Charming owners and charming cat! Not so much an inn as a very nicely renovated motel, a row of eight rooms. The Inn comes complete with a charming cat who loves belly rubs. The rooms are well equipped and nicely appointed with coffee maker, microwave and some basic dishes. The floors are a nice hardwood and the in was clean... More

Room very clean and equipped with fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Owners cheerful, friendly and helpful with suggestions of things to do on the island. We enjoyed Sunday brunch with local people at the Manitowaning Golf Club very much. (Hotel guests were allowed a 10 percent discount). We found the Centennial Museum at Shaguiandah really interesting. Manitoulin scenery is wonderful, and... More

We stayed a night while in town for an event. The room was immaculate! There were all the amenities you could want or need in the room. The service was exceptional and had a very welcoming feel. The location is perfect for anyone planning to make day trips around the island as it is fairly central.

Our extended weekend stay at the motel was as good as last year. The owners (Bob and Maureen Friend) welcomed us and were extremely helpful. The rooms were spotless and well appointed. We had a wonderful time on the island due in part to our lodgings. We look forward to our return. The owners are constantly working around the property... More

We were passing through on a motorcycle trip and was heading for the ferry the next morning. Read reviews on TA and can't say enough good things about this place. The owners greet you, and take a personal interest. I think they live on the property too. It only has 7 rooms, newly renovated and just lovely! It's tucked back... More

We loved this little motel. A bit of retro, a touch of the cutesy charm that tells you it's a family run operation and good housekeeping made this place an absolute pleasure to visit. The owners where hospitable and kind, even offering to loan us their own bikes for a bit if we wanted. The area is unique and rather... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at Maureen & Bob's motel ... great spot. As everyone on Tripadvisor has mentioned, it's extremely clean and well run. We stayed in the room with a new King size bed which was very comfortable. Room is compact, but has everything you need and price is certainly right. Maureen and Bob were wonderful hosts .......

Just returned from our stay at Friends Inn. We stayed one night but we had tried to stay for more, but they were completely booked. Hosts, Bob & Maureen were welcoming, very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spotless, comfortable and very cozy. They have done a wonderful job updating their hotel. I would recommend this facility to anyone looking... More
