.

Two years ago, my now fiancé and I stayed at the Maplewood Hotel for a relaxing weekend getaway from the city. Not only is the location steps away from the downtown activity; but we really enjoyed the onsite amenities including the pool and patio areas along with the convenience of a delicious breakfast each morning. Our experience was so positive that we reserved the entire hotel for our wedding guests!

We had a wonderful time at the Maplewood Hotel with our friends from Chicago. We were warmly greeted, which set the tone for our weekend. The receptionist was able to call ahead and have our name put on a list for a Friday evening dinner at Everyday People's Cafe where reservations are not accepted. Thanks to that call, we only had a 5-10mi. wait, not too bad for a popular restaurant on a busy Friday night! Our room was well decorated, we had a warm fireplace and an immaculate bathroom with big fluffy towels. The bed was really comfortable and what a great sleep we had, it was so peaceful and quiet. The breakfasts that were served were delicious. One day we had a baked french toast with all sorts of side dishes, fruit, yogurt, etc. and the next day we had a spinach and ham quiche, all served on Lennox china. The owner, Catherine, could not have been any more welcoming. We shared some great conversation and she gave suggestions on what to do while in Saugatuck. We know we will return to the Maplewood again, not just because of the amazing accommodations and ambience but also to see Catherine, Cynthia, Clarissa and the rest of the friendly staff.

Room Tip: I'd suggest selecting a room with a fireplace, it's worth it.
