We stay here in all seasons. Near Silver Lake sand dunes, easy trip to Lake Michigan. This area is great in the Fall, and in Spring there is local asparagus. Roll into town for the best Mexican food on this side of the state. Rooms always clean, everything works, secure, quiet hours observed. Easy to find, easy on and off... More

I have stayed at this motel over thirty nights during the last few years. During every stay, the room has been clean, the hosts have been gracious, and the mattresses have been super. You cannot sleep on a better mattress than what this motel has. I think they are replaced when needed, contrary to other lodging places. There is a... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel which was in a convenient location while having tree-work done at our cottage on Lake Michigan. The room was very clean and quiet with a refrigerator and microwave. The hosts were very nice and answered our questions and gave us some tips. Not luxurious but clean and nice.

Whenever we stay at the American Host Inn we feel very safe and welcome. The grounds are immaculate and the parking lot is well lit. The room is always perfectly clean. The owners are so hospitable, helpful, and generous. This kindness and warmth can be felt even when you call to make your reservation. The family- friendly quiet time is... More

Dan and Dar are kind of 'Mom and Pop' type people. They make you feel like family. They had the cheapest rate around and even better that they threw in free Mac Woods Dune ride tix. The room was much larger than equivelants we've stayed in (at Marriott in big cities) and EXCEPTIONALLY clean (inside and on the grounds), flat... More

The room was fairly large, enough space to easily fit 6 people comfortably, yet the owner is incredibly strict about having only four people in one room, claiming the extra person is "hard on the room". He broke his own policy and allowed me to stay as a fifth person (which I admire), so I gave him a 20 for... More

The hotel was very clean. But was disappointed in the owner. He came to the room at 8:55am on our day of departure, pounding on our door to tell us to make sure to return the key before we left. We were away for our anniversary, without our kids so we could rest and catch up on our sleep. Everybody... More
