Had a short but wonderful stay at this quaint, fairly priced "motel". From the fountain ambiance to breakfast in the comfy bed, we will be coming again! We also loved the close proximity to the lake and downtown Mackinaw City.

We joined family who also rented rooms. We all had first floor rooms. The description of the rooms are accurate. If I were to stay in the town longer than 2 nights, I would have loved staying there. The hotel is close to the ferry and the shuttle is there in literally minutes of the call. Everything is Very Clean... More

Excellent location an friendly staff. We also liked the outdoor pool and the view of the Mackinac bridge. The rooms were a little small but manageable. This hotel was repurposed as a boutique hotel and they did a great job. The place is very clean and within walking distance to the ferries for Mackinac Island or the front desk can... More

This was our first visit to the area in several years so I spent a large amount of time reading what were medicore reviews of other options before choosing this Inn. Unique 50 style motel redone in several themed well decorated rooms one of which we stayed in for 3 nights. Owned by a local friendly family which was available... More

The American Boutique Inn is very nice hotel, but the hotel is not for everyone. We loved out stay and will stay again if we return to the area. If you like supporting independent ‘mom and pop’ establishments who are putting their heart and soul into their business: this hotel is worthy of your consideration. The hotel is an early... More

Our first room's bathroom door did not close. To be fair, I could open/close it with force, but the kids could not. I believe the room was freshly painted, and that was the cause of the problem. When we reported it to the front desk, we were advised by a woman that we could "upgrade" to another available room for... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I was glad to upgrade your room when you experienced the problem with the bathroom door. If we feel that the problem cannot be corrected within a very reasonable amount of time, we always upgrade if another room is available. Pool hours are noon 'til 10pm throughout July and August,...

We only stayed for one night because we were passing through. The facility is extremely clean and pleasant. We were invited to a wine and cheese reception in the evening and breakfast in the morning. The very pleasant desk clerk also told us that we could have coffee and a continental breakfast delivered to our room in the morning if... More

We stayed here for two nights. The rooms were so cute, not decorated like a typical motel room. Quiet location, right across from the water. Within walking distance to town and the ferry docks. The owner/manager was really friendly. We were able to buy our discounted ferry tickets right at the front desk. The pool is heated to 88 degrees... More

This was a beautiful and friendly Inn. The staff including the maid were pleasant and extremely helpful! The location was excellent! The pool was small but heated and very relaxing. If you are looking for a quiet and pleasant stay this is the place for you!

My husband and I stayed here on July 13, 2013. We loved it. We stayed in one of their "themed" rooms, Endless Summer. The room was clean, charming and smelled great.
