Michelle was so welcoming and helpful; we felt very comfortable in her beautiful motel. The bed and linen, as has been said before, were faultless, as were all the extra complimentary items. Having a kettle was a bonus, meaning a cup of tea was possible, not everyone is a coffee drinker! The gardens, with seating for guests, and a BBQ... More

Had planned to stay one night only, but ended up there for three nights. Spotless, quiet, and very welcoming hosts. Small town, but all basic amenities available; groceries, bank, LCBO, etc etc Convenient to the main road but just away from it enough not to be audible. Would recommend to anyone exploring Manitoulin Island.

We stayed at this lovely hotel for a curling bonspiel in Manitowaning. The hotel was full of other guests but our room was so quiet. The sound-proofing between the units is amazing. The room was spotlessly clean, comfortable beds with soft, clean bedding and pillows, table and chairs, coffee area with Tassimo, frig, and microwave, and free wifi. The bathroom... More

We stayed here on a road trip last summer. Hosts were friendly, room was very good, and bedding was great. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thanks. Not that much to do around here, but very beautiful.

Seeing as how few hotels/motels on Manitoulin Island have reviews on TripAdvisor, I did a lot of research on my own to figure out where would be best to stay in addition to the two options that were on this site at the time. In the end, My Friends Inn worked well with our schedule to arrive with the afternoon... More

Wonderful, comfortable place to stay. Very clean, new furnishings, very comfortable bed, soft thick towels, friendly staff. Not much else going on in town, but a great quiet get away. Lots of extras included.

This Inn/Motel was so cute on the outside, we knew the inside would be nice as well. It was beyond our expectations. Large, super clean, very modern, beautiful decor, well equipped, comfortable bed with duvet, Tassimo coffee maker, micro-wave, fridge, table & 3 beautiful comfortable chairs and a leather armchair. I must also mention an electronic fireplace on the wall... More

I have only positive things to say about my stay at My Friends Inn in mid-August. Between the truly excellent staff and recently renovated rooms, overall, this is a great little motel in the quiet village of Manitowaning. The rooms are very generous in size and have many added amenities that are unexpected, but totally appreciated, in a motel of... More

Beautiful clean modern room with two luxurious queen beds, nice bathroom, fridge, microwave, coffee making, dining table, central heating and separate electric fire, TV, free Wi-Fi & phone calls. Lovely quiet location and we were made to feel so welcome. I can not overstate how superior My Friends Inn is to any other motel I have ever stayed in. Highly... More

We stayed for one evening in late September and were very pleased. The room was very neat and clean and although not big was very adequate. And the price was very reasonable. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. This is a very small motel offering first class accommodations.
