Great location, a couple blocks away from the hustle and bustle of Mackinac City. Located across the street from the lake. Hotel and room was very clean and quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast with an option to have it delivered to your room. Wine and cheese get-together from 6-7 each evening. We would stay there again!!

We stayed here for just a short, last minute trip to the UP before school starts. Mother, daughter getaway. The hotel is quaint, the grounds are gorgeous, short walk to the main drag, the fort, and especially across the street for clear views of the bridge with a small beach area and benches. Rooms are not large but big enough,... More

The ABI - Lakeview is a great "find." We stayed three nights and greatly enjoyed ourselves. The rates were very reasonable, it was convenient to get the discounted Shepler's ferry tickets (including passage for our tandem bicycle!), the room was wonderfully decorated, everything was simply spotless, the in-room HVAC was not at all noisy and worked well, and the staff...

Owners very nice, beautiful flowers, grounds were immaculate, pool very clean. Rooms were clean. Breakfast room is very, very tiny. Breakfast is really a continental breakfast with, no meat, no toast and only hard boiled eggs. Bathroom very tiny. Our sink ( outside of bathroom), was golden yellow formica and looked like it was from the 70's. wifi in the... More

Comfortable facility and delightful location across from the park and the lake and bridge viewing. The flowers and grounds were beautiful. The staff was welcoming and warm and knocked themselves out. The Continental Breakfast can be served to your room. The pool was warm and there were Adirondack chairs outdoors on the lush lawn for watching the sights.

Nice, clean property not too far from town. They have some themed rooms which include a wine & cheese happy hour from 6:00-7:00. The rooms are a little small but adequate. The large pool was heated to 88 degrees which was fantastic; the pool is only open from noon - 9:00 p.m. Check-out from the hotel is 10:30 a.m. The... More

We stayed for 2 days and were completely satisfied with our stay. We had a king themed room and a queen themed room for our other traveler. Everything was clean and we enjoyed our stay. Beds were comfy with plenty of pillows and blankets. Lighting was good as well as the AC. The bathrooms are small with the sinks on... More

This is me and my husbands secound stay at this Jem of a motel in mackinaw city. After staying here i would not stay anywhere else in town. So many great things to say about American Botique Inn so to start the motel is just a small family owned establishment. The owners and staff are so accommodating. The head house... More

Theme room well decorated, clean but a little small. Bathroom small but sink is on the outside, which was nice. Enjoyed being across the street from the lake shore. Nice pool, nice grounds. Breakfast could be better.

My boyfriend and I are staying here for the weekend and even he is impressed with the charm of the place!! It's very unique, not like the typical chain hotel rooms. You can tell the owners take great pride in this place. The cleanliness is impeccable!! Even the crystal chandler in my room sparkles!! The bed is extremely comfortable and... More
