Convenient, clean and spacious. Great coffee, fresh donuts and muffins in the A.M.. Pool was larger than expected. I would stay here again if given the chance. Affordable, I would stay all over again.

Sorry if you were not happy with the hot tub, but as the desk person advised you the pump that circulated hot water stopped that night. It was replaced the first thing the next morning after I had a chance to go to West Branch and retreive one. The algae you think you saw is stains from the hard water... More

This motel is nicely situated close to the AuSable River and downtown Mio. The rooms are standard, but well kept and clean. Pool & spa are very nice. Morning coffee, juice and donuts are complimentary. Staff is most friendly and helpful. Owners are long-time Mio area residents and truly care about your accomodations and stay.

We enjoyed our three day stay at this property. It was comfortable and clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The only caveat is that the hotel blurb says breakfast included. That's true only if you enjoy bite-size muffins and pre-packaged grocery store do-nuts with your coffee. But, a true breakfast is available at several near-by restaurants, as well... More

We had to come to MIo to visit family and unfortunately it rained much of the time, however, the Inn was very accommodating to allow family to come and visit and... More

Nice rooms, clean, great location. The indoor pool and hot tub were lifesavers for a rainy weekend and cold tube trip! Breakfast was just fine. Nice fire pit and grill as well as deck over looking the valley. Ice for a dollar a bag, cant beat that. Only downside is the pool rules werent enforced across the board. Already booked... More

I can't say enough good things about our stay here. The people are wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and the view from the front door is beautiful. A cup of coffee in the morning sitting in a chair overlooking the valley is so relaxing and peaceful, just what you need to start your day off... More

We stayed at the AuSable Valley Inn for a two night get away and our very own Dream Cruise down the AuSable river. These rooms were great, good size, clean and quiet. The owners were very friendly and accommodating and gave us recommendations for dining that didn't let us down. Breakfast consisted of coffee, tea, juice, muffins and donuts. They... More

We just returned from our third time staying at The AuSable Valley Inn. The first time we stayed, we were enroute to someplace else. Now the AuSable Valley Inn is our destination. It's everything you could want as a family in a simple, but clean place to stay. The pool and hot tub area overlook the beautiful river valley. The... More
