We stayed at the American Boutique recently for 3 nights. It was very clean, the owners extremely helpful, the pool heated, the gardens were beautifully landscaped and it's in a good location. We had a theme room which was really pretty and made a change from the cookie cutter rooms of the chain hotels, however, we had 2 queens and... More

We had already visited Chicago and Toronto and had a few extra days so we came to Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island on a friends recommendation. We found the American Boutique Inn online. It is a lovely place but request a themed room over the standard room. The rooms are named after movies and are worth the upgrade. My kids... More

The name got me really excited. It was not cheap, either, so I mistakenly assumed it would be nicer than it actually was. It reminds me of those "motor inns" I used to stay in with my parents while travelling in the 1960s. There is nothing wrong with this, mind you, but the price was excessive for a property of... More

I was a bit weary booking a 'themed' room. I read and re-read reviews and decided to go with it. I'm SO glad I did! My husband and I stayed in Endless Summer room. The room was nicely decorated and very comfortable. After a long car ride it was nice to have the wine and cheese reception. There were some... More

Stayed 2 nights in the room 'Roman Holiday' which was decorated very prettily. Breakfast room near reception also lovely. The cheese and wine evening was an unexpected bonus on the first night! Gorgeous setting and one of the comfiest beds we've ever slept in, very enjoyable experience all round.

My wife and I booked a room here for OCT 11, 2013, - our 33rd Wedding Anniversary. It was part of a Northern Michigan Color Tour. We hope to have a great room, a nice dinner out to celebrate and enjoy our happy occasion. The hotel is no where near the top ten in Mackinaw City; Here is what we... More

Dear Cheryl... We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your visit with us. As luck would have it, you walked in off the street and got one of the two rooms in our establishment that have yet to be renovated on the night before we closed for the season. We have owned and operated this business for 30... More

We really liked this hotel, great location near the bridge park and short walk to downtown tourist area. The room was clean, bed comfortable and the wine tasting fun. We went down for the wine...

We stayed for one night before heading to the island. Innkeepers and staff were ver nice and had great recommdation for dinner. The room was charming and very clean. The bed was on the firm side for my personal taste, but that is the only critical thing I can say. The view of the bridge and water makes this a... More
