We actually found this quaint smaller value priced clean jewel of a motel after reading several bad large chain overpriced motel reviews on Trip Advisor and then reading the great reviews about this delightful place. The reviews were dead on correct.The special movie themed rooms are precious, the individual owner assistance in choosing our options in the area was very... More

I'm a college student who has stayed in the dinkiest of motels on roadtrips. This place has less amenities than the $40/night places I've been. No fridge, coffee maker and coffee/hotchocolate/oatmeal packets in the room, no microwave, no towel rack near the sink, the curtains wouldn't close all the way so we safety pinned them shut. Only a single bottle... More

My husband and I had just dropped our daughter off at college and we wanted to get away for a couple days without spending a fortune. I found the American Boutique Inn online and was very pleased with our stay. We got there just in time for the wine and cheese reception and it was nice to relax after a... More

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.

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
