My wife and I travel with our dogs. We stayed here before without dogs and asked and they accepted dogs only in certain rooms. The rooms are nice and clean, managers are very nice and respectful. We have stayed in other motels in Mackinaw and they do not compare with American Boutique! In fact we are going there for a... More

We found this delightful motel to be as close to a bed and breakfast as you can get without being a bed and breakfast. It was very clean and well kept. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We will return.

Dear Barb... We really enjoyed having your senior group stay with us. It was a pleasure to serve you. As you know we opened up the hotel a week early to accommodate your group. We're looking forward to your visit with another group in may 2014. Winter well. Bill More

This place is certainly not your average corporate chain motel... It's so much more than that!!! I feel that it was ran more like a bed and breakfast which was an awesome and unique experience. Very quaint and classic rooms. We stayed in the "Gone with the Wind" room. The grounds around the building are kept up very nicely. Planted... More

The only thing would that the WiFi is too slow, comes in and out. Needs stronger signal. The room and area are clean and orderly. The staff are welcoming. It would be nice to find enclosed location for the ice machine.

We just celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary here again this year. Just love this place, not only are the owners very gracious and friendly, so is the entire staff. We love chatting and visiting with everyone at the great little continental breakfast and the wine reception in the evening. We come to just relax for 3 or 4 days each... More

I booked a room via American Boutique Inn's website for $86 per night for 2 nights. Not 5 minutes later, I had a phone call from the hotel telling me there was a mistake with rate on their website and that I would be charged an additional $100 for our stay. The man asked if I still wanted the room.... More

We're sorry that the rate you requested could not be honored. Our site clearly states that any reservation is on a "request only" basis until we confirm by e-mail within a 48 hour period. Our site was being modified with a new room type as you accessed our system, and therefore the glitch. Again, we are sorry, but the rate... More
