If you are choosing the best hotel in the area, choose this one! It is spotless and has nice rooms with a recliner, too. You can tell that the owners take pride in their business. They were very friendly and helpful. If you don't need a pool or breakfast, this is the place to stay!

4 or 5 annual visits as of 2016. High quality/value still maintained. Excellent condition, cleanliness, value and hospitality. Close to Silver Lake and Dunes. Oh, and a pretty good breakfast right next door. American Host Inn in Hart, Mi is independently owned and and exemplifies best practices in our opinion. Martha & Dave F. South Carolina

We arrived late evening and we were very exhausted after a long drive. The owners were helpful and straightforward with their rules at the inn. I was surprised how much they did care about keeping their inn quiet and they were really about protecting their guests' good night sleep. I am a light sleeper and have always trouble in hotels...

Very clean and quiet room, we stayed on a Monday night. I prefer a soft bed, my husband likes then a little firm, we both slept well. Only thing we didn't like was the room was very damp, everything felt clammy. Not sure if that was due to the extremely hot weather at the time or what. Probably would stay... More

These were wonderful and gracious guests ! And yes, her thought about the humid and hot weather causing some dampness was right on target. Normally, after each guest departs, we open windows to air out the room and do our cleaning during this time. With eight weeks of hot, humid weather we simply could rely only on the room A/C...

The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. The room was very clean and it included a large coffee pot and numerous cable channels. The hotel was also located near a large walking path and a restaurant at the other side of the parking lot.

Creepy owners. Freaks about kids dropping bread in the parking lot, had hair in the bed, and worst of all they threw my favorite hat away. I asked why they would through it away, and the response was "if it's your favorite hat then you wouldn't have left it". Who says something like that that owns an establishment. I will... More

Not a great visit for either the guests nor us as owners. It happens. First, one of their three little children dropped a partially eaten sandwich on the parking lot. When I asked them to be very careful in our nice rooms, Mom....did not like that. I understand. From then on it was finding fault with our room. Payback. They... More
