The owners are the sweetest people! They will help you out with anything you need during your stay. They own bikes that you can rent for $6/hr and there is a beautiful trail behind the hotel. It's in hart, mi which is the perfect distance from sleeping bear dunes and Pentwater. I would recommend going to both places. There's not... More

We read the reviews from previous guests and after our stay, all we can say is, we'll be back. The owners of the hotel go above and beyond to make you feel very welcome and as if you were a guest in their own home. Granted, there are no frills, meaning no pool or free breakfast, but what you do... More

We recently stayed for 6 nights and were impressed with the very clean room, friendly owners, and comfort in the room. Everything worked great including WiFi and the cleaning service left the room spotless, cleaner than most chain hotels. We recommend anyone needing a place to stay in the area to check it out. Restaurant next door had great breakfast.

The rooms and the amenities are very basic, nothing fancy, which is fine. But, this has to be one of the cleanest well run hotels I've stayed at in a long time. It is a family run business and they care. If you want a place to party and get crazy, this is not the spot, but if you need... More

We were in Hart on a bike trip and were lucky enough to end up at the American Host Inn. Our room was quite clean, charming, and comfortable. But the best part was Don and Dar, the owners (and their dog Bear), who are incredibly warm, kind and helpful.

I can not say how much I enjoyed my stay at the AMERICAN HOST Hotel. This Family owned and operated Hotel is full of the nicest people you will ever meet. Don and his wife maintain the grounds, and keep everything in a neat and clean way. .

We stayed there for two nights in May.The room was super clean and spacious with a comfortable recliner and a super mattress.Silver Lake State Park is just 8-10 minute drive away from this hotel.You cannot ask for anything more in this price. One added advantage to stay here is the restaurant called "That Place" next to it whose food quality... More

Don is a saint! When my husband and I were traveling home from vacationing in Ludington our car was struck by a turkey which shattered our windshield rendering us unable to drive home. The gentleman who towed our car off the highway recommended this hotel and I am forever grateful that he did. The room was cozy, clean, and comfortable... More

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
