Bob and Maureen Friend have a gem of a place here. It's a lovely property and easy to find. Grounds are beautifully maintained with gardens and deck to share. LOVE the wicker rocking chairs right outside our door. We had the king room. kVery spacious with small fridge, microwave, and Tassimo coffee pot (coffee provided). There's also free wifi, TV,...

Visiting Manitowaning is like stepping back in time to a simpler pace of life, and staying at "My Friend's Inn" completes the experience. It was so relaxing sitting out in front of our room reading in the sun in our rocking chairs, and getting a friendly visit from Mini Cooper the cat, who greets all the guests. We sipped our... More

A warm welcome. The room is comfortable and clean with all you need at a reasonable price. We couldn't find fault with the motel. The price is very reasonable. If you want à good dinner ,Try the restaurant down the road: reasonable princes for freshly cooked local fish.

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
