The hotel is clean, rooms are decorated adorably, each of them with a different theme. Good mattress with a memory foam on the top. The staff is courteous. Great loocation in front of the lake. On the other sude, the hotel is quite old, the bathrooms need a renovation. If you miss the good old days, this is the plac... More

Just back from four nights at the American Boutique. This was our first time in the area. We found the hotel enjoyable from the point of view of location, management, fellow guests, comfort and charming breakfast room. We travel a lot, and do a lot of checking before booking, so the $112 we paid in high season for this place... More

Nicely themed rooms, seemed clean and orderly. Owners were on premise and nice. The wine reception was a nice touch. We didn't use the pool but it was well maintained and others were enjoying it. We'd recommend it again to someone looking for a reasonable/simple motel location.

My granddaughter and I stayed along with my pet Shih Tzu for 2 nights in July. Although the room was small, it was exceptionally clean and comfortable and it appeared to have been recently updated. Everything looked new. The theme rooms were adorable! It was in a prefect location for us - across from the lighthouse and the park along... More

My husband and i stayed at the American Boutique Inn for two nights. We found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. Although the rooms are older, we thought they were very quaint. Our room was very clean and the hotel itself was very quiet. Great location and in walking distance to everything. The only thing I felt was... More

Bath room in room 110, is so small that it's unbelievable. There is not much room to take a shower. The tub is very slippery. The entrance door when close daylight cones right through it. No door stop seals. Not much for a breakfast. Same food high in sugars everyday.

My husband and I were on our HONEYMOON!!! We had prebooked this DIVE based on its reviews and the fact that it was the ""4th best hotel"" in Mackinaw City!!! WHAT A LOAD OF @$!#!! The only reference closely related to the ""Roman Holiday""" that was supposed to be our ""THEME ROOM"""was a cheap movie poster framed on the wall..There... More

Upon your departure, my wife and I inspected your room thoroughly and found none of the conditions you have mentioned. The tub enclosure did have hair in it, but it had been used by you, your husband, or both. No ants were discovered in the bathroom or anywhere else in the room. Your review is especially peculiar because the room... More

Cute, bathroom needed an update. Shower needed adjustment. HOT water, hard to adjust! Nice proprietors, will bring breakfast to your room, and it's Free. Very close to the Mac Bridge! No elevator to upstairs rooms. Nice outdoor pool. Beautifully kept gardens.

I booked this room based on the very positive online reviews. We were traveling from the Upper Peninsula, so, we checked in past 9pm. As soon as I opened the door, the musty smell hit me in the face. I would've checked out right then, but it was the 4th of July weekend, and I assumed that all of the... More

While your review was certainly not complimentary, we certainly appreciate it as a leak was discovered in the room rented to you several days later. It was a slow leak in a sink trap under the vanity area. We were able to remedy the problem in short order. We are sorry for the inconvenience that you encountered and hope that... More

If I could rate this Inn only on the location, it would get a 10. I was somewhat disappointed. The room had a musty smell and the sink would not drain in the bathroom. Had trouble with the water in the bathtub, either too hot or too cold. It was clean, and the owners are very helpful and friendly. But... More
