From making first contact to book the room the experience with My Friends Inn was excellent, our stay there was equally wonderful. Michelle and Steve were welcoming, super friendly, helpful, suggesting things to do and where to go, restaurants (even peanut free ones), the rooms are in great shape having everything you need including fast Internet access all in a...

The room is small, but the hospitality is huge. We were greeted at the door with a handshake and a smile. We had everything we needed. We were told that if we forgot something, just ask, we would have it. The cleanness of the room, bathroom, etc. was exceptional. The bed was very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this place... More

We stayed at My Friends Inn one night and would have loved to stay for more. Very friendly staff and owners and excellent rooms. We arrived a little before 2 in the afternoon and there was a nice note letting us know they would return shortly. We took a tour of the town and arrived back at the Inn around... More

I loved the inn! It's my favorite place on the island. We felt like it was home away from home. When we left we felt like we were leaving friends we had known forever! Michelle and family are super kind and will cater to whatever your needs may be. The rooms are comfortable and homey. Clean, clean, clean+++. Michelle has... More

Our family of 4 loved it. Area was quiet and the Room was really clean and new. Bed was comfortable with lots of good pillows. Good little fridge and Tassimo helped us get off on to a early start. Wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed for 4 nights over the August long weekend. Couldn't have asked for a nicer place or more accommodating hosts (thank you Michelle and Steve)! Super clean room. Comfy bed and nice bathroom. Nice porch seating out front of room door...and car parked immediately in front of room. Made use of the outdoor patio and bbq. Will definitely stay again.... More

We truly felt a part of the family. A beautiful, quaint and homey room, many personal touches, the perfect porch to sit and have a coffee in the morning, amazing pieces of advice given by Michelle that definitely improved our trip on Manitoulin. We will be returning! AnnaLise and Alex

We stayed here back in May and the room was clean and very functional. Had a great (somewhat rainy) weekend on Manitoulin Island and couldn't have been happier with our choice of My Friends Inn. If we visit Manitoulin again we'll definitely stay at My Friends Inn! Many thanks for a great stay.

Lovely rooms with all the right touches including a Tassimo for coffee and a kettle if you prefer tea. Enjoy a drink while relaxing in the comfy rocking chairs outside your room. This motel is family-run. Michelle, the hostess, goes out of her way to make sure your stay at the motel - and on the Island- is enjoyable. You... More

This little (7 unit) motel has recently been completely refurbished by a family. They have done a great job of making it into a small and comfortable establishment. The rooms are nicely furnished and there is lots of space in them. They are freshly painted in a nice neutral colour and appear light and airy when the natural light comes... More
